Bloody Friday

 Hai evfurryone, time for another Tuesdays with Dori. It's me, Dori., *wavy paws* 

So, last week I mentioned I had something rather exciting to meow about. But after what my momma did to her paw, what I'd planned to show you pales in comparison. So let me give you my report on the sordid details of what will live down in history at my house as BLOODY FRIDAY, and then I'll show yoo what I was hinting about last week.

Our hearts are broken at Wonderpurr Life as we learned of Timmy Tomcat's passing. 

Timmy was his daddy's Heart Kitty, something we all aspire to being to our special hoomons in our lifetime. It's not a job you can apply for. It just happens, like it did for my mom and Herman. We all loved Timmy. And we all mourn his passing.

But cats like Timmy don't just fade into a warm memory for their family. No, they stay with all of those who have been touched, and Timmy touched a lot of us. So he will be celebrated and remembered for a very long time to come, by so many who never even met him. That's the power of what Timmy's daddy did. He reached beyond the blogosphere and touched us all with Timmy's wonderpurrness.

Rest in Peace, sweet Timmy. You left behind huge paws to fill.

Come Home Sawyer

 We at Wonderpurr Life have Janet and Tom and the Kitties Blue in our prayers that Sawyer returns from his unplanned adventure. This is a nightmare we have also had, so our hearts go out to the stress and worry they are experiencing.

Rabbit Has a Nightmare

Dear Diary,

I recently had the worst nightmare ever. The reason why I'm even bothering to write about this is because... usually... I'm the nightmare someone else is writing about in their diary.

It all began after I'd enjoyed a particularly nice afternoon. The sun was shining, the birds were chirping... Opie hit a new decibel screaming cuz I'd dared to look at him. Seriously, the Ginger Wuss doesn't need anything more from me than a side glance to get his tiny tail all knotted with stress... which I actually take as a compliment. His hissy fit came on the heels of Dori complaining to Mom that she didn't appreciate me putting the bitey on her neck without first asking.

Operation Grass Pool

Happy Tuesday, evfurryone! Well, Summertime 2021 is underway. We were at our old home this time last year, getting ready to move to Flory-Da. Now we are here, with a Wonderpurr Catio complete with two huge water bowls. Here, let me demonstrate for yoo:

This past week I overheard Momma telling Daddy that we needed something grassy to enjoy. I haven't touched paws on grass since before I was rescued at 3 months old. The first grass arrived as a  test plot to see if anybuddy would use it as a litter box. *shyly raises paw* Hey! I had to go!

Writer Inpurr-rupted

Before Ray retired I knew I had from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. to get my blogging and writing done before he came home, but now it's a free for all where at any given moment he will pop in to my office to see if I'm hungry because he is (hint hint), or to let me know that one of the cats barfed cuz he heard it but isn't exactly sure where the barf is. He might need help doing something on his laptop because while Ray is fantastic at fixing stuff, he is clueless when it comes to anything techy. Or maybe he wants me to drop everything and film the snake-eating bird in our front yard. I know you're dying to see that video, so I will post it here with a slight warning: It's rated PG for ... you guessed it. Pretty Gross.

Celebrating Caffeine Candy

Five years ago on June 15th, Candy joined the Wonderpurr Gang. She arrived as a skinny year-old calico, brought to me by my beloved Noah, a beautiful, semi-feral yard panther who later brought us Elly before he passed from hidden illnesses.

Caffeine Candy got her nickname when she took to licking the Keurig nozzle after I made morning coffee. Thankfully she kicked the habit, and I no longer need to disinfect before I have my brew.

The Safely Home Project

I know it's not Thankful Thursday, but I'm thankful anyway to have been rescued from an uncertain life at the age of 3 months. I don't remember much about living in the woods with my meowmy Annie, my daddy Nikolas, my brofurs Kopea and Keepurr, and my twin sisfur Patsy, but when Annie led us all to that house with the light in the window and the noms on the porch, we didn't know it then, but our lives were about to take a major change for the better. We all got rescued, and adopted, and for me purrsonally, I am very thankful that the hoomons who lived in that house liked me enough to want to keep me, along with my daddy, Nik.

Fatal Attraction to Plastic Bags


It all started when Rabbit was about a year old. I saw him chewing on an icy bottle of Ozarka. Since he's a pedigreed Turkish Van I was surprised he didn't ask for Evian or Fuji. I figured he was teething and the cold bottle soothed his gums. The licking and chewing went on over the next two years. I didn't think much about it.

The Primal Habits of Humans

Dear Diary: 

You wouldn't think cats would be bothered by Mondays, but the truth is, we notice the primal habits of our hoomons change with the start of the week. Fur instance, Monday is trash day. The truck arrives at the Crack of Dawn, and unless Dadders rolls outta bed before that dawn cracks, we all get to enjoy our garbage for another three days. And let me reassure you, our household makes more garbage than ANY other house on our block.
