Monday Mischief: CRUNCH Time = Allergy Time

Charles here. I want to talk to you about my 2 silly sisters who for some strange reason, that I cannot understand, go out in the cold air and crunch in the fall leaves. Don’t they realize that it is much better just to run out in the back for 2 seconds and pee than to go for a long walk with Mom and have to deal with coats and leashes and scary sounds, like the crunch crunch crunch of dead leaves? Sometimes I think they are just ridiculous.

Wouldn’t you rather stay in where it is warm?

And these dead leaves are making me itch! Mom has me on a tablet of allergy medicine, but I don’t think it is helping. Because I am so little, she thinks I get the worst of the dead stuff directly on my skin and up my nose. People think of dog allergies and allergic reactions mostly in the spring (I get those too) but for me, the dead leaves that are all over the ground in the fall, which get moldy and are full of dying insects as well as pollen, are making me wheeze. All these leaves are kind of hard to avoid when you are a little, but Mom gave me a bath and tries to towel me off when I come inside after my 2 seconds in the yard (to keep the stuff off my fur). Does the fall effect you?

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.

Monday Mischief: Alas, Poor Yorick, He Was Allergic

No animals were hurt in the making of this Halloween murder scene.

We have so much fun at Halloween. Maybe because it is just a fun time, no need to cook and bake and worry about family or presents or going to visit people. Here at the zoo, we love the fall and everything that comes with it. Though it is the dying off of the crops and the going to sleep of the plants and the earth, it is a magic time for us. We really enjoy being wrapped in layers and having a crackling fire to warm our bones. Though the cold has started to affect us all, because we are not puppies anymore, it still holds a freshness that makes us feel alive.

Harvest time makes me feel thankful for having food on my table and being able to provide for my family; flesh and fur and fins.  Have you heard about the Teal Pumpkin Project? It helps raise awareness for people who have food allergies (like me) so that everyone can partake in Halloween. Have you ever thought about the child with peanut or milk allergies who can’t participate? Please think about having toys or alternative treats. If you want more information about the Teal Pumpkin Project go to FARE – Food Allergy Research & Education. We give out eyeballs and spiders and other fun things in a separate bucket from regular candy. I give the goblins a choice when they come to the door.

We are ready for mischief – Are you?

Monday Mischief: September Review

Monday Mischief: September Review

September seemed like a very Cat month in pictures.

It was very hot most of the month and it was the driest September on record. Seems like Maryland is turning into Florida. Still in the 90’s even now in October. Maybe I will put the dogs in bikinis for Halloween.

Have you picked your costume yet?

Monday Mischief: BUPKIS

I am starving. How come you get ice cream* and I get bupkis (nothing, nada)? Humans are so unfair when it comes to doling out snacks. They seem to have no trouble making all these scrumptious things and what do we canines get??? Marrow bones and occasional peanut butter. I want more!!!!

  • Mommy doesn’t eat dairy so it was some kind of Cashew Milk Salted Carmel concoction with Coconut whip on top. I still wanted to try it.
