The Freckle Song

Hissy Fit Jones has written a song called “The Freckle Song.” You can sing along to the tune of “If You’re Happy and You Know It.” OK everyone, sing along… or don’t. Hissy doesn’t care either way. I got freckles in my ears, in my ears. I got freckles in my ears, in my ears. … Continue reading

Where in the World is Hissy Fit Jones?

I know, it’s too long between blog posts. But, honestly, WordPress’ latest format makes it hard as hell to create a blog post, and it frustrates our typist. See this photo of me? She tried for 30 minutes to shrink the size.  Rest assured we are all doing fine. I got my teeth cleaned and … Continue reading

All the Latest by Hissy Fit Jones

Meow! I’m finally back! It’s been so long since our last post because lots of terrible things have been happening around here. Worst of all? Jen promised me that once the government shutdown ended, she would make me an appointment for a dental. As old as she is, that’s one promise she didn’t forget. She … Continue reading

Why I Don’t Like You by Hissy Fit Jones

Dear Diary, Jen has decided to relinquish the blog back to our control, and now I have to come up with cute and funny things to say to humans. But why? Why should I entertain a bunch of hairless homo-sapiens that don’t care about anything but themselves? Besides, humans look funny and they talk funny. … Continue reading

The Spirit of the Season?

Ah, nothing brings out the sense of entitlement in some people like the holidays! From the so-called War on Christmas to the war on Starbucks cups, a good sense of moral outrage can really stir up the spirit of the season in some.  This year, in addition to anger over not being wished a Merry … Continue reading

Christmas Trees and Self-Esteem

I have up a Christmas tree. It’s a 3-foot flimsy job I ordered on Amazon. It came with a bent stem that I broke while trying to fix it, but I was able to fix up the little guy with some wire so it will stand through this holiday season at least.  I savor the … Continue reading

What I’ve Learned From Yella’s Diete

Yella Fella’s diet is not going smoothly. You’d think it would be so simple: just give him less food. But no behavior change comes easy, even for a cat. Each morning at 5 am he sings me his Song of Despair until I get up and go downstairs to feed him. I must monitor feedings because … Continue reading

An SOS from Yella Fella

Yella Fella here calling out around the world for HELP!!! You see, that mean old vet doctor said I had to lose weight, and now I’m on a diet! Jen feeds me twice a day and watches me like a hawk during both meals so I don’t try to sneak off and eat somebody else’s … Continue reading

Yella’s Diet- 3 Weeks In

Time for a dieting update! As you recall, Yella has been told by TWO different vets that he needs to lose weight. And while we had good intentions, his persistence and my depression meant no weight loss for Yella. But now that things are looking better for me, I decided it was time to tackle … Continue reading

I’m Getting Better. The Cats are Getting Worse.

I told you last April about Little Girl’s fearful behavior and Graybie’s aggressive behavior toward her.  Since taking her to the vet, I’ve tried Feliway diffusers and calming collars. I’ve bought interactive toys and engaged in play with the cats. I’ve given Little Girl time alone and fed her away from the others. Things got … Continue reading
