No changes in attitude

3catsBannerLge1.24.14We are participating in a contest review, brought to the internet by one of our favorite companies’ The Cat Scratch Lounge, founded by none other than:

We received a surprise gift sent in April of 2013 – the Cat Scratch Lounge, and we gave it a review.

Our response to Daisy McKitty follows:
1. Wart and Scooter shared the Lounge – very rare
2. It is a box – of course they loved it!
3. The Lounge was laced with catnip
4. This was the first catnip Scooter ever reacted to
5. An extra baggie of nip included – I had to hide it
6. The lounge takes up very little room
7. It is very sturdy – well put together
8. Scooter can sharpen her claws, get nipped, and take a nap, all in one place
9. Wart can sharpen his phantom claws
10. Scooter can still see the TV (if she isn’t too nipped out)

It's Mine, I tell you, it's mine!

It’s Mine, I tell you, it’s mine!

Fast forward to today. I am recycling my original review. Sadly, my little big man Wart is no longer with us.

It's more comfy than my Inbox!

But right now, I am focused on the cool contest from Ms. McKitty. (It ends at Midnight tonight! If you have not entered, there is still time!)

My new review edition is Ten Reasons Why We Want to Win the Scratch Lounge II.
1. All three cats love the Lounge and with two more, they can each have their own
2. Three big windows and three lounges will create personal space for each cat

I know the Lounge is more comfortable.

3. Russell will have his OWN Lounge for his snuggly sunrise heat nap
4. Alice from the Palace to watch her bee friends who hang out under the arch
5. Scooter to spy on the neighbors and see who had an overnight guest (ahem)
6. We already know how sturdy and long lasting the product is
7. The catnip is packed to stay fresh and potent!
8. All three cats use the durable scratch pads
9. They love the comfort of the lounge
10. More time to scratch, less time on the couch with Scratch LoungeII!

Did I mention there is still time to enter?

It’s the 4th of July somewhere

Lge4thJuly2014BannerThe 4th of July is one of my top favorite holidays. Due to all sorts of strange events, none of our plans were met and my post did not get published…or even finished. All is well. I have no problem extending the holiday. I wish you all a very happy Fourth of July weekend!RussellGoes2Meeting7.5.2014

The 4th of July means something to me. I was not free, and then I set myself free, and then I got the kind of life I wanted in the first place. Hurray for America and our founding fathers who started it all.  – Russell

P.S. I wasn’t really at that meeting.



Have a happy fourth of July on the 5th and 6th, everyone! Do you like my new Ceiling Cat Defense Hat?

Just kidding. I only have 12 mean bones in my body. – Scooter



I want to be like a Yankee Doodle Dandy.

Hey Mom! Thanks for choosing this hat for me. I spinned the thing on the top and the whole band showed up.

Happy 4th of July weekend, everybody! -Alice from the Palace






Spring Cleaning in Florida

LgeBnnrSpringCleaningSpring cleaning in Florida can happen anytime. There is no definitive time for “Spring”, but that really does not excuse our lack of getting it done.

This will take a little coaxing. Alice from the Palace and Scooter have already opted out of the project.

Russell pulled out his tool box and he was ready to go. 3.RussellWithToolbox What a mess! I should not have waited until after baseball season started.4shouldBeDoneBforeBBseasonBut, here is a real problem. We call it “The Paper Trail”. This huge mass of packing paper has been in the livingroom for weeks now, and the kitties play in it all the time. Should we keep it, or throw it away?
