Benjamin (Benny) is with us for 9 ½ weeks, now. He got used to all of us and is an accepted member of the pack/pride in our family. Ozzy and Benny are BFFs. It helped Ozzy a lot, when another young cat came into our household. Joshua and Chewbacca are more relaxed, due to their ages. Ozzy and Benny have so much youthful energy and tend to play most of the night. Since, we’ve built a cat highway along the front room walls, Benny is not as intimidated by Zoey anymore. When he just has enough of her, he jumps from the cat tree onto the shelves and watches her from high above ground. Our sixth fur member is living the life.
Happy International Pluto Day (1930 – 2020)
Today was a nice, warm Presidents Day. The temperature gauge did show up to 77℉ (25℃). It was a bit on the humid side. However, it was pleasant enough for pulling some weeds in the garden. We have a couple more Grecian windflowers and our pink Hyacinths blooming in the backyard. The purple Hyacinths buds emerge as well. It can take only a couple more days, until we see them blossom. I’m getting ready to prepare the front yard for another warm season. Since it is in full sunshine, I have to make a plan what I will plant as drought tolerant flowers for the hummingbirds, butterflies and other insects. But first, I have to prepare the yard with plenty soil and mulch.
