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?

3 Cats’ Ode to Chewy

3catsBannerLge1.24.14There are no mousies here to eats…but it’s OK…we got Chewie treats!ChewyLogoWe signed in to review a product from and we were compensated with a colorful packet of Wellness Kittles. The cats of course sensed it was for them from the beginning, but got a little worried when I read the ingredients and suggested we split the bag four ways. “Each all-natural bite is packed with BIG TASTE from whole-food ingredients like chicken, cranberries and blueberries.” Sounds delicious, right? I lost, of course.

Cat reactions started immediately – they were ready! It was obvious from the start that this is no ordinary treat. Each cat took a base, and the munching began:

An eager start - bases loaded.

An eager start – bases loaded.
