A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Kitchen



I have no idea what these two were up to, but I was walking into the kitchen with camera in hand to  put the battery in the charger, and this is what I saw.

Charlene looks a tad guilty.

And I know that often we project human emotions onto our cats, but I do believe cats are capable of feeling guilt.

Or is she angry? Angry at me for seeing this moment, for laughing at them, or taking a picture? Or angry at Wylla because she encroaching on her space? The chair is right next to a furnace vent, so this spot is coveted on cold days.

Who knows for sure what's happening here, but I'm grateful for this moment because these two gave me a good laugh,  and something to ponder.

Thanks, cats. You're good at that.

Playing it Safe

I know you all know this, and I'm preaching to the choir here, but before you try this game at home, please remember that string can be a hazard to cats. Never let your kitty ingest string - it can cause major issues and is potentially fatal.

 So, if you use string as a cat toy, never let go of the other end, and when you're done playing, put the string somewhere safe and out of paw's reach.

With that said, Wylla and Charlene think string is really fun. And those lightning fast paws are pretty cute.

Bean Gets a Clean Bill of Health


 Charlene was do for a round of vaccines and her annual physical, so I took her into the vet last week. We decided to do a "geriatric" blood panel to see how things look. It's shocking to think she's entered that stage of life, but Bean turns nine in just a couple of weeks.

All is well with Charlene. She's lost a few ounces since her last visit, her teeth are excellent, and the blood work results all looked great!

We're so glad she's doing so well. Let's hope that all continues for many years to come!

 The wee one has been hovering just below seven pounds for a few weeks now. I'm been anxious to see her roll past it, so I've been weighing her everyday. Well, yesterday she did it!


Wylla Stout weighs seven pounds!!!!



And this makes us very happy!

This time last year, she had just hit five pounds, so she really has made great progress in the past 12 months. You can definitely feel the difference when you give her a hug. There's more girth, for sure.

Onward and upward, not-so-wee Wylla!
