Caturday: Love

Mini is really good at giving you that adoring look, like you are the most important human on the planet, and there is none greater than you, so why would you pick her up and make her move off of your chair?

I cannot imagine a life without cats!

Caturday: Dear Noel – What Can Cats Eat at Thanksgiving

Dear Noel – I know that my humans are planning a big food celebration next week – they call it Thanksgiving. All they ever give me though is dry kibble. How do I get my human to understand that I can have some leftovers too! – Please help. I am Hungry in Hawaii

Dear Hungry – Many humans do not understand a cat’s diet. We are obligate carnivores, which means we have to have MEAT to live. But fat on the other paw can make us sick. In the wild, we would eat about 3 or 4 mice a day (yum), depending on our size. But remind them that we are little creatures and our calories per day should be limited to our size. And, we are each different, so tell your human to ask your Vet, since I am not a medicine cat and don’t know what is right for you.

You can have many wonderful COOKED lean proteins:

  • 1 ounce of cooked TURKEY white meat
  • Skinless chicken (MY FAVORITE)
  • Liver
  • Lean beef
  • Lamb
  • Cooked eggs
  • Cooked salmon/tuna
  • Canned fish

Don’t forget your veggies and grains:

  • Raw Pumpkin/squash, peas, and cucumber
  • Cooked carrots, broccoli, green beans
  • Mashed sweet potato
  • Cooked oatmeal

And your fruit:

  • Bananas
  • Blueberries
  • Watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew (no seeded)
  • Peeled apples

But remind them that you can not eat the following:

  • NO FAT
  • Garlic
  • Onions
  • Coconut Milk
  • Alcohol
  • Coffee or caffeine
  • Grapes / raisins
  • Seeds
  • RAW fish
  • Bread dough
  • Nuts
  • Chocolate
  • Cooked bones
  • Milk
  • Chives
  • Candy / Gum
  • Artificial sweeteners (Especially XYLITOL)

See this Basic guide 

Enjoy your Thanksgiving and don’t forget to beg for more! – Noel, the Christmas Cat

Caturday: Stella’s New Thing

Stella – The Loner

Stells’s new thing lately is to sneak out of her room, whenever the door is left ajar, which it shouldn’t be and hide under my bed across the hall. (To be honest, I know that V thinks she gets lonely in her private master cat suite and leaves the door open for her to explore until, of course, there is a catfight in the hall.) I think Stella thinks it’s funny to go under the bed until another cat comes to check her out and then she freaks out and runs back into her room, hopefully with no other cats trailing behind. Fur does fly around here sometimes. Stella really likes Sofie and Louise, but not Charles, so they are the only other animals that she wants in her space. Ahh the life with a zoo.

Black and White Sunday: Sketchy Nine

Nine’s behavior has been a bit sketchy lately. Besides spraying everywhere, he has been flying all over the place like a mad man. Definitely, something questionable going on with this Dude.

Monday Mischief: October Review

October was a wild weather month; we went from hot summer-like days to a Halloween freeze. The animals like the cooler weather but not the rainy days. I think they have gotten very used to it being dry day after day.

Special appearance by my new grandcat, Hazel. See if you can spot her?

The cats are playing with the cave/spider crickets (we call them sprikets) that appear out of nowhere as soon as the temperature drops. They are rather mean to them (like pulling off their legs) so I didn’t want to include in the video, but you get the idea.

What kind of mischief did you get into today?
