Chatty Cats: Asked and Answered

Happy Friday! Last weekend I attended the Costa Mesa Cat Extravaganza that was put on by LCWW Group (Loving Cats Worldwide). While it was a cat show with judges, there were also a lot of fun vendor booths – and lots of cats available for adoption! It was a nice little cat show and I was happy to see cats being adopted.

Here’s what my cats were up to this week. We hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Chatty Cats: Woodrow’s Non-Answer

Happy Friday! Readers who visited last week know that Cat Dad and I were on vacation (a hint below at where we were). We returned in time to tune into the CWA awards ceremony where I won two Muse Medallions! I entered two categories this year, and I’m so honored that I won the Muse for both. And even more exciting, it’s for two categories that I’ve never won a Muse before (social media and photography). A big thank you to the contest judges – and an even bigger thank you to Katherine the contest chair for doing a wonderful job with the contest this year.

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”
