Our Cat's Place – Living With Cats

thoughts, articles, & information on cats, their behavior, and their relationships with us.

    My family always loves this time of year. We get all excited about Halloween coming, planning our costumes and our daughter making trick or treating plans with her friends. She’s going to be the Easter Bunny this year. My husband is thinking Santa Claus. I don’t know, maybe we just don’t have a very good grasp on the holiday calendar (lol). As for me, well, I was thinking about dusting off my old Catwoman costume – what else? (Never mind that I wore it two years in a row already. It’s a totally cool costume and I look great in it!)

    Now, what about Eric? Our big orange tabby cat? Just went browsing around the web and found this picture of a swashbuckling cutie on Amazon. I wonder if Eric has ever had Three Musketeers fantasies? Puss in Boots anyone? Well, it’s a thought anyway. Only two weeks to go, and counting!

    Have Fun!

    Happy New Year from Our Cat’s Place!

    One of my resolutions this year is to be more like my cats. They always seems to be happy and on top of things. Here’s some food for thought….

    1. Life is hard, then you nap.

    2. Curiosity never killed anything except maybe a few hours.

    3. When in doubt, cop an attitude.

    4. Variety is the spice of life: one day ignore people, the next day annoy them.

    5. Climb your way to the top–that’s why drapes are there.

    6. Never sleep alone when you can sleep on someone’s face.

    7. Find your place in the sun–especially if it happens to be on that nice pile of warm, clean laundry.

    8. Make your mark in the world–or at least spray in each corner.

    9. When eating out think nothing of sending back your meal twenty or thirty times

    10. If you’re not receiving enough attention, try knocking over several expensive antique lamps.

    11. Always give generously–a small bird or rodent left on the bed tells them, “I care.”

    12. When you go out into the world, remember: being placed on a pedestal is a right, not a privilege.

    Cheers,

    February 3, 2011 is Chinese New Year. In China it may be the year of the rabbit, but in Vietnam it’s the Year of the Cat!

    Here at Our Cat’s Place, we think it’s the year of the cat every year, but this is a great opportunity to shout out our love of all things feline.

    Care For Cats is sponsoring a series of events across Canada related to sharing information about cats and helping to promote adoption, spaying, and good health care for our beloved felines.

    Check it out at the Care For Cats website!

    all the best,
