Sometimes one just has to shout it off the rooftop. :)

Getting up there (on the roof) is a real bletch though, especially when one is struggling to keep one's eyes open on account of the "marked drowsiness" one is experiencing from the Benadryl one is taking to quell the raging, ferociously itchy stress-related dermatitis (aka rash) all over one's knees.

Now, see that (rash comment up there)? That's what some Social Media folks might call "oversharing." Yep.  [insert frantic knee scratching]

So anyway, I've been feeling particularly sentimental about my furry companions lately and decided rather than to disturb the peace outside, I'd just shout it out all over the internet. Yay!

Oh, and I took some photos today...

Yes, that's my eye.

I have no idea what we're looking at up there.

Hey, you know how some dogs get excited by a human lying face-up on the ground, and will rush in and lick the helpless human's every inch of exposed skin? 

Yes, well my dogs don't do that.  :-p

This was the best shot I could get of Dewi and me (while gripping the camera and him at the same time) . He was just too doggone busy!

So, I call this next one (below) the Cardi-cat "Hug" (or what Maddox does to show affection). He's an arm hugger. I'm not even making this up. 

Those big mitts of his make me all warm and gooey inside. :)

Sadly, I was too drowsy to take any other photos. [nods off while thinking about scratching itchy knee]

Just a heads up that Wednesday is a big V (veterinarian) day for some of us: Bertie's "donating" his balls, Jon Farleigh's getting groomed while his poop is scrutinized, and Dewi's getting a full-on once-over (with needles and butt probes), PLUS he's getting his feet and nails done.

Thank you for thinking of them in their brief time of suffering. [yawns] Terribly sorry. 

Goodnight, moon friends. :)


  1. Hope your itchy knee syndrome would go away. That must be miserable. But look at all those furry kids to act as your nurse

  2. I like a little over-sharing now and then, and that picture with the hug?? My heart just melted a little bit.

  3. LOL! I think the vet visit stuff might have been over-sharing too. Butt probes? Eeek!
    My cat Sebastian used to hug too. It was one of my favorite things about him. When we slept he always had to wrap one paw around my hand. He was an awesome cat.

  4. My little Monkey boy is an arm hugger too, it's so sweet isn't it?? Hope your knees are itch free soon! Benedryl knocks me out!!

  5. Yikes vet visit with probes and the rest. Wish you guys a quick incident free visit. Paws crossed. Have a terrific Tuesday if possible.
    Best wishes Molly

  6. Aveeno. Eczema Therapy. Moisturizing Cream. Relief.

  7. Awwww, I think I love your pets too. I hope the itch is long gone and vet visit is a breeze! I know, they never are, but there is a first time for everything, right?

  8. I sure wish some furry critter around here knew how to do the arm hug. That is so adorable!

  9. Lots of medical issues in Casa Critter. Hope your rash clears up and everyone's in good shape for Thanksgiving.

  10. May your sleep be deep, your dreams be merry and your knee be clear of itchy rashes. This is my wish for you.

  11. Oh my goodness... that arm hug... I melt.

  12. Kitty arm hugs.....that is precious! Chester and Gretel DO lick me all over if I lay on the floor...especially while I am giggling and yelling and saying "no" :)


We love comments almost as much as Reese's Peanut Butter Cups! Thank you!
