I am a busy working mother of two who has too many pets and foster pets so I thought I would start a blog about the insanity of my life.

Pretty Little Snakes

I recently shared a link on Facebook that was about snakes in hats. Many of my friends commented about how much they would like to see my snakes in hats. I’m crafty, but not crazy enough to make my snakes wear them.

In honor of the recent Royal Wedding I opted to photoshop fascinators on them instead.

Lola (above) is looking lovely in her pink and blue fascinator while watching the wedding.

Eek the snake (below) is looking dashing wearing his flower tiara while enjoying the festivities as well.

Boo’s New Sweater

This winter has been extremely cold so far and my son wants Boo to stay outside with him more than Boo would like.

This made me decide that my next crochet project should be a new sweater for Boo.

It’s made from scrap wool and I invented the pattern but I’m happy with the way it turned out. Boo seems happy with it too.

If anyone is interested in the pattern, let me know. I’d be happy to share.

Trading Spaces

It was snake cage cleaning day so Pumpkin Snake was out of the cage and sitting on the couch watching TV with my daughter G. That is normally a spot for cats to sit.

I finished cleaning the cage but Pumpkin wasn’t ready to go home yet so she stayed with G while I continued on with my day.

A short time later G called for help saying she couldn’t get Pumpkin back in the cage. This is why.

I guess it seemed like a good spot for a cat to sit.

The Stud

Little Vape-Cat is nearly five months old and I’m planning to bring him to the vet for the big snip (aka neuter) when he is six months old.  

A local breeder of siamese cats has asked for his stud services before he is done but that leaves me with a tough decision. 

There are too many cats in the world already.   I’m continuously trying to find homes for homeless cats.  

I know the importance of spaying and neutering pets. 

But, the money that I’m being offered would pay for his Neuter plus some extra to cover extra food and litter.

There are people already asking for the kittens so I know that they would go to good homes.   

So, my moral dilemma is to decide if I should assist in bringing more kittens into the world.
