Tortie Talk Tuesday with Olive

Olive here! It has come to my attention that some readers have noticed that I don’t appear on the Mama’s blog as often as my siblings. Or that I ever appear with my siblings in pictures. So, I thought I’d drop in today with a couple of updates and one surprise for you.

First off, let me tell you that I like to keep things mysterious, which is why I don’t allow the Mama to snap my picture often. She always has a camera or phone in her hands, so I usually run the other way when I see her coming. But when I do allow it, I look oh so bee-oo-tee-full! Don’t you agree? Well, don’t you?!?

Sunday Selfies and the Commentathon Results

Before I get to Dexter and Sophie’s Sunday selfies, I want to update you on the #GivingTuesday commentathon. It closed yesterday and I used Random.org to select the animal rescue from the comments to donate to.

And the selected rescue is… A Rejoyceful Animal Rescue, as nominated by Robin from Playful Kitty! The comment totals were less than I’d hoped for, so I added in comments from Facebook and Instagram, too – and then decided to double the donation amount. So later today, A Rejoyceful Animal Rescue will be receiving a $70.00 donation. Thank you to all who left comments!

And now, onto our Sunday selfies… Continue reading “Sunday Selfies and the Commentathon Results”

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.

Mary Moon, tortie cat Continue reading “Adopting Senior Cats: Mary Moon and Her Many Sweaters”
