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

Seven Years Ago…

Seven years ago I started this blog. That’s the longest I’ve stuck with anything. I had hoped to monetize it to support my animal rescue habit. Things didn’t quite work out that way. Instead I found an avenue of expression that I enjoyed and was pretty good at, if I do say so myself. The best … Continue reading

Gun Safety and Lots of Dogs

Yesterday I helped man an outreach booth for a group that promotes sensible gun legislation. I enjoyed speaking with people about their ideas of how we can put an end to the gun violence epidemic that is ravaging our country and terrorizing its’ citizens. I also interacted with a lot of dogs. There were dogs … Continue reading

Finally! A Relaxing App for Cat Lovers!

How’s Little Girl Doing?

I still have the diffusers going. And I am offering Little Girl time alone in the bedroom. As far as Hissy goes, I … Continue reading

Dear Little Girl, What Can the Matter Be?

Little Girl has decided she no longer wants to go downstairs to eat. For the life of me I don’t know why. Instead she stands at the top of the stairs and meows pitifully. She won’t come downstairs no matter how much I beg, and she won’t let me pick her up and take her … Continue reading

Making Memories

My dad died. I’ve been trying to make sense of things since I got the news. Our relationship was…. complicated, and I don’t want to talk about that here. Death makes me think of a clean cut with a sharp knife that removes a limb, but not the phantom sensations. My father is no longer … Continue reading

My, How Time Flies…

Wow, has it actually been a month since my last post? Apparently so. We are all OK. How are you doing? Monday night I watched the local station online during the severe weather. Little Girl was fascinated with the radar and watched as well. We had hail here. About 20 miles away there was tornado … Continue reading

Euthanasia Drug in Pet Food?

Think the food you feed your dog or cat is safe? Maybe. Maybe not. Guess what a news station found in dog food? Continue reading
