A Little of This; A Little of That

Things are slowly getting back to normal at the Bathurst home of Semper Fi Siberians. The new bathroom is finally done. I do have to admit now that it is definitely a good thing the start-up didn’t happen until we arrived home from Florida – there were way too many decisions that required our physical presence. For one thing, the entire project started out with a large oblong sink that was given to us and we asked for the bathroom to be designed around this sink. Guess what? In the end, the sink was just not right and we didn’t use it! Here is a photo of the shower area which my friend Diana designed. The contractor was not very happy with the amount of work that went into it but in the end he had to admit it is pretty fantastic.

Both Sophie’s and Nadeah’s kittens are still with us and the adoptive parents are anxiously awaiting the day they can bring them home. All the kittens have been given names by their new parents.


Katmandu, son of Sophie and Mr. Silver


Greta, daughter of Sophie and Mr. Silver


Maverick, son of Nadeah and Mr. Silver


Gracie, daughter of Sophie and Mr. Silver


Bo, son of Nadeah and Mr. Silver


Bronze, daughter of Sophie and Mr. Silver


Leo, son of Sophie and Mr. Silver


Mishka, son of Sophie and Mr. Silver

June will be a very busy month — just when these kittens are about ready to go home, we are expecting two more litters.  Our beautiful brown classic Tatiana is expecting her  first litter.  AND the infamous couple – Mr. Silver and Jackie – found a way to get together before we were ready.  We had them separated by a closed/barricaded door but those two found a way to overcome the obstacles. Jim has now installed a lock – a little like “locking the barn door after the horse is gone!”

Have you heard the news! Pass Go: The Cat Wins!  Hasbro announced it will retire the iron token  in the Monopoly game in favor of a new one – the cat.  Fans from 120 countries particpated in the vote.  The new token will be unveiled with the game later this year.  Cats Rule!

The following is an excellent video about what to never feed your cat:


With the end of May comes summer vacation.  Many people love to take their cats with them when they travel and we completely support this idea as long as there is some pre-planning.  The following is an informative article on this subject: http://traveltips.usatoday.com/travel-long-distances-cat-1606.html


I close off today wishing you a blessed Memorial Day.  May we all take time from the picnics and get-togethers to remember what this holiday is about.

And I’m proud to be an American,
where at least I know I’m free.
And I won’t forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me. -Lee Greenwood

    Beautiful kittens. It sounds like Mr. Silver is very busy, but may have the best job ever. Hope you are doing well.

    I love Maverick’s eyes!
