Happy Two Weeks Anniversary, Ozzy!

Wow! This week was big for lil’ Ozzy. Joshua and him became closer friends. And Ozzy finally got neutered on Wednesday.Β  After we brought him back home in the afternoon, Josh’ was the one waiting for him at the door. But it didn’t take long, until both cats were their old selves, again. Ozzy: “Let’s play catch! TAP! You’re it!” Joshua: “Dangit, leave me alone little @#$%!” 😹

Happy One Week Anniversary, Ozzy!

Our kitty, Ozzy, has been with us for one week now. He plays with Sara, and the other pets; he nose-kissed Joshua on July 4th (Joshua is still not 100 percent sure, what to think of Ozzy. But he seems to tolerate Ozzy a bit more); after all this excitement, he had a little tummy bug on Friday; he eats and drinks a lot; and he grew a little bit bigger, since we’ve adopted him last Monday. I spoiled him with toys. Sara spoils him with a lot of attention, very day. Right now, he takes a break and snoozes on the ottoman. Mr. Ozzy has to be fit for tonight’s foot attacks. If he doesn’t claw my feet, he claws Kevin’s body parts I don’t really want to mention here. I know, Ozzy can be a little sh*t. That’s why we love him so much. And he fits perfectly into our family.

Ozzy, The Kitten

Say Hello to our new kitten, Ozzy, We’ve adopted him today. This morning I woke up, and decided, it’s time for a new cat to complete our house again, After Finley crossed the rainbow bridge, I had a hard time to even think about adopting a new cat for the last two years. But today was the day. I know Finley looks down from cat heaven, and is very proud that another animal found a furever home in our family.

Ozzy came home with us, and we introduced him to the gang. Luis sniffed out the box, while Ozzy tried to get out of it. Ozzy gave Luis a nose kiss, and they were buds from that moment onward. Chewbacca was next, he sniffed Ozzy’s butt. It’s funny, because this is usually the dogs’ job. But Chewbacca is a “dog” in his own way. Then our diva, Joshua, saw Ozzy. OMG, speaking of diva and drama. Joshua hissed and was mad, because he is so jealous. Chewbacca gave him a piece of his mind. And Joshua is mad at everyone, now. We have to give josh’ about 48 hours, and he will be alright. Even Lexi came out from her nap to welcome Ozzy into the family.

Sara played with Ozzy all afternoon. Now, they are both tired and take a nap on the couch. They literally pooped each other out.

Joshua’s Lazy Sunday

Sara stripped her bed, so we could wash her sheets and a few plush animals. She loves a fresh smelling bed on Sunday night, after a busy weekend; and so does Joshua. As soon as I fixed Sara’s bed, Joshua jumped up and took a nice Sunday snooze on the sweet smelling bed. It must be nice being a cat in our household. πŸ˜‰

Greenhouse Garden Project (Phase 1/Part I)

Finally, Kevin and I started my new project. Last week, I purchased the materials. And this afternoon, we’ve put the wooden frame together. But first I had to unlock and separate the greenhouse from its metal frame, before we could place the wood in the same spot. Kevin had some leftover wood blocks, we could use for securing the corners of the base. After the wooden base was done, we could screw the metal frame on the wood and reinstall the greenhouse. The greenhouse is so light, we just picked it up as a whole and moved it around as needed. Kevin and I decided not to put shelves in the greenhouse. We will have raised beds, like we had the first year.

Katelynn helped leveling the ground for the wooden frame. And she cleaning the soil out of the bottom of metal frame. She really enjoyed helping us with the project. Joshua came from the garage into the backyard, He played garden inspector and made sure, we are all doing our jobs well. Best way to keep an eye on all of us, is the view from the tree … or he just got bored and decided to chase the Brown-headed Cowbirds out of the Bradford Pear tree, before they would have pooped on us eventually.

Lexi turns 100

Many times, we thought Lexi won’t make it to 10 human years. There were also a couple of times, we’ve considered to put her down, within the last two years. But Lexi keeps going. She’s a trooper and not slowing too much down. And today, she turned 100 doggy years.

Gardening & Bird Watching

While I worked in the garden, Chewbacca hung out with me in the backyard. First, he ate some grass blades. And then he looked at the birds. There were so many too watch in the trees, in the bushes and on the fence. Chewbacca prowled on a couple of birds. But they were much faster. Sometimes, the birds startled him when the whole flock flew off into another tree. In the meantime, I planted my onion slips, rhubarb and strawberries. When I was done, with my garden work, Chewbacca was ready to come into the house. It was enough adventure for him in one day.
