This and That's

THIS...
I couldn't find Strawberry Balsamic dressing, tried THIS and found I like it even better. Have you ever used it?
AND...
Faux got her spring cut.  She's reached the stage where she doesn't groom anymore and her fur gets oily and matted. She looks, and acts, like she feels much better.
Once the cold weather hit, she moved inside and wouldn't set her dainty paws out until the weather warmed.  Now we can't get her back in.
THAT'S....
all folks.

  1. Faux's 'do' is gorgeous. And a comfortable cat is a happy cat - as are the people who share their space.
    I have never seen strawberry vinagrette. I may have to explore.

    1. It's like she has come out of hibernation. I worried about her all winter, now she seems like her old self. She must be part bear.
      The label is misleading. It's actually a wine blush vinaigrette that's recommended over strawberries. It really seems to add to the flavor of the salad.

  2. I haven't tried that dressing, but then I am not a dressing fan. Faux looks good, I wish somebody would take me for some spring grooming, my hair looks like a mop! Have a great week, hugs, Valerie

  4. Faux must feel a newly shorn lamb, where suddenly relieved of the weight of its wool, bounces around with gay abandon. Err, she doesn't look great, but that is a human problem, not a cat problem.

    1. More a lumber than a bounce but definitely with gay abandon.
      She got a lion cut. They had to go a little higher around the neck than they normally do because of little mats around her neck. The HH has always thought the lion cuts look weird but I love them.

  5. I don't think I've seen that brand.

    Poor kitty. Long hair just doesn't agree with her anymore.

    1. Let me know what you think if you try it.
      She's loves her cuts. Conversely, we had a himmie that hated getting lion cuts. He'd complain for days. I think he found it an embarrassment:)

  6. I've never seen that brand. We're partial to Newman's Own when it comes to salad dressings. I'm like Faux and not going outside until it gets warmer. More snow on the way mid-week.

    1. I'll have to give Newman's a try.
      Boo...no more snow. Actually the s word is being bandied around here too. I've warned the flowers.

  7. Love the new look and I don't blame Faux one bit for enjoying the lovely weather. I haven't tried that brand, but glad you really enjoy the taste. I tried a Poppyseed Dressing the other day, and was surprised at how wonderful the flavor was. Hope your Monday is amazing! Hugs...RO

  9. When my dog was alive, she loved being indoors more than out regardless of season. She liked the freedom of being outside, but we'd never let her do it on her own free will. There were walks and park trips, but when it came to being in the backyard with the gate, she was like "meh".

    1. Sounds like ours. She won't go out unless someone goes with her.

  10. I like all of Brianna's dressings. I'll remember this one for summer salads -- thanks for the recommendations. Faux look great!

  12. Hi Sandra - Faux does look well after her careful coiffing! I tend to stick to things that I'm used to at home - yet enjoy trying new things when I'm out ... don't like things sitting around unused! Cheers Hilary

  15. Persian, I assume? I had one and no matter how much I tried, she was a tangled mess. The spring trim did wonders.

    1. She's a Maine Coon. It's interesting how fur varies in long-hairs. In some tangling is a nonissue and some like you say turn into a tangled mess. But they are definitely higher maintenance that short hairs. I love Persians. They have the best personalities.

  18. A comfy do is always a win. Who wants to go out in the cold?

  19. I have not tried it- but I love when we try something new and like it even more. Yeah! :) Sweet cat- I can understand not wanting to go outside.

  20. There are some wonderful dressings available.
    I must say I think Faux is looking good.

    Have a great week.

    All the best Jan

  21. How old is Faux? She looks so sweet. Does she stay around your home? I hope she does since so many pussy cats get killed by cars. I have not heard of that dressing but I’m glad you like it. Are you doing the A to Z??

    1. Faux is sixteen. Not to worry, none of our critters are allowed to roam. We have a privacy/cat fence.
      No not doing the A-Z. What about you?

  23. Hi Sandra! Hope your week has been going well! I have never seen that type of salad dressing before? It looks good! Faux looks so cute! Your flowers look great! Still snow here! Thank you for the kind note on my blog! I'm doing a lot better! I'm smiling! Sometimes, I get too hard on myself. I think we all do that!
