Watching (and hopping) on Saturday

Good morning, blogosphere!  It's me, Olivia.  This morning, Tucker, Phoebe, and I are going on a Blog Hop, hosted by Two Little Cavaliers and Confessions of the Plume .  We're leaving Tanner and Finn at home, because ... well, just because.  I don't think they have to go EVERYWHERE I go!  After all, I let them live here, don't I?

Tucker wanted me to tell you that Mom finally helped us edit the sub-pages underneath our blog header that our friends Ann, Maggy, and Zoey at
Zoolatry helped us with when they did our new header for us last week.  I'd especially like to thank our Zoolatry friends for doing this for us, because now there is finally a picture of ME up in the header where everyone can see me.  Now, I do think MY picture could have been bigger ... but still ... it was a great job, and we are thankful. 

What else?  Oh, yes ... Mom has helped us update our blog roll - so that now we can keep better watch on what our blog friends are doing, and so can you!  Most recent posts from our friends are at the top,and now you can see a little thumbnail pic illustrating whatever their posts are about.  Hopefully you'll stop by and see some of them that you aren't acquainted with while you're hopping today.

Lastly, we are thinking about all of our friends, both in Blogland, and IRL, that are in the path of Hurricane Irene, most especially Ettel, Charlie, Emma, and Tigress at A Poodle and a Pitbull, and Sam, Marge, and  Layla at Marge Blog 

Tucker recently let Mom post on our blog about Hurricane Preparedness , and Ettel made a great point about making sure that we kitties are used to our crates or carriers so that if we do have to evacuate, we'll be used to the crates or carriers and won't stress.  All of the cat kids here love our carriers - Mom will occasionally take them out and hide treats in them and sprinkle them with catnip, which we certainly enjoy. 

Now, the other day, our friends Tena, Shayne, and Rio at Success Just Clicks were in something called an earthquake.  We have never been in one of those, and it sounds pretty scary.  Fortunately, our SJC friends are safe and sound, but if the worst had happened, Tena was definitely prepared.  Mom is already making plans to go shopping this weekend to get more first aid type emergency supplies.  We do have a first aid kit,but it only has the very basics. 

So ... it's time for us to hop now, but Hurricane Irene if you're reading this, just remember ....

I've got my eye on you ... and if you hurt any of my friends you're gonna have to deal with ME!

Olivia, my darling! Your picture is stunning--but it should be MUCH larger! Why does the woofie hog all that space, when you, a cat, a vastly superior being in EVERY way, are left to languish in s small square? You need your OWN blog! Yep. Get yer Mom right on it! Ha ha ha ;-)

Hi! We're waiting for that nasty Irene to come visit, and until she's been here and gone, we have a foster kitty with us. His name is Jack, and his shelter is a trailer park, and Mom says that's bad because they aren't good with High Winds. So the shelter wanted all the animals to go to foster homes for a few days, and guess what! They did it! All the animals got into foster homes by noon today!
