Find the Kitty Friday: She Likes Apples

October 12, 2012


Apple DEVICES, that is. šŸ™ Look at that guilty face!


She has chewed through FOUR of my Apple iPad and iPhone charging cables. BAD kitty! Here I am charging my device, and she’s sneaking up to get at it. SO bad!

Find the Kitty Friday: Well She Tried

September 14, 2012

She’s not a baby anymore! *sniff*


Everything was crammed into the corner as we are working on the bookcase units. She just loves the excitement, and always has to be “in” on the activity. I have no idea why she crawled underneath her cardboard scratchy-toy-thingy. She actually got stuck, believe it or not! LOL

The project is coming along, slooooowly. It’s not very fun, sawing and hammering in a finished living room. The dust goes everywhere and the sawdust gets into the area rug. I think we’re do for one of those fancy
round rock texas upholstery cleaning” jobs, too.

Well, it must be done. I still have to build our little fireplace/mantel unit before it gets too cold. The summer just flew by!

Find the Kitty: She’s Sew Sneaky!

August 31, 2012



She absolutely loved it under the fabric. Not sure why, maybe she wanted to “be” where we were. It was very difficult to get anything done with her inside the reams of cloth! When I plopped some extra fabric on the floor, she ignored it. Go figure.


Have a happy weekend, friends!

Find the Kitty Friday: Towel Talk

August 3, 2012


Oh, she’s such a sly little thing. Where oh where can she be?!




The towel was slightly damp and it’s been hotter than blazes around here, so no wonder she didn’t want to come out.

Sorry I haven’t been doing much here lately. We’ve been traveling and I’ve been working a lot. But we’ve got some very exciting renovations and remodeling planned next week. I’m going to re-do my living room decor and finally build the 17-foot long, built-in bookcase set. It’s my first bookcase, so it’ll be interesting. We’re also sewing curtains and going to paint the room with a more shocking color scheme. Cant wait til its done!

Da Baby is Four Years Old Today!

July 26, 2012


Livvy 5

Oh they grow up SO fast!

Livvy and Daddy3

Actually, I don’t know when her birthday is, exactly. We got her in September, and her owner said she was 8 weeks old, which makes her birthday week this week. I figured today is a good a birthday as any, especially since it’s mine, too.

Scratch Post 1

I chose her from the litter because she was the “runt,” and she was quieter than her crazy sister and brothers. After taking her home, however, she quickly became Queen of the Castle. I think perhaps the reason she was so small and quiet in the litter is because she didn’t get enough to eat. Once we plied her with roast beef and fish and canned cat food, she quickly became more energetic.

Livvy Discovers Paper 1

She is a very unusual kitty. Besides being a polydactyl Tabby Point Siamese, she has a unique personality. She follows me around the house all day long like a little dog. She “talks” to us in squeaks and pulses, and she knows a lot of words and responds to them. She’s less of a pet and more like a family member. She’s the most unique cat I have ever had.


Happy Birthday to my Baby. šŸ™‚

Livvy and Her Teddy

May 16, 2012


It’s been raining buckets lately so we’ve been unable to continue our work on the gardens. We HAVE been hacking away at the weeds, though! The progress is very good, but I can’t get photos because… it’s raining. The yard is looking like Brazil, my son says. All this rain inspires the plants to grow amazingly large and full. Let’s hope we can stave off the Amazon River this year… I’m praying no more of those Hundred Year Floods. We’ve had our quota for the next 800 years, I’d say.

Because I am photo-less, I’ll treat you to a cute little video of Livvy and her Teddy. Whenever Livvy is feeling grouchy and wants to attack our feet, we stick Teddy under her nose. She can take out her frustrations on him. And she does.

Find the Kitty: Yew Mews

May 11, 2012


My yews are, um, a BIT overgrown. My excuse is that it’s been raining cats and dogs and we haven’t had a chance to clip them. but the real reason is that I’m TERRIBLE at pruning shrubs. I leave the job to the husband, but lately he’s been working 6 to 7 days a week. The extra dough is so very nice, but the yard is a disaster, lol.

ANYWAY… can you find the kitty?
