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 […]

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 […]

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…..

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. […]

Rally Cat Scores One for the SL Cardinals as Angels Weep

Last week another cat was added to the long list of baseball lovin’ felines who believe that (baseball) diamonds are the cat’s best friend. Of course, baseball is uniquely well-suited as a feline sport of choice, what with all the nommy blue jays, cardinals, orioles, and yes, even Tigers! The orange tabby seemed to materialize out […]

MCM Kitteh Art You Can Afford!

I’m a fiend for anything mid-century modern. I went ga-ga over the cat print in Pete Campbell’s NYC apartment on Mad Men. So I was excited to see this collection of MCM cat art by Texas artist Donna Mibus, and over the moon to see that a 16X20″ canvas print is only $75. Original canvas […]

PAWternity Leave Widespread in the UK

In a trend that I hope will spread to the U.S., more firms in the U.K. are giving employees paid time off work when they get a new pet. This thrills me on a number of different fronts. First, of course, as an animal lover, I’ve experienced the separation anxiety of leaving a new cat […]

Give ’em da Bird with a Cat Flipping Tee

I’ve had both bosses and co-workers I’ve despised (well, the feeling was mutual, I’m sure). I would sit in interminable meetings wishing I could have one cinematic moment of drama in which I would fearlessly and flawlessly tell them exactly what I thought of them in an Oscar-worthy monologue. But those moments never came, and […]

We all get excited waiting for the postman to arrive each day. My ears are tuned to the sound of his engine turning off and on as he makes his way up the street.
