Wine & Cheese – 24th Serving

Welcome to Wine & Cheese, my weekly, Wednesday whine session.

Every week on Wednesday I devote a blog to whining. Despite being a really happy, positive person, I do have things that annoy me at times.

I never let anything grate on my nerves for long but thought it would be fun to vent them periodically in my blogs.

I also feel that good things, the cheese in life, should be acknowledged as well.

I’m even going to throw in a bit of dessert, a piece of virtual chocolate, something that made me laugh or smile just a bit more than normal.

Sit back and join me now for the 24th serving of some wine and cheese!

I am whining about cats this week.  As in the 4 legged, long tailed, obnoxious fur ball kind of cats.

THEY ARE THIEVES!  They like to steel stuff from us all and hide it, or play with it, or even eat it!  Ditzy helped her cute self to my blue tooth last week.  I had it with my purse, Kindle and phone on my bed before I left for work.  She made off with the blue tooth and my mom later found it  in the living room.  I had seen her playing with it but thought it was a cat toy.  The piece that goes over the ear? Well half is missing having been bitten off, and there are teeth marks all over the remainder.

THEY CANNOT TELL  TIME! Or maybe they can, and it is just the weekend thing that throws them off?  I like to sleep in on Saturday morning, it is my only day to enjoy this luxury.  Granted, my alarm goes off at 5am during the week, so 7-7:30am IS extra sleep, but my idea of sleeping in is say 9 or 10!  Pixel begins her morning assault at no later than 6:30am.  She gets up on the dresser or desk and begins moving objects around.  If I do not react she knocks them off to the floor.  I get up, go put out fresh food and go back to bed.  Soon, she comes back and brings her posse, Ditzy, and they start the tag teaming.  If the moving of objects doesn’t work, they wrestle….on the bed.  If I do finally give in and get up, they move on.  They don’t want anything other than to have someone else up and about.

MY CAT NEEDS A SHRINK! We already know that Ditzy is ‘special’. To say she is mentally challenged is being very nice.  She is fortunate that she is so adorable, it allows us to look past her lack of brain matter.  My cat, Pixel, needs a kitty cat psychiatrist.  She used to use the litter box like she invented the thing and fine tuned it.  But now? She won’t allow her paws to touch the litter to cover her deposits.  Instead she circus performs around the edge of the litter box, scraping the plastic liner, as if that is going to be effective.  Sooner or later she gives up and leaves, and Noel goes in and in complete disgust, while glaring at Pixel, covers the down load that was left behind.  Here, a visual aid, maybe some other cat owner can help us? We’ve tried changing litter, nothing seems to work.


Not all things cat related are bad, some are quite good!

We found a new litter, World’s Best Cat Litter and, while I am not one to do a product endorsement, I have too.  THIS STUFF ROCKS!  No annoying perfumes, just NO odor.  The stuff is amazing.  Of course, you have to change the litter on a regular basis, but this stuff is really good.  For the go-green folks, you will love this, it is made from corn! Yep whole kernel corn!  It is amazing stuff.  If you go to the website you can get a coupon to get a bag free (by rebate).  We in the Diva Den highly recommend and endorse this product!

Cats are endlessly entertaining.  We often spend Saturday mornings sitting in the living room watching them stalk, pounce and fight with each other or cat toys.  They are such a riot to observe!  And we’ve all learned from our 3 felines, take time to play! Silly, crazy, wacky, FUN play.  I read recently that cats NEED to have play time to avoid getting mental? Well so do we humans.  We can learn a lot from our cats!

Cats provide the greatest means of recycling register receipts.  Assuming there are no coupons on the back that can be used, of course.  We call them crinkles, a ball made of a long register receipt.  This too will provide endless entertainment to us and the cats, who will play soccer with the crinkle.  Now we know that there are crinkle  balls that can be purchased, we have those, and the cats prefer the home made ones.  One crinkle and 3 cats = lots of laughs.  It should be noted that if the crinkle ball by chance lands in the water bowl, it is no longer a good play toy and should be disposed of! This will disappoint the cats.


There is no snooze button on a cat who wants breakfast.

  1. re: kitty litter

    The only thing that strikes me is that your cat changed her litter box behavior AND you changed kitty litter brands. Is it possible that she doesn’t like the new litter, and that’s why she doesn’t want to scratch around in it? Just a thought.
