Boredom on a Snowy Day

It's one of those really snuggly snowy days. I should use this time to clean something, but have decided writing in my blog - even if it's something lame - would be far more entertaining. This morning I went around and took a few pictures. I don't know why -as I said, I'm in complete avoidance of anything productive or important. I managed to pluck a hair from my chin, but that was about all that I could mange in the way of productivity.

The first picture is of my new guy - "Ike". He's VERY sweet and looks just like my Thomas.

Of course, he started to sneeze this morning which will slow down the introduction process.
Ozzy has to be the most photographed cat I have. I thought he was looking VERY cute and as bored as I am this morning. (Note for Grocery List: "Buy Lint Roller")

I don't think I've posted a picture of my little "Bowling Ball Cat" Pella. Pella is probably the perfect cat. She never does anything wrong and makes "honking" sounds instead of meowing. I bought the striped cat bed a few months ago for $20.00 - it matched my decor (always a bonus when buying cat-related stuff). But NOBODY would sit in this cat bed until I put it in a really ugly box....hence you see how happy Pella looks. Unfortunately, I don't decorate in "Early Retro Brown Box", but I don't think Pella cares. Occasionally, my senior cat "Bob" gets confused and I find "The Lone Turd" (T.L.T.) in the box, but that doesn't seem to keep Pella from enjoying the moment.

So that's it for now. I'm going to yell at motivate my 17 year old son to shovel the driveway. I've checked my Facebook page a million times today to check for something exciting happening in somebody else's life. I've called my David at work twice. He's fasting because he's having a colonoscopy (aka: "Roto Rooter") tomorrow. He's cranky, so I doubt I'll call him again.

We need some new cat toys in this house.

Please don't take offense to this question, but I was just wondering what you do for a living.

No offense taken! I don't earn any money, but rescue cats on a volunteer basis. I'm a fortunate girl to be marrried to a man who will support me and my endeavours :)

I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy reading your blog. I spoke to you once when you were with your last rescue when I began fostering. I am new to the cat rescue world and it is so fun to read about all your rescues and the great people who welcome these felines into their lives. It's disappointing that there are so many crappy & irresponsible people out there but fortunately there are a lot of great people too! Thanks for being such an inspiration!

I chanced upon your blog for the first time today (through Strayers) and loved it...thanks for a great blog and for being such a fabulous person! Love your rescue stories, and am so happy you had a good rescue day today.

Shouldn't the last sentence have read "We need some new cats in this house"?

I have that bed too. I bought it at a kitchen store shortly after Christmas when it was on sale. I didn't even see it until I got to the desk to pay. I was so thrilled. Sadly it was as poorly received as yours until I put a fur covered hot-water bottle in it. Now I have to fill the darn thing every night.

Oddly enough, I have to pluck one stray hair from my chin every few months, too. ;-)

I won a cat tree (it's huge and awesome) a few years ago. None of the cats would use it until I threw some old sweatshirts on it. I guess they figured the living room looked better with laundry laying around.
