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

Have You Heard of Whisker Fatigue?

Bowl, mat, box 181_3527Frankly, my mom hadn’t heard much about whisker fatigue, or whisker stress, until she did some research for a post she wrote about kitty whiskers on her Savvy Pet Care blog. If she had asked me, I could have told her all about it. I mean, doesn’t it make sense that since our whiskers are very sensitive, that it would be uncomfortable to stuff our face in a small dish to eat? And humans wonder why their kitties ask for more food when the dish is not empty. Humans can be pretty lame sometimes!

After mom did the above mentioned research, she started looking for other dishes for us, so when we were contacted and asked if we wanted to try … Continue reading

Do Cats Really Like Fish?

Do Cats Really Like FishDo cats really like fish? I ask this question because it came up at our house this past week. The answer to this question in our house is, it depends.Primal Sardine Grind

Mom got us some Primal sardine grind at our local store where she gets our raw meat. Since we love an occasional treat of tuna, she thought we would love this. Ocean dove right into it and licked his plate clean. Echo and I weren’t so sure. I licked it a little and Echo (Mr. Picky) just walked away. Now mind you, this was totally different from what we are used to eating. It smelled different and had a much different texture. And you know we cats do not like change.

To get me … Continue reading

Caturday Art: Hungry Kitty

What's this hungry kitty doing?

You know how the humans say you shouldn’t shop when you are hungry? Mom said maybe she shouldn’t work on Caturday art just before dinner. Those tri-tips do look pretty good to a hungry kitty. No need to cook them for me though. I’ll take them just the way they are!

5 Things to do Before Disaster Strikes — Cat Disaster Preparedness

Cats-in-crates - 5 Things to do Before Disaster Strikes -- Cat Disaster PreparednessSeptember was National Preparedness Month. We didn’t write about it at the time — we got to live it. When the Butte Fire broke out on the afternoon of September 10th, mom knew we might have to evacuate. By the next morning, it was becoming a real probability so she started getting some things together like important papers and the computers and camera equipment. Late that morning she learned that we would definitely be evacuated and things got into full swing. We then had about two hours before we would have to leave.

Mom had our carriers ready and handy. She closed us in the family room and put the carriers in there with the doors open. Of … Continue reading

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.

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
