My Fur Kids


The Mommy here.

On World Cat Day 2015 I'd like to list a few things--in no PURRticular order--I'd never have had (and am very grateful for) if it wasn't for The Cats.

Fur, everywhere.  Whenever I pick a cat hair off of my clothes (or my food) I always smile and think of them.

Cuddles, especially the ones involving an anus in my face.  Special Times.  

The Joy of Servitude, and dishing out 20 cans of cat food daily.
Scooping the sequelae of those 20 cans.

Humility in the face of Superior Beings, making me a better person.

Petting requests at 3 AM, just because.

Yak.  And the intriguing guesswork of from whom it was emitted.

Lots and lots and LOTS of help.

The wonderful friendship and camaraderie of all the fellow bloggers I've met over the past five years! 

Cats are Wonderful.

Happy CATurday!

  1. cats are wonderful indeed!!! I particularly like the 3am love requests, cuz everyone knows that's the best time for loves.

  2. Happy World Cat Day! They sure do enrich our lives! And even the gross stuff isn't so bad because, well, furry love!

  3. Oh yes indeed and Äiti feels similarly blessed. But with less yak as we are younger. That will come....

  4. Happy World Cat Day to Effury one at the Katnip Lounge!!! XOX T., George, Gracie & The Shepherd and his crew.

  5. Happy Caturday to you! That is a fine list.

  6. I especially love the "humility in the face of superior beings". Even with only 2 cats, I can relate to all of those. I'd like to add the personal challenge (opportunity for growth) that comes from skirting the edge of bankruptcy all the time, because of the vet bills. :-P

  7. Your list made me smile! I love scooping, too. It's a joy :-)
    And fur everywhere...wherever I find it, it makes me smile, too!

  8. Couldn't agree more... Happy wc day.

  9. I have all of those same things to be grateful for (well except wondering who's yak that is as I only have one yakker right now). I don't know how I would be without my furry guy!

  10. Amen to all of that! Happy World Cat Day everyone!

  11. We wouldn't have it any other way. Happy World Cat Day to all of you.

  12. DITTOS!!

    Happy Caturday!!
    Annabelle,Boo,Ping, and Mr Jinx

  13. Great celebration ! Happy World Cat Day ! Purrs

  14. Bwa! Haa!! Haaa!!! Even though mes Gone Fishing, when mes was checking my emails and saw your post, mes just had to stops by and say HAPPY WORLD CAT DAY!
    Being a Cat Mom is the bestest!!

  15. Very sweet post.Happy World Cat Day!

  16. Love your list....definitely echos mine. l especially love all the "help"---lots and lots of it---along with a good deal of supervision!

  17. Us cats are the best! Happy World Cat Day to all your fur kids.

  18. We agree, we ARE wunnerful!! The three of us wish you ALL a VERY Happy World Cat Day!

  19. Those facts are all so very true. What would be do with ourselves if we didn't have all our cats. Cats are the very best.

  20. We love you!!! Happy Belated World Cat Day! xoxo

  21. They are wonderful aren't they? I can't imagine a life without cats. The yak attacks and early morning wake-ups, perhaps, but not the cats.

    Happy belated World Cat Day!

  22. Mom says she can relate. She wonders if you have seen the newest Dear Kitten commercial? It's on-line, and she knows you'd appreciate it. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo


Oh Boy...this is gonna be GREAT!
