One Step Forward, Two Steps Back

My human received notices today that because of her part-time job she now is no longer qualifed to receive food stamps or health coverage through HIP.  She is crying and trembling and doesn’t know what to do.

Hurricanes

Hurricanes Harvey and Irma have destroyed much of Houston and the entire state of Florida.  Last night there was a telethon on tv asking for donations to help.  This morning watching the news the people in Florida may not have power until the 22nd of this month.  The Naples area was one of the hardest hit.  This is where my human’s father used to live and work until his death in 1991.

Let us hope that hurricane Jose doesn’t hit the US at all.

Hugs and prayers, Ali

Frustrating day

Today was really frustrating for the human.  Her postage machine decided to act up while she was running mail.  It was down for about a hour and then it needed more stuff done.  By the time it was up and running she made a couple of boo boos because she was trying to get caught up.  She owned up to them right away.  Luckily she still has a job.  She is never wearing the stressed out cat t-shirt again.  It is going in the trash.

Thank you all for potp and kind thoughts.

Hugs and purrs, Ali

Rough Week

My human has had a rough week.  With all her medication changes happening she is making mistakes at her work and almost got fired yesterday.  She is having major anxiety and fear issues.  The anti-depressant she was taking made her extremely dizzy and caused her to have a nightmare.  She hasn’t had a nightmare in 15 years so that was disturbing to her.  She talked to her counselor and they are looking for a different way to treat her anxiety.

Now hurricane Irma is going to hit Florida.  To all my furriends in that area, stay safe.

Hugs and purrayers, Ali

September Musings

Well, here it is the first of September and I haven’t written anything for a couple of weeks.  Thanks to my human’s new part-time job we didn’t have to move or become homeless.  She has been stressed out about this and her blood pressure is high and her depression hit with a vengence.

Prayers for all those affected by Hurricane Harvey.  I have been watching the reports about this and am struck by the awesome forces of nature.  Seeing the people help each other, no matter of race, wealth or gender.  People helping animals get to safety and hopefully reunite with their humans.

Hugs and purrs, Alicat

Order of the Arrowhead

I am now an inductee into the Order of the Arrowhead at Cat Scouts.  I never even gave it a thought that this would be the year that I would be chosen.  It’s a big honor to be chosen.  The big ceremony will be next month.

The blanket, compass, egg and matches were all I could take with me into the wilderness as part of the initiation ritual for becoming a member of Order of the Arrowhead.

Also seen here, the cake for the new members, my membership card and the sash I can wear on my uniform.

Hugs and purrs, Ali

Summer Camp at Yosemite

Last night was the s’mores recipes.  They will be put into a booklet.  Some of them sounded super fantastic.

The nominees for Order of the Arrowhead were chosen and I am one of the 7.

Today we had a poetry workshop and we wrote 3 poems.  Two of them were to be about summer camp and the third about cat scouts.  Tonight is the knowledge bowl and the nominees for Order of the Arrowhead are going to be turned out into the wilderness with a loincloth, a blanket, an egg, two matches and a compass.

Tomorrow night will be purrmotions, stories, closing ceremonies, and awards.

Sunday we will break camp in the morning.  We can stay for the birthday party if we want.  Oh and we can look at the falling stars too.

Hugs and purrs, Ali

Summer Camp, craft projects

We made a garrison cap, cat size of course, and had to get a picture of it on said cat for extra points.

We also made an infinity scarf out of a t-shirt.

Homer led us on a bird watching expedition.  Since I wasn’t there “live” I scrolled down and saw all the birds so I did get credit for it.

Tonight, s’mores competition and Order of the Arrowhead selectees.

Summer Camp, Day 3

We learned all about water safety and swimming.  We swam in a cool lake.  It’s very pretty here at camp.  There was cheerleading later on and Denmaster has promised to put all the cheers into a booklet for us before camp is done.

Today and tomorrow are craft days.  With my human on a different schedule I will be doing crafts later.

Here are some pics of the fun we had in the water.

Summer Camp, the first 2 days

Cat Scout Summer Camp has started.  We traveled by bus to Camp Curry in Yosemite.  We unpacked our bags, located our cabin and gathered around the campfire for our first meal together.  We then had a snipe hunt and a memorial service for our dear friend and fellow scout, Hermes.

Day 2:  The scouts hiked up Half Dome.  Amazing view!  After we all hiked back down and got back to camp there was a lot of napping going on.  Once we got all refreshed, we gathered around the campfire again for some yummy food and fellowship.

Here are some pics for you:
