Marlene's latest travels - Baltimore, MD

Hello friends! Last week, I had the distinct pleasure of going to Balitmore, MD and meet up with dear Lisa of Hubble Space Paws.

Lisa, graciously, took me around to her favorite restaurants. Clementine was the first of number of stops. I enjoyed a delicious mushroom tart and a spiced melon soup. Delicious!

Now, being from the Bay Area, I have always enjoyed Dungeness Crab. It's my favorite. Well, now, I have a new favorite. Jimmies... Maryland blue crabs cooked with Old Bay Spice... wow... so very yummy!

Now, you are all here to see kitties, so let me show off my photos of 5 of the 7 feline inhabitants of Lisa's home. First off, here is Jerry.

He stays under one of the chairs. When the other kitties sleep, he comes out for a little bit. Jerry is a bit shy and a former feral. He's pretty big and reminds me of Q who came before.

Here's darling Sophie. She didn't come out for me. Apparently, I was a bit too much for her, so she stayed under one of the other chairs.

Here is Buddy. What a sweet boy! He's got some issues with his skin, but oh wow, what a darling. He investigated my backpack which is covered in 9, Chani and Sheamus Popoki's scents, I'm sure.

He then stood on the stairs so I could properly give him attention and pay my respects hehe

Here is Annie. She's sequestered in Lisa's bedroom because she has been a bit too adventurous of late. Running outside, getting into some tussles. Oh dear, Annie, inside is great!

"RAWR!" she says, "Let me out!!!" Oh, I'm sure Lisa will let you out again when you are all healed up.

And finally, my new best kitty friend in Maryland. Bitty. Bitty was a bit shy at first, but then after a while, she warmed up to me and let me love on her a lot!

And there she is above us all on the kitty walk way. I'm so envious of the kitty walk way! I'm sure my three would love one like that. Maybe one day!

I did catch a glimpse of Lucy, but she moved far too quickly for me to take a photo. AND, I did see dear Peggy Sue who let me pet her a lot. But, by that time, I had put my camera away.

Thank you so much to Lisa for making my trip to Baltimore so special! And thank you for sharing your darling kitty posse!
