April – 2020

Our first full month of COVID-19. We mostly stayed at home trying to stay safe and not catch it. I brought home the plants from the office that I care for. The cats were quite interested in them.

It didn’t take long before I started being silly with my Zoom meetings.

I took several long motorcycle rides to keep sane.

And more cat madness. It is what the Internet is for! Brawndo looks so small here

Brawndo – 1/17/2020

We got a new cat and we named him Brawndo. If you’re wondering about the name, it came from my favorite movie, Idiocracy. Brawndo is a pure bred Maine Coon. We were picking him up from a breeder just west of Kansas City. We drove through an ice storm the night before to ensure that we could get him on time.

Enough of the car. We picked him up from Olga at EuroCoons. She was a bit more expensive than other breeders we talked to. When we go to her house, we could see how much she cared for the cats and were not disappointed by paying more for him.

And because the internet is all about cats and the post is about Brawndo, here are some photos of him!

So tiny!

Sonora is incredibly happy!

Corvin likes him too!

It didn’t take long for the two of them to become buddies.

Yep, he is adorable.

We have video of them playing.

Yes, I got Brawndo t-shirts for the family.
