My Cat Brings Me Hearts and Valentine’s Gift Ideas

Zee is precious in every way – even his nose is heart shaped!

With Valentine’s Day around the corner, it got me to thinking of hearts. The heart is a universal symbol of love and in our house, that translates to our kitties, too. Especially for our sweet Zee who takes it to the extreme. He likes to show his love for Dan and me by bringing us dead gifts. Being that he’s an indoor cat, rather than the unsavory variety, such as a dead mouse or bird, he brings us dead toys. In particular, a stuffed plush heart that he will drop at strategic places throughout the house to show his love. Read more

Three Super Bowls for Your Cat

As if Angry Bird isn’t angry enough…now he has to deal with these less than super feeding bowls…

Hey everyone! We’re giving our human a break today and sharing some of our own thoughts. We heard today is the Super Bowl and all we can say is hooray! We’ve got some super bowls at our house and it’s about time we got a whole day to meow about them! Bowls mean food to us and eating is one of our all-time favorite things to do. The problem – while our human did mean well – you know, feeding us healthy food on a regular basis and all, years ago she was doing it using stainless steel bowls that were anything but super. She wasn’t a cat expert back then and didn’t realize they weren’t the best option for our health. Read more

When it Comes to Blending In, Cats are Masters of Disguise!

Not only do Peanut, Mia, and Rolz look alike at first glance, but when they’re on top of a leopard bedspread, they look like they could be pillows instead of cats!

I don’t know about you, but whenever I leave the house, I do a cat “head-count.” With my vision still blurry, this presents even more of a challenge than normal when I go to work in the morning, as my cats are quite the masters of disguise and sometimes they don’t cooperate when I call them! Usually, I can find most of them rather quickly, as they tend to hang out in the same spot, but sometimes one of them will be in a place that just eludes me. Read more

An Eye Opening Experience – Learning to Sleep Like a Cat

A cat makes it seem so simple to sleep in an upright position…but like Zoey here, don’t think just because my eyes are closed that I’m asleep! At least not while I’m on the couch in an uncomfortable position!

As many of you know, l had emergency laser surgery to repair a tear in my left retina on Friday, January 5. It’s been a scary ordeal – I still have significant blurriness and floaters in my eye, which make it quite hard to see much of anything. I was also given doctor’s orders to sleep sitting up, which I have to say is nearly impossible. Read more

Starting the New Year with My Eyes Not Wide Open

While the piecework I was helping with for our military contract was very laborious and exhausting, the doctor said it did not cause my eye condition. It’s something that is more common as we age, in my case, it was more severe than for others.

We’ve got a big military contract due where I work with a tight deadline of January 9th to complete the project looming in front of me. I’ve been working extremely long hours, assisting with quite heavy and laborious piecework to help out and when I get home I’ve been exhausted. That’s why when I started to experience some blurred vision, I attributed it to being tired. Read more
