Keeping Your Cat Calm During the Holidays

The largest part of the holiday season is over with two more major days of celebrating to come. We've read all over social media about humans having difficulty managing the stress during this time of the year, but what about our pets?

The holidays can be a difficult or stressful time for our felines.

Catmas Wishes - Modern Cat Furniture - Catit

We are so excited to share our favorite pieces of furniture we received for the holidays! We've always had the traditional cat trees in our home, but Mom Paula wants something more stylish and modern, while we want something functional and comfortable.

Mom Paula has fallen in love with the Vesper™ Furniture from Catit®. We've shared posts about the Vesper Minou and the Vesper Box Large in the pasts and these pieces of furniture blend in well with our home decor and still look great. When she traveled to Global Pet Expo this past year, she was introduced to the Vesper Cubos.

Catmas Wishes - A Conversation with Coryelle

Have you ever wondered what your fur child is thinking or trying to tell you? Do you wish you could communicate with your feline (or other pet)?

We've shared some posts in the past about our conversations with Coryelle Kramer, who is a Seer, Healer, and Animal Communicator. We've been amazed at the insight she's been able to share with us, so we thought we'd let her tell us about talking with the animals.

Catmas Wishes - Getting That Perfect Photo

It's the holiday season and people all over the world are posting photos of their furry family members on social media and sending holiday cards with their cats or dogs featured! I'm always amazed how well some of these photographs turn out, especially with cats! I can easily take 100 photos and only have one that will be clear with the girls facing the camera. Do you ever have this problem? How do you get those photos that can be shared around the world and kept for those precious memories?

I'll be the first to admit that I'm not a professional photographer. There are times my photos turn out beautifully and others where they just aren't quite right. Take the photo above - It's a cute photo of the girls, but the only thing really in focus in the box and the Cuddle Clones® Plush Clone Brulee on the bottom left. What were some thing I could have done differently?

Catmas Wishes - Eating Neatly and Resting Comfortably: Messy Cats™

Do you have a messy cat, especially when she eats? We definitely do. Truffle is usually pretty neat when she eats because she bites into her food, but Brulee picks up her food with her tongue and tends to push her food on the floor. We've used mats in the past, but sometimes Brulee won't get on the mat to eat her food. We've found something that works for us.

Good morning! We've been busy taking care of Mom Paula after her knee surgery. We're happy to report that she is progressing well. We've stayed near her and even slept on her during her recuperation.

Catmas Wishes - Stylish and Functional Dining

There are so many bowls to choose from for our feline friends. There are bowls of bright colors and designs, elevated bowls, whisker stress free bowls, and bowls that are made of plastic, glass, ceramic, and stainless steel. How does the modern cat owner choose the best bowl for her fabulous feline?

We've tried almost type of every bowl out there and prefer stainless steel that has a wider rim to help us avoid whisker stress.

Choosing a Pet Sitter

It's the holiday season which usually means you will travel to visit family and friends. There are more people who are beginning to take their cats with them when they travel, but what do you do if your cats must remain home alone? Unfortunately, many people believe that cats can fend for themselves and don't need anyone to watch them. What happens if your cat becomes ill, the heat/AC malfunctions, she needs to be groomed, or given medication?

It's imperative to find someone who is qualified to take care of my girls when I'm away

I admit I was one of those people who thought cats were independent enough and could be left alone for a few days as long as there was plenty of water and food left out.

We hope everyone is staying warm and dry during this cold wave that's hit the South. Our friends about an hour up the road are getting snow today. We're scheduled to get rain with some possible sleet. We're staying indoors where it's warm and dry.

Catmas Wishes - Feeding Finicky Felines

Anyone who's been owned by a feline knows how finicky cats can be at times. Some cats only like a certain flavor while others are only happy with a particular texture. Adding to this finickiness are cats with specific dietary requirements. What is a cat owner to do?

We believe if you look up the word "finicky" in the dictionary, you'll see a photo of a cat! We're sure most people who are owned by felines have experience with their feline companion turning up her nose at food she's given. Some experts believe finicky eaters are made (by humans), not born. Humans tend to try and please their fur children and sometimes create picky food critics.
