Chatty Cats: Harley’s Self-Assessment

Happy Friday! Harley had a senior exam this week. He did very well and didn’t even pee in the carrier on the way, which he usually does. His kidney values held steady (he has chronic kidney disease), and so did his weight. He was also rechecked for his most recent development of hyperthyroidism. He’s been on meds for 4 months now – and his thyroid levels were perfect! The vet said Harley is doing very well considering he’s had CKD for over three years, hyperthyroidism and heart disease! He has his next echocardiogram scheduled for later this month. Harley is a happy senior kitty, and we love him very much. Continue reading “Chatty Cats: Harley’s Self-Assessment”

Chatty Cats: An exciting announcement!

Happy Friday! For the past two months, I’ve been hard at work prepping an online store called Cat Lady Alley that sells cat-themed stickers and stationery. I’m so excited to announce that it is now open! I’d be honored if you’d check it out. More on the shop below, but now back to the cats.

We hope everyone has a wonderful weekend – and that those in the path of Hurricane Ian stay safe! Continue reading “Chatty Cats: An exciting announcement!”

Chatty Cats: Sweater Weather

Happy Friday! We’ve finally cooled off a bit! We’re not quite ready to turn off the air conditioning for the rest of the year, but at least we can enjoy open windows in the morning and much of the day now. I may just be ready for my first pumpkin spice latte. Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Continue reading “Chatty Cats: Sweater Weather”

Chatty Cats: Harley Takes the Blame

Happy Friday! Did everyone have a nice week? Nothing too exciting over here. Well, except for when our power went out briefly Wednesday evening. It rarely ever happens, but it’s a good reminder about how fortunate we are to have reliable electricity! It’s also interesting how quiet it gets when the entire neighborhood is without power. We hope you had a good week and we’re wishing you a wonderful weekend! Continue reading “Chatty Cats: Harley Takes the Blame”

Chatty Cats: Dexter’s Urgent Request

Happy Friday! Yesterday I received a very nice note on Instagram. A brand new follower direct messaged me to say that they were having a pretty bad day – but then started scrolling through my posts and that I single-handedly made their day better.

I love sharing my cats with the world and I know that they’ve touched many hearts, whether or not people tell me. But hearing something like that directly really makes all the time and effort that I put into posting worth it. And their comment of course made my day!

Also, a big thank you to all of you blog readers! Your comments always brighten my day and I love that you take the time to follow along on our ever-evolving cat journey. Hugs to you all! Now, back to the cats.

Chatty Cats: Changes, Videos and More!

Happy Friday! Today’s “Chatty Cat” post is our 222nd one in the series! It’s been a good run, but I’m looking to change up these Friday posts. I still plan to post on Fridays, but it won’t be a recap of the week’s happenings.

I’ve been posting more videos on social media, and I don’t feel it works as well here on the blog (taller video format, copyright issues because of music, etc). So, if you want to see all of our content – chats and videos – be sure to follow us on Instagram or Facebook. I know some of you don’t do social media, so I plan to post other content here each Friday.

But one last time – here’s what the cats were up to this week! Continue reading “Chatty Cats: Changes, Videos and More!”
