Squirt is the “Vampire Cat” tonight – and he didn’t even have to dress up! Seriously, I took this picture of him when he was gawking at a nearby lizard. But those big long teeth are great for Halloween…
Oh happy day! Squirt sent us to Lowes yesterday to check for his favorite leafy greens. We’ve been anxiously awaiting this day since we had our last pansies last spring. Lucky for Squirt, Lowes had them! So today our cats got their first pansy fix in months. Squirt likes to tear at the leaves and […]
I think I have finally perfected my technique for photographing Whiskey Loopy. He’s such a curious little guy, and whenever I get down on the floor with my camera to take his picture, I end up with a sweet pink nose investigating the lens hood. He just won’t sit still! But I found that if […]
It’s almost the first of October, which means that Squirt and Whiskey have just another month to wait until PANSIES!!! (These leafy greens are a feline favorite in our household.) Enjoy the cooler weather and the promise of things to come!
Today Rich and I must admit that we are sometimes guilty of shameless cat manipulation. Our cat Squirt has very long fur, which tends to tangle if we don’t occasionally brush him. Except he doesn’t like to be brushed. He scratches and claws and growls and bites. Rich got me leather gloves many years ago, […]
…a nice big pot of fresh cat grass! All three of our cats go nuts over this stuff. You can buy it in bulk and save a ton of money. Now we know what we’re getting Missy for Christmas! (ssh! don’t tell!) Squirt and Whiskey provided a review of our recent Amazon purchase. Mmm…good! Photo […]
It was one year ago today that we brought a tiny black-and-white kitten home. Whiskey Loopey has been such a joy in our house ever since! We now refer to Whiskey and Squirt as “Mischief and Mayhem.” I’m not sure which is “Mischief” and which is “Mayhem” – and it doesn’t really matter, because the […]
Our kitten Whiskey turns one year old today! It’s hard to believe how much he has grown… We love you, Whiskey!
We celebrated Squirt’s birthday this weekend – he is now eight years old! Carla came over and surprised him with a toy cat racetrack. You can assemble it in a bunch of different ways, then bat a ball around it. As is often the case in our house, our kitten Whiskey took over the toy […]
Rich and I enjoy making up silly words to songs about our cats. I’ve been meaning to post some to the blog for a while. This weekend’s rainy weather motivated me to actually do it, in honor of Whiskey’s nine-month birthday in a few days. (Our apologies to the original song writers…) Whiskey’s Song […]
Our oldest cat Goldilocks has been a little hesitant to welcome 9-month-old Whiskey Loopy into our family. Whiskey just doesn’t understand that all cats don’t want to play or be chased all day long! But she can be pretty sweet with him when he’s not threatening her Personal Bubble…
Rich took this picture of Whiskey over our Christmas break. Doesn’t he look comfortable? :) One of Whiskey’s many nicknames is “Squeaky”…check out this sound clip that Rich recorded while I was playing with him. :)
Whiskey is eagerly anticipating his first Christmas. Every year I cross-stitch a dated ornament for our tree, and this year’s featured the newest member of our family. Merry Christmas Eve!
On Thanksgiving Day, it’s important to pause and give thanks for the good things in life… Goldilocks gives thanks for her blue blanket for cushy cat-naps, for her bird-bird-birds in the yard, and of course, for the people who feed cats dinner at 1:30 in the afternoon. Squirt gives thanks for cuddle nap time, for […]
One more day and then nine wonderful days off!!!!!
It’s the most wonderful day of the year…for cats, that is. Rich and I took a trip to Pansies-R-Us and found the first of fall pansies!! Squirt’s favorite treat is a nice six-pack of pansies. He’s taught us to carefully select plants with lots of leafy greens. Today was Whiskey’s first experience with pansies, and […]
Our kitten Whiskey just keeps on growing! He’s getting heavier every day. Even Squirt has noticed the difference, and has started to be a little less gentle with Whiskey when they romp. (Well, what do you expect a boy to do when his little brother tackles him?)
It’s hard to believe that we’ve had Whiskey for almost three months now. He’s gotten so big! Dinner time is a real hoot — we start getting pleading meows from Squirt and squeaks from Whiskey in unison. One of the reasons we got Whiskey was to provide a young, energetic companion for our two older […]
There are all sorts of reports of migrant warblers across the state on Birdbrains this week. I’ve been watching the neighborhood for Bow Tie, our Yellow-Throated Warbler that comes to our yard each winter. I’m a little disappointed that I haven’t seen him yet. At Wild Birds Unlimited two weeks ago they told me that […]
I forgot to post a very important milestone about a week ago: Whiskey caught his first lizard! Our new kitten is a little over four months now. He’s just adorable. He loves to play with his big brother Squirt. Whiskey was featured on the Cats are My Love website not too long ago. On a […]
