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
It's been a while since I updated on the status of Little Braveheart, aka Tissue, now that she has been brought indoors. For the first while, she hid out in the basement. She began to emerge more often when the cats were given their evening treat of wet cat food. My daughters would, whenever possible, … Continue reading A little Tissue
Just a collection of pictures I took today. The inside orange babies watching an outside orange baby! This little buggers snuck into the sun room behind my back and got closed up in it! It wasn't until I came out to give the cats some treats that I heard her plaintive meowing. She had jumped … Continue reading Things I saw today
The indoor cats were adorable today, too! Keith and "grandma" - the mama cat that moved out here with us - cuddling together for a nap. Keith, again, dropping back to sleep, even as he reached out to grab my phone while I took the picture! Our old mama cat is turning out to be … Continue reading Inside kitties, and a bit of a problem
Beep Beep seems to enjoy her retirement to indoor life. This is how I found her this morning. She just loves this corner of the couch, so my husband has been making nests for her. Because we're not sucks when it comes to the cats. Not at all! /sarcasm... The kittens were out and about … Continue reading Morning kitties!
