In honor of Remember Me Thursday, which takes place this year on September 27, 2018, I’m turning the blog over to Woodrow, who will be sharing his Pro Tips for Adopting a Shelter Cat.

Remember Me Thursday is the fourth Thursday of every September, and it’s meant to shine a light on orphan pets in shelters and rescues that are waiting for their forever homes.

On this Remember Me Thursday, let’s get the whole world talking about pet adoption on social media! And now, here’s what one former shelter cat has to say about adoption.

Combining Your Passions and Talents to Create High-Quality Content

If you think about what inspired you to start blogging, the clear answer for most pet bloggers would likely be their pets. And that’s no different for me. My cats inspired me to start Three Chatty Cats a little over two years ago.

To go a step further, I’d say that it’s my combined passion for cats, writing and photography that inspired my blog. But are those three passions enough to sustain a blog? Perhaps not. So, let’s go one level deeper…

While my core passions lit the internal spark to create a blog, it’s really my interests, skills and innate talents combined with those passions that truly allow me to create high-quality content for Three Chatty Cats.

If you look at your own blogging journey, perhaps you’ll find it’s the same for you.

But really, it’s the small things that add up to help accomplish the big things. And think about it – if you can touch the life of one homeless pet, then that individual pet’s life will be better because of you – and that means everything to that one pet!

Three Chatty Cats go to the Dentist

Oh, February. You’re a short month, but you offer up so much. Like Groundhog Day. Valentine’s Day. And President’s Day. And sometimes you give us an extra day – that elusive February 29th – for which we say thank you. But you also provide us with Pet Dental Health Awareness Month!

Pet Dental Health Awareness Month

So, as we close out another February, I figured I should hop to and tell you about our recent dental experience with the cats. And stay tuned at the end of the post for a giveaway, thanks to Chewy.comContinue reading “Three Chatty Cats go to the Dentist”

Waste Less with World’s Best Cat Litter #WasteLessLitter

The other day, someone asked me what my favorite thing about having cats was. My first response was scooping their litter obviously. Well, I jest. Scooping litter is more like number 3 on the list…4 if I’m being completely honest. Okay, okay, scooping litter probably wouldn’t make anyone’s favorite list. But with World’s Best Cat Litter™, an all-natural, lightweight, clumping cat litter, you might just re-evaluate scooping duty.

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.

Getting through Halloween with your cat (tips from Sophie!)

Sophie here! Listen up cats and kittens! I’m not sure if you’re a kitty who loves Halloween or not, but I have some tips that are sure to get you through the upcoming ghoulish day and night.

1) Don’t make it easy for costume fittings

Are you a cat who loves to dress up? Then I personally think you’re a rarity. In our household, none of us like to be dressed up, so we have to remind the Mama of that and not cooperate during costume fittings. I recommend giving the measuring tape a good ol’ chomp or whap!
