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 […]

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.
