Well, I am trying to post this from my parents horribly inept internet connection. Wish they would hurry up and get broadband already. Their modem is only a 33.6 kbs ... So for now this post will be sans photo.

** Update****

hehheheh I told you he has fun here! This was first thing this morning, he decided a swim in the fish pond was in order ;)

Kiri started his drive down with a trip to the car in his cat carrier, no more weeks in hospital for me thanks! I definately learnt that lesson LOL. He had a great trip down though, sitting on my knee watching the scenery fly by, he definately gets a kick out of it. Although he would have appreciated a stop off in Brighton le sands for a huge flock of seagulls, he wanted them soooo bad!

Kiri loves this house, he spends all his time running no prancing up and down the halls, and strutting off his stuff, since this place is so much bigger. Then he rolls artound and around on the persian rug, which is much softer than the industrial grade carpet in our dining room. Then there is the best bit, the birds. Sulphur crested cockatoos, rainbow lorikeets, King Parots, bulbuls, wattle birds, indian mynors, various doves, he loves them all. He will sit still in the window for hours, hardly moving except for swishes of his tail and mmmeeerrroooowww, which to me translates as I WANT IWANTIT NOW! too cute! But you can't forget the grass, he walks around the garden, pausing momentarily to sample the wide variety of grass, he definately ius a grass conisour. Then he spies the indian runner duck and all the chickens my parents next door neighour has, he crouches down next to the fence and will watch them. The duck is not the smartest bird, once he came right up to the wire fence, that is when Kiri struck and grabbed him around the neck SQWARK!!!! then the duck was gone and Kiri had to realise that the duck would never be his, he does wish though.

Ok now it is time for me to stop gloating about my own incredibly cute kitty, and pause for one of our WCB regulars, Macroom. Macroom the new darling of Stephanie and Alex's life, not to sure about the pups but I think they are coming around. I would like to share a message from Stephanie with you ( I hope this is ok!)

Hi Clare!I hope you and the boys are doing well...I just wanted to let you know Macroom may be absent from this week's WCB. We're taking him to the vet tomorrow, and I have no idea what condition any of us will be in this weekend.We thought it was just a hairball, but throughout the week, he's been declining. Shallow breathing/wheezing, little to no appetite (to the point where he's barely drinking water), and just general lethargy/apathy. I'm more than a little freaked, so wish us well tomorrow!-- Stephanie

*** UPDATE********

HI Clare!Thanks so much for mentioning Macroom.We just got back from the vet, and unfortunately, things do not look good. They've ruled out leukemia, but based on his (seemingly) deteriorating condition, she's not hopeful of a happy outcome.He's jaundiced, anemic, lethargic...and breathing poorly. He's been given something to pump up his blood, and I get to administer two different pills to him twice a day. But if he isn't showing improvement by Monday, we go back for chest and stomach x-rays. And the vet was honest with me, saying there's a really good chance he's just not going to recover. Of course, I'm devastated. And there's little I can do to help him! That's what's most frustrating, I think.Please continue to send good thoughts our way; the little guy really needs them

*** UPDATE****
To find out how the cute little Macroom is progressing visit Stephanies update post! Get well little guy

So I hope you will all gather together, visit Stepahanie and Macroom and let her know that we hope that Macroom will be ok. Kiri and I are thinking of you. xxxxxx

SQUARK!!!!!  I LOVE it! You are the absolute best when it comes to spelling out animal noises (and that scary muehehehe one). Hope you are having as much fun down there as Kiri. Parrots and rainbow lorikeets and cockatoos outside the window? Sounds like paradise! And not just a cat's paradise. : )

Clare, looking forward to a Kiri shot, but your description is so vivid, I can almost see him rolling around on the persian rug. I will head on over to Dispensing Happiness ~ I love that little Macroom.

Hello Clare!
Made it in for the weekend Cat blogging!
Caramel loves to hang out on my son's shoulder -- he totes her everywhere! She got her name because she looks all caramel colored and then someone rolled her in oreos or something! LOL

Hello Clare,

Here is a photo of Opium: sometimes, she takes herself as a goddess! And as I saw this photo, I was wondering maybe she's right! ;)

Now that is one wet kitty!!! =o) It sure is something else to realize that while it is the "sleeping season" here, you are in the "wakening season" there. I'm looking forward to what you write up about your holidays! Are OzLanders as freaky about cookies and other homemade goodies as we are this time of year?
