Cat Naps in People Laps

I haven’t talked about my Siamese cat sisters, Rosalina and Carmelita, all that much lately, so I thought I would, once again, recount a few things about my precious, little angels. Because you can never talk too much about your pets. To start, both cats like sitting on Mother Duck’s lap. Usually, Carmelita sits on her lap during the first half of the day, and Rosalina sits on her lap in the evenings. I have no idea why they won’t sit on me during the day time, but…

Christmas 2020: Vintage Movies, Cat Toys, and Lots of Funkos

Late though it may be, I wanted to share with you all how my Christmas went this year.  Despite 2020 being a wacky time indeed, Mother Duck and I still managed to have a pleasant little Christmas with our Siamese kitties Rosalina and Carmelita, who also got a little something for Christmas.  From movies to gifts, below is just a little summary of how Christmas 2020 went for the Duck of Indeed.

Spatchcocked Turkey and Cat Towers

Thanksgiving was last week, and though my post is a tad late, getting a post published the day after the holiday it’s about isn’t too easy.  So I didn’t.  Ahem, I just thought I’d write a little bit about how our Thanksgiving went, along with a little gift we got for our lovely Siamese cats, Rosalina and Carmelita.

Carmelita and Rosalina Learn to Share

I’m not sure when I last talked about “the beans” (AKA our Siamese kitty sisters Rosalina and Carmelita), but any day not spent discussing adorable kittens is one day too many.  (They are no longer technically kittens, but in my mind, they will be babies forever.)  Today, I wanted to write about how cooperative our little kitties have become with each other.

A Surprise from Beneath the Blanket: A Kitty Story

Seeing as our two Siamese kitten sisters, Rosalina and Carmelita, have proven to be an endless source of entertainment and silliness, I thought I’d write about another goofy story.  Since we’re currently living in a rental, we have a huge pile of boxes overtaking the dining area.  (Who uses dining rooms anyway when you can eat dinner on the couch in front of the TV…?)  And our cats love chewing on cardboard, so we have a blanket on two of the boxes to prevent our feisty felines from tugging on a few bits of cardboard that have become loose.  This story revolves around the fact that Rosie enjoys napping on this blanket and Carmelita’s obsession with going under blankets.

The Great Grape Massacre of 2020

If you’ve been following along with the Duck’s blog for the past year, then you’ll know we got two Siamese kittens back in August of 2019.  They are now a little over a year old, but as naughty as ever.  At the moment, they seem to have a great obsession with getting on the kitchen counter, and no amount of discipline has yet been able to dissuade them.  The only positive aspect of this obvious lack of respect for rules and boundaries is that it has led to three rather humorous tales.

Three Random Tails About Carmelita

Good day, everyone!  I always like to write about interesting things that have happened, both for sharing with you all and for myself to read about years down the road.  And before I forget, I’d like to share a few silly stories about one of our two Siamese kittens, Carmelita.  Rosalina, being the friendlier of the two, gets a lot of attention, and sometimes it’s good to focus especially on our dear Charmin’ Carmen.

Life Update: Empty Grocery Stores and Cuddly Kitties

Hope everyone’s doing well.  Now that we’re several weeks into this COVID-19 thing, I can’t get over how quickly and unexpectedly life can change.  One moment, our top goal in life is to find a new home so we can move out of our rental.  The next, we’re discouraged from even leaving the house, let alone the whole state, and our top struggle is finding toilet paper rather than a new home.

Updates on Rosie, Carmelita…And I Guess Me, Too

I think it’s been a while since I last updated you guys about my two new kittens, Carmelita and Rosalina.  One notable change is how much louder they are.  Even as I type this, Rosalina is yelling at me even though lunch is 20 minutes away!  Seriously, these are very talkative kitties.  Carmelita still has a loud, normal meow, while Rosalina has a weird meow that sounds more like a duck quacking.  Except it’s way louder and more frequent now.  I find it hilarious that such an adorable kitty has such an ugly sounding meow!
