Space Monkey Update

Grem August 2017

I was just thinking last night how I haven't posted any Space Monkey news for quite a while. The main reason is I haven't had a camera on my phone for ages. I've been doing all pics and videos on my Amazon Fire which is so old and slow now it's near useless. 
Everything has been good since our two sad losses earlier this year (Elsa
and that little baby I found on my steps ).
Liza is a crazy old lady now (they age so quickly out there). She doesn't hang with the group but, sure enough, knows when breakfast and dinner comes out of the magic door.
If she's late, I throw a little plate out there for her.
Then she goes off to whatever hermit hideout where she spends her day and night.
The 3 Amigos are all grown up and each has their own personality.

Grem July 2018

Grem is Grem (see video). I've decided to keep her outside 98% of the time. That's where she wants to be. She wants to hang with the gang. I think she's been instrumental in socializing the colony as well as it is.
I still bring her in for maelstroms and fireworks.
I'm not even going to try to throw a flea collar on her- plus they are dangerous for mostly outside cats (accidental hanging).
It's been a year since she was rescued, terrified and doomed, from that terrible steelyard with the sparks and HEAVY machinery and mud.
She's VERY friendly with me. She's like a regular house cat. I can pick her up whenever I want to and she'll tolerate a big smooch and everything, but she is still very wary of others and I'm glad since she's spending so much time out there
Friend of Earth Base Hazard Susan is sending some nontoxic topical flea and tick lotion (thanks!).
We'll see what happens then.
To stock up extra well for Autumn and Winter, I'm gonna bump up the target and ask past contributors, NOT to donate any more than you have (you've already been wonderful) but rather share the link again so we can get some new eyes and ears out there.
Later this month I will do my first big order from, as they are giving Amazon Prime a run for their money (and I fired Amazon Prime over a year ago). Walmart has some awesome prices on cat food and free delivery and all that stuff.
So there, how's that? ;)
