The one with the cats

First, I should apologize for the minor cursing in the post from yesterday. It was uncalled for, plus my mother MIGHT have called me about it. So there’s that.

Now on to something completely different….Cats. Specifically my three cats: Ty, Allie (aka Alegria Mocha), and Georgia (aka Georgia Pussapotomas). All three are rescues and we love them. Unless they (ahem Allie) are trying to kill us.

Pretty much SPOT on.

Pretty much SPOT on. AGAIN sorry for the language in this one (Mom)!

Ty who I sometimes call Tyrion Lanniscat, because it amuses me, is our oldest at 10 or 11 years old. He’s also cost us the most monies. He had feline bartonella which cost a pretty penny to get tested for AND the meds were fun to attempt to give him. Yeah imagine two adults, one to hold the cat, the other to shove the dropper down his throat to make sure he got it. That was “good times”.

Recently he was diagnosed with hyper thyroid. How did we know something was up? He was being more of a jerk to his sisters than usual. Plus throwing up everywhere. So now it’s cheese wrapped pills for him. Again, good times. I think this is also when I started calling him Tyrion Laniscat. Ty does have some awesome qualities. He LOVES to snuggle. Plus when he purrs, he PURRS. Boy does he love to sing us the song of his people.

He looks a little evil here.

He looks a little evil here. Also pay no attention to Georgia’s rear end.

I must say the similarities are uncanny!

Now his sister Allie was adopted on the same day as Ty. So you know we figured there would be little hissing if they both came to live with us on the same day. Bahahaha! Ok I feel better now. Yeah the hissing was intense. It was all coming from Allie. Ty is by far the MOST relaxed cat I have ever met. Allie on the other hand whines or loudly mews when you so much as look at her, let alone try to *gasp* pick her up! She’s cost us the least amount of extra monies. However, that two weeks she was in heat (because you can’t get them fixed when they’re in heat) somewhere around our fourth week of having here was NOT the most fun we’ve ever had. Please spay and neuter your pets.

Allie reminds me a lot of Toothless from How to Train Your Dragon. Mostly because of the attitude and the fact that she is missing part of a fang. It’s really cute when she isn’t whining.

I get this look A LOT! (source

Finally, we have the baby of the bunch. Funny thing is Georgia is probably the biggest of the cats. But she’s also scared of life. The only people she’s super comfy with is me and my hubbins. The rest of the time she’s kind of like OMG THERE ARE OTHER PEOPLE IN THE HOUSE!, RUN AND HIDE! Yeah that is fun right there. She also has the most toes of all our cats. Which makes for litter clean-up fun every time she get out of the box. Her nickname is Shovel Paws McGee.

I will say she is a good little kitten (I know she’s two, whatever). She loves to snuggle  attack my feet at night. Georgia also enjoys people food like crazy. My hubbins feels she’s the most special of our cats and not in a nice way. More like in an Ed way from The Lion King.

Actually, I feel this is an accurate representation of all our cats: Ty=Banzai, Allie=Shenzi, and's like that. (source

My hubbins and I love these three crazy furballs even if Allie tries to kill us with the flop and roll at our feet in the dark. Even when Ty pukes on the rug three inches from the kitchen floor. And yes even when Georgia (the cat of many toes) hits the litter box just as you finished scooping. Fact of the matter is they’re ours as much as we’re theirs. While they may be crazy, they sure are lovable. Other fact…when it comes time for them to head to that great big litter box in the sky I will be one hot mess.

But until that time I will give them the best their nine lives have to offer them. Now if you’ll excuse me someone must be cutting an onion nearby…

The “Productive” Morning

I’ve had a “productive” morning. And by that I mean I’ve tinkered with social media stuff, played with the cats, made a whole lot of tea, pissed off the mail man, you know normal day off things. There was other stuff in the mix, but it was boring.

Let’s take them one at a time shall we?

When I say tinkered with social media I mean jerked around updating the Facebook page and Twitter feed. I did finally get smart and combine the two. SO now when I update the Facebooks it will auto post to Twitter. I’m so smart sometimes it is SCARY!

By playing with the cats I actually mean chasing them off the table a million times in a short period of time. They saw it as playing, I saw it as being really irritated.

I actually haven’t had as much tea as I would have liked by this point in my day. The reason is I pissed off the mailman. Well, not true…I think he pissed me off more. Countless times last year he would leave things on our poorly covered front porch knowing full well there was an enclosed porch not far away. I once almost had tea pre-made for me when I arrived home. Sigh. Today I was tracking (read stalking) a tea order that was out for delivery. The only issue was my mailman had some and gone! So I call the post office when I should have waited (it turned up 10 minutes after I called), but I’m impatient and I love/wanted my tea!

I did also manage to scratch out some VERY rough notes for a new story that has been cooking in my head for a few weeks. So progress, yay! Also exciting news, a friend of mine wrote a cook a while back and I finally bought a copy! Said book is also now en route to me as I type this.  Which means…another round of stalking the mailman will begin very soon.

When all is said and done I wish I had a time machine to go back and start this day all over. But instead I have this…

One of the best gifts ever!

One of the best gifts ever!

…which isn’t the real deal…but by making more tea I’m sure I’ll forget all about how non-productive I really was today.
