    The cats and dogs and other beasts
    All queue up for the trip.
    They walk upon the gangplank
    That takes them to the ship.
    The anchor’s weighed, the sails are set,
    The cargo is well-stowed,
    As Captain Steve casts off and gets
    The Show upon the Ro…

    Friday Creature

    I haven’t been taking very many photos at all lately, so I’m afraid until the weather gets warmer and less dreary, you’ll be seeing lots of creatures from the aquarium. This one is from my December visit, and I searched…

    Bloody Good Show

    Jill took me to the movies as a belated Christmas present as Christmas itself was marred by the car accident taking front and center. I hadn’t read that much about the movie, Sweeny Todd, beforehand so as not to spoil the plot but if spoilers are…

    Staying Out

    Cece. I’m getting better at this. He stayed out all yesterday. Cat food for my cats only. I am sooooo heartless, yes I am.

    One of my favorite Christmas presents each year is the Amazon dot com gift certificate that my brother sends me. I love few things as much as online shopping, especially when I don’t have to pay for it, so I…

    Save These Cats’ Jobs!

    If you think that only humans are suffering from the current economic woes, think again. Boo and Spike have been out of work for months. They are free- lancers, they get paid on commission. If no one asks for their assistance, they don’t have any colum…

    Photo Tip
    [Editor: When taking a picture of a cat, like young Property, it is generally a good idea not to let the wrist strap dangle where they can see it. Well, they can’t see much after the flash goes off, and they don’t hang…

    Overheard in the pasture: Dogs are weird. Why do they roll in our shit? Same reason humans spread it on their crops. It’s a valuable commodity. Moo. No wonder the markets tanked this week.

    Feline Friday: Golden glow

    As Seattle continues to have unseasonably sunny weather, the McKittens have enjoyed more than the usual quotient of sleeping in the sun. While sunshine provides Miss Lyra with a silver lining (a bit of which is visible at the top of this photo), it pa…

    Caturday Thursday Thirteen

    Since he’s always around here’s a few facts about Cece, some of which I learned only yesterday.
    1. He prefers being outside. Wonder if it has to do with all the dogs inside.
    2. However, he likes it inside my house just fine.
    3. He likes the…

    Pest Kitty

    Neighbor cat came over, I growled at him to no avail. He just ignored me. Not only that, he took my spot. The garden is infested. Soooo I took another shady spot under this bush. Far enough away from him that I don’t have to see him.
    There be s…

    Gloomy Day

    Woke up to gloom and doom. Let the kitties in, well Bazel anyway. No sign of the others. No sign of Cece. Maybe strike the doom part. Kitties inside got more cat food, less to share. Life is good.
    Now if only I could stay awake, so sleepy. Just want to…
