First of Fall Pansies!

Posted 2 CommentsPosted in Cats

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 […]

Feline Manipulation

Posted Posted in Cats

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, […]

Happiness is…

…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 […]

One Year Ago

Posted Posted in Cats

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 […]

Silly Cat Tunes

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 […]

Nose to Nose

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…

We Give Thanks

Posted Posted in Cats

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 […]

First of Fall Pansies!

Posted Posted in Cats

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 […]
