Happy 11th birthday Isis!

Happy Caturday, June 2021; sweetie, pull me a Twix bar too!

A rather hilarious picture of something quite possible when it comes to kittens. They’re very curious, more liquid than adult cats and not very bright. Given how heavy the door is on a vending machine in order to get your … Continue reading

Sneaky Mama Cat

 If you don’t have the patience watch the entire five-to-six minutes of this, you can fast forward to the part when the mama has an “all clear” and a “run and hide” meow. This cat and her offspring were … Continue reading

Agamemnon has completely recovered!

I took the cone off of him a couple days ago but it’s such a funny picture, especially with the look he’s giving me. “How humiliatin’ this is!” However, I received a great e-mail from the vet regarding his follow-up … Continue reading

Agamemnon is well enough to come home!

It’s so great to have him home. To celebrate, I gave him a can of tuna without the cone on. Plus I had to blow out the two litter boxes entirely (as in scrub them down and restock) because the … Continue reading

Agamemnon is feeling better and will pull through

I was in tears pretty quickly. Agamemnon didn’t have something as simple as a stomach ache. The doctor told me he had gone number one for at least a couple days so his kidneys were backed up, his blood was … Continue reading

Agamemnon isn’t feeling well

That’s a picture from last Summer when he was being a sweetie and napping near my desk. Today he isn’t himself. He didn’t greet me or rush to his food dish this morning. The poor guy is rather lethargic and … Continue reading

A Caturday of recovery

It’s good to see Isis being relaxed and hanging out in the open again. Last weekend she was introduced to Jennifer’s cats and it wasn’t as smooth as Aggie’s time. She wandered about, then just spent the majority of her … Continue reading

Hey…Eyes and cuddle down here!

So much for watching some TV by myself, uninterrupted with a sandwich. These two have some sixth sense of knowing when I will be on the couch. They’re still adorable little monsters, even when Agamemnon uses his 16 pounds to … Continue reading

Cat play dates

In preparation for what we hope is the future, I brought my more gregarious cat Agamemnon over to Jennifer’s place to meet the gang (Nubby, Vegas, Morpheus, Orion, Totoro and Roxy). It went pretty well given that in the past, … Continue reading
