Wallace is a Girl — Must Take Selfies

Mom and Wallace take a selfe together

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

They Are All Adopted!

Mom cat with three kittens

Good morning friends and furiends. I am so excited, I am doing the happy dance here. When mom went to the Feed Barn yesterday to photograph the kitties, there weren’t any there! That’s right NONE. All of A-PAL Humane Society‘s kitties have been adopted, even Flower Puss who was still there last week.

They don’t expect to have any more kitties until kitten season starts in the spring and those won’t be ready for adoption until summer. That is so different from when we lived in Southern California in a much warmer (in the winter) and more populated area where kitten season never ended and strays were picked up all the time. The rescue there always had hundreds of kitties. It’s so great that all the adults have been adopted because once there are kittens the adults … Continue reading

Christy's selfie before the Kitten BowlI have to go watch the Kitten Bowl! Are you going to watch? What team are you supporting? Here’s my trading card. I’ll be rooting for Boomer’s Bobcats. I had to, right? Their team color is purple.

Adopt Buddy — A-PAL Humane Society

Adopt Buddy -- Available through A-PAL Humane Society, Jackson, CAI wish that Buddy’s story was unique but it’s not. He is an owner surrender. That’s a sad situation but we don’t judge because you never know what was happening in his family to cause him to be relinquished. All that matters now is that he is safe with A-PAL Humane Society.

Buddy has actually had an adopter since his arrival at A-PAL but the adopter lived out of the area. A pilot was going to fly him to his new home but that kept falling through so he is once again available for adoption.

Buddy is a handsome, 6-year-old, long-haired, tabby, and just look at those amazing whiskers! He is very laid-back, sweet and … Continue reading

Adopt Flower Puss — A-Pal Humane Society

Adopt Flower Puss

Flower Puss is luckier than a lot of feral cats. She and three other feral females were trapped five years ago. They were all spayed and have been living at an auto center ever since as barn cats. The person who has cared for them all these years has decided it is time for Flower Puss to have the indoor-only home she deserves. He says she is just too sweet and friendly to be an outdoor barn cat. She even comes when she is called.

Adopt Flower Puss -- A-Pal Humane SocietyAs you can see, she is a beautiful, long-haired tortie lady with elegant, white whiskers and a mustache! Mom can vouch for the fact that she is sweet and friendly because she … Continue reading

Be the Change — My Blog the Change Roundup

Once a quarter, animal lovers everywhere come together to support Blog the Change for Animals. Bloggers write about their favorite animal-related cause and share them on social media where everyone can read, comment and share them more. We want to be the change for animals!

Not just for bloggers… Be, Blog and Read the Change for Animals!

I have three main things that I am passionate about when it comes to animal welfare: Spay/Neuter; Feral Cats; and Adopt, Don’t Shop. I have Blogged for the Change twice since I started blogging a little over a year ago. In October 2015, I blogged about Spay/Neuter. In July 2015, I was excited to announce my new relationship with A-Pal Humane Society when I became a Cat with a Cause. I didn’t write a specific post this quarter so I thought I would share some … Continue reading

Adopt Mr. White (and Hannah) and have a White Christmas!

$25 specialMom went to the Feed Barn yesterday to photograph our featured kitty for today and found two that I want to tell you about. Before I do though, I want to say that mom was pretty happy that there weren’t many kitties there! They are having a special reduced adoption fee for the holidays and it seems to be helping find kitties homes.

The first kitty I want to tell you about is Mr. White who has an all too familiar story. He is an obvious house kitty who was apparently dumped by his former owner. He is a sweet, friendly guy who had already been neutered before he was rescued. He was found living in a brush pile behind a veterinarian’s office. He had tried … Continue reading

Are You Feeling Lucky? — National Black Cat Day

Are you feeling lucky? - #NationalBlackCatDayMom is not a superstitious person but Friday the 13th was not a good day for her. When she tried to leave a pet sitting client’s house early in the afternoon, her car would not start. She tried to start it several times then got out. When she did, she heard a dripping sound and the smell of gasoline was almost overpowering. She looked down to see a large puddle under her car. She called AAA and they told her the fire department would have to clear the car before it could be towed.

The fire truck arrived and the two firemen checked out the car. It only leaked when it was under pressure so it was good to be towed. The young lady at AAA, although very sweet, was new and didn’t know how to handle … Continue reading
