Sunday Selfie – Finding the Joy in Simple Moments

This picture of Mia and Peanut was taken back in 2009. While I certainly had my share of setbacks back then, I often find myself yearning for those days when life seemed simpler. Everything is just so hectic and stressful nowadays. But for a cat, the...

Help! Need Some Last Minute Submissions for Upcoming Cat-Related Book!

Wow! Hard to believe, but my upcoming book is finally starting to take shape! Focusing on the silly, odd, crazy, and weird things our cats do, the premise is simple—with over 70 million homeless cats living on the streets and in shelters in the U.

With Cats, Every Day is a Day at the Olympics!

The 2014 Olympics will come to an end this Sunday and I have to admit I have not watched as much of the venue as I have in past years. Like much of the population, any ice-skating event was my favorite part of the competition, but this year my heart...

Combating the Groundhog Day of Life to Help Promote Inner Peace, Health, and Happiness for You and Your Cats

“I Got You Babe.” Remember how that song played every morning as the alarm sounded at 6:00 a.m. on the movie Groundhog Day and Bill Murray’s character found himself repeating the exact same day over and over? I think in life as we move from one...

The FBI’s Most Wanted List – Feline Division

Wordless Wednesday – Cats Without Rules…

Yup, you got it… counters, clutter, keys, and Kizmet. It’s a typical day in the life at our house as Kizmet lays claim to everything in his sight, as his casual extended paw of possessiveness shows. My keys. My counter. My clutter.  Oh,...

Jackie’s “Too Many Words Wednesday” Guest Post and Photo Gallery Debut!

Editors Note: I have my own perceptions of my cats, but what I find most fascinating is how others perceive them. As you may be aware, last week was both happy and sad at the same time, as we had family visiting for summer vacation and also to pay re...

Caturday Reflection – Is the Grass Always Greener on the Other Side?

Is grass really greener on the other side? The truth of the matter is simple – maybe it isn’t. But then again, if you never decide to look, maybe it is. The choice or crossroads dilemma becomes how much you really want to find out and that is...

Muahahaha – “It’s All Mine” Wordless Wednesday!

Muahahaha – do you ever think your cats have turned into Dr. Evil when they become possessive of a toy or treats? Much as my gang love one another and get along quite famously, when it comes to certain toys there is just no room for sharing. Bu...

Wordless Wednesday – A Cat’s Little Sunlight Secret

I love this photo of Zoey because it implies so much, while saying so little. Every afternoon the sun will start its slow ascent to setting and its rays will permeate through the dining room window, just beckoning a cat to come sit for a spell in tha...

One Cat’s Fighting is Another Cat’s Playtime…

Somebody left a comment the other day on a post I did featuring a very serene picture of Zee, asking me if my darling family of eight cats fight with each other. To which I say, the better question to ask would be, “Do pigs fly?” The simple answe...

Wordless Wednesday – The Reward of Coming in Last Place

I find the older I get, the more I contemplate and respect the fact that our physical time on this earth is not infinite. Our eldest cat, Mr. Jazz, has had some health issues of late and I have been treasuring my time and moments with him on a differ...

Now that all the dust has settled from returning home from BlogPaws, I am looking forward to spending a much needed three day holiday weekend with Dan and the kitties. What do we have in store you might ask? Well, to start with, today I will actually...

Cat Behavior

Cats are known as solitary animals. They don't hunt communally or share the spoils of a hunt. Sometimes cats with adjoining territories will get together for a pleasant evening grooming session, but on the whole they are not the most social creatures...

Is Mom Home Yet?

Oh kitties… Even though I am having fun with all my blogging friends, I miss you too and promise I will be home soon… Please don’t be too mad at me – I will have lots of great swag to share with you!!

A Happy Cat Tail for a Happy Wordless Wednesday!

A cat’s tail speaks a language of it’s own and in this case, I would use the words plucky, confident, happy, and self-assured to describe what our little Mia with her tail held high and proud is projecting  as she enjoys one of those pre...

Upholstery Caturday!

When you need an idea for a blog post, I highly recommend you reupholster your dining room chairs. Sure, it requires planning, time, money, tools, and the ability to know how to recover furniture, but once you have all those bases covered and throw i...

Why Do Cats Arch Their Backs?

A cat who is arching her back quite dramatically is doing so as a defensive reaction. When threatened she will do this to make herself look as intimidating as possible. In animals this is a very common reaction. For example, the cobra does this when...
