The truth about cats revealed!

| September 4, 2011

Simon’s Cat demonstrates the truth about working at home with cats present. I know this is true because, every day since I restructured my work area to give my two computers more desktop real estate, I have had what might be referred to as visitations, much like what Simon’s Cat demonstrates. In a feline parallel […]

Good Gotcha Day Friday

| April 22, 2011

Earth Day? No. Good Friday? Emphatically yes. Bonus? It was three years ago today that I brought home two of the best things I have ever had in my life, Packet and Kismet. (The senior kitteh, Mycah, came several years before.) I’m pretty sure I’d give up everything before I would part with these little […]

Birthday Boy: Kismet

| April 18, 2011

Another week, another kitteh birthday. Just a week younger than his adoptive brother, Kismet turns four today. He’s certainly grown up, outweighing elder brother Packet by at least three pounds. He stands head and shoulders taller than Mycah. He’s the largest cat I’ve ever had. Here, he emulates his brother’s behavior, preventing me from working […]

Kismet: Video Gamer

| February 23, 2011

I’ve been playing quite a bit of Mass Effect 2 lately. I’ve beaten it at the “veteran” level, but “hardcore” and “insanity” wins still elude me. I don’t intend to review the game here — that’s been done all over the place, but you could do worse than to check out the G4TV X-Play review. […]

Veterinary Adventures

| November 21, 2010

This past week has been a week chock full of… well, nothing but a to-do with a fuzzy troublemaker, really. All three of the cats had just had their semiannual checkups, and all three came through pretty well. Then on Monday, I noticed that one of the cats had been trying to barf, though nothing […]

The Beast Emerges

| July 7, 2010

Kismet comes out to play…. I can’t help but be reminded of a dragon crawling from its lair to pounce on a stereotypical tasty and nutritious maiden.


| April 22, 2010

Two years ago today, I was lucky enough to bring home two nervous but curious bundles of fur. Well… they didn’t stay nervous long, and have made themselves right at home. They’ve both grown quite a bit since their arrival, and though both are handsome hunks of mancattitude, they remain kittens at heart. I’m lucky […]

Birthday Boy Kismet

| April 18, 2010

Guess who’s turning three years old today? Kismet hasn’t just grown up — he has GROWN up. Weighing in at 9 pounds at his first vet visit after adoption, he is now a big, strong, muscular 13 pounds, with scarcely an ounce of fat on him. (If only we all could say the same for […]
