Bachelor of the Week: Charlie!

Oh! I have a DOOZY for your today!

Do you like to snuggle? Do you like gigantic man cats who are almost too big to hold? What about gray cats? How about one-eyed cats? YOU DO?!?! Fantastic, because that’s who we have today!



World, meet Charlie. This gigantic hunk of mancat was living in a junkyard. One day, a kind man tried to help him and do you know what Charlie did? He jumped into his car! You see, Charlie loves cars. It was the only thing that was really keeping him going during his junkyard days – perusing all the shiny, rusty, smooshed up cars that came around. One day, he hopes to build a porsche from scratch. True story. He even has the hood ornament all ready to go, except he won’t show anyone who doesn’t adopt him.

Besides his love for muscle cars, Charlie loves to cuddle and ride on shoulders. Also, he has FIV and diabetes. He probably picked up the FIV on the street, most likely when someone insulted one of his rides. The diabetes just kind of happened. Also, he’s missing an eye, but he only needs one to target you with. Target for what, you ask! Well, snuggles, of course!

If you think you have space in your home for a bear hugger with a constant sassy wink, contact Tabby’s Place today! Charlie sure would be grateful. He might even let you ride in his porsche one day. If you can’t fit this big boy into your house, consider leaving a donation for his care. He’ll use part of his for his needs and I’m sure Tabby’s Place will let him keep part for his porsche fund.

The Laziest Christmas Tree Ever and A Giveaway Winner

Today, I have a photo for you.

Louie and the tree. This is how lazy the FODs are this year.

This is what they’ve done for a Christmas tree this year. I blame Louie. He takes up a lot of time and would probably climb a big tree. Also, he’s been here an awfully long time for a foster cat. I don’t get it….

Tuesday Haikusday: Fur and a Film

Today, I want to talk about something we have and people don’t. That’s right: fur.  Eh hem…

Look at it. Look at my fur. It's festive for the holidays.

Look at it. Look at my fur. It’s festive for the holidays.

Soft, silky, short, sleek

Striped, gray, black, brown, mottled red

So many choices.


I am always warm

You pay for coats and mittens

It sucks to be you.


You want to touch it

I’m going to charge you for that

Me: entrepreneur.


There it is! What do you think of fur? How many colors are in your house?

Speaking of charging for pets, check out this new CATastrophes film featuring Peabody and the seemingly ever-present Louie.

ASPCA’s DIY Gift Ideas and Gift Basket Giveaway

You guys!

My buds at the ASPCA called me up and they were like “Crepes. We have some ideas for gifts that people can make themselves. Do you want to share them?” and I was like “I dunno, do you want to sweeten the pot for my readers a bit?” and they were like “We’ll throw in this awesome gift basket as a giveaway to one lucky winner” and I was like “SOLD!”

So, here are the ASPCA’s ideas for how to make some DIY gifts for your furry dudes at home, both dogs and cats. Click the link and then click the photos on the bottom right to open the instructions for each. You’ll note my comments after each.

·         For dogs, braid together two strips of an old t-shirt for a fun chew toy – photo with directions here. (Crepes’ note: Do not use your FODs’ favorite shirt. This will not go over well, unless you want the dog to get blamed, in which case, use your FODs’ favorite shirt.)

·         For cats, use a t-shirt and a few easy-to-find household items to create this cozy cat tent – photo with directions here. (Crepes’ Note: unless you use a waterproof shirt, this tent will not keep you safe from the elements. Fair warning.)

Epic fail on the shirt tent, MomFOD. Thanks for playing.

·         Since cats love tuna, this quick and easy treat will keep them occupied during holiday dinner – photo with directions here. (Crepes’ Note: I would leave out the flour and just make a tuna omelet for the grain-free types.)

·         For a tasty reward, make pumpkin pie cookies (perfect for cats and dogs) with this simple recipe – photo with directions here(Crepes’ Note: This one looks pretty tasty. Make sure you use plain filling, not pie filling for this one – nutmeg is toxic to pets.)
