No more booda dome

Our new booda dome is after all, a failure for us. Probably too small for our cats. I've been changing litter every other day and when I checked yesterday, there was urine outside of the box. Not good. Our cats never did that unless catbox is full/dirty. So yesterday, hubby & I got the Van Ness large kitty box with cover.

This is Hanna in her favorite roaching position. Roaching is the greyhound lingo for this position (similar to a dead cockroach's position-being belly up). Based on our experience, not all greys roach. I have only seen Louie do it 3X in the 1.5 years that we've had him. Hanna, on the other hand, is a true blue roacher. She roaches when she is relaxed, happy, or when she is just enjoying her sleep.

The Booda Dome

Got this new litter box for our cats. I think it is a bit small for Ringo who has slimmed down to 18 lbs already(hey, he used to be 20 pounds heavy) but both cats are managing, I haven't heard (or seen) any violent reaction so far. I have to change the litter every 2 days though, it doesn't hold as much litter as the bigger cat box types--and our cats are great pooping & peeing machines ;) Got it because it occupies a smaller space than the traditional rectangular catbox.

Greyhounds & Corns

We are on day 5 of applying the Durham's Wonder Salve on Hanna's corns. I have stopped giving her Deramaxx. She is less limpy. 2 weeks ago, our vet also hulled her left paw corn again. It is too early to tell if the Wonder Salve is really working but hey, she seems to be in less pain when she walks. So between the Therapaw bootie and the Wonder salve, there has been some improvement.

Tag Team

Louie & Hanna are notorious for bringing out all their toys & scattering them in our living room when they are in their playful mood. These pictures show the other critters interested in the dog toys...and beds.

More Montana Pics

Amazing beauty. I wish we were able to bring the pups with us. Would have been nice seeing their reactions to the water. Hanna loves being cool (hates heat) so she would have loved wading or swimming with Bella in those cool waters. Louie, I don't know. He just stands still when I give him his bath in the tub.

Montana 09

Husband & I visited my SIL and her family in their summer place in Montana 3 weeks ago. Gorgeous sceneries. Amazingly, the water at Flatheads Lake is also so clear. I hope the locals can maintain it so future generations can enjoy nature at her best....

2 cats & a robin

Shot taken a couple of weeks ago. Ringo & Sebastian were both intently watching a male robin perched on our courtyard fence. The robin was chirping and making tons of noise. The cats were probably thinking, "robin stew, robin sushi, robin french..."
