Cat Blog Friday



For this Cat Blog Friday...

... a cat covered in post-it notes.

One of my resolutions for 2018 is to stop writing on post-it notes all the time. If there's something worthwhile to note, I'll write it in my daytimer.

Yeah. That's what I tell myself.

Happy Friday everybody.

Bears Too?



A bear attacked a man in Naples on Tuesday night, the first time ever in South Florida.

Great, just one more thing to worry about in Florida.

7-ELEVEN



New Hepatitis A Scare Comes To Utah County On Heels Of Exposures At Salt Lake County 7-Eleven

I wonder if the recent Hepatitis A scares have anything to do with this...

Immigration Agents Descend On Dozens Of 7-ELEVEN Stores

I know that correlation does not imply causation, but it's so very coincidental that these two events are occurring almost simultaneously.

Delaying immigration reform is like closing the well after a child drowns in it. After we become a third world country, reform will be too late.

Brown Ales



Brown Ales May Be Unfashionable, But The Style Is Timeless

I gave up drinking beer years ago because of the carbs, but back then my tastes ran towards Heineken and Moosehead.

This article has made me rethink the brownies now. I'm game for an occasional taste test. Are you?

The Raccoon Saga



A while back I saw what I thought to be was our Main Coon cat, Shoshin,on the back deck, but when a baby raccoon followed her, I knew immediately that it wasn't our cat. I watched the duo go from the deck and go around the pool enclosure. I put out some saltines for them and they were gone the next day. I don't know who ate them, but I have a few suspects.

END STORY... not.

Yesterday, I saw two baby raccoons run across the back deck and I was amazed. Then a third one came running and then a fourth! I was speechless at this point and then a firth one came running up the deck and running up our huge oak tree. I watched them for hours until my husband came home and put a bowl of cat food up in the crook of the tree where they were hiding. For the rest of the evening, we watched those beautiful babies happily chowing down while mama coon watched from a higher post in our tree.

END STORY...????

My husband put out some sushi in the back yard and I put out some crackers on the back deck.

I'll let you know when I know something.

Poor Oregonians



I thought this was an article from The Onion:

‘I Don’t Even Know HOW’: Some Oregonians Panic About New Self-service Gas Law

The line that kills me is, "I've lived in this state all my life and I REFUSE to pump my own gas ... This [is] a service only qualified people should perform."

Qualified people to pump gas?

Yes, some Oregonians could use some qualified people... qualified in the mental health field.

Today Is My Birthday



If I believed in spirit animals, mine would be a cat. What better than a grumpy birthday cat for me. I'm always grumpy on my birthday and this cold and rain isn't helping my mood.

Emotional Support



This is the kind of story that makes my head explode:

Veteran Must Surrender Emotional Support Dog

You are going to take away this man's dog because it weighs six pounds over the condo association limit?????

Seriously.

Chuck Norris

You all know I'm a big science/science fiction geek, so I wanted to see what your opinion about this take about Chuck Norris's birth in the sci-fi world was like.



The above was just my Alien version, but feel free to post your own Chuck Norris epigram to the compilations of the ones already on the internet.

Cat Blog Friday



For this Ct Blog Friday...

... meet Merlin the angry-looking Himalayan-Ragdoll mix. I read his owner says he's sweet-natured, but just looks angry.

For more Merlin pics

I think he's a gorgeous cat and I'd scoop him up in a New York minute. His RBF makes me smile.

Happy Friday everybody!

Enough



I can certainly empathize with Alicia Colon's most recent column:

Toxic Hatred Of Trump A Sign Of Non Compos Mentis

I hated the Clinton years and I hated the Obama years, but it didn't drive me bat $hit crazy.

Life went on and I got over it.

This was an unusual find in the news...

Shoshin Wants Back



I don't know if you remember the incident in August regarding my cat, Shoshin, and her job as my assistant and her subsequent firing, but she has now defiantly requested her job back.

I'm tempted to tell her she did a lousy job as an assistant, but her attorneys are saying I didn't always feed her promptly [3am] and that her kitty litter wasn't always super fresh so it was in retaliation of my lousy job as a cat owner.

She looked really mad about it so I took her back.

Elephan-sie?



We're not all lucky enough to have an elephant friend that will take a selfie with us.

Lovely pic.

Thank goodness none of the Kardashians were in the area.

Fowl To Foul



I don't know about you, but I'm still having David Cassidy songs going through my head (why do the news stations only play "I Woke Up In Love This Morning" and not "I Think I Love You"? *shrug* ) and then this morning I woke up to a commercial where Mary Lou Retton (yes, little Mary Lou) was hawking some Australian joint pain medication... feeling old.

Then it occurred to me that my three favorite college football teams lost over the weekend... feeling bad for those kids.

Then daughter #1 dropped off a cat-pee laden cat carrier with a 'hi and goodbye because I'm late for work' excuse (the reason for the cat pee in the carrier is another story)... feeling like I lost a feline friend.

Then a man in a Ford F-150 truck laden with "stuff" in the back pulls into the lot next door where there is new construction underway and Mr. Cube thinks the man is going to dump his "stuff" into the construction dumpster, but the man goes into the Port-O-Potty instead... feeling like [you fill in the blank because I'm still holding out the expectation of becoming president. I mean, if Bill and Barack pulled it off, what the hey, right?]

Then it occurred to me that daughter #2 is leaving today.

It's not been the best of mornings, but then I read this:

Unhinged Coverage Of Trump Is Hurting The Media

No duh, Sherlock.

I agree that the unhinged coverage of President Trump is a BIG problem, but you don't think Teen Vogue's recent article about anal sex manuals for TEENS had nothing to do with sagging sales?

Parents Outraged Over Teen Vogue Anal Sex How-to column (but magazine still defends it)

And the bottom line of your column is that the media are failing because of Trump... yeah, right.

What is the color of the sky in your world, Mr. Smith?

Meanwhile back to my world, yes, my mood is still foul, but hey, tomorrow is Monday. yah.

Dog Shaming



I'm sure there are some guilty cats out there, but here are some dog antics ...

This is our first Thanksgiving without a dog in long time and I must admit I miss the doggy shenanigans.
