Fall Friends


We have lots and lots of cats.

And we’ve got them in every shape, size, pattern and color. Especially Fall colors…which is rather odd. But then again, our cats tend to be rather odd.

My cat is the Mother Ship. She’s a medium long-hair tortoiseshell – snowy white on her bottom half and large gorgeous patches of orange and black on top. We have a big ginger male the boys appropriately named Cheese Puff, a black and orange stripey female, two black kittens, and an adorable black and white kitten who looks like Eddie Munster of the classic Munster’s tv sitcom, plus an odd assortment of other random cats…which all seem to get named after the boy’s favorite foods.

My cat, Queen Sushi.
Eddie (Munster). Thank you, Layne Ihde, for this awesome name! Layne is the cat-dad of a little black cat name Pippin who is the star of his new series of children’s books titled Pippin, No Licken! And Pippin, No Drippin!

And they LIKE mice, but not in the same way this cat likes mice. Consequently, we don’t (currently) have a mouse problem.

The chickens. Our chickens run the gamut of the fall color palette, too. I’m not quite sure how that happened, but our cats and chickens match.

That presents us with a technical difficulty: Marla. Marla doesn’t match. We either need a new dog, or we need to paint her orange.


I don’t think that would bother the cats one little bit.

Oooohhhhh, Nooooo, You Don’t!!!

The half-bath room is right in line with the back door. It has one sink and a toilet.
Alex has to walk through there with Marla to Kevin’s office where the back door is to take Marla out for her daily potty breaks.
(Our entire Flock of Flurrkins likes to park right on the concrete stoop, immediately in front of the back door, but that’s another highly entertaining story for another time.)
I was just in that bathroom right in the middle of cleaning the toilet with some good-old-fashioned dish soap and bleach (my grandma’s tried-and-true recipe for cleaning everything), giving it a good scrubbing with all of the accompanying soapy bubbles going everywhere, when Alex and Marla noisily came back in the house through the back door and were in the office directly behind me ready to squeeze through the little bathroom and on into the rest of the house.
Marla has a rather unfortunate bad habit…when she returns from her Great Adventure Outdoors, she’s quite thirsty. That white porcelain toilet bowl is right at her height and looks like the Perfect Refreshing Font of Thirst-Quenching Goodness for a hot dog.
And Marla has frequently, noisily and messily availed herself of its permanent and open availability before we can catch her.
(When certain short humans around here use it, they never remember to put the lid down. I’m not going to comment on whether they remember to flush or not.)
I looked back over my shoulder, and Marla was bee-lining it for the watery bowl with a very interested look on her face.
“Oh, no, you don’t, Marla!” I told her, planting myself firmly in her path with my soapy toilet brush held aloft like a scepter to reinforce the command in my Presence and tone (because I am the Queen of the Throne, dontcha know).
Just in time, Alex realized what was about to happen and said she’d take Marla into the rest of the house through the laundry room.
Pulling Marla behind her, while Marla determinedly pulled against her in the opposite direction toward the toilet, Alex redirected a very reluctant dog into the house via another, less disgusting route.
I made a mental note to myself to remember to flush the toilet really well and put the lid down, just in case.
