Update on the MomFOD

And, last but not lease, we have the MomFOD update.


Like a Monkey on my back.

It’s me. Alana. You may notice it’s a little harder to be consistent these days on the blog. It mostly comes down to time. I’m working a full-time job now while doing some creative work on a part-time and hobby basis. The CATastrophes Web Series is currently on hiatus. One of our actors moved to Los Angeles and so it’s been sitting, hanging out. But that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy reruns!

Other than that, I’m living in a house I renovated and have built a great cat sun room for the little ones to enjoy!

I’ve gone through a saga of having barn cats at the house, which turned out not at all the way I’d hoped or expected.

I’ve still been fostering when able, answering mail from the blog/web series, and doing what I can when I can.

I also took up trapeze!

And I’m STILL trying to teach Pinkle to ring that damned bell.

That damned bell.

Life is different, that’s for sure. I miss Crepes, but she’s well cared for and I still get to see pictures of her and visit once in awhile. Pets and a breakup aren’t easy, but it’s easier if you make the plan before the possibility comes up, and that’s what happened in my case.

I have lots of posts planned, but I’ve been struggling with two dead laptop batteries, two bad orders for said laptop batteries, and time. But I promise, I’m still learning about pets, working with animals, and trying my hardest.

More posts soon!






More Trapeze!

Still more trapeze!





PS I am sending  heart felt hugs to all my friends in the path of Hurricane Irma. I’m thinking about all of you and your fur babies. I know you’ll all do your best to keep everyone safe.

It’s Doodle!

Psst. You guys!  It’s me, Doodle. Crepes wasn’t around and so I wanted to let you all know that I want to write, too! I’m ready for it!

My name is Dixie, but my friends call me Doodle. I’m honest, I’m loyal to my readers, and I really love my mom! I hate strangers, though. They make me so mad.

This is me:


and This is me:

So clean!

Anyway, what would you like me to write about?  I’m ready to bring you the news from a doggie perspective!  The world is our oyster! I love the world, except when people come up the stairs knocking at my door. Oh I HATE knocking!






P.S. My friend Pinkle is running for Speedy cat. Please vote for her once per day. It’s super, duper easy! One click, that’s it! I’ll give you a virtual lick. A lick per click! Hurray!


Pinkle for Speedycat

Please Look At Oregano Jones (It’s Just Louie)

Dear Readers,

Today, I’d like you to meet Oregano Jones. (His name is Louie. You’ve seen him before, except he’s gotten a lot fluffier and a lot more full of himself.)

Do you remember this cat?

There he was in 2014.

Note the hairess tail, the black nose, the skinny frame. He was one of those kittens that MomFOD forgot to tell me she adopted. She claims he was a “try before you buy” and also a “buy one/get another one for the same price” because he came glued to Pinkle. Anyway, this is what he looks like now:




Well, MomFOD has just informed me that is not, in fact, Louie. How odd. It looks so much like I perceive his personality. Anyway, I’ve been told to share this photo instead:

Actually Louie.

I don’t see a difference, really. They’re both furry, they both bug me, and they both have a big ass.  Anyway, here’s what he has to say about himself:


Crepes: Hello, Louie.

Louie: Oregano Jones.

Crepes: I’m sorry?

Louie: I go by Oregano Jones now.

Crepes: Umm… ok…why?

Louie: It suits me. I’m handsome, I’m adventuresome, I’m really- Woah!

Crepes: And he fell off the chair.

Louie: No fear! I have righted myself!

Crepes: Nothing could make you right. Tell me about this alter ego.

Louie:  Oregano Jones is who I’m known as in the industry.

Crepes: The pet fur industry?

Louie: In the movies! Have you NOT seen my films?

Crepes: Oh right. Those.

Louie: Anyway, this is where I got the name. And it stuck. So I’ll be using it going forward.

Crepes: Sigh. Your tail is in the pate.

Louie: That’s Biggie Fluff.

Crepes: Your tail?

Louie: Yeah. He’s got his own persona. Cuz he’s so magnificent.

Crepes: I – I just – Is there anything else you want to add about yourself?

Louie: I am fast! I am strong! I am- oh no!

Crepes: You’ve somehow managed to fall onto the floor from the floor. Well done, Louie.

Louie: Oregano Jones!

Crepes: Whatever.

Louie: Hey, can I read this before you post it? I want to make sure you make me look cool.


Louie: Crepes? CREPES??



And that’s Louie Oregano Jones.  He is fearless, he smells a little weird (mostly his breath), and he really thinks he’s great. What do you think?

His tail, known as “Biggie Fluff.”
