aw,,, such sweet babies ! they look happy ! and you are all safe.. that is the best thing ! I chuckle that they think you are on vacation. LOL .they dont know what all the fuss is . I do pray your home is fine and once power is restored , you can get resettled . being upended is just so unnerving ! I live in NY . and IDA did plenty of havoc here as you know. I am a few hours from NYC , and we got plenty of rain/wind but were spared the worst of her wrath. No so for our poor neighbors a few miles south. Peanut is terrified of thunderstorms, so I can imagine the handful you have with pets escaping a hurricane ! Thanks for updates .. glad to hear so far so good ! Your in my thoughts and prayer ..hope power is on soon !! :heartshape:

I hope that you are in as good condition as all the pets. They look amazing and interested in the new surroundings, but comfortable and happy. The dog is so sweet looking, too. It is good news that your house is standing and I hope that you won't have too much of a big repair to do.

Originally I am from Astoria, Queens NY. I still have family there! Their neighbors basement flooded badly but thankfully they were okay! I can't believe the same storm that wrecked us in Louisiana reached all the way there. I'm glad you and yours are ok! I hope your neighbors will be okay.

I'm tired! That's for sure. With three dogs, I'm so sore from walking them. Two of them have never been walked before (we live in an area where people let their dogs roam wild... so I've never felt safe walking them out of fear of dog fights.) and have always been able to just go outside in our backyard. Every day it gets a little better though, thankfully.

aw, Thank you !! the situation with basements flooding in NYC is horrible ! I'm by Albany, so we made out OK here. the valley was spared for the most part. go 20 miles South or East, some friends got basements flooded , but we all made out alright all things considered. I had one friend whose daughter had to carry their senior dog out to car when house stared flooding .. poor thing was too scared / old to walk in it ! they went to stay with family. Once water receded , they were able to go back and clean up. they still made out ok. Their dog is a BIG dog .. lab ? and the girl carrying that huge dog out was cute , all things considered. the things we do for our fur babies !! I hope your family in NYC made out OK !! Be well !

Someday you can explain to the little boy with the grumpy face how lucky he was to have been your cat and to have ridden this out in a hotel.
Oh, he's been a TERROR these last few nights. I'm so glad we'll be going home tomorrow.

He spent last night pacing around, howling.

I offered dry food - nope
I offered water - nah
I gave treats - nu
I tried to nudge him to the bathroom - didn't have to go

FINALLY I said I'll just try giving him a can of the tiki we just bought and he gobbled it down and settled down right after. I just head desked. This cat acts like I STARVE him, lol

He ate a GOOD dinner!

They are too funny. After one of the big CA quakes years ago, my Daddy Cat jumped up on the kitchen counter at about 4:30 AM and looked at me like "since you're up, feed me."
I'm SO glad Mia and Milo aren't so food crazy. Jasper is a little, but not anywhere near as bad as Sammy. Jasper will do the whole 'let me love you so you feed me' routine - and knock things off the counter while maintaining eye contact. But Sammy? hahaha, he'll chew on plastic and paper to get your attention. I've had people tell me to get him checked for pica (i think that's the word?) but the vet says he's fine and just manipulative lol

Not sure if the video will go through or not as I've never linked one, but if it does - I wanted to share LOL Jasper just lets Milo roll him. They're going to miss the tub when we leave (they aren't allowed in the bathrooms at our house)

I love the constant face smacks like "What's wrong with you? Play with me. No? Ok, I'll just keep smacking you until you do."

Jasper LOVES to bonk. It's hilarious. He does it to Mia and she does the same thing Milo does, she LUNGES and rolls him around. It's adorable, because he's so much bigger than Mia and Milo both

EDIT: We ended up extending our stay until Thurs to avoid the tropical storm blowing through our area! so one more night then I can get these guys home to their very much missed cat trees.
