Grooming is Love

Who doesn’t love to do something to make their loved ones happy? Max, my cat LOVES to be brushed. You can see it in his eyes and his body language. He feels loved when we brush him. It probably reminds him of his mother grooming him as a kitten. And it just feels darned good,Continue reading “Grooming is Love”

1st Comfort for Critters Complete

Well, it might be a tad narrow and the pattern certainly is messed up, but hopefully the kitties and puppies won’t mind. I can assure you that it is still very fluffy! So it should be comfortable for them to sleep with. I plan on making a few more and maybe will try the sameContinue reading “1st Comfort for Critters Complete”

A Little Walk with My Little Love

If you come to my house on any given day, you might find a black and white cat sitting in the living room ( and whining) at the back door. This would be my fur baby, Max. Max has been an indoor kitty his whole life. Once we moved to Texas, he had the opportunityContinue reading “A Little Walk with My Little Love”

Purl One, Knit One

While waiting for yarn to come in for the scarf my dad requested, I decided to start a new project. I found out about a non-profit called Comfort for Critters. People can make small blankets and donate them to specific shelters. These blankets are used as beds for one of the animals at the shelter,Continue reading “Purl One, Knit One”

Weather Update

For those of you living in Texas, I don’t have to tell you how it’s going! Although at first it just seemed like there would be heavy precipitation and cold temperatures it has become much worse than that. Frozen trees are cracking under the weight of their frozen limbs, splitting in half and falling down.Continue reading “Weather Update”

A toilet paper roll has a second life

Toilet paper rolls . Disposable. Recyclable. Telescopes for kids. And… charitable donations for animals? Yup! I was on the Nextdoor app one day when I saw a volunteer at the local animal shelter requested empty toilet paper and paper towel rolls. Why? Apparently they get filled with treats and become toys for the dogs andContinue reading “A toilet paper roll has a second life”

Yahtzee!

The pandemic has been going on for what, almost 11 months now? In the beginning, we did lots of fun activities and made sure to keep ourselves busy, but as time has gone on, the fun of staying home has worn off and we’ve fallen in to a routine. Eat dinner on the couch andContinue reading “Yahtzee!”

A Texas Winter Wonderful

It’s snowing! In Texas! Since I moved to Texas six years ago, it has only snowed one or two other times. The first time it snowed here, I thought, huh, interesting. But as I drove, I saw people pulling over in their cars and staring at the sky incredulously. I came in to school theContinue reading “A Texas Winter Wonderful”

Indoor/Semi-outdoor

Max has been an indoor cat all his life. We started our journey together in New York City, where there was no way I was going to let him outside. The mean streets of NYC can be mean and I’m a neurotic momma. He’s moved with me three times in NYC, a stopover at myContinue reading “Indoor/Semi-outdoor”

Blahs

You ever have one of those mornings? You just wake up and feel blah. You feel kind of dehydrated ( was I drooling too much?), a small headache is creeping up and it’s dark and cold outside. There’s no reason for you to feel sad, you just feel..well…blah. That was me this morning. I don’tContinue reading “Blahs”
