America’s Family Pet Expo

This past Saturday I attended America’s Family Pet Expo, which is an annual event that takes place at the Orange County Fair Grounds in Southern California. Described as the world’s largest pet and pet products expo, they have everything from adoptable pets and a cat show to pet products and entertainment. I haven’t seen this year’s figures yet, but last year over 50,000 people attended the three-day expo and there are usually hundreds of adoptions each year – including cats, dogs, rabbits, birds, reptiles and more!

It was perfect weather for the expo, which takes place both indoors and outdoors throughout the fairgrounds. Here are some of the things I saw this year.

Chatty Cats: Warnings, Drama and More!

Happy Friday! As some followers already know, Dexter had a dental cleaning on Monday. This was his second one – and thankfully, he didn’t need any extractions this time either. However, we are trying to determine some issues going on with him, which you can read about below. He’s fine, but we do need to get to the bottom of it. He’s most upset about having a shaved belly. But someone on Facebook pointed out that he’s beach body ready!

Here’s what the cats were chatting about this past week. Continue reading “Chatty Cats: Warnings, Drama and More!”

Chatty Cats: Awkward, Bossy and More!

Happy Friday! I want to share something very cool that I received last week. I’ve been volunteering with The Jackson Galaxy Project’s Cat Pawsitive Pro initiative since it started a few years ago. Every semester, the wonderful and kind program manager Christie sends the team of volunteers a thank you gift. We received this semester’s gift a little early because she had a wonderful opportunity that she couldn’t pass up. And here it is…! Continue reading “Chatty Cats: Awkward, Bossy and More!”

Chatty Cats: Busy, Blues and More!

Happy Friday! Our news this week was that we opened the catio up over the weekend. The cats have been very happy about that, and all but Harley visit it every day. I’m sorry for those of you who have snow again. Hopefully, it won’t last long. Here’s to hoping for warmer weather and no more signs of winter!

Cats in the Catio

This past weekend, cat dad Ross cleaned out the catio that has been closed for winter. Winter in Southern California? I know, I know. But we had one of the rainiest winters here in recent memory. And with dust and debris, the catio got a little dirty.

As soon as the catio was back in business on Saturday, four out of five cats raced right into it. Ross picked up Harley and carried him to it…and Harley immediately ran back inside through the cat door. He’s just not into it. But Dexter, Olive, Sophie and Woodrow all love the catio.
