What can I get into now ?

Milakoshka is the sweetest kitten, but at 6 months old, she still has a lot of kitten energy !! This morning the sun is out, and was reflecting off of some shiny objects. There were lots of sun spots on the ceiling and walls. Mila sees these spots, and cries, because she is trying to figure out how she can get to them. She was going crazy trying to get the sun spots. I finally had to close the living room curtains.

D' uh ..... A Helpful Household Tidbit !

Don't you act like you already knew this - LOL

I had to go into the kitchen and check this out for myself. Who looks at the end of your aluminum foil box?

You know when you try to pull some foil out and the whole roll comes out of the box. Then you have to put the roll back in the box and start over. The darn roll always comes out at the wrong time and almost every time you use it.

Well, I would like to share this with you.
Yesterday, I (NOT ME) went to throw out an empty Reynolds foil box and for some reason I turned it and looked at the end of the box.
And written on the end it said, Press here to lock end.

Right there on the end of the box is a tab to lock the roll in place.
How long has this little locking tab been there? I then looked at a generic brand of aluminum foil and it had one, too.
I then looked at a box of Saran wrap and it had them too! I can't count the number of times the Saran wrap roll has jumped out when I was trying to cover something up.
I'm sharing this with my friends.

I hope I'm not the only person that didn't know about this?
I got this e-mail from a friend... It was not me who discovered the cool little
notches on the sides of tin foil boxs... I am not that smart.
But I did go look at my tin foil box tonight, and sure enough the locking tabs were there...
D'uh, is just not a strong enough word to express how dumb I feel right now !
Please let me know I am not the dumbest person on the planet...




I just looked outside, and the sunset was beautiful. So I went out and took a photo, dressed only in slippers and a T-shirt. Burrrr, but it was worth it.

Funny !

Sad Day Today

One year ago today, my 20 + year old cat Smokey had a vet appointment at 4:30. She had not been feeling well for about 3 weeks before. She was not eating, and it was hard for her to walk.

We went to the vet & she told us Smokey's organs were shutting down, the best thing we could do for her is put her out of her pain...

We did. It was so hard to let go after 20 years of companionship. I still miss her everyday. I am crying as I write this. Smokey knew when I was sad, she knew if I didn't feel well. She would come lay on me when I was sick. She was my only child for 20 years, it was so hard to say goodbye...
I love you Mokey !

Cat Treats !

I just bought some great cat treats, and thought I'd share... My newest kitty Zateynik (BJ) is a VERY picky eater, and has never eaten a "treat" as long as we have had him. He ate these treats like they were going out of style !!!

They are called REAL FOOD TOPPERS I got the salmon, and all three went crazy for them !

Click on photo to go to the order page.

Video may be coming soon .... ??

I just bought this little camcorder. If I can ever figure out how it works, I may be posting cat videos soon. Mila will win me $10,000 on AFV, if she is not to blurry to film !!

Meals on Wheels !

Today Mishka and Mila get dinner on the road. We went to visit my step dad who is still recovering from a surgery he had on Dec. 11th, 2008. He lives north of us about 320 miles. It takes 4 1/2 hours to drive there, and the kitties are so good in the car.

My hubby and I drove up together with the 3 cats, but on the way home we drove separate vans, because we needed to bring a van back to Minneapolis for a friend. So, I was all alone in my van with 3 non-caged, free range kitties ...

It was no easy feat, but I managed not to crash. Mila and Zateynik were on mommies lap. ( most of the trip), Mishka wanted to be in her "USUAL" spot. On my right shoulder, seriously, she makes me hold her 14 pound butt for hours. My right arm is getting very strong !!

There is not enough "Mommy Lap" to go around !

Baby, It's Cold Outside ...

Mila takes a nap in the sun. As the temperature continues to drop, this is the best spot in the house to catch some "rays". The forecast for Minneapolis is crazy, we are going to have high temps that are below 0. We normally do not get that cold.
I hate winter !
