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 […]

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 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 […]

Buckaroo is still licking his wounds over his Fainting Goat Cat video not making it to the finals of a recent cat video contest despite pandering to the sponsors and doing some damned fine stunt cat work. He lost to a bunch of lame Vines. So he was very excited to see that Fresh Step […]

4/20 was National Weed Day, and I’m not talking dandelions and crabgrass. Why 4/20? According to Time Magazine: The most credible story traces the date to Marin County, Calif. In 1971, five students at San Rafael High School would reportedly meet at 4:20 p.m. by the campus’s statue of chemist Louis Pasteur to partake. Two of […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
