Shakey Quakey


No - that isn't the mumsters wine closet.  These pictures are from the Dominion Post, our local paper and are of the effects of the quake in rural Seddon where it was centred.  In our city there seems to have been no injuries and minimal damage around the city.

 Mum had to work, but when she got home I wanted to cuddle up with her and snuggled with her most of the night.  She was on'-call, so she took a nap with her today, sleeping right next to her again.  We got asked if I noticed the earthquakes.  The last big one a month ago, I took off out the catdoor and hid under the deck as soon as it started, but now I stay closer to mum.  There have been so many, that we hardly notice now.

Thanks for all our kind friends for commenting or emailing to check on us.  We have a good support network of friends and family who rang and texted as well to check.  We love you all.

Enjoy your weekend.

  3. Not fun aye - poor old Cinders is petrified. I kept all the cats in the cattery last night - none got to sleep in the house as safer knowing where they all are.
    I did wonder if you were at work.

    Love Leanne

  4. I am so glad you made it through the earthquake unscathed! We don't notice the smaller ones here either, but this one sounds like a doozy!

    The cat before me was usually fearless, but if she was inside during an earthquake, she would immediately dive under the bed!
