Spring Meow Monday

This weekend we finally had a good taste of spring weather and Snuffy was happy to go outside.

Snuffy, a black and white cat, on a leash enjoying the outside.

He loves to explore outside while we safely supervise him on his leash. He snorts and snorts the whole time. We’re hoping for more spring weather so he can get out and explore even more.

Have you ever tried a leash on your cat? We started with Snuffy when he was just a kitten and he’s never been outside without his leash and harness. He knows what it means when we pull them out of the drawer. He comes running and wiggles so much from excitement we can barely get the harness on. Once outside, Snuffy walks us and we just follow along behind him.

If you’re interested in leash training your cat or kitten, you can pick up a leash and harness specifically made for cats at your local pet store or online. If you’re local to the Rochester, NY area, you can purchase one at the Lollypop Shop inside Lollypop Farm in Fairport, NY.

Leash and harness for cats

Your purchases directly help the animals at Lollypop Farm and it’s Snuffy’s favorite place to go back and visit.

National Spinach Day

Did you know that today is National Spinach Day?

Spinach and lemons on a counter

It seems to be one of those vegetables people either love or they loath. I’m definitely in the love spinach camp.

Spinach is super good for you too.

It’s a great source of

  • Iron
  • Calcium
  • Magnesium
  • Potassium
  • Protein
    Vitamin A
  • Popeye wasn’t wrong, guys.
  • Spinach salad is one of my favorite quick meals for a busy night. My favorite spinach recipe has to be spinach casserole. Seriously, if you like spinach, you have to try it. It’s one of my most popular pins on Pinterest. It’s also a great recipe if you’re on a low-carb or keto diet.

    Spinach casserole

    If you try it, let me know what you think.

    Happy National Spinach Day!

    Where’s Spring Meow Monday

    Okay, where’s spring? I know it’s only the last week of March, but we need spring. I need mud season to be over too. I want green grass and warm sunshine.

    I’ve noticed the cats enjoying our later sunsets and soaking up the rays of sunshine whenever they can find them. Rochester, New York isn’t exactly known for its sunshine.

    Cat enjoying the sunshine

    Jezebel looks like she’s deep in thought as she enjoyed some sunshine yesterday afternoon. I’m fairly certain her deep thoughts run along the lines of “I’m so beautiful” or, “Look, but don’t touch”.

    Hoping spring arrives soon!

    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.

    Meet Monkey, our Lollypop Farm Pet of the Week.

    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.

    Pinky and the brain try to take over the world

    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. Stop by Lollypop Farm to meet Dahlia today! Learn more: www.lollypop.org/cats
