When Cats See Their First Snow

Black cat first snow

Cats have a way of showing you what to focus on and what to be amazed by.

I have a feeling this will not be his only snow of the season. He appeared so fascinated by the sounds, smells, and the “white stuff” inside our doorway. I even held him so he could see the wind blow outside the screen door during the storm

Sometimes I forget that my cats still have their “firsts.” His first was another moment for me to slow down and enjoy the beauty. Cat owners understand.   

 

Black Cat: Missing is the Yarn

All that is missing is the yarn…My lack of attention has kept me from crocheting/knitting. I would love to knit a piece the combination of his eyes and skin

Dinner with my Black Cat love…

Dinner, wine, cozy evening on a cold night. Black cat relaxation! After a few weeks of mild temperature in New Jersey, true winter has arrived. I thought waking up when it was dark and coming home when it was dark was the most of my issues. That wasn’t even a problem. 

Having your phone tell you it is 22 degrees but feels like 0 degrees is not incentive to go to work. My Mozeley and Shinxley may look for food before I leave for work. But Mozeley is the one who hovers by when I am relaxing. (I know he is looking for treats, but humor me.) 

The comfort of cats is golden. 

 

One Cat Household: New Cat

my new cat Mozeley two cat householdWell, I gave in to the urge to add a new cat to the house. As I said in my previous post, my sleep was suffering from having just one cat. I was focussing on the monetary benefits of a single cat household. It was nice to pay less for litter, food, and pet insurance.  However, I have always owned two cats at a time. So, this was a challenge for me.

After two months of interrupted sleep, we are now a two cat household again. (Thank you!)

I have finally found my Black cat, Mozeley, who is a “love bug” and meows for me to pick him up for cuddling. He even tries to climb up my back as I am washing dishes (scared the hell out of me the first time).

Anyone who owns a cat understands that cats can be aloof and unaffectionate. Mozeley’s love of human affection is like a well-fitted bra (as a size DDD, a fitted bra is better than gold). As much as I love his affection, he serves a bigger purpose: he helps Shinxley (2.5 years and 2.5 pounds fatter) to live an active life. 

It is also nice to come home to 2 sets of bright eyes at the top of my stairs each day.
