The disadvantages of living on a tiny place and having to put the litter box in the bathroom.

You kind of have to hold them long enough until they start pretending to cuddle with you. I call it "force cuddling". It sometimes works.*Side note: Will post dates and details of my book signing for CvsH soon. I have 2 going on in the Bay Area (one at Books Inc. in the East Bay and one at Book Passage at the Ferry Building in SF), and another signing in Changing Hands Bookstore in Tempe, AZ.

Dumpling and Puppy have a weird relationship. I think they’re friends, especially since Dumpling likes to follow Puppy around.

I'm not the jealous type--except when it comes to this.My sister stayed with me for a few weeks. All three cats slept on her bed instead of mine during those times. Those were cold, lonely nights.

I have antsy feet, especially in the morning. The cats view my feet under the blanket as their play thing. It is painful. Oh, I’ve been getting DMs and emails on toilet cuddling since I’ve posted that comic. I find it strangely comforting that I am not alone in this.

My puppy and kitty, exactly.Oh, and thanks for the nice words on my previous comic. I've gotten a number of requests for lengthier ones. I spend, on average, about an hour doing my regular comics. The 9-pager took about 6 hours. Maybe less. I'll try to make more like that, time allowing.

We bathe the pets prior to bringing them to the pet hotel or if we have someone babysit them while we leave. That way, they're nice and fresh and not too stinky. But that's not always the case. Anyway, I'm back from our vacation. Next post is on Friday :)xxYasmine

Tip for you: don’t put your hand anywhere near your cat if she’s in crazy modeFor those of you not familiar with that tunnel thing in my comic, it's this:It's one of the few toys my cats like. It even has a bonus fuzzy thing hanging from the inside that cats can bat around. They will roll around in it, chase each other, and sleep in it. Boxes and tunnels, that's what cats like.

I relocated to San Francisco for a design job while Victor and the pets remained in Phoenix. We were apart for about a year prior to them moving with me. This is how we communicated every day. I would lay on the floor, on a 2-inch mattress as I would watch my cats through the computer. Fortunately, computers are cat magnets.

My immediate family and relatives are actually quite pet friendly. We’ve had cats, dogs, fish, bunnies, turtles, hamsters, chickens and ducks. The chickens and ducks were very protective. If they saw someone approach me, they would attack that person’s foot by pecking them. And they’re very smart. And yeah, cats, we’ve had lots and lots.

Go to work. Look at cat pictures on the internet 75% of the time. Eat lunch at desk—while looking at cat pictures. Work a bit. Look at your cats’ photos in your iphone. High five a co-worker in the elevator. Talk about the weather. Go home. My actual job is designing accessories--like purses, jewellery and hats. I work with glitter, ribbons and shiny things almost every single day.

I think he can lay down too, but it didn't work last time I told him to.My cats Money and Wonky Kitten can play catch though. I'll throw Money's fuzzy green pouf and he'll quickly run after it and drop it close to me. He also loves to

I don't know why, but it's not as endearing. I have one of those body leashes for cats (and ferrets and tiny dogs). I tried it on my cat and it just didn't happen. I basically just mopped the linoleum with their fur. I tried it outside, and they practically walked me. I asked Victor, "So if I get a kitty stroller, will you walk them too?" He was hesitant.

When I adopted my newest kitten. This is him. He's the sweetest. He has very wonky hind legs, so when he runs, he runs diagonally. He also can't jump, so he has to claw himself up my bed. He's very healthy though. I just have to put a chair or some other platform for him to step on if he wants to go on top of something.

Not so much their water bowl. Sometimes, yes. But they prefer more fancy means. The faucet, by far, is my creamsicle cat's favourite. She especially loves it if I cup my hand under the trickling water and she drinks from my palms. If I pull away she will meow and paw at me.

Last Holiday month, we drove from San Francisco to Phoenix to see family. This would normally take us about 12 hours. But with pets, it took us about 15+ hours. This included frequent stops for feeding, cleaning, walking and breathing. It gets stuffy quickly, especially inside a compact car. I'd feel sad boarding the pets at a hotel for 2 weeks. That and my cats will end up resenting me if I

This is how it starts :PMuch of my cats have been strays, and the rest are adopted. When I lived in Arizona, we'd pick up cats, and once a dog (Puppy) roaming around in the heat. They all become indoor pets once I adopt them. But I walk them in the yard twice a day.

This is why I can't close my bedroom doors. I either go through this, or this. All my doors have scratch marks, and the carpet underneath is very frayed. The higher, deeper scratches are from the dog, and the smaller, longer and thinner scratches from the cats. They must love me to want to be with me that much.

One day, upon arriving home, I see Puppy chewing on a package I thought I'd placed on the shelf. I exclaimed, "bad dog!" I picked up the wrapper, and upon close inspection, there were tiny nibbles on them--as in cat nibbles. My dog is

Remember Y2K? Classmates were asking me, what are you and your parents doing?! And they were telling us to stock up on rice, beans and water.My parents bought a few cases of water the last minute because I nagged them to. But we didn't need to buy rice.
