Cat (vs) Raccoon

Raccoon gets kicked off porch, calmly shuffles down the stairs making its way to the water aaaaaand ...then proceeds to sit and aim it right at the cat!

He's clearly done this before.

Zen and the Art of Meditating with your Dog.
So I've discovered something kind of odd. Some background: I'm a Quaker.  But we're a weird, sort of hippie-ish people, so I occasionally enjoy worshipping with other faith traditions and experiencing spirituality through others' eyes.  This spring, I was h...

"A dog's life is unbearably tragic."
A dog's life is unbearably tragic. The dog didn't know why he had become separated from his first pack. They seemed to have simply wandered off and lost their way without the aid of his keen tracking abilities. Humans are kin...

I recently re-listened to the Mayoral Debate episode of "Welcome to Night Vale" (http://commonplacebooks.com/) and was reminded how much I love "the weather" from that episode.  Definitely my favorite musical interlude from any of their episodes to date.

Self-washing cat
The apartment complex has to turn off our water supply for like 5 hours tomorrow for repairs or something. I wouldn't be surprised if a pipe burst somewhere in the blizzard on Monday. Having grown up in a house with a well, I know the protocol for situation...

Gilly's Adventure at the Alexandria Monthly Meeting Spring Picnic

Theres a new puppy in the neighborhood - a teeeeny tiny, very young golden retriever. Only 8 weeks old, and he already knows how to "sit" and "stay" in two languages. And he has adorable blue-grey eyes. I'm trying to make sure Theo is around him as much as ...

A walk in the Purr-ambulator
Gilly is an indoor cat. And we have a pretty small apartment. Its not surprising then, that every now and then he makes a break for the great outdoors. Usually, this takes the form of him bolting out the front door under our feet and making us chase him all...
