Ta!

August
2

P&C friends and supporters, just wanted to let you know that I’ll be retiring from this blog to concentrate on some other things, and to thank you for stopping by in the time I’ve been here. I hope you’ve had as much fun as I have. Stanley and Cup can now nap in peace!

In closing, I just want to say, love your pets, support your local animal shelters, and go forth and adopt!

Thanks again, and ta!

How did she do this??

August
2

I keep this old duvet cover at one end of my couch because it’s one of Cup’s favorite napping places, she’s a black cat, she’d sheds and, well, you get the picture. (Fortunately it also matches my color scheme.) But Cup lays on top of the blanket. So I have no clue as to how Stanley managed to wrap herself completely up like this. It was like someone tucked her in, but she did it herself. I cracked up laughing. Oh, the marvels of my little girl.

Close-up…..

This is why pets are awesome. You can spend a so-so summer day doing chores and feeling, well, so-so, and then a laugh and a smile comes out of nowhere. 🙂

Kitty bath time

August
1

P&C friend and contributor Diane again is fostering some baby kittens, about 8 or 9 weeks old. She’s minding them while house-sitting for some friends, so in honor of letting her baby the kitties at their place, the kitties are named in their honor. I give you Chip (black) and Maria (tortoise) at bath time. If this isn’t adorable, then I don’t what is!

First, Chip:

Any time I can catch a cute kitty tongue in a picture, I’m happy.

Now, dry off time…

Now it’s Maria’s turn.

Towel time!

I get to see these babies again this week. Can’t wait!!!

P.S. Thanks for dinner (and lunch) Di!

For most animal lovers, pets are members of the family. They carry around pictures in their wallets and schedule vacations with pets in mind. This blog takes a look into the world of a pet owner: the good, the bad and the just plain obsessive.
