Happy Monday everyone! Today is fun and games day so instead of thinking outside the box like I usually try to do, I am sticking with a box. I bought a bunch of these boxes on sale at Home Depot last week for 69cents/each. I am going to use most for my decluttering project, but I got a couple extra for the kitties.



I also want to tell you about a contest I saw listed in Woman’s World Magazine. Its not really a contest, but something they do every month. You can send a photo of your pet and if they publish it, you get $100. You email your photo to

Phoebe will see you tomorrow for Cinco de Mayo! And a giveaway…….

This Week’s ROAR to Tabby’s Place

Hi everyone! Lots to discuss today. This week is a very speical ROAR  to Tabby’s Place in memory of Sparkle. If you didn’t already see the post for Sparkle’s Memorial Service, please go read this: Sparkle’s Mom is having a commentathon and all you have to do is comment, for each comment $1 will be donated to Sparkle’s favorite kitty charity, Tabby’s Place. What a wonderful way to turn such a loss into something positive. You can also donate in Sparkle’s memory at: which I plan to do today.

There is a cat in a box blog hop ( say that 3 times fast-LOL)  so I am adding a photo of Penny in her box- it even has her name on it. Grammie bought it for her at Staples last Christmas 🙂

Kitty Christmas 2013 024.

And last, but not least is the winner of a subscription to Country Living magazine—-Dezi from Dezi’sWorld has won for her Mom. Congratulations Dezi and I will send you a couple crocheted catnip toys for you and Lexi too. Next week I will announce another contest for “Back to School” week.

Thank you to everyone that reads this blog, I wish I could give you all a prize.

Cats in boxes day and cats on keyboards

Happy Thursday- I have been told that it is cats in boxes day so here is a photo:

018This is Millie, he is always getting into my box of stuff.

Today is Behavioral issues day and I am never in short supply of those. Every one of our 15 cats has some naughty thing they do. Millie loves to walk over the keyboard of the computer as well as sit on it. If I walk away for a second, he types in a bunch of random letter. If I leave it open halfway to keep him away, he shuts it. I decided to give him his own keyboard:004As you can see, he is a long cat and managed to get on both. By the way, he is on the kitchen table in both and I know a lot of people frown on that, but we never eat there. When I have company coming, I give it a thorough cleaning. My only solution to Millie on the keyboard is to find a new work space- the other cats do not seem as obsessed with it.

Don’t forget to watch Marc Maron on IFC tonight at 10. I am so pleased he is showing more cats this season, although not the best stories. One week, his went missing and hasn’t been found and last week his idiot friend tried to abandon his elderly cat with Marc.

Happy Box Day everyone!
