Who doesn't love Thanksgiving? One day out of the year, where you get a pass to fill your plate and indulge. (No regrets allowed) It's tops in most people's books. In our household, though, Thanksgiving means appeasing four VERY demanding little beasts.
With Squeak, we always have questions. How much does he hear? Is he going to clock his noggin when he overestimates that jumps onto the chair? Is he crying because he woke from a nightmare? When it comes to his memory, though, we know the answer: it resets within a few minutes. With one exception: he always remembers where his seasonal sleeping spots are.
Tonks is - without a doubt - the WORST Personal Assistant in the world. And I figured stealing my chair, thieving office supplies, and knocking thing off the desk and shelves counted as the worst she could throw at me. But, no. This little demon insists on being present for interviews and phone calls. And then she takes over. Because, naturally, the world is all about her.
We took Juniper for her first swim - with amazing success!
I've personalized my writing space to maximize the creative energy. And Tonks has, on occasion, felt the need to rearrange my toys and mini stuffed animals as part of her "Assistant" duties. But ever since the arrival of one special addition, she's developed a laser focus - and it's hilarious.
This month marks the one-year anniversary of our battles with Firefly's eyes. Unbelievably, we've made it through to the other side. And while he may not have the same face he did before the troubles started, we'll take the plateau.
During the holidays, you'll find plenty of memes detailing cat destruction. People come up with unique methods for preventing cats from getting at Christmas trees. It's funny - if you're not the one dealing with the problem.
Greyhounds are notoriously lazy dogs. You often see pictures of them sprawling on beds and couches. Since Juniper refused to figure out how to use her back legs, though, she's never been one of them. Now that's changed.
Like any other parent, my phone is filled to the brim with pictures of my "kids." And Tonks dominates those photos since she joined the household. The little bugger is the most photogenic cat I've ever owned. She even poses for the camera, the ham. It's kind of hysterical.
Juniper is our Greyhound - or, really, our biggest cat (she doesn't know the difference). The first member of the family we rescued as a couple, she's also the first dog the cats experienced. Don't worry - they corrupted her pretty quickly.
