Jas and Fluffy Butt

Jas and Fluffy Butt

Here is a lovely little guinea pig….in a canoe….with a paddle. ¬†Here is what my cousin said when she entered this photo:

“This is Jas and Fluffy Butt. Fluffy Butt is wearing a feather headdress and accessorizing with a canoe paddle. I unfortunately missed snapping him in the canoe, but this was before digital cameras and back then I apparently only took one picture of anything because I was stingy with my film.”

I hope she doesn’t mind that I took a little creative liberty and gave Fluffy Butt the canoe ride that should have been….or at least should have been captured for the memories.

Oh, just in case you cared or guessed…I am going to draw all the entries I’ve gotten so far….so keep coming to see yours if you entered! ūüôā

Let the fun begin!

Oh, hey!

Oh, hey!

Here is winner number one….and the only reason I decided to draw this first is because it’s my friend Dave’s birthday today and this is his dog. ¬† ¬†Happy Birthday! ¬†You are another year old have have a weird dog that likes to pose on the back of chairs.

Don’t worry, I think we’ll have several winners….keep posted on¬†the¬†posts!

It’s a contest! Sort of….

Time to get excited!

Time to get excited!

If are already a fan of my Facebook page (the link is conveniently located up in the right corner there) you may have seen that I have added a wee bit of a contest. ¬†And here it is: Go there and leave a funny pet photo. ¬†The one that makes me laugh the hardest will become a post! ¬†Oh, let’s be real; I’ll probably make a few of them.

So if you love your pet and you love the idea of maybe winning a cartoon/cattoon of your very own posted here on notacrazycatlady, please join me on my Facebook page!!

Weeeee?

Weeeee?

So I was browsing around Reddit, as I am oft to do, and on the front page was this picture. ¬†RE. DIC. U. LUS. ¬†Yes, I know that is not spelled anywhere close but it’s just simply that ridiculous. ¬† Here is the¬†original picture. ¬†Hold on to your hats.

 

I miss Mad Men

Adam's favorite line

Adam's favorite line

I love the show Mad Men and kind of….no, really really miss it. ¬†I know. ¬†Lame. ¬†But it’s that good and I really like¬†the¬†characters and want to know what happens next!

This is Adam’s favorite character and his favorite line when they are at dumb Sally’s school festival for the eclipse and Don just isn’t having it.

You know your cat is old when…

Time for infomercials, D!

So I’m pretty sure Duncan’s had this less than thick hair from his eye to his ear but Lee decided to call it a receding hairline today – and Duncan a senior cat now. ¬† Sorry Duncan; I think it’s time to accept those gray hairs and that you’re losing hair. ¬†Maybe it’s time for you to start thinking about retirement.

Adam is a manly man.

Victory!

Victory!

Ever since Adam learned how to use a chainsaw, he’s been wanting to cut the crap out of everything. ¬†The neighbor’s tree had a huge limb fall down but it was still hanging from the tree. ¬†It’s been like this since maybe July and since July Adam has wanted to chop it down. ¬† Everyone kind of discouraged this because no one wanted Adam to die or get smashed by a huge ass tree limb or whatever.

Well, after months of waiting (like 2.5) today was his day.

And he defeated that broken tree limb like a champ.  Huzzah!

I literally just used this as a motivational tool.

Standard
Go get a shower right now or I will eat your head.

"Go get a shower right now or I will eat your head."

So I’m hungry right now. ¬†Really really hungry. ¬†Not starving hungry but I’ve forgone some snackage because I knew we were going out to eat with my brother. ¬†Adam just got home from work and didn’t get ready fast enough for me so I told him to watch as I was drawing and proceeded to threaten him with, “Go get a shower right now or I will eat your head.” ¬†And yes, that is a floating desk.

Sorry for the Facebook-like status update to this post. ¬†But it just happened. ¬†Literally…in the literal sense, not the figurative sense that has seemingly overtaken the original function of the word.

So I asked Adam what I should draw today….

All fear and quiver before Unicorn and RoboCat!

All fear and quiver before Unicorn and RoboCat!

And he said a unicorn on a cat. ¬†I don’t know it he really meant the other way around but I went with it and added my own twist of a robot cat that I name RoboCat. ¬†I honestly just whipped this up in a couple of minutes because I’m tired and ready for bed and I don’t quite know how it ended up looking so pleasing to me. ¬†Perhaps this is good karma return for sitting and grading projects since the minute I got home pretty much. ¬†Yay me!

Oh, we’re just sailing on a boat.

This is a real photo of us on a boat.

Oh, hello.

This time last year we were¬†returning from our honeymoon (I think….give or take a week or whatever). ¬†We went on a windjammer for a week. ¬†This isn’t what the ship looked like but I like it all the same. ¬†Even if it’s cold and bit more uninhabited seeming than I expected, Maine was beautiful.

Once upon a time, I was a bowling champ.

Standard
Oooo, I'm international now.

Oooo, I'm international now.

This is legit.This is legit.

So I was rummaging (ooo, I like that word and I haven’t used it for a while) through some old papers and work my parents had saved from when I was a little kid.

You may all remember that I have become one of the newest members of a league bowling team. ¬†I may have mentioned here that I suck at bowling. ¬†It’s true.

I’d like to share with you the data that supports my lack of bowling prowess. ¬†Game 1 = a score of 76. ¬†Game 2 = a score of 80. ¬†Game 3 = (and I kid you not) a score of 48. ¬†48!?!? ¬†What am I, five years old?

Well, I think this might improve my morale knowing that in second grade I was the day camp bowling champ during World Adventure Week.

Welcome to Apple Season!

Standard
Hello, Fall!

Hello, Fall!

We got to go to an apple festival (in all honesty, it was more of a mini festival, but wahtevs) and enjoy all that fall has to bring. ¬†YUM! ¬†Delicious apples galore, apple products, and spices to make the grossest of days cozy and comfy. ¬†I don’t really have a favorite season and can just appreciate the season we’re in and what it brings…so this is getting me excited for Autumn! Who’s with me?

I tried…

Maybe if he loses weight?

So their amazing cat climber has a little tube as the middle layer. ¬†I’ve been really interested in getting them in that tube and succeeded yesterday by putting treats in the middle of it. ¬†Duncan fell for it, hook, line, and sinker. ¬†The only problem was it was an INCREDIBLY tight squeeze. ¬†I suppose I understand why they haven’t been hanging out in there now.

Hahah, it's a pun...get it?

Hahah, it's a pun...get it?

So, by request, here is a picture of a kitty from another blog, Jimmy Chew. ¬†I found this picture and thought it would be funny. ¬†One, because it’s cute. ¬†Two, because of the pun. ¬†Jimmy Chew….and the shoes are Jimmy Choo. ¬†Get it? ¬†Baahahah. ¬†This is the closest I will ever get to a pair of those shoes…

If there’s one thing I’m not good at…..

Standard
Yes, this is my preferred technique.

Yes, this is my preferred technique.

It’s this. ¬†I suck at bowling. ¬†Like, I get better scores rolling the ball granny-style. ¬†That is neither a lie nor and¬†exaggeration; just the sad honest truth. ¬†But we’re in a bowling league! ¬†Today is our first game. ¬†Hahaha, wish me luck.

Here is why I am a winner today.

Standard
WINNER!!

WINNER!!

That was why I was a winner today. ¬†Aaaaaaand, not just once, but thrice. ¬†If that didn’t make sense, I’ll break it down for you….

  1. I pulled into the gas station at EXACTLY 370.0 miles on this last gas tank.  No lie.
  2. I filled up my tank with EXACTLY 10.000 gallons of gas. ¬†(But it was actually 10.004….but what’s a thousandth of a gallon between friends?)
  3. This all means that my car got 37 miles per gallon!  WOOOO!
It’s the simple things, folks.

Here’s a good way to keep a cat busy.

So if you have a cat that needs something to do, I suggest this: hide food bits and/or treats around the house for them to find. ¬†Be aware, some cats are dumb and might not find all the treats so come up with a plan so that you don’t find food bits days/months/whatever later. ¬†They are pretty persistent, though, so it might not even be an issue.

Happy Anniversary to me!….uh…I mean us!

This is real.

So last year today Adam and I took the plunge and got hitched. ¬†And we’re still here to tell the tale.

I drew the above drawing based on the above photo. ¬†A few words….

  • I was trying to make us look a little creepy in the drawing, I didn’t think we had bad teeth and saggy eyes.
  • The photo date is completely wrong. ¬†I don’t know why my cousin’s camera thought it was Christmas of 2008, but I suppose this picture is a gift…… ¬†….. ….. …..pun intended.
  • Whenever I saw my cousin throughout that day, he kept talking about the “big chair” and I was so confused. ¬†Then, I understood. ¬†And it was magnificent.

So happy day to us, Adam. ¬†Let’s go get steak.

“I’ll meow and get her attention to you. You sit by our food bowls so she knows we want food.”

This spells trouble.

Near live action posting; this just happened not too long ago.  These cats are getting too smart for their own good.
