Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

Never a Dull Moment...

Came home from work today and realized the new kitten must have been quite busy today.  Incense sticks that were on top of the entertainment center were all over the living room floor.  Shadow (kitten) is meowing up a storm so I fill her food bowl and hear a rustling noise coming from the den.  Thinking it must be the biggest rodent thus far I set off to find it.  When I do find it, I don't rush to get it out, I rush to get my camera.  We all do that, right?

It wasn't a rodent.

It was this.  (Pardon the blurry photo, it wasn't to keen on sitting still long enough to get it's picture taken.)

No idea how it got in or how long it's been tormenting the kitten but...

I open the sliding glass door, in the hopes it will fly out, letting the dog in.  The dog immediately goes to eat all the kitten's food so I scramble to put the food up.  When I get back to the den I realize that the bird and the inside only cat are no where to be seen.  I put eyes on the cat and decide trying to handle two animals is better than 3.  I put the dog back outside and close the door.  Bird is now clinging to the front door screen but as I approach to open it, flies off.  I prop open the front door, again make sure I'm watching Shadow, and work on getting the bird towards the door.  It goes from living room to dining room to kitchen and then makes a clean flight out the door... with kitten close behind.  I catch kitten mid-air as she's lunging off the porch, bring her back inside and officially declare Winethirty.



  1. oh snap! that bird sure made a mess of things!
