Thanksgiving is over and it’s time to get back to real life. No more pumpkin pie, okay a slice of pumpkin pie and a slice of apple pie, for breakfast and we are back home. We had such a nice relaxing visit with family and it’s a good way to head into the upcoming holiday season.
We brought Snuffy with us again and he continues to surprise us with how great he is on trips. He’s even easier than the dogs. He doesn’t love riding in his big wire crate but once we let him out he was just fine. After hanging with me in the passenger seat watching the world go by he settled down and took a nap between the kids in the back seat. Not bad for an 18-year-old cat on a 7 hour ride.
Once we arrived at my parent’s house, he made himself at home. Their dog Penny wasn’t thrilled since she’s the princess of the house, but they got along fine.
Now that we’re home he’s waiting for the Christmas tree to go up. It’s his favorite time of the year. Once the tree goes you can usually find him curdled up napping under the tree. I guess it’s kind of fitting since we adopted him on December 23, 2000. He’ll always be our Christmas kitty.
Starting today, it’s Fall Fur A Feline at Lollypop Farm!
We adopted this little ball of fluff six years ago. She was brought to Lollypop Farm as a stray and was just two months old. We fostered her and she was a little wild girl. She was incredibly messy too. She finally calmed down and we ended up adopting her. Jezebel was such a beautiful kitten.
She’s still beautiful but definitely a bit of a diva.
One of her favorite snacks is paper. She loves napkins, tissues, and toilet paper. But the paper that truly drives her crazy is the tissue paper you use in gift bags. We can’t put our gift bags until it’s time to open them. Then Jezebel starts circling and acting like your very best friend. All in hopes of eating some paper. Of course, paper isn’t good for cats which makes things a little difficult around here. All the napkins and tissue boxes are up high and we keep the bathroom doors closed. When she is sneaky enough to grab a napkin she runs off with it and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard paper ripping from another room and had to run in and wrestle it away from her. She likes to tear off thin strips and eat it like spaghetti.
She loves to play with crumpled up pieces of paper, like receipts. She treats those like special treasure and carries them around in her mouth.
Recently, she wanted to be in my daughter’s room, but the door was closed. Jezebel ran downstairs and brought up her treasured crumpled up papers and deposited them outside the door as a gift. Then she meowed until my daughter let her in. It was pretty much the cutest thing ever.
Now is the purrfect time for you to adopt a cat or kitten at Lollypop Farm!

Is anyone else making plans for Halloween Pet Safety? Just a few simple steps will help keep your pet safe this Halloween.
1. Trick or Treaters can be super scary.
2. Supervise your pet if they are wearing a costume. Especially if they hate costumes.
3. Keep your pets inside on Halloween.
5. Halloween Candy is for people not for pets. Even a little bit of chocolate is dangerous for dogs. It’s not exactly great for cats either.
We hope you and your pets have a fun and safe Halloween!

Okay, so maybe it was more like Halloween fun for us and not so much for the cats. Although, Snuffy slept right through it. The witches hat in the pet section of Target was hard to resist. We didn’t even attempt to put the hat on Rosie. She’s scary when she’s unhappy.
Does anyone else dress their pets up for Halloween?
