Please Keep Buggie in Your Thoughts

June Buggie is not well. Since Rumpy’s death, June Buggie has been acting sick. At first I thought he was mourning, but he hasn’t snapped out of it. So today we went to the vet. I showed her his back where he fur fell out last week after I applied Revolution. I told her about … Continue reading

Tiny Little Furry Monsters

I have created monsters! Tiny little furry monsters. When Rumpy had pneumonia, I started feeding him chicken to get him to eat. Now he insists on it. 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

Today is National Feral Cat Day

Today is a day set aside by Alley Cat Allies to talk about the issue of homeless cats and let you know how you can get involved in helping these kitties. Hissy Fit Jones and Little Girl, both 8 years old, were born to feral mothers. Hissy was at the vet yesterday getting annual shots. He also has an … Continue reading

All Things Cat

Cats are in the news this weekend.  First, Bubba Cat had his turn at the vet, and his bloodwork results were upsetting. He, too, has hyperthyroidism. To be honest, I hadn’t considered hyperthyroidism with Bubba because he hasn’t been as ravenous as Junior was when first diagnosed. But he does show other symptoms, such as weight … Continue reading

Cat Stuff

We have a new vet! I’m happy to have found a vet clinic that meets the needs of my family. They’re friendly, caring folks and knowledgeable. I am relieved. This past Saturday June Buggie gave them a try. He had an annual exam and vaccinations to include blood work to test his thyroid level. He … Continue reading

Idiots and Fireworks: A Love Story

And so it begins.  Sunday afternoon someone in this neighborhood shot off firecrackers. One. At. A. Time. All. After. Noon. Long. It was VERY annoying, but it was hot so I stayed inside and cranked up the radio. July 4th should be interesting this year. There are lots of dogs in this neighborhood living outside … Continue reading
