Our Space Adventure

Recently when Sassy and I were on a beach vacation in Florida we responded to an ad for recruitment into the NASA program. We were accepted and put through a vigorous training program to undertake in important repairs to a space shuttle. We were not in the full astronaut training program but were enrolled in the accelerated program called NASA Space Camp

As you all saw from all our posts, the training was demanding but Sassy and I did our utmost and at the end we were qualified to go into space for our mission.

So here we were in the shuttle and in action, using what we learnt at Purdue University and at the NASA base to help the crew in their mission.

All went well and the mission was completed successfully.

Please go over to Sassy for her account of our adventure and our post-mission celebration aboard a luxury liner in Antarctica where a tea party is hosted by Karl and Ruis for Miss Peach 15th Birthday.

You all must agree this is a very fitting 100th post!

Photo credits to Sassy, Opus and Roscoe (who you all thought were running the bulls in Spain but were actually supporting us at Florida some of the time). Thanks also to Karl for taking our photo in Antarctica and lending us his signature sunglasses to protect our kitty eyes from the snow glare.

Hey, can we have your autograph! We think you two are bigger than Brad and Whatsername.

I am having a focus on Kaleidoscope at the moment so am just featuring it, also it's school holidays so two of my other sites are gathering moss/wool/mushrooms until the school year starts again. And the boys' websites... well, it's too hot.

We have three fans going in front of the TV. How are you coping?

Tigger the hot FBI cat said...

Why is your weather pixie SEVEN degrees cooler than our weather pixie when you are so much nearer the Equator than we are?? H'mmm?

... big decision here, who to sign in as.

Leslie said...

Hey! Did mine use to look like that?? I'm sure I had different hair on mine!

Did you change yours?

I think the space cats look incredibly cool!

Hi Momo, concatulations on your successful mission. Another Aussie in space, and a cat to boot - woo hoo!

Astronaut training - now that's some career - how does SS feel about your easy mastery of the accelerated astronaut training while she's still studying...

Maybe you should offer to help her out sometime - after all, compared to humans we cats are the superior species,

topcatrules said...

Oh I just had my first laugh of the morning. I lOVE the pink hat! It is precious!

Some nutcase when I posted it on the other Kaleidoscope got ALL defensive and crapped on about it last time I posted it. That's why I put in the B****y disclaimer. Er, I just think it's funny!

Hey, what number pixie has the three cats? I'm on number one at the moment.

topcatrules said...

Hey - I tried a new pixie, and she turned up with a woofie! So I went back to the old one.

Crikey, Pye is half the size of Miss Jumbo Paws. Weird how that pic looks. Although, she shrank incredibly after I went over her with the new Zoom Groom that just arrived in the mailbox from ebay.

I have NEVER seen so much floof come off a cat in my entire life! We had a floof mountain in a high stack on the floor.

Pye loved it, and rolled over and lifted a leg for me to do her tum.

topcatrules said...

OK, that reminds me, I have a half a bar of dark chocolate with that green mint filling, you know, the big block from Coles?

I'll just go get some, and some more ice tea and turn UP the fan!

topcatrules said...

Sing with me, "Zoom zoom zoom..."

Trixie's going to be half the size when we catch her and zoom groom her again. Mwah ha ha!!!

Hot! *wail*

Did we tell you we got a Drinkwell fountain? She wants to jump in it but it's too small for her.

topcatrules said...

Arrgh! Now she says 34, she's taken off her sundress and is wearing a petticoat and her sunglasses!

topcatrules said...

Oh we like the tuxie puss!

Hey, we just made you and Charlotte a picture!

It's a white fountain and is on sale for $99.95 and $9 postage from http://www.petdirect.com.au/default.php?osCsid=1783fb149be54e15a7d04f97437ac667

It's up on the kitchen counter at the moment. It was getting too much hair in it on the floor. Though with the new toy...

"Zoom, zoom zoom..."

TheGirls said...

Hi MoMo!!

Thanks for visiting! Well, I just asked Marilyn if she needs a new brother, because she was so happy about a new sister she got back then (NOT actually related, but very close friends). She was very positiv to let me be her brother. Then Mao Mao came by and said that this would make us to brothers, too.
Did you know that my male human is from Sydney?

Sassy Cat said...
