Epilogues: August 2019

Epilogues: August 2019

All together now: auhhhhhhhtummmmm.

It’s deeper than “ah.” It’s better than “om.” And we can see it shining in the not-too-distant distance.

If ever we needed the sepia-toned glow of fall, it’s now.

Out of the shadows and into the Community Room

As one who generally leaves summer kicking and screaming, hoisted high over someone’s shoulder into autumn as I shout “NO NO NO!”, I feel especially qualified to speak to the situation this year. It has been the muggiest of Madras-hot summers in central New Jersey, but that’s not exactly the issue. It’s also been a long, exhausting summer of people yelling at each other about Greenland and the GNP and Good Omens, but we know that’s not going away come autumn.

There’s just been a certain sort of weariness hanging out between the sweat beads this season. Even the cats, melted and magical, can feel it. And even they are about to join us in the great collective auhhhhhtummm.

But first, let us do diligence in reporting on the dog days of August:

Arrived: Ghost, Piku, Norman, Abbott, Forrest, Juice Box, Costello, Toast, Bojangles, Etta, James, Gobble, Oink, Moo, Neigh, Katie

Adopted: Arlo, Rascal, Kashi, Cholula, Kimmie, Bast, Nina, Peep, Aioli, Trent, Lemur

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene Joleeeeeeene, I’m beggin of you please don’t take my blog…

Returned: Tiger (pictured in top thumbnail)

Cleared from Quarantine: Loon, Mallard, Albatross, Cleat, Beam, Starboard, Janelle, Jefferson, Jocelyn, Jolene, Claire

Promoted to the Community Room: Shadow

Promoted to the Captain’s Deck: Inigo Montoya

Promoted to Heaven: Sherbet, Princess Bubblegum

Stuff We Learned: We must always be prepared for the arrival of a boujee kitten(TM). What, ask ye, is a boujee kitten? Exhibit A: Toast, the cutest crumb ever to reject any can of cat food that cost less than $3.69. See also: Fendi collars, Louis Vuitton carriers, Brazilian blowouts of one’s cottony peach fur. She sees it; she wants it; she gets it. And if she wants new photos with the bomb lighting? Her foster mom is forced to oblige. Don’t believe me? Just watch…

  1. August has left new kitties and strange animal noises at Tabby’s Place! Gobble, Oink, Moo, Neigh – hand me a Juice Box while I read on!
    Two precious souls – Princess Bubblegum and Sherbet – leaving us grieving behind as they moved to the Rainbow Bridge. Tabby’s Place has a glorious corner there – so many beloved wonderful kitties resting with Tabby himself! Thank you for this update – 11 wonderful adoptions.
