*No headgear for beautiful George and Gracie?
Charlene said: Take a look at the 2009 entry. Starts off with a headgear-ed Gracie/George (can’t tell which of the goggies it is…)
That is George – and I had completely forgotten that we’d managed to get a hat on either of the dogs! Neither of them is very cooperative when it comes to hats or collars, so I can just about guarantee that Fred was right off camera – and that George only put up with that for a moment before he tossed the hat and went running off to join his sister.
If you weren’t in Alabama, I would SNATCH up Bunnie SO FAST! I adore her markings! Is she a tabby, or something else?
She’s a torbie mix, at least according to her paper work. I have to admit that the color description of cats is pretty often just beyond me (unless they’re a brown or orange tabby, or a solid color. Hey, I know what a tuxie is, do I get bonus points for that?), so I’m glad someone else got to figure out what she was!
Okay I know you have addressed this elsewhere, and I apologize. But. Are those litter boxes just like, those big tupperware bins from Target, with a hole cut out? Because my “high-sided” litter box is not cutting it… Fat Earl still pees over the side, onto my baseboards, which sucks.
And if so, what’d you cut the plastic with? Because the thought of trying to cut that hole scares me. But I know cats hate the covered litter boxes, or most of them anyway. Please advise. 🙂
Those litter boxes are actually litter boxes that Target sold. Apparently they don’t sell them any more (at least around here), but I have made litter boxes out of plastic buckets, so it’s very doable. I used a box cutter to cut the entrance out, and then sanded gently around the edges so they wouldn’t be too sharp. If you go slowly with the box cutter, you shouldn’t have too much of a problem.
Charlene added: Just fyi, our local Target (Leesburg, VA; zip 20175) still had them as of last month. After I saw Robyn’s here and her high recommendation of them, I went looking for them myself and bought a couple. Unfortunately, they are too tall for where my litter boxes go, but my downstairs neighbor was able to use one. The other is still in my dining room, waiting to be returned. However, if anyone wants one and can’t find it locally, I’d be willing to ship to you — though I’m not sure how well it would hold up in transit and I’d imagine the shipping costs would be rather high since it is BIG. Anyway, just putting it out there….
If anyone’s interested in making contact with Charlene, you can do so in the comments or email me and I’ll pass your email along!
Pretty, pretty Tricki. Yesterday, I walked into the room and she did NOT run into the closet! That’s the first time that’s happened since I brought them home – and she seems to be spending the majority of her time out in the room instead of in the closet, so that’s good, too. We’re making progress with that sweet, skittish, slinky girl.
No pictures of Toto today, because he was in my lap and the camera wouldn’t focus on him!
Paulie and Meadow are headed back to Petsmart this morning. I’m going to miss having their silly little selves running around the house, but I suspect that the big cats will appreciate having a break from having little ones racing around and getting all up in their faces. (And you KNOW that now I’ve said that, another three Sopranos will need to come back for a while!)
