I'm the only one of the Gifts still in the house this afternoon. Lisa-mom took Boz and Ari away in a carrier this morning and so far, they haven't come back. I'm hoping they might still -- after all, the other night she took them and Makana away for awhile, but that time they all came home. But it's been all day and I haven't seen or heard anything. 

Last week lisa-mom and Ken-dad were gone all week. They took Regalo with them and he didn't come back. Lisa-mom says he's living in California with his new Mindy-mom and that he's happy. I hope he is and that he's not missing us too much. Galo really liked to play with Makana and Boz. 

Makana disappeared yesterday. In the morning when lisa-mom left for work (at least that's where she says she goes most days) she told me to tell Makana goodbye. Instead I jumped on top of the carrier and teased Makana that I was out and she wasn't. Now I wish I'd told her goodbye after all. She's supposedly living with her new mom and dad, too. They have two other cats -- I hope Makana isn't terrorizing them too much. She can be pretty rowdy. But I miss her. She sure knows how to play!

So today when lisa-mom put Boz and Diara in the carrier (I hate that thing!) I did tell them goodbye. I know they have a nice new mom and dad 'cause we've all met Carrie and Eric. But still... I didn't like them leaving. Now I have to play with Bria and Zeke and Lira. Oh, and I play with the little kids, even though they're not very good at playing. It's not the same as playing with my sisters and brothers. 

The only good thing I can think of is I don't have share my food or the squeaky mouse with them any more. I can play with the squeaky mouse all day and not have to worry someone else will take it away from me. Hmmm.... squeaky mouse, brothers and sisters... I think I'd take the brothers and sisters if lisa-mom would let me. But she didn't ask and now I'm all alone. 

Lisa-mom says I'll go to a new home soon, too. That's sorta scary. What if I don't like it? What if they're not nice? What if they have big mean cats like Maggie? What if they have a scary dog? Lisa-mom says she'll only send me to a nice place where I'll be loved and spoiled. She says all our new moms and dads will love each of us even more than she does (that's hard to believe!) and they will have even more time than she does to spend with us 'cause there won't be kittens and cat shows and all those other cats to take their time. Maybe she's right, but I'm still nervous. I like it here. And maybe I'm wrong, maybe Boz and Ari will be back later.

(Please note that you will see a number of photos of our cats and kittens that I've taken outside in a natural setting. The LostWoods cats do NOT go outside unsupervised! When we do go outside for pictures and occasional adventures, there is always one person and usually two watching them closely. We do have an outside, fully enclosed run to which the older cats are allowed access, but even then we check on them often.)
