Feline Friday #60 – To Cuddle or Not to Cuddle?

There are fur babies who cuddle with their humans any chance they get, there are lap cats and dogs, and there are pets who would sooner claw you than rest with you. So I'm wondering, what are your babies like? Do you have only cuddlers, pets who never want to cuddle, or a mix of both? With my kitties, there's quite a variety!

Feline Friday #59 – The Wonderful Sounds Kitties Make!

I absolutely love the sound of my kitties running about the house, dashing after various toys, playing with one another, and meowing all the while. Those are such wonderful noises, ones that always brighten my day and make life better. This is a bit of a sad story, but I didn't realize how much I'd miss those noises until my family and I lost Romeo, our senior cat of 17 years.

Now that we've entered a brand new year, many of us acknowledge that 2020 wasn't exactly the best year, and want this one to be a much brighter, more positive one. And I'm here to tell you we can absolutely make that happen. We're capable of following our dreams, of making the seemingly impossible happen. So, without a doubt, we can come back from the dark, depressing time that was 2020. Let's work alongside one another to ensure 2021 is a better year for all of us. We can do it together!

Feline Friday #58 – Kitties in a New Year!

Yay, it's a new year! We've finally done away with 2020, and have moved into a new, hopefully much better year. I know there's still much to overcome and change as we finally go into 2021, but I'm holding onto hope that this year will be very different, in a good way, of course. Although I'm hoping for many things to change this year, there are also some I wish to stay the same. For example, my fur babies!

CIB Sunday #18 – ‘Pokemon Moon’

It isn't the most recent release from the series, but 'Pokemon Moon' is the newest game I've played to date. After all these years and multiple games, you may wonder if their quality has decreased somewhat. However, I think 'Moon' still retains the magic and fun of the original 'Pokemon' video games, while introducing fresh mechanics and putting its own unique spin on the usual journey. Somehow, each 'Pokemon' title manages to be just as engrossing and interesting as the last, even after so many different games. Today, I'm going to go over what I loved about my experience with 'Pokemon Moon.'

Feline Friday #57 – Christmas Kitties in 2020!

One of my favorite parts of Christmas day each year is getting to see how my kitties react to it. This has always been one of the most memorable aspects for me. Christmas is definitely an exciting day for us humans, but I think it's even more so for fur babies, and judging from my own cats, this is most certainly the case.

Merry Christmas, and Happy Holidays to All!

Merry Christmas, and happy holidays to all!! I know this holiday season, and just this year in general, hasn't been exactly what we expected or hoped for. For many of us, it's been a year of ups and downs, of disappointment and sorrow. But, there are still so many aspects of life that make it beautiful and joyful. And I think Christmas is one of the best occasions to focus on the positive parts of life. Even in a year like 2020, it's a time to feel and embrace joy, a time to concentrate on those we love most, and to spread kindness across the world.

With a major holiday like Christmas coming up, it can be very easy to fall into stress and anxiety. But, at times like this, it's incredibly important to remember the true spirit of the holidays. They're meant to spread love and kindness, to give joy to others, and just to give in general. So don't let holiday related stress get you down; instead, focus on the true message of the holidays and fully embrace it. Enjoy the holidays for what they are, a time to give, embrace joy, and spend time with loved ones.

Feline Friday #56 – Christmas is Almost Here!?

Christmas preparation also includes a lot of wrapping paper, packaging, plastic, and other knick knacks for the kitties to play with. To be honest, the cats aren't very helpful with those preparations; their main contributions are tearing up wrapping paper, biting at scissors for said paper, and trying to eat ribbons. But, it's always nice to see them have so much fun!

Remember that it's always okay to ask for help. There is no shame or defeat in needing the help of others. So when the burden you're carrying becomes too much for you to bear alone, please ask those around you for help and guidance. We all need a bit of help every now and then.

Feline Friday #55 – Fur Babies Are the Best!

This week, my family and I are in quarantine after being exposed to the terrible virus that shall not be named here. Accordingly, my anxiety has been off the charts lately, worrying about myself, my family, and us developing symptoms. But, our kitties are here with us, too. And as usual, they make everything better!

CIB Sunday #17 – ‘The Evil Within’

The Evil Within is absolutely one of my favorite video games of all time. It was the first game I ever played on the PlayStation 4 system, and for that, it will also forever have a special place in my heart. I still have very fond memories of this title, but my attachment to it isn't just a result of sentimentality. There are a great many reasons why this particular game is so good, and I'll be going over some of the main reasons today.

Feline Friday #53 – Thankful for the Kitties!

With this being the season of giving and thankfulness, I think it's only fitting I talk a bit about what I'm grateful for this year. Of course, I'm incredibly thankful for my family as a whole. But, there are a few particular furry family members I greatly appreciate; my four sweet kitties, Zen, Kash, Karma, and Bell. I believe that fur babies aren't talked about as much when it comes to this sort of feeling, so I just want to say how my cats have made a difference in everyday life for me.

Today, let's all take a moment to consider the parts of life we're thankful for. It's true that we will always encounter obstacles and hardships throughout life, but even on our worst days, and in the toughest times, there are so many things to give thanks for. Just to be alive and breathing is such an amazing experience, and a wonderful opportunity. We can choose to dwell on the negative parts of life, or we can concentrate on those that are positive and enrich our lives.

Feline Friday #52 – Thanksgiving for Fur Babies!

Do you typically celebrate Thanksgiving with your fur babies? If so, what do you do to make the day special for them? Do you prepare them a grand Thanksgiving themed meal? Do they get showered in even more love and affection than usual? I’m wondering because the American Thanksgiving holiday is coming up very quickly.

It's okay to take a break if you need one. Sometimes, we just need a bit of time to relax, rest, and refresh. This is necessary for all aspects of our health and well-being. Powering through mental, emotional, or physical exhaustion can easily lead to burn out and make our overall well-being even worse. So, please remember, take time to rest when you truly need it. That's essential for every factor of your health and happiness.

Feline Friday #51 – Zenny, the Cute Sass Queen!

I LOVE this picture of Zenny and Bell! It's so rare that our kitty girls do anything together, much less rest beside one another. So, this particular picture isn't just adorable; it also represents an unlikely, but sweet moment between our favorite girl cats. And for that, this recent picture already has a special place in my heart.
