Cats, Computers and Mayhem

by Kimberly A. Cook

Nothing like a Friday to cheer me up. Full tilt into Olympics viewing, so time to check in on those working around us; computer cats. My own trials with Spec Ops Cat and the computer don’t hold a candle to these dedicated felines.

Think we should rename them cattops instead of laptops!

Put your cat to work, cozy up to the tv and work up a sweat cheering for our athletes! Go Cats! Go Team USA!

Have a great safe, weekend and Happy Quirky Friday!

Go Condors, Butterflies and Turtles!

by Kimberly A. Cook

I know this is Super Bowl weekend and these teams are not in the game, but they’re still winning! Since this week we’re celebrating victories, thought it was a great time to check out the Oregon Zoo’s conservation accomplishments for 2017.

And I’ve never seen anything cuter than a pygmy rabbit. Seriously! But the western pond turtle is a looker too.

Stock up on chips and dips, don’t forget Kitten Bowl Five on the Hallmark Channel, and root for the condors, butterflies, turtles and pygmy rabbits!

Have a great, safe weekend and Happy Quirky Friday!

Time For A Surfing Pig?

by Kimberly A. Cook

Busy week. With that in mind, I decided we all needed a sun and swim break. What better way to warm up in the winter than surfing in Hawaii. With a pig. Who has his own board and two GoPro cameras. Because why not?

If you need to schedule some playtime in your life, take pointers from Kama, the hanging ten porker. Hang loose.

Have a great weekend and Happy Quirky Friday!

Resolutions Already Toast?

by Kimberly A. Cook

Gave up making resolutions years ago. I work with goals and try to fool myself. For those of us who did make resolutions and they are broken, blame it on the cat.

Check out how Simon’s cat is helping with resolutions.

Happy Quirky Friday everybody! Have a great, safe, long weekend.

Happy Cat Ball Pit Friday

by Kimberly A. Cook

If you’ve got boxes left over from the holidays and want to make your cat happy, how about making this giant ball pit? With the NFL playoff games this weekend, it will seem like you’re doing something while watching tv. Making the cat happy? Priceless.

Cole and Marmalade show how to get aerobic with this new contraption. I think Cole has some killer pool shark moves.

Hope your first week of the new year was good and you didn’t freeze your giblets off.  Totally cold in the old USA right now. We are at a balmy 40 degrees with rain expected in Oregon, so we’re having a heat wave compared to everybody else.

Keep warm, make toys for your cats and have a great weekend. Happy Quirky Friday!

Bring On 2018!

by Kimberly A. Cook

It has been a really nutty year. Many times I felt like we were in a squirrel rodeo combined with a rat race and a bad SciFi movie. Imagine my delight to find out we are not alone, even the squirrels have wacko race events.

While we kick 2017 to the curb to start a shiny New Year on Monday, let’s practice the Golden Rule, be kind to others and help each other out. We’ve got work to do to save the polar bears and each other in 2018.

But this weekend it is chips and dip time. Regroup and gear up.

Happy New Year and Happy Quirky Friday! Hugs to you all!

Happy Holidays Everyone

by Kimberly A. Cook

With the holiday weekend getting into full swing now, it’s time to hunker down with friends, family, pets and relax. For a few hours this world slows down a bit, doesn’t stop, but takes a little break. Let’s celebrate our blessings, each other and fabulous goodies.

In our family the odd years have always been a challenge and this has been an ODD year. So here’s to eggnog toasts, holiday treats, and an even numbered year coming fast.

One reason we can all take a break is because we have military, law enforcement, fire, medical and transportation elves standing by to help if needed. A huge thank you to all our military, city, county, state and federal workers who watch our backs so we can party.

Have a very merry Holiday season everybody. Safe sleigh driving!
