Hooter and the Hooterettes

June 16, 2009

Hooter was Elvis’s mother.  She was a black and white Angora type.  Her first litter consisted of Bunny, Terry, Sammie and Ben.  The second was Elvis, Mitzi, Spot and Rocky.  Hooter had calcium deficiency with the second litter and we had to bottle feed them.  I kept Elvis and Spot and mother took Mitzi and Rocky.  My daughter came over at lunch time to feed them.  For a few weeks, it was pretty hectic, but they all made it.  We called them Hooter and the Hooterettes.  Now they are all gone. I love the thought of them all performing together in Kitty Graceland.  Thanks, Janice, for putting this picture in my head.

I called my son to tell him about Elvis and said I was going to look for another.  He immediately asked if Iwas coming.  He wanted to come, too.  So, I’m going to Reisterstown tomorrow for a few days.  There are some shelters where I intend to look.  I’ve always had good luck with them.

Thank you.

Thank you very much.
Good-bye, old friend.
We miss you.

Elvis is Making Me Crazy

May 13, 2009

He decided to go on a field trip sometime in the afternoon and didn’t come back until around 6AM.  We had looked for him, but had no luck.  Since he’s deaf, calling does no good.   He needs one of those electronic devises they put on criminals and nursing home patients that wander.  Do they come in cat size?

Elvis Scared Me to Death

April 7, 2009

He was gone ALL DAY and it was RAINING!  It must have been in someones garage or shed.  I worry about that old cat.   It didn’t do any good to call him.  He’s deaf.  He  was only a little wet when he showed up.  I was concentrating on the taxes when he came to the back door and started hollering.  We dried him off and got him some food, but he seemed more thirsty than hungry.  Zippo was really glad to see him.


It Was That Kind of Day

A Nice Day

February 7, 2009

p1010744I actually got to sit outside and do some knitting.  I finished my black socks last night so I started on a bag for my daughter.  The bag is from Beth and the yarn is from Knit Picks.  It is called Telemark, 100% Peruvian wool.  It is tightly spun which is good for a bag, but I don’t think I would want to make a sweater with it.













Here’s Elvis checking on the neighbors.

I Didn’t Mean to Scare You

December 7, 2008

Elvis is fine.  As a matter of fact, he is quite perky.  He went to the vet yesterday to get a steroid shot.  He even went outside today to go potty.


Here he is helping himself to some dog food.  He heard it’s good for his teeth.


You got a problem with that?

Elvis Was Coughing Again

December 5, 2008

The vet said to bring him in and a technician would give him a shot.  I wound up staying longer than I had planned.  It seemed they were down two people and the girl at the front desk didn’t know shit from shinola.   Elvis was a good boy and  it only cost ten dollars so I can’t complain.


Elvis Playing

November 23, 2008

I got out the gallon of apple cider this afternoon.  When I twisted the lid, the ring flipped off onto the floor in front of Elvis.  He has always had a thing for rings. 


Not bad for a 18 year old cat.
