An Expression of Love for Mother’s Day

Some cats are just irresistible!

Their purrs are good for your health.

Their love is very comforting.

They practice patience.

They show their love in many ways.

And finally, some advice.

Thank you, Mom, for everything.

Mother, May I?

Standard

It is now the month of May. Saw a wish the other day on Facebook for a happy May Day which reminded me of a game we used to play as kids called Mother, May I? That gave me the idea for this week’s blog. Hope you enjoy.

Mother, may I go play with my bird friends?

Mother, may I talk to my friend, Tommy?

Mother, may I have some tuna?

Mother, may I tell the teacher how much I like her?

Mother, may  I be Supercat?

Mother, may I help you make the bed?

Mother, may I sit down?

Mother, may I find a place to cool down?

Mother, may I sharpen my claws?

My, these cats are just full of questions. Maybe the most important one is Mother, may I count on you to protect me?

That’s enough questions for today. See you next week.

The Mickey Mouse Club

Standard

As kittens, Rupert and his brothers and sisters naturally liked to play. There were many things to play with, such as balls, string, yarn, and whatever they could find in the house. Sometimes, it turned out, they played with things they shouldn’t. However, that didn’t stop them. Out of all the things Rupert liked, his favorite became a mouse filled with catnip. He would toss it in the air and then go pounce on it. He had so much fun and would play until he just was too tired to move anymore.

When winter turned to spring and the snow was all gone, the kittens were allowed to go outside and play in the yard. Oh, my, was that a treat! There were all kind of new things to investigate and discover. One day, Rupert was lying down next to his mama just enjoying the sunshine and watching his brothers and sisters. Suddenly, a small creature ran past them and startled Rupert. “What was that?”, asked Rupert. “That’s a real mouse, not a toy one.” said Mama. Rupert was amazed at how fast a real mouse was! He couldn’t wait until he could play with the real thing!

The humans in the house started talking about the days of their growing up and watching the Mickey Mouse Club on TV. Rupert couldn’t quit thinking about that and the real mouse he saw out in the yard. Here was his chance! He decided to join this Mickey Mouse thing so he could play with real mice. However, he became very disappointed.

If My Cat Were President

Standard

My first thought would be that it would be a disaster! However, he seems pretty smart about some things, like getting me to do what he wants me to do. Maybe he could get something done. However, the capital would have to move to Wyoming before he would even consider it.

Sammy, you are now President of the United States.

100_0109

You don’t need to hide. It’s really true!

tired-2

Oh, I can tell that you are REALLY EXCITED about this opportunity.

You’re going to have to give up some of your activities, such as ghost writing for me.

cat-typing

You’ll have to have an office staff

who hopefully won’t play around too much and get their jobs done.

catch-the-virtual-mouse

Then there’s the matter of Congress. Hopefully, some cats will be elected that can do something for the country instead of being so dysfunctional. (Well, maybe not)

What Are We Looking At

You’ll also have to work during the day most of the time and not the middle of the night.

its-not-3-am

Oh, let’s see. You’re going to need to have the Secret Service around you all the time.

cats-in-black

Now that you have your staff, what are you doing to do for the country?

Homes for everyone.

bunk-beds

Plenty of things to play with.

ordering-yarn

Food for everyone.

hare-in-my-pancakes

That’s pretty basic stuff, Sammy. Is there anything you do for us humans?

Oh, I see. You can listen to us and see what we need. That’s very nice.

puss-n-boots

It looks like the interview is over. He’s giving me that knock-it-off look.

Guess we’ll have to wait until the “President” is ready to talk to us again.

Have a wonderful President’s Day on Monday, everyone.

Happy Valentine’s Day to my Cats

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. It’s not only love between a couple, but love and respect for all people and even animals that you cherish. So let’s celebrate this special day with pictures. No words needed in some cases.

How Are the Cats Doing on Their 2017 Resolutions?

Standard

We’re two weeks into the new year. How are you doing with the resolutions you made? Doing pretty good on mine, but let’s check in with some cats to see how they’re doing.

ca43d-beautiful2bface

He wanted to remain adorable and handsome. I think he’ll keep that resolution!

Resourcefulness is the name of the game here. I think this cat is doing a very good job of that.

resolutions

One cat wanted to be helpful by sitting on whatever I was going to pick up, but I think this cat is doing a much better job.

where-was-your-bone-10-minutes-ago

Another cat was going to forgive his enemies. I highly doubt that! Don’t think this cat will forgive anytime soon either.

mad-cat

The next resolution was exercising to stay in shape. A bit destructive, but definitely exercise!

if-it-makes-any-difference-i-caught-the-fly

One cat resolved to be kind to the dog. Looks like that’s going well.

together

Another cat was going to “learn him a book”. Doesn’t look like he’s being very patient about the whole thing.

turn-the-page

Along that same line, one was going to learn or study a new art form. I think he’s nailed it!

being-normal-is-boring

All of the cats resolved to spend more time with their friends.

favorite-show

As if 15 hours isn’t enough, they also all resolved to get more sleep.

cat-hugging-mouse

So far, I think the group has done pretty well with their resolutions. What do you think?

Did You Get a New Kitten for Christmas?

Standard

A new, furry, lovable kitten is always fun, but sometimes that fun wears off when the holidays are over. I’ve always believed that if you’re going to be a pet owner, you need to be a responsible pet owner. It breaks my heart to see animals mistreated because their owners are tired of them. All of us who are animal lovers know how precious these little lives are and that they deserve good care like the rest of our family.

Kind to an Animal

If the animal was a gift that you don’t want anymore, then please find it a home where it can be happy or put it in a no-kill shelter. The shelters are full of pets looking for a forever home. Some people prefer to adopt an older animal rather than getting a young one. An older cat is not as mischievous as a kitten can be nor are they as active.

Adopt a Senior Pet

Of course, who could turn this down?

Adoption

If you’re up for some adventure, you could always adopt a feral cat. It took my Sammy a long time to learn to trust humans, but the patience was worth it. He is the most lovable lap cat now and just gives me so much joy.

Feral Cats

Feral Cats Show Love

No matter which method that new cat arrived, they will return your love many times over.

Happiness Is

Pure Love

First Thing

Through all of this, however, you have to remember one basic fact. No one owns a cat!

No One Owns a Cat

Owned By a Cat
