Biko update, SIGG water bottles.

Vogon saw Biko outside in the wee hours of the morning today. He reported that she looks fine, had probably just finished eating from the bowl of dry food I set outside the door, and was on the stairs when he saw her. She ran off when he called her name. Hopefully one of us will catch her in the next few days.

In consumerism news, I went to the SIGG website to buy a replacement mud cap for Laurel's water bottle and bought a new bottle in the next size up while I was at it. With a new bottle top and mud cap, I plan to pass her current bottle on to my nephew. I found a Hello Kitty design available two sizes up from her current bottle, but it was out of stock. So were both of the designs I'd like for myself, but I like SIGG bottles more for their durability than worries that my current Lexan water bottle is leaching chemicals into my water. I'll spring for a SIGG once my Lexan bottle bites it.

Well, it's good that Biko's been sighted. Keep us updated, please.

I'm glad you know she's okay, but I'm sorry she's not coming home. :(

The previous time Biko got out, she was out for two weeks. If we don't catch her on our own in the next few days, we'll put the food dish in a live trap and catch her that way.

Do you have any experience with SIGG v. Kleen Kanteen?

And, also glad to hear the positive Biko news. Yay kitty.

I like both, though I prefer the material and no baked-in lining of the Kleen Kanteen. Laurel has a SIGG bottle because my mom picked it up on sale. I like that it stands out enough that it won't be mistaken for another classmate's water bottle (it goes to school with her every day) but won't crack or leak in her backpack.

I am confident that we'll have Biko back inside within the next week or so.

Here's how one of my friends did it a few years ago for $2:

Whatcom Transit 105 from the school library to downtown Bellingham
Whatcom Transit 80X from Bellingham to Mt. Vernon
Island Transit 411W from Mt. Vernon to Oak Harbor
Island Transit 1 from Oak Harbor to Clinton
Ferry from Clinton to Mukilteo
Community Transit 113 from Mukilteo to Lynnwood
Sound Transit 511 from Lynnwood to Seattle

And then back to Bellingham for $2.50:

Sound Transit 510 to Everett Station
Community Transit 201 from Everett Station to Smokey Point
Community Transit 240 from Smokey Point to Stanwood
Island Transit 411C from Stanwood to Skagit Station
80X from Skagit Station to Bellingham
