Hello! An update...

Purrs friends! It has been ages since we have blogged and we wanted to update everyone on what we have been up to. Our humans quit their jobs (well, our non-blog Mom retired) and sold our little house by the sea. On February 1, 2016 we pulled up to our new home in Bloomington, Indiana. Indiana is where our blog Mom is from originally and Bloomington is the town where she went to college. It is a sweet town that is closer to our blog Mom's human family. It is also a place where both of our Moms can work less and play more because the cost of living is much more realistic than California. To make our move to Indiana, we rode in the car for FIVE days! We had a nice big soft-sided kennel that was seat belted in to the back seat of our Mom's car. We would ride for about six hours a day and then stay at motels (mostly La Quinta Inn) at night. We loved it! We slept all day when the car was moving and then at night we would explore exciting new sights and smells in the motel. It was great! Now we are living in a rental house in Bloomington until our Moms find a new place to buy. They have looked at a LOT of houses and they think they may have found "the one". Apparently buying a new human house requires a lot of paper work and inspections and negotiations and stuff. We are hoping to be in our new house by the end of July. Recently, Busby was not feeling great and so our Moms found a Vet here in Bloomington. The Vet did some tests and Busby ended up having surgery yesterday. The Vet found a mass in Busby's intestines. She gave our Mom's the option of sending Busby over the rainbow bridge, or removing the mass and letting Busby come home. My Mom's had a long talk with the Vet and long story short, BUSBY IS HOME!! He has some stitches on his belly where the Vet took out a bunch of his intestines. He has to stay in a big kennel that our Moms are calling "the recovery room" for a bit, so they can keep an eye on him and make sure he doesn't jump. The Vet said Busby may be around another 6 months or so, we are hoping it's more. We still hardly ever blog, but we will try to blog a bit more. xo, Raymond
