Kitten, lappies, and dogs

I can't believe I've had the good 'fortune' to have this kitten adopt us, but he seems to fit right in. Took a few days before the pups settled down and realized kitty was here to stay, more or less.

He's waiting for me at the door when I come home from work, and sometimes when I take the girls out for our morning stroll. He eats his fill, finds a place to snooze a while, gets up, gets a drink and then is headed for the door again.

Sometimes he even want attention, which signals the pups to want attention at the same time. So, I wind up with kitty in lap, one dog standing with her front feet on my lap, and the other dog standing beside me pawing for some attention too. God should have given me 3 hands for this chore, but I have to do it all with 2. I'm greatful when it's snooze time because I end up with 2 free hands to wrap around the camera.

Ain't life fun?

I have been sorely disappointed again. Ike seems to breezing right on by us to the south. He'll head over to the gulf of Mexico without even stopping in to say 'Howdy'. I can't say I envy the folks who live on the northern coast of the gulf, but danged... why do they get all the hurricanes? I was hoping for one to come visit us between the August Primaries and the November General elections. How else are we going to get any time off for good behaviour?

Guess I'll just have to find some other way to 'enjoy' myself for the time being..
