The Wonderful World of Disney Cat Characters

Posted by on Jun 16 2009 | cat video, Dax, Pictures of cats


Of all the Disney Characters, the cartoon cat or the Disney Cat has always been a part of Disney’s animated films. When I think about it, I don’t know of any Walt Disney animated movie that is without a cat in it at some point. Either as a main character, an extra or a supporting character. There is a wonderful video of all the Disney Cat characters at the end of the post. Be sure to scroll down or click through to see it.

How to have fun with your Cat Pictures

Posted by on Mar 20 2009 | Dax, Pictures of cats

If you’re like me, you have a lot of cat pictures that you’ve taken over the years. Some images I’ve managed to get into a frame for others to enjoy. Other cat pictures I’ve put into a photo album and the rest are sitting on my hard drive or on a CD/DVD somewhere.

Besides just ordering prints and filling up my photo albums I’ve always wished there were some other fun things I could do with all the images I have of my cats. Well there are.

Jade doesn’t feel like playing.

Posted by on May 09 2008 | Dax, Jade

Dax and Jade went to the vets the other day. Dax was fine, but Jade had a bladder infection. We weren’t surprised to hear that since she’s been urinating outside of her litter box.

We got some medicine for Jade, so we hope once she’s better she’ll go to the bathroom in her litter box again. If it’s a behavioral thing for Jade then it’ll be a bit more work to get her to use her litter box again.

If anyone has gone through something similar with their cat and has any advice to share we could certainly use some help in this area. We’ve searched around the net and got some tips.

Dax wants to play with Jade and she just isn’t interested as you can see in the photos. Poor Jade. Get better soon.

C\'mon Jade let\'s play.

Dax and Jasmine as Sun-pals

Posted by on Apr 30 2008 | Dax, Jasmine

We’ve been very fortunate with a long stretch of sunny weather for April and the cats have taken full advantage of it. Jasmine and Dax shared some time enjoying the Sun, nuzzling and hanging out together. It was like watching ‘Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Fin cats’ with no worries, no place to be and enjoying the day!

Nice sunny day, huh Jasmine?

Dax ventures out into the great unknown.

Posted by on Apr 24 2008 | Dax

After being cooped up for the past eight months Dax ventured out into the great outdoors. I left the back door open one afternoon to see what would happen. It was a beautiful sunny summer-like day and I decided to enjoy our great weather while having some lunch.

It didn’t take long. A few minutes later, Dax was at the back door. He seemed to be amazed at how much more space there is outdoors. He cautiously stepped out onto the back deck taking it a few inches at a time. He eventually made it al the way to the edge of the deck. I think he’s an outdoor-cat-wanna-be.

We’ll have to leave the back door open more often this season and see how accustomed the cats get to being outside. I’m sure they’ll love it.

Each cat comes out at their own pace until they feel safe outside of their protective home. Jasmine, needless to say, wastes no time and is out and down the deck steps rolling around on the patio and sniffing around trying to find a way out of the yard. Another wanna-be to say the least. She’s been out a few times already. She has no fear when it comes to being outside.

Dax will have to take some lessons from Jasmine on getting out more this year. Here’s Dax’s little adventure on the back deck.

It’s so nice when Cats get along

Posted by on Apr 08 2008 | Dax, Jade, Pictures of cats

Jade is usually hissing and hiding away most of the time. You’d think she was an anti-social little thing, but every once in a while she proves us wrong. Just the other day Jade nuzzled up to Dax as if they were soul mates.

It was a heart-warming moment that brought a tear to my eye. Jade: what a sweetheart of a Cat.
The best part was we actually got some pictures of the whole thing. This is the Jade we all know and love.

Don’t look now but your cats are watching you.

Posted by on Apr 01 2008 | Dax, Jasmine

We had been having a run of beautiful Sunny days with unseasonably warm temperatures. I decided to take advantage of this warm spell and do some woodworking and a few other things in the backyard.

After a couple of hours I looked back at the house and noticed I had some company. I was being watched by two of our cats. It was Dax and Jasmine. They were very curious about why I was outside and what I was doing.

Normally I would have let them out to explore and sniff around for a while, but the yard was a bit of a mess and the noise from my power tools would probably scare them back inside.

So I let my little furry audience of two had to stay behind the safety of our back door and continue to be entertained by my back-yard activities.

Here they are watching the show.

A secret between two cats

Posted by on Mar 16 2008 | Dax, Jasmine

Dax shared what seemed to be a very hi-key secret with Jasmine the other day. We tried to make it out but we had two things going against us. We weren’t close enough to hear and we didn’t speak ‘cat’. Figures eh?

Anyway, luckily for us Jade, our informant, speaks ‘cat’ fluently. Jade didn’t tell us what Dax said word for word but it was something about who really runs the show around here and the best way to get extra food when you need it.

It didn’t surprise us much as we pretty much knew all that stuff already. I guess Jasmine just needed a reaffirmation of sorts and Dax decided he was the cat for the job.

We’ve since let the cats continue with their little charade of dominance and independence. But we’ve tightened up on leaving any food laying about (especially Tuna) and maintained weekly updates from our informant.

Let’s see who is the boss next time Dinner is late. They’ll be putty in our hands, at least until their fed.

Dax’s silly cat moment.

Posted by on Mar 07 2008 | Dax, Funny Cats

This is Dax. A fun loving cat who is playful, good with kids, easy going, talkative and, from time to time, can be kind of, well… a little silly to say the least.

Take the other day for instance. Dax was hanging out on the couch as you can see in the first picture. He got up and started doing some regular cat stuff. Scratch the scratch post, walk around aimlessly, meow at nothing, lie down, get up, lie down again.

Then the silly stuff started. Dax wanted to wash his paws. All he had to do was sit down and lick his paws like any other cat would. Not Dax. That wasn’t silly enough. There had to be a sillier way to do it.

So Dax decided he would clean while lying on his side with his paw above his head. Then swing his paw down and try to lick them that way. Brilliantly silly stuff!

I could go on but I think now would be a good time to look at some pictures so you can see exactly how silly Dax’s silly cat moment was.

The Amazing Cat Couch Sleep-a-rama!

Posted by on Mar 05 2008 | Dax, Jade, Jasmine, Sleeping Cats, Spooky

Our cats sleep all over the house at night. They each have their favorite spot to crash at bedtime. Sometimes it’s the couch, other times it’s a chair, or the stairs, a scratch post, well, you get the idea.

Suffice to say, all four of our cats rarely sleep together in the same spot. It just doesn’t happen very often.

Last night was one of those rare moments when the entire Band picked the same spot to sleep! Of course the spot they choose was our big green couch.

I was lucky enough to witness this rare phenomenon and took a few pictures for all to see. I think we’ll see another Lunar Eclipse before this happens again. 😉

When two Cats cross paths you just never know what is going to happen.

Posted by on Feb 27 2008 | Cute Cats, Dax, Jasmine

The two cats in question are none other than Dax and Jasmine. Both of these cats are fine on their own but when they get together they usually have something to argue about. It’s hard to know what will happen when they get together.

This time I was caught right in the middle of another impending conflict. Not a good spot to be in with these unpredictable two. (I’m actually glad Jade wasn’t a part of this.) Anyway, there I was as Jasmine approached from the family room and Dax was on his way up the stairs. They were headed right for each other!

I was poised and ready with my camera and was tempted to say something like “Look out Dax” or “Jasmine, incoming at 9 o’clock!” But I didn’t say a word, stood my ground and watched to see what would happen.

I was surprised at what came next.
