National Black Cat Appreciation Day

In honor of National Black Cat Appreciation Day I present to you, my Black Cat named Shadow. Isn't he handsome? Yes, he's scowling because he detests being photographed. But, that's the deal. If you live with me you automatically agree to have your picture taken multitudinous times....

Kitty Placemats!

Lately, feeding time for Darwin and Shadow has been like slopping the hogs.

To me cats have always been delicate and dainty eaters. Nay, not these two. Shadow started it first by using his right front paw to reach into his bowl scoop food out, put it on the floor then eat it. Of course that created a mess and attracted cocarachas......

If that wasn't bad enough Darwin started doing the same thing. What was I to do?

I just happened to have a couple of fancy place mats which I tried out. Voilà! No more feeding time mess!

P.S.  Yes, those are my loud black and pink running shoes........

Mr. Dreadlock Back

I've been waiting for a long time to do this. You see, because Darwin has thick fur and is unable to groom his back, he had a series of dreadlock like mats on his back.

I was perfectly willing to groom him with a brush but he would take numerous swings at me (claws out) or attempt to bite both me and said brush.

So today at feeding time I took the radical step of giving him a hair cut. While he was occupied with tuna, I took a scissors and cut all of the unsightly clumps off.

Now he has this nice bald strip down his back but no more dreadlocks....
