Sad news. UPDATE: She is BACK BACK BACK!!!!
We fear that Salome escaped through our balcony tonight. Normally Momma don't let her go outside on the balcony on her own, 'CCause it isn't secured 100% for kitties not to escape. There was no need to, 'CCause neither of us boys would try to jump on the reeling anyways. But Salome jumps very high... Normally Momma closes the balcony door for the night before she goes to sleep. That's what he did this night too or at least that's what she thought she did. The door might not have closed properly and when we had a nasty storm outside the door was opened again and that's where we think she escaped... when the door banged shut again due to the nasty wind she might have gone scairt and jumped over the reeling. Momma and we checked all her hidey places inside we know of and can imagine ... she is nowhere to be found. Momma even went out into the storm to check if she could find her somewhere outside but there was no sign... and no Salome. There is a fenced in garden below our flat and balcony (we are on the first floor) and we hope that she is there somewhere hiding and didn't hurt herself too bad... The family who owns the garden is on vacation right now and so we don't know how to go there to check id Salome is there but maybe we'll find a way in the morning (it is almost 3 am here so we can't do much right now). We are very sad and worried and Momma is devasted.

Remembering Violette Noelle, our beloved "Sprout"
Why better than the lady rose, Love I this little flower? Because its fragrant leaves are those I loved in childhood's hour.
Though many a flower may win my praise, The Violet has my love; I did not pass my childish days In garden or in grove: My garden was the window seat, Upon whose edge was set A little vase, the fair, the sweet, It was the Violet.
It was my pleasure and my pride: How I did watch its growth! For health and bloom what plans I tried, And often injured both.
I placed it in the summer shower, I placed it in the sun; And ever, at the evening hour, My work seem'd half undone.
The broad leaves spread, the small buds grew; How slow they seem'd to be: At last there came a tinge of blue, 'Twas worth the world to me.
by Miss Landon The Lady's Book of Flowers and Poetry, 1842

The VET Report and one MAAAAD mancat!
Dear Lady who lives here and calls herself a momma! If you drag me outta my sleep and to that VET Lady person ONE MORE TIME and she steals one more of my tooofs I swear I'll bite your big fat booohinney wif tha remaining ones reeeel reeeeel hard! *pfffft* I am mad mad mad! I am a mancat I need my toofs ALL OF THEM for my mancatlyness!! Right now I am NOT yer hooocy booocy snoocy sweet boy! I haf to think hard if I ever want to be your sweet boy again!! There were lots of wooofies there and I was scairt and all! I mean the Vet Ladies were all nice and they saided I am a brave and stunning handsum mancat - but guess what? I ALREADY KNEW THIS! Thank you very much! And it ain't be nice to pull teefs outta a mouth that does not belong to you! Dear nice Vet Lady I would very much appreciate if pullded out teefs outta yer own mouth huh? how doya like this?!Momma Astrid here: We were at the Vet with Othello and the girl kitty last night (literally night 'CCause our VET opens at 7 PM and is there up to 3 AM in the mornings. Well we were back home at about 10:30 PM). I noticed that Othello had troubles eating again, so I scheduled an appointment to get the bad teeth out again and 'CCause the girl needed to be checked. Like the Meezers would say: The Othello toof report: The Vet said Othello's teeth didn't look as bad as last time. But there were two very bad ones so she pulled them out. Pooor Baby! She gave us antibiotics for him again to help heal the gingivitis he is fighting with. She also said we might not need to pull all of the teeth at once. She'd prefer us to come whenever we notice that another tooth is bothering him and pull this one in order to not have to sedate him.. The teeth in general are in not that bad shape so it is not necessary and if I do not want to risk the sedation it's ok. We have to call her in Friday to report how he is doing. He got some pain meds yesterday and with the antibiotics and the pulled teeth (sorry baby) he is doing much better. The She-Kitty report: The Vet says she is basically ok. She is older than we thought. About two years but a very small cat. We could not find a sign on her that she is already spayed. Also her belly felt a bit suspicious the Vet said she might be carrying kittens but it is too early to see it with ultrasound or anything so we just have to wait if her "big" belly is 'CCause she ate a lot the last few days or 'CCause of another reason. Otherwise she got the routine checkup and needs her shots the next time. As do the boys. in about a week or two we can try to let them together (when we know for sure that the little one is ok!) Well then I'll see what we will do with the little girl if no one claims her but to be honest I don't think anyone will! We were looking for "lost kitty" posters all around here and found not a single one... IF someone is looking for her we should have noticed a sign by now!
Victor Tabbycat asked if we do microchip kitties around here: Yes you can microchip your kitty here at most local VETs but the She-Kitty is not chipped :( Gandalf and Grayson mentioned that she might have traveled a longer way: Yes you are right, this might be a possibility - we won't finds out for sure 'CCause she won't tell... :/
Cats on Tuesday
Momma Astrid here: She is doing quite fine. Using the litterbox and eating half a can of tuna last night. She is playing and chirping, meowing and purring lots. Yesterday I asked around in the neighborhood a bit more but no one seems to miss her. :/ I really do not like the idea that her former family kicked her out... but it becomes more and more likely! It is summer time here and a lot of pets (cats, dogs and other critters) are abandoned when people are heading for their holidays...very few of them are brought to shelters... She is a sweet little girl and the most surprising thing is: Othello is very interested in her but is also very sweet and carefully approaching. Meowing a bit at her but not unfriendly!! She on the other hand seems to be scairt of the boys and is hissing whenever they come near the door! Kashim is interested too but not too much. That´s my big boy: way to laid back to be disturbed by another little kitty. I keep them separated tho at least until the VET saw her and says that she is ok and there is no danger for the boys! Only let them look at each other through the door... If no one claims her within the next week I will introduce her to our vet and then... well look for a good home for her? Something like that!

We would like you to go to her blog, "What Did You Eat", and select a recipe that meets your fancy, make the dish, take a few pictures and blog about Sher's wonderful food and share your memories of her with us. Then send an email to Breadchick Mary or Sara of I Like To Cook with your name, your blog's name, and a link to your "For Sher"? post. We'll get them to our fellow Babe, Glenna of A Fridge Full of Food, who wrote such a moving post about her best friend, and who will make sure that Sher's family will get a chance to see the feast of Sher's food all over the web.Momma already found my recipe and will post it on Sunday. Sher, we miss you!
