I got C! You can request one if you want to also lol

Something I hate: Cancer. It's horrible and kills so many people. I'm really surprised it's 2016 and we still haven't found the cure for it yet..

Something I love: Cats! They are adorable and amazing and funny. <3 A purring kitty is one of the best things ever lol

Somewhere I've been: Carcassonne, France, in 2006. It was beautiful and it was fun visiting the medieval city. I'd love to go back!

Somewhere I'd like to go: Canada, to see Banff and more glaciers lol

Someone I know: Caitlin, a friend from high school. It's so crazy to me she has a kid now lol

A film I like: Chicago. Some musicals I just don't like, but that one was very well done and I love the music from it (especially "Cell Block Tango")

We're storing Snowy in the freezer till the ground thaws enough to bury him, and it's really weirding me out and sad. It might be better if we couldn't seem him through the bag..*shivers* I don't like death :(

glacier_kitty: (electric guitar)
1. Do you consider yourself young, old or middle aged? Young

3. What were you really into when you were a kid? Trees, the states and memorizing all the capitals, swimming, etc
4. Who was your best friend in elementary school? Amanda, Katie, Meghan..
5. What do you bring with you everywhere you go? My backpack with my phone and stuff in it

Thanks for all your kind words about Snowy, it means a lot <3

Mom told me that Snowy died this morning. :( He wasn't doing well at all when I left on Sunday, and mom said he just got worse after I left. He had gotten super skinny and feeble and looked so uncomfortable, so I figured his time was almost up. This morning dad put Snowy on a footstool and he died peacefully (hopefully, dad said he wasn't groaning or anything) soon after. He was such a sweet kitty and I'm so happy we had a great 20 years together. I still remember getting him at a soccer game as a kid..he was so cute! I'm sad that he's gone, but it was for the best..it was hard seeing him so uncomfortable. :( He'll always have a special place in my heart <3

15. A habit you have that other people bug you over )

Snowy is 20 years old this year..wow. He probably won't last the whole year, so I wanted to get more pics with him. I'm sure he must feel achy, I hope he's not in too much pain though

Day #29: Your favorite theme park )
glacier_kitty: (night sky 5)
Today we drove to Phoenix (well Tempe, close enough haha)..since our flight back to Alaska leaves tomorrow, we thought it would be easier and less stressful to get to Phoenix a day early. We expected snow today too, but we didn't expect to wake up to a BLIZZARD. Luckily it kinda cleared up late in the morning, but it was still a little scary getting down the very steep driveway. When we got to Tempe we checked into the hotel and then went to the mall next door, Arizona Mills (like Grapevine Mills in Texas!). We ate at Rainforest Cafe and then went to the aquarium (a mall with an aquarium, that's a first!). It was a REALLY nice aquarium with lots of interesting animals and information. The sharks, manta rays and turtles were definitely some of the coolest animals (they rescued both their turtles..they had damage from boats on their shells, aww :(). That was a nice end to the trip..it's always sad to end a trip, but I miss Abby a lot and can't wait to hug her! It'll be nice to go back to work too lol

The other day mom and I went through some of the boxes in the garage and found TONS of pictures..we spent hours looking through them, and there's still lots more for next time. So weird seeing pics of myself so young..too bad I can't remember a lot of the events from the pics. I especially loved seeing pics of me and Snowy as a kitten!! Next time I should take a pic of one of them and post "now and then" pics. Lots of history in that box..

4. Your dream job )

Today's trivia: Window glass drops light speed to 120,000 miles per second
glacier_kitty: (kitties)
Yesterday evening I was just sitting online when I heard this noise like a loud car was going by the house..then I felt the shaking and realized it was an earthquake. It felt like it lasted at least 15 seconds..it rattled the pictures on the walls. It was a 5.07 43 miles north of here..one of the biggest I've felt! It amused me how everyone on Facebook was immediately like "EARTHQUAKE!!" haha. I hadn't felt one in awhile. During the night I felt two more, a 3.49 at 12:10 and a 4.19 at 4:25 (aftershocks maybe?). There have been other aftershocks not felt here though. Kinda scary, but exciting haha. I wonder if there will be any more aftershocks felt here..

and a cute pic of snowy! )
glacier_kitty: (pawprints on your heart)
1. Lightly touching her forehead against you
Called head bunting, this feline act of affection is delivered only to the A-listers in a cat's life. Your cat will face you, lower her head and lean forward so that the top of her head touches your forehead, face or other body part. This loving touch can often release feel-good hormones called endorphins in your cat and you.

Yes it does lol. Snowy especially likes to cuddle with his chin buried in your hair and your chin resting on the top of his head

2. Cheek rubbing you
Think of your cat as a feline graffiti artist. To make her turf really feel like home, she will rub her cheeks against the corners of furniture and, possibly, your legs or hands when you pet her. This act secretes oils from her facial glands. It's her way of claiming you as her own. Just be grateful that she does so by cheek rubbing, not spraying.

Abby claimed me the moment I met her lol. It's kinda gross when she's drooling though haha :P

3. Twitching the tip of her tail
The feline tail acts like a mood barometer. The tail puffs out when your cat is frightened or agitated. Conversely, your cat expresses love to you when she approaches you with her tail hoisted lazily up in the air and the very tip twitches. In cat speak, she is saying, "You rock my world!"

That amuses me haha. I don't think Abby can do it like other cats though since I think part of her tail is missing..

4. Holding eye contact and sharing a soft blink
Don't expect a cat to maintain a steady eye-to-eye stare with a new houseguest. Cats save eye contact for people they know and trust, like you. The bond is accented when she blinks softly at you. This is the equivalent of a kitty kiss. Respond by softly blinking back.

I love when she does that <3

5. Turning on the purr power
This steady, rhythmic sound emitted when your cat inhales and exhales is often associated with contentment. But cats also purr when they need to self-calm or while nursing a litter; however, your cat saves the special full-bodied rumble as a smile directed to you. It is her way of saying, "I love you."

Purring is one of the best sounds ever <3

6. Sitting on you or beside you
Cats crave warm places to nap and sleep, but when they bypass a comfy cat bed or your bedroom pillow to perch on your lap, you should feel honored. Your cat has sized up her options and is conveying that she prefers being with you rather than being by herself in her cat bed.

I definitely feel honored when she (or any cat) sits on my lap..I love the warm and cozy feeling!

7. Kneading his paws on your lap
If you need a sign it is time to trim your cat's nails, nothing is clearer than when he perches on your lap, purrs and starts kneading your thighs with her front paws. But this is also a sign of affection. Experts say that this action beckons your adult cat back to a safe, welcoming memory when she was nuzzling his mother for milk as a newborn kitten. He is being affectionate and a bit nostalgic.

One reason I like putting a blanket on my lap..though she'll knead on my arm anyway :P

8. Licking your hair and earlobes
OK, neither of these actions may rate on your top 10 list of affection preferences, but your cat is regarding you as another cat - albeit a big one - in her inner circle. Only special "cats" are deemed worthy of these special grooming sessions. In a multicat household, mutual grooming is a sign of trust and friendship. Pay attention to which cats, if any, in your home team up for mutual grooming. You may be the only one meriting such a gift!

Abby likes to lick my cheek the most..kinda gross after she's eaten haha

9. Bringing you dead mice, birds and other so-called gifts
Evolution and domestication have not stripped your cat of her inner hunter. After a successful hunt, she may deposit a mouse head or lizard tail in a place she knows you will visit - like your pillow. Yuck? Yes, but your cat is sharing her prey prize with you, a true sign of trusted friendship.

Yep, and she's VERY proud when she brings it to me haha

Yay, Abby loves me. :D (But I already knew that hehe)

3. lose half your hair or lose half your hearing? )
