C is for not so Curious Cat ;)

cPumpkin joined our family in September 2015. (You can read various stories about him and my other furry family members herehere and here )Never before have I had a cat. Didn’t quite know what to expect, was scared he’d start peeing all over the place (I’ve heard of the cats that would do that!) or pooping into shoes(!!!) just in spite. Conversations I pump1had with cat-owners I knew only calmed me down for a bit. Because – oh yeah, their cats might be just soooo cute, good
and litter-trained, but WHAT IF…

Yeah, those “whatifs” were killing me 🙂

Turns out – Pumpkin somehow was already litter trained (even though as I read in adoption papers, he pump2came to the shelter with his back legs covered in urine 😦 I am trying not to imagine why and how…), and almost never misses 🙂 almost never – because (gross alert!) sometimes chunks of poop sticks to his longish fur and gets out of the litter box… Well, I wouldn’t say it was his fault exactly, but we are on the look for surprises. 🙂pump3

Anyhow – to the topic now. I’ve discovered that the “curiosity killed the cat” saying is a lie!!! WHEN does he have a chance to be curious, if 3/4 of his day he
spends sleeping?? and a good chunk of the awake time – eating? 😀 Huh! Nope. Not curious 🙂

But…. Isn’t he CUTE though? 😀 😀 😀




A Furry Tale

Once upon a time, there was a Bun 😀 His name was Lucky. lakus

He was a funny, cute and sweet bun, who loved chewing cords…  We thought he was perfectly happy living with us, but we just happened to find out there is a miniature bun living in a barn, because his owners just like that – gave him up after few years… so we thought – maybe they’d bond? And we took the other bun…

…Named him PatchesIMG_0071

He was probably the most calm bun I’ve ever had 🙂 loved to cuddle 🙂  We were hoping that after we get him neutered, we can attempt to bond the two…


Unfortunately – Lucky got very very sick and we had to make a hard decision – put him down and let him hop through the rainbow meadows…

Couldn’t stand the emptiness after Lucky left… so we adopted a beautiful girl named Flippy. IMG_0264

The two bonded beautifully… IMG_1190

2 years later we thought we should get a different species animal… 😉 that’s how one beautiful day we welcomed Cleo to our house 😀


Sadly, this tiny bundle of joy lived very fast and very short 😦 was with us only 9 months, later I researched and found out that those tiny little guys only live to be about 10-12 months… 😦 too bad, because even though she was not too tamed, she was such a sweet little thing, so much fun to watch…

Flippy and Patches spent a wonderful 4 years together… Patches got older and started fading out 😦 It was very hard to see him go…

But predictably – we couldn’t stand the emptiness and thought Flippy could use a friend too… so we adopted a companion for Flippy. Bonding went very well, not that there is a big love between them, but they like each other enough 😉 IMG_1564

Cute as two buttons, silky-soft, little mischievous (but hey, they are bunnz, aren’t they? 🙂 ).

And then their human (guess that’d be me? 😉 ) thought – how about another furry kid? 😀 And it just so happened  there was an “adopt-a-thon” in the local shelter… 😀 That’s how Pumpkin came to our home and life 🙂

Yup, he already met the bunnz 😀

Very cautiously optimistic I am about it, so far no attacks, no aggression. All meetings are under a strict supervision 🙂 but pictures like that fill me up with such joy…. 😀
