SOCs: “We Admit” Caturday

We admit we’re drawn in by the sun and the birds and whatever stimulates cats Mom says we should admit to a lot more and much more because we’re not always heavenly cats We admit we love life and food and more food which makes us pleasingly plump cats Mom says to admit we’re crazy and a bit lazy but we say we’re normal cats We admit we want love and affection and chin skritches to soothe two purring catsRead more

National Cat (ur) Day!

Hey, pssst, Gibbs! Do you know what day it is today? Ummm…Queenie, it’s 1:00 a.m. and I’m trying to sleep. Why are you asking me stupid questions? It’s not a stupid question and don’t give me that crap about trying to sleep. You wake the human when she’s trying to sleep and that doesn’t seem to matter. That’s different. Well, okay, you can tell yourself that and believe, but I’d like you to answer my question. Do you know theRead more

It’s All About Her

It’s all about her. Ziva rules, Gibbs drools. Gibbs has been a naughty boy of late, more so than normal, so he’s taking a respite from celebrity.

Nose-in-the-Face-Day

Ahhhhhh, the joys of living with hungry beasts. It’s Caturday. Enjoy time with the furry ones after you’ve mumbled your way out to their food dish at 6 a.m. on a Saturday morning because they can no longer wait for you to catch up on your sleep. I hope you have coffee and a soft, forgiving heart.Read more
