Kismet stayed right beside him, all the way to the very end.

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 Packet

| April 11, 2014

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 […]

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 Packet

| April 11, 2013

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.

Saturday Afternoon with Packet

| March 30, 2013

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.

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 Packet

| April 11, 2012

My handsome fluffy lad turns five years old today. It’s kind of hard to believe. Tuna will be making an appearance later today… after the boys have their annual vet checkups.
