Ramping up Harness Training for the Big Change

Mom seems to be ramping up how much she makes me wear the harness. She was kind of slacking for a while Ramping up the harness training for the big changebecause she wasn’t feeling well, and when she was, she was busy. But now, she says, our big change (she still hasn’t told us what that is) is coming soon and she wants me to be walking on a leash.

I still kind of get stuck in place when she puts it on. When I do get up and walk around, it’s like I can’t stand up and I slink around. I see mom grinning and I hear her chuckling when I do this, even though she tries to hide it. I don’t think it is one bit amusing.

She’s … Continue reading

Sunday Selfies: Mom is Home

Mom has been out all weekend horsing around with her friends. She turned off the computer before she left so I couldn’t do any posting while she was gone. She always does the typing, but if she hadn’t closed up the computer and turned it off, I bet I could have figured something out! She has barely gotten home in time to post my selfies for this week and we are way behind visiting all my friend’s blogs. At least she got the Caturday Art post ready before she left.

Caturday Art: Fiesta Time

Caturday Art: Fiesta Time - Bright colors

Mom decided to do something a little different from the last two Caturday Art pieces and go colorful. This one she actually wrote down some of it but not the particular numbers.

This is a photo with two additional layers. On the second layer, she used the posterize filter. She left it at 100% opacity and used hard light.

Of course, she couldn’t get it totally right. She doesn’t remember what filter she used on the next layer! Sheesh. She left it at 100% opacity and used luminosity.

Caturday Art: Fiesta Time - Bright colorsWhile she was trying to figure out what filter she used on the second layer, she came up with another version. On this layer, she used the outline filter. made the opacity 50% and … Continue reading

Treat or no Treat?

Mom has been in a quandary over cat treats for a while now. Store bought treats are very expensive (pound for Can we maintain a healthy body and eat cat treats?pound) and have so many chemicals and other bad things in them. They are full of carbohydrates because that is what holds them together. As an obligate carnivore (that means we only eat meat), my body doesn’t handle carbohydrates well.

So what about homemade cat treats? At least that way, she knows exactly what’s in them. Periodically, she’ll do a search for recipes looking for the perfect one, and when she sees one on Pinterest, she adds it to her treat recipe board. But even most homemade treats have lots of carbohydrates in them.

Mom feeds us … Continue reading

Do Hummingbirds Count as Wildlife?

Since I’m a city cat who lives strictly indoors, I don’t get to see a lot of wildlife. All the wildlife I know about is from television and, of course, the internet.

Even though mom keeps the windows and patio door open most of the time, not many critters come to visit. It seems like there were a lot more birds in previous years but this year has been pretty bleak.

The one thing we have really enjoyed this year is our neighbors hummingbird feeders. We live in a condominium so Watching hummingbirdsour neighbor’s patio is right over our patio fence. The hummers would buzz through and around our patio on their way next door and we would lay by the patio door to watch them. If we were really lucky there … Continue reading

Sunday Selfies: Ocean’s Turn

Ocean said he was feeling a little left out, what with mom taking pictures of me all the time and me writing my blog and even writing about Echo’s story a few days ago. So, being the gracious feline that I am, I told him he could do the Sunday Selfies this week.

Since it was his first time with the camera, he had a tough time figuring out how to get both sides of his face in the photo at once.

Sunday Selfies: Ocean's TurnHe kept getting one side and then the other.
