Ruby’s Reflections

Allegra, Ruby and the Cable Box

cat-on-cable-box

No matter how many cat beds I put around the house, the top of the cable box is one of the most coveted napping spots, especially during the colder months. Allegra and Ruby must have worked out a schedule, because they both seem to get equal time on it. All of my cats over the years have always enjoyed napping on the cable box, and these things must be pretty sturdy, because I can  only imagine the amount of cat hair that ends up inside.Continue Reading

Hi everyone, it’s Ruby! I want to tell you about the cool new thing that came in the mail the other day! It was addressed to Allegra and me, but as soon as Mom took this particular item out of the box, I knew it was meant for me. It’s my own little cave! Mom said I need to describe it better than that, and she started to use all sorts of big words, so why don’t I let her tell you what it is.Continue Reading

Allegra, Ruby and the Secret Birthday Post

Hi everyone, it’s Allegra and Ruby! Mom had one of her super smart posts about some super important topic scheduled for today, but we snuck out of the bedroom once she was fast asleep last night, and rescheduled it for next week. At first we were going to delete it, but then we realized that maybe Mom would get mad at us if we did that….

Allegra: Ruby, you know better than that. Mom never gets mad at us.

Ruby: She does at me! Continue Reading

Allegra, Ruby and the Dental Treat

Dental health is vitally important to cats. Brushing is the most effective way to prevent dental disease – and before you say you couldn’t possibly brush your cat’s teeth, let me tell you that I never thought I’d be able to get Allegra and Ruby used to having their teeth brushed, but with patience and persistence, it has become part of our nightly routine to the point where the girls will actually “remind” me on the occasional night when I get sidetracked (they start pacing in the kitchen in front of the counter where I keep their brushes and toothpaste.)

After their nightly brushing, the girls each get a C.E.T. Dental Chew Treat.Continue Reading

Allegra, Ruby and the Great Bug Hunting Adventure

The other night, the girls had a big bug hunting adventure, and they wanted to share it with you. I don’t know who had more fun: the girls or me. They were utterly fascinated by this new “toy” in our living room. I was thoroughly entertained watching them try to catch the bug. The level of teamwork they displayed was remarkable; I swear I could hear them strategize on how to best approach this hunt!

But why don’t I let them tell you in their own words.Continue Reading

Ruby’s Reflections: 3rd Adoption Anniversary

cat_adoption

Hi, everyone, it’s Ruby! Today is a very special day for me: three years ago today, my mom brought me home! The last three years have been the best!

Look at the fun collage Mom of kitten pictures that made for me for my anniversary! My favorite is the one of Mom holding my carrier, the day she picked me up from my foster family. She looks so happy. Mom says I still look like a kitten, but I’m a big girl now!

I can’t wait to see what Allegra and Ruby have planned for me today. I hope it involves tuna! Yummy!
