Cats, cats, and more cats!

Thumbnail image for 'Cats, cats, and more cats! '
I threw this together during the monthly ChicagoNow blogpalooza hour. First off, I apologize for no sound (don’t like the way I sound) and crappy video editing. Secondly, my ASL sucks. Thirdly, enjoy cats, cats, and more cats!

UW-Madison cat experiments - can animal experimentation be okay?

UW-Madison cat experiments - can animal experimentation be okay?
PETA recently sounded the alarm on cruel experiments on cats up at UW-Madison, and many of my Facebook friends have expressed shock, anger, and disgust about the news. I didn’t even read the details, and I already wanted to cry at work. So, I didn’t read it yet, and it slipped my mind by the... Read more »

Cats are assholes

Cats are assholes
My cats are assholes. They care more about food than about me. Let me back up and explain. I was sawing wood yesterday out on my balcony. All my straight-edge cuts (horizontal and vertical) went smoothly, and I decided I would try to make right angle triangles as shelf brackets for this one project. Diagonal... Read more »

The Cat in the Footstool - a Caturday story

The Cat in the Footstool - a Caturday story
Back when Pumpkin adopted me, she was about 6 months old, so she liked doing kitten-y things, like get into places where she shouldn’t. One of these places was a footstool my in-laws had lent to me and my roomie when we found a duplex together. It went with the mustard-colored chairs, also loaners, that... Read more »

Wake up, my BOWL is EMPTY! - a Caturday story

Wake up, my BOWL is EMPTY! - a Caturday story
My cat, Joe, is a perfect alarm clock. He’s the alarm clock that you can’t press “snooze” on. It’s not the kind of alarm you can learn to sleep through. He starts off with licking. He licks my chin, my nose, my cheeks, my arm and hands. If I try to ignore him, he starts... Read more »

First world cat problem #1: a Caturday story

First world cat problem #1: a Caturday story
Punky is a large and furry cat. She’s larger than many other cats, and we suspect some Maine Coon in her. We have large litter boxes. But they’re not the extra large litter boxes. I’m sure you can see where we’re going with this. Fortunately, she tends to poop with her butt toward the back... Read more »

Cat Yoga - a Caturday story

Cat Yoga - a Caturday story
Every time I roll out my yoga mat to exercise, the cats come running. Downward facing dog pose means a nose-rub. Leg-lifts equals an invitation for them to come bite my feet. It’s really difficult to do any of the laying down weight lifting exercises because they think that it’s appropriate to lay down next... Read more »

A warm cat bed for the winter - a Caturday story

Dear neighbor downstairs, Thank you for leaving your bathroom heater on all day. I’m not being sarcastic. Seriously, thank you. I know when we first encountered your tendency to leave your bathroom warmer thingy on, it a) actually made it too hot to walk in the bathroom with bare feet on bare tile, and b)... Read more »

A purring cat solves all problems - a Caturday story

Cats know when you’re sad, stressed, overwhelmed, angry, or depressed. Sometimes they don’t care and will keep on meowing just to annoy you further. This is their way of teaching us how to learn how to tolerate additional stresses, kind of like military training. Sometimes they do care. When we don’t want to be touched,... Read more »

My cat thinks I'm a dunce - a Caturday story

My cat thinks I'm a dunce - a Caturday story
This. This mouse is the only toy he will play with by himself. No other type of mice will work except this one. With the fuzzy body and the leathery tail, I frequently scour Petco for this particular kind of mouse. And this mouse is the star of this Caturday story. My cat, Joseph (Joe),... Read more »
