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

June Buggie and Me: #PurrfectTogether

(This post is sponsored by Meow Mix Bistros)   June Buggie is not an easy cat to love. In that respect, we are perfect for each other. We are both rather crotchety as we age together. Junior (that’s his given name) and Bubba came to live with me around 15 years ago after a co-worker … Continue reading

The Neverending War on Homeless Cats

I am a fan of Gwen Cooper, the author of the books about Homer the blind wonder cat. Homer has moved on from this realm, but Gwen continues to write about cats and topics of importance to cat lovers. This week Gwen sent out an email to her readers alerting us to a book being hawked … Continue reading

Vets: Why Don’t They Treat Pets Like Family?

I am LIVID! This morning I took June Buggie to his new vet for a follow-up visit for his thyroid. When I called to make the appointment, I told them what it was for. I explained he had not had this service with their clinic before. I was given no instructions regarding prepping for the … Continue reading

Fireworks, Idiots and Sociopaths

Last night at 12:30 am, some idiot set off powerful fireworks here in the neighborhood. Approximately 5 minutes later they set off a second time. I know what time it was because the explosion woke me from a sound sleep. It also startled the neighbor’s dog who lives his life at the end of a … 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

Where Have You Been?

Sorry I’ve been so quiet lately. I’m still settling into the new home and a new routine in a new location, and I haven’t got my schedule down yet. I’m also now grieving for Malachi.     The cats LOVE the new place! There is an upstairs room and in addition to having extra space to run and … Continue reading

Update on June Buggie

It’s been two weeks since June Buggie was hurt. For several days he remained confined to Rumpy’s crate that was converted into a makeshift hospital ward. There was room for a litter box, food, water, and a towel to lie on, but no room to move around, which was good because he didn’t need to be moving … Continue reading
