Today is a big day...

... for lots of folks.

Bailey started teaching high school English. I can't wait to hear how her day went.

And lots of relatives and friends started school, or college, or something. I know one who started a job.

Me, I got a new grandcat!...(He takes a dashing picture, don't you think?)

Laura and Ryan adopted him from the animal shelter in Denton. I mean, his days were numbered. If he hadn't been adopted, well, as I said, his days were numbered... till the end of this week. (I'm serious.)

Talk about a fortunate fella.

They've named him Scobi.

His new 'siblings' are Felix, Marti, Regina, Clyde and River (in the big tank)... and Lorenzo (who has his own bowl)...

Here they are...(Clyde and River are so small you can't see them.)



Hmm. You think Laura and Ryan might have a problem on their hands?
I hope not. I mean, some cats just go for canaries, right?

My other grandcats are Will's...

Here's Pretzel...
and Tambourine...
I don't know if they'll ever meet up with their cousin Scobi - and his fish-siblings...

... but I have been known to put together a pretty good family reunion...

... well, as long as everyone likes Mexican food.

In closing....here's their Uncle Shiloh...He likes Mexican food.

(I know I can get kind of silly on this blog.... but I hope you didn't miss my serious tribute to a wonderful lady... in the post right below ....)

I LOVE this post. I really really like all of your posts, but I LOVE this one! You have very handsome grand-kitties! And on the evening of the first day of school a little silliness was just waht the doctor ordered!

LOL, this post is too, too cute. TOO cute.

Sometimes you just HAVE to be silly. :)

Scobi is settling in nicely (you can read more about it in my blog). Still a little scared, but also curious. He hasn't really noticed the fish much yet, but I have my eye on him.

He's looking forward to meeting you!
