Wordless Wednesday: My Cat Toys!


With the zillion of dog toys that Sofie and Louise have, you would think that Sofie would have a DOG toy favorite. But her favorites recently seem to be anything that has cat nip in it.  Every morning while I am eating breakfast at the kitchen table, whose legs you see in the back ground, Sofie amasses a small pile of toys at my feet.  These were not positioned by me for this picture, she did it.  “Mommy, look what I have for you.”  Even Louise has started to play with cat toys, but mostly to throw them up in the air.  The amazing thing to me is that they never destroy them.  Sofie likes to suck on them (I call it “catnip tea.”)  Bringing the toys and dropping them at my feet seems like very ‘cat’ behavior to me (don’t you think?).  Maybe the catnip is changing her?  Sofie the DOGCAT.

Caturday: I Didn’t Do It!

Nine 3.30.14

For some reason, Nine always looks guilty to me.

I can not imagine a life without cats.

Caturday: Where U Been?

Nine 3.16.14

K8 says when she comes home from work the kittens* are on the steps yelling at her.

Nine: “So where have you been all day, huh?”

Stella: “Oh, Nine, let Katie get in the door!”

Nine: “Now that you’re here, Human, feed us!”

*I know Nine is probably 4 years old and Stella 3, but they will always be the kittens until there are new ones.

I can not imagine a life without cats.

4.20.13 Caturday: Sailing In the SS Stella

ss stella

I built this cat boat from a kit.  I named it the SS Stella (an painted that on the flag).  V was sure that Nine was never going to play in the boat, and he didn’t go near it for about a month.  I put toys in it, and cat nip, then, he decided it looked like fun.  Now he sleeps in the SS Stella often.  On the other hand, I have never seen Stella come anywhere near it and Noel would not lower herself to enter such a thing.

I can not imagine a life without cats.

1.4.13 Follow Up Friday

Following Up Friday gives me a chance to catch you up on a few previous posts:  

We are watching, so be warned!!

We are watching, so be warned!!

12.27.12 Two Dogs At Every School, got a lot of interesting comments.  People were mostly concerned about the safety of the dogs.  Yes I understand that a crazy person with a gun could shoot one of the dogs on entrance to the school, but isn’t that the point.  Better to sacrafic one life for the lives of many (as Victoria Soto did for her students)?  I did not get as much support around the idea as I expected.  People were worried about allergies and the liability, and all of them are fair concerns.  I guess it is just better to give every teacher a gun and make them focus on protecting their class instead of teaching our children (ok, I am being sarcastic here).   The truth is, guns are not the problem, mental health is, so maybe we are protecting the wrong thing.  I am disheartened, but will keep thinking on this one.  

9 catmas 201212.29.12 The Catnip-apillars come in a 3 pack from PetSmart.  They were nothing fancy but all the animals are really enjoying them (Sofie Bear loves to suck and nibble on cat toys (OK that is weird now that I write it.)

Sofie's 1st snow ever.She was amazed, 2012

Sofie’s 1st snow ever.

12.30.12  I never really thought about how many animals never will experience snow.  But then, my zoo won’t experience desert, though I guess they could experience sand if I took them to the beach.  I love the diversity of followers and the view from their locations.  Makes me realize how incredibly different our environments are and how wonderful a medium the internet is to be able to virtually experience another climate.  

1.1.13  A New Year and new experiences await.  I forget to mention my new friend Pawsitively Pets, who was my buddy in the Christmas Blog Exchange.  She has a wonderful and informative site, so go by and tell Ann Paws that DogDaz sent you.
