Los Gatos















I just realized that I have never posted any pics of the characters who actually run my house.  Of course, they let my husband and I believe we are in charge, but when it comes down to it, we are just mindless robots who do their bidding.  Here they are on their pimp chair.  I could probably make a fur sweater out of all the hair that has collected in its dark crevices.  Is there a market for cat hair sweaters?  We adopted them about 7 months ago, so their past is a little sketchy.  They had to do some things on the street that they aren't proud of but we love them unconditionally and are helping them work through their issues.  They look so innocent don't they?  But I think we are only instruments for their eventual take-over of the world.  I could go on all day about my cats, but I won't.  If you'd like to hear more you can send me a special request and I'd be happy to oblige.  I won't go so far as starting their own blog, which apparently some pet owners do, but they have a special sort of club that I don't think I am hip enough to be a part of.  (I love ending sentences with prepositions!  Hah, take that high school English teachers!)  
It is my second day of being off work and I am already bored.  Plus I think I gained about 5 lbs. from watching so much Food Network.  Now, granted I love those cooking shows, but I can't help thinking that we have an entire channel dedicated to food and cooking. No wonder Americans are viewed as greedy and capitalistic.  Here we are cooking and wasting food for entertainment when there are millions of people in the world who are dying of starvation.  I mean, honestly, unless all that prepared food is going to a soup kitchen, I can only assume it feeds the crew or winds up in the trash bin.  I am not trying to be all righteous, ( I don't think it's even possible) I guess I was just feeling guilty today.  My soapbox was getting a little dusty so I had to clean it off  and give it some love.   Stay tuned for more meaningless rants and raves ...

I just want to rub their tummies! I do love cats - even evil genius cats. I wonder if yours are working in concert with mine. Scary thought, that.

Meanwhile - I don't know if it goes to shelters, but I've heard rumors that food for the cooking shows goes to the audience, the crews, and anyone else who wants to make sure it isn't wasted. That could just be an urban legend, but it helps me sleep better at night so please don't disillusion me!

Shade and Sweetwater,

I luv catz. My cat is 16 years old and bawdy as ever. She is my role model on how to age gracefully.

You can never talk enough about the ones you love. You should have heard me in the days of my Shih Tzu. He was Edward and he was the best thing EVER. I could NOT STOP TALKING about him.

If you find buyers for those cat hair sweaters, please, let me know. I'm sure I could make four or five by just lint rolling my couch!

We have three long haired cats and boy does the fur fly around here. I love them, but damn, are they ever furry!
