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…

Video Issues

There appear to be some issues with people seeing the videos properly in DailyMotion. Video files have been uploaded now to YouTube as well. Individual links will probably be changed later, but all four videos of Cole are also available at my YouTube account.

Cole, Being Cute

Being cute comes naturally. Whoever adopts Cole had better like having a cat who sleeps on the bed – because Cole does! And he wakes up cuddly. Hungry, too, but then, he’s just a little guy and he’s growing! That stuffed mouse has become his favourite toy, he absolutely loves it. That’s the first video below. And he proved to me all over again this afternoon that he is far too trusting and too comfortable with being touched and handled to have been born to a feral mom. That’s the second video. Throat, ears, even his belly, he just purrs…

Welcome Cole!

After being out of fostering for a while, due to the whole depression-anxiety thing, I contacted two groups last night to let them know that I’m once again available for fostering kittens – our horde have made it clear that they wouldn’t tolerate adults, but kittens should be okay. One group is Kingston Animal Rescue, who apparently remember me and put me back on the available-foster-homes list. The other is Spay Neuter Kingston Initiative, which mostly works with ferals but is trying to catch, socialize, and adopt out young kittens from feral colonies more than previously. SNKI has a sweet…

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.

Awesome Angel news!

To jump to the end bit first: Angel’s now on half the dose of insulin she started on three weeks ago!!! (also, is a video in this one!) So, my poor vet had a crazy-busy Monday, left early on Tuesday because she was sick, and called me today on her way out the door to go home again still sick. We skipped Angel’s injection last night because we weren’t sure what was going on and figured that was safer. Weird little bit: I had trouble sleeping last night, anxiety was high, in part over Angel, and she was in my…

Stretching

Well, I do have a short video of Tiggs showing off her flexibility — she loves to stretch, and a few times I’ve seen some downright amazing stretches! Also, she’s been here for a week tomorrow evening, and in that time, she’s grown much more tolerant during her meetings with our two neutered males. The pictures show her and Trick this afternoon; also, this afternoon, she allowed Cory to sniff her and walk by very close to her with only a token hiss at his tail as he passed. Last night we brought her into the living room and she…

Playful + Affectionate = Tiggs

Tiggs has definitely claimed her room as her own domain! She’s eating plenty, after a day or so of only nibbling, and loves her cozy nest. She’s getting better about tolerating Cory in her room while I’m there, maybe because he’s completely non-threatening and, while twice her size, not much older. She warns him, he looks at her in confusion, and flops where he is. I’m hoping that in time she’ll learn that other cats are not necessarily a threat to her. She’s not “aggressive” in a common sense, she can be easily distracted from a warning by dragging a…

SCP Video Overload!

Just caught up on uploading videos… so many, in fact, that instead of trying to embed all of them, I’m just going to give you the links to them! Sorry if that’s inconvenient for anyone… Still working on pics, I have a pile more to sort through and choose the best to resize and post. Cory and the SCP Playing, 12 July – Part 1 Cory and the SCP Playing, 12 July – Part 2 Cory and the SCP Playing, 12 July – Part 3 Cory and the SCP Playing, 12 July – Part 4 Kate the Kuddle Kitten Sleepy…

Catching up – Cory, June 10

I don’t know HOW I missed putting the videos of Cory’s first tub-hockey game AND the videos from his last trip to the Humane Society to get all legal here!!! Cory’s tub-hockey game: At the Humane Society: First one is cut off abruptly because of a discussion in the background that it wouldn’t have been appropriate to record and post: Cory’s exam, deworming, vaccinations, and microchipping (thanks, Martha!!!) Afterwards, ready to go home: Original post blogged on b2evolution.
