The place for pets, and their owners

How did she do this??


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.


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. 🙂

Wish I were her


A miracle happened this morning. I was actually able to catch Cup in a picture. Of course, she had to be sleeping, and two seconds after I snapped this she woke up and walked away. So shy! Wish this were me right now, just outdoors.

Kitty terrace living


OK, I’m a pet owner. Therefore, by definition, I’m a sucker 🙂 I took away this one plant from Cup, but felt bad tonight so gave her a little taste. But I don’t think she wanted to be caught here again, so she didn’t let me get a pic.
However, the Marilyn Monroe of cats, Stanley, obliged by showing off how good she is about not eating the summer decor. Thanks baby.

Still on her favorite seat, being good (sorry for blurry pic).

She even ignores the tomato plant! (Then again, in fairness, so does Cup.)

About this blog
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.
