It's Been A Decade

We started this cat blog on 22 September, 2013.

I enjoy it, because cats are highly entertaining, and love to read other blogs too.

Thank you all for your support!

Please enjoy this slideshow of some of the earliest photos of our cat ❤️❤️❤️ at Eastside Cats.

International Day of Peace

21 September is designated by The United Nations as International Day of Peace.

Read more here,

This year’s theme is Actions for Peace: Our Ambition for the #GlobalGoals

It is a call to action that recognizes our individual and collective responsibility to foster peace.

Fostering peace contributes to the realization of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals will create a culture of peace for all.

United Nations Secretary-General Antรณnio Guterres said, "Peace is needed today more than ever. 

War and conflict are unleashing devastation, poverty, and hunger, and driving tens of millions of people from their homes. 
Climate chaos is all around.

And even peaceful countries are gripped by gaping inequalities and political polarization."

Manny and Chili Bruce, napping in peaceful slumber.

Am thankful for those who love me, who talk me down from the stresses of life.

It means more than you know.

A Decade

It's Sweetnesday!

10 years ago, she was living outside.

That she's an inside-only cat now makes my heart go pitter-patter; just love her!
September, 2013.

Sweetie was the Queen of The Yard.

Cats Be Wee Pirates

Aren't they?

They steal your stuff.

'Nuff said!

A few memes and cartoons for your viewing pleasure on "Meow Like a Cat Day"!

It's PO'Monday!

September, 2014.

These images seem atmospheric and moody.

Guess the angle of the sunshine gets steeper as we move into Autumn.

Methinks the mood made Celestial Pommy look even more handsome.

For a family wedding, we were in Saugatuck, Michigan.

For more information on this quaint town near Lake Michigan, try here.

While many folks were walking dogs in the shopping district, of course I managed to find CATS!

These babies had been TNR'd, as they have eartips.

This cat did not enjoy close human proximity.
These two were so very friendly!
While traveling through town, we pulled over because I was sure these were cat cutouts in the window shutters!
Alas, they aren't cats but squirrels, but they are cute.

Always on the look out for cats!

It's Caturday!

Da Boyz were being extra adorable, on top of the refrigerator.

This pic didn't come out very well with lighting and focus, so I played with my Primsa app.

The '8bit' filter was, like, wild man...then I added a frame.

Gadzooks, this is pretty lively!

15 September is Felt Hat Day!

Am so very thankful to have such EXCELLENT cat models:
Sweetie says, "Meowdy, Pardners!" in her rakishly angled felt cowboy hat.
Um...Manny looks...er, um...interesting, in his felt top hat.
CB looks daggers while showing off his felt bowler hat.
Manny, you're doing it wrong!
Disclaimer: No cats were harmed during this photoshoot, even if they obviously preferred to be doing ANYTHING ELSE but wear those hats!

New Friends

Folks, am just ticked pink to have found some new 'hood cat friends in windows!
And here I thought I'd seen every 'hood kitty there was, but NOPE!

I'll try to find names for these sweeties, should I ever come across their human servants.

Am thankful that cats are so beloved around us.

Trip UP

It's Sweetnesday!

In May, while ascending the stairs with both hands full of Sweetie's breakfast and bowls, I managed to hook my left big toe in the billowy fabric of my right pajama bottom.

As I fell forward, desperately trying to keep all cat food contained, the strain on my toe was extreme.

I had a purple toe for many weeks, and pain.

Was chuffed that I hadn't spilled anything!

Now, in September, the toe still aches.

I bit the bullet, and saw a doctor last week.

He said, "See that extra piece there?  Well, it's not supposed to be there!"

Yup, I'd broken my toe, and nope, nothing to do about it.

The doc said come back if it still hurts in a year, as that is how long this type of thing takes to heal.

If I'd splashed that gushy, smelly stuff all over the staircase, Sweetie would have been upset with having to wait until after the clean-up for noms.

What's a broken toe when her schedule must be maintained?  
Queen Sweet the First: "Harrumph!  Such histrionics, servant.  Allow me to show you how much I appreciate your sacrifice on...my...be...half....Zzzz...zzzz....zzzz..."

And how many folks trip going UP the stairs?

I have talent!
It has been mentioned by a certain somebody that these pajamas are DANGEROUS and should be binned immediately.

But looky, they are my favorite flannel pair, and there are Meowy Catmas Cats.

Perhaps I'll add elastic to keep them from being so billowy.

Sweetie says: "Zzz..zzz...zzzz..."

It's Twozday!

Imagine my surprise when trolling through our photo library, to find this:
Celestial Chuck, in 2016.
Manny, in 2023.
Same bed, same window, only different junk.

The Hubby will be the first to say that Manny seems very similar to Chuck.

However, Chuck was very shy and didn't like visitors.

We had folks over last week, and Manny was right there, sniffing shoes and legs, and trying to jump on the table to check out the eats.

Chili Bruce's tail poofed, and he stayed far away, and kept checking around after they'd left to make sure they were gone!

Now the question is: who matches whom?
❓ ❓ ❓ ❓

It's PO'Monday!

September, 2016: Celestial Paddy O'Malley was at his zaniest!
Hope these images bring a smile to your face, as they have mine.

We will never forget.

Came across these stars recently; what could they mean?

Silvery snowflake starry thing, in a neighbor's lawn.
A star-shaped charm or plastic toy in the middle of the sidewalk.
Chalk star AND cats!
 No matter what, seeing stars can't be a bad thing, right?


Visiting with my gorgeous 'hood boyfriend Sly will always make me feel starry-eyed.
Sly spends a lot of time on his bench these days, giving me the purrfect place to sit and properly worship his supreme floofiness.
If you've got any interesting ideas on why I'm seeing stars, make a comment.

Serious or just for fun, you know we LURV to read them!

Lights Out for Birds

Let's all do something to help the birds.

It's Caturday!

 An image from a recent garden walk, which I artified with Prisma, using the Tokyo filter.

I like the texture of the leaves, and the water drops.

Beam Me Up

"On Sept. 8, 1966, Star Trek debuted for the first time on television with “The Man Trap.” On that day, Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry introduced audiences to a world that championed diversity, inclusion, acceptance, and hope."

We watched TOS: The Original Series in reruns as a kid, but I know every episode, every quote, and learned a lesson with each one.

I lost interest with the later TV shows, and have missed all of the more modern movies, but I'll always consider myself a Trekker.

Enjoy a few memes copied from social media for your entertainment.
This last one is too hilarious!

 Live long and prosper, my friends.

๐Ÿฆ„ Unicorn๐Ÿฆ„

 Imagine my surprise, when out of a mailing package, this GORGEOUS unicorn cat hat appeared!!!

And look how adorable Manny is!
๐Ÿฆ„Thank you, MJ!๐Ÿฆ„

P.S. MJ reports that she tried the hat on each of her cats, yet none wanted anything to do with it.

P.S.S. Yes, I have a cat head mannequin.
