The Product of the Year

Whitey continues to get his medication nightly, delivered by Katherine's deft fingers with kitty treat appetizers and chasers as both reward and insurance he swallows.

However, Katherine needs to go back to Boston for business and Aikido for a week, and my fingers are anything but deft. So it was off to the big box pet store together to find a pill shooter (pry mouth open, fire pill down throat).

The helpful salesperson actually knew his stock, but did not hear us properly -- he took us into the correct aisle and then handed us something called "Pill Pockets", which are hollow cat treats to hide pills in. We accepted them, and then found the pill shooter we came for and took that too.

Pill Pockets win. We haven't touch the pill shooter since it got home. Katherine took one look at how Whitey gobbles the pockets with the pill inside, and her deft fingers are now devoted to stuffing Pill Pockets too.

This product find is right up there with the catzilla sized scale and the Cat Paper.

Just because the new travel case for Katherine's chess equipment is even flatter than a brief case doesn't mean Billy doesn't want to relax in it.

In The Mews: Suitcase Cat

A tabby catten smuggled itself into a suitcase for a trip to Dallas, and then the suitcase got lost.

Mew!

A stench update

Actually, it's not much up of an update, which is the way we like it.

Mostly, the boys have been leaving hairballs once or twice a week lately. Never the same place, and we can't even tell which brother. Boring.

Photo Friday: Kitchen-Spider-Kitten Revealed

We previously showed Whitey peering into the front hall from high on a kitchen cabinet, but we didn't show what it took for him to get up there. It's a pretty good jump up, even for a Catzilla. Whitey prefers to make the jump from the slightly raised opening to the living room, or not go up there at all in favor of the refrigerator (not shown) as an intermediate step to the cabinets on over it.

Incidentally, the pillow on the counter is Billy's, for when he wants to keep tabs on the living room and kitchen at the same time.
