Bubba Cat here with a news flash: Zika is no joke!   Just yesterday a newspaper in Houston reported that 6 pregnant woman in the county have tested positive for the virus.   So what does the Centers for Disease Control recommend you do to protect yourself? Among other things, you should build a zika … Continue reading

And When it Rains, it Pours…

Because just when you thought things could not possibly get any worse… Bubba is not doing so well.     Lately he’s taken to sleeping in the bathroom closet. This morning after he ate breakfast, Bubba jumped from the sink to a shelf in the bathroom closet and napped on the towels. I had field … Continue reading

Rest in Peace June Buggie

My little ranter has died. Two weeks ago we were at the vet because he wasn’t eating. They drew blood from his jugular and felt nothing unusual in his neck. The blood work looked good. Last week we were back because he was worse. The tumor had grown rapidly, because now it could be felt. … Continue reading

June Buggie’s Latest Vet Visit

Today I took June Buggie back to the vet because he has not gotten any better. The vet found a tumor on his neck beneath his right ear. The tumor is huge- about the size of a golf ball. It’s not observable because it’s located deep. The vet said that she’s not sure if removal … Continue reading

Please Keep Buggie in Your Thoughts

I mix it in with kibble and he eats all the chicken and most of the kibble. Otherwise he won’t eat his dog food. Now Bubba has decided … Continue reading

Living with Cats

I talked about how Rumpy is such a comfort to me since the election. But there are also cats that live in this home who are keeping me on the straight and narrow. I don’t have time to wallow in anger and hurt; I have two elderly cats with hyperthyroidism who are always hungry and … Continue reading

Friskies Cat Concoctions? RU Crazy?

Let me start by saying I was NOT compensated in any way for this blog post… unless you count the free can of cat food that I found inside a container of cat litter. And finding that free can was the only reason I even tried this new Friskies canned food. I mean, chicken in … Continue reading

Cats as Teachers and Healers

It’s cold here, and the cats all want to cuddle.  Unfortunately, that means cuddling with me. I have sciatica and arthritis in my hips and knees. When I lie down for the night I spend a bit of time tossing and turning until I get comfortable. I also have to fight cats to be able … Continue reading

Cats and Yoga: It’s a Thing!

I practice yoga, though I used to have a hard time admitting it. Yoga is marketed to upper middle class people who use yoga as a way to let the rest of us to know they’re better than we are because they are healthy and we are not. You know the ones; they wear specially designed yoga … Continue reading
