War On The Pet Human

IT'S WAR!!!!!!

I saw what you did, my Pet Human. I saw the photos you posted. What's wrong with it? I have a teddy bear, so what's wrong with having a teddy dog? It's just a stuffed animal.

So now, it's WAR! Just you wait. I will booby trap this entire house while you are away in Morocco (and you still don't have my permission to abandon me!) There will be dead lizards, insects, and birds everywhere.....in your shoes, your closets......I will make sure to bug the whole house.....and I don't mean wiretapped!


I'm NOT happy!

Skittles, The Huntress


p.s. Skittles will be signing off now for three weeks for Christmas vacation. Frankly I think she looks like she needs a vacation!

Pay Back Monday

WARNING!!! THE PHOTOS BELOW ARE XXXX RATED. DO NOT SCROLL ANY FURTHER UNLESS YOU ARE OLD ENOUGH TO VIEW.


From The Pet Human:

Yeah! Finally I have access to my own computer. Skittles has taken a Sunday Snooze, and I sneaked in to get my revenge!!!

I have been waiting for this opportunity ever since my beloved feline put the dead lizard in my shoe.

Apparently Skittles has a secret life, and just last night I discovered her in the living room. Hehehehehe! She will not be happy that I posted these photos.


WARNING!!!!!!!!!! DO NOT SCROLL ANY FURTHER IF YOU ARE UNDER AGE!!!

XXXX RATED PHOTOS BELOW.......WARNING!





I think Skittles has taken the Not of my Species Special Friend a little to the extreme! What do you think?

Formerly Feral Friday

Being "Formerly Feral" I sometimes take advantage of my status to enjoy the good things in life.................such as................

sleeping on the clean white laundry








or on the forbidden velvet chair.

Thanksgiving Thursday Thirteen

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!!!


I arrived at Grandma's house today, and I'm already out in the yard.






I think I'll eat a little grass

















And of course I must visit the neighbor's yard. Well, hey if they are going to have this open kind of fence, then that's an open invitation to me to come on over!






And here I am with Grandma. She is so good to me. She made up my bed in the garage with a nice soft blanket.



And she remembered to put out my favorite plaid blanket in the family room.










So what am I thankful for this year?

1. A pet human who loves me very much

2. A wonderful boyfriend, SlyCat

3. Lots of internet friends

4. My pet human got a full time job, so I will never run out of Friskies. (plus, she looks a lot happier)

5. A great big yard with lots of trees to climb, and bushes to hide under

6. I didn't have to be evacuated during the fire

7. Sherry, Jelena, Katie and Petra (friends of my pet human)

8. Lizards

9. Birds

10. Point Loma Parrots

11. I live in an area where I can go outside, and I have lots of freedom

12. I'm especially thankful that Auntie April was able to rescue me from the warehouse, so I could go live with my pet human

13. All of you who have visited my blog. I feel very lucky to have met you all!

Luv,

Skittles, The Huntress

Over The River..........

......And Through The Woods To Grandmother's House We Go.......................

Woooooooohooooooooooo! I'm going to Grandma's house for Thanksgiving. My pet human just informed me we are leaving this morning and spending the night!

I love Grandma's house! All my favorite photos are from when I was visiting her. She has lots of green grass and big pine trees to climb. AND SHE HAS BUNNIES IN HER YARD!

This is me inspecting the underside of her table.

And here I am playing Puma in the Jungle!


Did I mention she has bunnies in her yard?

I will be posting a very special Thanksgiving Thursday Thirteen tomorrow.

Wildfire Recovery Update

Dear Friends,

Instead of Yoga Tuesday, I am publishing another Wildfire Recovery Update. Yoga may resume in a week or two.

Life for most of us in San Diego has returned to semi-normal. Yet, the impact of the fires is far reaching. My pet human started her new job just after the fires, and discovered one of her new co-workers lost her home in the fire. This last Saturday, the humans at her workplace held a bake sale to raise funds for a Thanksgiving Day basket for her.

The latest news on the causes of the fires is this: the California Department of Fire (yes, we have so many wildfires here, we have a state agency to deal with them) said officially, downed power lines were the cause of two of the worst fires, the Witch Creek Fire, and the Harris Fire.

So now attorneys will duke it out and try to separate San Diego Gas and Electric from a large sum of money in their deep pockets. Yet really, we will all pay ultimately in higher rates.

Here are some photos from the aftermath:

Residents in Escondido returned home to a destroyed mobile home park
This couple in Rancho Bernardo saved their own lives by staying submerged in their own swimming pool for over three hours until the fire had passed over them.
Horses can suffer from stress too. These horses were evacuated twice during the fires. The handlers had difficulties loading them into trailers.
What does a burned avocado look like?
The avocado agricultural business is very big in San Diego. Many farmers have lost their entire groves. This fire was different from others. Many grove owners in the past would turn on the irrigation system if a fire went through. This kept the fires low and to the ground. The crops and trees would be saved. This fire just obliterated the groves as seen below.
Qualcomm Stadium acted beautifully as an evacuation site. For the first San Diego Chargers game played there after the fires, tribute was payed to the victims.
And this Catholic church burned down, yet the following Sunday, Mass was held and Blessings and Communion shared.
Many thanks to all of you who have expressed an interest in being kept up to date on the recovery. The outpouring of love has been phenomenal!

Luv,

Skittles, The Huntress

Monday Meme


My special friend, SlyCat, tagged me for a meme. Tell 7 random/weird facts about myself. OK, here goes:


1. I don't jump on kitchen counters

2. I come when my pet human calls

3. I love SlyCat!

4. I don't like any human food, except banana bread. I've been offered turkey, chicken, ham, salmon, steak.....yuck!

5. I currently suffer from writer's block, and I haven't been able to produce any poetry lately.

6. I have my own horse blanket

7. I have more than 1 pet human. There are two other pet humans who live here in my house, Julie and Bob. Sometimes I share their bed with them! Spread the love!

Luv,
Skittles, The Huntress


p.s. I tag anyone who wants to play!

Wildfire Recovery Update

Dear Friends,

Many of you have sent me emails asking for an update on the recovery efforts after the wildfires. So here is the latest news.

I am very proud of the humans here in San Diego. We have many fund raising drives going on, and an outpouring of donations. Target gave $1,000,000 to recovery efforts, as did the San Diego Foundation.

Here's a link to a news article about an anonymous business man in Orange County who donated $1,000,000 to victims of the Santiago fire.

Here's a photo of what one family found remaining after their home burned down.

Our wild four legged friends are hurting. This poor raccoon is severely burned. I feel so bad for him!!!!!
This bobcat had his fur burned. What will he have to eat this winter?

Here is a link to a news article about the Fallbrook Animal Sanctuary. In an effort to evacuate the 103 animals, they spent all their reserves and they are now broke.

This picture shows what Ramona residents faced when they returned home. Their water supply was tainted, and they were instructed to either boil their water or drink only bottled water.
Thank you signs are springing up all over the county!
Here is a link to an article about a thank you project gone wrong. A teacher had her pupils write thank you letters to firefighters, but unfortunately two of the students had lost their home! Oooops! I'm sure the teacher didn't mean for that to happen.
And finally here is a link to the latest buzz. Two lawsuits have been filed against San Diego Gas and Electric. The lawsuits contend that SDG&E failed to clear brush away from it's power lines. The attorneys say a downed power line and sparks caused the brush to catch fire.

My pet human says lawsuits were to be expected.

Thank you to all who sent emails asking for an update. I will keep everyone informed as more news hits the press.

Luv,
Skittles, The Huntress

Mancat Monday

Uh, oh! Sam the Marmalade Cat showed up on my patio today. I hissed and screamed at him! My tail was all fluffed up. But he wouldn't go away. So I whapped him. He just sauntered off like he owns me or something.

Where is SlyCat when I need him?????

YOGA CLASS

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE! WELCOME TO YOGA CLASS!

Wow! This road trip has been fun and exciting! I have lots of new friends, and now my resume says I am "well travelled."

We haven't done this particular routine since April, so let's try it again. The routine pairs agility with balance, as we will be practicing on the steep steps up to the house.

OK.....deep breath......................HEY, MONTY Q...GET AWAY FROM THE SNACK TABLE!



Oh, I am so relaxed! That was very refreshing.

Now the good stuff.....Ham for Miles, of course. And today we are indulging in DESSERTS!!!!!!!!!! And Schramsburg Champagne from Napa Valley.

The chocolate torte is from Cocolat in San Francisco. Anyone else remember Cocolat? Anybody else (other than my pet human) remember when wine tasting in Napa was free?
