  • eee! <33
    I have a cat, only one unfortunately. I work for a vet specialized in cats though, so I spend lots of time with hundreds of kitties!


  • Clearly you have not met my cat. If everything I learned, I learned from her, my list would be quite short.

    1. Pretend you hate being picked up, but purr the entire time.
    2. Be afraid of EVERYTHING.

  • Glad everyone enjoyed this 😀 My 3 kitties seem to have it made, but yeah… they can teach some good lessons!

    @Veliaf – Of course! Permission granted. 🙂

    @Sprink – Those are good additions!

    @Nim – xD I have one that fits your #1 and one that fits your #2. This is why I needed 3 cats to teach me these lessons 😛


We are a family of gamers. Mom (Darcy/Syrana) and Dad (Brian/Sideshow) have been gaming for as long as they can remember back when you only had a joystick to use and saved your games to cassette tapes.

They've been gaming together since they met in 2002. Sometime after 2006, they both started playing World of Warcraft and did that for many years. They started this blog, originally called Sideshow & Syrana which has now transitioned to the new Stay-At-Home Gamers site, while keeping all of the original content.

Starting in 2010, two more gamers came along (now known as Princess Boo and Mr. X) and they are now old enough where they both enjoy playing games and watching others play games. They are both excited to have others to watch them play their favorite games. Come along with us and let's enjoy these games together!
