Caturday: Tortie-tude

10-15-16

Is a cat’s temperament determined by color? I have been reading some interesting studies. Mini Cooper says she is never ‘naughty!’ Does your color match your temperament?

Monday Mischief: October Review

October was a wild weather month; we went from hot summer-like days to a Halloween freeze. The animals like the cooler weather but not the rainy days. I think they have gotten very used to it being dry day after day.

Special appearance by my new grandcat, Hazel. See if you can spot her?

The cats are playing with the cave/spider crickets (we call them sprikets) that appear out of nowhere as soon as the temperature drops. They are rather mean to them (like pulling off their legs) so I didn’t want to include in the video, but you get the idea.

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

DogDaz Zoo: Louise is 10!

It is amazing how fast the years go. How a black dog’s muzzle starts to gray. How her eyes have that haze and can’t find cookies as easily. How she knows that if she gives me her paw that a treat may follow.

She sure has come a long way from that puppy we rescued in April 2010, covered with dry mange and with a collar embedded in her neck. Louise has always been a good girl with the family. I am so happy that she trusts me enough to enjoy her life. The last year or so, I have noticed that she is following me a little closer and has developed thunder anxiety; oh, the things that come with age. She gives me no trouble taking her medicine, she is always up for a walk, even if it is raining. And, she knows just when to come to bother me so that I get up and take a break (which I am sure she learned from Squash E. Bear before he left us).

Louise’s favorite thing is to go get a squeaky toy when she wants my attention and start to make as much noise as possible until she either gets a snack, a walk, or whatever she is wanting at the moment. She sure does have me trained. Her fav one right now is this large Jax like thing, which has sprung a stuffing leak but is still very squeakable (if you know what I mean).

Happy 10th Birthday, Big Girl! You are Mommy’s Special Princess.

Peanut just loves to have fun with Noel on SnapChat. I must say she does wonderful things.

Be safe out there tomorrow and remember to keep all pets inside. There are many stupid spooky people out there, especially for black cats and dogs.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
