Hi furiends. It’s been a while since I’ve posted an update and I finally convinced mom to take a few minutes. If you are on my mailing list and read my last newsletter, you know what has been keeping mom so busy. We are moving again and our house is a disaster! Mom seems to be going off in so many directions and nothing is getting completed. Stuff is everywhere! Is that the way humans normally work? Fortunately, she hasn’t messed with my favorite place to hang out — my stroller.
Not only are we moving but I think mom is going through a crisis. She says she is just fulfilling a lifelong … Continue reading
I have a funny story to tell you. It’s been a secret but I guess it won’t be after I tell you about it.
If you’ve ever met me or really looked at some of my photos, you know I’m not the most svelte kitty out there. I’ve never had the slim waist like my brofurs Echo and Ocean. This is evident even in this photo from the BlogPaws conference in Phoenix in 2016 when I weighed about 11 fluffy pounds.
I’m not ashamed to admit that I’m a napping kind of kitty. If I were a human, I guess you’d call me a couch potato.
Traveling with Cats
Whether you are a seasoned veteran traveler or getting ready to head out on your first trip, I bet you’ll find lots of useful information on traveling with cats in these posts from some of my best pals. Oh, and there’s even a post written by mom for her Savvy Pet Care blog. It stars me, of course!
Planning – Before You Go
Every successful trip starts with a great plan. This is especially important when traveling with cats. Rules are different for us than for humans. Here are things to take care of before you go.
OMC! I bet you can’t believe I’m posting but I just had to tell you some things.
Between spring being on the verge of happening and the BlogPaws Conference coming up next week, mom has gotten a bee in her bonnet. She says that even though we aren’t going to BlogPaws this year, it is inspiring her. She has gotten out all my harnesses and made me start wearing them. I got really used to wearing one when I got to go to BlogPaws in 2016. I haven’t worn one in a while so they feel a little strange. I was slinking a little at first but lots of treats helped me get over that pretty quickly!
I wonder when I’ll get to go out in the yard on a leash. That dog that hates cats still lives next door and mom is a little concerned about … Continue reading
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
Furiends, I have a tale to tell you. I think my bacon loving furiend, Sammy, will especially appreciate it.
My Bacon Tale
Recently, mom made herself a bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich for lunch. When she went to sit down to eat it, as always, I sat next to her and stared. That usually gets me at least one or two bites of whatever she is eating. I stared and stared but I got no reward. She ate the whole thing without giving me one single bite!
You Have to Make Your Own Luck
Mom set her empty plate on the table and went to sit in the comfy chair to rest for a while. Lucky for me she fell asleep. … Continue reading
Today marks two years that I have been a blogging kitty. That’s about 1/8 of an average kitty’s lifespan! Seems pretty hard to believe and time has just flown by. Mom and I talked about making a big deal and having a big party but we decided instead to just thank you all for being here and being our friends.
Celebrating My 2nd Blogoversary with My
Most Popular for the Past Year
Have You Heard of Whisker Fatigue?
I am absolutely mortified to see that this photo of my silly brofurs is my most popular post on Instagram for the past year.
I never did tell you why I went to the vet during my big road trip to the BlogPaws conference in Arizona. Mom was waiting for some information from my vet on stomatitis in cats but he hasn’t had time to put it together. Since today is Bring Your Cat to the Vet Day, mom thought it would be a good time to go ahead and tell you about it anyway.
Stomatitis in Cats
Mom has known for a while that I had gingivitis or probably even stomatitis. Stomatitis in cats is an inflammation of the gums and mucous membranes. It can be very painful. Mom tells me no one seems to know what causes feline stomatitis but that it may be an allergic reaction to the plaque on our teeth. All vets and researchers know is that it is an abnormal immune system response. They suspect that … Continue reading
