I'm sorry to hear your cat Anna's passed away.

She had a good run. None of our family's cats made it to nineteen years plus.
Thanks. It's definitely a bit lonely around the house these days. She certainly did have a good, long life, like you say. So we find some comfort in that.

Yes, hopefully remembering the good times you and she had together will help.

It does. But the house just felt quite empty, so we went and adopted a new kitty from the local Humane Society last night. Two-year-old beige tabby, does nothing half-speed, very affectionate. We're calling her Dorabella, which is a character from a Mozart opera but really just a cute cat name with various nickname possibilities. We are still sad, but she is already helping brighten up the place.

Yes! It seems amazing since she was actually a stray (and probably for quite a while). The shelter does feline personality typing, and she is very much a "leader of the band" type. So very adaptable. I'll have to email pictures sometime.

It does seem remarkable. Maggie, the stripey one of my current cats took months before she was relaxed around me.

I'd like to see pictures of your new overlord.

Sorry I haven't been here in a while. Had a busy month and an even busier week last week (personal on top of work). The worst of it should be over tomorrow, but I am on a work trip this week, so who knows how much I'll be able to post. I want to get caught up at some point, though!

No worries. I've been quite busy with work myself recently.

And then it happened again! Just as I was starting to get almost caught up here, too. Hopefully the rest of the summer is a bit more reasonable.

Yeah I've been piled with work recently too…

And now I've got a cat pawing me in the face demanding to be fed so I'd better either take a break or call it a day.

I'm going to see the new Godzilla film tomorrow after work and was planning on visiting someone, but if I can squeeze in the time I'll do a bit more catching up on Enworld.

I don't even want to discuss the past couple of weeks in terms of business. I will get somewhat caught up someday...

No worries. I have plenty of other amusements to distract myself with while you catch up.

Like going to the movies! Fortunately I wasn't disappointed with Godzilla: King of the Monsters. I reckon it's better than Legendary's first Godzilla (2014) but prefer their Kong: Skull Island, which has as good or better monster action and spectacle and the story and characters are more interesting.

Well, I've done a little catching up, but of course I have an important work deadline coming up in 2 weeks, and that's going to keep me rather occupied. So I may not be around much. OTOH, sometimes being busy at work gives me some short breaks to post since other stuff can't tear me away quite as easily. We'll see. Just a warning that I might be MIA until August.

I'm going on holiday in August from the 8th to the 14th which might help you catch up a bit.

Just a week? Perhaps. :p But I'm sure you'll be able to respond to anything I post in a day or so. ;)

Well I have stuff planned for the few days after I return so might not be catching up with the Creature Conversions for a while.

Well I'm back from my holiday.

Now I'm taking a few days holiday to recover from the holiday. It'll be at home though, so I can keep up with the CC forums if anything actually happens here!

At some point! Most of my time to catch up while you were on holiday was eaten by the forum software upgrade!

And now that I see all the threads in General Monster Talk with most recent posts going back to 2016 or so, it doesn't look like enough. I hope they haven't been lost!

Yup, this is right. I just saw that the Kraken Variants thread is in a D&D forum, not here in CC. But at least it exists! We are probably going to have to track down a lot and ask for them to be moved.

We don't need to dredge through our memories to figure out whether any threads have got misplaced. Since the last time Enworld lost them I've been saving copies of all active threads to my computer so I just need to go through my archive and figure out what's missing.

That said, we're still short a lot of threads from before the "Great Enworld Hiccup" that I haven't got archived. If we remember any of them we might as well add those to the "please restore these threads to General Monster Talk" list.

More importantly, we've lost Monster Homebrews, Homebrews Graveyard and the Creature Catalog itself!
