Where’s Mergatroid?

Standard

Winter was almost over. The sun was getting warmer and Mergatroid liked to lie on the window sill to soak up the heat. It felt so good on his body! Not only that, he could watch everything going on outside. The snow was melting; people were out walking. Some of them even had dogs with them. Mergatroid was glad that he was inside because he didn’t really care for dogs.

One day the family decided it was time to do some cleaning. Not just regular cleaning, but washing and shampooing everything. The kids were in charge of their rooms while Mom and Dad worked on the living room. It took all day, but they washed the walls and the ceiling, dusted the furniture and were ready to shampoo the carpet when they realized that nobody had seen Mergatroid for a long time. They looked all over the house and in every room, but he was not to be found. Where was he?

When they finally found him, they had learned a very valuable lesson!

Rain, Rain, Go Away!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Standard

This has been one very frustrating week! My parents fought the water problem with the basement for years; now it’s my turn. Would love to open the windows, get out a chute, and have the dump truck start filling it with dirt! Started out the week feeling pretty good and thinking about the things I wanted to accomplish.

It started to snow and then rain.

Noah Called

I felt like my world had been turned upside down since all I did was mop up and wash and dry old towels and bedspreads.

Upside Down

But I kept on keeping on and hoping for a break.

I'm Not Tired Are You Tired

I was often wishing for this.

Momma Will Make It Better

Unfortunately, Mom is with the good Lord. So I had to figure out a way to stop this.

The Catterbury Tales

Get a sump pump, they said. It would be good, they said. Yup, this is how I looked while I’m putting it together.

This is How You Look Right Now

Now it’s put together and will hopefully make life a little easier. As this fellow says:

One of Those Weeks

I now sound like this every time I move!

I'm Not Old

I hope next week is better!

Black, Furry, Loveable. Are You Superstitious?

Standard

Monday was Black Cat Appreciation Day meant to raise awareness of dark-coated felines and encourage people around the United States to adopt them. It’s also a chance to debunk myths that can have very real adoption consequences for black cats.. Some studies suggest 13% of American adults are superstitious when it comes to black cats — and that the perceived bad luck probably prevents them from adopting one.

Having more black cats on an adoption floor is a common scenario, however, because black coats are a dominant genetic trait. Out of all coats — black, gray, white, orange, brown, Calico and everything in between — black-furred cats make up about 33% of the shelter cat population. Remember, black is a color and not a breed.

Today is Be An Angel Day. Believe it or not, this is very hard for some cats to do. They can be so cuddly, affectionate, and loving, BUT then another behavior can appear. Let’s see what happens then.

I think you get the picture now. Pardon the pun! At any rate, cats will display many behaviors because:
