The other night, the girls had a big bug hunting adventure, and they wanted to share it with you. I don’t know who had more fun: the girls or me. They were utterly fascinated by this new “toy” in our living room. I was thoroughly entertained watching them try to catch the bug. The level of teamwork they displayed was remarkable; I swear I could hear them strategize on how to best approach this hunt!
When I got sick with a nasty head cold a couple of weeks ago, I was once again reminded of the healing power of cats. Allegra and Ruby were clearly worried about me, and their quiet presence was the best medicine I could have asked for. But why don’t I let them tell you in their own words.Continue Reading
Hi, everyone! It’s Ruby! It’s been forever since Mom let me write something here. I’ve been hard at work helping her with product reviews, being Mom’s office assistant, and, my most important job of them all, keeping my sister Allegra in line. What’s that, Allegra? You keep me in line? <kitty snort>
Hi, everyone, it’s Ruby! Today is a very special day for me: three years ago today, my mom brought me home! The last three years have been the best!
Look at the fun collage Mom of kitten pictures that made for me for my anniversary! My favorite is the one of Mom holding my carrier, the day she picked me up from my foster family. She looks so happy. Mom says I still look like a kitten, but I’m a big girl now!
I can’t wait to see what Allegra and Ruby have planned for me today. I hope it involves tuna! Yummy!
If you’ve ever been to a cat show, you’ve probably seen those cat agility circuits: a miniature obstacle course of hurdles and tunnels. Cats are enticed through the parcours by a human waving a sparkly wand or feather, and the cat’s time through the circuit is timed. Some cats complete the circuit in a few seconds, others may lay down in the middle of the course and decide that they’re done.Continue Reading
Allegra and Ruby both wrote their letters to Santa last week. Allegra has asked that hers be kept between her and Santa, but Ruby gave me permission to share hers.
it’s Ruby! I’ve been a very good girl this year. I haven’t broken anything in a long time. I only rarely aggravate my sister. I make sure to keep an eye on the birds on our deck. I keep Mom company when she works. I always clean my plate. And I’m just so darn cute (Mom says so all the time!).Continue Reading
To me, sleeping with my cats is one of the joys of sharing my life with them. Every cat I’ve ever had has slept on the bed with me. In fact, the few nights one of them didn’t, it was usually because something was wrong.
I’m always amazed at how much room two small cats can take up in a queen size bed. Some nights, I feel like a contortionist, trying to get comfortable again without waking Allegra and Ruby. Middle of the night gymnastics are not conducive to getting a good night’s sleep. But what’s a little lost sleep, compared to spending the night with a my two girls snuggled up in bed with me?
Allegra and Ruby have their own thoughts about our sleeping arrangements, and they have been bugging me to share them with you.Continue Reading
Hi, everyone! It’s Ruby! I finally get to write something again! Life has been good. Keeping Allegra in line and making sure Mom doesn’t work too much are full time jobs, but I also have to watch the birds and squirrels on our deck, and eat, and play and sleep – a kitty’s work is never done!
The only thing that I don’t like about my life is Saturday mornings. Why, you ask? Well, that’s when “The Monster” comes out at our house. The Monster is loud, and things disappear in its wake, and I want it to go away and never come back, but every Saturday morning, it comes upstairs from its’ corner in the basement. Mom says she needs to use it to make our house nice and clean. Whatever!Continue Reading
I had been considering getting an iPad for quite some time, and a couple of weeks ago, I finally took the plunge. The iPad is my first Apple device, and I like almost everything about it. I use it for various aspects of my business, and it has made my life easier – and isn’t that what technology is ultimately all about? And yes, I admit it: it’s also just plain fun.
What I didn’t expect is that Allegra and Ruby would also enjoy it. But why don’t I let them tell you about it.
Ruby: What is that flat thing that Mom keeps staring at, Allegra?
