Skipper Tripp shares a laugh as she rides along Winslow Way in Bainbridge Island’s Fourth of July parade.

A Bailey Manor resident, she just turned 101 on May 12, 2014, and was honored as the most senior person in the parade. Skipper has always loved the 4th of July and celebrating the birth of our country. She recently asked how old Uncle Sam was. When told he was born in 1812, she chuckled, realizing that Uncle Sam was only 101 years older than her, and she was catching up.

Even though she is deaf and blind, she wakes with a smile every day.

The Great Kitty Rescue!

Shiloh, the new resident kitty at Bailey Manor, was chased up a tree by a raccoon while on Kitty Patrol chasing leaves in the breeze.  Of course, being a cat, she thought she could come back down whenever she felt like it.  And also, of course, being a cat, Shiloh believes the world operates on her time schedule with her priorities being the most important.  It took Shiloh a little bit to realize that maybe this time she wasn’t exactly right and felt she’d be more comfortable on the ground.  So, KT Bigelow came to the rescue and got Shiloh safely down, promising a big fat bowl of Kitty Crunchies when she was back at sea level.

No harm done except to Shiloh’s pride.  And Bailey Manor came through on that promise.  There’s nothing like a satisfying dish of crunchy cat food after a Kitty Adventure!

Oh….Shiloh says to tell KT thanks next time anyone sees her.

Shiloh says she's not so sure she needs to be rescued!

Shiloh says she’s not so sure

Shiloh changes her mind about being rescued!

Ahhh!   It's good to be home again with my very own bowl of crunchies!
