Reminder (in case you missed it in yesterday’s post) : I am on vacation, and today’s post will be the last new one until June 18th. Posts will be going up regularly on Instagram (and shared to Facebook and Tumblr), and there might be the occasional vacation picture there as well, but don’t count on it.

There’s a “random post” button over there in the sidebar – click on it, it gives you a random post. There are over 3,000 Love & Hisses posts – are you sure you’ve seen ’em all?

Behave (or don’t; I’m not your keeper) and I’ll catch you on the flip side.


PS: Someone always asks “Who’ll take care of the cats and kittens while you’re gone?!” and the answer is, as usual, Fred. Fred will care for them.


Courtesy post for reader Laura:

I have 6 cats but over the last month my big Orange cat Dash and my tabby cat Spike have gotten into almost daily fights and it has reached breaking point. I need to rehome Dash as he is now causing stress for every cat in the house. I want to find him a new home where he is the only cat. He is sweet and affectionate to humans and will do well as long as he is the only cat in town. I live in Maryland and I’m willing to bring him to whomever will give him a good home. My email is laura.michael1979 (at) yahoo.com

I am at my wits end and this is breaking my heart.

If you can offer Dash a good home or have any questions, please email Laura at laura.michael1979 (at) yahoo.com


The ornj boys and Tessa. That’s a pie plate of CUTE right there.

Tessa the flirt.

Katia’s keeping an eye on me.

Tessa hanging out with big sister Katia and giving me attitude.

And Tessa hanging out in my lap… and giving me attitude!

Torvill and Ohno on the little scratcher.

There was a wasp flying around out there, and Torvill was mesmerized.

Picabo, giving me attitude.

Katia, Torvill and Debi.

The mamas, keeping an eye on me.

They really like this little scratcher in the guest bedroom. I thought about moving it to the foster room, but Newt likes to sleep there at night, so maybe I’ll get one like it for the foster room. Or maybe I’ll dither for a while longer. WHO KNOWS?!

Cat in a tree!


Newt takes a stretch.

2005: And then I see Flossie’s worried little face, and I think “She is just unbearably cute. SHE’s my favorite.”

  1. Tessa and Katia hanging out in that carrier; looks like Katia has been telling Tessa horror stories about humans and now she’s warily eyeing you up to see if they are true. Jury’s still out I think. 😉

  2. The Katia, Torvill, Debi pic really shows there colorings well. Speaking of colorings, I am going through the list to determine the frequency of the colors of cats you have had. It’s a long list. I’m at F right now.

  3. Don’t get me wrong, I think all of the kittens are beautiful, but I am amazed how pretty those Meezers turned out – coming from an ordinary stray cat.

  4. “My wife went on vacation and all I got was a hurricane of @ssholes.”

  5. I don’t know why, but I just adore Katia. I hope the right person shows up for those 2 mamas.
