Mimic Me Wednesday – Cat Training Human or Human Training Cat?

JazmineCounter

Jazmine is just one of those cats that makes you smile and melts your heart all day and night with her endearing ways. She is an absolute charmer and one of her favorite things in the whole world to do is eat. Chicken is her absolute favorite, favorite, favorite thing on this earth, but since I am a vegetarian, she doesn’t get many scraps from me that she can eat! But, no matter… she remains diligent just in case a small tidbit of cheese or something else delectable might happen her way…

The cutest aspect of her eating obsession is just how smart she is – one quick plop onto her side, coupled with a bewitching turn of her head and I am putty in her sweet little paws! The best part – if I turn my head to the side, she will do the same thing at the same time! I used to think I had trained her, but now I think she has trained me… Either way, how can you not give her a treat for being so darn adorable!?

Yeah… There’s nothing this cat can’t have with this precious look!

How about your cats – do they have any cute little tricks to get you to give them a treat?

For as long as I can remember, I’ve lived in a house full of cats and dogs. What’s important to note is that I said a house full of cats and dogs in the plural sense. And I don’t just mean one dog and one cat – I’ve usually lived in a house with an average of 3 or more dogs and 3 or more cats together at the same time and most of them came to me as rescues through shelters. Why is this important to note? Because for many of you that have dogs, you think you can’t adopt a shelter cat or kitten because you automatically assume they won’t get along so you don’t even consider it. Read more

The Meowiest of Mother’s Day Wishes!

mothersday-template-001

One of my all-time favorite pictures that captures the loving bond between mother and child – Mama Zoey snuggling with her baby Rolz when he was about 4 weeks old.

I will be off-line most of the weekend celebrating Mother’s Day with my mom as well as my mother-in-law, so I wanted to make sure to wish all of you a Happy Mother’s Day in advance in case I miss you!

It’s kind of a bittersweet day because not everyone has a mom to celebrate with, or a mom that they have a perfect relationship with, so I kind of take it in stride and just celebrate it in the broadest sense possible because the act of mothering can imply so many things to so many of us. Read more
