Johnny Today – 01/31/20

This is going to be the longest 4 days until Monday.  I’m living with what seems like an entirely different cat.  When I woke up this morning, I didn’t see Johnny in his bed.  I went to the kitchen to make coffee.  As soon as that was running I went to the...

Johnny Today – 01/29/20

My nerves are totally on end.  Any positivity I had is drained out of me completely.  I’ve spend the last 2 days cleaning up after Johnny because he has stopped using the litter boxes entirely.  I spoke to a veterinarian that I met online last night.  He says...
My Toughest Decision

My Toughest Decision

It hasn’t been a really good couple of weeks for me or Johnny.  This morning I had to reformat the laptop that I use most of the time, and even after that nothing worked right.  I think it’s a goner.  I got 5 years out of it, so I will put it aside and use...
Is the National Anthem Racist?

Is the National Anthem Racist?

The Star-Spangled Banner, long a treasured symbol of national unity, has suddenly become “one of the most racist, pro-slavery songs” in American culture. Why is this happening? And more importantly, is it true? USA Today columnist James Robbins explores...

I had to let go of Tiger

I had to let go of Tiger

Everything looked promising.  Tiger and Johnny were actually starting to get along.  I could tell that the anxiety that she was feeling about being in a new home was starting to pass.  I thought that Johnny finally had his playmate. This morning I got a bit of a...

Too Damned Cold!

It’s 9:10 PM and I’m in for the night.  I’m thrilled to death that I don’t have to go out for anything else.  About 2 hours ago I had to go and get cat for and a few other items.  It’s about 2 blocks to the grocery store, and at the time...

The Cure for Being a Grumpy Old Man

I had a few days off and I just wanted to get away from it all for a little while.  A little self-medication is good for the temperament.  Cheers. My own special recipe Long Island Iced Tea. And a shrimp cocktail or two.  12 total...
Sunday Morning Is a Battlefield!

Sunday Morning Is a Battlefield!

There are few places in the apartment that I deny the cats access to.  They are not allowed on the TV cabinet because if they have any loose fur, it is magnetized to the screen.  It’s a major pain to clean off.  I also don’t allow them up on the mantel...

A quiet day with the kids

Well, so far Tiger is fitting in nicely here.  Both her and Johnny are still doing a little bit of hissing, but that’s to be expected.  Things got a little hot for a minute or two.  Johnny was sacked out in the dining room chair and Tiger decided that she wanted...

I’m giving it another try

Yesterday, one of my neighbors asked me if I wanted another playmate for Johnny.  He told me that he knew what happened with Milo, so he suggested that I take one of his cats on a trial basis.  His roommate is gone and two cats were just too much for him to handle. ...
