Wampi Loves Drawers Too
Hi everyone,
Well looks like Wampi is really exploring the whole apartment and he is determined tot take a nap in every nook and corner. =)

Now that he likes to sleep in this plastic "junk" drawer, my husband doesn't have the heart to close it all the way. He leavs it cracked just in case Wampi wants to crawl in and take a snooze. And funny, but just a little crack is all he needs to put his paw in, pull as hard as he can and pull the drawer out, then he crawls in to take a nap.

I know I'm biased, but he's so cute when he's all cuddled up!

note: you can see his reflection in the plastic!

He's soooooo used to me taking pictures ... he's not even fazed.

Happy kitty.

Wampi looks like he's smiling!

Taking a Break from Mouse Patrol
Wampi is really adapting to the new place. Here you can see he is hard at work! lol.

Wampi likes to curl up in a ball on our couch. He still can't jump up there yet, but he gets up there all by himself now by "climbing up" with his front claws.

Cute position #1.

Cute position #2.

Reaching up toward the camera.


I think he got tired of the photo session!

Wampi, the Mighty Mouser

Here's one of the mice Wampi caught! Can you believe it? I love all types of animals but face it, it' not healthy to live with rodents and this building has got a serious -- SERIOUS -- mouse problem. I am all for Wampi catching mice ... gets him exercise and makes him feel useful and at the same time we get rid of the mice without using any type of traps or pesticides. Earlier today an exterminator hired by the building manager came by and asked if we needed our apartment baited for mice (lots of people have been complaining) and we were able to say, nope, we got our own in-residence exterminator! Wampi is a super mouser!

He caught 3 mice total and I haven't seen or heard any in awhile. He patrols the apartment and except for a little limp he has now from the "accident", you'd never guess he was near death early this summer. Go Wamp!

Why Do Cats Love Small Boxes?

It is such a mystery to me! Well, as you can see Wampi is doing great and is finding lots of "comfy" places in the new apartment. And yes, I have found my USB cable! Wahoo! I have tons of pics and things to write but it is so late and I need sleep. I had to put this up though, I couldn't wait until tomorrow to let everyone know.

Tomorrow more pics!

Where, oh where is my USB cable?
I miss posting pictures of Wampi!

He's so adorable and curious all the time ... I love taking pics of him but now I want to share them with everyone and I seriously can't find the USB cable. I found a few other USB cables but they don't work with the camera which is a pretty old one but still works great. OK, hopefully it will turn up soon.

Wampi ate a bunch of catnip and is snoozing in the bottom drawer of my husband's desk. Super duper cute. He is really happy.

Still no more mice in the apartment. I think they all packed their bags and left. =)

Wampi the cuddlemeister
Yep, he's such a sweety. No more mice lately but every chance he gets he curls up in my lap and purrs. I think he approves of the move. Still no USB cable! But we are down to less than a dozen boxes and my husband says he saw the cable recently so I'm hopeful that tomorrow will be the day that I get pics back here.

Thanks everyone for sticking around through my lean posting times. Ya'll are so awesome.

My B-day =)
Hey everyone,

My life is settling down now. My family is ok and their houses escaped Hurricane Rita even though some were caught in a nightmare 24-hour evacuation on I-45 (they have some real horror stories of people who ran out of gas and just wandered lost on the road, not to mention gangs roaming the highways...freaky). My dad didn't have to evacuate since he lives south of Houston and it didn't go that way anyway.

Today is my b-day! I didn't do much today except relax and play with the baby. Rich cooked dinner tonight. Yummy. Wampi seemed to know and curled up in my lap a lot today. His birthday was a few weeks ago and we celebrated with catnip and kitty toys even though that was only a few days after our move and we didn't have electricity. He seems to love the new apartment and has been earning his keep by catching mice! He's caught 3 to date and I haven't seen any more at all ... I think he scared them all away. Good kitty.

I'm sorry (again) for not posting regularly lately ... it's just been a really hard month. A lot of people have said to me "how do you do all that you do?" and the answer is, lately I haven't been able to do it all. I just couldn't keep up with everything and that's why my posting lagged off. Moving is hard and harder yet when you have a family and the apartment isn't ready! Geez. At least it is all coming together now and I can really start to appreciate our move. I love the new apartment and our new neighborhood is nice too. Very residential. Where we lived before was full of businesses and bars ... 24-hour bodegas on the corner and now we live in this very residential Brooklyn neighborhood. I like the change. =)

For all of you who have missed Wampi's pictures, I just wanna say that I have taken tons of photos lately but I can't find my USB cable to upload them! I looked all day yesterday (while unpacking boxes and cleaning) and today I just kind of took a break from unpacking. I still have to unpack the boxes for my desk and I'm sure it's in there but unpacking takes so long! And Wampi likes to help ... well, he likes to get inside every box I unpack and sniff at everything. LOL. He's such a cutey! He has been such a sweetheart lately. I think it's because he has some room to move around, places to hide, mice to catch. I can't wait to post a pic of him with his prize from the other day. I got a pic of him after one of his mouse hunts!

Well, that's all for now folks. I think I'm now back to blogging. It feels good to write again and share all this. I'll be back again tomorrow ... hopefully with some new photos!
