If you have internet access and eyes, you’ve probably seen the amazing #TheoandBeau photographs.  What you may not know is that they were taken by my friend Jessica Shyba– under my guidance and supervision.  And exaggeration. I really encourage you to click over to look at the beautiful pictures of Jessica’s son, Beau, napping with their puppy, Theo. It will make you want to get a baby and a puppy. Or at least a camera.

Sadly, I have none of those things.

But I do have a cat, some CSA-vegetables and an iPhone 4S camera, so I’m doing the best I can, people.

Seasonal!  And I wouldn’t be surprised if Theo and Beau suddenly start napping with squash.


With the holiday season around the corner, have you gotten all your loved ones a copy of Wanted Cat? It’s a heartwarming book about one family’s search for the perfect cat. I wrote it, Peajaye illustrated it and my daughter took the photographs. What’s not to like? Make sure to get a copy for all your disliked ones too, but give it to them ironically.

Oh, from the title I thought Nicki now had a feline companion. Squash is the perfect name for an orange tiger. I may steal/borrow it for future use! And yes, Theo and Beau are amazing. I hope she continues sharing their growth and partnership through the years.

You’re right, that is the perfect name! Now I’m worried that you will grab the name before I get to use it. Need orange cat, STAT.

The look on your cat’s face cracks me up. And yes, Jessica and her sweet boys are pure magic.

Yes, Jessica and her boys are pure magic, BUT WHAT ABOUT MY NICKI AND THE SQUASH? What are they, chopped liver?

There is only one name for an orange cat and that is Willie Nelson. Especially if it has long hair and enjoys catnip a little too much. Nicki is a beauty.

Magic, pure feline magic.

I’m waiting for one with Nikki and Squash in a hoodie.

Patiently waiting for your cat and CSA vegetables to go viral.
