Astro Kitties

Yesterday, we watched as STS-120 landed at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Captain Jack had been invited over to watch the landing with Miss Boo (aw look, Jack is blushing again!) and Dante had to tag along. When Captain Jack saw that there was water near the Space Center, he decided to teleyport himself and Miss Boo to the decks of the Black Furrball to get a closer view. Dante, being a bratty younger brother, tagged along. Here's the picture of all three of them aboard the Black Furrball.

You will notice that by the time this picture was taken, Captain Jack had drugged Dante with Nip so that Dante would eventually fall asleep and stop annoying him and Miss Boo. Poor Dante missed the whole landing!

As most of you guessed yesterday (Miss Boo - you were the first to guess correctly! *blush*), our parents are leaving us this weekend to go to New Orleans. They are going with our Aunt Susan and Uncle Dave (Uncle Dave is originally from New Orleans so they are staying with his sister there) and are leaving Friday night after they are done day hunting. They will be back Monday night but 4 days is still a long time to be without them. Thankfully, no one is being kenneled because our Uncle Mark is coming to stay with us! Uncle Mark is Mommy's brother and he is wonderful. He loves us kitties (and even the doggies) and we bet we will get tons of treats and pets from him. We have demanded lots of treats and presents be brought back for us since we are being left behind.

Look! Captain Jack got an honorable mention in Tara's Gotcha Day Picture Contest! Woohoo! Thanks Tara!

I can see you working hard. I must say it was a completely different view from the Bridge on the Enterprise.

Looks like a great time was had by all watching the landing. Well except for Dante :-p

I'm glad you won't be kenneled while your parents are gone. It's nice they have Uncle Mark to watch you in your home :-)

You were there at the landing! How nice! Enjoy Uncle Mark's stay and behave, boys!

Looks like you guys had a great time! Have a wonderful weekend with Uncle Mark. Our Uncle used to kitty sit us too, when we lived in Indy. Sigh.

Come back to Italy soon! We miss you guys!

ps. Our humans have been inside that very church. Did you know that there are mosaics inside, just like the ones right here in Ravenna!

We were talking about the church in St. Louis. Hope your humans have fun there; ours said that it is a nice city.

What a great photo, I'm sorry you missed the landing Dante, but you have to leave the love birds alone. Bendrix thinks you should always tag along!

The Black Furball was a great location to watch the landing on! You and Miss Boo are so cute Captain Jack!
