No Longer a Kitten

Hard to believe Lucy celebrated her first birthday on 9-17-2021. We brought her home exactly 8 months ago. Two-thirds of her short life, has been with us. Sad when they start to get bigger and not a cute little bundle of fur as when you bring them home. We all know baby animals are so adorably cute, hard to resist. She was such a tiny little kitten, just a handful. Home coming.

 

And if you’re familiar with Siamese, you know they never quite grow up. Now she is still a handful of mischief. Do love every minute of it… well maybe not  sometimes as you can read below. But keeping them healthy and inspired with fun things to do, they can bring you hours of laughter and joy.

 

She has graced our home with laughter and love. A happy, comical cat, and also mischievous.

For the love of a cat. You pour your heart out and never look back. I love cats. Never a commitment to take lightly.

 

To bring one into my home, it becomes their forever home. A hard decision. Do I devote myself to this little creature for the next 18 years?

 

So, I pick wisely and trust I haven’t made a mistake. A promise to the little four-legged one. We will work through whatever life throws at us. Will never abandon you, no matter what. Continue reading

Rodent Killers Felis Catus, blue point Siamese cat that destroys cat toys

Lucy “Little Tornado”

 

You’d think that an animal with the scientific name of “Felis catus”, might just have killer instincts.

 

Years ago, presented with an embarrassing statement of proclaiming… “No self-respecting mouse would dare enter my house with 5 cats.” A few days later, a mouse scurried across my living room floor.

 

Devastated that at least one of the five wasn’t in hot pursuit. Nope. They ignored the intruder. Cat dialogue; “He’s been here a while. Besides, he doesn’t eat much.”

 

My first cat was a fierce hunter. Taking down birds, mice, gophers, and even a pet rat that escaped. It was white, so I’m sure it once was a pet.

Carpets, Cats, and Sofa Cushions

Bissell Shampooer uphosltery cleaned cushions and Siamese cats found a way to play in them while they were drying

Cats enjoying their new jungle.

Ah kids, the carpet stains remain from the previous cat. We tried cleaning it and yet it still comes back.

 

So serious stuff now. I have read to clean with hot water first. Sure, just as you might pre-soak a stain before you throw it in the machine for laundering.

 

I dragged out the shampooer to proceed with the past due project. Only to find although it ran, no water came out. Hmm… dry shampooing is not what I had in mind. Tried the upholstery attachment, thinking maybe the water might divert to that and I can jump start the brushes at the bottom.
