I'm doing well. I woke up too hot in a nice warm cat pile! I came home from house sitting and two of my three thought my bed was a good place to have a slumber party!

Awwwww. Glad you made it home ok! And assuming your brother made it back in one piece to his doggy

My older brother (when we were all much younger) made an early living off of petsitting for people in my dad's office. It turned quite profitable, being army brats, there were always people out and about traveling over weekends and such.

Oh yeah when I was with my sister in FL I had a pet sitting business. And in HS school that's how i made extra cash but then housesitting was added to the list once I got a car.

My brother made it back just fine. And his dog got returned to him and I went home to my troop.

The stray cat came out and rubbed me all over today. Apparently I now belong to her.

No. I'm mostly worried about getting her to the vet to get her fixed.

My Maine Coon cat is such a terror, and her nickname Shi**y Kitty fits her nicely. She gets upset when you change the litter box, if you leave the bag laying around and she finds it she'll rip it open. She always has to be the first one to tank the litter box. As a kitten she used to lay in the litter box.

Her new thing? If I let her out of the room she runs into the new cats litter box and goes to the bathroom in it. Then when I scold her she runs off with a little hop in her step and tail straight in the air like haha I win.

When I use the bathroom she has to be in there with me, and we fight for toilet paper. She usually wins the fight and I am left with shredded tp everywhere.

I swear it's like dealing with a child.

My stray long-haired black cat is probably the best behaved I've ever had. He's pretty moody sometimes, but he almost never scratches or bites (at least not hard). And he mostly stays off the counter, and as long as he has a scratching post, he doesn't scratch on the couch. He does like to bully the little cats, though. Although I think he is trying to play sometimes. He was next to me in bed when I went to sleep.

One of the kittens is very stubborn, though. She's improved, but she still gets on the counter sometimes. Occasionally I'll catch her, her sister, or my sister's cat scratching on the couch. Overall, though, they're well-behaved.

I don't think I've ever had a nightmare cat. Though my sister's cat is named Butthead, because that's what he is sometimes.

Just thought I would share-

My kitties are lovin' the new house we bought for them. They said hubby and I could stay as long as we like, just freshen up the litter and mind the food bowls.

Oh, and Olive is having a blast hauling butt from underneath the drapes and scaring his sister into running into the wall....

Happy Tuesday fellow kitty lovers

I don't have any pictures, and I'm living in an appartment that doesn't allow pets, but cats are cute.
