Linking up for Wordless Wednesday at My Little Drummer Boys
(embedded flash sound, you might need to click through to hear it)
Hearing this sound coming from under your bed in the middle of the night after watching Walking Dead, you could easily be mistaken that the zombie apocalypse is upon us. Zombies are all the rage now, who DOESN’T want zombies under their bed!
2. They are great with computers, and can help you with your work.
3. They make great baby sitters. Sometimes, literally.
4. Everything is cat when you own cats. I wonder if anyone has done a study on how much cat hair the average owner consumes each year. If we apparently eat 8 spiders each year, I’m not sure we want to know.
5. The internet is made of cats. It is estimated* the internet is 80% cat. Cat pictures out number porn. In my expert opinion, if you take away the cats. The internet would crash and burn. And no body wants that, right?
6. Having to dash out at all hours to replace the butter. Someone has left it on the bench and a lovely cat has come along and prised the lid of and had a buttery feast (and it is too far gone that you can’t just scrap the licked bits out and tell no one) Helps keep your butter fresh.
7. Looking forward to falling into bed after a hard day, only to find a wet patch and turn the light on and discover a lovely cat has vomited all over your quilt and pillow. You don’t need that much sleep anyway.
8. Scars. Special tattoos given to you by your cat as a lasting memory of their hurty love.
9. They help with important purchases. No, we cannot buy this lounge, the cat hair will stick to it and the vomit won’t clean off too well. The children are all well educated in the types of fabric to avoid for the hair retention. Indeed an important life skill to have
10. Because HELLO, CATS!

Looking to make an effort, get out and try new things this year (it’s only January, I am sure the urge will pass) One thing I’d like to do is bake more.
Just before Christmas I was craving cornflake cookies. I used to love those things. Haven’t had one in years (didn’t Woolies used to make them?) Anyway, found this recipe and I am at the shop looking at the sultanas, raisins and currants. What the hell is the difference between those things?! Standing in the baking isle trying to Google, I gave up and thought screw it we’ll just add chocolate chips.
I am not a huge fan of regular chocolate, so I grabbed some white ones. Spotted the caramel bits, thought why the hell not, we’ll add those too. But damn those things are expensive aren’t they?
I have lost count of how many batches of these we have made since Christmas. They would have to be the best cookies ever. And so easy to make, even the kids have made themselves a batch when they have had friends over. I’ve had a few people ask for the recipe. So, here it is.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Makes: ~24 depending on how much batter you eat
Don’t you love cleaning your room and finding long lost things that you haven’t seen for years. I think that’s the only thing that inspires me to actually do it, all the neat shit I am going to find.
Last weekend I came across the cat’s harness that I bought many years ago thinking it would be a great idea. They will love to go outside for a walk I thought.
Calais is the only one I can put it on, he does like going outside and will happily wander around. Gemini is way to small, and Alex HATES outside. He will just cling to the ground near the door screaming until he is let back inside.
It is a puppia harness, which is technically meant for dogs. But I liked it a lot more than the ones meant for cats. And it was such a pretty colour.
It would fit well if you had regular built cats, rather than slinky Siamese. It’s all good until he remembers that if he puts it in reverse and wiggles a bit he can slip the harness.
Now I remember why we had put it away.
Love a good pat from Dad.
Alex and Anastasia from a while back, when we first got the harness.

Have you been following the story of London, the now 2 legged Pitbull?
It is a heartwarming and inspirational journey. This dog and his carers are a-mazing!
London was horribly abused and injured by previous owners, both legs shattered and left for months without treatment. But thanks to the wonderful people at Panda Paw Rescue, this beautiful puppy has been given a second chance.
You can read more of his story at We Are Team London. Through wonderful donations, they have been able to cover to costs of London’s medical care and now have a scholarship fund, where they are helping other dogs in need.
Puppy factories are the cruel hidden industry behind the pet shop window and glossy internet sites. The reality is mother dogs are kept con?ned and pregnant their entire lives to meet the unceasing demand of the pet industry. When their reproductive life is over, they are killed and replaced. These dogs spend their entire lives con?ned in dirt pens, in tin sheds or in raised wire cages with little or no veterinary care, they are simply treated as breeding machines. Their life when they hit the petshop isn’t much better.
Please help spread the word and boycott this brutal business. Don’t be an unsuspecting link in the supply chain of cruelty.
The lead-up to Christmas is a critical time for puppy farmers who rely on impulse purchasing at pet shops in order to profit. We can stop the puppy trade by not buying puppies from pet shops and showing others why they should do the same.
Oscar’s Law aims to change the way our pets are kept, bred and sold.
- Abolish the factory farming of all companion animals.
- Ban the sale of factory farmed companion animals from pet shops and online trading sites.
- Promote adoption through rescue groups/pounds/shelters.
Watch and share this video to help educate others why we should not be buying any animals from pet shops.
