You’re going to have to explain for me, why the name Greg?
I’m honestly not sure why I keep trying to call Charleston Greg! I thought maybe he reminded me of Greg Brady, but they don’t really look alike (aside from both being brown tabbies – Greg had a lot of white in addition to his brown tabbiness). I’m thinking it might be the “gr” in green that makes me want to say “Greg”, because when I tell Fred something about them, I refer to them by collar color (or Charlotte is “gray” and Abby is “the new girl.”)
What kind of camera do you have? Your photos are always so clear. Mine are all blurry even though I’m using two hands.
Auggggh… that video of the Sopranos from 2013 is the cutest EVER!!
That video cracks me UP.
OMG – Jake from 2010….he’s a mutant – 6 legs and 2 tails!!!
I love that picture! I think Reacher was standing behind him.
I’ve never heard of silvervine. What is it? Does Chewy carry it?
Do you remember where you got the silverine pillow?
Some people refer to it as “Japanese catnip.” Some cats like it, some cats prefer catnip, some cats like both, and some cats like neither. It really depends on the cat. Chewy does appear to have a few silvervine toys, but I don’t have any of that kind (yet!), so I can’t say how popular they are with cats.
I got the silvervine pillows on eBay – the seller name is SillyLupie77, or search on silvervine p-lows (this link works now; it might not always). They’re in Malaysia, so it’ll take a while to get to you.
I had not heard of using activated charcoal before – any guidance or suggestions there as to brand / amount?
Me too on the activated charcoal — how much and how often per box?
I previously said that I use about 1/2 cup of the activated charcoal, but it’s probably more like 1 cup – I don’t actually measure, just eyeball it. I add it when I scrub and refill the boxes, and then add more after a couple of weeks if I feel it needs it. Warning: if your cat has white paws, the charcoal might make turn them slightly gray.
Where’d you find that awesome litter scoop? I’m always looking for metal scoops that are somewhat ergonomic (I do not like the really popular shovel-type one that is a best-seller on Amazon — murder on shoulder joints).
That is a KKat Innovations It’s the scoop litter scoop (Amazon link provided for reference, you can probably find it cheaper elsewhere). It’s my favorite, and I highly recommend it. Fred thinks it’s awesome too, and that’s not usually something he’d notice.
As a note: according to Amazon reviews, some people find the handle on this scoop difficult or painful to deal with. I don’t have an issue with it, but if I did I’d likely wrap duct tape around the handle.
A shot of all six! I mean, not the greatest shot (Charlotte’s kind of blurry), but I’ll take what I can get.
