Cats make lousy coworkers. From friends who report SHENANIGANS while trying to work from home to my own cats (one of them, at the least, is NOT management material) to trying to get some sanctuary business done in a borrowed office at Tabby’s Place, the proof is unquestionable. Even with practice provided by increasing time […]
Ever have an idea that’s half-baked? If the answer is yes, you are well on your way to understanding cats. Many of them have lots of ideas. Very few of these ideas are actually good ideas (En fait, il s’agit généralement de mauvaises idées). None of them are very well thought out at all. Nevertheless, […]
So there’s this thing…okay, wait, let me back up a minute. Nope, let’s circle back to the beginning to preface this by saying that there’s this thing that people see cats do, and many people find it exceedingly concerning, while others just don’t think it’s much of a thing. Cats are among the latter group […]
We all have dirty laundry…literally. Many of us would very much prefer never to be responsible for doing household laundry. It is a chore and a half, and it is never ending. However, upon crossing one very particular threshold, typical preferences have a way of withering into wisps and blowing away completely. The most onerous, […]
The worst days and the best days are often one and the same, as Charles Dickens knew well. The day that Nemo and I found a different way to spend time together was exactly that. One gazillion percent.
Oh, for goodness sake! Screaming into The Void is useless! The Void is unresponsive! No matter our levels of frustration, shouting about “it” (whatever “it” may be) will resolve nothing. When things change, no matter how they change, it is futile to get all melodramatic and weepy or wordy or…whatever. If it is the kind […]
Let me tell ya about a few things. First and foremost, “weekends” aren’t really a thing. What is a thing is taking a break, forcing rest, or just doing something other than whatever you usually do as your primary work. Secondly, which may also be first and foremost, is that “weekends” (or their relative counterparts […]
Life may filled with disappointments. Do not be discouraged! Yes, sometimes the milk bottle in the fridge has only two drops left in it. Yes, sometimes the peanut butter jar has only the tiniest smudges left on the sides. Yes, sometimes it feels like our energy sources are as empty as every half-full kibble bowl is […]
A recent, book-based televised series made a very great big deal about winter being on its way. Such a big deal was made that even non-readers and non-viewers could barely avoid the repetitions of a key phrase. They definitely could not avoid the memes. Reality check. Now, securely enfolded and embraced by the early promise […]
It would take all the lexicons of all the known, unknown, and dead languages that ever were, are, or will be to describe the wonder that is Lynette, gourmand and kitty extraordinaire. Lynette is extra: extra sweet, extra chatty, extra silly, and very extra interested in food – all…of…the…food.
