Caught In The Act Of…..Grooming!


Of course, we know how cats love to groom.  They spend many hours of the day slee… er, grooming.

Today, we have Rusty and Patches “doing their thing.”  And I caught them in the act!


Scott McGillivray’s Kitten


I have been a fan of Scott’s for years.  He is star of the popular TV show, “Income Property.”  I have to admit that many years ago, I would have loved to buy real estate for income purpose, but I didn’t have Scott to rely upon to wisely direct me.

It turns out that Scott is a man of many faces, so-to-speak.  He loves to organic garden with his family and has a show about preparing dishes made with garden fresh produce.

But, I have slipped away from the purpose of this post:  Scott’s kitten:


Shake On Command


All three of my cats know how to respond to the command, “Shake.”  I finally was able to get a photo of Patches obliging me.

Isn’t she sweet, or what?

The Thing In A Bag, Starring Patches

I was rummaging through a drawer yesterday, and came across a toy that I had forgotten about.  It’s the infamous “Thing In A Bag.”

Patches seemed interested.  Take a look:

A Good Start To The Day


I have played around with my iPhone video some more.  And, even though the view is narrow – more so than if I were using a REAL video camera – I’m satisfied with the results.

Here is another one starring – of course – Rusty!

Hope you like the positive way in which he starts his day in the patio.

By the way, Romeo is enjoying his morning, too.  He’s watching our “resident” squirrel outside, who likes to tease Romeo with the antics that makes a cat take notice.  Maybe one day, I’ll be able to catch that little rodent!  With the camera, of course!

You are welcome to share the video on your Twitter or Facebook account!



Our First Starring Role in Video


Hi Everyone!!  We (Rusty and Patches) welcome you all to our first video.  It is a very special one for two reasons:

  • It’s our FIRST ONE; and
  • We are participating in one of our FAVORITE pastimes:  petting!!

This is Mom’s first experience with video production also, so we ask that you please excuse her for accidentally allowing her finger to be videoed too!

Here it is:


Cats ARE Smarter Than Dogs ….. See Below:


Well, we’ve heard it before, many times, and dog owners will always protest that their dogs are the smartest and much smarter than cats.

If you click on the video’s arrow below, you will witness the proof positive.  CATS RULE!!

Now, dog owners, what do you have to say about that?  Comments from cat guardians are also welcomed!



Rusty is the most “vocal” of the three – literally and figuratively.

Can you guess what he is asking for in this photo?



Attention.  🙂


For The Love Of…..Boxes


It’s a wonder to me that boxes are the best item of interest to my cats.  And most others, I’m sure.

Boxes are the cheapest and most available toy ever!

Rusty, Romeo and Patches never disappoint when it comes to showing how interested they are when a new box comes into the house.
