With Easter coming up, I thought I’d share with you all a memory that began on Easter Sunday many years ago. When I was a duckling, we were living in a townhouse for…a few months to a year. I can’t really remember. But what I do remember is that they had a really fun Easter egg hunt for all the little kids living there, duckling or otherwise. And this particular Easter egg hunt came with the potential for special prizes… Continue reading The Duck’s Greatest Easter Egg Hunt
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. Continue reading Life Update: Empty Grocery Stores and Cuddly Kitties
That’s right, another post about the Duck’s weird dreams. This first one was a few weeks ago. In this dream, normally peaceful animals were turning violent, both wild ones and pets alike. I remember being outside seeing a squirrel running around in a very agitated fashion indeed. It was actually kind of creepy. (You see that squirrel in the banner image? Don’t trust it!) Continue reading The Duck Dreams of Dastardly Tap Water?!
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! Continue reading Updates on Rosie, Carmelita…And I Guess Me, Too
G’day, everyone, just thought I’d write a little update concerning our two new kittens, Rosalina and Carmelita. Both kittens had several vet visits recently to finish their vaccines and to take care of a little tapeworm issue, but other than that, they’ve been quite happy and healthy and have grown a bit, too! Carmelita was a whopping six pounds when last we checked, while tiny Rosalina, probably the runt, was only three or four (I forget…or she gained a pound between vet appointments). Continue reading Over a Month with Carmelita and Rosalina
I am happy to introduce you all to the two newest felines to be adopted into the Duck’s household. Named after two gaming ladies (Rosalina from Super Mario Galaxy and Carmelita from Sly Cooper), these two 9-week-old kitten sisters (predicted birthday June 23…though the papers say May 23…so are they actually three months old…? I’m so confused!!!) are Lynx Point Siamese, which basically means they’re a mix of Siamese and tabby cats. Carmelita (on the left in the banner) is the bigger, more beige one, while Rosalina (on the right) is the smaller, whiter one. Continue reading Introducing Carmelita and Rosalina!
Seeing as I am currently cat-less for the first time in four years, it is no wonder that cats have been on my mind quite a lot lately. And yet, though I deeply want to get another pet now that dear Elsa is no longer with us, I have no idea what’s going on with my life at the moment (it’s complicated), so getting a pet would currently be quite unwise. Even so, that does not mean my life is completely devoid of feline companions, because the nights of 3/6/19 and 3/7/19 were filled with dreams of these lovely, fluffy angels. Continue reading Dream Time: So Many Cats!
I had mentioned in the past that I enjoy watching a Youtube channel called Kitten Academy. They foster kitties, and in addition to regular videos about their current adoptable kitties and non-adoptable “faculty”, they also have a 24/7 live stream where you can watch kittens play to your heart’s content. Lately, however, something special has been happening that I simply must tell you all about. Continue reading Tempest and Teacup
In case you haven’t heard, the Duck lost her kitty Elsa a little over a week ago. Since the loss of my other two cats about five years ago, I have learned that memories fade far more quickly than we would like, and so I wanted to write a little bit more about her so that this post could serve as a refresher in case I ever forgot. There won’t be much rhyme or reason to this post, other than to recount a few memories that I don’t think I’ve discussed prior. Continue reading Memoirs of Elsa Part 1
