For the last installment of the SHEBA® Entrées for Cats review series, I decided to talk about how being a cat owner is a lot like being a parent. Since I AM a parent, I feel qualified to make that statement. Now that we have a child of our own, I have the parenting street cred to get away with the following observations on how having a kid and having a cat are pretty much the same thing....more
“What being a cat owner means to me” can be summed up in a few short sentences. First and foremost it means giving Moon the best possible life I can, and treating him like he is part of the family. That includes feeding him premium cat food, giving him plenty of toys to play, brushing his fur (that smells like baby powder naturally) every day so he doesn't get fur balls, making sure he has lots of cozy places to sleep and giving him my undivided attention whenever he wants it....more
Are you a cat person or a dog person? Or maybe you're an iguana or goat or monkey person. There are lots of animals out there that we gladly take in, am I right? We give them homes and in turn, they provide us with much love. We love them back and make them a part of our families for life. Yes! Many of us can't imagine life without the pattering of paws, even in the middle of the night....more
Jungle Kitty is our cat Luna's nickname - because I'm pretty sure she thinks she's still a wild beastie and that our house is a primordial jungle through which she stalks her prey. Her prey, of course, being us and small inanimate objects like hair ties, LEGOs and Barbie shoes. (Oh and my water glass - she is RELENTLESSLY tipping over water glasses! I have no idea why. Maybe she just likes the water splashing? If someone would care to explain this weird facet of cat behavior to me, I'd be much appreciated.) But one of Luna's favorite things to attack is my foot....more
I have been asked how it came to be that I have a feline staff of four who work with me (notice that I didn’t say for me) on my blog, so today I would like to tell you their stories. Each one is as different as the four personalities they represent. I cannot say that I own them. Each of them found me and I am so lucky that they did! First, of course, I must introduce you to our CEO, Miss Ozzie....more
I was born an animal lover. My mom was an animal lover, and my Grandma was an animal lover. When I was a little girl, we lived way out in the boonies in a trailer in a field across the road from Old Grandma and her fields. If you've ever lived in the country, you know that animals just sort of show up. We always had dogs and cats running around, and my mom liked ducks, so we had a flock of them too....more
By now, you've enjoyed meeting our sweet and feeble old kitty, Tinker. He's 16-1/2 now, and he's been with us since we were newlyweds. Before we had a (gasp!) teenager, before we even had children, we had our first babies--our pets. I know that many of you also learned how to "parent" by owning a pet. Hey, it's not quite as labor-intensive to have a puppy or a kitten as it is to have a newborn, and the stakes aren't quite as high if you fail!...more
Do you like black cats? I've always loved them, and I know I'm not the only one. I even have a book from my graphic designer days called The Black Cat Made Me Buy It!, filled with antique and modern packaging and advertisements featuring black cats. But black cats aren't so popular at animal shelters. In fact, they're by far the least likely cats to be adopted....more
They say that pets often adopt you, rather than the other way around, and our cat experiences definitely validate that theory. Our first cat, Cappuccino, was a declawed Siamese mix that someone in our neighborhood had abandoned when their house was foreclosed. He was hungry and scrawny, with a three-inch stub of a tail. He was also the friendliest, most cuddly cat we had every met in our lives....more
