Kylo Ren Goes on His First Urban Adventure

Kylo Ren Goes on His First Urban Adventure - Coleman Hill

Kylo Ren Goes on His First Urban Adventure Kylo Ren is our king adventure cat. He loves being out and about, following a hiking trail or side walk, cruising down the river in a canoe, kayak, or even a boat, and exploring nearby parks. He thrives on these outdoorsy adventures. Urban adventures though? Not so much. Too many people, too much commotion. We are trying to change that though. Our hope is that Kylo will eventually be our go-everywhere adventure...

Kylo Ren Adventure Cat

Happy 2nd Birthday, Kylo Ren! While Valentine’s Day may be the holiday that most people are celebrating today, there’s an even bigger one going on… KYLO REN’S BIRTHDAY!!! Two year ago today, Bobby gave me the best Valentine’s Day gift ever — Kylo! I didn’t even see it coming. It was a wonderful surprise, and Valentine’s Day will never be the same.

Living with a CH Cat: How to Deal with the Heart Attacks

Living with a CH Cat: How to Deal with the Heart Attacks

Living with a CH Cat: How to Deal with the Heart Attacks A few months ago, I got a call from a fellow cat blogger, Jeanne from Random Felines. Jeanne’s cat, Chanel, has a head tilt and balance issues caused by an ear infection, and she wanted to know how I dealt with the heart attacks. Living with a cat with cerebellar hypoplasia, I knew exactly what she meant by “heart attacks”. You know, that feeling when your heart completely...

5 Reasons Red Roof Inn is Our Top Choice for Pet-Friendly Hotel Stays - Kylo Ren Adventure Cat

5 Reasons Red Roof Inn is Our Top Choice for Pet-Friendly Hotel Stays Whenever my husband and I travel, we usually bring along the KCC Adventure Team. Traveling with the cats can be a lot of fun, but it can also be pretty involved and has the potential to be stressful. To make sure our trips go off without a hitch, we always plan well and are sure to pack everything we could possibly need. The first step in our...

Sophie's Got Some New STICK Moves | #WobblyWednesday

Sophie’s Got Some New STICK Moves | #WobblyWednesday Besides her daddy, Sophie’s most favoritest thing in the world is STICK (the all caps signify her enthusiasm). STICK is what we call all of her wand toys. Sophie has quite a collection: feathery sticks, sticks with little toys on the end, ribbon sticks, retractable sticks, you name it. But hands down, her favorite sticks are the broken ones…. you know, the ones that used to have toys on the end or...

Kylo Ren Explores Rose Hill Cemetery

Kylo Ren Explores Rose Hill Cemetery

Kylo Ren Explores Rose Hill Cemetery One of Kylo Ren’s most favorite places to visit is Rose Hill Cemetery. A cemetery may seem like an odd place to adventure with your cat, but there are a few reasons why it is a perfect adventure cat destination. Cemeteries are usually pretty quiet – minimal people, cars, sounds, etc. to spook your kitty. If you have an old, historic cemetery in your town, they can actually be quite beautiful and scenic. Plus,...

A #WobblyWednesday Update with Radagast the Orange

A #WobblyWednesday Update with Radagast the Orange

A #WobblyWednesday Update with Radagast the Orange It’s been about seven months since the ever-so-sweet and handsome Radagast joined our family. He has fit right in, and now I can’t imagine our family without him. I’m not the only one who feels that way either, thankfully. The rest of the KCC Gang are big Raddy fans too. He is friend to all! Even Delilah, who would prefer to be an only cat, has taken to Raddy. And Kylo Ren, who...

Snow Day with the KCC Adventure Team!

Snow Day with the KCC Adventure Team!

Snow Day with the KCC Adventure Team! Last week, we experienced a rare treat for Georgia… SNOW! It’s been four years since the last snow day when Sophie went sledding. This time we didn’t get enough snow for sledding, and it all melted by the early afternoon, but the KCC Adventure Team did get out into the snow for a few minutes. It was Kylo’s first snow day! And probably his last… he was not a fan. Needless to say,...

The KCC Adventure Team in Asheville: The American Museum of the House Cat

The KCC Adventure Team in Asheville: The American Museum of the House Cat If you read last Monday’s post, you know that we made a pitstop at the Catman2 Shelter on our way to Asheville a few weeks ago. After we finished up at the shelter, we made a second stop before finishing the drive. We stopped at the American Museum of the House Cat! The American Museum of the House Cat is a unique museum full of Dr. Harold...

Cerebellar Hypoplasia Cats and Anesthesia: Is it Safe?

Cerebellar Hypoplasia Cats & Anesthesia: Is it Safe?

Cerebellar Hypoplasia Cats and Anesthesia: Is it Safe? The topic of anesthesia and cats with cerebellar hypoplasia is one that I’ve seen come up time and time again. Naturally, CH cat parents are usually worried about having their cat undergo surgery and anesthesia. After all, a kitty with cerebellar hypoplasia already has a brain that doesn’t function 100%. Can anesthesia make their condition worse? Can a CH cat handle anesthesia? Is it safe? The short answer is YES – anesthesia...
