This is my story of how I became an unintentional Crazy Cat Lady.
I like animals. If it’s furry, 4 legged and mammalian, it’s welcome in my house. Growing up I always had a cat and a dog. I had the coolest dog growing up. Inky. My Grandfather rescued him from Paoli Pike (a busy 4 lane street) and when he passed away Mom & Dad inherited him. Inky is a blog for another day.
For the record, wet cats suck. They seem to have an uncontrollable need to dry themselves upon you. Or me that is. Right now it’s raining about 1″ per hour and our stupid four legged friends seem oblivious to this fact. Right now I need to change my t-shirt because I’ve had 3 cats dry themselves on me. The only good news about this is, when wet they don’t smell nearly as bad as dogs. So, if you will excuse me, I’m going to go change into dry clothes.
Hi. My name is Tacie and I’m a klutz.
The town I work in recently redid all the sidewalks and curbs with very nice brick sidewalks and granite curbs. The upgrades look very nice and very historic. However, when the curbs get wet they get slicker then snot covered ice. We’ve had a dry spell lately so the grease and grime and oil have had a chance to build up the curbs.
My girlfriend Michelle wrote a wonderful blog post on new love – Jersey Girl Gets Real. I’m a day early for shameless promoting of her website, but hey… sue me. No wait – don’t!
I’ve found the perfect man. Well, the perfect man for me. Granted he’s not actually perfect. But then again – neither am I. His quirks and idiosyncrasies compliment mine. It took me a long time to find him and he’s all mine. Once you find your perfect person and the initial rush is over… it’s like putting on your favorite pair of blue jeans. They are comfortable, fit perfect, and make you feel good. And when you find your perfect person, you should hang on to them.
The good news about the wonderfully cool weather we are having is we can open the windows so the cats can come and go as the please. Which means we don’t have to get up every 2 seconds to let a cat in the window or open the window above the bed all night long as cats come & go. David has taught them if they bang at the window – no matter what time of day or night – we will let them in.
Growing up most kids have a favorite teddy bear. Mine was a pink rabbit named… Lord, I can’t remember it’s name. I still have him. He’s not so pink or furry any more. He went everywhere with me. Flopsy Rabbit. It just came to me. Flopsy has floppy ears. My dog growing up, Peanut, ate one of Flopsy’s eyes and Mom replaced it with his nose.

I’ve become Kitty Velcro. Or at least 1/2 of the Velcro. Houdini, or Velcro Butt (or just Cro) as I’ve taken to calling him these days, has become the other 1/2. Usually cat moods last for a day or 4 tops and they move onto the next mood. Laying in the same place for a couple of days, a week tops, and then getting another “favorite” place.
Chapter 36 – Bats, Cats, Possums and Skunks
The fun part about living on the edge of rural, just beyond suburban, is the variety of wildlife we have here that comes by the house. We have bats, cats, vultures, deer, skunks, foxes and possums. Just to name the ones I can think of off the top of my head.
Isabelle had her kittens on our porch sometimes between 10 pm last night and 10 am this morning. We haven’t gotten close to her yet to see how many kittens there are. I’m going to go give her some milk and see if I can get close to the them without upsetting Isabelle. If she’ll let me I want to check out the babies. If she won’t… I won’t. It’s up to her.
Our cats are chasing each other all over the house. Shadow and Houdini are up the stairs and down the stairs. And over the furniture and through the living room and into the kitchen, and up the stairs and down the stairs.
They have a crazies.
