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

Thanks for Listening!

One of the things I am most grateful for is being heard.  Sad, isn’t it? In a world filled with noise, we don’t listen to each other. For me, I feel I am heard so infrequently that it actually shocks me when people get what I’m trying to say. For example, this month is employee … 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

Scenes from Rumpy’s Gotcha Day

My sweet dog celebrated his Gotcha Day Thursday in true Rumpydog style. I got up that morning and my internet service was down. So no blog post. Then yesterday was the big hack, so nobody was doing much of anything online. That’s OK though, we’re all here now and there are pictures!   Let the … Continue reading

Pet Guardianship: Not All Peaches and Cream

Mommy bloggers want us all to believe that parenting is 24/7 joy and fun. Sadly, so do many pet bloggers. I’m not one of them.  To be honest, some days caring for a fur kid really sucks. Right now I am fuming because I have worked so hard to get the cats upstairs. I have … 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

Why Do I Eat That?

As I grow older I find myself asking many of the same questions I did as a young child. Why? Many of the answers I get as an adult sound similar to those I got as a child. “Because I’m the mommy/daddy/responsible adult in charge and I said so, that’s why.” I find myself asking … 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
