Moved to US in Feb 07.

Surf’s up for Mandy

Mandy left for California with her mum, M, and “sister” Merlea on Feb 1.

M emailed an update on them today:


I don’t know if I already emailed you about the trip home… my brain has been in a whirl since landing and my memory is just starting to come back to me. The girls did FANTASTIC!! they were such troopers and have fully recovered since. i’ve moved them once already from the hotel to the tiny studio apt i’m living in, but they have a great time staring out the huge windows at the passer-byers…

just wanted to let you know all was good. i wake up with one of them on my head and the other on my stomach every morning. once the surf season hits i’ll try to get pics of them in bikinis to send back. mandy might be game, but i think merlea would prefer to stay in the buff.

the pic is of the hotel we stayed at. my mom is on the other side of the door teasing merlea with her fingers.

big kitty hugs!!!

Visit! Mandy and Merlea

Yesterday, we paid a second visit to Mandy, who was adopted late last year. The first time we visited was early this year, and she did not look very different from this picture of hers we used to post her adoption notice.

Yesterday, it was clear how much she’s grown!

Mandy is the second child of M. Merlea is the first. This picture isn’t so clear (simply because photographer calsifer sucks at digicam pic taking) , but Mandy just has a splash of tabby on her right flank, which seemed to have been leeched from the corresponding location on Merlea’s side!

M gave the girls their high, and this is the result – the girls spacing out on catnip:

Here’s the girls in action, junkified and high (my first attempt at vidding, so please bear with me – it was really entertaining, ring-side):
