We’re pleased to announce 2013’s Cat of the Year Award…

The Grammy’s.  The Emmy’s.  The Golden Globes.  Even the Academy Awards.  They all pale in comparison to the Sigman-Koski Awards, which has one highly-coveted CATegory:  that’s, right, CAT OF THE YEAR!  And without further ado, the winner of the 2013 Cat of the Year Award is….

Jesse, who just turned 15 years old this past January 3rd, won paws down for being the best cat in the Sigman-Koski household during 2013.  His primary talents include snuggling on the couch with humans during nap time, purring, inciting the wrath of Oliver (which mostly involves growling), and avoiding food-bowl conflicts.  Congratulations, Jesse!  We love you!

Long or short?

Gonna be a little self-indulgent and perhaps a bit narcissistic here.  But what do you think – long or short?  I just had my hair cut a couple of weeks ago, and now it’s the shortest it has been since the 7th grade.  See?

Bah, screw it.  I was going to post a picture of me with long hair for comparison, but since there’s no going back, there’s no need for it.  Also, I usually just tied my hair back anyway and rarely wore it down. I like the way my hair looks now – it was time for a change!

Arrrr…Iron Mary Flint be my Swash-Bucklin’ Pirate Name!

My pirate name is:
Iron Mary Flint

A pirate’s life isn’t easy; it takes a tough person. That’s okay with you, though, since you a tough person. Like the rock flint, you’re hard and sharp. But, also like flint, you’re easily chipped, and sparky. Arr!
