Dog Portraits

It’s hard to get a good photo of a shiny black dog, but I always thought my problem was I needed a good camera. When I got a Cannon Rebel T3i for my birthday (thanks dad!), my favorite subject became Lars.

As it turns out, the camera wasn’t exactly the problem.

Cat Assisted Living

Assisted Living! For Cats!

Within a few weeks of moving to our new house, we realized Loki needed his own space. Ever since his ear infection, he’s been OLD. He drinks a lot and likes to sleep all day and meow all night until he falls asleep again.

Who knew old cats become college fraternity boys?

And like most drinkers, Loki needed some assisted living to find happiness again. We moved two litter boxes and a cat tree behind our last baby gate so our other furry baby, Lars, can’t come for visits but all Loki’s cat friends can.

We also bought Loki his own waterfall water dish, which sounds so nice with its soothing, bubbling noises between drinks from the fountain and pool. Except it also likes to overflow especially when I think, Oh it just needs more water, but really it’s time for another flood.

We now have tupperware levees.

Thanks to Scott marrying a crazy cat lady, Loki only has to leave his room for dinner just like a grandma.
