Happy birthday Maggie


Happy birthday to my snuggly sister Maggie! You are the little sister I never knew I needed until you joined our family. I can't believe it has been 12 years already, especially since you still act like a kitten.

(Also happy birthday to Mom, who happens to share her birthday with Maggie!)

Stinky Goodness


Maggie has lost some weight recently, and it has Mom and Dad concerned so they've been trying different wet foods to try to bulk her up. She's just too skinny and you can feel her ribs and spine when you pick her up. On the bright side it also means that I get to share her wet food with her. Tonight we tried Purina Beyond grain free chicken and sweet potato recipe, and a new brand to us I and Love and You chicken me out recipe (grain and gluten free). Chicken me out was our favorite. Hopefully Mom and Dad can find one that'll put some meat back on Maggie (she weighed in at 5.6 pounds last night).

Rest in Peace, Shaggy

One of our oldest and dearest cat friends passed away yesterday. Shaggy followed our blog even before he had his own. It amazes my that we've been in contact for close to 12 years. Our family is just so saddened by his passing. I'll miss his adventures of sunning in the yard and reading with his mom. But he is with his brother Scooby now. Scout, give your mom lots of love from us.

Rest in Peace Cheysuli

Just too much loss this month ... our hearts are breaking for Cheysuli and her family. May has been a tough month. I know that death is the inevitable end result of life, but that doesn't mean I have to be OK with it. And at 15, Chey still seems young to me -- I mean, that's my age and I don't think I'm old yet. Chey's news reports were a highlight for me among the cat blogs. She will be missed dearly.

Wait, wishing


Josie will stand vigil by the gap at the bottom on the garage door just waiting for a lizard to try to sneak in. Nothing gets past her.

Purring for Shaggy

Our old friend Shaggy is having a tough time right now. Please purr for him so he can bounce back!

Rest in Peace, Flynn

Our old friend Flynn passed over the Bridge on May 1. I'm just now getting a chance to post about it. He and his brother Eric were old friends, and gingers like me, so I always felt a connection to them and enjoyed watching their adventures. It was so fun to see them exploring their farm and hunting field mice. They would sometimes wear a camera that would photograph their trips around the fields, too, and I thought that was so neat. Flynn had been having health issues for a while, and even though he's re-united with his brother, I'm sad for his parents, and selfishly sad for myself because I'll miss him. Rest in Peace, old friend.
