Meowy Christmas!

Traci: “Aaaw! Samuel is all decorated and posing for Christmas! How cute!”


Mike: “Actually, it looks like he got into the decorations and the tree sap, and now he’s stuck to the wall.”


Traci: “Oh geez, not again.”


Happy Holidays from the Silva Gang!

Along Came a Spider (a Really Short Story)

My husband thinks that I’m talented and could totally write children’s books.

Dysfunctional ones, of course.

Hey, it’s a start.


Once upon a time,

There was a little house in the country.


One day, Fluffy the spider dropped in to say hello.

Samuel the cat came out to welcome Fluffy.

Fluffy and Samuel quickly got acquainted.


Samuel wondered why Fluffy was such a quiet and lethargic fellow.



Samuel determined that Fluffy must have been exhausted from his long trip and fallen asleep. He obviously needed some time to rest and settle in. Samuel would come back later to play with Fluffy.


Goodnight Fluffy.



The Bloody End.

Not Your Average Cat

Our kitty is not the common, typical house cat. Nope. Our kitty is a genius and super unique. He is also obedient and can be trained, just like our dogs. It’s amazing. A miracle, really.

“Samuel, get off the table.”

“Samuel, don’t touch the plants.”

“Samuel, don’t scratch the furniture.”

“Samuel, don’t bite your sister.”

We love our cat. He is such a good boy.
