Cats, Hairballs and Embarrassing Moments

Written on May 26, 2010 – 5:42 am | by maxine |

It has been a little while since anyone from The Ark has had time to post a few comments and so we decided that before you all think we have all died and gone to doggy or kitty heaven, we had better elect someone to take the time to write.  So, in the end, it’s […]

A Dog’s Purpose

Written on April 14, 2010 – 5:58 pm | by maxine |

Hi.  It’s me, Sandi, the big sandy/orange coloured canine in the picture above – on behalf of dogs everywhere!  Mrs. Noah received in an Email this explanation about the purpose of a dog.  It came with lots of cute pictures this time but the explanation has been circulating the internet for a long time.  We […]

Oh Where Oh Where Has My Little Cat Gone?

Written on April 8, 2010 – 1:24 am | by maxine |

  You might know the song, “Oh where, oh where has my little dog gone, oh where or where can he be?”  Well, around here, Princess is the subject of the song.  You can never tell just where that silly cat is going to be “living” if you can call it that.  Just like people, […]

Shut That Barking Dog UP!!!

Written on March 24, 2010 – 5:00 am | by maxine |

We cats are so much quieter than dogs.  I know that for a fact because I AM A CAT!!  Actually, I have to admit that my voice is probably considered to be louder than my peers.  I do like to express my opinion sometimes and I do tend to set up a yowl if I […]

Is it “eese” or “ooses”?

Written on March 17, 2010 – 5:00 am | by maxine |

Mrs. Noah has been taking a course online and one of her fellow students enjoys using words that are not always in common use.  For instance, did you know that somewhere along the line you have been guilty of a peccant?  And no, this has nothing to do with being guilty of taking a second […]

Happy Groundhog Day!

Mrs. Noah is NOT a winter person.  She believes in staying snug-as-a-bug-in-a-rug whenever possible.  She figured this out years ago and it was confirmed when in January, 19 years ago some children at a church tobogganing party convinced her to go down the hill just one more time!  Well, it was one time too many.  […]

So, You Have or Want a New Family Member? A Dog?! A Cat?!

Written on January 27, 2010 – 6:01 am | by maxine |

  I will never forget coming to live here in the Ark.  One extremely hot summer’s day in June 2001 Bob (that’s the head two legger in the Ark) saw me with my litter mates in a box just outside a grocery store.  Two little girls were trying to sell us and it was so […]

A Guest Room?

Written on January 20, 2010 – 6:00 am | by maxine |

Remember that New Year’s guest room project we told you about?  Well, it turns out it is more than a guest room.  In fact, our people are trying to put one over on poor Sandi! Mrs. Noah is given to staying up late into the night working in the office.  Sandi can’t stand it when […]

New Year = Changes

Written on January 16, 2010 – 6:30 pm | by maxine |

Had this post been written when it should have been, it would have been titled “Happy New Year!!”  However, around here, one has to be flexible.  When our people rang in the new year we were ALL up to our ears in the middle of changes.  A lot of people stay up late on New […]

Not a Creature Was Stirring – Not Even a Mouse!

Written on December 23, 2009 – 6:00 am | by maxine |

The season of blessings and good cheer is upon us.  In just two days, people will be quoting those words, “Not a creature was stirring – not even a mouse!”  It’s sad, but true.  Back last summer at the warehouse Mrs. Noah found a mouse in a big box of styrofoam packing wiggles.   It was […]
