A New Chapter

 I have decided to begin a new chapter in my life and to be honest I am not sure why I haven't done this sooner. I think it must have been the lack of time. Now, I have extra time and I have chosen to follow my heart.

My writing still comes and goes. I am working on a project, but not actively. I haven't found a way to get back into it full time and if I am being completely honest my heart hasn't been all that into it the last few years either. Besides the craft of writing and my family there is a huge part of my heart that can do good elsewhere.

Cats.

Yes, you read that right. Cats. Anyone who knows me can tell you that I am a crazy cat lady. My husband might have cut me off at only owning three, but my heart is too big to only love just my furbabies. I want to love and save them all. Ever since I was little I would always be bringing stray cats home begging to keep them. I've had cats my entire life. Special needs cats, grumpy cats, normal cats, shy cats, you name the type and I have had one like it. Each and every one is or was special in their own way and I have been forever grateful for the experiences they taught me not only about them but myself.

That being said, I have had tremendous amounts of experience with all types and breeds of cats. I have decided to offer my services as a cat behavior specialist to my local area. All of my friends and even in some cases, friends of friends, call me for advice. I have watched Jackson Galaxy's "My Cat From Hell" show and been told so many times, I should do that.

Well, now I am. I am doing it because like Jackson, I have a gift. I understand cats and how they can change a single person's life in so many ways. I get that they aren't always perfect, but neither are most humans. We all cohabit this earth and I want to do my part to help more cats not only find their forever homes but keep them too.

For Mooshu and Luna the two sweetest angels that changed my life in so many ways.


For the love of cats,

Birthday Bliss

I turned thirty seven this past weekend (cringe), but I had a blast doing it!

My husband and daughter made me cards (I prefer these versus bought cards). I love that they take the time to make a card each year, it makes me feel extra special. Although, this year kiddo's car was a "flat card", her words. She didn't want to fold the artwork. I totally get you, mini me.

Saturday I had a kid free day with a friend and we spent hours laughing and thrift shopping. I found some great treasures and even a pair of bright flowery running shorts. I will take a picture of said shorts as they embarrassed my friend and she vowed NOT to be seen running with me at our next race if I wore them. I took that as a compliment and a challenge. =P Later that night hubby and kiddo took me to dinner at my favorite Thai restaurant (they aren't open on Sundays).

Sunday I finally checked out one of those bar/painting shops. Five girlfriends and I drank, laughed, painted and had a great tim…

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…
