On Moving a Multi-Pet Family

We are in middle Tennessee. For the most part, the move went smoothly. There were some issues- there always are- but we survived….. well, I’ll get to that later. If you are planning a move with your multi-pet household, here are a few tips that have worked well for me. Accept that the moving preparations … Continue reading

Letting Go

As you know, we are soon moving to a new place in a new town. And as you know, Malachi died. I chose to bury Malachi in the yard beneath a tree here. It’s a tree where birds sing to us, and one of the homeless kitties often uses the tree to climb onto the … Continue reading

In Memory of Malachi

Sunday night he ate his supper and seemed fine. Monday morning I found him in distress and struggling to breathe. I loaded him up to go to the vet but he died before we got there. Honestly, I’m in shock about it all so I don’t know what to say. Here is a post about how … Continue reading

Adventures Await Us!

When Rumpy and I walk, there are places he likes to go to check the latest pee-mails. But he also likes to check on his peeps of all species. He has to walk up the alley behind our house to make sure all the surveyors came to work. They stand around outside before heading out for … Continue reading

Lessons Learned from Homeless Cats

When Rumpy and I are out for walks, the homeless cats remain still until we pass by.    It’s a smart strategy. When afraid, most animals either fight or flee. But being still throws a predator off guard. “Hmmm…. not afraid? Maybe I should keep looking.” When I’m afraid, I tend to start running my … Continue reading

He is one of the regulars at Beth’s Diner, the feeding station for all the homeless cats in the neighborhood. Recently during our afternoon walk, Rumpy and … Continue reading

Taking My Dog to a Job Interview

I have always been fool enough to believe a job should be offered the person who is the most qualified. Yet you can be the biggest fuck-up the world has ever seen and bullshit your way through an interview to get hired. Having resigned myself to the reality that I need to brush up on my BS, I started … Continue reading

How a Curmudgeon Learns to Be Positive

She was a petite cream-color kitty with black facial markings and striking blue eyes. I often noticed her seated in the upstairs window of the apartment building Rumpy and I passed by on our morning walks. And then a week ago we spotted her outside. She was fearful of Rumpy, though he was across the … Continue reading

The Gift of Health, Courtesy of Rumpy and JB

Among the many gifts given me by Rumpy and June Buggie is the gift of health. Because of Rumpy I get out and get moving each day. June Buggie keeps me on a regular schedule with his insistence he be fed at the same time each morning. And then there is the gift of mental … Continue reading

Of Pets and Power Suits

First thing this morning I had to appear in court. WAIT! No, this is NOT a post about work, I promise! But it’s important to tell you that I had to put on my best game face today, and we women know all too well that wearing that power suit makes you look and feel more confident. … Continue reading
