April: A Month of Books, Busyness and Blossoms

April is the crazy month at work, hence the silence on the blog. But, fear not, I have a huge update and lots of good things to share. So grab a cuppa something nice and sit back. First, let’s get… Continue Reading →

Bed Wedge Pillow from CSN Stores

I was approached a few months ago by CSN Stores about doing a product review. I had noticed the reviews around the blogosphere and was curious to check out the products. A number of book bloggers had selected book cases… Continue Reading →

The Cat is My Hat

Did the title make you do a double take? Let me explain. As you can see in this photo, Henry has his own pillow covered with a lovely fleece blanket right beside my pillow. This is because he used to… Continue Reading →

Raising awareness for abused animals

A recreational tourism company in Whistler, BC is being investigated for animal cruelty. It is so sad and shocking to hear of the mass slaughtering of 100 sled dogs due to a ‘decline in business’ after the Vancouver 2010 Olympics…. Continue Reading →

Video: Cat Meets Bunny

I compiled this from video clips I took on the second day of Pancake’s visit. Henry is a little better but still doesn’t like when the bunny hops straight at him. P.S. You know how YouTube suggests similar videos to… Continue Reading →

Just sniffing…

Happy Whiskers on Wednesday!

House Guest

Henry’s not quite sure what to make of him. They sniff each other, they ignore each other, they frighten each other when the other moves suddenly… I’m going to be very amused for the next two weeks. The bunny’s name… Continue Reading →

When the Humans Are Away…

Do you ever wonder what kind of shenanigans and adventures your pets get up to when you’re not home? I can tell you with 99.9% certainty that Henry does exactly this: Happy Whiskers on Wednesday to the other humans out… Continue Reading →

Tiger in a Bag

Henry’s favourite toy is a large, crinkly, plastic bag. He likes to sit in them and just watch me, but he also loves to play in them too. I should remember to take a video next time he’s playing! Happy… Continue Reading →

Arrr! Pirate Cat!

Here's winking at you babe ;) Occasionally Henry gets all squinty in one of his eyes. I’ve taken him to the vet and he doesn’t have a scratch on the cornea or anything. I think sometimes he just gets a… Continue Reading →

Does this Wednesday make my Whiskers look big?

Does this box make my butt look big? Henry is a simple cat; he likes crumpled paper, plastic bags, and cardboard boxes. I usually have one for him that’s an appropriate size, but when I finished unpacking his cat food… Continue Reading →

Whiskers Nurse

Last week I was home sick with a bit of a stomach bug. Henry made sure to take good care of me and give me lots of snuggles. Please excuse the craptastic photos as I was using PhotoBooth on my… Continue Reading →

Whiskers with Windows

Henry loves watching the outdoors. He’s not suited to be outdoors unattended, so I often boost him onto the windowsill in my bedroom. At my parents’ house, he used to sit for hours in my office chair rolled up to… Continue Reading →

Whiskers on Wednesday

Henry isn’t up for Whiskers on Wednesday, so his cousin Sasafrass (my sister’s cat) is stepping in. At family dinner last Sunday my sister had her dressed in a lovely ruffle. Sasafrass absolutely loved her ruffle. It was a soft… Continue Reading →

Knitted Kitty, Sleeping Cowl

As you may know, Henry is a yarn snob. He only fondles fibres with 100% natural content. Therefore, I believed my cowl being knit with Nashua Ivy (50% alpaca, 45% merino, 5% synthetic) was safe. I thought wrong: Fortunately he… Continue Reading →

Inspecting teh New Arrivalz

We cats must inspect everything that enters our domain. We must approve of it before it is allowed to stay. Recently, mommy brought home these weirdo green things. They don’t taste as good as that bamboo-y stuff at mommy’s mom’s… Continue Reading →

New Best Friend

I’m living in a basement suite, which was fantastic when we had a heat wave this summer. But now that the temperature is dropping, these cement walls aren’t so comforting. Since the upstairs neighbours control the central heating, and the… Continue Reading →

King Henry’s Throne

Whenever this ottoman is cleared off, Henry immediately jumps on it and claims it as his new perch. Being in a basement suite, I wish he liked things a bit higher because he hasn’t looked out a window in months!… Continue Reading →

He’s Watching Me…

Whenever Henry totally relaxes and just vegges out on the carpet, he lies on his back and tends to just watch me. Then he’s start meowing and moaning until I talk to him. (If he doesn’t want attention he goes… Continue Reading →

Cat Saddle

Okay, nobody is actually riding Henry, but it’s fun to put stuff on him while he runs around the apartment. It was so hard to get a photos because he was really excited and kept rubbing up against my leg… Continue Reading →

Sophisticated Kitty

Would you like to join us for a spot of tea? Happy Whiskers on Wednesday everyone!

Mail for Henry & Me*

[Grab a cup of tea/coffee, there’s some back story to this mail and Whiskers on Wednesday.] Back during BBAW (Book Blogger Appreciation Week), I was contacted by Amy of My Friend Amy regarding making awards for the winners. Later, Trish… Continue Reading →

Book Review :: Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World

I really enjoyed Dewey, although I honestly admit to crying my eyes out at the end. Don’t worry, I’m not spoiling anything — it’s made clear from the beginning that this is written after Dewey’s time at the library. The… Continue Reading →
