Penguins 

Sort of a Wordless Wednesday, with Penguins! A couple weeks ago we were in Nebraska visiting our daughter and family. We went to Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo & Aquarium, which is always fun! It’s hard to pick a favorite part of the zoo because it’s pretty amazing, but I think the penguins are my favorite. The kids seem to love watching their antics too. They never hold still so getting a good photo isn’t easy.

   Penguins sure are fun to watch!

It’s amazing how fast these little guys can swim and how graceful they are in the water.


If you ever get the chance to visit Omaha, make sure Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo & Aquarium is on your list of places to visit. It’s such a great place to visit!

King of the Jungle

With rumors all over social media of pumpkin spice everything, we are trying to take advantage of the last couple of weeks of August. I love fall as much as the next girl, but don’t want to see summer end. Snuffy doesn’t either. He wants to enjoy his outdoor adventures for as long as possible.

“I’m king of this jungle!”

Snuffy loves to be outside on his leash exploring the wilderness of our yard. As you can see, he’s surveying his domain. 

If you’re looking to add another feline furriend to your household, celebrate Caturday’s through September 7, at Lollypop Farm.

Happy Birthday Snuffy

I’m feeling a little guilty because I wasn’t home for Snuffy’s Birthday this year, or last year. What kind of crazy cat lady am I? A slacker, that’s what. I’ll make it up to him on his 20th birthday and give him extra snuggles when I get home.

Happy 19th Birthday to the best cat anyone could ever have. We are so lucky we adopted this snorty snuffly little boy at Lollypop Farm all those years ago. He brings us so much joy and we couldn’t love that funny-faces little boy any more than we already do.

Meet Buttercup, our Lollypop Farm Pet of the Week!

Happy Birthday Meow Monday

Yesterday was Jezebel’s 7th birthday. I guess that makes her a senior cat but we aren’t going to mention that fact to her. She’s such a diva.

And next week, Snuffy is going to be 19!

These two birthdays had me wondering how many people celebrate their cat’s birthdays. I went to Google to find out and could only find statistics on people who celebrate their dog’s birthday. Why no cat stats, Google?

I suppose I can see why more people celebrate their dog’s birthday. Most dogs are going to be super excited about the attention and extra special treatment. Cats don’t care. At. All.

But, Jezebel still had her birthday photoshoot even if she hated every minute of it. Because that’s how we roll. Thanks to @samanthabee_sewing for the great pics.

No cats were harmed in the making of these photos, Jezebel’s just a giant floofy drama queen.

Cat Days of Summer

I’ve always been partial to orange cats. Okay, I’ve always been partial to all cats, but I do love orange kitties. Growing up we had a big orange boy named Charlie. He was such a sweetheart.

One of our first cats we had as a family came to us as a stray orange kitten we named Jingle Bells. She was a great cat who loved everyone and especially one of our daughters. Jingle Bells loved to be pushed around the house in a big cardboard box that my daughter decorated and labeled “Cat Car”. Usually, Jingle Bells was wearing various necklaces at the time. She was quite the character.

Now we have our buff orange boy, George. Also, quite the character. He loves to complain when the dogs bark with a chattering meow. They bark, he complains, they bark at him complaining and he complains more. George hates any door being closed and has figured out how to open them. Sometimes he just likes to open them and walk away. He doesn’t even want to be in the room. Sometimes he’s a little to smart for his own good but we love this handsome boy.
