Princess Ashlyn here,This morning Monika gave me some cuddles, then brought me into the bedroom and gave me to Bob who was still half asleep. I usually try to run back off the bed, but today I let him cuddle me for a bit.

Hey, everybuddy!  A few weeks ago, I joined Cat Scouts.  What’s Cat Scouts, you say? Cat Scouts is an organization founded to purrmote the development of cats into good catizens. The Cat Scout motto is “Be Purrpared” and the Cat Scout Slogan is “Do a Good Purr Daily.”   As a Cat Scout, you’ll make new furiends, and you can work on earning merit badges for camping, friendship, physical prowess, going to the vet and more. What’s even better…it’s totally free to join! And we get to wear uniforms!  Don’t I look cool in mine?  You can read more about how to join Cat Scouts by clicking HERE. Since joining Cat Scouts, I’ve earned merit badges for Journalism, Dentistry, Athletics, Gardening, Tent Camping, Computer Technology, Bird Study, The Bitey, Friendship, Basketry, Tree Climbing and Mammal Study.  Whew!  I know…I’ve been busy.  But there’s still more badges for me to earn! And this past week I was honored by being named Cat Scout of the Week!  I couldn’t believe it! Some of you have joined Cat Scouts, too…like Raz, Austin, Sammy and Mauricio.  I hope more of you join.  It’s a whole lotta fun.  Ernie wants to join but he doesn’t take anything serious.  There’s no way he’d be a good Cat Scout. C’mon!  Join Cat Scouts…and Be Purrpared for the Adventure of Your Lives!  This is Cat Scout Wally signing off.  *SALUTING*

Daphne and I call it the Observation Deck. It’s really a pillow. Well, it’s a stack of pillows, behind Daphne’s head, in our bed. Thomas recently started sleeping there. And we thought it was adorable, until we didn’t. Let me rephrase that. It was never not adorable to Daphne. She still finds it adorable. I’m the one who stopped finding it adorable. Why? Because Thomas woke me up by snoring. "Snore? Not me. You've got the wrong cat." function changeWidth(obj) { if(parseInt($(obj).parent().width()) > parseInt($(obj).width())) { $(obj).parent().css({'width':$(obj).width()}); } if(parseInt($(obj).width()) Yes, you read that right. My cat woke me up by snoring. It wasn’t just a freak thing that happened once. It has happened three times since the Observation Deck was declared open to cats. "Quiet, Thomas, you'll wake the Cat Dandy." function changeWidth(obj) { if(parseInt($(obj).parent().width()) > parseInt($(obj).width())) { $(obj).parent().css({'width':$(obj).width()}); } if(parseInt($(obj).width()) I know, I know. When most cats snore, it’s nearly inaudible. And it’s adorable. Of course you’d say that, because it’s not keeping you awake. It has kept me awake. Nonetheless, I haven’t closed the Observation Deck to cats, even though I could. I’m big, compared with a cat. I could move the freakin’ Observation Deck and fix the problem if I wanted to. function changeWidth(obj) { if(parseInt($(obj).parent().width()) > parseInt($(obj).width())) { $(obj).parent().css({'width':$(obj).width()}); } if(parseInt($(obj).width()) But I haven’t. And I won’t. In fact, I don’t move Thomas during the night when he snores, even though I’ve had a bit of trouble sleeping lately, and Thomas has exacerbated that trouble. I nudge him a little bit and hope he’ll stop. Sometimes he does. Sometimes he doesn’t. Regardless, during the day (take today for example, because it happened again last night) the whole thing seems absurd, kind of funny, and well, just so cute. My point? Cuteness always wins. "What? It's morning? Where'd everybody go?" function changeWidth(obj) { if(parseInt($(obj).parent().width()) > parseInt($(obj).width())) { $(obj).parent().css({'width':$(obj).width()}); } if(parseInt($(obj).width()) What propelled this concept to Cat Dandy status was a victory scored by cuteness on a recent night. It makes the snoring incident on the Observation Deck seem insignificant. It involved a raccoon. Some backstory: Raccoons love our backyard. They have massive parties there. Daphne and I commonly wake up to find cushions pulled off the outdoor furniture, the birdbath upended, holes dug in the grass, and dirty footprints and dislodged bricks at the point where they climb the fence. It’s no overstatement to say that we don’t like raccoons one bit. More backstory: One night while returning home a couple of years ago to a previous residence, I encountered three raccoons on the next-door neighbor’s front porch. I knew they were a problem. I had heard them fighting in the neighbor’s backyard a few nights prior, and it was as hellish a noise as I’ve ever heard -- like a cat fight, except with bears. “I’m human,” I thought. “Many animals fear humans. My presence will scare the raccoons away, at least for the moment.” So I walked toward them and the neighbor’s porch. They all stopped what they were doing. Two stood up o
