I'm in love with Henri.

What??? You started dinner without me??? (Note: she looks like our very own Roxy.)

A dog in a bar.

For more cuteness, see my post here.

Ok, now, I'm tired.

Did you just rob a bank, sweetie?

I dare you touch any of this.

How do you sing "do-re-mi" in meows?

Why does the dog always lose?

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.

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…

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…

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。

She fell off the tree in our front yard this morning right in front of Erik. In the beginning, he thought it was a big leaf… until he saw four cats — our neighbors' cats — suddenly all showed up out of nowhere. In the center was this tiny little chick. …more…

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…

We've had Mango for almost two weeks. She is a beautiful red tabby. She was born on May 15, 2008, so, still a kitty. As a matter of fact, she was born to Little One. It didn't look that way when we first got her into our house, because Little One, who had been our resident cat for a month, hissed at her. …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. …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…
