Happy Holidays from Britta, Onyx, Ebony & Obsidian!

Happy Holidays 2013

The kitties have had an interesting year with new kitty Obsidian (Siddy for short) becoming a lap & snuggle hog, and throwing a wrench between siblings Ebony & Onyx. The boys are best buds now and will play and cuddle, but Ebony is only just beginning to tolerate Siddy a full year after he moved in. Siddy likes to tease her, but she overreacts, causing crazy loud and sometimes destructive chases through the whole house. Here’s hoping for household harmony in the near future, but at least they were all sharing the sunshine in the window for about 15 minutes while I could run and grab the camera for this photo! :)

Thankfully I’m overall healthy, but this year I’ve made it through plantar fasciitis heel pain, a broken toe, and a foot sprain so bad I had to wear a fancy removable walking boot cast for 3 weeks and wasn’t fully healed for about 3 months. Then after I had recovered from those, summer Cinema Brittahytta movie nights, and Halloween chaos, I tried implantable contact lens eye surgery in November, which has left me in glasses for a couple months while waiting until I can have LASIK that will hopefully bring me to acceptable vision without external aids. That would be a dream come true since I was 6 years old, so please wish me luck!

We wish everyone a happy holiday season, and may you have a fabulous 2014!

Happy Holidays 2012
Getting Along?Yes, that is a third kitty you see! I thought two cats was plenty, especially the Dark Duo with all their creative chaos, but this tiny stray boy was persistent, living in my yard since April, meowing for both Ebony & Onyx at the front and back screen doors, but running away when I would come to say hello. I finally started feeding him on the front porch in August, and he was still wary of me but would let me get a little bit closer each feeding. I risked a quick pat on the head one day and he flinched, but the next day I got a stroke from head down the back of his neck, and a lightbulb went on over his head “ooh I LIKE this!” He has been my friend ever since, and he’s especially fond of tummy rubs, surprising when only a month earlier he wouldn’t even let me touch him. Since he came inside in early November he has never wanted to go outside again. I think he knows how good he has it! Onyx gets along with everyone so the boys are buds already, even if five-year-old Onyx doesn’t want to play as much as young Siddy. Ebony is still hissing and growling at Siddy sometimes, but I did catch all three snoozing on the couch last week, so we might eventually have a happy household. :)

We wish everyone a happy holiday season, and may you have a fabulous 2013!
