Podcast 01/26/19

ogg format link

In which we learn what a giant sucker Trish's husband is for tiny baby kittens and how they have (rather inadvertently) come to welcome a new furry little tuxedo boy into their lives.  Karen and Trish discuss the joy of new kittens and how much they actually DO sleep.

There is a general catch-up on feline health; Rupert being ill with a dental abscess and Maui is again constipated.  Poop is discussed...

The verboten word "farenheit" is uttered.

The Return of the Cat Scatologists

Podcast 12/28/18

ogg format link

Wherein Karin and Trish take a long windy brief moment away from the hoi polloi lifestyle to explain their whereabouts, and what the heck has been going on during the four month long hiatus!

This edition is especially unorganized zany so hold on for a wild ride...we discuss our health, our sleeping habits, caffeine (or lack thereof), our cats, our cats' health, eating, how we did on our New Year's resolutions for 2018, and some new ones going forward into 2019.


The subject of maths/mathematics reveals that Trish has a Fatal Flaw.

Karin covers the topic Feline Sport Eating quite amusingly.

And, naturally, cat crapping habits are explored.
