Classic Cat Behaviors that Often Defy Logic!

This is as basic as it gets – give your cat the best creature comforts of home and she’ll somehow find a way around it…

“Cattisms” – those nearly universal behavioral traits our cats have is something I could talk about all day and night if you let me. That’s probably why I enjoyed writing Makin’ Biscuits – Weird Cat Habits and the Even Weirder Habits of the Humans Who Love Them so much – being a cat lover my whole life; I’ve got an endless supply of cattism experience! But, alas, I have laundry to do, and a house to clean, and bills to pay. Time’s a-wastin’ and there are only so many hours in a day! So, rather than focus on all those funny, weird, quirky, and iconic behaviors our cats have, I thought I’d share some of my favorites for today!

Take a peek – I’m sure you’ll recognize your cat in most of these scenarios! Read more

Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day Winners and Concern for Hurricane Irma

Love and kisses from Mr. Jazz for the outpouring of love shown on Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day.

First off, on behalf of Purr Prints of the Heart, I wanted to thank everyone who participated in Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day on August 28. The encompassing circle of love from those sharing memories of their beloved pets was so beautiful and I’m touched beyond words. My angel Jazz, the inspiration for the day, clearly lives on and he would be humbled by the outpouring of love.

I had offered several keepsake giveaway items for the day and I’m pleased to announce the following winners:

1. Carol Bryant of Fidose of Reality has won the Bianca Heart Necklace by My Flowers Forever/Bellabeads.
2. Dianna Keen has won the Rainbow Bridge Sympathy Bracelet from Auntie Angel Designs.
3. JaneA Kelley of Paws and Effect has won the $125 Gift Certificate from Nine Lives Twine.

Thank you again to My Flowers Forever/Bellabeads, Auntie Angel Designs, and Nine Lives Twine for their support and generosity. Congratulations to the winners and peace, love, and blessings to everyone. I’m not certain what the immediate future holds for me right now – Hurricane Irma appears to be heading my way and keeping my family safe and secure is my number one priority.

I continue to send prayers to the victims of Hurricane Harvey and I pray for the safety for everyone in the path of Irma. Take care – I love you all and if I haven’t said it in a while, I want you to know I truly appreciate all the kindness and support you’ve shown over the years.

Purr Print of the Heart’s 2017 Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day Blog Hop and Giveaway Event

My sincere sympathies and blessings to all participating in Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day 2017.

I founded Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day (RBRD) in 2015 in honor of Mr. Jazz, my beautiful Ragdoll cat who I had to help cross to the bridge on August 28, 2013. l already knew losing a pet wasn’t easy. I’ve had to say goodbye countless times in my life – dogs, cats, fish, rabbits, guinea pigs and more – each loss leaving a hole in my heart and a void in my life. But after sharing my experience of losing Jazz and writing his story in the book Purr Prints of the Heart – A Cat’s Tale of Life, Death, and Beyond, I came to a global understanding of just how many people had loved and lost a pet, all going through similar feelings of sadness, anger, loneliness, guilt, denial, depression, etc. that I had.

Bring the Wild of the Outdoors Safely Inside Your House with Cat Trees from Pet Tree Houses!

The cats side of the story: We were just sitting around, well, actually we were just napping around, contemplating how many grueling hours it would be before we would eat again (three meals a day plus snacks…how’s a cat supposed to survive?) when it happened. It being a loud knocking noise on our front door, followed by an even louder thud. Moments later, our male human opened the door and dragged in what our door had apparently hacked up – a HUGE box!!
