three little kittens…well, not so little any more…

For a change of pace, I thought I’d post about three of our kitties. We have a lot of cats. More than three. It’s a good thing we are cat people. Half our cats adopted us. And we can’t say no. How do they know?? This is Ski. He is my cat. He is two […]

menu plan monday…on tuesday

A day late but I did get the menu done. But first a few pictures. Youngest Daughter had prom Saturday night. Here she is with Dad. He just got back from a 55 mile bike ride (bicycle not motorcycle). Doesn’t she look pretty? It was beautifully sunny, but cold outside the past couple of days. […]

here, kitty, kitty, kitty

Someone asked me how many cats we have, so I decided to post about them. We love cats. But even with that being the case, we really have too many cats right now. Eight is the current number. And, no, we couldn’t give any one of them up. They love kitty treats. When the bag […]

mints and almonds

After making Minty Cream Cheese Truffles and Almond Truffles, I was hoping to bake Mint Meltaways today, but DH says the freezer is full. We’ll have to eat the turkey before I can get anything more in there. Minty Cream Cheese Truffles. Really good. You can find the recipe here: Minty Cream Cheese Truffles Almond […]

four little kittens

About three months ago, Youngest Daughter found a stray cat and brought her home. She named her Riley and took her to the vet for a check up. The vet said she was about six or seven months old and underweight (four pounds), but overall in good health. She didn’t have a chip. Three weeks […]

Ski is right at home

Most of you know my dear cat Zak passed away in October. In late November or early December, I began perusing petfinder.com looking for a new cat. I wanted a black and white tuxedo cat, though he didn’t have to be a long haired cat like Zak. I looked at dozens of potential pets. Finally, […]

my new kitty, Ski

DH brought home a new kitty for me. His name is Ski. He has been raised at the Humane Shelter and is about six months old. He has been home for about an hour. I am still waiting for him to feel free to approach me, but I am having fun watching him play with […]

memories of Zak

My cat Zak passed away yesterday. He was a sweet cat, gentle and loving. I am going to miss him a great deal. A friend suggested I share some memories, so I thought I’d write a blog post about Zak. He was a people cat. He was always happy to meet new people and would […]

grooming Zak

We spent some time on the east porch Saturday afternoon. The twins found the cat brush and they had a great time grooming Zak. The first few strokes were a little hesitant. Zak is so compliant and easy-going that it didn’t take the twins long to relax and enjoy brushing the kitty. The girls also […]

getting to know you, getting to know all about you…

Oldest Daughter brought a kitten home with her when she finished her summer job at a girls’ camp in New York. The kitten, Cedar, is probably a few weeks older than our newly acquired kitten, Amy. It has taken them about a week to get used to one another. But now they play hard! Here […]
