The Love Languages of Cats: Caster

The Love Languages of Cats: Caster

The Love Languages of Cats: Caster In honor of Valentine’s Day, we are talking “The Love Languages of Cats” on the blog this month. Unfortunately, many people don’t see cats as loving animals, but I’ve grown to realize this is just because they haven’t learned to understand a cat’s love language yet! We hope to shed some light on the many different ways cats may express their love by sharing about how the six crazy cats in our home express theirs....

Operation Catification: Cat Wall Additions!

Cat Wall Additions! Watching my kitty-cat gang run, play, climb, and goof off is one of my favorite things. Bobby and I actively play with the cats on a regular basis, but we also enjoy just sitting back and watching them entertain themselves and each other. That’s why when Bobby asked me what I wanted for Christmas, I told him that I didn’t want anything for myself, that I wanted to get some additions to our Cat Wall instead! A win-win....

Happy 4th Birthday, Caster!

Happy 4th Birthday, Caster! Today is one of my favorite days! It is the 3rd anniversary of the fateful day I found our dear Caster in the woods behind our old apartment.

Caught Red Handed

Caster in the Cabinets - Caught Red Handed

Caught Red Handed Because Caster and Sampson are known to habitually break into the kitchen cabinets to steal food, we have child-proofed the cabinets. A couple days ago I was browsing our snack cabinet, walked away for 15 seconds without latching it, and I came back to this… Caught red handed pawed. Lesson learned: ALWAYS latch the cabinets, even if I will be right back....

Caster’s Big Performance

Caster’s Big Performance Okay, guys. I’ve got a surprise for you. I’ve been working really hard on it. Late nights chewing on guitar strings practicing, harassing watching Dad as he practices, diligent hours spent rough-housing studying… you know the drill. Anyway, I hope you enjoy it. Not to toot my own horn or anything, but I think I gave the performance of a lifetime. What do you think?...
