Run! Zombies!

Okay, so there weren't really zombies. But, I did run over the weekend and I did a pretty darn good job. This is my third year running this 5k (3.1 miles) and I have knocked my time down 11 minutes from last year. I am super stoked about that.  I ran it in 34 minutes.

THIRTY FOUR MINUTES!!

I. Can't. Even.

The simple fact that the first year I came in at 46 mins. The second year at 45 and this year at 34 mins just blew my mind. BLEW IT! I guess all the other races I have done this year have really helped me. In all I have completed three 5k's and four 10k's (6.2 miles).

I never thought my body was capable of such things. I never thought my mind was either, but I didn't give myself enough credit. It might have taken me two years to get to this point and trust me, I started out super slow. 

I'm proud. 

I'm proud because I didn't give up even though there were so many times I really wanted to. 

There were so many times that finish line seemed too far away, too unattainable, to unrealistic. 

But, I refused to give up and it's paid off. So, I guess what I am saying is no matter what your current goal is: don't give up. 

The road isn't always easy. The reward is worth it.

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…

Why Does My Cat Hate My Significant Other?

If you're reading this then I am guessing you've come here because you have a very mad kitty. I am also going to guess said kitty doesn't like your significant other. Don't worry, it happens. Cats aren't like dogs. You can't just tempt them with a little piece of steak and throw a tennis ball to become friends. If you try that your cat is just going to give you the above look and walk away hell bent on destroying your new relationship. Never underestimate kitty, they're smarter than we think.

You might even have adopted a new cat that took to you easily, but just down right dislikes the other person in your life. That's okay. There's something about an immediate bond with a cat. If you get that special moment you're lucky. If your partner does not, maybe some of the following tips can help.

1. Feeding Time:
If you're the only one feeding kitty, start letting your partner prepare the cat's food and actually feed the meal. Kitty might not …
