The Birth of an Adventure Cat

Enjoying the ride around Petco in the shopping cart

As you may know, mom will be attending her second BlogPaws conference in June. Last year, even though she had planned to take me, she ended up going by herself. My harness training just didn’t go as planned!

For this year’s conference, she really wants me to go with her so she had planned to work diligently on my harness training and getting me out in public. So far, the weather has put a damper on that. It has been raining almost steadily since Christmas. Mom says rain won’t make me melt but she wants my trips out to be pleasant.

On Monday, mom got out the treats and I ran through my tricks a couple of times, so far sit, high five and up. Then the harness went on. No problem. We do this often.

I followed mom around for a while … Continue reading

Mom Finally Got it Right!

How we help mom get more exercise

As you may recall, mom doesn’t make the best choices when it comes to bringing gifts to us when she goes places. When she went to a big craft show in Sacramento she brought me a harness and when she went to her first cat show to see my pal Summer, she brought me a pooper scooper. I wasn’t too thrilled with these things, even if they were purple.Help mom Echo

Last weekend, she went to another cat show to see Summer … Continue reading

My First Car Ride in Over a Year

Christy in her carrier

Christy sleeping in leopard harness prepping for- My First Car Ride in Over a YearMom has really been trying to work with me to get me ready for the BlogPaws conference in June. I’ve been wearing my harness a lot but what I need to work on now is getting out of the house and around people. The problem is, it hasn’t stopped raining, and even snowing, in weeks. When we have one or two days without rain, mom has outdoor chores to do and then it starts raining again. Mom says we can’t complain though. After four years of drought, we need all the rain and snow we can get.

A couple of weeks ago, mom finally decided to take me out on a day … Continue reading

My First Time Taking the Pet Blogger Challenge

My First Time Taking the Pet Blogger Challenge

I first read about the 2016 Pet Blogger Challenge, hosted by GoPetFriendly.com, a few days ago on Facebook. I answered some of these questions in my Looking Back at 2015 — My Tops and Favorites post, but it never hurts to take another look at things. I missed posting this in time to join the linkup (See #10!) but thought you might like to read the answers anyway.

1. How long have you been blogging? And, for anyone who is visiting for the first time, please give a quick description of the subject of your blog.

I started blogging in August of 2014. Mom was doing more educational writing on three other blogs. She was having health issues and wanted to lighten things up a bit. I mostly blog about my daily life with my two … Continue reading

The Purple Harness

WW Flower PowerA while back, mom went to a big craft fair in Sacramento called The Harvest Festival. She went last year, too, and since we had just moved here, she got a few nice things for the house.

Well, this year, I thought maybe she’d bring something back for me. Remember when she went to her first cat show to see our pal, Summer? Do you remember what she brought back for me? A pooper scooper! Now, what kind of a gift is that for a cat? Isn’t that really just another gift for her? And what did she think made it all right? It is purple. Yes, I like purple — purple feathers, purple catnip mice, … Continue reading

Looking Back at 2015 – My Tops and Favorites

ChristyHappy New Years Eve! Today, we say goodbye to 2015 as 2016 peeks around the corner. Mom says time is just flying by. I don’t really get that, but I know it means something to the humans.

It’s hard to believe I am already a third of the way into my second year of blogging. For my blogoversary in August, I wrote a review of my first year, highlighting some of my accomplishments. It was my third most popular post of the year. With 2015 coming to an end, since my blogoversary post looked at accomplishments, I thought I would look at some statistics for the year.

It came as no surprise that my top post for the year was for the Continue reading

We Have Our Very First Christmas Tree!

Me, Christy, sitting under my very first Christmas tree

Me, Christy, and Echo under the Christmas treeYes, we have a tree. Echo, Ocean and I have been alive and living with mom for seven Christmases and this is our very first Christmas tree. There was a good reason though, I guess, that we didn’t have one all those years. For the first five Christmases, mom was fostering kittens, lots of kittens, and knew a tree was not a good idea with all of them around.

In the beginning, we were those foster kittens. As you may know, Echo and Ocean were mom’s first two foster kitties. I came along a few weeks later. (There were several other kittens between Ocean and me.) The three of us were all a … Continue reading

Thankful Every Day

Good afternoon friends and furiends! I hope you had a wonderful day yesterday with loved ones, whether or not you were celebrating Thanksgiving!

Echo, Ocean and I had a pretty quiet day since mom was gone most of the day. She gave us a great breakfast of our raw chicken and rabbit then headed out early for Minden, NV with her friend Kelly. They went to Kelly’s uncle’s house, about two hours away, for Thanksgiving dinner.

If you saw my post on Instagram, you know we had snow on Wednesday, so it was uncertain if they would actually be able to go. To get to Minden from our house you have to drive over the Kit Carson pass at 8600 feet. If there was snow on Thursday, they wouldn’t be able to go, or even want to for that matter. By Wednesday afternoon, no snow was predicted for … Continue reading
