George does love his catnip banana and Rosie has no concept of personal space at all.

Let’s celebrate National Awkward Moments Day by focusing on the awkward moments of our pets instead of our own awkward moments. I can focus on my own the rest of the year.

National If Pets Had Thumbs Day Meow Monday

Yesterday was National If Pets Had Thumbs Day. I’m not really sure how you celebrate, or who came up with such a day, but thought you should know.

tabby cat named George

I guess we are supposed to imagine what our pets would do if they have thumbs. Since George can already open doors and shop online, I imagine he’d take over the world if he had thumbs.

What do you think your pet would do if they had thumbs?

Now, Dahlia our Lollypop Farm Pet of the Week doesn’t look like she’d tie and take over the world if she had thumbs, but she does look every sweet.

Tortoiseshell cat

Dahlia is a lovely 2-year-old cat who is looking for a new home. She came to Lollypop Farm after being transferred from another shelter. Dahlia has a unique tortoiseshell coat, and a sweet personality! She would love to welcome spring with you in a home where she can watch birds out of the window.

Meow Monday Mystery

Last week we spent a few days back home in Massachusetts celebrating my dad’s 90th birthday. Which is pretty darn amazing.

We arrived home to find an blue envelope from Chewy.com and it was addressed to George Burton.

This is George Burton.

This is what was in the package.

Yes, a catnip banana. Who knew George was pining for a catnip banana? I sure didn’t.

Now we are all wondering who sent a catnip banana to George or did he figure out how to shop online?

He does know how to do this, soooo, maybe?

The case of the catnip banana is a big mystery. I’ve never ordered anything from Chewy.com before. I manage the pet gift shop in our local humane society and I buy all my pet products there. Also, I can’t see myself ordering a catnip banana. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but I tend towards more cute pet toys.

I will say, it was a big hit, so there’s that anyway.

National Love Your Pet Day

Everyday should be Love Your Pet Day, but a special day isn’t a bad thing.

Snuffy spent the day in the car driving back from our family vacation in Massachusetts.

Black and white cat

Snuffy does love to go on vacation with us. He’s great in the car for the 7 plus hour drive and loves to have new people pay him all kinds of attention. As long as he has his food and some attention, he’s a happy boy.

Meet Butterscotch, our Lollypop Farm Pet of the Week.

Meow Monday and More Snow

All our snow from the last polar vortex melted and everything is looking brown and gray. But, more snow is in the forecast for this week. Not that I’m a huge fan of snow, but if it can’t be spring then a little snow on the ground makes it prettier.

If you’re looking for a way to keep warm this week, how about adopting a new furriend from Lollypop Farm.

Adoption special with a dog, cat, and a rabbit

Rosie agrees it’s the purrfect time to adopt.

Actually, she just likes to sit in boxes, but still, go adopt!
