First I want to say thank you to all you nice kitties for all your purrayers and purrs. They really helped! We were all so purry lucky! Irlene came ashore as a #1, not a #2 hurricane like the folks thought it might. We lost power for only 5 minutes - that doesn't even count! The basement is dry. Many leaves came down in our neighborhood, but no trees and not many branches. We were purry, purry lucky. The nooz peoples are all saying every one was lucky. Early this morning 540,000 peoples and kitties had no lectricity in Murlin, so we hope they get it back quickly! We hope everyone on the East Coast can say it wasn't as bad as they thought, or it could have been! Also, we hope they get their lectricity back quickly so they can feed their kitties!
