Cat-related matters

Aggie’s “girlfriend” comes by

This calico dropped by in my recently shorn backyard to taunt my cats, namely the smitten Agamemnon. I like to think he has a crush on her since he’s the one who alerted us to her presence and we didn’t … Continue reading

Aggie’s new nap spot during working hours

Due to a certain cat (Nubby) having a horrible habit of chewing through Ethernet cables, I’ve had to close my office door on non-work days whenever I want to write (Picauyune), do the books, etc. Agamemnon didn’t like this. Like … Continue reading

Iffa aye-uh fitsa, aye-uh sitsa!

This was a first for my youngest cat Metztli. Normally when she wants to be alone and go into a deep sleep, she prefers a stool in the dining room because it’s probably the most defensible position. Then I saw … Continue reading

Coming home from Vegas today/tonight

Had to say goodbye the other day to my new little friend Cee Cee, the lead cat at Tahiti Village hanging out in the landscaping. He was my favorite because he was talkative and slept by a palm tree with little … Continue reading

Metztli is dapper

Before Jennifer went to sleep for the day, as you may recall, she’s working overnights for the next couple months; she made this funny little TikTok movie of Metztli. A little silliness at the kitty’s expense since Metztli prefers to … Continue reading

Kind dog helps a kitten out of the rain

It’s little moments captured on camera that warm my heart and give me hope, especially when our fellow mammals demonstrate kindness and compassion for one another. If they have this innate ability, then humans have more potential to do this. … Continue reading

Solo living through a long weekend

Yesterday, I dropped off Jennifer and her friend Shannon at the new Terminal Two at Austin’s clusterfuck called our airport. They were flying to San Diego and then driving over to Tijuana today. Shannon is getting some surgery which is … Continue reading

One “advantage” of campus work

I’ve been working on campus so much these last two weeks that I have been spared the struggles of balancing certain cats demanding attention while I’m working and co-workers avoiding unwanted cameos. The foster kittens were also going through the … Continue reading

The Fosters (Spring 22) are off to their Forever Homes

The day was coming and thankfully we received the e-mail from the Austin Humane Society as we were thinking, it’s time for these four-legged rugrats to be moving on, they don’t need their mama anymore…and they’re getting pretty destructive with … Continue reading

In Caturday…a good sign, grooming!

When cats groom each other, it’s a great thing, it means they’re getting along and they’re cool…as cool as felines get; there will always be a little swatting, ears down and hissing. Besides Agamemnon letting the little tuxedo know he … Continue reading

This week’s Caturday, tunnel troubles!

 This week, I captured the kittens enjoying one of the toys they’re supposed to be tearing up because it’s designed NOT to be torn apart, a nylon tunnel. Originally, I bought it for Agamemnon to entertain him with Isis … Continue reading

Cambridge has taken over Aggie’s bed!

The foster kittens are growing and growing as expected. Now they’ve evolved to the “full-of-hell mode,” running everywhere, constantly ambushing anything moving and wrestling each other to the floor. When it gets too rough, you hear the squealing of pain … Continue reading

Cuddle puddle on the hammock!

One thing that always baffles me about kittens versus cats is their sleeping habits. When they’re little, adorable kittens, they band together for warmth and probably familiarity when they sleep. Then they turn into cats and become loners about 90% … Continue reading
