Fierce Friday

Sweetie, showing off her toofs...very scary!

Chucky, looking mysterious and dangerous
Much attention is given to black cats at this time of year.  Personally, I've never met a cat that I didn't like, no matter what their fur color!  People who adopt according to color are WRONG; personality should always be the first consideration.  Let the cat choose you!

Have a terrific weekend, everyone!

Lil BUB Store!

Am just in love with Lil Bub!  Have you seen her on the interwebs?  Check out her website here.
Isn't she sweet?
But here's news!  BUB has her own physical STORE, in Bloomington, Indiana.  Of course, one can order all kinds of BUB stuff online, but I gonna have to figure out a way to get to Indiana.  Check it out here!

I want to meet Lil BUB in, the fur.  I watch her site and Facebook to see if she and her dude (Mike Bridavsky) are visiting any place nearer to home.  Gonna make it happen!

Wordless Wednesday

Sweetie Selfie
Okay, forget about wordless!  In the past few weeks, Sweetie has allowed me pet her with both hands, let me pick her up slightly, and withstood smooching without twisting away in horror,  Hearing her purrs shoots a dart of love straight through my heart.  The Hubby says he's been able to touch Sweetie too.  Yippee!

My Man Magoo

Magoo was a stray kitten who wandered into the yard of my sister and her family.  My niece cared for him, took him to the veterinarian, and brought him home.  My Bro-in-law put his foot down: NO CATS!  Then, he'd find the kitten in his daughter's room.  BIL said, 'I don't want any stinky litter boxes around', and my sweet niece purchased a covered one!  Before long, that kitten was snuggling on BIL's lap, and the two are quite devoted to each other.  "Ma-GUUUU, Ma-GUUUU!" he calls, and Magoo comes a-runnin'. Together, they roll and tumble, play fetch with a ping pong ball, and chase wand toys, (Magoo does that, not BIL!)

Except when I showed up, and Magoo slept with me!  Well, for one night at least...

I returned home from the weekend trip, covered in white cat hair, and very happy to have finally met Magoo in the fur.

Here are some additional highlights of my trip:

People dressed up their pooches for Halloween
A box turtle discovered on a walk in the woods

Fungus on a dead tree

Moss growing on roots

Must NOT forget Sandy, who ran around the woods with us like a puppy.  She is very sweet, and I loved when she sat on my feet.
Love ya, Sandy girl!

"Wasn't me!"

This morning, the household arose as usual; the meals for humans and cats were prepared and distributed as usual, the litter boxes were scooped and cared for as usual.  As I turned the corner to walk upstairs to don my work clothes, I spied a small hairball output on the wood floor.  I spun back around, grabbed the cleaning items, and made short work of it.  While depositing the trash, I told The Hubby that 'someone' had coughed up a hairball.  He said, "Well, it wasn't me!"  Made me laugh out loud, and suddenly getting ready for Monday's work did not seem as daunting.

Interrogating the usual suspects garnered little information...

"You have no evidence that it was me!", Angel says

"What?!" exclaims Chucky

Patty O'Malley: "Hey, I don't even go in the house...!

Cancelled Cat Car Cruise

Making like Sherlock Holmes, I studied the litter boxes after work yesterday. I scooped, I broke up peeballs, and I compared sizes.  All in all, everything looked normal (yay!), so I cancelled Angel's vet appointment.  We've been mixing even more filtered water into her meals lately, so her 'output' seems elevated, but the peeball size is good.  No marbles!

Of course, I know what extra peeing means for a cat, not to mention that she's been eating more also. However, the weather has just begun to turn colder, and I've noticed that ALL of the cats are chowing down. Therefore, we have moved into observation mode for awhile.  My new Cat Car did not go anywhere*!

Angel's body weight is good, if not perfect.  She continues to be skittish at certain times of the day, remembering the week that The Hubby picked her up to administer the liquid antibiotics.  She'll get over that with lots of petting and hugging and such.

*The Hubby has driven The Cat Car a lot; to the auto part store to get a new air cleaner, then to the Honda dealership to actually buy an air cleaner, to the insurance agency, and to the Michigan Secretary of State (DMV). Today, he's driving it around for grocery shopping and I hope to buy a CD/radio and have is installed.  He tells me that I'm not getting The Cat Car at all now; it's his and I can keep driving his car as I have been!  HO NO, that ain't gonna fly, Mister!  I only asked to drive the old car of ONE MORE DAY, so I can finish disc 13 & 14 of a mystery thriller book-on-CD (45 minutes to work, 1 hour lunch, 45 minutes drive home).  And then I go away this weekend, driving my mother's SUV, so The Hubby will have both cars to play with, and hopefully to sell or junk the old mushed-up-and-not-street-legal-anymore tan car.

Battlewagon Wednesday


The Hubby will do ANYTHING to avoid calling the plumber, so he decided that I needed a new battlewagon for my work commute (and frequent trips to the veterinarians).  Yesterday, he showed up at my office...SURPRISE!...with this silver cutie car.  Excellent gas mileage, body in good shape, new tires and brakes.  The red car that I am currently driving will revert back to him.  As I am going away for a long weekend with family, The Hubby will give my new cat car a good going-over, and probably a new radio/CD thingy.  Weeee!  Thank you, kind sir!  On Monday, the cat car is MINE.

P.S. Angel and I will visit the veterinarian tonight.  Your comments had some good information, for which I thank you very much, and I'll report on how things go in my next post.
