Who Told My Cat She Could Sing?

Mama's Losin' It

Today's writing prompt:  Your Pet's Least Likable Character Trait.


Who's a good kitty?  Who's a pretty kitty?  Who's a sweetie-sweetie little pretty kitty?


After a long night, filled with the music stylings of our cat Maddy singing her opera of meows?  Not my kitty!  That's for sure!


Ann Again and again - Who Told My Cat She Could Sing?

I don't know why this has happened but our dear old cat Maddy has changed her personality and has become loud and difficult at night.  She gets plenty of attention - plenty from our 12 year old Lily - but she still has something to complain about and it's usually around 3 or 4 in the morning.

Does she have food?  Yes, later in her life she is taken with wet cat food so we make sure to feed her before we go to bed so her serving will last until morning.  Does she have water?  Yes, as a matter of fact she has a large container of water that she just loves to bellow above before drinking - this "singing" usually starts around 3 a.m.  Toys, cozy blankets, she's got it all.

We wondered if she couldn't see the water, she used to love to drink from a running faucet but after the faucet was left on one too many times that idea had to go away, so we have a water dish that moves when it refills.  But she STILL sings to her water, and she sounds kind of angry actually.  Is she mad at her water?  Her meowing sounds kind of like "I don't like you.  But I'm thirsty so... well... here it goes!"

Oh, the night meowing is bad. Have you had a similar experience?  Did you find a solution?  Advice is welcome!

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…

How to Find the Safest Gear for your Baby

Nothing compares to the joys of being a parent. Having a newborn in the family brings couples closer and makes the entire household more cheerful and interesting. But as we all know, being a parent is not just about spending time with your baby. More than anything else, it also requires exerting a lot of effort to make sure that your baby is always safe and free from potential hazards. To further help you in this endeavor, here are some useful tips for finding the safest gear for your baby as you go through various baby product guides:

Opt for a non-toxic gear. The first thing you need to check is the composition of the safety gear. What is the material made from? Is it non-toxic? Be sure that it is because babies have a strong tendency to put everything they see or touch in their mouths. It goes without saying that a safety gear that is made from toxic materials could poison your baby, in the long run, so be very careful about the safety gears you purchase.
Make sure it is sturdy. The …

Yes, I'm a Dork for the Grocery Outlet

So our neighborhood was notified that a Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market would be opening in the new year.  I can't tell you how thrilled I was to hear this!  And when I received my friendly Grocery Outlet postcard with my friendly notice of the friendly festivities for their Grand Opening I actually put it on my calendar.  I knew exactly where I was going to be on Saturday morning.

Whoo Hoo! There was a giant "Wheel - o - Bargains".  I spun and won a $1 off my purchase.  Oh man I can't tell you how happy I am when I get money off my purchase.  yeah baby.  We were one of the first 1000 customer's so my husband and I received free Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market reusable bags!  (Rob was so excited.  Yes, he can be a dork sometimes too.)

What is it about this place?  Most of the items are things that I've never heard of, or have any interest in, however I am drawn to it like a kid to a candy store.  (Or better yet, like a wine lovin' mom who's found some…
