Julia Child Liked Cats

Friday evening, we tried to watch Julia and give the foster kittens some downstairs time. Currently, we are fostering four kittens. Horton, Logan, and Quartermaine have been with us since August 2021 (about nine months old now), while Molly Lansing-Davis joined us in October 2021 (about 7 months). Her two sisters were adopted last month. […]

I Put Up a Christmas Tree For My Feral Cat Colony

We have three Christmas trees this year. Our main living room tree in its usual corner spot, wedged in with a rocking chair and a few cat beds to avoid feline fiascos. It has lights and cat-friendly ornaments. It is lovely. I could watch the lights for hours. Of course, we put no gifts out […]

We’ve Fostered 24 Kittens Since 2018

Dear friends, I hope you are having a safe and healthy holiday season. Laura and I are well. We did not expect to spend nearly our entire first year as a married couple in a pandemic, but we are both triple vaccinated, practicing social distancing, and wearing our masks.

Update on the #DavisGirls Foster Kittens from Pittsburgh’s Northside

These three six-week-old kittens from #AlleghenyWest had a rough start with limited food sources and Mama bullied by other community cats. I trapped them last week over the course of five nights.

We Seized Day 184: a saga of Stefano DiMera and Spencer Cassadine

It had been a typical Wednesday. Laura was working at the kitchen table while I focused on the Pittsburgh MasQUe ProjecT from the sofa. I went upstairs to prepare for my tele-health therapy session. Afterwards, I took a nap. Foster kittens Stefano DiMera and Spencer Cassadine were in the bedroom with me. Stefano slept near […]

Day 177: Not Much To Say, I Guess

There’s certainly a lot going on, things to discuss and unpack. But I’m struggling to condense information into any semblance of a blog post. We took the evening off from the news to go pick up a leather elephant for our youngest nibling. Then we curled up in bed while foster cat Spencer had his […]

Day Five of COVID-19 Quarantine: How to not kill your domestic partner

Working from home with pets

So we’ve been home since the weekend. Okay, technically I have been home since 2010. Laura has been working from home since Tuesday. Random observations The load on our wi-fi (FIOS) is significant. We are being careful to turn off devices to minimize lag time. That’s slightly annoying. We are also keeping devices, especially our […]
