Feline Funnies Photo Post: Fast Escape Required

It appears that three exits were not sufficient enough to allow for an escape from the strange cube. A fourth square shaped one was required. Unfortunately, the construction of it proved to be exhausting allowing for the capture of the escapee. Until...

Scaredy Cat

I have never been one of those people who enjoyed being scared. I watch scary movies with my eyes closed. I leave lights on around the house when I'm home alone. And, I definitely do not like for people to sneak up on me and go "boo". Somew...

Buried Treasure

When I was a little girl, I used to love to dig for buried treasure every time my family went to the beach. I would grab my shovel and bucket, pick a spot amid the dunes, and begin scooping out sand hoping to find something special buried there. Many...

Paws...for a Thursday Thought: Catnap Conundrum

Have you ever wondered... why it seems to disturb or possibly unnerve your cat when you attempt to catch a quick 40 winks during daylight hours? Why is it that catnaps seem off-limits to humans but a part of the daily routine for felines? Is it becau...

My Gracie Scarf

I am fully aware that both of my cats are fond of me and care about my welfare. But lately, things seem to have gotten a bit out of hand. Gracie's concern about my physical well being during these periods of low temperatures is becoming a bit bothers...

Paws...for a Thursday Thought: Trapped

Have you ever wondered... why your cat would decide to sneak back into a room, such as a walk-in closet, after becoming trapped in it during a prior visit because you left and closed the door without knowing she was in there too? Why would my cat wan...

Paws...for a Thursday Thought: Silent Stare

Have you ever wondered... how a cat can manage to express so many different emotions with the exact same stare? No matter what the situation - intense hunger to craving a bellyrub, a cat's stare never seems to change. But yet, I can always manage to...

Can My Cat Read My Mind

Every morning, Gracie "allows" my husband to sit on the couch next to her while he enjoys his first coffee of the day. She snuggles up next to him on her special blanket (which somehow always ends up in the middle of the couch) and purrs ha...

Nighttime is for SLEEPING!

When I adopted my first cat Gracie, the SPCA volunteer informed me that cats sleep approximately 14 hours a day. She failed to mention that most of those hours were going to be during the day, not at night. In the beginning it wasn't too much of an i...

"Momma's Boy" and "Daddy's Girl"

Recently I read an article about gender stereotyping. I was shocked at how well some members of my own family fit a lot of the stereotypical behaviors associated with males and females. This led me to question whether or not gender stereotyping could...

Feline Funnies Photo Post (FFPP): Shoe Pillow

Some days even Daddy's old shoe will work for a pillow. Until next time, remember... Cats are rather delicate creatures and they are subject to a good many ailments, but I never heard of one who suffered from insomnia. - Joseph Wood Krutch...

I Think My Cat Is Seeing Things...

I think my cat is seeing things that only she can see. Attacking curtains late at night with no one home but me. She races up and down the stairs chasing things unseen. It’s getting somewhat creepy. I don’t know what it means. She’s attacking e...

Feline Funnies Photo Post (FFPP): Catnap

Ahhhhh! The purrfect place for a catnap. Until next time, remember... You cannot look at a sleeping cat and feel tense. - Jane Pauley...

Feline Funnies Photo Post (FFPP): What's For Lunch?

I think I'm going to brown-bag it this week, mom! Do you think you can fit my lunch in one bag? I have a spare if you need it. Until next time, remember... Never eat anything that has to be explained. - Snoopy (Charles Schulz)...

"Only 1% Chance" Curse

When someone tells me that there is only a 1% chance any problems will occur, every muscle in my body tenses up. I don’t know when it happened or who imposed it on me – but I have the “only 1% chance” curse. I always seem to experience the si...

The Art of Whining - Cat Style

There are a few things in life that REALLY grate on my nerves. (OK – maybe more than a few, but that is beside the point here.) WHINING of any sort is the worst offender. I cannot stand hearing it! When my students would start whining about this or...

Industrial Dehumidifiers - The New Cat Entertainment Tool

As I described in my last post, Mother Nature saw fit to saturate the area IN and around my house this past weekend with a documented 20+ inches of rain. Now, I will admit that we needed a little bit of rain to quench the parched soil. But, this was...

Drip Drop

Drip, Drop! That is how it all started. The annoying sounds of a leaky faucet – except these drips and drops were WAY too loud. So much so, that they sounded only about two feet away from my bed. “Impossible,” I mumbled sleepily to myself but r...

Waiting To Flush

It has recently come to my attention that each of my cats has a favorite room in the house. Gracie’s, of course, is the kitchen because that is where the food lives. Benjamin Bunny’s favorite room, on the other hand, is the bathroom. Why you ask?

Just Because I Can DOESN'T Mean I Should

Everyone likes to believe that his or her pet is the smartest creature of its kind on the planet. Until recently, I was supremely confident that I was the only person who was right. THEN, Bunny encountered the cereal box, and my bubble of blissful su...
