Tail and Toes on Tuesday

Hi friends! I thought you might want to see the tip 'o my tail and some toes on Tuesday. Nurse Raymond here. Mom went back to work today, but the doctor says she can only work four hours a day this week. She's eager to get back to work. Surgery costs a lot of green papers. Look how happy I am to be in a SUNNY spot! We have had 21 days of rain in March, and finally we are getting some sun. 

We know some of you have seen our little town, Capitola, CA, on the network news or the Weather Channel lately. Yep, flash flooding just three blocks down the hill from our house has wiped out some local residents and damaged many little shops in our tourist town. Mom took this photo of what is left of Pacific Cove Mobile Home Park on Sunday. 

We are safe here, and we appreciate everyone's concern. 

Now I have to go watch the clock to make SURE Mom doesn't work longer than she is supposed to today. 

xoxo, Raymond Festa, Private Duty Nurse


  1. We're glad you finally got some sun and that we finally got some rain!!

    You should nap and eat treats while Mom is at work so you can take good are of her when she is home.

  2. Wow, we do not have TV reception and did not know what happened in your town, or we would have been very concerned! I'm glad you are safe, and that you are being such a good nurse, Raymond!

  3. Raymond, we're so glad you're finally getting some sun! But poor Capitola!! It really took a beating! Good thing you're up on that hill!!

  4. OMC, the damage from the flash flooding is terrible. We're glad you're safe, but we're purring for all those who have been affected.

    Purrs for your mom too, for her recovery. Make sure she doesn't overdo it!

  8. Keep an eye and paw on your mom. We are purring for your neighbors - how scary!!

  11. Great job taking care of Mom and yes, make sure she doesn't over do it! I'm so glad y'all are safe, that is awful damage.

  12. Raymond
    YOU are doing fabulous at your nurse duties!

    We feel for those people who lost their homes.
    That is terrible.

    Bring on the sun.

  13. Those poor peepulz that lived in those little houses! I hope they and their kittehs are safe now.

    You're quite a charming nurse, Raymond. Perhaps not quite as vigilant as Busby though. You look a little too relaxed.


Give us a meow, or a purr or a headbutt. No hisses please!
