      Posting these cat-cartoons-without-the-cartoon was a long journey that I don’t know if I’ll repeat soon again. A daily blog is tough … even when you have your material handed to you! But, I couldn’t have done it without the artwork … Continue reading →

      Father Time is riding out his last few minutes of being the temporal keeper for 2011; he sits in an easy chair with a calendar showing “Dec 31” behind him and a grandfather clock pointing to the time of 11:53. … Continue reading →

Ghosts in the house

Posted by joeabbott on December 24, 2011

P1030946A short while back our youngest cat, Trimble (who is about 6 years old … and should know better), started opening the cupboard door to the vanity in our guest bathroom and pulling out the towels we’d stored there. Oddest darned thing. We’d hear him banging the doors a bit and when we’d turn the corner, he’d look up guiltily and run off. When we didn’t catch him in the act, he’d pull stuff out and leave it in disarray.

Well, we’ve taken to leaving that bathroom door closed at all times but the little fiend has taken his act to the kitchen.

On any given day, this is what I might wake up to finding when I come into the kitchen first thing in the morning!

Suzy’s seen him just “kneading” the towels in the drawer but it makes for a lot of laundry and a lot of clutter to pick up. It’s not like we don’t have cat toys, blankets on the couch, or pillows all over. And what’s with the opening the other cupboards? It’s like living in the “Sixth Sense” house!


But, right now I see that it’s about noon on Christmas Eve day and that means we have guests arriving (Suzanne’s family) in a few hours. We’ve been cleaning and prepping and readying the house, so we should be ready. But, to all I say, Merry Christmas and the Season’s Peace to you all!
