Caturday

The Snow Kitty

picsart_09-08-04.31.58

Hello everyone & happy Saturday! It’s Saturday Caturday 🐱🐱 January can be so challenging. I would go as far to say that it is my least favorite month of the year.

But one way to bring a little joy to the gloomy days is to love on your cat. Or look up funny videos of cats…pictures of other people’s cats. Just anything cat related.

We went out to play in the snow earlier this week and I got some cute pictures of the kids, the cat and the winter snowscape.

Here are a few of my favorite pictures of our friendly snow kitty Shadow.

Can you read the sleep deprivation in my eyes? Shadow is looking great though. He has such gorgeous green eyes💚

I wanted to thank you guys for the wonderful response to my last post, When You Don’t Want to do Christmas Because You Are Broken. There were a lot of kind words and comments and I was happy to share, even though it was a difficult topic to write about.

It’s been pretty quiet here on the blog but I am committed to keep posting. However, due to certain circumstances this will become more of a challenge, especially this May…when I will be especially busy❤ Just a heads up for you guys.

Thanks for being fantastic readers ☺Stay warm and cozy out there!

Cat Treat Shampoo

20170916_084059-1

Stella is a good sport. So sometimes I feel like she needs some treats as a reward for putting up with so much. She spends most of the day in hiding really. Waiting for the time when the kids are napping or away so she can nap in peace wherever she wants.

Anyways. She got some treats this morning. Chomped them down and then proceeded to lick herself all over which I find so funny. Cats eat something delicious then just coat themselves with the flavor so they can savor it all day. It makes me laugh.

Did you say….cat treats?
20170916_083815-1
Why yes, they were delicious.
20170916_083823-1-1
Better lick myself all over so I can remember the deliciousness forever!

You should give me more. I need more.

Sorry Stella I think you’ve had enough for now. More later 🙂

If you’re curious about what kind of treats they were this is the one. Salmon always goes down well. I think they were like $1.

Happy Caturday!

Maybe if I just lay my ears back a little bit everyone will get the picture.

Nope I’m too nervous here. I think I’ll go seek out another hidey spot. Thanks anyways Mom.

This process happens more times in a day than I can count. Brave Stella.

Caturday & Stella’s Story

20170722_102510-1

Happy Caturday! I realize I haven’t properly introduced the 5th member of our family. This is our cat Stella. Really she’s my cat but we all love her. Even my husband who says he dislikes cats.

We adopted Stella 3/11/2015 from a local pet store. She was transferred there from the animal shelter. Stella was labeled as a domestic short hair mixed breed and 3 years old. That makes her 5 years old today.

My husband says he doesn’t like cats. But he loves me. And I love cats. Thus Stella. She adds joy to my life. She is a sweet companion and so understanding and patient with the kids.

I knew she was the cat for us when she stuck her little paw out of her cage and batted playfully at my son. J giggled and I fell in love with this sweet little ball of fur. Our Stella.
