Here are brothers Tigger and Flash taken on this day in 2009.
Tigger, the ginger boy, was adopted by my mother-in-law in 2005. The shelter called the next day saying that Puck was essentially freaking out without his brother. They wanted her to adopt Puck or return Tigger. Since she didn’t want two cats and we didn’t want to send him back to the shelter, we adopted both, bringing our cat count up to six.
As a side note, their original names were Dooley and Ernie, but I forgot who was Ernie and who was Dooly.
You may remember me writing about how Chris started tipping his food bowl over so he could eat the food off the floor because he was too lazy to stand and eat. I ended up purchasing a wooden bowl stand that prevented Chris from tipping the bowls over. To celebrate my victory I wrote a post called “Checkmate.” I was happy that I could finally outsmart my cat. Or could I?
I saw this the other day.
He always has to win. I don’t know how he does it.
I was thinking about a new post for my meme blog, Just Fur Laughs, since it had been a while since my last one. I started looking through recent photos with the hope of coming up with something funny when this picture caught my eye.
For some reason, the thought of a kissing booth crossed my mind. I thought about adding a sign that said “Kissing Booth” above Chris’s head but I could not find a way to do it so that it would be realistic. Then it hit me. Why not make a real sign?
I pulled a piece of paper out of my printer and folded it in half. I then found a marker and wrote my sign. After that, I attached two pieces of tape to the sign, attached the sign to the cat tree, and took a photo of it.
Once I had my picture, I emailed it to my desktop computer and opened it in Paint Shop Pro. There I cut the sign out of the photo and opened up the original photo and placed the sign at approximately the same location.
You can see the final result here. What do you think?
A few weeks ago I was honored to be selected for the Sunshine Blogger Award and I have struggled to find the time to acknowledge it until now. It was given to me by Spence’s Girl who has a great blog that is worth checking out.
While I am honored to receive awards like this, I typically don’t perpetuate them but this time I thought It would be fun to follow the first half of the rules which are as follows:
Thank the person who nominated you! Answer the 11 questions you were asked. Nominate 11 other bloggers and let them know they were nominated. Ask the nominees 11 questions
I am not sure where the Sunshine Blogger Award originated. I tried to find the origin but could not. I did find the Liebster Award to be very similar. So anyway, here are my questions:
Here is one of Frankie’s vet visits from February 2016 for Throwback Thursday. I can’t remember the last time Frankie has been to the vet. At almost twelve years old, he is in very good health, except for all the sneezing he has done since we adopted him.
Frankie has been having sneezing attacks for a couple of weeks now and I avoided taking him to the vet because I didn’t think there was much they could do about a cold. After about a week he was sneezing less but a few days ago he started sneezing again. This time there was a lot of Phlegm that went with it. It wasn’t long before we had cat snot all over the house.
Sometime late Friday or early Saturday we noticed a little blood mixed with the mucus on a closet door near where Frankie just sneezed. We decided then that a vet visit was required but Saturday was the only day we could bring him so I called Puck’s latest vet as soon as they opened to see if they could squeeze him in. Unfortunately, they were already overbooked and they closed at noon so I had to try…
