We had fireworks last night both natural and man-made. One powerful zap from Mother Nature and poof, a blackout and a fried computer despite power-surge control. Fortunately everything is backed up but I’m unable to access any of my new posts or images. So, not only are we on vacation but on a forced blogging break. You’d think a freak-out was in order but relief reigned supreme. It’s this passion for excellence that drives us BUT…

Over the past year, we’ve posted over 600 posts, thousands of original photos at our two blogs and the gods shouted from the heavens, “Give Layla a break!” Sometimes, if you don’t make a decision to slow down, a decision is made for us. So, if you’d like to help us out while we catch our breath, please social media share any of our posts or images. Pin to your heart’s content, share on Facebook, Tweet ’til the birds or the cats come home. And vote for us Here to win the Pettie Award for best cat Blog. We’d appreciate it big time!

We have all kinds of goodies up our furry sleeves and will drop a post here and there to surprise you. This is when being a Cat Wisdom 101 subscriber is handy. You aren’t one? Just look on the sidebar for the Subscribe by email box. Odin and his prizeIn the meantime, we dug into our Cat Wisdom 101 photo library for some oldies but goodies. Enjoy! This is rare pic of Gris Gris climbing a tree. Unlike Odin, he’s is more down to earth.


And Merlin is doing more of this than ever. Except at dawn when he expects breakfast in bed, and gets it. I’m definitely coming back as a cat in my next life! It should be easy since I already speak the language.
