  • Introducing Kingsley Shacklebolt

    Much like when Crick died and Watson seemed lonely, so we got Raven as a buddy for him, after Watson died, Raven seemed lonely. So we decided to get her a buddy. We didn’t want to rush it, but decided to casually look at rescue cats online and wait until one of them jumped out […]

  • Watson Snow (2011-2024)

    SNOW, Watson – Unexpectedly on Saturday, January 13, 2024 at the age of 12 due to congestive heart failure. Survived by his humans and his sister Ravenclaw and predeceased by his sister Crick. Watson and his sister Crick came to live with their human just 5 days shy of 10 years before his death, and brought […]

  • 2022 Year in Review

    Since I barely blogged anything this year, I figured I might do a little year in review. Since my memory is terrible, I’m mostly relying on my photos and the few blog postings I did write. I had been thinking that nothing happened this year, but now that I’ve had a look at my photos, […]

  • On the twelfth day of donating…

    And for my final day of donating, as is tradition for this blod series, I’m donating to Vancouver Orphan Kitten Rescue Association (VOKRA). VOKRA is the cat rescue organization from which I got my beloved Watson & Crick and I’m happy to be able to support the work they do to take care of kitties […]

  • On the tenth day of donating…

    Last year, I adopted my beloved Ravenclaw from the Langley Animal Protection Society (LAPS) and so I’m happy to pay that forward by donating to LAPS. Every year they care for more than 1400 animals each year and they provide support like financial assistance for emergency vet care and pet food/supplies to help families in […]

  • Is This Thing On?

    So my calendar tells me that today is my 17th blogiversary so I thought it would be appropriate to write a blog posting. Apparently that’s not a thought I’ve had very often lately, as this is only my 8th blog posting THIS YEAR! That’s just slightly more than one per month, on average, which has […]

  • A bunch of random photos

    Apparently I have broken the blogging floodgates with my recent blog postings, because here I am blogging again! I recently got myself a new iPhone because the one that I had was cursed. It was also old and slow and its battery was crap and it was constantly too full so I was always having […]

  • Happy Birthday Watson and Introducing Raven

    Yesterday Watson celebrated his 10th birthday! It was a bittersweet day, as it was his first birthday that he celebrated alone, without Crick here to celebrate too. It makes me sad that Crick didn’t make it to see double digits. Watson celebrated his big 1-0 with lots of pets and snuggles and crunchy treats, which […]

  • Crick Snow (2011 -2021)

    SNOW, Crick – Peacefully in the arms of her human on Friday, March 5, 2021 at the age of 9. Survived by her humans, her brother Watson, and predeceased by many frogs. Crick was a loving and spunky little cat. She loved to snuggle and knead, and was particular fond of climbing up on top […]

  • Crick the Medical Mystery Cat

    When last I blogged about Crick’s health situation, we were waiting for our visit with the cat internist to try to figure out why her runny nose was getting worse. We ended up getting a scan of her head that showed the tissue in her nose was thickened, so a biopsy was taken for suspected […]
