Time for April's reviews!

First up, Fancy Feast.
Granted, this wasn't as much a here's-something-new-for-us-to-try as some of the choice in the past.  Still, Erin, my oldest cat, has been a little finicky lately where canned food is concerned.  Madeleine, with diabetes, has to have special food, and Riley is content with her dry food.  I figured, if Erin didn't like these, at least there wouldn't be the waste involved with larger cans.

She devoured the Turkey and Giblets flavor.  Cleaned her plate!  She's neither here nor there on the Chicken and the Beef, but I certainly know what Fancy Feast flavor to get her from now on.

Second, because Riley has stopped using the main litter boxes, I asked for 
Honestly, I didn't notice that it was "Hawaiian Aloha" scented.

Long story short, the litter made no difference.  Maddie and Erin were fine trying it out, but Riley isn't sold.  I think she may use the new box when I'm sleeping, though.  We'll keep trying to solve the riddle that is that one.

Again, I am able to request products from each month to test in-home.  They are sent to me free, and I am to deliver honest reviews of our experiences.  No money changes hands at all.


  1. I wanted the toy this month and it was GONE as soon as I asked. So we skipped this month. BUT my cats love love love FancyFeast chicken turkey and fish varieties. I think I've told you they dont handle beef well. My sister the Vet is coming tomorrow! From Minnesota. She has never met Fezzik! She's excited < so am I!

  2. Our kitties eat dry kibble for the majority of their food, but they share 1 can of Fancy Feast every night as a treat. Zoe loves it all, she will eat almost anything. She's the least picky cat I've ever lived with. Will goes through phases where he turns his nose up at the flaked varieties for a week, then all of a sudden decides he likes those but won't eat the pate kind. The flavors don't seem to make much of a difference, it's the texture that pisses him off for some unknown cat-brain reason.

Cold Shoulders

There were 589 stitches!  They were the beginning of this: It's the Superior Waves Shawl from Willow Yarns.  This is one of the kits Kathy was asking about the other day.
Speaking of which, here are this week's questions: Sure sign of Springs: bugs.  Has anything bitten you yet? No, though the carpenter bees are back flying around the bench on the front porch. Do you knit for practice?  I don't mean for gauge;  for a stitch pattern? If I have, I don't remember. Have you tried One Touch Latte for your coffee? Not a coffee drinker. Have you seen or tried Persi laundry detergent? I'd never heard of it 'til now. When was the last time you wore one of your own handknits? Over the weekend --- some socks made from Noro.
If the waves shawl weren't keeping me busy enough, I'm also working on 28's Cousin 53.  I'm making it out of yarn that will turn purple when I wear it in the sun. What will they think of next?


Yesterday would have been my mother's 88th birthday.  I don't say that looking for sympathy --- it's just that the arithmetic surprised me.  Then I realized that next year, my husband would have been 70.  That is hard to get my mind around.
The shades-of-blue feather and fan shawl (the 589-stitcher) had to go into the "Maybe Another Day" file.  Somewhere along the way, I lost the pattern stitch and couldn't fix it without frogging way, way back.  It's irritated me to no end, but there really wasn't anything else to do.
Something occurred to me the other day.  If this is already being done, I didn't know, so I'm not trying to steal anyone's thunder.  You know those cake/cocoa/cookie mixes in a jar? Why couldn't that be done with yarn "cakes"?  


I have been awake since 10 AM yesterday.  I have no idea why.  It resulted in lots, lots of knitting getting done overnight.  It has also resulted in my being alternately punchy and goofy.  What a day to have a therapy appointment.  At least I had the good sense to wear pretty boots:
There is all kinds of nervous conversation here about some possible snowflakes falling Friday or Saturday.  I have to go to the grocery store tomorrow anyway;  as long as there are a couple of gallons of milk in stock, things will be good here.
