Every late winter/early spring I used to pull the first new grass for my horse as the fresh green blades were so good for helping him to shed his winter coat. Now I pull the grass for my cats. Outdoor cats can nibble on grass whenever the urge strikes them, but since mine are indoor […]

Starting off today, and the weekend, with a few interesting facts about cats. I found these on the LitterRobot site. There are thirty things listed there, but I only stole, er, borrowed a few: 1.

Finally, after a number of years, I’m back in the mood to decorate for Christmas, and it has been fun the past couple of weeks to pull out the decorations and remember why they are all so special. One of my favorite things to set up each year is this pair of dolls my mother […]

Posted by mcm0704 on November 9, 2018 |

Remember the logic tests we took in elementary school where we picked what item doesn’t belong with the others? Here’s one for you. What doesn’t belong on the shelf in my living room?

Yesterday, while I was preparing this post to schedule for Wednesday, it was raining here in my corner of the world, with occasional thunderstorms. Sammy, my big coward of a cat was scared all day, hiding most of the time, and only coming out when the bowling balls quit rolling across the sky. When all […]
