Breaking News!


We have a house! After a year of waiting, we have finally been assigned quarters on base! When we transferred here a year ago, we were told our wait for housing would be 6-8 months, but it has taken an entire year. While we were very grateful to have found this rental we're in (in a very challenging market), it's been hard not feeling completely settled, knowing there was another move to endure. Two moves in 12 months is definitely not ideal. We have been active duty for almost 20 years and have never had to wait for quarters. Anyway, we get the house 4 May, so the next six weeks will be busy busy.

More headlines from our house!

Marigold Learns to Use Windows

We have been working on window manners and she has finally figured out that what's outside is much more interesting than the blinds and curtains. Butterfly hasn't quite gotten this yet.

Butterfly Shows Off Her Fancy Eyes

Back in this post I tried to get some shots of the babies' dichroic eyes. This one is pretty good.

  1. Wonderful news- congratulations! I know the next 6 weeks will be very busy as you prepare for your move. Good luck with getting ready and I hope all goes smoothly. It will be lovely to be able to settle in to a more permanent home! Also l always love to see photos of your kitties. Take care.

  2. Yikes, another move?!? Well, you're a pro at this so I'm sure it will go smoothly. Love the kitten pictures. They're such beautiful babies!

  3. Bless your heart....the joy of getting a house on base....we won't even discuss the task of
    moving again.... put the kitties to work.....You are made of courageous stuff, Honey Bee.
    Hoping all goes smoothly and that you are ensconced in your new home without any hitches.

  4. Congratulations on the new home, I hope you stay for a long time.
    The eyes of Butterfly are so beautiful, I love that Marigold is so attentive at the window, do your babies do the quiet cry when they see birds? Blondie the Cat does it cracks me up.
    Have a wonderful weekend.


    1. They don't. They make all kinds of weird noises, but I haven't heard them fuss at birds.

  5. Congratulations on the new house, yikes about moving. I hope it goes smoothly. The babies will have a whole new house to explore, new smells from out side and they will love that.
