Watch out for falling trees!

Have you seen Mickey's Thursday Thirteen? It is so cool! It features 13 expressive cat faces (of course I'm honored to be included) and you have to see it!

I won the Calico Girl's Gotcha Day gift!! I'm so excited I've even woken up from my nap!

We live in a very lovely town that has a huge old canopy. It is very charming and the sycamores really create a lovely ambiance. This is our main street on the 4th of July when we have a big parade.



The Awesome Man and the Woman were driving home from the barn last night when they heard a strange crackling noise. Suddenly there was a huge CRASH!!!!!!!! A large branch came from the sky and landed in front of the car and bounced up while the wussy Woman covered her eyes (like that was going to do any good). Luckily the AM was driving. They drove home, which was a block away. The Woman called the cops and they showed up at the house 5 minutes later. They couldn't find the big branch so the AM had to drive up there and help them remove the pieces.

Luckily no one was hurt but it could have killed a pedestrian and certainly any cats who would have been outside! The car is wounded and they are trying to figure out if its the homeowner, the Boro, or the County who is in charge of the tree. The policeman said they will have to get back to us. Luckily it is driveable, just scratched up and its ear hanging.

Senor has a tree in his side yard that The Lady hates. She said that it is gonna fall right on the house any day now! I hope he cuts it down before I have to move in next year.

Wow, during our windstorm when many people lost trees and cars were damaged, we were told that it was an "act of God" and therefore the car insurance paid (comprehensive). The only exception was if the owner of the property the tree was on was aware that the tree was in bad shape and needed to come down. I don't know if all states are the same.

We just has to have three big trees come down in our yard last week!

Wow! I am glad that no one was injured (well except for the poor car).

Your town looks like a nice one! While I have teleported over a time or two, I haven't seen much of your town. Meowm and I may have to come visit sometime!

No cats would have been hurt. We would have sensed that it was going to break and get the heck out of the way!

Congratulations on your TT13 face selection. Great choice. I'm not the only one who recognizes a handsome man cat when I see one.

So glad that your people escaped unscathed! Our Mom LOVES trees, but Mother Nature can do fierce things with them. (And we don't think you can hold anyone responsible unless the tree was a recognizable hazard.)

Purrs from your charmer,
