Mancat Monday

Tylan: ::Comes over to Carmine in his heated bed:: Hi Carmine!

Carmine: Hi.

Tylan: You don't mind if I hop in there and snuggle with you, do you?

Carmine: Tylan, this bed is really made for one kit-

Umm...okay, I guess you're hopping in anyway.

Tylan: Isn't this great?

Carmine: It's too bad social distancing doesn't apply to cats....

In all seriousness, though, we hope you are all staying safe and well. Hang in there, everyone!

Words of Wisdom from the Wise, Old Mancat

Hi everyone, it's mes, Carmine!

Last night, the Mom was talking to one of hers friends on Facebook chat. Hers took this photo of mes in my heated bed and sent it to hers friend. Yous know what hers friend said?

Hers said that mes, "Looks like an old soul who has long experienced the world and has the wisdom of old cats everywhere." 

In other words, mes ams a wise old mancat. 

That means that everybody should listen to mes, right? Right? Right.

And this old, wise mancat says that everyone should give their kitties extra hugs today 'cause wes will make you smile during these rough times. 

Please stay safe and well, everyone!

Happy Birthday, Carmine!

Today is a very special day!

It's Carmine's 15th birthday!

Happy Birthday, Carmine!

It is hard to believe it's been more than 14 years since Carmine claimed me as his human and came to live with us as a tiny 14-week-old kitten. 

I am beyond blessed that Carmine chose ME to be his human. 

Happy Birthday, Carmine! 

We love you bunches and bunches!!

The Mom, Tylan, Angel Lita, and Angel Jewel

Protecting Your Pet from Theft

Pet Theft Awareness cat graphic.

Having a pet stolen isn't something I've experienced, and I hope and pray that none of you have, either. I cannot even begin to imagine how devastating it would be to have a companion animal taken from you. Because today is Pet Theft Awareness Day, I'd like to talk with you all about this important topic.

Why Are Pets Stolen?

Pets are stolen for numerous reasons. Some common reasons include:

  • Monetary Gain: Purebred dogs and cats may be stolen and resold for hundreds or thousands of dollars.

    Sadly, some people take pets in hopes of receiving a reward from the distraught owner. In these cases, the thief waits for the pet owner to post fliers offering a reward for the return of their pet. The thief then calls and claims that they've found the pet and cashes in on the reward. Of course, this doesn't mean that everyone who claims they've found a pet is a thief. There are still plenty of good people in the world.
  • Breeding: Int-tact pets can be stolen and sent off to puppy or kitten mills for breeding. This is another good reason to have your pet spayed or neutered.
  • Research: Some thieves sell stolen pets to veterinary institutions or research facilities that use cats and dogs for biomedical experiments or testing.
  • Dog Fighting: Some dogs are used in dog fights or as, “bait dogs.”

Don't Mess with My Ears!

Carmine in his heated bed.Hi everyone, it's mes, Carmine!

Last week, mes wented to the vet for a blood sugar check cause mes is a sugar kitty now, but that be for another post. 

The Mom asked thems to look in my ears cause mes had been shaking my head a lot lately. Sure enough, theys found a lot of wax in my ears. 

The vet guy took mes to the back to give my ears a washy. 

Most of yous probably know that mes ams a very cooperative mancat at the vet. Mes allows thems to do whatever theys has to do, and mes doesn't fuss...

.....Except, as it turns out, when it comes to my ears!

Theys started cleaning my ears out. Mes put up with it for a minute or two, but then mes meowed at thems to cut it out! Theys didn't listen, so mes meowed again to quit messing with my ears!
