It seems that I have not officially introduced Roxie, who has been with us since last May, although I did talk about her in this post.  After she came home that time, she stayed. On average, I let the kitties outside to play two to three times a week. …more…

A collection of old photos.


May 10th, 2011

This video was from Friday, May 6, 2011. I haven't seen Roxie since that day. I like to think that the mole was Mother's Day present from Roxie.
To Roxie,
Baby, I know you are an outdoor kitty and you are born to explore. Or, maybe because you are such a cute cuddler that someone else has claimed …more…

Little One's Report: Daddy did not come home this weekend…
听妈咪说爹地这个周末去和老朋友攀岩,所以这两个晚上是我们女人的世界,我们真高兴呀。我们其实很喜欢和爹地妈咪一起温馨,可是经常我和他们一起跳上床后 过一会,爹地就会突然坐起来冲着我瞪眼,吓得我一个激灵就 …more…

Normally, I don't re-post. But I just can't resist this one — the men are too cool and the cats are too cute. The post (already a re-post) did not provide the original source of the photos (shame!), so I apologize to the original composer of the collection. …more…

After a full year of being home bound, we decided to take a road trip to Tucson, AZ for the holidays. We'll be gone for a week. Can we all survive? I am already missing them even though we have not left yet! Feeling anxious about the separation, I wrote following post (in Chinese) to the pet forum. …more…

A Harmonious Society (家里的和谐社会) (I)

今天我开门放她们出去玩。两个丫头玩得一身土回来。只好给她们洗了生平第一次澡。不容易呀。Today, I let them out to play. They had lots of fun in the dirt, but a bath was in order when they returned home. It …more…

今天在家,天好。打开纱门留个缝,两个丫头就可以自由出入。小家伙玩的兴起,在土地里打滚,不亦乐乎。两个半天玩下来,自己回家了。我动了念头要给她们洗澡。这可是她们生平第一次呀。本来是想等着猫爸回来请他动手的。主要是我在家一直扮演慈母角色,丫头很亲 …more…

They were just sleeping neck in neck. Don't you let your imagination run wild. 脖脖相扣而已,不要瞎想。

I posted this on a pet forum in response to a question whether a cat needs a companion.
以前讲过我收留小家伙的经过。她曾经是街对过邻居的猫之一,后来因为没有及时计划生育的原因,一度和将近十只猫共处。开始看他们同出同进,和谐的很。后来 …more…

Yesterday, I sent Erik a text message in the morning who left for work before I did:
     Me: Little One was playing with one of her toy mice when I left.
     Erik: Holy Cow! Is she all right?
Yep, that pretty sums up our Little One. She is sweet, she is cuddly, but she does not play. …more…

I'm sleep deprived. That is because Little One meowed all night last night, first time we did not confine her to her own room, our bathroom. There is nothing wrong with her. She just wanted someone to play with her. When we went to bathroom in the middle of the night, she would run up to us and start …more…

Her name is Little One, that's the calling she responded to when she first time came into our house sniffing around last weekend. She was our neighbors' cat and grew up with her sister, both about one year old now. I've posted their story before, in Chinese. …more…

星期一长周末出游回来天还亮,心中大喜。鼓足勇气到邻居家问,“我可不可以和小猫们玩儿会儿?”(这岁数一大把,问这样的问题,没有勇气是不行的。)好心热情的邻居欣然同意,并说,“在这儿玩儿,你带回家玩儿,随便你! …more…

[Note: This is a short post I wrote about Ron and Liz's cat, Purr. He is the mellowest cat I've ever met and he is beautiful too. Oh, I love him. I wrote it up and posted on a Pets Forum I visit from time to time.]

这是朋友的猫,名字叫Purr。它是我生平见过的最友好的猫。以前我提过,尽管我非常想养猫,但是不能给猫提供一个稳定的环境,所以不能如愿以偿。正因为此,我就更加珍惜和 …more…

好喜欢猫。但是我和LG都常不招家,周末总是也一走就是两天,所以不忍心养。正因为这样,每当我有机会和别人家的猫相处,就格外珍惜。对门邻居出门几天,让我帮忙喂猫,我好高兴。这三只猫都是散养在户外的。在我们这个被森林溪流包围的小山镇,到处有bobcats,raccoons,甚至mountain …more…
