Hello All!

Forgive me for not posting new Chani and 9 adventures. This past weekend and on through to Monday, I was busy celebrating (and dreading) my 40th birthday. I had a few friends come up from Los Angeles and spend 4 days with the kitties and me.

Needless to say much fun was had and much food was eaten. Both Faye and Tina are slightly allergic to cats and kept the kitties out of the guest room as much as possible. The funny part is that 9 and Chani don't go into the guest room all that often. However, with the futon bed pulled out and PEOPLE in that room, oh boy was that the place to be! 9 did his best to sneak into the guest room behind Tina's back. 9 lay on Faye's lap as she played on my iPad while lying on the couch. Earlier, Chani lay between Faye and myself.

Despite allergies and 9 being his lovable naughty self, both of my friends had a blast playing with him. They tried to play with Chani too. Tina loved how Chani would fall over and play while lying on her back.

Faye stated her preference for Chani (but not in 9's presences) but did say that 9 is a sweetiepie/cutiepie boy too.

Anyhow, that is my excuse and I'm sticking with it. Now, I am off to enjoy my midlife crisis lol...
