Welcome back to Whimsical Wednesday!


The day for your googled giggle that gets you over the hump that is Wednesday and sliding down into the weekend.


this is how lazy people work.
Do it once, do it right, put your feet up all day!

Musical Monday #5

Image
I was introduced to Musical Monday by Delores who copied the meme from another site.

I think it's a fun way to show off some of the music I like.
All of the clips are found at you tube, so I won't bother putting up credit for any of the artists.

Today's clip is another feel good happy song, by Alan Jackson.

Little Bitty.

and the lyrics. 

One of my favourites, the song and the singer.

Angel overload

Image
I brought Angel home on April 6th.

He was a little afraid at first and hid behind the fridge for several hours, but once he came out and ate dinner, he was much more confident.

The next day, he took over the place.

I had to remove everything from the top of this chest-height tallboy, because this tiny, tiny, kitten.....

was jumping up onto this chair and then onto the tallboy. Where he would sniff around and knock things off.

By the end of the first week, I'd started wearing these when playing with him and wishing they were elbow length!
He did learn quite quickly to back off and sit down when I held my hand up, palm out in front of his face and said "no" quite firmly.  Just like training a puppy.
The same tone guaranteed to stop a toddler in his tracks. Comes in handy now when I'm eating dinner and he jumps up to the table.

These next few photos have been taken on different days since Angel has been here.

that's my pyjama pants he is sleeping on.

oh the cuteness…

Wednesday's Words on a Friday

here's an ongoing expense I'd forgotten about

Image
Kitty Litter.

Angel is an inside cat, so I purchased a litter tray and a bag of litter. The range to choose from is quite extensive and choosing was hard. In the end I chose a bag of clay pellets and decided to try the others and see which performed best.

The clay pellets worked well, absorbing moisture and odour, but like any litter it's messy and I need to get one of those closed in trays to contain it. As soon as the budget allows.

Next I tried a softwood litter, which I gave up on pretty quickly. A clumping type and environmentally friendly, (also claims to be flushable, which I didn't try), but not as absorbent as I would have liked. Angel always came out of the tray with damp paws and I spent a lot of time wiping up paw prints with damp paper towel and disinfectant.
AND, the tiny shreds of softwood stuck to his feet and tail so got tracked all over the flat.
I still have half a bag of it and I'll empty it into the garden as mulch.

My current choice is Catsan crystal…
