Hi efurrybody! Padre here.

Sorry that we haven’t been blogging for a few days. We did not have access to a computer because we were AWAY FROM HOME. The Furry Bambinos are back home now at Casa Cabán, safe and sound. We are very very very happy to be home. This is where we were:

On Wednesday afternoon, Mommy scooped us up and shoved us into the evil cat carriers. Immediately, I voiced my protest, but to no avail. Daddy and Mommy put us into the room that moves and we drove away.

At first, I didn’t know what was going on, and I was afraid that Mommy and Daddy decided to give us back to PAWS, the rescue group that they adopted us from.  I was extremely upset, because I really love this furrever home, and I really love Mommy and Daddy. I was afraid that we did something bad, so they were giving us away.  🙁

But we did not go back to PAWS. Instead we went to The Barkley Pet Hotel and Day SpaTM.

Panda Bear and I complained the whole way there. Meerkat kept quiet, but she was quivering the entire time.

Once at The Barkley, they showed us to our “suite”.  At least the three of us got to stay together in the same unit.

Apparently Mommy and Daddy were going out of town for a few days. Winter weather is unpredictable here in Northeast Ohio. So they did not want to ask a friend (like Miss Deb who visited us before) to try to navigate our driveway in bad weather. Dad kept saying things about “beaching the car in deep snow at the end of the driveway.” Whatever that means.

They let us explore the “Kitty City” at The Barkley. There was a climbing tower thingy, and Meerkat climbed all the way to the top!

There were also some trees in the corner, so Meerkat checked those out, too.

Panda Bear got hissed at by a kitty named Daisy who was staying in another condo unit. He was not miffed in the least, and looked at her as if to say “What’s with you?” Panda Bear also inspected this thing called a “step stool”.

I preferred to hide out in the lowest level of our condo unit, which is where the litter boxes were.

Mommy was very sad and gave us lots of hugs and kisses. Daddy gave us hugs too. Then they left!!! At least the humans who run The Barkley were nice, and checked on us while Mommy and Daddy were away. The Barkley humans fed us and gave us fresh water and emptied the litter pans.

While we were there, we found out The Barkley is mostly for woofies to spend the day or night, and that Kitty City is a special area just for us cats.  We heard through the grapevine of other kitties and snippets of talk from the humans that there is a pool, and a fountain, and massages, and accupuncture, and even  limousine rides for woofies!  Despite this imbalance of care for woofies, I consulted with Panda Bear and Meerkat and we give The Barkley a “4 paw” rating for cats!

Finally Mommy and Daddy came back on Saturday afternoon and rescued us from The Barkley. While it was a nice place to visit, all of us Furry Bambinos are so glad to be home!!

The Barkley did not have a computer for us to use, so we have a lot of catching up to do reading and commenting on blogs…
