When it Comes to Cats, the Eyes Have It!

Zoey

Granted, today is Sunday, a day meant for rest and relaxation. And granted, my cats are quite adept at following that mindset based on the nearly 16 hours a day they nap. But when awake, those glorious, mesmerizing eyes of theirs have a thousand stories to tell. Probably most of them are based on food. Some of them on bird watching, and the rest are those benign moments where they appear to be intently staring at absolutely nothing at all, thinking us foolish as we stare back, pretending we see something, too*.

For Sunday-Selfie I’ve given Zoey the top billing picture with the rest of the gang to follow! Hope you enjoy and have a great day everyone!

*It turns out when cats stare into space, seemingly at nothing at nothing at all, they actually can see something us humans don’t. If you’d like to learn more about this fascinating ability cats have, as well as to read some entertaining and informative stories about cat behavior, please consider reading Makin’ Biscuits – Weird Cat Habits and the Even Weirder Habits of the Humans Who Love Them which recently won three awards at the Cat Writers’ Association Annual Awards Communications Contest, including Best Book/Other Category, the Animal-Human Bond Award from Goodnewsforpets.com, and the coveted President’s Award which represents the best of the best from all entries.

Easy Like Sunday Morning Every Day of the Week

No one in our house does “Easy Like Sunday Morning” better than Jazmine. Actually, she does it best Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday morning as well. When that girl is out, she’s out! Anyhow, taking a cue from her, I’m looking forward to an easy-going kind of day myself. Maybe visiting a wetlands nature park with Dan so he can practice with his new camera taking pictures of Florida wildlife. I’ll also be making a big batch of homemade macaroni and cheese so I’ll have several meals prepared in advance for the week ahead and I’ll be using up some over-ripe bananas to make bread as well. How about you all, what kind of easy-going plans do you have for today?

Ringing in a Positive, Happy, and Healthy New Year with a Little Help from My Cats

NewYear1 For the past couple of years I’ve started New Year’s off by sharing some quotes that feel particularly relevant to where I am at my life and where I’d like to be moving forward. They’re not meant to be resolutions per se, but rather a roadmap to help guide my inner self down a road of personal growth, peace, and happiness (please click any of the images to enlarge). This year is no different and I found the overwhelming theme to what I want is to rid myself of as much as possible is negativity. Read more

Quotable Wednesday – The Cat Calm in the Midst of Chaos

If you are having trouble reading quote, please click image to enlarge.

I am back from taking a couple days off from work so I could spend some time with my step-daughter, Crystal, who was visiting from Boston. It was great having the time off, aside from the fact that the work doesn’t do itself while I am away. I was greeted to a cheery mountain of paperwork a mile high at the beginning of this week, just waiting for my return. Needless to say, playing catch up in the fast paced world we live in is stressful to say the least! That’s why I decided on a Semi-Wordless Wednesday post for today and somehow this quote by author, Roseanne Amberson, just seemed to sum it up perfectly!

Have a wonderful rest of your week everyone – I will be sure to get you caught up on all the fun the cats and I had while Crystal was visiting on my upcoming Caturday post!

As a point of interest, Roseanne Amberson is the author of the book, “Raising Your Cat,” that was published in 1969. Has anyone ever read this book? It would be interesting to see what has, and has not, changed over the years.
