I made it into the city today, to attempt our monthly shop. I am definitely running low on batteries right now. I hate shopping at the best of times. These days are not the best of times. But before I explain that, let's have some cuteness! How about some hugging kitties? The cats have a … Continue reading Low battery
My goodness, I can hardly believe it's just barely afternoon as I write this. Sunday is supposed to be a day of rest, isn't it?? Things started off pretty routine. I did my rounds and the outside cats were very happy to see me. Well. Happy to see fresh kibble and water! Potato Beetle joined … Continue reading No rest for the wicked!
Before I catch up on things, I just had to share this photo. This is Little Braveheart, now known as Tissue, cuddling with "grandma". That is the protective foam insert that came with the new washing machine. Our old mama cat has claimed it as her favorite bed, but she doesn't mind a kitten joining … Continue reading Catching up
After removing it from storage, David promptly claimed our tree skirt for a bed. I disturbed his nap. 😀
Every year, before we are ready to decorate our artificial Christmas tree, we dig it out of storage and set it up. The idea is to get the cats used to it being there, and we get a chance to remind the older cats, and train the newer cats, that this is NOT a thing … Continue reading Foiled?
High winds are sweeping across the prairies right now! There has been snow, now and again, as well. As I write this, I can see the live feed on our security camera, which has switched to its night setting. That means the snowflakes are being lit by the infrared flash, looking like white lights. I … Continue reading A blustery day!
The good news: more progress on Cabbages' socialization! She has been going around us more often, and the other cats are tolerating her more. Those that don't, she typically just ignores. It's rather funny when Fenrir hisses and growls at her, and Cabbages just looks at her with this "gives no f***s" expression! The bad … Continue reading Cabbages’ Patch
The cuteness! It's overwhelming! 😀 Cabbage let me pick her up and cuddle her for a while. When I put her down on my bed, she let me snuggle her some more. Then Grandma came over and started grooming her. Before I knew it, she was snuggled in with Cheddar, who took over the grooming, … Continue reading Accepted
The little calico has been settling in surprisingly well since I abducted her from outside. She has been quicker to explore and be around the other cats than Tissue did. Fenrir doesn't take to the new additions well in general and, of all the cats, Turmeric has been the most aggressive towards her. For the … Continue reading Settling in
I had a very enthusiastic crowd when I gave the outside cats warm water and kibble. 🙂 The one potential down side of the kibble house I'm building is that there will not be as much room for the cats themselves to spread out. The very shy one in the back, for example, is not … Continue reading I am such a suck
