Jetty vs. the Holiday Decorations

We’re so excited for Jetty’s very first Christmas! In the three months she’s been with us, we’ve seen her high energy level so we had a good idea that Jetty and Christmas decorations might not be a good mix. We were right. Back in November, I started setting up little trees for photos. Jetty was […]

Wishing You a Happy Thanksgiving!

Before everyone heads off on their Thanksgiving fun, we want to take a moment to thank you for sharing a part of your day with us! We love that you follow our furry family here on the blog and on Facebook; it means the world to us. Yesterday we shared our thankfulness for Jetty and […]

Jetty vs. the TV #WordlessWednesday

Thank you all so much for your messages and kind wishes while Jetty has been recuperating from her spay surgery. I’m SO happy to report that her 10-day healing period is up, although we’re still trying to keep her from major jumping and climbing. She did so great in her pop-up crate, and I’ll be […]

Spay Day!

This week has been a little quiet here; on Monday morning, Jetty had her spay surgery! She’s doing great and returned home Monday afternoon. Monday she was still groggy, so she didn’t mind the cone (which is a nice soft one that flips back for eating) or the dog crate we have set up for […]

Wordless Wednesday: Kitten Shots and Rainstorms

Yesterday we headed in for the next round of Jetty’s kitten shots, a visit that went much smoother than her first time at our vet’s office (a time when she bounced around the room, tried to land on the one-inch chair railing, and wound up landing on our vet’s HEAD.) Now that she’s got this […]

Jetty Joins the Family

Our little Jetty has been in our home a week and a half now–and you’d think that she’d been born here! It’s hard to believe that at the end of August Jetty found herself on a transport out of Victoria, Texas and to Austin, thanks to Austin Pets Alive. We found these photos from her […]

Thank you for helping Hurricane Harvey-battered shelter!

Thank you all SO much for your purchases and social shares of our fundraiser this Labor Day weekend to benefit the City of Port Aransas Animal Shelter! As you know, this coastal community has long been one of our favorite destinations to take Irie and Tiki–and on August 25 they were battered by Hurricane Harvey. […]

Meet Jetty!

In yesterday’s post, we told you about our new kitty’s adoption from Austin Pets Alive. She was one of the shelter pets evacuated from Hurricane Harvey: We’ve Adopted a Kitten! Well, today we have a name! Meet Jetty! Originally Jetty’s name was Sunday: We’ve always changed our pets’ names after adoption (except Yoda…because he really […]

We’ve Adopted a Kitten!

We’ve got a new, three-month-old kitten! Yesterday we went down to Austin Pets Alive’s Town Lake shelter–from which we adopted Lucky and Ochi–to donate and to see their adoptables. We weren’t sure we were quite ready to adopt so soon after Ochi’s passing but right now there are so, so many animals needing homes in […]

Did Our Hummingbirds Predict Harvey?

As you know, our cats have a catio that looks out on birdfeeders–both seed and suet feeders and, from spring through early fall, hummingbird feeders. The hummingbirds usually depart central Texas in about mid-September, on their way to Mexico and points south for the winter–but two weeks ago we noticed an absence of hummingbirds. Whereas […]
