About Cats

Did you know I'm a cat convert? I grew up with a boxer named Lucky. After J  and I got married, we took his black cat Pepper who was about 15 years old.

We have 4 now, but over the past 30+ years, we've had around 12 cats.

Pepper liked steak, Italian beef, beer and going on a leash with me on the porch. I don't have any digital pictures. We couldn't leave food on the table or he'd steal it.

I wonder if their little cat spirits go into other cats. Fritz, our black cat, also likes steak, Italian beef and will put his paw in your plate to get at the food.


Fritz and Tommy

Tommy is our youngest at 6 mos old. He's a kitten in the typical sense, plays with everything and attacks. He comes when he's called and is a great cuddler. But he's mischievous too.


Tommy (top) and Buddy (bottom)

Buddy is our oldest at 10 and he's been with us the longest. He's very vocal and doesn't allow the cat bowls to be completely empty. He starts meowing loudly and rubbing on the cat food container. He's trained Tommy and Sammy to also complain if you can see the bottom of the bowl.


Tommy and Sammy

I caught this picture with my cell phone, so there's a little shake. Often, I find these 2 together. They're 2 of the most social cats we've had. 

I like all cat things, note cards, jewelry, pictures and figurines. 

In fact, I've made some cat earrings and I'd like to find new homes for them. Today through Saturday, my blog discount is get 10% off your purchase of $10 or more with coupon code BLOG10

  1. Hehe! I love tabbies of all colors, and it's cool to see a grey and orange tabby hanging out.

  4. Love your post. I am a cat lover too but have not had one to snuggle for several years. We have a no pet household due to the demands of my day job. But I have many very fond memories of lazy days chilling with my cat, sox.

    Thanks for sharing it brought back great memories and it was nice to meet the furry members of your family.

    Blessings

  6. Tee hee. So cute. I can't believe the 2 that cuddle. I've never had cats that got along. Just a cat and dog that cuddled together but only because they both insisted on being on my lap at all times :)

    Love the jewelry too :)

    1. No, if I had to make beads too, I'd need another house to put them in.

  13. I'm a cat lover too, but we can't have one since my daughter is allergic (and probably me too, but I won't admit it! LOL). So we're currently a dog and bunny household at the moment, but someday I'd love to get a Maine Coon. Love your cat themed jewelry too! *Ü*

    1. Thanks, Lori. There are hairless cats, I forget their breeds. A Maine Coon has long hair - we had a Norwegian Forest Cat -they're beautiful, but must be groomed constantly.

  14. I've always been a cat lover but hadn't had one for many years, just pups. I'm now in an apartment and my oldest daughter gave me a kitty for Christmas with all the necessities, too. I fell in love with her right away. She likes to snuggle with me on my couch while I watch TV. I can't see Buddy's face but the rest of him reminds me of her. Her name is Rosi after my shop, she has beautiful green eyes.

    I love the kitty earrings!!

    1. Rosi, I'm glad you got a kitty to snuggle with. You'll have to show us pictures.

      And, I have new kitty earrings coming to my shop.

  15. My son has two cats and one will hide when anyone comes over (Boo) he is totally black. The other is my favorite, and her name is Skittles,(She looks like a bag of skittles candy )and she just snubs everyone, and she decides when she wants to be petted. She is my favorite, and I have to beg her to come to me.
