After All, It IS Friday

At least someone is taking it all calmly...

    They'll look for a secure place to bundle if the noise gets bad, but they'll handle it better than we do.

    Cats have the innate ability to do nothing when nothing can reasonably be done.

    cats and hurricanes: having rode out more than one hurricane in the florida keys.... nothing like rita or katrina however.... and andrew blew to the north of where i was....but all kinds of weird ideas come to mind as these things bear down on ya. I lived on solares hill in key west for years (which is the highest point in kw, about 16 feet above sea level) and remember figgerin' that with an 18 foot storm surge me and mrs farmer could stand on the kitchen table and ride out the high water if worst came to worst.... we also decided we'd dangle the kitties from the ceiling fans if the water came rolling in .. Like i said... ya think weird things when there really ain't anything left but weird things to think. Thankfully none of that ever came to pass.... and i'm sure the kitties were equally relieved.

    Hang on Steve. I assume your relocating as far inland/Houston from the water as possible.

    Imagine how toasty warm it is between them. Makes me want to roll up on a cushion with my blankie. I'm in this goddam freezing cold automation room. Shivering in Florida in

    Take a cue from your cats; animals are smarter than people when it comes to weather (and a lot of other things).

    Given the awful traffic jams on the highways, you've done the best thing.

    Depends on the cat. And on the phenomenon.

    Some friends of mine were living in San Francisco when the 1989 quake hit. They told me that one of their cats was so freaked out that she tried to run up a wall, peeing the whole time. For months after the quake, they had a rainbow-shaped pee stain on their wall.

    Thanks, all. I'll write more after the storm.

    It would appear that Houston has missed most of the grief. That's a good thing. I hope Texans learn a lesson or two from this experience. The first lesson I wish for them is humility. I can't tell you how many times I heard the tone of superiority from my Texas cousins towards those poor souls from New Orleans. Barbara Bush only said outloud what she was hearing said at the Houston Country Club. Further down the feeding chain it got much more explicit.

    Be safe and be well.
