Belly Up!

For a moment I was tempted to NOT post this picture because I thought "everyone will get sick of seeing pictures of Stinkerbell being cute."

Then I realized that if you get sick of it, you'll just not come back anymore and that's YOUR issue, not mine.


The ONLY time you can view her pretty belly is when she is sleeping VERY deeply. She had been sleeping like this on my lap under a blanket and decided she was hot, so she slid off the couch, went back to sleep on the floor and then rolled over.

Tonight we discovered that Stinkerbell loves Blue Diamond Almonds in the "Jalapeno Smokehouse" variety. She also loves the "Wasabi Soy" flavor. A lot. She was hanging from the side of the can trying to get some.

She's been following Scott all around the house and climbing all over him every time he sits down.

I guess I shouldn't be surprised considering she loves jalapenos themselves.

A New Love

Stinkerbell discovered Peanut Butter. She's a fan.

Ready for Travel?

Several of my coworkers have asked how we intend to get all the animals to the new house (in another state and about a 13-hour drive away).

When I moved from Washington state, Scott and I drove in my Honda with the back seats folded down and the litter box in the trunk so the cats could use it any time they wanted. We also had a medium sized dog kennel in the car for them to hang out in if they wanted to or for when we had to transport them inside somewhere.

Since this trip will not be as long, I think we'll do something pretty similar. Whenever Stinkerbell has taken the hour-long trip to the vet she has slept the entire way, either on a lap or on our shoulders.

I'm anticipating that the cats and the skunk will go with me in the Honda and Buster (the dog) will ride in the BMW with Scott. I think the cats and skunk should be able to co-exist in that amount of space, and Stinkerbell will likely sleep the entire drive.

Sharp Teeth

Stinkerbell has tapeworms. I found a little "rice" bit on our bed, as she's been sleeping with us for a few hours every night.

I called the vet and they okay'd giving her a cat de-wormer, which is fine in ideology, but a bit tough in practice.

The size of the pill is bigger than her throat and after a few attempts at shoving it down her and getting bit I decided to break it up into some cottage cheese.

I think she ate all of it.

My finger hurts.

Stinkerbell is going to officially become a "Cat". Ok?

Everyone got that? She's now a kitty with a very fluffy tail.
