Queen of the Windowsill…

Posted by Les Becker on May 12, 2018 in Fur-Babies |

Between the construction across the street, the yelly people on the sidewalk, and the fact that the dog can’t fit on the windowsill, Luna has claimed her crown. She spends a LOT of time in the bay window. I’m not sure what’s going to happen once I bring that patio table back down into the […]

Mothra Strikes Again…

Posted by Les Becker on March 4, 2016 in Fur-Babies, Real Life |

The cute little girl-cat-turned-boy-cat-that-has-grown-to-unforeseen-monstrous-proportions-considering-he’s-maybe-only-9-months-old has got himself a new favourite activity. He eats my clothes. It started with socks and underwear. Then he moved up to pajama pants and the straps of my camisole shirts (followed quickly by the bellies of my camisole shirts), the sleeves of my long-sleeved (ha!) jersey shirts that are part […]

He Sleeps the Sleep of Hell’ry Raised…

Tricksy Sleepin

Tricksy spent the entire morning chasing one old cat or the other, and wrestling the dog. As I write this, all of the animals are asleep in the same room, at the same time. Things could go to hell in a hand-basket in very short order. Hopefully, I’ll post again tomorrow… Random Song for-the-Day: “Hold […]

He’s Settling In – He Owns the Whole Damned Cat Tree, Now…

Posted by Les Becker on November 3, 2015 in Fur-Babies, Little Bits of Stupid, Real Life |

Tricksy the Not-Girl Cat has settled in to the point that he has taken over all the cat toys and now owns the cat tree as well. He tends not to pay much attention to it, unless Luna decides to climb it, whereupon he tears up the side of it and removes her forcibly. He […]

How to Spend a Wednesday…

This is how I, too, would have liked to be spending today, were it at all possible…

She Finally Chewed Through the Glow Stick…

The Loudest Man I Ever Slept With…

Posted by Les Becker on July 24, 2009 in R.I.P., Real Life, Video... |

Insomnia by Cat I took this video in May, when Sheikh was still sleeping above my head. Not very long ago, he was his usual fat and fluffy self, but then became boney and light as air in a few short weeks. He eventually stopped eating altogether. He hid out most of the time, and […]

We Have Our Winner!

“You’re not Morgan Freeman!” The winning caption was written by Dale of Passion of the Dale, a fellow Canuckian, I might add. No, I didn’t “fix” it. I’m not that patriotic. And those that didn’t win, not to mention those that didn’t enter the contest (shame on you!), can get a copy of Natalie d’Arbeloff’s […]

This is About as Exciting as It Gets…

Lazin' Around

My life is fairly straight-forward and routine-oriented. I really like it that way. If there’s going to be any excitement, I’d like to plan it, trouble-shoot it, and control all aspects of it, thank you very much. Patchouli, the cute little fur-ball you see above, feels otherwise. She has, in fact, been the cause of […]

Where Did the Time Go?

Posted by Les Becker on March 16, 2008 in Real Life |

Where Did the Time Go?Taken March 1, 2008 with Canon PowerShot A550 Whew! That was a hiatus I would rather not have taken. The Real World sucks compared to this one, it really does. That said, it could be added that my time “away” basically consisted of two types of events: losses and gains. These […]
