National Cat Day

Apparently November 29th is National Cat Day. While I tend to be more of a dog person we have somehow ended up with three cats.


When Skippy went missing for over a month and a half the kids talked us into a new little kitten. Two weeks later Skippy turned up again.

So now we are a crazy cat household. Sometimes it's more of a zoo than a house.

We have Buttons, our 13 year old three legged cat. We've had her since she was an itty bitty kitten and she is such a sweetheart. She will sit on my feet at night and keep them warm. She perched on top of the sofa right behind Jacob most of the time he was sick. When the kids were babies she would groom their hair and lie on the floor next to them like they were her kittens.
Skippy is still kind of a weirdo. He was Jacob's cat so we put up with him. He continues to be a bit more wild since he has turned up after his two month adventure. He now has a collar with his tag on it so he is allowed to go in and out of the house and seems to appreciate us more because of that fact. There are times that he can be loving and cuddle, but it has to be on his terms.

Mr. Bean is the new one in the house. He is such a calm little guy but has his own personality. He doesn't usually come when called, won't come up to cuddle, but will purr and rub against you when scooped up and hugged. He's so pretty and soft and loves to wrestle with Skippy and our dog, Chewy.  

Our vacuum cleaner gets used constantly around here and we really should invest in cat litter stocks and cat food shares. But it is amazing to see the different personalities that each creature God made brings to our life.


  1. I recommend the Tidy Cat Breeze litter system! It's a little high BUT not too much when you pair a Petsmart salenwith the $7 coupon from the website. The pellets and soaker pads are more than traditional litter too but they don't track all over the house and there is ZERO cat pee smell! It's amazing.

    1. Thank you for recommending that! The thing that appeals to me most (besides the no cat pee smell!) is the tracking litter! Ugh...I hate when my cats track litter and would love a system where that won't happen! I will be carrying the $7 coupon around with me in case I run across an awesome sale!
