The guardians

Neelix is taking a break from guarding the hallway to our bedroom by checking out the newly blooming crocus (croci?) in the front yard


He also supervises my trips to the barn to make sure that I do the chores correctly.



But his favorite job is sleeping - and yes, he does look like a big upside down dustmop, doesn't he?





Sinda, on the other hand, has totally supervised the bedroom. She has barely left John's side and when she does, it's with complaint, and you surely shall know about it. Poor thing, she has such a hard life - ha, ha, ha...

But soon, their work shall be done - John is improving, seems by the hour - (he's presently planning a little work party for Saturday) - we'll keep you posted, won't we kids.

Aw, so cute. Rascal always used to help me with my bunny chores. He was so faithful, that he would rouse himself no matter how comfy or sleepy he was and would come out with me no matter what the weather. Of course, if the weather didn't suit him he'd simply sit in the carport and wait for me. But he came out when I did and in his mind that was good enough.

Great news about John.

Sinda is just holding down the bed for John, and Neelix must be trying to hold down the floor as well. :)

Tell John that Skittles was delighted to hear about the surgery and how well John's doing! He also said to tell John not to do too much...BUT if John can't get out to the barn to see the ewes, can he? I think he was winking at me when he said that. :)

Tell John not to over do it! Guard kitties are always the best. I have four guard weiners too. They are better door bells though.

Our Sinda look-alike would never be calm enough for a bed-mate. Oreo ricochets around, climbing things and playing with whatever moves. Our big furry alternate to Neelix (only Ozzie is grey instead of orange) would be more likely to; he's becoming a lap-cat whenever he gets the chance in his old age....

Isn't it amazing what trouble one tiny little piece of misplaced bone can cause? So glad it's gone, and John is feeling better!

Sweet Kittles! Best wishes and prayers for a speedy recovery.
