Why I Suck at Dating

I recently met a man for dinner. This is not a small thing; it’s the first recent date I’ve had. I thought it went well, but I thought wrong. I haven’t heard from him since. Social interactions, especially in dating situations, confuse and frustrate me. I used to think there was something seriously wrong until … Continue reading

Live: Online and in Person!

Well hello again. I hope this missive finds you well. The cats are all OK. Little Girl and Graybow are easing into a truce, which means fewer cat fights and no poop on the floor. Here’s hoping it lasts. I am still working full-time from home and part-time slinging groceries around town, which, as I’ve … Continue reading

Adventures in Online Dating

In the midst of a pandemic I decided to give online dating a try. It’s weird, actually. For the past several years I’ve been so shut down that I rarely had any meaningful contact with another human being, but one day I decided I was tired of being lonesome and when I discussed it with … Continue reading

Essential Worker Blues

You may not think you know me, but you do. I deliver your groceries. I have a full-time job, but I need the extra money, so when I deliver to you on a weekday evening it’s after having put in a full day’s work elsewhere. If I’m delivering to you on a weekend, it means … Continue reading

Coronavirus and the Clueless

I live in Alabama. This state votes Republican because… well, just because. Lots of people carry guns on them. Not sure why. I’ve never found myself in a situation where I felt I needed one. Lots of people here love them some Jesus. This weekend a Trump 2020 bus was parked in a lot just … Continue reading

Soliciting Advice for My Cats’ Problematic Behavior

Yeah, I know it’s been 4 months. Time flies, doesn’t it? Hope you are doing well and surviving either winter or summer (depending on where you live). Things here are… well, different. Not bad, necessarily, but not great either. But this blog post isn’t to play catch-up. I need your help. You see, I have … Continue reading

KNN Reports…

With all the news that I feel like printing, I’m Yella Fella for the Kitty News Network. Jen took this photo this morning and noticed some redness around my left eye. A cursory check revealed a knot forming on my eyelid. It appears to be on the outside of the eyelid, but she is concerned … Continue reading

Jen Bought a New Toy!

Jen did something she’s never done before: she pre-ordered the latest iPhone. It came in the mail yesterday and she has been getting used to it. She’s not so sure she likes the facial recognition. But she LOVES the camera! Think you will too after you see these photos. No, this is not an advertisement for Apple. But … Continue reading

Sorry to Leave you Hanging…

Yella’s surgery was a rousing success! He had to wear a cone for several days and Jen put ointment in his eyes for a couple weeks, but look at him now! The biopsy results confirmed granulominous conjunctivitis.  Yella’s going to remain on lysine forever I guess, so help prevent another flare-up, because this could happen … Continue reading

Not-so-good News at the Vet Today

Hi everybody! We went back to the veterinary ophthalmologist today and the news wasn’t what I wanted to hear. She told me and Jen that my eyes aren’t getting any better with medication and she doesn’t want to up the steroid dosage because it could impact my liver, kidneys, and cause diabetes. Surgery is the … Continue reading
