This is the real day of return of Asta. We, of course, have been partying for sometime. Details can be seen in various blogs - Sassy, Scruffy, Opus and Roscoe, Karl to name but a few. Here we are, all waiting patiently at the entry of Asta's apartment building for her return....

More partying with the return of Asta. For the newcomers, here are the house rules as stipulated by Scruffy, Lacie and BabyStan
* Dogs, get along with the cats (and vice versa.) If you can't get along, remove yourself from the situation and go to another play station....we'll have board games, videos, bowling, a slip and slide, an indoor pool,an egg toss, mud play, paw painting, and too many other things to count.
*The cats will have a fishing contest...(no, the fish aren't alive...Butchy and Snickers wouldn't permit live fishing....) a mouse release game...all mice will be unharmed in this practice; (oh, and they will be numbered so we can find at least half of them when we leave)...lotsa real furniture scratchin' posts, a meatloaf contest...my idea!!!!...which cat most closely resembles a meatloaf wins a prize...and buckets of other things.
*No cat can mess with Girl Girl. Girl Girl may spend at least part of the pawty ridin' on Mango's back.
*Dogs will stay OUT of the kitty litter boxes. No exceptions made.
*There will be NO cooking of cats, Whippets. While your idea of Kitten CATchatorie is, um, clever, their idea of Whippetchini Alfredo is just asking for trouble.....keep the trash talk under your breath.
*Those wishing to play "How many animals can we stuff in Asta's elevator" may only do so if the elevator is less than half full of apartment residents.
*Dogs needing to go "OUT" are ask to NOT wait until the last minute as the elevator may be full with animals playin' the above HMACWSIAE game.
*All cats and dogs are asked to refrain from chasin' the Wheelies. It would just lead to Mayhem and Havoc. (The names of Mumsie's next dogs.)
*Any animals dog or kitties eating a raw food diet are asked to use a paper plate (if there are any left) if snackin' in Asta's parents bed. For that matter, all diners are asked to use a plate....there's nuthin' worse than sleepin' in a bed covered with crushed potato chips.
