How to Prepare for Time Away from Your Cat

Before we took our vacation this year, we were very

worried about Rain. She has a routine and she lives with two people who work

from home. She sits in the kitchen and "hellos" if we are distracted

with work or other things.

So, the idea of leaving her home for five days had

us worried sick.


To be honest, it was eye-opening about the type of

people we are. We used to prefer dogs, but our old apartment was close to a

highway and we…

How to Stop Kitty Wake-up Calls

Cats are by nature crepuscular. It's a word I don't like very much as its sounds creepy, but it means they are most active at dawn and dusk. This could be related to their hunting instincts as many prey animals are also most active at these times.

But what it means to me is that in the summer, Rain wants to be up early -- too early. She has a window seat that gets the morning sun and she usually will lay about on it, absorbing the morning sun until 6 a.m., maybe 6:30 if I'm lucky.…

Update #2 and a ?

Rocket went to the vet and is leukemia-free!! I am super duper relieved! I got all kinds of good things for him today. Although he is free of fleas right now our vet always gives new kittens, on their first visit, free Revolution! This medication is for fleas, heartworm, hookworm, roundworm, and ear mites! Good stuff. Vet also gave us a free bag of Hills Science Diet kitten food, and 2 cans of wet kitten food. He got his first round of vaccines and Dr. Guinan took the time to clean his lil…

The Feral Kitten Once Known as Buddy

This is the kitten that my husband and I rescued last summer from a local BBQ joint where he was begging for food.  It was about a 1/4 mile from a major highway and we didn't want him to go splat.

Rain and our landlord are opposed to us having more cats, but we brought Buddy home overnight and…

How to Keep Your Cat Cool in a Heat Wave

Last week, we were away, gone to Seattle for a wedding. Our friend Nick stayed at our house to watch over Rain and make sure she got plenty of exercise and affection while her people were missing in action.

Seattle was gorgeous and had a high temperature of about 75 degress. When we stepped off the plane getting home, the temperature was 99 degrees and the heat index was 115. Yup, southern Illinois is unpleasant in the summer. A writer friend quipped that she was pretty sure Satan had…

Rainbow Bridge

The Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of Heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. 

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.

 There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. 

There is plenty of food, water and sunshine and our friends are warm and comfortable.

 All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and…
