No, I Can’t Put My Toys Away

It’s not like I don’t try, but they keep coming back out to play with me.

So I just figure that’s where they’d rather be.

Can’t fight that kind of reasoning, Maria S.

The whole kitten caboodle

Caboodle Ranch is a 30 acre non-profit cat sanctuary in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.

The Ranch was unintentionally founded in 2003 when contractor Craig Grant agreed to take care of his son’s cat—he later found out she was pregnant with kittens.

Unable to bear giving up the kittens, Craig bought a new parcel of land, and cleared an outdoor space where the cats could roam, away from loose dogs and BB guns.

Craig purchased five more parcels of land, grew the sanctuary, and had 22 cats by Spring 2004.

Craig accepts wounded strays, cats who were formerly cage-bound, and cats that have been “kicked around by heartless people.”

In the middle of 100 acres of wildlife, the cats roam free through the nature trails, climb to tree forts, and hide in the underground dens Craig has built.

All the kittehs have been spayed or neutered, all shots are kept up to date and have regular visits to the vet.

Much more info on the story of Caboodle Ranch, photos, videos, planning a visit  are here.

And as you can imagine, Caboodle Ranch is accepting donations.

We Have a Stuffing Emergency!

Eek! How did that happen?

I know she’s a Toy Pomeranian, but this is ridiculous.

According to Sender-Inner Molly M., pup Sushi is not actually coming apart at the seams. Phew!

Deep Thoughts

“If a kid asks where rain comes from, I think a cute thing to tell him is “God is crying.”

“And if he asks why God is crying, another cute thing to tell him is “Probably because of something you did.”.

Yin Yang Dogma

The Yin: “I pooped in your Mother-in-Law’s slippers”.

The Yang: “But I only pooped in one of them!” [eye closes]

“I Kissed a Cat and I Liked It”

Except for the milk mustache, that part was gross.

You have excellent taste, Alexander G.
