Smokey Comes Closer…

I’ve given our little foster kitten some ‘Rescue Remedy’ to help calm her down and it has helped quite a bit. She’s come much closer though I still haven’t tried to pet her. She was purring like mad earlier and … Continue reading

A New (but temporary) Addition

I have enough animals.  If I were to get any more animals children would start throwing rocks at my car.  I might even start to smell like the crazy cat lady (assuming I don’t already).  I don’t need any more … Continue reading

Oh dear oh dear oh dear.  I never meant to be away for such a long time… whoops.  You’d think after this long I’d have something of substance to write about too, wouldn’t you?  Alas, ’tis an empty head that … Continue reading
