Time for Your Cat To Be a Loser #spons

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

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

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 […]

Topiary Cats Capture Imaginations of Millions

Topiary Cats Capture Imaginations of Millions

I’ve never been a particular fan of topiaries–I’m more of a wild child gardener–but these cat topiaries could change my mind. One day a “surrealist” artist from Stapleford, Hertfordshire, UK  Richard Saunders, spied an ornamental shrub that resembled the shape of his beloved pet cat while asleep. His ongoing cat topiary project, in which he creates images […]

Pennsylvanians Want to Know: Do Cats Fart?

Pennsylvanians Want to Know: Do Cats Fart?

Did someone get paid to do this research? A recent analysis of Google queries revealed what search words and phrases were used the most in which states. This wasn’t to determine the top search terms in each state, but rather which state searched for certain whimsical search terms the most. Interesting, Pennsylvanians searched for “Do Cats Fart?” […]

Ask Max Monday: The True Nature of the Blurpy

Max, the human used to wake up at 6 and that was breakfast time. Now the wakes up at 5, but breakfast is still at 6! Should we not get our breakfast earlier, since the human wakes up earlier? Once a person’s feet hit the floor, it’s food o’clock. Period. In fact, it’s AFTER food […]

These Boobs are Made for Walkin. And That’s Just What He’ll Do…..

These Boobs are Made for Walkin. And That’s Just What He’ll Do…..

Buckaroo is perhaps the strangest cat I’ve ever had. I’m not surprised he likes to make biscuits on my boobs–which itself makes purrfect sense. He drools while he does it. But he also paces across my boobs, back-and-forth, back-and-forth, the minute I go to bed. When he steps on them, he always hits the bullseye. […]
