Hi! Maxx here, fresh from my daily review of the troops.

All are well. They don’t eat much and none have strayed out of line… too far out anyway. I have to keep an eye on the rats because, well, they’re rats. But my gray rat shows promise. He’s personable, bright, intelligent. He might need a promotion.

But that white one… nope. That one isn’t exactly the sharpest bulb in the crayon box! Major lieutenant Busy Bee says private White Rat talks too much and since only two of us with anything important to say live in this room, it doesn’t take a rocket surgeon to figure out who he’s been chatting up!

An uneventful weekend for Erinn, an anxious weekend for us with no baby Niblets delivery. Plus today, our air conditioning is being replaced! Noise, duct work workers and electricians milling about in all rooms of our house – Erinn’s taking it all in stride covered up in her big, private cage… unlike some other poor kitties who are hiding under beds and in closets!

  1. Erinn is getting pretty big. It looks like hose little ones could be arriving fairly soon. White rat looks like he’s pleading his case to Maxx. We suspect anything he has to say is falling on deaf ears. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Misty May, Mauricio, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  2. Maxx, that white guy does have shifty eyes. Watch out for him.

    Erinn looks like she’s ready to pop!

  3. Is that white rat teasing you?
