Toothy Toosday!

Hector shows off his "Candy Corns" this Halloween season.  Believe it or not he just had these babies cleaned this year.  Feel free to send a photo of your cat's nasty teeth for "Toothy Toosday".

Will Wag for SWAG!

What happens when you come home from a pet-blogging conference with lots of dog treats?  

 Honey thinks SWAG stands for "Succulent Wonders Await Gooddogs".
(God bless her she thinks good dogs is one word.)  

She always brings her naughty delights into my older son's room. 

Either the TidNips were her favorite or the strength of TidNips packaging is inferior.
She ate every morsel.   Luckily the other packages remained intact
thus avoiding massive stomach upset.  I should have known better!


Fluff Shepherds Pies

Nothing gets past the cat who watches over a flock of resting cow patties.  
Fluff knows a dog who likes to roll in them.  This travesty will not happen on his watch.

Cats vs. Dogs in an Emergency

Ever wonder what your pet would do if you had fallen and couldn't get up?  I have wondered this myself and created a little "emergency" in my kitchen and documented the results.   I was not surprised.

The Scenario....
I've fallen in the kitchen (Julia Roberts in Steel Magnolias-style) while making dinner.

First on the scene?  The dog.  Honey is her name and she is a beautiful, loyal, 
Coonhound mix of about 13 years of age.  

Honey doesn't hesitate to find a phone and attempt a call for help.  She's seen this thing used by her people for 13 years.  How hard can it be?  Good girl! 

A cold rag for the face.  Good call Honey.  Maybe I got overheated in the kitchen.  You can't go wrong with a cold rag and Honey knows it.  Good girl! 

A pillow under the head and feet elevated while she waits for help.  What more could I ask for?  She's better than Life-Alert.  Good DOG!!! (weird how the spoon ended up back in my hand isn't it?)

And then....there are the cats.  

Hector investigates.  It's a slow process.  Anxiety about his next meal sets in.  

Fluff arrives on the scene and is excited about the new "box" on the floor. "For me?", he asks.

Fun with apron strings! 

Making biscuits!  (as I lay dying)

"Listen b*tch!  How the hell long are you going to lay here while I need help opening my food?"

Party on the table!!  Hell yeah!

The worry is exhausting.  Time for a nap.  

And well, that's basically how it would happen at my house.

Paranormal Activity?

A not-so-happy and rather scary accidental photo of Fluff yawning.  Creepy......

Armed Soldiers Go Unnoticed By Dangerous Giant Cat!

Anyone who knows my family knows it is not uncommon for me to come across scenes like this.  This scene is courtesy of my nine year old.

Positioned on top of and around a giant bag of cat food, army soldiers stand ready to take out this large fleshy feline should he show signs of aggression.  So far the only signs shown have been those of hunger.  And gas.  The cat released Methane earlier today.

Dial M for Fluff

Fluff appears to be a Maine Coon. We don't know for sure because he just showed up on our porch one day and he didn't have his papers. But Maine Coons usually have an M on their forehead so we figure he must be one. In Fluff's case we think the M could stand for one of the following:

Mangy Mongrel
Mouse-hunting Monster
Maniacal Mad-Cat
Mutilates Mice on Mondays
Mangles Magpies with Malice
Mr. Mellow Meow Machine
Mr. Magical Mystery Mutt
