Happy 7th Birthday, Kizmet, and Happy 4th of July!

Happy 7th birthday to Kizmet!

Not every cat can share the same birthday as America without getting lost in the hoopla, but our Kizmet can because he’s truly one cool cat! Kizmet came into our lives in November of 2012 after I saw him in an adoption cage at Pet Supermarket and it was love at first sight. He always beat to his own drum, and as he celebrates his 7th birthday, he remains a very unique cat.   Read more

Getting Ready for the CWA Conference, it’s National Pet Month, and There’s a Stray Cat in My Yard!

My goodness… I can’t believe I haven’t posted something since Easter! What this tells me is a reality that I’ve been having a hard time coming to grips with, but the glaring truth nonetheless: I’m not Super-Woman and I’m literally incapable of managing an extremely demanding full-time day job, my more than full-time position of president of the Cat Writers’ Association, which includes coordinating a 25th anniversary conference and awards banquet, my home and personal life, and a blogging/writing career in the 24 hours a day I’m given.

This Cat’s Got My Back…Literally…

I’m at work all week long, but on evenings and weekends, I spend a good amount of my time at my computer. Kizmet is my best-friend buddy and prefers I spend time with him. Rather than wait for me to wrap up the day to go sit on the couch for the rest of the night, he’s ingeniously figured out his own way of being next to me. And when I say next to me, I mean literally next to me. Read more

Happy 5th Birthday Kizmet, and Happy Birthday America!

Happy Birthday to our 4th of July baby!

Today is a very special day. Not only is it America’s birthday, it’s also our Kizmet’s 5th birthday! I came upon Kizmet when he was about 5 months old in 2012. I saw him in an adoption cage at Pet Supermarket and it was love at first sight – I knew he belonged in our family, Dan wholeheartedly agreed, and the rest is history. From nearly the moment he came into our lives, he had the wise and kind temperament of an old soul. He’s also an odd duck and absolutely beats to the march of his own drum. Read more
