Doorman in Feline Misadventures

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 ...

Ope in Feline Misadventures

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 in Feline Misadventures

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...

Shunned in Feline Misadventures

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...


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 ...

Family relations in Feline Misadventures

Since the majority of the cats come from the same colony, I can be frequently heard saying things like “stop chasing your sister-niece!” And “aww you really love your uncle-brother, don’t you?”


I refer to my home as Medwyn’s Valley- a place where animals can find refuge when they need it. Cats, of course, mainly, but birds of all sizes (herons down to turkeys down to chickadees), deer, ...

Cat Lady 911 in Feline Misadventures

Yesterday was a rough day, I wasn’t sure if it was due to the flu shot I got the night before or the new medication I started the night before (second night has determined it’s the new med), but ...


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...


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 in Feline Misadventures

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...

Consequences in Feline Misadventures

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.


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...


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

A little prick in Feline Misadventures

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...

Caturday in Feline Misadventures

There are few things as peaceful as a Saturday spent in bed, watching the cats snooze in the fall sun.
