The Last Post as Co9T!

This is our last post as Cat of Nine Tales!

Our blogging continues with a slightly different theme and can now be found at Marshwood Cottage beginning Monday, August 4, 2014.

We're not sure how long this blog domain will stay up, but we are archiving the whole thing today and it will be imported into Marshwood Cottage. 

We pray it all goes well!

I turned off comments for this post so...

Thanks for stopping by and see you all at The Cottage!

Old Dog Cooper

When you're an old dog, 
sometimes it's just too much work 
to climb all the way into the bed.

Thanks for stopping by! 
Our last Cat of Nine Tales post is in TWO DAYS!

Wizard's Favorite Bed

This is Wizard's favorite bed.

We call it the princess bed. 

Oddly, it has never been thrown-up on or peed on, which cannot be said for any other blanket or bed we have (we do have 7 cats and 4 dogs!).

Thanks for stopping by!

We plan to archive Cat of Nine Tales and import the whole history into Marshwood Cottage, so please be aware that you may get weird looking or excessive posts over that weekend (sorry in advance!).

Monday Mancat Stretch!

Owen in his favorite bed stretching. 

He spends a good amount of time in "the zone" kneading (aka making biscuits) the bed before he settles down to nap.

This Was Hard to Believe!

So I had to take several pictures.

Shortly after taking this Nick started grooming Yukon. It did not end well. Hissing was involved, so I intervened.

Throwback Thursday with Owen

Owen resting in the cubby of my old desk. 

He was just 2 months old in this picture, before his eyes changed color to orange. You can recognize him by the lightening stripe along his nose.

Thanks for stopping by!

P.S. Do you know the significance of owning a red stapler?

Penny's Cabana

Penny spends most of her time in her cabana.  You can't blame her for wanting a little privacy being the only girl surrounded by 6 boys all the time.

She woke up, caught me taking pictures and wants to show off her pristine white belly!

Triad Tuesday

Snafu, Wizard and Yukon

Wizard runs from Snafu (when he's awake). 
When he sees Snafu coming toward him, he trots quickly out of his path and usually jumps up high for safety.

Snafu's big paws pack a major wallop. His favorite move is a left-right-left, 1-2-3 to the face and ears, with a possible bite if the victim's not fast enough. 

Yukon is the only cat who'll stare him down, but Snafu is not above sneak attacks and has walloped Yukon from behind a couple of times.

Such is the life and times of felines.

Thanks for stopping by.


P.S. Sorry if anyone got this post twice. We had technical difficulties I've edited it in between posts.

Mancat Talks

Yukon likes to talk. His is not a meow, but more like a squawk. He seems to squeak, force out an "eep" and an occasional "Ek-kek-kow" - which is close to meow.

For anyone who didn't catch last Thursday's post, our Cat of Nine Tales blog is moving and changing it's name to Marshwood Cottage at the end of July! Please pay a visit to our new (but still under construction) blog by clicking HERE and subscribe to Marshwood Cottage. Here is my Thursday post with more details.  Thank you and...

Our Blog is Moving at the End of July!

Hello all followers of Cat of Nine Tales!

First, we thank you all so very much for coming here and following our blog! Whether you comment or just view our posts, we're grateful to share a part of our lives with you. We enjoy being back blogging and plan to continue.


Due to some confusing changes at Google and Blogger that I can't figure out or work around, we are losing our domain name in August.


Our blog is moving at the end of July!

Since I have learned an ancient truth that where there is crisis there is opportunity, we are also using this to change our blog name to Marshwood Cottage

If you've followed our blog for a while, you know that since we lost Moseley and BJ, we only have seven cats (not nine) and I've been wanting to include more dog posts. So, once we throw in the gardens and birdlife, we've got a slightly different feel to the whole blog.

The Marshwood Cottage blog will remain at least 70% cats!

Today I'm asking you to please CLICK HERE to pop over to the new Marshwood Cottage blog (which is under construction) and subscribe, join, follow or however it is you find yourself here. All posts will shift over to the new blog on an as of yet undetermined date at the end of this month. We'll keep you posted!  

Thank you all and thanks for stopping by! 


Welcome to our Cottage! We are still under construction.

Hello All!

You're in the right place if you're coming from Cat of Nine Tales (our old blog)!

Welcome and thank you for checking us out. 

Please subscribe to Marshwood Cottage or follow us as we plan to begin posting by the end of July 2014 on Monday, August 4, 2014!  

Thanks for stopping by and please come back on the 4th!
