  • 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 […]

  • Crick Update

    Speaking of medical mysteries, I just realized that I haven’t given an update on how my sweet baby Crick is doing in quite awhile. When last I blogged about her, she was recovering from surgery to remove (most of) the giant lump in her neck. We weaned her off of prednisone, and her lump has […]

  • Low Key Christmas

    Christmas this year, like everything else this year, was different. Typically, I would go spent a couple of weeks at my sister’s place in Ontario over the holidays, but given the public health recommendation that we don’t travel outside our local community, and that you can’t have anyone from outside your household in your home, […]

  • On the ninth day of donating

    I usually have Vancouver Orphan Kitten Rescue Association (VOKRA) on my 12th and final day of donating, but since I’ve really gotten into this new charity, old charity pattern this year, I need to have a new charity on day 12, so VOKRA has been bumped up to day 9! VOKRA is the cat rescue […]

  • NaBloPoMo – Day 29 – My First Book Review

    I just got the official word yesterday that my first ever book review has been accepted for publication in a journal! Woohoo! I started to do this book review in the Before Times, but then the apocalypse happened and I completely missed my deadline. But, you know, apocalypse. So the journal editors let me submit […]

  • NaBloPoMo – Day 6 – WFH with Cats

    Working from home with cats consists of the cats sleeping 98% of the time, then trying to get in the way of any work being done for the other 2% of the time.

  • Happy 9th Birthday, Watson & Crick

    Yesterday, Watson and Crick turned 9. I was going to write this blog posting yesterday, but then Crick jumped on my lap and so I couldn’t get up to get my laptop, as it would be wrong to disturb a cat that is happily sitting on one’s lap on any day, let alone her birthday. […]

  • My Sweet Baby Crick

    Because 2020 is the year that just won’t quit sucking, we found a lump in Crick’s neck about two weeks that turns out to be (probably) feline Hogkin’s-like lymphoma. We took her to the vet to get the lump checked out and they did a fine needle aspirate (a.k.a., stick a needle in the lump […]

  • On the twelfth day of donating

    And for my final day of donating, as I did last year, 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 and find […]
