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 →
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 →
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 my dumb ol' drawing tablet stylus is still broken and I had to order one from Amazon. Boo. But at least I'll soon be able to do better digital drawings than I did today with my mouse. What is this, you ask? I'm sitting on the couch, making a dumb face, with the "cats"... Continue Reading →
Sorry for all the caps up there but I AM EXCITED! This marks the end of the first year of notacrazycatlady and also the conclusion of my post a day challenge. For those of you from the beginning, you know that I have boldly accepted the challenge (from WordPress.com and I suppose myself) to post... Continue Reading →
Duncan totally winks at me. It might just be a one-sided blink but I like to think it's his way of saying hello and that he loves me.
Yes, I'll admit it. Sometimes Adam and I make up songs about mundane everyday things. Today Adam was singing about the cats. Specifically Duncan. Pretty much because Duncan was looking ridiculous and desperate but as if he was trying to hide it. We decided that it was his way of getting food since he knows... Continue Reading →
So I found out a certain little big cat got locked out of our basement last night. And not only that.....but he ate his uncle's cat food upstairs during his midnight run of the house. All of it. As in zero crumbs or anything leftover. How am I not surprised?
He probably would already eaten the string cheese so he'd have to move onto the next best thing. On a totally unrelated note, I've had a Justin Bieber song suck in my head for the last 14 hours. Help me.
He was going crazy when I brought out the Goldfish crackers and so I decided to give him one. And he crunched it up really fast. And so I gave him another one. And then I realized he would do this forever so I stopped and ate the rest myself. No more goldfish crackers for... Continue Reading →
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... Continue Reading →
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... Continue Reading →
Duncan transcends gender and this is why he is the Dairy Queen. At least that's what his Uncle Lee calls him....and I think it's a fantastic nickname. Very fitting.
Smudge was in the middle of playing by himself and his favorite string when he heard/saw Duncan getting his medicine. This was the photo my mind took and transferred to my computer.
Actually, it will be a year that Adam and I have been married next weekend, but because we are going to a wedding today, here is how I WISH our wedding went.
So today is the last day of my vacation in Vegas. I am writing this from the past as I actually haven't left yet so I can only speculate the great treasures I have won at many casinos. I hope I'm a millionaire now. I'll still cattoon if I am; don't worry. Money won't change... Continue Reading →
Duncan loves to help put away laundry. Smudge thinks he's beautiful. And yes, that is an Ohio State name tag. The cat knows how to nap. 'Nough said.
I was just messing around with the paint program and came up with Duncan getting out and about. Stinker.
So I've already chronicled Duncan's love of food, specifically string cheese. But recently Duncan has been using his supersonic hearing again to find string cheese that I want to enjoy. By myself. But sharing is caring after all.
Duncan has been sitting very prettily recently. He often lays with his little front legs crossed. Very high class.
Duncan and Smudge have an illustrious history of cat fighting. I'm pretty sure it's just play but it might be more, too. All I know is that almost always Smudge instigates and suffers the ensuing consequences. Smudge is know for the back leg surprise bite and cower move, while Duncan is famous for his repeated... Continue Reading →
We got this wine insta-cooler thing as a wedding present (thanks, Jordan!) and used it the other day. Duncan was in the kitchen with us and as soon as it started spinning the bottle around and making a weird whirring noise, he was instantly transfixed and mesmerized. It was like a cat-charmer. Maybe I can... Continue Reading →
Here is an attempt with a bit more effort and practice. I'm liking this tablet more and more. P.S. In case you were fooled by my super talents, that is a drawing of a pencil, not a real pencil.
So I am playing with and learning my tablet (it is kind of hard to get used to!). This is a super short, not so glamorous animation I just did in a few minutes to play with the animation app and see what it's all about. Duncan is so demanding...
So I got a Bamboo Fun tablet as a birthday present and this is the first result. Not too great, but I just wanted to get a feel for doodling on it. So here is Duncan as I was sitting in the kitchen with my new Bamboo tablet as he heard Adam come home... Continue Reading →
So Duncan had to take a trip to the vet the other day for vomiting. He never really ralphs excepts when he might have eaten too quickly so this was of some concern. The vet thought it might be a hairball and that to keep an eye on things. Well, the next day his hairball... Continue Reading →
When Adam and I were moving from NC, we had to put the ol' cattos upstairs in the bathroom so we could move things out of the apartment without fear of escaping renegades. Since we have a lot of junk, the poor guys were upstairs for quite some time. When we took a break and... Continue Reading →
You may remember how great Duncan was at pillow running. Well, he's taking these talents to another level with glass running. He's really good.
Adam and I were defrosting some chicken on the counter and had the plate covered with foil. Not more than a few minutes later, Adam was walking his way to the kitchen and nearly stepped on a frozen chicken breast. Yes, you heard right, Duncan was "so hungry" that he had to jump on the... Continue Reading →
As I am not currently living with the catos now for almost two months (that all changes next week!) I am only going on hear-say but I was told of a tale of Duncan that was not a big surprise. Adam's dad opened the window to enjoy the spring breeze, not realizing that there was... Continue Reading →
Yes, you've heard it here. I'd rather keep this one in the closet but for the sake of full disclosure here on notacrazycatlady, I must confess. first, a little background: Our cats are now moved in back in Cleveland with Adam while I am finishing up school here in NC. Adam's parents have a... Continue Reading →
1. I realize his uniform is fastened backwards...so sue me. I was going for mirror image? (This is for all my Columbus friends who might harass me about this....P.S. guys - bonus points for this location!) 2. This should be the last of the Digital Duncan set of pictures. Love 'em or hate 'em, we're... Continue Reading →
Someone has to tell him he need to watch out for sharks and jelly fish...because I know all he's looking at is the snack shop down the beach.
Just forget that there is no background or horizon or anything and look at the cute little kitten crossing the road.
He looks very good in a coconut bra. It is important that he avoid that little crabby because I think it is eyeing his tail right now.
I don't even really care about football (gasp!) but I thought Duncan might need to lose a little weight by playing sports.
Personal secret: I LOVE Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory/Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I don't know if I've mentioned it before or not, but here it is again/for the first time. I totally love both the old one and new one; I know many people have strong emotions about the remake but I think... Continue Reading →
Here is Duncan if he was a professor. He would look distinguished and probably wear argyle vests and spectacles. Yes, I said spectacles; not glasses. He would teach a class about food or cat yoga or something.
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 →
So I took a funny picture of Duncan and when I was bored one day I decided to paint on top of it using my phone. Thus, Duncan, the apple picker. Then I kept going....so this may continue for a few days....or a lot of days.
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... 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 →
