Here We Go

Dear Kitties, Behave yourselves today while Mommy is at her new job. Don’t destroy anything… valuable. Don’t poop (too far) outside the box. And please, please don’t fight amongst yourselves because you blame each other for Mommy’s absence! Also, Daddy’s only gone for a few hours in the morning so feel free to follow him … Continue reading

The New Reality Starts Next Week

Alright, kids and cats, it’s time to come clean. I’m starting a new job next week. Like, a real one where I have to be there all day, which means the Wheezies will be very much on their own for big chunks of the day which hasn’t happened in a while. I expect much poop … Continue reading

Future Predictions of Lame Pets

So I was playing MASH with a 9 year old yesterday… You know: And the categories were Boy I Will Marry, How Many Children I Will Have, What Type of Car I’ll Drive, and What Pet I’ll Have. And then, of course, Mansion Apartment Shack House. While I doubt I’ll have 14 children or marry … Continue reading


    Cat stretches are the greatest!   Especially when the cat in question makes groany old man noises. Errrrrrrgggaaaaaahhhhhrrruuuuuuuffffffffff!    


One of my Facebook friends wrote “Maybe the watched pot rule also applies to waiting for power to go out?” Too true. I was so ready yesterday with my flashlights and books to read and turning off my computer “just in case” and then… it just never happened. For which, by the way, I am … Continue reading
