  • I don’t think Little and Big were ever really chubby although I guess Big was closer. Yes, they were both on the short side, and like I think I said, Little was NEVER over 5 lbs…while Big was about 11. I think that is as heavy as she ever got. I saw her as small compared to Pie and Misty.

    Pie was a chubby thing, he weighted at one point…[Read more]

  • trump sadly is the same now as he was at the beginning, and represents corruption including nepotism and has sadly all along. He has very little that I want or need to hear. My full focus is on doing whatever small amount I can to get him out of office, because I honestly think he may be the death of this nation and all the good that it has…[Read more]

  • Like I said, Misty had a mind of her own. In addition, the young gal that put her in my car either lied (very possible) or didn’t know and just assumed that she was fixed. Anyway, she gave birth.

    We didn’t […]

    • LOVE Big bit and Little Bit. They look so cute….and beautiful.
      Mind you…both would be Little Bits in my household. Chubs…..is a petite 18lbs. He lost 2 lbs a few years ago and plateaued. How he maintains this steady 18lbs is beyond me 😉
      Clove to us is so fragile as she hovers around 10lbs. Ha!
      Your cats look so chubby but they are not. They must be short?
      Thanks for sharing the story of how your family came to be 😉

        Pie was a chubby thing, he weighted at one point about 16 or 17 lbs…and misty was “fluffy” at least. I will let you check on the rest of them as I post them. But then I think I already did my current, ie Patches, who hqw been bigger. She is about 15 and beginning to scare me a bit as she seems to now be losing weight especially in back section. That scares me because it is often a sign of loss of muscle and a sign of old age. (that leaves Munchie and Leo)

        But back to Little, she was always small, and also a bit of the fragile side, but she had her opinion about things… 🙂 And plenty of willingness to let you know what she thought.

    hmmm, I bought a Roku attachment, which, if I ever get around to hooking it up, might be the answer. It has only been 3 weeks..LOL

    Wow it is funny Too bad I don’t have Hulu. Maybe I need to check on getting that.

  • what was funny is that he should stood there and let her slap. He was my baby for sure. I think males, as long as they are neutered, almost always tend to be calmer. Leo might have been the one exception, but I will tell you about that in a later blog.

  • The second cat that I got was Misty. The same person, a young person whose father’s was the custodian in the apartment complex I lived in, introduced me to this cat as well—by sneaking her into the car when I […]

    • Oh my gosh….she sounds like an older more ….um…bitchier version of my cat Clove.
      Your cats are a little on the chunky side but have beautiful fur.
      Clove tries to run the house….but for Chubs (the oder male cat) sake we put her in her place with a water bottle when needed. They told us at the Animal Shelter that she would be the dominant cat because she is a female. And when we started seeing her trying to boss Chubs around we put a stop to it because Chubs is our older more gentle cat and he deserves RESPECT damn it. 😉

      AND HOW DARE MISTY SLAP PIE!!!!

  • I think they carry this “at the scene” stuff just a bit too far sometimes.

  • Hey, Laura seems to have missed New Orleans. I think it did quite a bit of damage along the border with Texas and then of course into Texas. The city in Louisiana that got the most damage seems to have been Lake Charles.

  • That has always been the outcome with me and my cats for sure. 🙂 People sometimes say that their cat isn’t allowed to do this or that….and I always think…really and how do you really stop them.. 🙂

    Of course, I will admit that I haven’t ever really tried very hard….they are just so sure of themselves and so sweet about it.

  • I have seen that happen with cats of mine, when one went the vet and the other didn’t, the ones that didn’t go would react negatively and hiss and such. It took a little time but eventually they got over it, But if it has been several days, it might a good idea, if they need to go anyway, to equalize things. 🙂

    Yeah, he was a Sweetie Pie,…[Read more]

  • Actually, I tend to think your brother was lucky although If I managed to get the same effect, I would probably prefer to think it was my talent also. 🙂

  • I grew up in a house with dogs…..big dogs outside and chihuahuas inside. Cats were part of the woodwork outside, never came in the house except one that we thought was a female till it got hit by a car and […]

    • What a Cutie Pie 😉
      Got more to say….but I am tired. I took my older cat to the Vet Friday and when we brought him home my other cat CAN NOT STAND HIM. She can not stop hissing at him and does not want him in the same room. So I have had to play referee all weekend. I finally decided to take them to the groomer tomorrow so they both will smell the same. HOPEFULLY that will solve this problem. Fingers crossed.

        Yeah, he was a Sweetie Pie, but definitely had a mind of his own.

    • Cats don’t have to demand attention or preferential treatment. . .they just get it.

  • I don’t know how to start a thread, other than to just post a blog. I might do that later today or tomorrow, and maybe feature all the cats I have had over the last 29 years with a bit of background on each.

  • By the way, we may sadly have an answer to the question of whether someone can get it more than once:

  • I don’t think it was man mad in the sense that some mad scientist brewed it up in a lab, although I could possibly be wrong on that. I do think that our pollution and continued abuse of the atmosphere has caused things to morph and mutant and become worse.

  • I am retired, did so in 2014, so at least i no longer have incompetent owners and bosses to cope with, but as you point, your situation at work is the same situation, written smaller, of what is currently going on in that nation as an whole, so we all have to deal with the horror of a future that is at threat.

    Hang in there.

  • found one and added it to the post. 🙂
