horny kitty

I made tuscan white bean soup tonight (hooray immersion blender!) with a couple additions of my own - spinach and tomatoes.  We paired it up with cornbread - yum!

Richele and I's picture from the bridal expo on Saturday did indeed make the business's blog!

Perhaps you're wondering the origins of the blog title tonight... Mosie has been extra vocal and lovey yesterday and today - nonstop chatter, rubbing on our legs, super cuddly (not necessarily paired with purring), rolling around by our feet, constantly wanting to be nearby, lots of meowing... you get the picture.  We had friends over for dinner tonight (also cat owners) who quickly informed us Mosie is definitely in heat.  Our little girl is all grown up!

Here's what wikipedia has to say about cat heat:
Female cats... may have many periods of heat over the course of a year, the season beginning in January or February and ending in late October. Heat periods occur about every two weeks and last about 4 to 7 days.

Good grief!  This makes it sound like Mosie will be a love monster for 85% of the year!

Cat owners, what are your heat experiences/advice?

  1. Oh my word. Heat is the worst. It gets really annoying and then kind of embarrassing when you have guests over and your cat won't leave anything or anyone alone because she needs it bad.

    I finally got to the breaking point with Stella and called the vet to see what the price was going to be. They said first she'd need a check-up, then the actual surgery, and they also practice pain management, so all in all it would run to a little over $300. So then I called the Humane Society and they said they'd do it for $25 and I was hooked.

    Of course, the process wasn't as "nice" as going to the vet. We had to be there at a certain time in the morning to fill out some papers and then drop off the animal in a long line of other ones awaiting the ol' nip-snip, and then come back for them at the end of the day. Needless to say, the Humane Society doesn't practice pain management, but aside from a very shell-shocked kitty the first day, and an extra lazy one the next couple, she was back to her old tricks after a week. But it was a good decision to have her fixed, no doubt. I wish I wouldn't have waited so long.

  2. how did the cornbread (with olive oil) turn out? i agree with your friend about getting her fixed, though i would be somewhat weary about getting it done at the humane society because of the cat we took there that basically caught a disease from them. they aren't always the most "humane" either!
