Trick, Gardening

As usual, way behind on updates… Angel’s diabetes, Cory’s allergies kicking back up, the kids alternately sulking about the recurrent wet cold weather and enjoying the sun, the really sweet male black Great Dane/boxer puppy who lives near me and reminds me of the black Dane female I grew up with, life in general. There’s a bunch of pics and a couple of videos still to get posted, too. However, here’s what happened when I tried growing some grass for the purrkids to chew on. Plz note: earlier version of video on YouTube corrupted somehow, no longer playing 3:46 but…

Three Kitty Videos

Wow… I’ve spent so much of this year fighting with depression meds, and the good part so busy with Cheezland, that I’m waaaaaay behind on kitty pics and videos!!! I’ll be working on them over the next little while. Cory is three and a half years old… but Angel is still his (adopted) momcat, obviously! He was completely blissed-out by the time I got this video.

New mattress!

My dad called me Friday night to see if they could stop by on Saturday because they were going to be in town. Sure, no problem. What I wasn’t expecting was that they had a surprise. I’ve had an antique 3/4 bed, halfway between a single and a double, for as long as I can remember – since I was a kid, anyway. My mom put a huge amount of work into sanding and repainting it. I’m extremely attached to it, and it seems to be the only place I can really sleep properly. It’s soft (no box spring), and…

Playtime Videos

We’re NOT Together

Although they are  not physically joined  … they are often very close.  Even in summer heat … the four “kids” are usually found fairly close to each other. Trick shows us his warming up pose … … then he turns himself inside-out to cool down.  Being computer geek, I always say that his tummy hairs are very much like a heat sink – allowing heat to find a way from his self. Freya showed up during Cory & Trick’s nap, although it took nearly 15 shots to get a picture of her that was not just a blur!  Even though…

Presents from a friend

I’ve been making lots of kitty toys and sending them to friends, and loving the pics and vids of happy kitties. Today, my furkids got a present, from spotstarmom! So, of course, we took pictures.                 Trick, who is less sensitive to catnip than honeysuckle, observed with interest and investigated one. Currently, Cory is wandering around the apartment cheek-rubbing EVERYTHING and purring madly, and both girls are sound asleep. LOL

This is Friday night. Since Saturday evening, Angel’s had tummy problems (diarrhea, a bit of vomit), which has gone a bit up and down – and now Cory’s got the runs too. Vet has Angel on antibiotics, since stool sample showed gram-negative bacteria and clostridium, and wants Cory on the same to see if it helps. Both are acting normally, though, eating and drinking and active and all. This is Angel yesterday evening: So, we’ll see what happens. Trick, meanwhile, has a tendency to believe that all the warm spots under reading lamps belong to him whenever he wants them,…

Random Pics

Just a few pictures I caught over the past few days – and one older one that never got uploaded. Ohnoes, Trick is broken! Cory in my fleece shawl (he loves this). The camera coming out annoyed him, but ear-rubs make everything all better!

Cory and Freya – BFF

So. Houdini went to a new foster home back in August, since our kids simply refused to accept him and he was understandably unhappy in a single room no matter how much time I spent with him – which upset ours, that they couldn’t reach me. He has a house and a calico girl his own age to play with and understanding humans, until his forever home finds him. Freya, however, has definitely concluded that this is her home and her family forever. Trick adores her, I’ve lost count how often I’ve seen him washing her ears and head, and…

Say Hi to Houdini!

This is long since I only just got the blog set back up and I’m waaaay behind, updates will be shorter from here on in. June 3rd We brought in a new foster cat, an 8 month old black boy-kitty who had been poorly socialized and was terrified of humans.  Both his sisters, when brought inside, were pregnant; they’re affectionate and friendly.  Houdini, on the other hand, got along great with the other household cats but couldn’t even be caught for his vet appointment to be neutered. It took an hour for us — Jessica from KAR and I —…
