It’s National Cat Day and if you know me, you know cats are a pretty big part of our family. We have our 19-year-old guy, Snuffy, then George, Jezebel, and Rosie.
George is too smart for his own good and can open doors. Jezebel is great at looking beautiful and complaining if anyone touches her. Rosie is deaf and requires special handling which we refer to as Rosie Rules. All in all they get along for the most part.
We adopted all of them from Lollypop Farm. Both Jezebel and Rosie were foster fails. This year Snuffy will celebrate his 20th Christmas with us. Once the tree is up, he’ll sleep underneath it until we take it down. I think he loves Christmas as much as I do.
If you’re thinking of adding a cat or kitten to your family, think about adopting one from a shelter. You’ll be helping the cat or kitten you adopt and making room for another cat or kitten. If you can’t adopt right now, think about fostering cats or kittens in need. You’ll be giving them a great start and making room in the shelter for more animals. Shelter pets rock!

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.
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.

No, not that Friday the 13th.
Not only is it Friday the 13th, it’s also a full moon! Which has some people freaking out just a little.
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.
