the local spca did a $15.00 spay or neuter event for cats. i actually heard about it in time to sign leo up. i drove him with me to work and dropped him off and picked him up on the way home. right now he is very laid back and a bit sore. he has stopped chasing the girls and once tigger figures out he is harmless hopefully she will warm up to him a bit more. i am loving going to bed and not hearing pissed off cats hissing and growling at each other and having to get up and move leo. we will see how things go once he has healed completely

leo update

so leo is now freely roaming the house, using the litter box and trying to get it on with the other cats. chickie just beats him down and goes her merry way. tigger is having a major prblem with him when he gets in the mood. she just wants to be left alone even with hubby and i she only wants to be touched when she wants it. if you look up aloof cat in the dictionery you will find her picture. so now we spend about an hour or so every night moving leo beause he has tigger pissed and cornered. oh the fun next step getting him fixed soon.

well sandy has come and gone. i spent mon and tues at home staying safe and dry. sandy brought swollen rivers, and downed trees but no power outages. i did park my car in the garage for the first time and paniced thinking one of the cats escaped during the storm but everyone is home and ok. there is not even much clan up at my house a few small branches and tons of leaves but that is all.

lost dog central

last night for the second time this month lost loose dogs have wandered up to our house. there were 2 didn't bark just wandered the driveway smelling our dogs. hubby went outside to see if they had id tags. both did. last time it was a lost dog hotline that called the missing owners. last night it was the owners themselves. they were extremely relieved that we found the dogs and called them. they had been searching for 6 hours and the dogs had decided to go for a nice long walk. they had gone about 6 miles from home. hubby and i waited in the drive until the owners arrived to get the dogs they were so happy and relieved that they were ok and safe. now they just had to get them home and pull off ticks and burrs. between stay cats and lost dogs it has been non stop lately.

the lone boy cat in a house full of female animals. i think hubby just wanted to up his numbers since he was the lone guy with all females. now he has a buddy another male who is surviving in a house full of women. other than locking leo up when everyone else eats he is fitting in fine no fights and lots of chasing an cat wrestling. he loves toys with a bell and has gained weight since his arrival. looks like he is a permenent part of the family. wecome to the zoo

oh my god how did i end up with 4 cats

OMG I am becoming the cat lady. somebody help me. hubby found a cat running around near his work. since work is right off the turnpike it is not a good place for a cat to be running around. he talked me into bringing him home until he is claimed or someone takes him. looks more like he is a permanant part of the family now. jack ignores him no suprise there, winnie loves him and follows him around, tigger and chickie were not happy at first but he is so laid back he knows chickie rules the house and tigger is the aloof one. gracie just ignores him. now if we can just convince him he no longer needs to eat any and all food he sees we will be happy. in other news, well there isn't much. we have been trying for a baby but no luck and last month we didn't even try since we were both feeling horrible with a wicked cold. my work is the same. still looking for another job and hoping when the election is over things will get better. the fall/ thanksgiving/ christmas baking frenzy has begun again. this year i am hoping i actually have some help. this may happen since my niece loves to bake and her mom now lives 5 minutes from me. so M is close by every other weekend and wants to come help.

wow my cute sweet little niece. my little buddy is 14. ok what happened how did she get this old. i am amzaed at the sweet funny girl she is and the wonderful woman she is becoming.

in other news no baby yet just have not been able to get the timing right. the perils of an irregular cycle. oh well we have started talking about what we want to do if a baby is not going to happen. we are not quite ready to move on maybe in the spring or summer but we have been talking about the next step we want to take. good thing we both want to move on the same way and just need to decide how and when to move forward.

for now we are trying to pay off credit cards and stay warm. have i mentioned i hate the cold and winter and snow. although this has been one of the better winters so far not to cold just a bit of snow that even comes on the weekends when i am off and i am hoping it will continue.

not much else for now animals are fine chickie is in love with the sink and running water and the dish sponge tigger is thin and sleek from playing and chasing chickie, jack now comes upstairs to the kitchen for food and has started slowly exploring the upstairs, winnie and gracie are their usual doggie selves begging and licking and playing and snuggling and kiwi is getting lots of exercise in her cage defending it from chickie.

so... hi ! been a while. not much is going on lately. baking got done early same with shopping. holidays are over and now... well not much. hubby and i still hardly see each other. some days it is only 30 minutes in the morning and 30 before bed but we try to talk and share what is going on and well trying to make a baby. which while fun is frustrating if you work different schedules and have to plan everything.
the furry family is doing well. tigger has a playmate and when there is nothing on TV at least we have catertainment. they wrestle and chase and teach each other how to annoy the dogs and the bird. kiwi does not get out as much since we need to be extra aware of chickie she is fascinated with the bird and teases her and stalks her when she is out. chickie's other new things for 2012 are playing in water and trying to go outside. she even got out last night and winnie chased her to the fence and then into the yard before my hubby caught her and brought her back inside. oh well never a dull moment that is for sure.
