Daciquiri

Daciquiri aka Dac is the baby of the family.  She was born in fall of 2013.  I had two cats already and didn’t really want another one, but I fell in love with her.  She also had a stump of a tail and I have always loved unique cats.  In October I smuggled her home so nobody would know I had acquired my third cat.  It took a while, but eventually my other cats started “tolerating” her (I can’t say they love her because of her massive amounts of energy).

Dac is an energize bunny, a busy beaver, a momma’s cat (can’t be out of my sight for long periods of time), a cuddler, and is very inquisitive.    If I need a laugh Dac can make me laugh.  She also loves to carry things in her mouth and can basically just flop any which way and fall asleep.

Swimming in the Toilet

Dac has a fascination with the toilet and she loves watching when I flush the toilet.  Normally I wait til she jumps off and close the lid, other times I leave the lid open.

I went into the bathroom to wash my hands and Dac jumped onto the toilet and I heard a kerplunk and a splash.  Yup the lid was open.  I chased after her with a towel and tried to dry her off the best I could and contain my laughter.  Luckily it was only her back legs and tail that were wet.  And no she hasn’t learned to avoid the toilet, she still loves it.

The other day I went to use the toilet and she had dropped my toothpaste into the toilet.  I fished it out with the toilet brush and promptly threw it out.

Yup, Dac is an entertaining cat.

18 Struggles Only A Cat Owner Understands

I need to write something/blog something.  Quick, think…………  Ah here’s an article I can write on:

https://www.thedodo.com/struggles-every-cat-owner-has-1150355704.html

#1.  Yup Dac did this to me.  I actually went outside to see if she escaped, even though it was physically impossible for her to go outside.

#5.  I have just accepted the fact I had “sand” on my floors.  I really need to buy a mini or a handheld vacuum cleaner to quickly sweep up the “sand”.

17.  I have given up having plants in the house.  Plants and cats don’t mix.

18.  Yup, good thing Dac is a cutie.

Cloning Cats

For some reason last night I was thinking of cloning cats.  If the technology existed would you clone your cat(s)?

Dac I would never clone.  One Dac in a lifetime is enough.  She is a beautiful cat, but her energy level is insane.

Eddie I would consider it if they could take out the gene that causes him not to use the litter box.  I have 3 litter boxes and clean them nightly and he doesn’t use them.

Java I would clone in a heartbeat.  She is a beautiful and shy cat.  I have nothing evil to say about her.

The start of crazy season has started.  It’s actually not that bad, but still I’m finding it hard to find time to blog.  I want to keep the wheels on this blog so lets see if I do it.

The Elusive Cat

Java is a very private and shy cat.  I rarely get good pictures of her.  The one time she isn’t shy is when I’m in the bathroom.  She is my lap warmer, lol.  Java is also the one who gets picked on, as both Eddie and Dac will play fight with her. She is always the one on the bottom.  Java loves sleeping in the empty spare bedroom.  If I can’t find her, that is the first place I look.

Java is a really beautiful cat and I wish I had more pictures of her, but she isn’t one that loves the camera.

{52 Snapshots of Life} Week 5: Earth

Mom’s head was a spinning with ideas to do with Earth (har har: spinning and earth.  I hope it isn’t spinning too fast).  When mom thinks of earth she thinks of DIRT.  It was earth day on Wednesday, April 22, hence the theme of Earth.  I’m still going with the idea of DIRT, lol.  My cats are only allowed outside on a halter and Eddie and Java hate it.  Dac loves it, but she is a bit of a monkey and being on a second floor balcony is a bit dangerous.

The baby garden at 0.33 acres. I plant veggies that need to be picked three times a week (beans and cucumbers) and early crops in this garden (beets, cabbage, and carrots). The other garden is a 3 acre pumpkin patch and 0.7 acre veggie garden.

I had to include a picture of the farm dog, Stuey, enjoying the green grass.

The temp inside of the greenhouse. One time the fan broke and it went up to 50 celsius. I didn’t work in the greenhouse that day. We have two temps because we have a greenhouse inside of a greenhouse. Sounds confusing, but it is our way of saving heat. In the beginning of the season we only use 1/3 of the greenhouse.

Jenny doesn’t enjoy when earth (dirt) and water mix. Jenny is a mini horse that my parents use to give pony rides. This is a very “earthy” picture :).
