My grandparents certainly have had an interesting life and they are two of the most hilarious people I've ever met! I appreciate the time I've been able to spend with them and the things I've learned from them! My grandfather has suffered from numerous health problems such as heart attacks, strokes and other major medical issues and he is still kickin'! He to this day still drives his tractor daily, goes out every morning for coffee with some of his buddies and tends to his chickens! He quite a spry old man considering then amount of health problems he's had in his lifetime! My grandmother is a lovely southern belle and is one of the best cooks and gardeners I've ever met! Her flower gardens shame my poor little outside plants!!! She is a very kind and generous woman and I adore them both! So here's a late happy anniversary post to my dear grandparents!!! May my husband and I have a long healthy life together as you two have had!!!

This is the story about how we acquired such a dear feline! Around a year ago my dear cat Screamer who lived at my parents house suddenly died. He was quite a stealthy hunter and was constantly catching things at my parents house and my house (we live next door to my parents). This was a wonderful thing and ever since his death we have had an influx of rodents. They are quite pesky litter vermin! The mice have been building nests in the lawn mower and in my car. They have also been eating the hood liner out of Jon's car. The moles have destroyed parts of our yard and continue to reek havoc on our grass! We've tried almost every rodent repellent out there for mice including traps, poison, deterrents etc. However they evade them all! One of the glue traps on Jon's car had traces of a mouse stuck in it and he had chewed himself off of the trap. It was truly insane half of the trap was gone due to him chowing down on the trap! Needless to say we never successfully caught any mice! One day Jon stated "whenever your cat was still alive we never had this problem, we need a cat!" So hence the cat! We got her from my aunt and uncle who were looking to get rid of her! She is indoor at night and outdoor during the day! Posh has been quite a successful little huntress herself! In the past two weeks she has caught a mouse, a mole and a rather large lizard! The rodents can no longer drive us insane as our trustee cat Posh has come to the rescue! We really enjoy having her around as she is super sweet, mild mannered, puts up with the crazy dog and she hunts! It was really a win win situation for us and we are so glad to have her!!! If any of you all have a rodent problem I would consider getting a cat!
