My soft, sweet, cozy, lovey, Jelliebeanie. I can’t believe that we had to say goodbye to you already. This life, it’s just not fair. Hannah found you as a 2 week old kitten, abandoned and missing your mama. For weeks, we bottled fed you and Butterscotch, around the clock. I’m ever so thankful to have… Read More
This morning was the first time since September that I didn’t wake up in a panic, looking for Hazel, to see if she was still with us. Since having a stroke in the fall, she’s just not been her usual self, she’s had good days and hard days, some more trying that others. And being… Read More
It’s almost 12:30 am. I should be sleeping. But I’m wide awake. I can’t bring myself to go to sleep. My whole house is asleep. Even Hazel. She’s curled up and “rumming” (as my kiddos affectionately call purring) on my feet, under my desk. She’s hiding. She’s hiding, the way that elderly cats do when… Read More
Spring is supposed to be coming, right? All of the kitties keep sneaking out for fresh air, but only Jelliebeanie tolerates it for any length of time. Today, she’s not pleased.

Oh, Miss Millie! I just love her serious little pretty face. But she is an ornery thing! (not to James, he still spoils her) Hannah calls her a potato cat. She has gotten quite round!
Even Tom is ready! I think he’s a bit shocked at the temperatures even though he was anxious to get outside, jump up on the deck rail, and survey his land. He let me snap his cute mug and then he jumped back down and headed inside again. I don’t blame him one bit!
Meet Thomas. He’s a really good buddy. He’s always available for snuggles, chin scratches, and belly rubs. He’s really tolerant of little kids who don’t always know how to be gentle and of Corgis who think he is their herding toy. He doesn’t wear eyeliner, but he looks like he does! I just love… Read More
