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 […]

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, […]

Toileting Station Situation – Part II

Written on February 17, 2010 – 1:00 am | by maxine |

I hope you did your homework and have a reasonable idea of what a water based toileting station is!  If not, you can always get up to speed by reading:  — Water Based Toileting Stations . I can’t honestly say which one is the very best water based toileting station.  They are all used, just […]

Toileting Station Situation – Part I

Written on February 10, 2010 – 1:00 am | by maxine |

  Smokey here – the official Ark Feline Toileting Station Inspector!  At the end of 2009 Mrs. Noah made some toileting station decisions, which ultimately ended up with additions and subtractions.  Since we have been using these various inventions for a long time now, it is time for my review of the good, the bad, […]

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 […]

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 […]

What Do You Mean – Don’t Have a Friendly Personality?

Written on December 16, 2009 – 6:00 am | by maxine |

Mrs. Noah was speaking with a fellow who’s wife has a phobia about cats.  She apparently sees ALL cats as a threat to her personal safety and enjoyment of life.  He (her husband) stated that no cat is a friendly cat and that they are only self-serving and totally aloof, only giving you the time […]

A Little Catty Intelligence

Written on December 2, 2009 – 6:00 am | by maxine |

  Ya gotta love cats.  They spend hours and hours every day sleeping or, as they like to say, cat napping.  And still, they are mentally sharp.  I suspect they are not really sleeping at all but are actually scheming and planning out their next way to keep their care givers on their toes.  Just […]

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone

Written on November 25, 2009 – 6:06 am | by maxine |

  Yes, we know that the Canadians celebrated Thanksgiving on October 12 because in most areas of Canada, by the time the American celebration comes around, we are typically under lots of snow.  There is usually definitely more than just frost on the pumpkins where we live.  In fact, the pumpkins are all gone!  So […]

White + Black + Brown = Cat Art

Written on November 18, 2009 – 6:00 am | by maxine |

I am almost embarrassed to say it but I am an artist!  To be honest, my skills came to light last week quite unexpectedly.  You just never know what talents and major discoveries are lurking in the background, just waiting to be exposed. For instance, the world’s greatest artists did not just suddenly have people […]
