Introducing.....the "mewest" Hab fan


I'm not quite sure if she is a Hab fan, she slept her way through the Habs/Pens playoff game six last night on the NHL network.  I want to get her acclimatized to my yelling and screeching before hockey season begins.

She's a two year old seal point Siamese that came to me through a rescue group called "Cause 4 Paws."  It all started when I placed an ad on Craig's list last February, I was giving away a sofa and love seat and the lady who ended up taking the furniture runs a cat rescue.  I already have three fur kids and believe me, I wasn't looking for a fourth.  I do however have a weakness for Siamese, they're a wonderful breed and they get deeply attached to their humans. 

On Friday I met with the cat lady to finalize Sabrina's adoption when I mentioned that my favorite Siamese is the blue point.  You gotta love this, she says "well then you'll just  have to adopt Josh Gorges."  Are you kidding me?  Josh Gorges? Check out these pics of Habs' kittens, the family that is fostering them are die hard Habs fans. Ursula (the cat lady) had no idea that I'm into hockey!  I think it's fate :)  Mr. Moey will have me committed!

Isn't Josh gorgeous?  He has some medical issues at the moment, he's not eating and thriving the way he should be :(



There is also a fourth kitten "Marky" but I didn't see his picture on the website.  These kittens are available for adoption, you can find out more about Cause 4 Paws by clicking the link below.  They appreciate any help you can give, whether it be adopting, fostering, or donations for never ending vet bills.  Do it for Josh!

On location, training camp 2008.......Moey style

As I have stated many times before, I'm your less than typical hockey fan.  I don't obsess over the Habs, own any Habs jerseys and it would take a herd of wild horses to drag me to the Bell Center to watch a game.  I've even been known to give away tickets that I've received.  I don't attend Tweet-ups or Summits, my favorite venue is my sofa in the family room.

However, a couple of years ago, the Habs held their training camp 15 minutes from my house and I figured I could manage that, even though it meant getting up early on a Saturday morning to get a decent parking spot. The personal sacrifices I make for this team are mind blowing.  I had forgotten about a couple of pics that I had managed to snap outside and just came across them this week.  I didn't take any indoors because it was too cold in the rink and in typical Moey fashion I was wearing heels with no socks.  I watched the on ice training exercises through the glass, with a coffee in hand. 

The blond guy looks awfully familiar, but I can't for the life of me remember who it is.

Joisey shores update.......

I had lofty ambitions about posting every other day while enjoying a quick beach getaway.  Unfortunately on the Tuesday I came down with a rotten cold, so there's not a lot of blogging material and quite honestly I didn't have the energy nor the inspiration.

The weather was great for the entire eight days.  Very hot and humid, but there was a lovely breeze during the day to make it very tolerable to sit back and catch some rays.  The ocean was nippy but nice if you just wanted a quick dip to cool off. 

Mr. Moey did an admirable job of being a single parent while I was away keeping the furkids fed and becoming an expert poop scooper. One thing I failed to mention before I left is that it's not necessary to dump the entire 12 kilos of kitty litter into the tray at one time.  The smaller furkids looked like they were drowning in quicksand when they attempted to do their business.  It's probably a good thing the clumping doesn't  work instantaneously or they would have been anchored to the bottom with little cement shoes around their paws.  But all in all I can't complain, they were happy and healthy and the head count remained the same.

So the countdown begins until the next beach vacation, Grand Cayman in October.  With the weather we've been having so far this summer, it can't come soon enough.
