Zoo Boo Date with Baunilha


Dear Diary,

My Birthday Date with Baunilha, the lovely kitteh from Portugal, went well enough that she agreed to accompany me on another date. 

I'm thrilled she wants to see me again, and feel I can outdo the last date, even though Mom confiscated her Ameowican Express cawd after she got the bill revealing the price of Baunilha's birthday presents.

Without a credit cawd, I couldn't take my date to an all you can eat place, like I'd hoped to. Our last date went pretty good when we stopped shopping and got to eat stuff. So I made a list of things to do with Baunilha that didn't require a credit cawd.

  1. A slam poetry reading...
  2. Amateur comedy show...
  3. Local Zumba class...
  4. Karaoke...
  5. McDonald's refuse bin...
  6. My parents house...
  7. A blood donation drive...
  8. Pick Mushrooms...
  9. Friday Night Box Pawty

I showed my list to my pals Peanut aka PretzelKitteh and Peanut aka ImABoatCat, and they both strongly recommended I rethink my list. I asked for ideas and this is what they came up with:

The Great Pumpkin Interview

Hi evfurryone, this is me, Dori. *wavy paws* I hope yoo are all enjoying a beautiful autumn, and not overindulging in pumpkin spice everything.

Today I am joined by my littergator furend, Pwetzel Kitteh. Due to the wurld we live in where evfurrybuddy sues over stoopid stuff like not enough strawberry in a Pop Tart, Pwetzel (his real name is Peanut, but I'm his favorite client so I get to call him Pwetzel) has agreed to accompany me during my intermew with The Great Punkin. Just in case he gets overly sensitive and decides to sue me for my Bweaking Nooz questions.

Birthday Date with Baunilha


 Dear Diary,

It all started when my furend Baunilha said she didn't have a special birthday celebration:

I knew Baunilha from Instagram. She's part of the @CacauBaunilhaSul family. They live in Portugal.  Their names translate into English as Cocoa, Vanilla and South.

The Great Romance

 Hi evfurryone, it's me Dori, back from a bweak forced upon me by my momanager who says the summer hoomiditty has melted her bwain cells, and she lost her energy to do anything more than binge watch Yellowstone. Beth is her favorite character. 

Anyway! Let me tell yoo what's been happening at my house:

Mixing It Up with Country Fairs and Dental Scans


Hello Furends and their Pawents. This is Kim, hip-checking Dori and Rabbit, and the rest of the Wonderpurr Gang aside for a little me time on my own damn blog. I've noticed most of us pet pawrents rarely step in front of the camera, so to speak, but when you're going through a semi-burn out like I've been this past summer... um... year... it's time to mix things up.

I am not a fan of summertime humidity, but here in Flory-Da, as Dori refers to our new home state, it feels like humidity is a way of life. I tend to move slowly throughout my day, like I'm wading through an invisible wall of damp heat. My joints have notified me that unless things change, they will ramp up the inflammation, and I will cease to enjoy physical activity... like walking without pain.

On Sunday Ray informed me there was a chill in the air, it being October. I checked my weather app and sure enough, it was 70 degrees. He said we had to get out of the house and drive 90 minutes north. Sounded like a good idea to me. North sounds definitely chillier. When we stopped driving, we had arrived in Callahan, a small town just south of the Georgia border. There we joined the crowd filing into the Northeast Florida Fairgrounds.

Ray loves a good country fair. So do I, but mostly for the barnyard animals. There is nothing like the aroma of carnival popcorn mixing with cow pucky and kiddie barf. It's something everyone should experience at least once in their life.

Our favorite fair above everything continues to be the Minnesota State Fair. We went years ago to meet up with an author friend of mine, and her husband. We had tickets to see Garrison Keillor who was closing the fair on it's last day. You wouldn't have known it was the last day, because the fairgrounds were spic and span clean, the exhibits were pristine, and the food was fabulous. We even went on a couple of rides, which still amazes me since I'm not a fan of rides. If you ever have the chance to visit Minnesota's State Fair, definitely put it on your Bucket List.

While in Callahan, I made a short video of our walk around the grounds. Mostly barn animals taking a nap, but this isn't Minnesota.

Also, this past week I returned to North Flagler Dental Associates to be fitted for sleep retainers after spending this past summer wearing ClearCorrect braces. This was my third foray into the wacky world of braces, as my teeth are fans of Fleetwood Mac and like to go their own way. But this time I'm pretty sure they've been convinced to go my way.

The sleep retainers, however, did not fit properly. So Dr. Smith told his assistant Brittany - sorry I hope I spelled your name right - to use a dental scan machine they had just purchased. It's made by Dentsply Sirona. You're probably wondering why I would even mention this, considering this is (mostly) a cat blog. Well, I'm a fan of tech stuff. And this machine caught my interest.

After running a wand over the front, back, inside and outside of my teeth, Brittany showed me the 3D scan on her screen.

This was the first time she had used the machine, as it had arrived the week before, and only one other staff member had had time to read the manual. That sounds like me. Play with the new toy first, then read the manual. Love it.

Anyway, Brittany caught on pretty fast, and had me scanned for a sleep retainer that will arrive much faster to the office than the method of taking a gummy mold. 

So, these are a couple of the results from my scan:

Now I'm going to bet that no one else has published 3D scans of their teeth on their cat blog, so I'm going to claim myself a trendsetter. *takes a bow.*

Okay, I'm done hogging my blog. Please return tomorrow for Tuesdays with Dori. She has some Bweaking Nooz to report regarding our resident Romeo and Juliet, Candy and KC.

Then he got old and retired. But Mom never stopped being a Boss. Boss of us all, including Dadders. At my house I'm second in line to be Boss, mostly cuz I have no filter, or OFF switch.

Remembering Sadie

Hi everyone, this is Herman!!! coming out of retirement to pay tribute to my bestie, Sadie, the sisfur of my other bestie, Phi. 

When I first joined the Anipals, Phi was one of the very first to welcome me. We clicked as besties pretty fast, despite her being a doggo and me being a kitteh. That’s what I loved about being an Anipal. Species didn’t matter. Heart did. And boy, those Anipals had a lot of heart. I made so many many many furends over the years, but Phi and me, we just completed each other. 

Me and Phi were so close, she even went on my honeymoon with Belle. Belle was not thrilled, but she knew Phi was my bestie, so it worked.
