Wide Awake

This song resonates with every fiber of my being at the moment:

Sometimes things in life happen to us that we would never expect. They come out of left field like a dump truck, run you over, and don’t hit the brakes to see if you survived or are even okay for that matter. This is my life right now. I am okay, or I will be. No need to send me a thousand emails or private messages, please. There are just some things people have to deal with alone. This is one of those things and definitely one of those times. 

I don’t have the answers for what happened. I’m not sure I ever will. My heart aches and my soul is on fire.  However, I refuse to let this define me. I refuse to succumb to the sadness.

The anger.
The pain.

I choose to be happy because we all have to make choices. 

I choose to not let this or anything else stand in my way. 

Am I being cryptic? Yes, because what happened to me is just that, it happened to me. This is my fight. 

I plan to win.

Help, My Cat is Pooping Outside the Litter Box!

This is Princess Leia. Lately, little miss Leia has had a bit of an issue. She's been pooping outside of the litter boxes. See? Even a cat behaviorist can have cats with issues. Luckily, Leia's problem was quickly and easily diagnosed. My Bengal, Loki, had been bullying her away from the litter boxes. We set up a nice little box for her in a quiet area of the house and she hasn't had any issues since. I really think she is enjoying the fact she gets her own powder room. But, there can be many reasons a kitty starts this type of behavior so I am going to go over the most common ones below.

Here are some of the basic reasons:

1. A recent litter brand change.
Cats are huge creatures of habit and often finicky when it comes to their poop dirt. If you recently changed their litter try going back to the old stuff.   2. The litter isn't deep enough.
Some cats love a lot of litter and are big diggers. If they don't have enough litter (an amount to their liking, not yours) k…

Cats & Vaccines

This gorgeous boy had to get some vaccines yesterday. I keep all of my furbabies up to date with their vaccinations and you should too. My kitties rarely ever go outside, but I still get them all their shots just in case. You never know. I once had one of my indoor only kitties get let out by an old roommate. The cat was missing for three long weeks. I was in agony not knowing where my baby was or what could be happening to him. Lucky for me, he showed back up but not without some very serious injuries. I never vaccinated him for outdoor stuff because, he was only indoor. Well, many years later I lost him to Feline Leukemia. The only time he could have contracted it was during the time he was lost. I was devastated. He could have lived a much longer life and I learned a very hard and valuable lesson.

That being said, Loki is normally a very active and spazy cat. Call it a Bengal thing. However, after three vaccines yesterday I could tell this morning he was feeling a bit blah and ten…
