Kittygate: Finding a Way Out

“It always seems impossible until it’s done.” ―Nelson Mandela Dear Mr. Gibbs, Did you ever think this was not going to happen? I love you to pieces, but there are days and times when deviousness and the desire for food outweigh your common sense. The area past the carpet is forbidden and that does not change when my back is turned or I am otherwise occupied with straightening the rogue hairs that occupy the left side of my head. It’sRead more

Devour the Kibble!

Have you ever bent over your food and devoured it with gusto and without thought because you were simply ravenous? Gibbs the cat devours his food as if it were his last meal. He claims in “meows” that it’s past time to eat because he has been wasting away to nothing. To nothing…skin and bones. The evil human makes him wait too long, but once the food is upon him, he eats – sometimes wolfing it down in mere minutes,Read more

A Thanksgiving Plea

I beg of you, I implore you, I make a plea on my knees, Do NOT dress your cat up for Thanksgiving.

The Crinkle and the Nip

I ran into Walgreen’s to buy dish gloves. On the end of the aisle, my eyes were drawn to a long, brown, furry toy that crinkled and squeaked. It was a dog toy and it was perfect… for a cat. Natasha discovered some time ago that Gibbs loves the crinkly plastic that packagers use around jars and boxes and whatever product it helps seal. He comes running when he hears the noise, much like Pavlov’s Dog salivating at the sound of aRead more

Hey Baby…

  Human:  Gibbs! Get off of Ziva! Gibbs:  Hey baby, what happens in the kitty bed, stays in the kitty bed. Human: *rolls eyes, walks away in disgust* For other versions of “On Top” click here. PS: It’s been a fast and furious week. I hope to be back with somewhat intelligent, humorous content soon. In the meantime, Happy Easter to those who celebrate and Happy Weekend to the rest.Read more
