Presenting... the Amazing Oskini!

Shown here performing the Indian Rope Trick, the Amazing Oskini is known world-wide for his incredible feats of prestidigitation and derring-do! Available for birthday parties, bar mitzvahs and Rotary Club meetings...

A Guide to All Our Cats (and a Rabbit!)

Because you can't tell the players without a program, here's a brief rundown of the animals residing at our house. First, we've got the Officially-Ours Cats:


Nicki's 13 years old, and has been with my wife for about 11 years. He's shy and antsy and would rather be an only cat.


Oski came from a litter of cats that turned up in the warehouse of the company my wife works for. He was the runt of the litter, which is hard to believe now!


We got Moon from a local rescue group when we decided Oski needed a playmate more his own age (they're both about three now). She likes to be petted, but not picked up!


She just turned up on our doorstep! We think she's about four months now.

And we can't forget Rex Rabbit!

Rex came from the House Rabbit Society in Richmond, California, a rescue group that deals solely with rabbits. Rex was featured in an article in their magazine once!

Then there's the Cats That Came With the House:

Annie and Sadie

We originally thought they were sisters, but it turns out they're mother and daughter! We're not exactly sure which is which, though. They used to be quite skinny, beleive it or not!


She's still the most stand-offish. She comes in to eat, but then runs right back out again!

There's also our sometimes-visitor Blackie

When he's around, he comes by twice a day to eat, and likes it if you sit outside and pet him. Not sure whose cat he really is, but he disappears for a month or so, and then comes back.

There's a couple of others that hang around outside, including one we think may be Fiona's mother. But these are the ones you'll see the most!

This has been making the rounds, but even if you've already seen it, it's still pretty funny... via the Onion.

Look Out, Rich Little!

Moon channels Dick Cheney!

Feed Me!

Here's a brief article on holistic pet food. They don't mention it, but as you can see above (and below), Fiona prefers Wellness, one of the brands that actually uses human-grade meat. As you might imagine, all our cats love it (and we sometimes use it for chicken salad! ;) ...)
