When your cat is more photogenic than you

Life

Ever experienced envy at the fact that no matter how you photograph your pet, no matter what absolutely ridiculous pose they are in, they still manage to look cuter than you? If so, I feel you. I delete basically every selfie, and then turn around and take 100+ photos of my flawless feline child. I can put on makeup, find perfect lighting, try and fix my hair, and take a…

Our Anxious Kitten Update

Life

A while back I posted about our cat, Yuki, who is extremely anxious. It was an undertaking trying to help her out and make the space more comfortable for her. She was peeing in tubs, peeing on rugs, peeing on the floor near the front door, and basically going full tilt crazy, running all around the house, panting, and was always on edge.

(Which is a pretty awesome shelter if you live in the Houston/Katy, TX area!) She was bottle fed as a kitten and was sent back to the shelter from her first home because she didn't get along with other pets and was…

Two years without Fur

Life

This is going to be a really serious post for me, since it's about my old cat Marble. I lost her 2 years ago in October to old age. She was 16 years old.   I still miss her to this day. I think about her a lot and I know that I'll never really be able to replace her in my heart. Though, I do want more cats. I…
