Six years ago today, I was privileged to bring home the lads that have become my closest companions, while remaining each others’ best buddies. [Not the best picture, but it’ll do.] Packet and Kismet were raised from feline infancy through to their first birthdays at the Cat Angels rescue shelter, a non-profit organization that I […]

Another week, another feline birthday. Yes, today is the day Kismet turns seven years old. Here we see him doing one of the things he does best: He’s a wonderful lad, the epitome of cat, and my constant companion. I’m not sure what I would do without him, his playfulness, inquisitiveness, and his affection. Like […]

It’s rather hard to believe, but my big fluffball Packet turns seven years old today. There aren’t many bright spots in my days, but one I can count on is that Packet will at some point hop up into my lap for a nose-boop and an extended chin-skritch session, his quiet purrs buzzing away like […]

It’s hard to believe, but it was five years ago today that I brought the lads here to their forever home. Kismet and Packet are such opposites in so many ways, and yet remain best buddies. I’m happy to have them. Sometimes I wonder if the purpose of my existence now is to be the […]

This week is Kismet’s turn for a birthday celebration. He, like his brother, is six years old. He’s as friendly as a puppy, as playful as a kitten, and a constant companion. As with his brother, I hope for many more years with him.

HRSIF* Packet is six years old today. Here he is, celebrating the day in his customary manner: His extreme floofiness is easily mistaken for excess poundage; in fact, he is a couple of pounds lighter than his little brother Kismet. * His Royal, Serene and Imperial Fluffiness.

I turned around from working at the kitchen counter to discover I had some company. Packet is a very stealthy fellow — I never heard him coming. Even his meows are quiet. In this he is very much the opposite of Kismet, who never seems to shut his pie hole.

It was nine years ago this week that I became a cat guy. Mycah and Xaxu came to live with me for a while…. I’ve told their story before. Xaxu has been gone quite a while, and Mycah passed just over a year ago. I miss them both, but I am now privileged to have […]

So, the desk I ordered last week arrived much much sooner than I expected. I was thinking Wednesday, but it came on Monday. The afternoon and evening hours were spent hauling the beast up the stairs, one box at a time. As the total shipped weight was over 170 pounds, this was no easy proposition, […]

My girl Mycah passed a year ago today. I still miss her, still feel the loss. Fortunately, I still have the lads.
