Ohai. This is my Mommeh. Why is she so happy? Because I’m helping her get ready for National Hug Your Cat Day on Thursday. Humans seem to enjoy giving and receiving hugs, so it is our duty to indulge them (at least on this one day). To help everyone get the most out of this special day, I have prepared some tips!

I hope you are having a nice Memorial Day today! Most of the time I’m all about having fun, playing with toys, eating snacks and just generally having an all-around Good Time (especially on long weekends). But today is actually a serious and important day, because it’s a day for us to commemorate the brave men and women who died in service to our country. So let us take a moment to pause and remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice so that we could remain safe and have a nice holiday today.
As long as you do not forget the true meaning of the day, it is still okay to have a good time watching a parade, having a picnic, or just lounging around the house in your pajamas all day. I am wearing my kerchief on account of I am hoping for some barbecue later today and I don’t want to get any sauce on my fur.
What do you have planned for today?
Now that I am getting older, it is harder to keep my girlish figure. And I dearly love my treats! What to do? The solution is simple… reduced calorie treats! But this will only work if the treats are something delicious I would enjoy inside my tummy. And I am very particular about treats. So today I am going to try out these new Lean Treats and report on my findings. Read More »
Did you have a wonderful Mother’s Day yesterday? I did! Do you know why? Because I made something extra-special for my Mommeh. These are some of my craft supplies. I had to wear these denim coveralls so I wouldn’t get my fur dirty. Wait until you see what I made! I am pretty sure that you will be a little bit impressed with me. Read More »
Hola! I’ll bet you were expecting to see DAISY here today! I volunteered because this story is about Cinco de Mayo and I am the party cat. Only now that I’m in the spotlight, I am a little nervous. I forgot what I was going to say! Um, er, well… Oh yeah, about Cinco de Mayo, or as I like to call it, Cinco de Meow. Read More »
Well, my earlier idea to keep Harley occupied with the catnip sardines did not work out exactly the way I had planned, but I have not given up my quest for some peace and tranquility. After all, I am no longer a spring chicken and Harley is getting on my last nerve. But I have hatched a new plan that I think will work! Read More »
Oh, you caught me watching Cat TV! I enjoy looking out the windows and observing the world around me from my home on the edge of the Florida Everglades. But sometimes I worry about the earth… what if something happens to it? Since Earth Day is coming up in just a couple of days, this is a perfect time for each of us to think about ways we can help the earth. Read More »
Lately my maniac brother Harley has been getting on my last nerve! Whenever I am having fun, he always has to ruin my Good Times. So I have hatched a brilliant plan to keep him occupied and out of my fur. Read More »
|Oliver and Dodger think they're brothers. Oliver is our poodle. Dodger is our Spoodle. They are about 10 years old but don't look a dog's year over 6. They've been together since the day/week/ they were born to a breeder in 2002, but their lives with us began in February 2004 when we adopted them - no, won them - from our local SPCA in Ithaca, NY. This is Oliver and Dodger’s blog... or it's my blog about them because they can't type, plus they're too busy trying to catch that comically clever chipmunk. Regardless of who’s in charge here (it’s them), we hope you'll come along for the r-i-d-e and follow the adventures of (amongst other superhero aliases) Skipper and Slouch as they sniff their way around the PetMeds blogosphere!|
