5 Things to Be Thankful for this Thanksgiving

Sophie here! As many humans are currently hustling and bustling about, preparing meals, tidying up the house and welcoming guests, I thought I would take this time to tell you what I am – I mean – what we three chatty cats are thankful for this Thanksgiving.

Adopting Senior Cats: Mary Moon and Her Many Sweaters

Did you know that November is Adopt a Senior Pet Month? If not, now you do!

So often, seniors are passed over in shelters for younger cats or kittens, which makes seniors harder to adopt out, oftentimes with them staying longer in the shelter than younger pets. But with a senior pet, you know what you’re getting! They’re full-grown in size, they’ve already developed into their personality, and a senior pet just knows that you’re rescuing them.

To celebrate and encourage adopting senior pets this month (and any month), I’d like to share with you the adoption story of Mary Moon. This senior tortie cat’s Instagram profile (yes, of course Mary has an Instagram account!) says: “Professional lap cat and sweater connoisseur.” That sounds pretty intriguing. I simply had to know more about this adorable senior cat.

How to Litter Train Your Kitten

Today we have a guest post from Annie Anderson, founder of MeowKai.

Compared to dogs, cats are relatively easy to litter train. In fact, the mother initiates the process of litter training once the kitten has been weaned. When you bring your kitten home, he should already be used to using the litter box, so your job of litter training is made even easier! However, if the kitten is a stray and hasn’t had his mother to teach him, you can take over the litter training process.

Young Kittens up to 3 weeks old

Very young kittens will need help Continue reading “How to Litter Train Your Kitten”

Introducing Cat Lady Alley

Hello, friends. I’ve been absent this past week from posting and visiting because I’ve been working on a new project, which I am very excited to finally announce. Today, I begin a new blogging journey with Cat Lady Alley…Where Curiosity Spoiled the Cat Lady!

cat_lady_alleyWhen I first started Three Chatty Cats, I sort of fell into the rescue/cause niche without any intention or pre-planning of doing so. But it worked out nicely and Continue reading “Introducing Cat Lady Alley”
