Our Secret Paws Finally Revealed

Happy Monday my friends! I hope you all had a most wonderful Christmas. I know we did.

On Christmas Day, mom finally let us open our Secret Paws box. We were so excited to find out it came from our friends Gus, Jaq, Pearl and their human mom Jenny from As the World Purrs. Thank you so much!

First, of course, someone had to inspect the box and its wrapped contents. I let Ocean have that honor.

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

14 Ways to Help Your Local Shelter or Rescue Group

Learn how to support your local animal shelter or rescue group

Because I was rescued from a high-kill shelter, it is really important to me to paw it forward to help other homeless kitties. I am one grateful girl to have been rescued and I love to tell the humans who work tirelessly to save animals how much I appreciate them. National Animal Shelter and Rescue Appreciation Week is the purrfect time to do just that. Although I do not support the organization that started it, and I don’t understand how people still can, I wanted to take the time to share with you a few ways you can help your local animal shelter or rescue group. They still deserve your support even if the national organization that started the event does not. When you donate locally, you can be more certain that your donation will actually go to the animals in need.

Then and Now – Beginning my Second Year of Blogging

Then and Now - Beginning my Second Year of Blogging www.christypaws.comHappy Monday, Everyone! I told you I would tell you today the results of the comment-a-thon for A-Pal Humane Society on my blogoversary post. First, mom and I want to say thank you for all the kind words. I did not reply to each comment individually as I wanted to make it easy for old mom to be able to know how many comments there are. Even though that was the plan, I forgot and replied to one and there was a reply to that. Bottom line is, there were Donation to A-Pal Humane Society - Commentathon on Blogoversary Continue reading

It’s My Blogoversary!

Blogoversary and Comment-a-thon for A-Pal Humane SocietyHello everyone and thanks for stopping by. I am one excited kitty today. I can hardly believe it, but I have been blogging for one whole year. That’s a long time in the life of a cat! When I first started blogging, I never really gave it a thought as to why I was doing it and it has been a bit of a walk down memory lane figuring it all out. But, before I get started (I might get long-winded) please help yourselves to some refreshments.

Last year, mom was recovering from surgery and going through chemotherapy. She was writing for her two other blogs, Horse Buzz A-Z and Savvy Pet Care, as well as the rescue’s blog. She had joined BlogPaws in June of 2013 for the … Continue reading

What IS that thing?

What is that thing? - We won a FroliCat Flik

Early last week, a package arrived at our door. Mom brought it in and opened it up. We were about to check out the box when she pulled out another, smaller box. We gave the bigger box a cursory inspection then came back to check out the smaller box.

Mom opened the second box and out came a big, round, white object. While mom went out to the garage for something, we checked it out but it didn’t smell like anything so we weren’t impressed. Mom came back with some things, batteries she said, that she put inside the white thing then set it on the floor and flicked a switch.

Oh, my cat! It started making noise and a string kept disappearing inside and jumping back out.

Feeling Lucky

Uh oh. It’s one of those days that mom is in a cooking mood. We spent several hours this morning catching up on our blogs and still are working on Sunday! Don’t know why she thinks she can take time to cook. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that she is hungry and if she doesn’t cook, she doesn’t eat. No fast food places around here!

She is making bread from the book Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day (she discovered that a few weeks ago and now always has dough in the fridge), soup that she saw on The Pioneer Woman (we watch that together all the time), and she’s also talking about baking cookies. Where in there did she mention something for us? Maybe we will at least get some of the special treats she makes us.

New Year’s Tradition

Do you have any traditions in your family? We don’t have many, but one tradition is to watch the Rose Parade every New Year’s morning. Mom had a fleeting thought that we might not be able to see it here but she didn’t need to worry. Apparently, it is quite a big deal and is seen in a lot of places. Do you watch the Rose Parade?

Happy New Year 2015 - New Year's Tradition

On the start of this New Year, I wanted to let you all know how grateful I am that you are here. In my short blogging career, I have met some wonderful furiends and friends and I so appreciate everyone who visits, reads and comments on my musings. I wish you all the … Continue reading
