Hey There, Jellybean!

(sing to tune of “Hey There! Georgy Girl”)

Hey There! Jellybean
You are in the way, can’t see my screen.
I’ve got work to do, I can’t see
The laptop there, behind you!

Hey There! Jellybean
Stepping on the keyboard left and right..
How did you delete that file? Now how do I get it back?
You’re always bumbling around, you just can’t make up your mind..
Stop shedding on my computer and MOVE…your little butt.

Hey There! Jellybean
You’re my bestest buddy in the world
You’re so full of love for me and
oh what you mean to me…
The world must see my sweet Jellybean!

Hey There! Jellybean
Guess I’ll get my work done later on..
Life is lovely and I see, you can’t push your loved ones away.
Just stay right here,I’ll hold you here on my lap
It’s time for getting down off my desk a little bit.

Meet the Pets! Bobbi Cat!

Bobbi Cat

Bobbi is a very, very sweet but very skittish little cat that we caught outside, having been feeding her for several weeks. She also has no tail, but we are not sure if she is a Manx or just simply a kitty born with no tail. She doesn’t even have a stub..there is nothing there! But what a cutie she is. You have to hold her an extremely weird and particular way, almost like a violin, so that she can rub her chin on your shoulder, which she does with great relish. 🙂

Success Stories: Fizzgig!

This was Fiz when I first found him. I was feeding some feral cats at a station I have behind a restaurant. There is an uncovered storm drain in the woods, and I heard a pitiful screaming coming from that area. He was too tiny to climb out by himself, and I knew his mom couldn’t get him out either, because of the smooth cement sides. It was about six feet deep. I climbed in, not 100% sure how I was going to get back out, but I had to do something.

Fingerprint Follies: Allergy Season!

FF  4_14_2015

In truth,in our household we aren’t allergic to much; however, we have had a horrible pollen season just starting up, and it’s starting to affect Steve pretty badly!

Did you know that cats can be allergic to pollen as well? Cats that suffer from pollen allergies have an immune system deficiency, and the immune system doesn’t recognize the pollens and considers them as a threat, and the body produces histamines. The histamines are substances that will be responsible for the occurrence of allergic reactions on the skin or other areas.

Goodbye, Mr. Iz.

1508642_10202640739557289_1562227426141974086_n

We had to say goodbye to one of our most dynamic and entertaining residents yesterday, Mr. Iz. he had a large cancerous growth in his bladder and had been having urinary tract issues for months. Once we learned about the growth, we decided it was time for him to have a peaceful ending with no pain.

He was one of the sloppiest eaters in the bunch, and always had something to say in his loooong, squawky meow. We often called him “Mr. Izzapants”.

He was a brave boy right to the end, and we will miss him dearly.

Where’s Wilkie?

WP_20150330_006

Wilkie stays in the master bedroom during the day. He has to be isolated from other cats because he’s completely unable to get along with others, and not even in a mean way–he wants to play so very badly, but his idea of playing is biting other cats on the skull. He was very sickly as a baby and pretty much abandoned by his mother outdoors when a friend rescued him; I am fairly certain that his mother knew something wasn’t “right” about him.
Otherwise, he is a sweet and cuddly boy who loves human attention. He also loves to bury himself in my plush dinosaur collection. When I can’t find him, I remember to look there.
