Protect Those Eyeballs!

Written on March 31, 2010 – 7:38 am | by maxine |

You would think that two leggers would know better.  Of course, some do but some obviously don’t.  It’s that time of year when the snow is gone and the promise of spring is in the air.  People are cruising down the roads with their windows down and the wind blowing through their hair.   The bugs […]

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 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 […]

I LOVE My Bath!!

  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 […]

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 […]

My Accident!

Written on June 10, 2009 – 2:00 am | by maxine |

Being a little dog has its perks, but also its drawbacks, as I discovered this week.  For one thing, my person, Andrea, lets me sleep with her and I just love being a live teddy bear, especially since I just hate sleeping or being alone.  Being small of stature means I can find places to […]
