Greatest Videos — March 2013

I thought it might be ‘cool’ if I linked a few of the best videos I’ve seen lately. Although you may have seen them previously, you definitely deserve this video break. PS, I am aware that probably only the Taylor Swift ones is recent and I have come to terms. Kitty Jumping Fail with AWOLNATION – SAIL soundtrack Taylor Swift – I Knew You Were Trouble (Goat Version) And, not exactly something I’ve seen just this month, but always a classic: Whose Line is it … Continue reading

New Puppy Pictures!

I promised them, and I almost never break a promise made on my blog.  Here they are: Cute pictures of our new puppy, Junior. So, a bit about our new German boxer puppy: We got him at 8 weeks old He came from a litter of 7 He’s got 4 paws He has 1 natural tail (not docked) and 2 natural ears [and we like him that way! In Germany, they don’t dock ’em anymore… I won’t start a debate, because really it’s the internet] … Continue reading

How to Bathe Your Cat Without First Buying Your Burial Plot

Ever wonder how to bathe your cat without having your eyes scratched out of their eye-holes? Like most cats, Rico’s biggest fear is water.  Well, when you have a cat who sheds day-in/day-out who hasn’t had a bath in say, years, and he’s been staying up nights to meow you awake lately, it seems to me that indicates it’s bath time.  And you know what?  This cat of mine did surprisingly well, aside from the fact he’s been licking himself for an hour since.  A … Continue reading

Free & Easy Cat Hammock Bed DIY

Cats love to sleep.  One common bed you’ve probably seen at SPCAs and cat rescues is the cat hammock.  When I saw this cat hammock on Pinterest today, I thought “what a great idea for a cat hammock at home.” We had tried putting them in Casey’s old crate before, but for some reason the cats didn’t like the idea of walking into a metal cage.  Maybe I could’ve thought that one through better. So I thought, good idea!  A cozy option they’ll enjoy without … Continue reading

Oliver’s 7th Life

Hoping all day long that our beautiful Oliver is doing well after his first aid yesterday.  Poor freaking cat.  I’ve lost track of how many times he’s hurt himself over the years.  He seems to be eating and acting normally, so despite the nastiness of his latest injury, I have a good amount of hope for him.  We’ll visit tomorrow and have an update.

TED Talks & ADD

Ah, crap.  It happened again. Does anyone else feel like they’ve been Rick-rolled when someone sends them a link to a TED Talk? I just can’t commit 10 minutes at a time to anything these days.  They’re such good segments, very informative, thought-provoking and usually quite fresh.  So why doesn’t my body want to sit in one spot and listen to these delectable spiels whenever a friend (or foe) informs me that I must watch this video?  I can’t do it!  I can’t.  In the … Continue reading
