So it's testing season in schools these days and all that makes me think about is how BOOOOORING it is. I have to administer the tests and pretty much just sit there and stare at the kids for 3 hours a day or so. This goes on for 3 days. Blegh. But it is my... Continue Reading →
I will let you interpret this angry cat drawing as you will, but it is not likely that it will be reappearing (just in case it was too scary for you). Just a scary cat moment. 🙂 Rawr.
So I forget what sparked this but Adam had read some funny thing about old guys working out at the gym in street clothes/awkward outfits who do a millions reps with a million pounds. True story. So since I've been on a mega workout kick, I will honor this and all the other old guys... Continue Reading →
This weekend 2 years ago, Adam and I got engaged. He surprised me with a visit to Cleveland when I was in town and we walked to my favorite park, which, if you recall is the same one I loved to bury fish in. It was all sweet and lovely and everything, but it was... Continue Reading →
Adam is a really good critter getter. Not only that but he is humane with it, too. What a keeper. Once we had a huge wasp hanging out by a window. No way was this guy getting out the door - just too dumb and uncoordinated to make it to the open door 3 feet... Continue Reading →
Smudge is really kind of excitable. I won't get into all the details, because he might get embarrassed (Adam, I think you know what I'm talking about) but I will share this. I read once that someone created the question mark based on curious cats and their tails. While I really can't verify the veracity of this... Continue Reading →
I have another best friend who lives in the magical land of Florida. Her name is Maryland. Sorry...Marilyn. (Sometimes people call her that...really?!) Sometimes people also call her Merlin...like her boyfriend Atul. I love that he calls her that. Well, anyway my friend Marilyn/Merlin can be silly (she is my friend after all! Fun story... Continue Reading →
As I think I mentioned before, Adam and I will be moving back to beautiful Cleveland (cough, cough). Adam is actually already there with the cats while I have moved in with my madre for the two months I have until my job ends. When we were getting the apartment ready to pack up and...

Cat Cat can fluff up at least twice his size upon being startled by the tiniest insignificant sound! Usually he will also sprint around aimlessly fueled by his hair pouf! That is all.
I love fruit. It completes my dining experience. I really could eat it aaaaaaaaaaall the time if it was available to me. Yes, I would be making more frequent trips to the restroom but I would be happy. Recently I bought a bag of those cutie clementines and THEY. WERE. UNEQUIVOCALLY. THE. BEST. I'VE. EVER. EATEN.... Continue Reading →
When the weather started getting really hot last summer, Adam and I had a brilliant idea. Let's give the cats haircuts. Now, I can already hear you saying, "But that's not what you do for cats." You'd be wrong. Our friend had a cat with long hair who got a "lion cut" in the summer... Continue Reading →
If Smudge could choose a career, he might choose becoming spelunker. Why? Because he likes to burrow in blankets. However, he is an elitist spelunker. He will only burrow in Adam's blankets. Whenever I lift my covers and attempt to coax him in lovingly, he gets a bit interested and excited, comes about an inch from... Continue Reading →
One of my best friends Emily just had a baby this winter. She's the first of my close high school friends to have a baby so I'm excited to be "Aunt" Lindsay. Maybe I'll just let her call me Aunt Notacrazycatlady. Either will do. In honor of this baby, here is a cartoon. Little baby... Continue Reading →
Sooooooo, this one still stings. If you remember from before, I really liked Siamese cats in middle school and wrote two research papers on them. Much better than about angels and komodo dragons. In eighth grade (maybe sixth grade....I can't remember), I went to drop off some overdue library books about Siamese cats that I'd... Continue Reading →
Not too long ago, I posted my plan for a cat stroller that I will someday use. About a month ago, Adam and I went camping and it got me thinking. What if the cats could come camping with us!? This was a brilliant idea. For hikes we would create some sort of meshed backpack... Continue Reading →
Yes, you read correctly! It's a plot twist! Duncan is currently diabetes-free! No, this wasn't all a prank. Here...I'll explain. So we had to send Duncan to get tested after about 2 weeks of our treatment and changing his food. He had to go overnight at the vet's so they could monitor him and... Continue Reading →
After hearing about Duncan's diagnosis with cat diabetes, it looked like we were going to have to tackle this thing. I became a mini-expert in diabetes in cats and Adam and I had a whole routine figured out. We had to feed them pretty much EXACTLY every 12 hours, giving D his shot of Lantus... Continue Reading →
Yes, it's true. My little meower was diagnosed with diabetes. Our vet told us when we took him in that it would be something with his kidneys or diabetes, and about $300's worth of tests later, we found out that D had the 'beetus. In case you don't get the reference, this cattoon is in... Continue Reading →
We are nearing the climax of this story, where things all will soon change. D began a new bathroom regimen where every morning, or really any time he needed to use the litter box, he wouldn't use the litter box. He would use the tub. Sounds gross, and it kind of is gross, but it is 500%... Continue Reading →
After the bad breath and dandruff, we started noticing another trend in Duncan. He was losing weight and looking faaaabulous....minus the bad breath, dandruff, and recent emergence of his ribs. I was trying to give a few options to describe his weight in this cattoon - if you want to be ironic and somewhat in... Continue Reading →
Gross cat breath. Check. Duncan needs a dentist or just some malt toothpaste. But what's this? Dandruff? Now Duncan used to have a little dandruff here and there. Nothing vomit-worthy but definitely there at times. This time his dandruff was REALLY bad. I even bought this dandruff spray stuff that you spray on his fur... Continue Reading →
I have found success! This video is a little long for what it is, but it cracks me up. What a nut, that Duncan! So anyway, the inspiration for the cattoon from a few days ago. Duncan and has his strawberries...a cat and his passion.
Last year around this time, I can't really recall when - that's what happens when tragedy strikes sometimes, Duncan was getting weird. This included getting awful cat breath. His breath was so bad that we decided we needed to get him cat toothpaste. And we did. It was "malt flavored," whatever that's supposed to mean.... Continue Reading →
So I was out of town this weekend and thought I wrote a post for today but apparently didn't. So here it is! Duncan LOVES strawberries. Whenever I eat them he is always there licking the leftover bits I don't eat. Weirdo. This predilection for nomming on strawberries was taken to a new level when I brought some... Continue Reading →
As the title says, I totally never wanted a pony as a present (although I did horseback riding for a pretty long while there). However, I imagined what it would have been like if I did want a pony. And it would have been awesome.
My cousin Kaitlyn was flying to/from college (sorry I might have to make part of this story up since I don't remember all the details) and told me this story of despair, embarrassment, and stereotyping bumbling dads. Pretty much the lesson learned here is if you are passing a baby, make sure you know if they... Continue Reading →
Sooooooo, I saw a tv show a long time ago when I was growing up where a house had these crazy awesome cat paths around the ceilings with little cutouts for cats to walk through from room to room. A bit excessive? Perhaps. Completely awesome and forever embedded in my brain as something I want... Continue Reading →
My cousin Kaitlyn sent me this and I ended up watching several times and was crying from laughing so hard. I am pretty sure it's a sincere video, albeit ridiculous, that has been edited to be even more ridiculous...and it's my new favorite thing. If I was Oprah I'd give you all a copy. I...

When we were home visiting Adam's family last spring there was a beetle epidemic. Lee, Adam's brother, was getting irate and flustered with all the beetles and came downstairs to declare his displeasure with the creatures. This is what it would look like if there really were Beatles in his room instead of beetles, like we all... Continue Reading →
When I was in middle school, I had a friend who was pretty awesome. She was smart, had a hamster, was creative, liked fairies like I did, and was strange enough to be my friend. We were like two peas in a pod during that short time when we were friends. Once we even set... Continue Reading →
Adam had a dog that was found at the motocross track he was racing at , and this poor pup was all flea-bitten, mangy, and had no fur. His warm-hearted mom decided that they needed to rescue this dude, so they did. Many vet trips later he was better, but still virtually hairless - but... Continue Reading →
