A Moment of Thanks for all Things Makin’ Biscuits

Deb and Jazmine of Makin' Biscuits

From myself and Jazmine, the ultimate biscuit making kitty in our house, thank you so much for your support of Makin’ Biscuits – Weird Cat Habits and the Even Weirder Habits of the Humans Who Love Them! Illustration by Stephanie Piro exclusively for Makin’ Biscuits.

Writing and publishing a book is a bit like having a baby. It takes several long months before the book is completed and once it is, you share the news like a proud parent who has just delivered a newborn baby. That’s how I feel with Makin’ Biscuits – Weird Cat Habits and the Even Weirder habits of the Humans Who Love Them. Now that the book is done, it seems all I do is post pictures about it on social media and talk about it in nearly every conversation. Read more

Monday Motivation – What Inspires You?


Here’s to another week, bright and full of possibilities…as long as I have my cats and caffeine!

It’s Monday and I don’t know about you, but for me, the two things that get me going and help keep me motivated for the week ahead are my cats and coffee! Here’s to a good week everyone – and if you happen to celebrate the holidays and are looking for that purr-fect gift for that cat loving, caffeine guzzling person on your list, stop by at RCTees where you can find not only the great shirt I’m wearing, but a whole host of cat-related clothing!

I have several shirts from RCTees and love that they come to you new, but with that already soft, broken-in feeling. You know what I mean – the kind of shirt you put on that instantly feels like a warm, comforting hug! I guess I need add that to my list – cats, caffeine, and a comfortable shirt motivate me…

Sunday Selfies – It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas!


It’s that time of year when the Christmas decorations come out of storage. Mia seems to think I took them out just for her enjoyment…

Sure, life is stressful and far from perfect, but it’s that wonderful time of the year when I try to take a break from it all and focus on what’s truly important to me…my family. My book is done, blogging will be at a minimum, and most of my time will be spent doing what I love – getting the house ready for family and friends who will be coming by for the holidays!!


In a house like mine, I’m never without a cat or two wanting to help out!! Thanks Kizmet – nice job knocking the decorations over!

I’ve been checking my list to see who’s naughty and nice. I’ve decided to forego the naughty and focus on the nice…especially when it comes to my cats…as what might appear to be naughty to some, is actually them trying to be nice by “helping” out!!

Happy Sunday all – and on a more serious note, our heart goes out to those that have lost a beloved companion in the past few days. R.I.P. to dear Fiona of The Cat on My Head and sweet Sammy of One Spoiled Cat.

It’s Finally Here! Makin’ Biscuits – Weird Cat Habits and the Even Weirder Habits of the Humans Who Love Them


Makin’ Biscuits by Deborah Barnes, ZZP Publishing, LLC.

It happened nearly two years ago – I got out of the shower one morning and bent over to wrap my wet hair with a towel. Moments later, I felt something land on top of my head – it was Mia, my extroverted cat who normally didn’t like close-up human contact. For whatever reason, she had decided it was the perfect place to settle for a nap. Being that I’ve had cats my entire life, I was accustomed to them doing weird things, but this was odd, even for my standards, and that’s when the idea of a book of weird cat habits formed in my toweled, cat-covered head.  Read more

How to Increase Steps With Fitbit by Incorporating Cats Into Your Routine!


Fitbit – check. Cat – check. Ready, set, go – find out how you can increase your steps by exercising with your cat!

Much as I would prefer to work from home, I have to admit the company I work for isn’t so bad. My co-workers are awesome (many of them are cat lovers), and management is always trying to come up with new ways to encourage group activities. We’ve had several company sponsored lunches since I started back in March, and they even shut work down early one Friday so everyone could go bowling together, including food and drink. But their most recent attempt is my favorite by far. Because most of us have desk jobs, for those that wanted to participate, they bought us Fitbits to encourage exercise and set up quarterly step challenges with prizes to boot! Read more
