Geezer Cat Gets 2nd Chance and a New Career

At 14, it was unlikely he’d find a home. Enter Danielle Joy Whatley, the owner of the Second Edition Book Shop in Davie, Florida. An animal lover, she […]

Ask Max Monday: We’ll Take Toothy Death For $100, Alex…

Sound advice, as always, Max. What would kitties ever do without you? They’d have to Google a lot, which means they would get more fur stuck in the keys of the computer, which means people would be upset a lot more…I have to live to, like, 100 just to keep peace throughout 4,321,593 households. Max, […]

What Happens to Your Pets When You Move to Assisted Living?

My June sucked. An emergency situation occurred that required immediate removal of my mom from her home into assisted living. She’s 87, so it wasn’t a shock, but I wasn’t expecting to get a call from the police on Memorial Day telling me she was being taken to the hospital after being found wandering around confused […]

Ask Max Monday: Yes, We’ll Take That Card Back

Dear Max, Happy belated birfy day. Yesterday we were busy and couldn’t write to you because my sisfur had to go to the stabby lady house and they decided to keep her, well only until she’s better.

Got Poop? Win a Littervention! (GIVEAWAY) #spons

I’m lucky to have cats with excellent litter habits. But try as I might to train them otherwise, they seem to delight in bolting from the box like Olympic gymnasts landing their dismounts, hoping to win points for flair. And after Tripper digs for China, the laundry porch could be mistaken for a quarry. This results in […]

Kittehs! You Don’t Have to be 21 Years Old to Enjoy Vino!

Kittehs! You Don’t Have to be 21 Years Old to Enjoy Vino!

Kittehs are often disappointed that most don’t live to the legal drinking age of 21. No cosmos, no brewskis, no vino. If you’re an indoor cat, you can’t sneak off to a liquor store, hang around outside and wait for a geezer cat to show up so you can ask him to buy for you in exchange for […]

Time for Your Cat To Be a Loser #spons

At 12 years and 22 lbs, Tripp is a tubby tabby. And it doesn’t take a veterinarian or a PhD to help me figure that out. Over the years his swagger has morphed into a waddle. He boasts an impressive furchin*. I have to tend to his crusty butt hygiene because he can’t quite reach […]

Is This the Best Cat Video EVER?

While I’ve been offline having the worst week of my life, an elaborately produced cat video popped up on the interwebs–a commercial for a German discount grocery chain. (Well, I think that what its an ad for, based on my years of high school German.) Anyone who’s ever tried to get her cats to do […]

Don’t Tell Me I Can’t Consider My Cats as My Kids

A self-important mommy blogger just wrote the screed Saying Your Dog Is Your “Baby” Is an Insult to Moms Everywhere. Although her sentiments were directed at dog owners, I’m sure thinks no more kindly of cat owners. She describes how much more difficult it is to give birth vs. adopting a pet, how much more complicated […]

5 Reasons You’ll Fall in Love with Cat Hoop Art

Kids today! Probably wouldn’t know an embroidery hoop from a garter belt. But seeing one immediately transports me to 7th grade summer school, when one of our home ec projects was learning to embroider a flour-sack kitchen towel. My fingertips were pincushions as I mastered French knots and the lazy Daisy stitch. 90% of my lifetime […]

Ask Max Monday: You Been CHOOSED, Dood!

Thanks Max – that is helpful and I will add the “no” without using a pointy finger in hopes that he associates the word and me leaving with a behavior that means he doesn’t get attention. He’s not a big fan of high places, but can mostly be found in a medium height cat tree […]
