My very special boy is gone.

Gotcha Day 2014

| April 22, 2014

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 […]

Birthday Boy Kismet

| April 18, 2014

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 […]

Gotcha Day

| April 22, 2013

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 […]

Birthday Boy Kismet

| April 18, 2013

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.

Cat Guy

| January 18, 2013

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 […]

Work(station) in Progress

| December 6, 2012

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, […]

Gotcha Day

| April 22, 2012

The calendar may say one thing or another, but around these parts, we all know April 22nd is Gotcha Day. Kismet and Packet have been with me for four years now, and I’ve loved every bit of it. And they clearly still love each other. Here’s hoping I have many more years with the lads. […]

Birthday Boy Kismet

| April 18, 2012

Today my little buddy, fuzzy boy Kismet, turns five years old. He’s so much like a kitten (except for his size – he’s huge) that it’s hard to believe he’s such an age. More tuna will be forthcoming today. I don’t spoil the lads much, do I?

Kismet’s Excellent Adventure

| February 22, 2012

Monday night was full of excitement for at least one member of this household. It was about 8:30, well after dark, when I went downstairs to retrieve a box that I knew was waiting for me outside my front door. As usual, the cats followed me downstairs. As I cracked open the front door, Kismet […]
