The weather is warm and sunny here in Chicago. Incredibly, on Saturday, we got over 6 inches of rain, which caused massive flooding in Chicago and Indiana The people who got flooded by the Chicago River are getting help from the city with cleaning up. We were lucky being on the third floor and just had a little seepage through a crack in the basement. Us cats, being cats, slept through it all. Momma and daddy did not leave the house except to get us food from across the street.
Here we are in our favorite spot.
Excuse us while we take a bath in the bathroom!
Have a great day everyone!

We are sorry to hear about Daisy's sister Pixie going to the Rainbow Bridge. We know how it feels to have lost a part of the family and that there is a deep hole in her family's hearts right now. Rest in Peace, dear Pixie.
On the soggy side of things, Chicago has been declared a disaster area, due to heavy rains causing major flooding.
Carmela: Momma, are we going to need a life jacket and canoe? Do I need to sit on my scratching post? Will we get water in our house like I saw on TV?
Momma: No, honey, we live on the third floor. I just hope I can get to work tomorrow.
Carmela: Whew! That's good. I don't like to get wet. And I hope you don't have to work tomorrow!
Momma: I don't think I will be that lucky. Now, let's go to bed because I need to get up early. Good night.

I am Carmela - Queen of all I survey.
As my first proclamation of the day, I banish the rain and dreariness from my domain. Then I order my momma to stay home with me because I miss her.
Momma: I miss you too muffin puss.
Oh well, all this makes me tired. I'm going to take my morning nap now.
Have a great week-end everybody!

Now for the nice part. This morning I burrowed into momma's bathrobe and purred real loud. Lucinda told me before she left for the bridge that it would be good for momma and me to do that once in a while.
Thanks for stopping by!

We here at Chicats are overwhelmed by all the kind thoughts and prayers.
It is a cool and dry day here in Chicago. It is peaceful in the house. All the anxiety is gone.
Lucinda was getting weaker by the day. I did all that the doctors told me to do. The daily medicine, the fluid therapy, the eventual modified syringe feeding. I knew that a choice had to be made to help her find her peace. She ended up making the choice for us.
She is with her family beyond the Bridge.
Purrs and headbumps.

Thank you to all of you who read yesterday's post and especially those who commented. Lucinda was a special friend who's life was too short.
When I have the energy, I will post about her life.
In the meantime, hugs and headbumps to all of you.
