Tale of Two Tails...

During morning feeding, I noticed these two tails....
Fluffy is on the left, Beasley on the right. Her tail is curled up, and his is straight out away from his body.

I thought it was so cute, I had to take a photo!

Yes, they both have mats - please overlook that. We had a flea infestation, and their biting the fleas caused them. I'm slowly removing them - as the cats allow.

I've been doing this (cat whispering) for about 5 years, now. I love each contact I have with my clients, and I love each and every cat. I started because I wanted to keep cats in their homes.

The 6 reasons I see for cats losing their homes most often are...
  • Missing the Litter Box
  • Not Getting Along
  • Aggression
  • Foreclosure (the only thing I can't help with)
  • Inappropriate Meowing
  • Allergies
For foreclosure, please try to contact a rescue organization before you resort to the local animal shelter, to give your cat the best chance of finding a new home. Please don't just abandon your cat. For all the other reasons, I'm available for counseling. Even allergies can be helped!

I just want you all to know that I love and appreciate your support over these 5 years. Let's go forward into year 6 with arms linked....

Morning Wake-Up Service

Mr Beasley, my erstwhile favorite, wakes me every morning around 6-7AM. I'm tired. I don't sleep particularly well, and then he wakes me up.

Now, granted that I got up at that time for 2 years, without fail, every morning, and gave him breakfast.

I have a magnet I found someplace (no, I don't have one to sell you, although I sure wish I did!) that says "There is no snooze button on a cat who wants breakfast" and that is truly what happened this morning. Both of the crunchy bowls were empty.

So, yes, I got up and fed them. Reinforcing the behavior, of course...

Boy! Cats sure know how to train people! :-P
