Cat Toys

Play is an important part of your cat’s life. It helps keep indoor cats healthy and happy. They get exercise and it helps keep your pet from getting bored and finding less appropriate outlets to expend their energy.

We go through a lot of cat toys at our house and some of them don’t last very long. One of the our favorite cat toys is the Kong Curlz Teaser Cat Toy.

Kong Curlz wand toy for cats

This toy has lasted several years of almost daily cat play. It may have been sucked up into the vacuum cleaner a few times and still no worse for wear. Just pull it back out and it bounces right back into shape. The Curlz part of the toy is made from a super strong webbing that never loses shape or splits. The feathers on the end also help entice your cat to play.

If you’re looking for a new toy for your pet, or a gift for the pet parent in your life, stop by the Lollypop Shop at Lollypop Farm. They have lots of great pet products and unique gift items. All the proceeds go back to Lollypop Farm to help animals in need.

Friday the 13th

Meme of Jason from Friday the 13th which reads Mike mike mike what day is it? Oh yeah

No, not that Friday the 13th.

Cat reading newspaper meme which reads maybe I should buy a hockey mask

Not only is it Friday the 13th, it’s also a full moon! Which has some people freaking out just a little.

Meme from office space which reads if we could just get through the full moon on Friday the 13th without a zombie apocalypse, ya, that would be great

If you have a fear of Friday the 13th, it’s called paraskevidekatriaphobia. If you have a fear of the moon, it’s called selenophobia. If you have a fear of both is it called selenoparaskevidekatriaphobia?

Here’s hoping the Full Moon Friday the 13th doesn’t mean a zombie apocalypse. Seems like a good night to stay inside watching Hocus Pocus.

Hocus Pocus - Dani and max where she says it’s a full moon tonight. The weirdos are out.

National Dog Day Meow Monday

The nerve of National Dog Day falling on Meow Monday. Don’t they know that cats don’t like to share the spotlight?

Our two little dogs don’t know it’s National Dog Day which is probably a good thing because I didn’t get them anything. I didn’t even realize it was National Dog Day until I saw dog pictures all over Facebook. Oops, bad dog mom.

These are our two little dogs, Molly and Perry. Molly’s the boss and Perry is the yes man.

Our National Dog Day celebrations is going to be pretty low-key. They’ll enjoy time napping on their beds, Molly will go outside and bark at nothing, and Perry will spin in circles because that’s how he rolls. I’ll hand feed Perry the chewy bits in his food bowl because if I don’t Molly will eat them first. That’s how she thinks being the boss works, and since he’s the yes man, he lets her. Then he looks super sad because all the best chewy bits are gone and he has to eat the crappy kibble.

How are you planning to celebrate National Dog Day?

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!
