Anti-Anxiety Cat Napping Music Swaying

After a long weekend of embracing my inner cat (sleeping, napping, and sleeping some more), it is back to the work week and being human which consists of wearing form fitting clothes, a for-real bra, and make-up.  Every part of me thinks that the weekend went by too quickly and my inner cat still wants… Continue reading Anti-Anxiety Cat Napping Music Swaying

Happy Birthday Hunter!~

Hunter Mahoney Today is my youngest cat’s birthday.  He is seven.  It’s hard to believe that he has been in my life for seven years at this point.  I remember the day I brought him home from the vet (that is where I adopted him) and he was such a small, little baby kitten.  I… Continue reading Happy Birthday Hunter!~

Cat Tales: A Game of Cat and Mouse

Today, it is the trivial things that made my morning. And yes, those little things involve my cats.  I cannot help that my cats are my world, and they bring me such divine happiness and contentment. Much like every morning, this morning I am laying in bed, groggy, and being well, cat like, not wanting… Continue reading Cat Tales: A Game of Cat and Mouse
