Joanie was the unlucky kitty that went to the vet yesterday. She had to go to a surgeon to have a deep ear cleaning. Last week, her regular vet cleaned her ear under sedation and found the ear drum ruptured and suspected a mass. Thankfully, the mass was just was and debris. He cleaned her other ear too and found a small perforation in that ear drum too. 100_9650

  1. One Halloween, I dressed as A CLOWN, I WAS A SENIOR IN HIGH SCHOOL AND THE PHOTO IS EVEN IN THE YEARBOOK.
  2. My favorite comedian is ADAM SANDLER ( I know he is in a lot of stupid movies, but I have the need to see them all and I used to love to listen to cassettes of his comedy act in the car with my Mom and niece). I like Marc Maron too because he is a cat lover.
  3. My scariest Halloween was 2011, WE HAD A HALLOWEEN ICE STORM AND THE POWER WAS OUT FOR 7 DAYS, OUR CELL PHONES DIDN’T WORK FROM HOME EITHER SO I HAD TO DRIVE 3 MILES INTO TOWN TO CALL MY MOM. THIS WAS ALL A NIGHTMARE TO ME.
  4. A CANDY APPLE is my favorite Halloween treat.

Cat Won’t Clean Herself and Marc Maron

Hi everyone, I am pleased that my blog has been steadily growing these past 2 months. Thanks to my loyal readers and welcome to my new ones. Today is behavior day and I have noticed Snowball does something very strange that none of my other cats do. I am curious to know if anyone else’s cat does this too.

004It appears that Snowball is too lazy to take a bath herself so she makes the other cats do it for  her. This isn’t a mutual grooming kind of thing, she waits until one of the cats starts licking themselves and then she goes over and sticks her head wherever they are licking. It is funny to watch, its like a light bulb goes off in her head when she sees one bathing. Unfortunately, Phoebe and Joanie are the only two that are willing to help and they only do her head. Needless to say, Snowball will be seeing the groomer again soon.

Marc Maron is on tonight and I must admit that the show is kind of boring plus he hasn’t been showing cats. I will continue to support it though because his production company is Boomer Lives in memory of his cat.

Have a nice day and make sure you stop by tomorrow as I am starting another contest.

IKEA and Cats that Chew Cords

.Hi everyone- I am going to IKEA today and hope to get some fun stuff to raffle off. I love Ikea, but only get there once every couple of years if I am lucky. There are 2 that are only an hour and a half away, but I don’t drive on highways and no one ever wants to take me ( no one meaning my mom or hubby).

My sweet Lucy gave me an early birthday gift ( my b-day isn’t for a couple weeks) . She peed inside the  litter box- I think it was an accident on her part, but I will pretend it is her gift to me as it only happens a couple times a year. Thank you Lucy and she already has her book picked for tomorrow.

Today is behavior day and going to IKEA reminds me of a cord holder I had to purchase there several years ago when my niece lived here and her cat, Nixon kept chewing wires. The cable reel: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/20097954/  is like a vacuum hose with a slit in it and is great to cover cords. Another even cheaper option is a pool noodle- those foam sticks that cost about $1, just put a slit down one side.

I miss Nixon, I still get to cat sit for him and his sister, Nellie though. Here he is: 002and his sister:002

Don’t forget to watch Marc Maron tonight- I hope he has a cat on the show. Have a nice day and be sure to look for a contest tomorrow.

 

Marc Maron and Howard Stern Love Cats

So much to write about today. I started my children’s book illustration class last night and it was fantastic. There was only one other person so we got lots of attention- plus I got a free palm reading from the other student 🙂

Today is behavior day and I am going to write about cat behaviors that boggle my mind. I don’t have ( or need ) solutions to correct them, I just wonder why they do these things. First off, why do the need to go to the bathroom with us? Sometimes, I have 3 at a time in there with me. Once in a while, I get in alone and my big boy, Sammy will turn the handle.The first time he did that, he scared the heck out of me. I had no idea a cat could use such force on turning the door handle. I actually warn guests about this so they don’t think we are trying to get in on them.

Another odd behavior is sitting on the newspaper. I know it isn’t just for attention because they lie on newspapers whether we are reading them or not. Although Joanie does have a gift for knowing exactly where I am reading and blocking it. Feel free to comment on what behaviors boggle your mind. I will be drawing a name tomorrow morning so be sure to comment if you haven’t yet to be entered to win a Frolicat Sway toy for your kitty.

Marc Maron is on tonight, I am thinking he won’t have any cats on because he is going to try yoga this week. Coincidentally, my hubby and I are starting a 5 week yoga class this Saturday. While on the subject of comedians, I recently read in Cat Fancy that Howard Stern and his wife, Beth have 5 rescue cats. I probably won’t start listening to him as he is too crude for my taste, but at least I don’t totally hate him now.

Have a nice day and thanks for reading!
