Makin’ Biscuits “Love Hurts” Feature Chapter for Valentine’s Day!
It’s Valentine’s Day and I love my cats dearly. But sometimes with love, comes pain. That’s what I discuss in the chapter entitled “Love Hurts” in my book Makin’ Biscuits – Weird Cat Habits and the Even Weirder Habits of the Humans Who Love Them. Like the time Zee used Dan’s head as a launch pad to fling himself across the room in pursuit of whatever dangerous predator fabricated itself in our living room. Or like when Peanut makes biscuits on my tummy with such gusto that my stomach starts to gurgle in protest because it feels like she’s rearranging my innards! Or when Zoey attacks my toes when I sit on the couch because she thinks they are monsters that are going to harm me!
Some of the others joining me in this chapter with stories are Lynn Maria Thompson of Old Maid Cat Lady whose cat Gilly will wake up his cat-mate, the Captain, for some playtime by biting his butt; Ingrid Rickmar of Minka & Misha Cat Rescue whose cat Minka uses her feet as a scratching post; Cindy Rein of Catopia Cat Rescue who was able to socialize one of her TNR cats, Finn, a problematic biter, by teaching him some manners, including how to sit on command, and Elizabeth Roberts-Berg whose cat Lover could use some anger-management tips when she’s around Elizabeth’s dog, Cheri.
I end the chapter by sharing the importance of providing scratching post options for your cat, why declawing is harmful for your cat, and tips on how to safely cut your cats nails. What about you, any cat love stories that hurt?
