Yesterday, I walked down to the basement, or to the “Brie-cave” as my brother refers to it. There, my cat was in her litter box, taking care of business, as it were. She looked up and saw me, and was immediately filled with such joy and excitement that she felt the need to run out of her litter box before entirely finishing her business.
It was like a slow motion scene from a movie – her liquid cat discharge spraying everywhere!!
(I feel the need to mention she recently had to switch cat food to a hypo-allergenic brand, and it seems her internals are still adjusting to her new cuisine.)
She leaped onto the couch where I was now sitting and smeared a giant streak onto my oh-so-comfy blanket, which immediately made its way into the washing machine.
And so I got to thinking about life. I mean, when was the last time you were SO excited about something you literally just shit everywhere?
It must be very freeing.

A new year – a new CatChatz. Managed to get the new one edited in one day – Thanks Snow Day!
This episode has Melanie and Shelley making up New Years Resolutions for their cat friends, Peanut and Indy. We’re also joined by guest-star Dina Senior, my all-time truest-non-blood-related friend in the world, who is ready to pump you & your kitty up this year!

Well, I may have spent the past two days sick in bed, but tonight, I’ll finally be getting out of my PJs (or maybe just putting on a more socially acceptable going-out kinda PJs) for this event right here:
(Since the poster was made, we’ve also had two great additions to the line-up: Ned & Dave and Mark DeBonis. Huzzah!)
If you’re thinking about coming, and you’re not sure what kind of food items to bring, check out what some of the performers’ favourite canned goods and maybe you’ll be inspired:
Ned Petrie (of Ned & Dave):
“Pumpkin Pie Filling (although if they could actually ‘can’ the nature of ‘good’-ness, that would be the tops)”
David Tichauer (the Dave part of Ned & Dave):
“My favorite canned good is the laughter on the Flintstones.”
“Peaches… millions of peaches. we love canned peaches so much that we moved to the country where we found a nice man who put fresh peaches in a can. for us and only us… he did make us kiss him in his little dun buggy for each can, but they’re so delish that we were okay with it.”
Kristeen von Hagen:
“Soup! And Kraft dinner!”
“Tuna combined with a can of corn. It’s a cheap student meal of protein and whatever corn is. (Chef Boyardee Ravioli is a close second)”
Vest of Friends:
Canned Pizza. It doesn’t exist yet but we’re working on it. We figure people like pizza, so why not put it in a can? Get it? We’re smart.”
All great ideas! Maybe some of you will end up bringing some canned pizza of your own to give to:

I had my Level D improv show last night at the Second City Training Centre – it was a lot of fun despite my being tired from having just driven back into town from Niagara in a rental vehicle with New York license plates than I’m paranoid I will ding because I’m a terrible parker. But there you have it, the show went well and I got to spend the rest of this Sunday evening as far away from Grey Cup nonsense as possible! (SO glad I left King/Peter before the game let out. SO. glad.)
The newest episode of CatChatz was released to the world today. This one guest stars my buddy, the very funny and talented Erin Rodgers as a Pet Psychic/Therapist who tries to help Melanie Marble (Paige McIntyre) get over her separation anxiety resulting from her catless move to the big city.
CatChatz – E05 – Pet Therapy
I hope you enjoy it! Share it with the people in your lives who love cats. (ie. Everyone, amirite? #catsrule)
Speaking of which, I’m taking Peanut to the vet on Thursday because she keeps scratching her face so much she looks like Heath Ledger’s Joker. Pet ownership is the greatest! Now, where’s Dad’s credit card, again?
Friends and supporters of cat humour, you’ll be pleased to know the newest episode of my attempt at a low-budget webseries is now available on YouTube to be viewed by all!
Check it out:
CatChatz – E04 – Feline Fashion
I spent the whole morning/early afternoon shooting the second episode of my webseries with Paige McIntyre and realized I don’t think I ever posted the first one here to CCC. This project started out as an assignment for our Sit-Com Writing class with Anne Fenn, but we figured we’d keep it up whenever we could, so… without further or do, I take you to CatChatz – Episode One – Cooking for your Cat:
(Sometimes the sound gets messed up mid-way, but then it gets better – it depends how crappy your computer speakers are. Mine are crappy.)
