What does Jonathan have to say?



Find Your Baxter

Back in 2008, I was not in the best place.  Sure my job was great, but my personal life needed some serious improvement.  One Saturday morning I decided to go to Dane County Humane Society and find a new friend.  I remember walking in and being interviewed by several cats in the meeting room.  Dane County Humane Society has small rooms where cats can meet their potential servant  companion to see if the relationship will work.
 
I met several cats, but I didn’t click with any of them.  Some seemed too demanding while others were too neurotic.  I was about ready to give up when I went into the shelter’s gift shop.  There was a cat “working” in the shop.  The people at the shelter said he was pretty social and let him wander a little more.  We instantly connected and Baxter came home with me.
 
My life was upgraded immediately as I enjoyed having the company and the responsibility.  It was also amazing how Baxter was interested in watching Chicago White Sox and Bears games with me.  He never asked to switch the channel.  He also remarkably has the same taste in music as I do!
 
When my then girlfriend now wife, Lindsay first moved to Madison, she was not very excited about a cat being in the picture.  I told her to give him a week and if she didn’t like him we would discuss the next step. 
 
It only took Baxter a day to win her over.  Now I think she loves the cat more than she loves me.
 
Catapalooza starts today at Dane County Humane Society.  It’s a chance for you to find your new friend.  There’s even reduced adoption fees.  Tonight will be family fun night which includes music, dancing, games, prizes, food and more importantly cats looking for homes.
 
Catapalooza starts today at noon and ends tomorrow at 5pm.  Find your Baxter at Dane County Humane Society.

Jonathan & Miss Kitty -- Been running around like the proverbial chicken minus a head trying to get ready for the trip. I leave for O'Hare in a couple of hours, staying at DoubleTree, leave 10:00 a.m. tomorrow for Ft. Lauderdale, Sunday a.m. - to Bimini! By Sunday afternoon I'll be swimming with the dolphins. I'm absolutely wired, as if you'd need to be told. I hope I don't wind up sleeping with the fishes, but just in case--you guys are the best. Baxter is wonderful!!! Hope you check these comments once in awhile. I'll call when I'm back in Madtown, USA ClaireBear

Kitty's night in a haunted house
Before Friday, my only experience with a haunted house, commercial or otherwise, was at the Recreation Department in Stevens Point when I was a teenager, and as I remember I was FREAKED out. So I was a little nervous when Jonathan and I were asked to...

World's Worst iPod: El DeBarge "Who's Johnny"
A lot of people seemed to have fond memories of this questionable song from 1986. "Who's Johnny" was the first solo hit for the guy named El DeBarge, and it went to number 3 on the charts. Some of you might remember it from the movie "Short...

You might want to see "Once" twice
I had the opportunity to go see "Once" at Overture Hall last night, and I guess the two word summary of my review could be "weirdly awesome." The story isn't too complicated, which is good because I sometimes had a hard time understanding the...

World's Worst iPod: Stonebolt "I Will Still Love You"
It seems Kitty was all alone in the Canadian wilderness with her love for the 1978 hit "I Will Still Love You" by Stonebolt. It only made it up to #29, so it seems a lot of folks didn't have the fond memories of the song that she did. With amazing...

World's Worst iPod: Neil Diamond "Yesterday's Songs"
Even Neil Diamond fans didn't seem to want to throw their support behind this one. "Yesterday's Songs" with its cheesy backup singers may be the most cliche song the guy does! It made it up to #11 on the charts in 1981/82 and was #1 on the...
