Jazmine

Happy Ginger Cat Appreciation Day!

Hail to the Queen of Ginger – our beautiful diva, Jazmine. I think she wears her title and crown well.

Well, it only took 365 days to get here, but what’s probably the most important day of the year is finally here. What? Oh, sorry, I stand corrected. Jazmine has informed me it is the most important day of the year – Ginger Cat Appreciation Day – and she’s also informed me every day should be Ginger Cat Appreciation Day.

Honestly, I can’t say that I disagree. Just look at the face…what’s not to love every day of the year? I’m so in love as a matter of fact that my next book project is about ginger cats. So, let’s see some ginger cat love today. How many of you have, or had a ginger cat? What were their names? Did they have any funny habits or do you have a favorite memory? Please feel free to share in the comments.

Jazmine also says to remind you she has her own Orange Crush Ginger Cat Love page on Facebook and Instagram. You can check her out here on Facebook and here on Instagram.

Orange Crush Ginger Cat Love for Valentine’s Day

Deb and her ultimate ginger diva, Jazmine.

February is the month of love, and one of the things I love best of all is cats, all cats. But there’s just something extra-special about ginger and orange cats, so I decided to do something about it (along with help from our one and only ginger diva, Jazmine). Read more

Ten Great Reasons to Celebrate Jazmine for Her 7th Birthday

Then and now. Our Jazmine has matured into such a beautiful adult cat.

Seven years. Our precious, beautiful, and loving ginger baby, Jazmine, is seven years old today. When Dan and I first came upon her at Global Pet Expo in March of 2014 at the Imperial Cat booth as a rescue kitten up for adoption, there was an initial internal struggle of “do we,” or “don’t we,” despite her melting our hearts instantly upon looking at her sweet face. It wasn’t so much because we didn’t want to, it was more a matter of me specifically. We had recently lost our beloved Ragdoll, Jazz, in 2013 and I didn’t know if I was mentally ready for another cat in my life or acclimating it to our seven other residing cats in an already fragile cat dynamic, no matter how ridiculously adorable this kitten was.

Shadow’s One Month Anniversary

Shadow has officially been with us for one month!

So, our little black cat, the one who showed up unexpectedly at our house the morning of November 8th has been with us officially one month, today. We named him Shadow, a name perfectly suited for him, as he tends to lurk in the shadows of our house, blending into our counters, furniture, and more. He also likes to shadow the other cats, trying to make friends as only an energetic 6-month-old young cat will do, which they don’t find quite as endearing as I do. Especially Jazmine. Read more

Me and My Shadow – An Unexpected Black Cat Rescue Story

My seven cats on any given morning of the week, circling like hungry sharks as they wait for breakfast.

Rain or shine, weekday, weekend, holiday or not, my get-out-of-bed morning routine is set-your-clock-to-the-minute established to be 5:30 a.m. My cats insist on it. Friday, November 8th was no exception. It starts with an unnecessary preamble of meows and paw pats to my face to get me out of bed, just in case, despite years of dedicated servitude, I might forget and sleep in until 5:35 a.m. I begin the routine by making the rounds scooping the numerous litter boxes, promptly followed by the feeding process – freshwater and filling seven bowls with assorted individual meal requirements for my seven cats. Seven cats in case you didn’t catch that. Read more
