You know that song? "Down by the baaaaay, where the watermelons grooooooow, back to my hooooome, I dare not gooooooo. For if I dooooo, my mother will saaaaaaay, 'Have you ever seen a bear combing its hair?' Down by the bay!" Well Hazel thinks it's hilarious and loved when I said, "Have you ever seen...

Well, unfortunately for the cats (and me, and nearly everyone else)......they didn't win the big Powerball lottery. However, I feel like Duncan and Smudge would want to explore what would happen if they became billionaires. Because, really, why not? Didn't everyone have a plan in their heads if when they win? I know I did.... Continue Reading →
I finished off a bag of delicious baby carrots and had the bag sitting on the coffee table...lazy, I know. Anyway, Duncan comes along and begins his ritual display of affection for inanimate objects. Actually as I am typing this he's doing it again. He schmears his head on the object repeatedly and profusely for... Continue Reading →
So I got a pretty cool gift this holiday season - an iPad! I am going to try and draw on it more since I've been a big slacker and haven't done a lot in a long time. Here are a few I made with the Paper app, which is really nice. Plus a fun... Continue Reading →
I titled this "What." This was intentionally not a question but a rhetorical statement (can you even do that?). Duncan KNOWS he is not supposed to march on countertops or tables but he is also stubborn, too smart for his own good, and stubborn. And a jerk. We'll snap and "chuch" him (say the word,... Continue Reading →
I'm in a fat cat phase...but it has NOTHING to do with Duncan's and Smudge's weight. (Now that I've covered myself and they have no idea for my inspiration...). I found this fat cat luxuriating in some overalls. I don't think I quite captured the stuffed sausage look, but it's pretty close 🙂
I found this funny picture of a sad fat cat and felt inspired. But it's been a while and it shows, haha. 🙂
As I sit trying to finish up some college class stuff, of course Duncan just decides to lay pretty much on the keyboard of my laptop. He's done it enough that we have a thing now where I move the laptop to my knees and he gets to lay close to me. It's not that... Continue Reading →
So Adam came home today and put his keys and wallet on the floor. As he was taking off his boots, Duncan decided to just lay down and rub his little cat head all over the wallet and keys. I wasn't sure if the message was that he loved the wallet and keys or he... Continue Reading →
Ok, so I have been in a bit of a creative funk lately but it's starting to come back! Starting with these doodles. As I was mindlessly watching Dropdead Diva I doodled these doodles, which I figured I would share since it's about all the drawing I've been doing. BUT....it got the rust off the... Continue Reading →
So my friends Emily and Brett have a pretend pet cat. Pretend pet cat, you ask? Well, it's just that he comes around and is super friendly. His real name is Dakota, but they've given him a new name...and he has accepted it. I honestly don't know how the name change started, but I'd like... Continue Reading →
So I've begun to let myself go and the URL of this blog is becoming more misleading. I realize lately that I totally go places (work included) with cat fur on my clothes and am not specifically aware of it....nor do I really care - until I realize I have stupid cat fur all over... Continue Reading →
Oooooooooook. I'm back. Yes, I am here and moved in to our newly fixed up little house. So hello, again! Firstly, we've been working super hard on getting our house all fixed up....like 3-5 days a week after work and almost all weekend every weekend since January. I know, right? I totally didn't imagine that... Continue Reading →
Did you know that Trudith likes to go snorkeling? And it's not just her. Her kitty loves a good adventure, too. Can't you tell? And I think the cat has a name now....thanks to a nice blend by Nora combining Jessi, Matt, and her own suggestion, the cat is named Sir Percival Chauncy Fuzbluffen. He oftentimes... Continue Reading →
Trudith isn't just an old fuddy duddy who sits around her house in the sitting room all day long. She and her cat enjoy a good outing at the park. P.S. I totally had one of those umbrella hats that I recall buying on vacation in Florida....and it was awesome. Well, awesome when I wore... Continue Reading →
So her is Trudith again. This time she really shows her class and graceful nature. She always eats like a lady.
Trudith loves a good chat with her gal pals, and her cat does, too. I still haven't decided on a name yet. Maybe I'll just leave him/her/it nameless and let you choose your favorite. It might be more fun that way (What a cop out! I should just make a decision.).
Thanks for all the cat name suggestions. Trudith hasn't told me yet which is the right one, though. But anyway, here they are just chillin'....'cause that's what Trudith does.
I decided to draw this lovely lady on paper instead to see how she would turn out and I have begun to draw here in a bunch of situations. She now has a name, as you saw in the title, and she NEVER goes by Trudy. I haven't decided on a name for her... Continue Reading →
Adam and I were talking and all the sudden Duncan trots toward and quickly past us. Not like a gallop sprint somewhere or a slow saunter, but a determined and focused jog. Was he coming to see Adam? Or me? No....he was just running kind of fast but not actually fast to his favorite chair... Continue Reading →
I decided that instead of a regular collar Duncan should wear a tie everywhere. And then he can be a business man (business cat?) since he's already wearing a tie. Or maybe a lawyer. Whatever brings in more money is good for me.
So Duncan has his favorite toys and everything, but he's gotten really into rubbing his face all over this sword Adam has. I like to think it's because he wants to be a samurai or something.
Adam's parents have a little old kitty who gets to go play outside. One day the neighbor girl called it a cat cow with a raccoon tail. Because it really is. It's a Frankenstein's monster cat!!!!
Here is Duncan if he was a magician. He pulled out that bird from Smudge's mouth. I guess it wasn't really a magic trick rather than a rescue effort. Side note: My mom said she feels bad for Duncan that he posed for one picture and this is what he gets out of it. Hahha,... Continue Reading →
I think he's recovered from this incident. He just avoids me all the time now. Our apartment is pretty awesome with a fun spiral staircase to a loft. It's like having a magical portal that as I ascend, allows me to enter a fantastical land of random things that don't fit into closets, crafting items,... Continue Reading →
