Cats as Teachers and Healers

It’s cold here, and the cats all want to cuddle.  Unfortunately, that means cuddling with me. I have sciatica and arthritis in my hips and knees. When I lie down for the night I spend a bit of time tossing and turning until I get comfortable. I also have to fight cats to be able … Continue reading

Cats and Yoga: It’s a Thing!

I practice yoga, though I used to have a hard time admitting it. Yoga is marketed to upper middle class people who use yoga as a way to let the rest of us to know they’re better than we are because they are healthy and we are not. You know the ones; they wear specially designed yoga … Continue reading

Today is National Feral Cat Day

Today is a day set aside by Alley Cat Allies to talk about the issue of homeless cats and let you know how you can get involved in helping these kitties. Hissy Fit Jones and Little Girl, both 8 years old, were born to feral mothers. Hissy was at the vet yesterday getting annual shots. He also has an … Continue reading

Pet Guardianship: Not All Peaches and Cream

Mommy bloggers want us all to believe that parenting is 24/7 joy and fun. Sadly, so do many pet bloggers. I’m not one of them.  To be honest, some days caring for a fur kid really sucks. Right now I am fuming because I have worked so hard to get the cats upstairs. I have … Continue reading

All Things Cat

Cats are in the news this weekend.  First, Bubba Cat had his turn at the vet, and his bloodwork results were upsetting. He, too, has hyperthyroidism. To be honest, I hadn’t considered hyperthyroidism with Bubba because he hasn’t been as ravenous as Junior was when first diagnosed. But he does show other symptoms, such as weight … Continue reading

Cat Stuff

We have a new vet! I’m happy to have found a vet clinic that meets the needs of my family. They’re friendly, caring folks and knowledgeable. I am relieved. This past Saturday June Buggie gave them a try. He had an annual exam and vaccinations to include blood work to test his thyroid level. He … Continue reading

June Buggie and Me: #PurrfectTogether

(This post is sponsored by Meow Mix Bistros)   June Buggie is not an easy cat to love. In that respect, we are perfect for each other. We are both rather crotchety as we age together. Junior (that’s his given name) and Bubba came to live with me around 15 years ago after a co-worker … Continue reading

The Neverending War on Homeless Cats

I am a fan of Gwen Cooper, the author of the books about Homer the blind wonder cat. Homer has moved on from this realm, but Gwen continues to write about cats and topics of importance to cat lovers. This week Gwen sent out an email to her readers alerting us to a book being hawked … Continue reading

Vets: Why Don’t They Treat Pets Like Family?

I am LIVID! This morning I took June Buggie to his new vet for a follow-up visit for his thyroid. When I called to make the appointment, I told them what it was for. I explained he had not had this service with their clinic before. I was given no instructions regarding prepping for the … Continue reading
