Traumatized Cats And Hair Confessions

Ohhhh.... today has been an interesting day.

I woke up and came downstairs, started my usual morning ritual.  Coffee pot on, take the dog outside, feed the dog, water the dog, feed the fish, check email.  After about 20 minutes I realize I haven't seen Jinx yet.  Hmm....... where could he be?  I grab his treat can and give it a shake.  No Jinx.  Check upstairs in his favorite hiding hole.  No Jinx.  Panic sets in.  Queue crazy cat mom moment.  Even typing about it makes me stressed out a bit.  

I couldn't find my cat anywhere.  ANYWHERE.  I looked all over my house.  I was opening cabinets and looking in the fridge (and the freezer, and the dryer, AND the washer).  I checked all the bedrooms about 89 times and looked under the couches about 200.  Still no Jinx.  I'm hysterical.  I call my mother and I call the husband... all the while running around my house and looking everywhere.  I check outside and I peek in the garage a few times.

Crying.  Crying.  Crying.

I'm in the kitchen and in from the laundry room walks a puffed up cat covered in cob webs. JINXY MINXY WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?!!!!  Somehow that little devil sneaked in to the garage during the night.  I have no idea how long he was in there but he was definitely shook up from the experience.  Poor little guy.  :P  He's all better now though, even attacked me for some bread while I was eating a sandwich for lunch.  He loves bread and ignores lunch meat.  Weirdo.

I also have a confession to make in this post.  I took my dreads out!!  I know, I only put them in like a week ago but I swear I have a good reason.  They were long as crap.  And crazy heavy.  I plan to shorten them a bit and put them back in very soon.  And add some orange in the mix.  :) :)

Tonight I'm going to be making an awesome Italian-style soup with chicken and oregano and pasta.  I promise I will share it with you in the near future.  Mike and I are enjoying some time together before he goes to Kentucky for some work training next week.  Not looking forward to that at all!

Hope you guys are having a great week!

P.S. -- I just realized this post is kind of long..... woops!  :P


  1. Glad you found your kitty, and your hair looks great too. Hope you continue to have a good week!

  2. Aw, poor little kitty. It is kinda cute when they get pine cone tails.

  3. Oh my goodness! I'm glad Jinx is okay...I'd be frazzled too if I was in the garage for an extended amount of time! I would've been frantic too, glad everything turned out okay!
    PS - I thought your hair looked rather non-dreaded! I bet it was extremely heavy! Can't wait to see them with the orange!
