Meow Monday – Out of Cat Treats

I fear the day we run out of cat treats. Okay, just kidding, Snuffy is the sweetest cat ever, but due to his facial deformities he can easily look very annoyed. Don’t let that angry face fool you.

Did you say We are Out of Cat Treats

 

Meet our Lollypop Farm Pet of the Week

Chyna
#21534292

Chyna is a 2-year-old female domestic medium hair mix who has come back to Lollypop Farm after a previous adoption through no fault of her own. She’s a shy girl who likes to cuddle once she warms up to you. She’s also kind of freak for curly pipe cleaners and lots of fun to watch! Come meet her at Lollypop Farm!

Meow Monday Christmas Edition

Meow Monday Christmas Edition

It’s December 1st and I’m home decorating the house, so it makes sense to post a few pics of our cats enjoying Christmas. Snuffy is the one who seems to enjoy Christmas the most. As soon as we bring in our fresh-cut tree, and put it up in our living room, that’s where you will find him. He curls up underneath and stays there until we take the tree down.

Meow Monday Christmas Edition

In the bottom right hand picture, Snuffy looks a little annoyed that there are presents blocking his access to the tree. In the opposite picture, Jezebel might have hit the catnip a little too hard and started attacking J-Man’s new Chain Chomp. It just wouldn’t seem like Christmas without our cats enjoying the holiday with us.

Meet Winnie, our Lollypop Farm Pet of the Week. I’m sure she would love a new home for the Holidays!

Winnie

#24257550

Winnie is a 1-year-old female domestic shorthair mix who likes to be petted but is not a fan of being carried around. She is declawed. We think she’ll do best in a home where any children are older since she’s a bit particular about how she’s handled and that can be hard for little ones to cooperate with. Come meet this pretty girl at Lollypop Farm!

Meow Monday – A Boy and His Cat

You hear about a boy and his dog but you don’t hear a lot about a boy and his cat. Why is that? Cats make great pets and companions for children as well as adults. Don’t get me wrong, I love dogs and it would feel strange not to have one, or more. But a cat is just as wonderful a companion as a dog.

A boy and his cat meow monday

Our cat George picked J-Man as his boy as soon as we brought Georgie home. They are the best of friends and J-Man’s life is richer for it. If he has a good day, or a bad day, George is right there with his calm steady gaze always ready to listen to what J-Man might say or to sit there next to him in quiet companionship.

George hates having a closed-door between them and will stand on his hind legs and rattle the doorknob with his front paws until J-Man opens it and let him in. I love how close they are and that they are best buddies. There’s something special about having that close bond with your pet that J-Man will carry with him through the rest of his life and he will be more empathetic to other people and animals because of his friendship with George.
