Maybe it was all the talk of New Year’s resolutions that got me thinking about it. Or maybe it was a blog written about puppy mill dogs from another blogger. Resolutions are essentially a hope that we can unlearn something and relearn or take on something more beneficial. For dogs that have had the misfortune…Read more »
Just a quick update for those of you wondering how Rita is doing… The answer is: better. She is having a good time seeing lots of other kitties at Barb’s house and has perked up a good deal. She is still having trouble passing stool, and needs nightly massages to help her do that. Very…Read more »
I discovered a new item last week and got some for the cats – Cattystacks. Boxes. Really fun boxes. The company’s slogan is “because cats like boxes.” You can put as many together in whatever configuration you want.

In our house, the dinner dance is performed nightly by two dogs and six cats, each using their own inimitable…Read more »
Why the name Minh? Because Miller seemed wrong. I don’t often respond to the Daily Prompt, but every once in awhile, it catches my attention. Today’s prompt asks how someone was named. Sometimes the name of our pets have just come to us, like Thomas. I knew his name somehow before I even met him.…Read more »
It was good of these two to leave me a space here…but I don’t think I’ve been small enough to fit there in many a decade!
Mandy, an elegant black cat, loves some people and is very affectionate with her chosen few. I’m not one of them. I’ve seen pictures of her on the laps of folks. People tell tales of her climbing all over them or head-butting them. But when I come to pet sit her, under the couch or the…Read more »
