Quake Shakes

Oh man our country is rocking around tonight. We are fine, just a bit jittery.   This is the Biggest shake mum has ever felt, and luckily there was a bit of a rumble first.  I was sitting next to her and she got us to the door to shelter under the doorway.  It almost moved her off her feet.  Just a few non breakable things fell off shelves, but mum is good and doesn't have much that is unsecured.

We have had shakes following every few minutes and mum does not think she will get much sleep tonight.

The epicentre was near Christchurch where there were big quakes a few years ago, so we hope everyone is ok there.

Thanks for thinking of us.

  1. Poppy, dear, it's good you and mum were together when the quake shook your home. Perhaps you should stay safe inside for a day or two, so mum doesn't have to look for you under a bush if it happens again?

  2. Sending purrs to all affected by this quake.
    Our news said it was big(7.8) with lots of after shocks!
    We will keep you in our thoughts.
    Purrs Georgia and Julie,
    Treasure and JJ

  9. I am very relieved to see this post and know that you are safe. Thinking of you and all those affected. Flynn sends purrs for you both to stay safe.

  11. Wow!
    We live in So Cal and have felt our share of shakers. But 7.8! So glad to hear you are okay. Praying for you both. On a happy note, we have a new kitty and she loves seeing your picture, just like Rusty did.

  12. When I spotted a NZ earthquake in the news, I immediately thought of you two. We're happy to know you are still standing!

  13. Just yuck yuck yuck and I'm not even in the South Island. Hope you got a bit of sleep xxx

  14. SO glad you checked in and are okay! My human and I woke up to this news a little while ago and we hunted down the friends we have in NZ on Facebook and blogs to make sure they were all right. Everyone is shaken up, but nobody we know is hurt.

  15. I heard about the earthquake on the radio and came over to see if you were in trouble. I'm pleased to read you and your mum are all right. I've heard of two fatalies, dammit. Let us know how things are going when you can.

  16. Oh dear, Dad told us about this and Mom, Lucky and I are really glad you are okay. I don't think I would like the shakes.

    Keep safe.
