Adventures in Catsitting

My roomate and I are sitting two cats. I always secretly desired owning a cat so this week I can try it out. The first day they just hid in a dark corner only coming out to eat and do their business whenever we left the house. Luckily today’s visit from their owner drew them out of hiding. When I returned home Kat-Kong came out from under my bed to say "Hi" and later that night "Princess" jumped on my bed and demanded I pet her.

Update 8/29/7: They caught a mouse today! Whoo-hoo!

*Last blog I was going on about a secret life changing thing. Well if you must know, at the end of June I became a Vegetarian. It’s been really life changing and so far I’ve lost around 20 pounds. Unfortunately, when you’re as hefty as I am, 20 pounds is but a drop in the bucket but I feel inspired to keep going


Books: Eat to Live by Joel Fuhrman MD (Thank you Zack!)

Videos: The Meatrix parts 1, 2 and 2 and a half of the funniest but informative flash animation on thios planet! (thanks Debby!)

Vegetarians who inspired me through actions not words
Beta and Landy of Just Landed, Rebsteroc and her family, The Trachtenburg family, Jessica Delfino, Christopher X. Brodeur, Kerry Lea, Chuck Naked and of course Morrissey. There are tons of others who encourage me to press on; Omnivores and Vegetarians alike thank you all!

A special nod to Marcia from “Making the Scene” who initially hipped me to all this first!
