Random Fridays....

We have a couple of quick requests: (yes - some of you saw this on Monday - mom hit "publish" without changing the schedule she needs help)

1. Does anyone know of a free app for mom's smart phone (which after a couple of weeks is still occasionally proving smarter than mom) that is good for cat vet info? We thought we read  about one somewhere but can't seem to remember?

2. Do you have cool cat furniture you would like to share pictures of with us? We may have mentioned before that our grandpa works with wood. He made mom a coffee table (though for the weight, she says it should be called a coffin table - MOL). Anyhow, someone had said that she should suggest to him to make cat furniture. Mom said yeah right, that wouldn't happen. Anyhow, grandpa saw cat furniture at the pet expo and waved mom over - "this is marked $250 and the material costs about $25 - are you kidding?" mom said nope - that is why we don't have much furniture. And all of a sudden you could see the wheels turning in his head.  :)  So, if you have pictures you don't mind sharing, leave a link in the comments or email us at randomfelines at hotmail dot com.  He won't get started for a while cause they are trying to sell the house (though if it takes much longer grandma is gonna let him work in the garage anyhow cause he is drivin' her nuts) but he is making mental notes.

Mom got a text from the rescue lady about spay/neuter appointments on Wednesday. Mom knew Cheeto and Milano were big enough. Chex was pretty close. Miss Mona said to bring Frito too. Mom said no way was he big enough, but she wasn't going to argue. The kitts ended up spending a little time with mom at work (no, she didn't let them out) before going and then mom picked up everyone (it is a mobile clinic). Well, wouldn't you know....that little Frito guy didn't make weight. <>  Of course, he is the only one with an application so mom has to call the people and say "really sorry, hope you don't mind waiting a couple of weeks". And this being the case, Chex, Cheeto and Milano will be heading to Petco on Saturday. We suspect will have news of some sort on Monday.....
let's see (left to right)

Dorito (buff), Milano (gray w/white), Samoa (black) and Triscuit (white w/ gray)



Samoa (he has goopy eyes, but they are looking better now)

Mom will be driving around like a crazy woman on Saturday and we all plan to be lazy on Sunday!! Have a great weekend.


  1. guys chek out

    ipet alert
    pet's 1.99 but they give abck to ASPCA

  2. We saw a kitty just in the last couple of days on one of the blogs we follow who was napping on a custom-made kitty bed. We'll try to remember which blog and let you know. Purrs and hugs from the kitties at The Cat on My Head, Lily Olivia, Mauricio Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette

  3. Ohhh. Your Grandpa sounds like OUR Grandpa! We're looking forward to pirtures of some cool Grandpa-custom-made cat furniture!

  4. We really really like the modular cat wall! How pawsome if your Grandpa built that for all of you!

  5. Anytime I mention getting cat stuff the male person gives me the stink eye so I don't have any and I've stopped looking

  6. Good job if Grandpa can build some cat furniture. Hope he can get it done.
    HOpe the kittens find a most wonderful home. I want Triscuit so bad. She looks a lot like my BB that went to the bridge a year ago. But too long of a trip. Take care and don't run too hard tomorrow.

  7. We think you should visit Katnip Lounge at because their dad makes all their cool furniture. Maybe he's trade email with your GDad?

  8. For some cool improvised cat furniture - check out Katnip Lounge - they have a good pic on the header.

  9. The kitties are so sweet and are growing fast!

    We're glad you stopped by our blog today!

  10. I found a lot of cat trees, litter box covers and such on Don't forget that kitties really like shelves, too :)

  11. Update from our previous comment: Mom found the site again with the very cool kitty bed. It is The post was on 4/21. It was entitled, "Easy Like Sunday - Three Views." Hope you can find it. This bed is pretty fancy. Good luck finding the app. Can't help you there.

  12. As regards cat furniture, I have a custom-made cat-tree that can be seen on my post about the first sign of spring. I think I had it made seven feet tall, with staggered platforms at one foot intervals. All the cats can use it, and it's good for fat ones and old ones. The base needs to be large but it's very sturdy and gives plenty of space for sitting or lying and looking about.

  13. Love the pictures! the babies are absolutely adorable!

    I try not to pay full price for cat furniture because I've had to burn too many big kitty condos (ringworm outbreak, etc.).

    I usually get mine at Costco each December. The big condos are usually less than $70 and are better than the ones at the pet stores that sell for twice the price.


We love to hear from you.....
