Hello Internet! I know that it’s been forever. I’m trying to figure out my school/life balance, and blogging has kind of fallen by the wayside… for now… I’m determined to get back into the swing of things here soon. But for now, other things are taking priority.
Today I wanted to share a list with you. This is a list of things you may hear somebody in our apartment tell the cats. I say at least one of these things Every. Single. Day. It turns out when you are raising two kittens, you are constantly monitoring where they are (never where they belong) and telling them what are not. So, for instance, when Winston climbs onto the coffee table (approximately 863 times a day), somebody ends up yelling “cats aren’t coffee!” and then we move him and five minutes later we have to tell him again.
Here is a by no means complete list of things our cats think they are, which in fact they are not.
- Mixed drinks
- Craft supplies
- Dirty dishes
- Work essentials
- Car keys
- Nighttime essentials
- Electrical cords
- Perishable items
- Nonperishable items
- Garbage (yes… yes they are)
- Window dressings
- Christmas decorations
- Cleaning supplies
- Smart (at least mine aren’t)
Do any of these sound familiar Internet? If so, I’d be willing to wager you’ve owned a cat or two in your day.
I’ll leave you with a few pictures of the cats where they belong:

Hey Internet! I realized I haven’t given you an update on Winston and Ellie May since we got them!
I know. Its horrible. YOU NEED YOUR KITTEN PICTURES. But… finals… That has been my excuse for everything for two months.
So. Kittens. I love them so much. And more important THEY LOVE EACH OTHER SO MUCH. They are best friends. They could care less about me and Adorabeezle. They have each other. I mean:
They are spoiled rotten, obvi, and have their own cat tree. They love it, but have also managed to destroy it a little – there are no longer mice toys attached to it.
For a long time, anytime anyone asked how the kittens were I would say “They are good. Just, you know, destroying everything we love.” And I stand by that statement. EXHIBIT A:
They are growing. They are basically butterballs. Both of them are rather rotund, I keep saying it is because they are about to go through growth spurts, but after Binx I MAY just have a penchant for raising really fat cats, only time will tell.
Mostly, we just really love them. I am obsessed with them and miss them terribly when I’m gone. Every two days I look at them and wonder how they have gotten so bug and then I cry…like actual tears… and that does not happen. I am a robot…
So the cats are good. And if you want more updates, you should follow me on Instagram because around 85% of my posts are cat related.
Hey Internet! So things have been so crazy around these parts (I had my first test of grad school yesterday – and I crushed it), and I totally forgot that I HAVEN’T INTRODUCED YOU TO ELLIE MAY PENNYWHISTLE!!!!
That’s right! Winston has a sister!! And they totally love each other.
I mean how could I blog with these babies around? (Note the untouched computer in the background of that photo).
As you can see, she can be a sleepy baby (and we totally are teaching her right with the Oreos), but this girl has some ENERGY in her – its just easier to take her picture when she isn’t moving at the speed of ninja. She loves playing with her brother and her toys.
She is also a snuggle bug with a penchant for trying to suckle blankets.
So we have our hands full over here, but we are LOVING it.
Happy Hump Day Internet!!
