Happy New Year from all us cats @catnipoflife!
For some of us, the glutenous meal is over, for others it is yet to come. For our pets, I suppose when enough is enough, it’s enough!
Upon occasion you ‘meet’ someone who shares a picture, story, or video that warrants the sharing to continue. This time, for me, it happened in a Tweet. The little birdies sing all day long but time does not allow them all to be heard. This one, however, caught my eye – mira lo que hace este gato look at this cat his name is suco pan de huevo – naturally rousing my curiosity since it was about a cat.
As it turned out, not just any cat but a rescued cat. Even more interesting is his new home being with a person who implies he does not like cats. However, let me clarify with reason. He is allergic to the cat dander. Not unusual but what is so wonderful about the video he shared is his natural affection for Suco and his words midway of the video, “I love this cat.” You will fall in love with Suco, too, and the great message that is shared all the way from Ecuador from his human parent. Thank you, Andres.
May all share the message NO MALTRATO ANIMAL – NO ANIMAL ABUSE!
Share the love! Purr-r-r-r-r-r-r-r
November 12 is designated at Days of the Year as World Architecture Day. There seems to be some confusion as to when this day’s day actually exists. In completing research for Awakenings, some very interesting cats emerged. The photos are architecturally related but, of course, digitally enhanced.
Just a little catnip to brighten your day with a smile, or two or three…heck! just break out in some hearty laughter! Only a few are featured so be sure to visit LOLcats Descend on the World’s Most Famous Architecture for the entire gallery.
Hi-yah!, Aiyah!, Eeee-yah!
Watch me fly! Who’s next?
Now it is time to just relax and enjoy your day and night!
What is life without laughter? That is one category personally I have no clue other than it would be total boredom! With a husband that is a joke waiting to be told, a smile waiting to happen, and who considers a day wasted if not at sometime during that day making someone else laugh, there is always sunshine even on a rainy day. Sure we have our ups and downs, bad communication and misunderstandings, but who doesn’t? That is LIFE! It’s all in how you handle the moments with even the bad ones somehow allowing a smile to emerge along with flowing teardrops.
I never know at any moment in time what might he might say to knock me off my feet or send me bending double with laughter. Here are two that are totally hilarious. One a couple of years back and another recently.
My middle name is Anita. I have never really liked that name, never use it, never write it, especially since marriage. Out of the blue Jim calls me from across the room, “Anita! Anita!” I turn with a scowl look on my face responding, “Anita? Don’t call me Anita!” His immediate reply, “But, baby, I needa ya!” Get the pun?
For this one, keep in mind we just celebrated our Pearl Anniversary on July 10.
We are having some work done on our sprinkler system since the grass in the backyard is dying from all the heat and lack of sufficient water. The man putting in the irrigation system is named Jackie. Jim approaches Jackie and calls him over to the back porch, “Jackie, do you know why I love my wife so much?” Of course, Jackie responds with all sorts of commonalities and a few funnies of his own but remains somewhat perplexed because he knows Jim is going to come up with a doozie. And a doozie he did indeed. “She is beautiful, works like a hired hand, makes damn good biscuits and she doesn’t snore!”
What can I say? I love this man!
When it comes to laughter, there is hardly anything funnier than children and animals so let’s not stop here. Watch the video to end your day or perhaps begin a new day with a smile on your face and a laugh in your heart!
The cats are the best! What do you think? Which is your favorite?
Make someone’s day…smile, then LAUGH!
There are “scaredy-cats” and then there are scared cats. As humans, some of us are startled or frightened by a slight change or movement, even to the point of being afraid of anything and everything. Others take it with a grain of salt. Cats are among those that frighten very easily.
When startled, cats usually jump (often quite high), stumble over their own feet and scamper as fast as their little legs will carry them. Their expressions are indeed priceless! Yes! Cats have expressions…anyone who says cats are expressionless have never truly watched the face of a cat. In the close-ups within the video, focus on the eyes and ears. There are moments that will make you bend double laughing while others will bring on an aw-w-w-w moment.
For your added enjoyment, a step back in the past to the Scaredy Cat in the cartoons…
Do you frighten easily? Share your scariest moment…personal or cat!
June is Summertime! There are a lot of celebrations during the month of June but one most fitting to catnip is Adopt a Cat Month. With summer comes the rising temperatures and efforts being made to cool things down. Have you ever thought about our feline friends who don a fur coat all year long? The sweltering summer heat can indeed be a torment.
Adopt a Cat Month is HERE!
Why is Adopt A Cat Month in June? During the spring, shelters are brimming with cats and kittens of every age. Unfortunately, there are often more cats in a given shelter than they can handle.
This overpopulation causes millions of perfectly healthy, loveable and adoptable kittens and cats to be euthanized every year.
Even though June is designated as Adopt a Cat Month, it is not just about the cat. June is loaded with Pet Celebrations:
Ready? Set! Adopt a cat!

After a hard day’s work, whether stressed out from an office position, working at a construction site or laboring in the back yard, there is no better method of relaxation than a massage. It can be as simple as a hand or foot massage to as elaborate as a full body massage. The result is the same…peace at the end of the day!
The story goes that a stray cat on a beach in Thailand befriended a group of teachers who were taking advantage of a little rest and relaxation. The cat climbed into the lap of one of the teachers and got the massage of a lifetime. After watching the video you’ll swear this is not this cat’s first massage!
Okay, all you kittie moms and dads, where is the training video for Cat Massage 101? If a dog can be taught to fetch, why not teach a cat massage therapy! After all, it is in their nature to knead, knead, knead. Once naptime is over, it is time to stre-e-e-tch and limber up those limbs and paws. “Foxie! Come to Mama.”
Of course, if no one is available to give the massage, there are a plethora of tools or massage equipment that can be put to good use. Take for example the Shiatsu kneading fingers portable massager that kitty seems to be enjoying immensely in the video! Okay, time’s up feline friend…Mama’s turn!
