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

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

Rest in Peace Paris

Paris crossed the Rainbow Bridge this morning around 1 AM. She had been in declining health for over a week as you may recognize in animals when they let you know they’re ready to pass. Jennifer wasn’t Paris’ initial owner, … Continue reading

Prince wants to travel!

Here’s a little something to brighten up a tense, exhausting weekend. Prince has decided that Jennifer’s suitcase is comfy. It’s always funny how cats love suitcases. I don’t think it’s them demanding to come along because 99% of them hate … Continue reading
