Kitties, Cabinets, Car & Cat-tip

(taken summer 2009)
Friday's always fly by. I just met some of the most adorable cats that I will be caring for starting tomorrow. Stopped off at the pet store to fill up the ol' cat bag with kitty delights. I have also made some cat toys so I am well-equiped to keep everyone happy & well-exercised. I will be caring for Lucy again who I have a very soft spot for as she is over 20 years now. Oh how I love the old cats. She is a Siamese and reminds me so much of my Ginny. I will be caring for her for 3 weeks and plan to spend a lot of time with her. When cats are alone while being cared for it is always nice to bring along a book and spend extra time with them on your lap. The cats love it when you read out loud. It really relaxes them. The cat-sitter might even snooze.
Do you remember when I posted caring for Smudge and how much she loved it when I read out loud. She would  wak! me when I would stop so I read a whole book in a couple of days while caring for her. The Cat Who books are fun to read.

  These little scalliwags are lots of fun. Bud & Chase will be under my care for a week and they will need lots of toys to keep them busy. Their favorite is the ping-pong ball.

                        This hangs in my kitchen. Probably the only award my home will ever get. :(
 See my happy dog. He's been feeling great since he had his ears cleaned out and checked by the vet again. I hope we can find a cure for his ear problems. Other than that he's 100%.

Cat-tip-for-the-day=^..^=Love your cat. They make us crazy but no mistake about it, they make us better people.

Here it is the weekend. I'll be kitty-sittin' & cabinet huntin' & we now have another car. Yippee! I hope I soon have another dish cabinet because I was out again this week adopting homeless dishes. I couldn't walk by them.What if they never got a home? What would become of them?

Happy Weekend, my friends.


  1. I love how you enjoy taking care of these wonderful cats! I know what you mean about a cat making us better people. I am glad someone else adopts all those lonely dishes! I need another china cabinet also.

  2. All of these lovely kitties and their families are so lucky to have you care for them...My cats make me so happy, I certainly feel they make me a better person!...Congratulations on the new car and the new dishes!...Have a fun weekend, Deb!

  3. Not only do Cats make us better people, they keep us humble. At least, mine keep me humble...and hopping to their every whim.

  4. OOoo....I want that cute picture you have in your kitchen! I've never see one before! Love it!!


  5. What cute kitties, Deb! I never thought about reading to my staff! what shall I choose? lol Thanks for the birthday wishes for Baby Kitty! Have a great weekend!...hugs...Debbie

  6. What lucky kitties to have someone like you come care for them while they are home alone! Around here reading books mean laying on laps but we don't read out loud. Might have to try that sometime! Glad your dog is feeling better too!
