Stroller Selfies

Mom has been busy getting ready for our trip to BlogPaws. I spend most of my time watching from my stroller where I took today's stroller selfies. #TrippinWithChristy

017Hi everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve meowed at you all here so I hope you’ve been following me on social media. If you have, you know that mom has been crazy busy getting ready for our trip to the BlogPaws pet blogging conference in Phoenix. Who knew there would be so much to do! Just watching mom makes me tired.

Since I have such a sensitive tummy, one of the things mom did was can some meat for me to take on the trip. I have pork and beef. She mixed up dry supplements that she’ll add to each meal. She just hasn’t found a canned food that I can eat without getting diarrhea. That’s why mom Continue reading

Benefits of a Pet Water Fountain

Kitties don't have a strong drive to drink water which can lead to serious health problems. A pet water fountain can encourage them to drink more water.

I’ve been saying for the longest time that I want a water fountain. Ever since mom went to BlogPaws last year and came home telling me about all the cool fountains she saw, I’ve wanted one.

Kitties don't have a strong drive to drink water which can lead to serious health problems. A pet water fountain can encourage them to drink more water.I know how important hydration is for us kitties and how hard it is for some of us to drink enough water. We don’t have a problem at my house because we get most of our moisture from our raw food, but clean, fresh water is still so important. Getting kitties to drink is … Continue reading

BlogPaws Nose-to-Nose Awards — I’m a Finalist!

Two level sleeping - BlogPaws Nose-to-Nose Awards finalist

Oh my cat, everyone! This is definitely not a post I expected to be writing. I am so excited to announce that one of the photos on my blog has been selected as a finalist in the BlogPaws Nose-to-Nose Awards. The winners will be announced at the awards banquet at the BlogPaws Pet Bloggers Conference in June.

I was going to go to BlogPaws last year until I had a bad experience with a woofie. Mom was concerned that BlogPaws would be too much for me so, instead, she took a flat me. I’ve been planning to go this year, so being nominated for the award makes it all the more exciting. There are three other great photos in my category, including my friends at Glogirly, and I am so honored to be among them.

Here is my photo … Continue reading

It’s Spa Day — Our Special Grooming Day

Spa Day - Our Special Grooming Day

Spa Day -- Our Special Grooming Day - cat being brushed and freshly trimmed nailsToday is spa day. It’s our special grooming day and mom tries to schedule one every week. We all get a thorough brushing and our nails trimmed. Thank catness baths aren’t included! That reminds me, mom read recently that baths are not necessarily a bad thing for cats. I hope she’s not thinking that means me. I’m an indoor cat and do a find job of bathing myself. Sometimes I wish she wouldn’t do so much research.

I really enjoy the brushing half of our grooming routine. I love being brushed but I’d just as soon mom leave the nails alone. I just get them nice and sharp and she chops them off. I … Continue reading

Spring Adventure

It has been warm and sunny here and the doors and windows have been open a lot. Mom says that means spring is here. She has been working outside a little, getting the herb garden cleaned up and starting to re-pot the potted plants that survived the winter. She cleaned off the deck, put away the chair covers and brought out the cushions. She puttered around for a long time, rearranging furniture and plants.

We watched the birds on the garage roof from the dining room window and door. They weren’t deterred from gathering the seeds dropped by the big tree by mom’s bustling around.

Easter Selfies and Art

Three kitties on the couch

Hi friends and furiends! I’m so glad to be here today. It’s been really quiet around here for us kitties. Mom has been so busy that I haven’t been on any adventures and she hasn’t even spent much time playing with us. Don’t feel sorry for us, though. We’ve still been getting lots of loving and have had plenty of time to do our favorite thing — snooze, as evidenced by the following photo.

Three kitties on the couchIn fact, this is how this post came about. Here we were, having a great snooze in a splendid sun puddle and along comes mom with the camera. I think she took several photos before I woke up and noticed her. Sometimes, she can be … Continue reading

Regarding My Absence

Pensive Christy -- thinking about what has been going on during my absence

Good morning my dear friends and furiends! I haven’t been around much lately and I feel like a terrible furiend, but my typist has been very busy. She even told me she has had to rethink things about my blog. You see, when we started this blog, mom was recovering from a serious illness and needed something to lighten things up. After we moved here and she started feeling better, she knew it was time to start thinking about making some money to supplement her retirement income. She learned about monetizing a blog and we tried to do that with mine but it just isn’t growing very much and I don’t have enough readers to make it happen. I have a lot of followers on social media but most of them just don’t visit my blog.
