I was checking out how the cats tuck under the kibble house, where they hide and watch while I do the outside errands. It's completely clear of snow, but the ground is quite frozen, of course. After seeing how the cats were doing the cold toes dance yesterday, I decided to go see if I … Continue reading Critter(s) of the Day: toe warmer
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 hairy bean, also known as Dave, has settled into our home quite solidly. Safely indoors, with a full belly and cleared up eyes, and humans that let him sleep pretty much anywhere he wants. Life is good as an indoor cat!
