Not Just ANY Water Will Do!!

Written on November 11, 2009 – 6:00 am | by maxine |

I’m not sure but, it wouldn’t surprise me to find out that my body is mostly water, just like human bodies are mostly water.  In fact, it wouldn’t surprise me to find out that all cats and dogs are made up of mostly water. I do know it is very important that we have access […]

Do ALL two-leggers think – or is it just some that do?

Written on November 4, 2009 – 6:00 am | by maxine |

  We – meaning we eight members of the livestock family here – were having a discussion the other day.  We overheard our human care givers talking about yet another report in the news about a small dog who had been carried off by a coyote.  All kinds of cats and dogs have gone missing […]

On Keeping “Casheep” Safe

Written on September 30, 2009 – 5:32 am | by maxine |

  Sandi here – the herder of the family.  My border collie heritage comes through heavily in my personality and, as you might already know, border collies make excellent sheep dogs.  My golden retriever ancestry greatly influences me as well.  But, back to the herding of sheep.  Have you ever tried to herd a flock […]

Indoor/Outdoor Revisited

Written on September 23, 2009 – 5:28 am | by maxine |

Just over one year ago Princess and I (Gracie) came to live here in a small town, having moved from a country home where our caregiver, Tom, died in the spring of 2008. You might recall that some time back one of us told all about the dangers cats face when they are allowed to […]

Behind Bars!

Written on August 26, 2009 – 5:00 am | by maxine |

Being behind bars has certainly been an experience and a half.  My problems all started just over a year ago.  Until that time, I, Pebbles, the little brown and grey tabby was the only female feline in the household and I was quite content.  I was kind of a loner, although I liked to snuggle […]

I LOVE My Bath!!

Written on August 19, 2009 – 1:00 am | by Buzz |

  For sure, yes, I LOVE my bath.  Which, since I am a cat and many cats HATE getting a bath, is, I know, a little strange.  But, my people got me started into the bathing routine when I was just a tiny kitten.  I have attempted to jump into the shower when it has […]

Coming Out – I Did it!!

Written on August 12, 2009 – 1:00 am | by Buzz |

In past generations it was the fashionable practice for young ladies in higher stations of life to “come out” into society when they reached a certain age.  I think it generally meant that they were of eligible marrying age and the family was looking to marry her off to a gentleman of equal or greater […]

Can You Believe It? — She Labelled Us!!

Written on August 5, 2009 – 8:48 am | by Buzz |

We have a labeller in our house.  Not one of those little plastic gun type things where you press out letters on a strip of sticky tape.  Oh no.  Our labeller is just over five feet tall and possesses a brain with eyes that see something and figures it should be labelled.  There are post-it […]

Acetaminophen + Cats and Dogs

Written on July 22, 2009 – 8:00 am | by maxine |

A while back I had that little accident where I pulled all the muscles down my left side.  It was, without a doubt, a painful situation.  Someone told my people that you can give dogs a little dose of children’s liquid acetaminophen when they are in pain.  I am here to tell you “DON’T DO […]
