Hi Friends! I know I haven’t been around much but I sure think about you all and hope you are well and happy. I wanted to write and give you a little update on what has been happening with us. It also ended up being a little walk down memory lane through Instagram.
The weather here has been just awful with so much rain, hail, wind, and even a little snow. Mom says there has been a lot of flooding here in Northern California — thank catness we are not too close to it. And we will probably get lots more rain through the spring. At least this means our drought is pretty much over, but all this bad weather means mom hasn’t taken me out in the car or even taken me for a walk in my stroller.
Mom says she hasn’t posted for me in a while because I haven’t inspired her. She says all I do is eat and sleep. Hello! That’s all I’ve ever done. Nothing new there. She is definitely the one lacking creativity and inspiration. Today is Christmas and Selfie Sunday so I convinced her she could surely come up with SOMETHING. I’m going to go take a nap while she works on it.
Here’s my selfie. I did my part!
So, I woke up from my nap to put the final approval on mom’s attempt at this years’ Christmas card. Even though my blogging friends may not have seen me around much, be assured that I am keeping tabs on you through your blogs and social media.

Hey, hey, hey! Look who’s here! It has been so quiet around here for us kitties. Mom has been really busy taking care of other pets, running around “doing research” for her other blog and just generally neglecting us. She hardly ever has time to nap with me in the comfy chair and I really miss that. Maybe with colder weather coming we can snuggle more. Sometimes, I resort to loving on her while she is working at the computer.
Speaking of colder weather, today was a strange day. Mom told me the weatherman said it was going to rain but it was so sunny and beautiful this morning. I laid on the back of the couch in a wonderful sun puddle and soaked it all in just in case the weatherman was right. Sure enough, about one in the afternoon it was like mom turned the lights … Continue reading
Furiends, I have a tale to tell you. I think my bacon loving furiend, Sammy, will especially appreciate it.
My Bacon Tale
Recently, mom made herself a bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich for lunch. When she went to sit down to eat it, as always, I sat next to her and stared. That usually gets me at least one or two bites of whatever she is eating. I stared and stared but I got no reward. She ate the whole thing without giving me one single bite!
You Have to Make Your Own Luck
Mom set her empty plate on the table and went to sit in the comfy chair to rest for a while. Lucky for me she fell asleep. I … Continue reading
Today marks two years that I have been a blogging kitty. That’s about 1/8 of an average kitty’s lifespan! Seems pretty hard to believe and time has just flown by. Mom and I talked about making a big deal and having a big party but we decided instead to just thank you all for being here and being our friends.
Celebrating My 2nd Blogoversary with My
Most Popular for the Past Year
Have You Heard of Whisker Fatigue?
I am absolutely mortified to see that this photo of my silly brofurs is my most popular post on Instagram for the past year.
I never did tell you why I went to the vet during my big road trip to the BlogPaws conference in Arizona. Mom was waiting for some information from my vet on stomatitis in cats but he hasn’t had time to put it together. Since today is Bring Your Cat to the Vet Day, mom thought it would be a good time to go ahead and tell you about it anyway.
Stomatitis in Cats
Mom has known for a while that I had gingivitis or probably even stomatitis. Stomatitis in cats is an inflammation of the gums and mucous membranes. It can be very painful. Mom tells me no one seems to know what causes feline stomatitis but that it may be an allergic reaction to the plaque on our teeth. All vets and researchers know is that it is an abnormal immune system response. They suspect that … Continue reading
I really love Instagram and my Instagram followers. Instagram has so many great photos to see of all my pals. Here are my July Instagram favorites, but I posted lots more, so go take a look if you haven’t visited in a while.
This photo is one of the last ones mom took in my hotel room at the Sheraton Grand at Wildhorse Pass in Chandler, AZ, when I was on my big road trip. I think it is my favorite of the month. The room had such pawsome sun puddles and Mom says it is that great natural light that really shows off my eyes.
A sneak peek at tomorrow’s #selﬁe post. Be sure to visit my #blog on … Continue reading
I’m so happy to be able to share my bounty from BlogPaws with my readers. I told you that there might be enough for two giveaway winners and there was more than enough for that. I kept some of the treats and food mom wants me to try and of course some toys, but there’s lots of goodies that will be on their way today to Annamarie V. and Cathy K. Yes, that’s right, my pal Cathy Keisha was the second place winner.
Is mom ever going to get all this stuff put away? #blogpaws #blogpawsswag #swag #catsofig #instacats #catsofinstagram #blueeyedcat #catswithblogs #ChristyPaws
