3 Things NOT to Say to a Special Needs Pet Parent

3 Things NOT to Say to a Special Needs Pet Parent

3 Things NOT to Say to a Special Needs Pet Parent As a “mom” to special needs cats, I am pretty used to the myriad of reactions I get from people when they see or hear about Sophie or Sassy. Some are positive and excited, some are inquisitive and interested, some are confused and unsure, and some are just downright rude. Believe me, I’ve heard it all. I’m aware that many people may not realize they are being rude when they...

Sophie Visits the Nursing Home

Sophie Visits the Nursing Home | #WobblyWednesday Happy New Year! Wow, it has been a while since we posted. We sure have missed blogging and visiting our furiends. Unfortunately my work life was taking up so much time that blogging fell to the back burner. I’ve made some changes though, and my biggest resolution for 2017 is to get back into blogging regularly. Be prepared to see more of us this year! What better way to kick off our 2017 blogging...

Tweak the Wobbly Cat

Meet Tweak the Wobbly Cat! | #WobblyWednesday Every now and then, Sophie and I take a trip over to PetSmart on Sunday afternoon to visit Sophie’s foster mom and to meet all of the adoptable kitties. This is obviously dangerous (how do you think we wound up with 6 cats?!). So dangerous, that my husband won’t usually go with me because he knows that if we’re both there, we are more likely to bring another cat home. See, he’s almost as...

Fly Free, Little Milton

Fly Free, Little Milton - If love could have saved you...

Fly Free, Little Milton Dear Milton, I only knew you for 6 days, but in that short time, I had given you my heart. That was my promise to you, after all. I wanted you to know what it was to have a family that loved you completely and whole-heartedly. I pray that when you drifted away in my arms, you knew that. You were so small, so sweet, so gentle. You deserved so much more than the hand you were...

Welcome Home, Milton | #WobblyWednesday

Milton

Welcome Home, Milton | #WobblyWednesday Dear Milton, I knew the moment your foster mom (who was also Sophie’s foster mom) texted me a picture of you a few weeks ago with the message, “We have a kitten with Down Syndrome” that you would eventually join our family. I think Rebecca knew exactly what she was doing when she sent me that message 😉 . Here we are three weeks later, and you are home with us. You have been here...

#WobblyWednesday is Here and So is Oreo!

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve had a #WobblyWednesday guest, but I think I’m making up for my hiatus by having a super special furiend here with me today! I’m telling you guys, this cat is super cool. He’s wobbly like I am (but for different reasons), and he also has something in common with my sisfur Sassy! When I came across his photos on Instagram, I just knew that I wanted to be friends and share his story! ...

The Ins & Outs of FIV

The Ins & Outs of FIV

The Ins & Outs of FIV FIV – three letters that, when strung together, can have devastating consequences for a cat. Though a serious disease, FIV is unfortunately misunderstood more often than not. Because of common misconceptions, many FIV+ cats are overlooked at the shelters and unnecessarily euthanized. FIV is NOT the death sentence that so many believe it to be – an FIV+ cat can actually live a normal and healthy life. Please read on to learn more… What is FIV? Feline Immunodeficiency...
