Gettin' The Hang Of It

Zowie, Batman, we just had a 6.5 earthquake on the North Coast, about 22 miles offshore. Boy am I glad we weren't up here on our tree, because it was teetering. No, we're under the bed together and we won't come out.

Mom says if we were in a city somewhere, a 6.5 earthquake might have leveled everything. So we're feeling mighty lucky. About the only thing that's not working for us right now is cell phone service.

Earthquakes are scary when they're happening but they're few and far between. I'd much rather have to put up with this now and then than deal with hurricanes, tornadoes, blizzards, landslides, fires and God knows what else befalls other places on earth several times a year, every year. Those poor animals who wind up homeless and family-less, my heart goes out to them.

I think we may just spend the evening under the bed, until the coast, as it were, is totally clear. We might not be out of the woods yet.

Hope you're staying warm and dry!

Ciao meow for now!

What a handsome pair! Obviously, you got the drill about what to do in case the earth moves... stay safe, and have fun, you two! Purrr....

Hi Beeg,
It must have been scary for you and Kirby. We all race upstairs to one of the bedrooms when we are scared. Your Mummy and Daddy were clever to get a tree big enough to hold two. You both look great up there. There are 4 of us here who look like we could be Kirby's siblings. Mummy says...not a tabby amongst us.
Stay safe and Purrs,
Emma and Angel

Is that Kirby biting your leg in pic 2? I assume the reasons your positions are reversed in pic 3 are because you threw him off the tree after he bit you, moved over to the other side, and then allowed him to rejoin you on the side where you were originally. Love the look on your face in pic 1.
