I’ve never given my cats as much latitude for the unrestricted outdoors before now. Mostly a product of having mostly semi-ferals, and a dash being the last house on a dead end road. Since I’ve ...

December 14, 2020


Last night, I was getting ready to get on our weekly family video chat so I was letting the last of the semi-ferals in. As soon as I shut my door, I got a text from my neighbor asking if I was ok...

Penelope Hartz

Penny, one of Wu Tang’s kittens, is on that border of feral/socialized. She lets me pet her when she’s in the house but outside has no idea who I am or why I’m near her. One of my favorite thing...

Since trying to save their dumb lives, and keep them sheltered in a snow storm, the Pekins have refused to come to my yard. They’re happily traveling the neighborhood still, while avoiding my yar...

Magical Mystical Mr. Diamond

There’s all the jokes about cats being liquid or just plain defying the laws of physics, and then there is Diamond. He is a tiny little runt I picked up at Kroger with his littermates. I had no ...

My favorite thing

Everything my cats do that make my heart swell like the Grinch’s is my favorite thing. My current favorite thing is OC on my lap, climbing my shoulder to headbutt my face. OC (named by my grandmo...

12 down, 12 to go

David had his last injection today. He enters the observation period tomorrow and has to make it till February 18th without a relapse or we have to start treatment over from the beginning. His bl...

Survivors Guilt

David coming to the end of his treatment is extremely bittersweet. I am beyond thrilled that my little marshmallow cat has survived 12 weeks of treatments for a terminal illness. I have known him...

Inevitably I stay too long and am stuck with the conundrum of displacing the pile of cats sitting on my bladder in order to void said bladder without them getting upset.

Sunday morning biscuits

What highly motivated people who don’t crawl back into bed once their morning chores are done miss out on is the sleepy, post breakfast biscuits Boudicca has to make on my stomach before she hers...

You’ve been warned

Once I figure out how to add photos it’s all over for you heauxs.

A little prick

Waiting for David to calm down before my third attempt to give him his injection today. As clever as they are, there is no reasoning with a cat, especially when you’re trying to convince them tha...
