There's a new mouse in town

There's a new mouse in the house. I know because I put it there. It's a pet mouse - the kind of mouse you don't allow the cat to harass. "Not the mice in the cage, Leo; it's the other mice we want you to catch." Talk about a confusing double standard. This mouse takes the place of Gomff, who passed away last month after developing a tumor. What? You may ask do you do when your son's mouse develops a tumor?...more

Queen Kitty

Esme the cat continued in her battle against Kiefer’s villianous reign of not allowing cats on the furniture. Now that she’s conquered the greatest battle of being allowed on the bed, she’s moved on to the lesser pieces of furniture, like Kiefer’s old recliner. Behold Esme’s throne! Also behold Esme’s Stop-Acting-Like-Paparazzi Look here....more
I gave up on that battle along time ago. My dog has made herself at home and expects all of the ...more

  If you've read my blog for .5 seconds, you'd know I am in love with my puppy, Ernie. I can't call him my dog, even though he is two years old, puppy sounds much cuter and more loveable. I've always loved animals but wasn't until my 4 legged baby stole my heart that I have developed a deep love and passion for animals. Watching Planet Earth now makes me cry and seeing homeless people with dogs just tears me up inside....more

Kai vs. the Spider Plant

This week has been busy & I haven't gotten out much. So there wasn't much to write about.Here's a very amateur video of Kai the cat, of her hopes & dreams to annihilate the hanging spider plant. The spider plant is not poisonous to cats or dogs, but it can upset their stomachs if they ingest it. Plus I just wanted to do something silly that didn't require much brain power. Hope you enjoy!...more
