A Tail Would Have Been Better

This morning I step onto my patio to go to work. There was half a lizard laying on his back. Not just the tail, which they can regrow.... No, literally half a lizard. The poor lil guy looked like a shark victim from Jaws.

You will be glad I skipped the photo op.

Even better, I tried to sweep him off the porch and he.... Started.... Wiggling....

I was, and still am, thoroughly squicked out. I guess I should have dispatched him completely but I just couldn't.

So, why? Did my feral choose my patio for a snack and got bored with half? Was this a tip for the meal service I provide? I really hope this doesn't become a habit!

Happy Friday.

Today my sister and I went to Maclay Gardens, a beautiful state park here in Tallahassee. It has a very nice lake, picnic tables, and so on. (It also has gators but we aren't talking about those today.)

After we paid the entry fee and were driving to the picnic area, guess what crossed the road in front of us??? Yep, a beautiful big kittycat. Sadly I have no pics but trust me, he was pretty awesome. Seeing him made my whole day. 

I do have pics of the ebil squirrel that stalked us for our lunch. Seriously, he WOULD NOT go away. We had to keep shooing him off. I draw the line at feeding park squirrels, my friends. 

If you should ever visit the City of Too Many Trees, make time for this park. It also has a section for flower gardens.

But Wait. We DO Have the Best Option!

Don't despair, friends and visitors. The lovely and mega-floofy
Coconut Rice Bear has just announced her candidacy, and I for one am very excited.

Click here for her speech on Facebook (has subtitles for us humans).

We're saved!

The Burning Question of the Week -


1. I think the world wants to know. I've seen stories in many major online publications already.

2. I believe journalism is a noble profession. For many, I would even go so far as to say it's a calling.

3. That weasel is NOT a journalist. He's a sensation seeker, at best, one step above the National Enqu.

4. I don't believe he actually cared about Mr. Embassy Kitteh; that poor feline was just a tactic to gain sympathy and attention.

5. Seriously, dude, you had to be carried out like a moldy old carpet? Even Lori and Felicity had the grace to walk on their own legs to their court appointments.

**** I am sure that at this very moment, many are scrambling around to find out what
happened to Mr. Embassy Cat. They all want to be the first to announce where he went.

My girl would want you to know that she, too, had a bed-centered ritual. Whenever she wanted to come visit me, she would go to the right side of the bed, stretch up and scratch her claws on the side of the mattress. Every. Single. Time. Then she'd jump. Of course, she weighed nothing so it was often hard to know she had jumped up. Even still, her scratching was barely noticeable. 

Unlike Toby, who had the weight of a small pony, and there was never any mistaking when he got on the bed. Or even walking on the floor, I could always hear the click click of his nails.

In other news....

I was so very sorry to hear of the loss of Miss Newton from Colehaus Cats.
So many of my blogging furriends have passed or are passing on.
Right now the losses are hitting me very hard.

A conclusion...
I'm very glad to have an end to the work squirrel story. The company came back the next day
and finally discovered the sad remains in the AC duct return.

Now go out and enjoy this spring weekend!!!

An Unfortunate Consequence.

Remember the squirrel story from the other day? Something got to it.

It's in the ceiling. Maybe the wall.

Trouble is, no one can find it.

But we can all smell it.

My entire workplace is permeated with it. I'm waiting on a professional to come find it for us.
