Susan and Gale, Our cats are family and they are so much fun to watch! Two of the cats seem to
know when my back is hurting and they lay on each side of me. They are such a comfort to me.
They are so much fun to watch.

Aahhhh!  I think they can sense when you don't feel good or you are bothered about something.  Jinx watches how he steps around me so he doesn't hurt me and he lays so close it's unbelievable.  I just love our little furry family!

I do have one major complaint.......
I spend a lot of time in the kitchen baking.  Badcat thinks I need the company so he stretches out in front of the oven. 
I'm mixing dough to the left and trying to get to the 'fridge on the right.   Nothing I say or do will make him move.

Jinx does the same thing Nancy!!  I get nervous because I am afraid that I will step on his paw or might spill something hot on him.  But he will NOT move!  I think it's because that don't want to miss anything that might fall (open game) or just in case we might want to give them a sample...heaven forbid they might miss something. lol lol

They are all just too funny!

Around 3 - 3:30 I got up to go to the bathroom ........ There was some big, strange, pale mess on the bedroom floor so I hit the light  It was a destroyed roll of toiled tissue.  I think it was Badcat who removed it from the spare roll holder in the bathroom and carried it to the bedroom.   He worked hard with his teeth and back claws to rip that big roll into tiny pieces.
I went back to bed.
When I got up the roll had been torn into even tinier pieces and spread out more.  What a mess.

And for months I haven't been able to put tissue in the "normal" holder .... both of the monsters love to unroll it.  I have to wedge tissue behind the faucet.    I wonder if I can remember to always close the door behind me.

Carol ...... Wink IT'S NOT FUNNY
  I left all the scrambled, shredded toilet paper on the floor so the kids would have something exciting to play with ..... That's with all the tangled yarn spread from room to room.
I worry about somebody coming to visit and seeing this hideous mess.

And last night I had to package a dozen little bags of different candies for my art class at church ..... the bags and stuff are still in the sink and all over the kitchen counter.  Instead of cleaning it up I'm sitting here talking.  But RIGHT NOW I have to get going ......... I'm  expected for a group breakfast this morning and then I head to church to put together a book case then paint and paint and paint.

And as I zip around the Internet (well, try to) and type here, little Peaches is curled up on the piece of table in front of my laptop, her head across my left arm.  She's sound asleep.
Oh, how I love these cats

I am so mad at one of our dogs.  He got into the garbage and when I tried to take it away from him he bit me on my left hand.  He didn't break skin but it still hurt like Heck.  No I didn't beat him as some of my friends suggested.  He was an abuse case when I got him so its really hard when he is bad for me to hit him as that would be like the abuse he came from.  Hubby actually left trash in a small can.  I guess our dogs loves twinkie wrappers and ice cream sandwiches wrappers.  I was more angry with hubby than I was with the dog.  Who is the adult here and the trash should be in the kitchen can not in t small can next to his chair!

Nancy, I can't remember if you like coffee or not but, coffee cans make great toilet paper holders when your pets love to shred it!. You can leave the lid intact or cut a large X in it and thread the paper up thru it.

ElsaM, Use the shaken bean can method to reprimand your dog. You put a handful of beans in a clean, dry can and cover the top with saran or wax paper and tape it on tight with duct tape or packing tape. When the pets do something wrong, shake the can at them and tell them no. Even an abused animal has to learn the do's and don'ts of control. And an animal that bites its master for any reason can go after smaller people that they feel threaten them. I had one that tried that and I used a belt. Not to hit him but, I folded it in half and pushed it together and snapped it so it popped. My animals love us and no longer try to intimidate us by biting or snapping at us. I can just pick up the belt and they sit down and wait for a command.

Wa-Ha K  --  first of all, how are you feeling today?
I SAVE plastic coffee cans!!  (I just used a stack of them with the kids in art class at church.  We used the plastic, 1lb ?  Folgers can to make money banks.)  I have two or three cans on hand right now - all cleaned, labels removed, ready to go and your suggestion is the best I've heard in a long time.  Thank you!!
Last night hateful Badcat got another roll.  He's so funny.  When I go to the bathroom that big sweetheart travels with me, plops in the sink, scratches his head on the faucet and PURRRRRRs
