Happy Anniversary to Sampson & Astrid!

Sampson & Astrid's Wedding - BlogPaws

Happy Anniversary to Sampson & Astrid! One of the very best things about blogging is making friends with people who share the same passions as you do. When I started blogging 4 years ago, I had no idea that such a warm and welcoming community of fellow cat bloggers existed. Today, I’d have to say that some of the people and friends that I’ve made through my blog are some of the best friends that I have. One of those...

12 Reasons to Adopt a Shelter Cat

Adopt-a-Shelter-Cat Month: 12 Reasons to Adopt a Shelter Cat! June is here, which means it is officially Adopt-a-Shelter-Cat Month! Did you know that over 3 million cats enter animal shelters in the United States EVERY YEAR?! Sadly only a little over 1 million of those cats are actually adopted. That means there are TONS of cats waiting in shelters for their furever home and family. With all 6 of our kitties being rescues (either adopted from a rescue or off...

Does Anyone Else Have a Bathroom Audience?

Does Anyone Else Have a Bathroom Audience? Cats in the Bathroom

Does Anyone Else Have a Bathroom Audience? Perhaps this is TMI, but I’m just going to be honest. Whenever I use the restroom, I usually always have a furry audience. Sometimes 1 cat, sometimes 2, sometimes a mixture of cats and dogs… Sometimes I even have one draped across my shoulders (Sampson), one trying to peer into the toilet (Kylo Ren), and one who rubs his head on my feet continuously (Caster). Sure, I could close the door, but what...

Panleukopenia: The #1 Cause of Feline Cerebellar Hypoplasia

Panleukopenia: The #1 Cause of Feline Cerebellar Hypoplasia When people meet Sophie for the first time, the first question they usually ask is something like, “What’s the matter with her legs?”, “Why does she walk funny?”, or “What’s wrong with her?” After I explain that she has cerebellar hypoplasia (CH) and what that means, the next common question asked is, “What causes cerebellar hypoplasia?” While CH can be caused by a few different things, the most common cause is panleukopenia....

We’re on Baby Bird Watch!

We're on Baby Bird Watch: bird's nest with eggs

We’re on Baby Bird Watch! BREAKING NEWS: We are currently on baby bird watch! This last week, we discovered that a bird has built a nest in the wreath on our front door, and she has laid eggs! I’ve only caught quick glimpses of her as she flies out of her nest, but she is brown and white and has brown speckles on her belly. I know absolutely nothing about birds, but after coming across The Birders Report online, I...

Bath Time with Sophie & Sampson | #WobblyWednesday

Bath Time with Sophie & Sampson | #WobblyWednesday

Bath Time with Sophie & Sampson | #WobblyWednesday I just want to say that I have the sweetest kitties ever. Seriously. Okay, now that that’s been said, I’ll get on with it… As you know, Sophie has cerebellar hypoplasia (CH). This means that she is wobbly, and she sometimes has a hard time controlling her head and holding it still. Because of this, bath time or personal hygiene isn’t something that comes easy for her. Thankfully though, she has super sweet...
