The family went up to my brother and sister-in-law’s place in Maine for a few days this past week. There were 9 of us all together. We were lucky enough to have my nephews also come up for a few days. Now that the boys are getting older I don’t see them very often so it was nice to spend time with them. On Thursday we went for a hike around a pond. My brother Jack spotted a porcupine so I tracked it down. Not a great shot as it kept trying to hide from me but since I had never seen one before I’m happy I at least caught a piece of her. My brother Chris and my Mom both said it’s a myth that porcupine’s throw their quills. It’s a good thing it’s only a myth as I was not aware of it and was chasing this one down to get the shot.
Maya managed to survive her stay in the cat boarding hotel. Although, when I showed up she was hiding in her box. When I picked her up she was purring like crazy and couldn’t wait to leave the place. When she got home she seemed a bit confused and wandered around the apartment checking out each area. Yesterday, she still woke at 4am but she slept a lot during the day and stayed close to my side.
