    Remember that farmhouse stool I told you I was going to paint and sell at The Chapel Market? I think Kit-Cat has other plans in mind. Kevin and I spent the week working on our “presto change-o” virtual room makeover … Continue reading

    Kitchen Window Sign

    Snapped this yesterday… I guess he thinks our new sign is for him since it’s hanging on one of his favorite windows. Birds, and lizards, and bugs- mmmm!

    Black and Tan and Tuxedo

    We’re headed to St. Louis today. That’s about the halfway point to where we’re going in Minnesota. I’m hoping our pets don’t give our house-sitters too much trouble while we’re gone. Something tells me everything will be just fine though. … Continue reading

    Pretty On My Porch

    Thanks to a cold-that-won’t-quit, I’m still kickin’ it on the couch. It has been sort of fun just (new) neighborhood watching out the window though. Yesterday, this pretty little bird kept me entertained, just as the sun was starting to … Continue reading

    Kit-Cat the Crazy

    The other day I caught Kit-Cat doing something…weird. It involved Kevin’s bathroom sink… …and a full bladder… …but absolutely no flushing when he was done. #gross I caught him in the act a couple more times since that first time, … Continue reading


    iPhone Pics & Pinterest Prose

    iPhone pics + a quote that struck a chord = I used to think I was the strangest person pet in the world. But then, I thought, there are so many people pets in the world… …there must be one just like … Continue reading


    Kit-Cat the Adventurer

    3 things I love about Kit-Cat: 1. His sense of adventure. Unfortunately I’m forced to interrupt the adventure from time to time, but I usually can’t resist snapping a photo of him first. 2. His paws. I could rub them … Continue reading

    Ruff and Tumble

    Most of the time, Max and Kit-Cat just lounge around the house… But lately, they’ve started to meet up for body slamming sessions between naps… (click the play button to watch the completely quiet/action-packed video below) I guess this means … Continue reading



    Hi. I’m Maximus Palmer, and my Mom thought it would be nice if I blogged about my new little brother, Kit-Cat, today. Yep. Apparently the kid is stickin’ around for good. I’m not really sure why they wanted me to … Continue reading


    Kit-Cat Update

    Kit-Cat did so good at his vet appointment the other day! He’s such a calm little boy. Me, on the other hand, well…I saw stars and had to sit down. Apparently I get faint at all doctor’s appointments…not just my … Continue reading


    Tuxedo Cat

    Remember the little kitty I blogged about a couple weeks ago? Well, turns out it’s a boy, and I was so excited to be able to pick him up from the animal clinic the other day… (Click the play button … Continue reading


    Stray Kitten

    I’m a sucker for a stray. Dogs, cats, turtles- you name it- if I’m in the car and I see one, I gotta bust a u-ey, and at least try to rescue it. And because of the comments left on … Continue reading



    Our friend, Jason, brought over his new “baby” the other day and I couldn’t resist snapping some pics of her when she started to get sleepy. Meet Tootsie… She’s a “dorkie” (dachshund/yorkie) and our pooch, Max, is officially in love. … Continue reading
