Fresh Air

The warmer weather this week is one reason that the blog has been a little quiet. Yesterday this happened for the first time this year!


Not only are Soupy and Nipsey excited to smell the fresh air, it’s like they’re getting to smell their new Chicago neighborhood for the first time, since it’s been mostly very cold since we moved here. Hooray for spring!

Bonus bathtub shot with Nipsey!


Happy Catsgiving

I’ve decided that it’s now a Thanksgiving tradition to share a photo of one of my cats impersonating a turkey.


Nipsey just needs the sides and he’ll be all set!

I have so many things to be thankful for this year: healthy family and friends, a supportive husband, a nice home in a new city, and all of you who give me joy and inspiration and make my job possible. Thank you!

Lots of less fortunate people are dealing with hardship and loss right now. If you can, today’s a great day to give to organizations like Doctors without Borders, the Red Cross, and the UN Refugee Agency.

And this would be the post-turkey scene in our household.


Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! And Happy Hanukkah too!

Happy Thanksgiving!


We’ve got a couple of post-turkey cats here!

I’m thankful for my family and my awesome job, and for each of you— thank you for your support, enthusiasm, and friendship!

And especially since the hurricane, I’m thankful to have an undamaged home with electricity and heat. If you haven’t yet, one good way to celebrate today is by giving to the Red Cross or another organization helping those who lost their homes in the storm.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Happy Valenfeline’s Day

Nipsey and Soupy send you their love!


Unless you’re a rubber band or a wadded up napkin, in which case, they will send you TO YOUR DEATH.

Cat is the new Pillow

I’m traveling today, so that means my blog gets a silly cat photo!


Soupy is such a funny sleeper, and Nipsey often patiently plays the role of his pillow.
