Eleven years ago, I wrote this about Tommy, who was still a kitten:
What I love about Tom Cullen: You know how some (well, MOST) cats will climb up on you, and then they’ll dither about as to whether they want to lay down on you, where they want to lay down on you, do they want to lay down on you, or NEXT to you? Well, not our Tom Cullen. He’s very self-assured and certain about everything he does. He jumps up on you, he lays down, he goes to sleep. No standing there looking around trying to decide what he wants to do. Gotta love the Tom Cullen.
That held true through his entire life – he was always a decisive snuggler, right up to the end. I sure do miss that wonderful boy and his brother.
Just a reminder that Selena – Mom to Hook (formerly Puff) and Flynn (formerly Kohle) is on Instagram and posts pictures of them regularly. It’s been fun watching them grow up!
That ‘Iva keeping an eye on me’ pic, I’m distracted by the silhouette behind her. It’s the Cat-Signal!
I wondered if anyone would notice that!
I have a question….anyone got tips for keeping litter from migrating all over the house? I have only hardwood and tile. I do have mats under and in front of the litter boxes. I sweep DAILY!!!
Kathy from Nova Scotia said: I keep an under-the-bed size plastic storage box next to the litter box. my 2 cats are diggers and flingers so it helps keep down the mess. the open bin just gets dumped out back into the litter box. though one kitty always tries to leap over the bin.
I have chenille rugs (like these – the “runner” size) under the litter boxes that do a really good job of containing the litter (and they’re washable!) I don’t know that there’s anything that’ll take away the need for a quick sweep every morning (at least in my house), though!
Y’all have suggestions? I’d love to hear ’em!
Ok… Has anyone checked out Jet? I just bought a 5 lb bag of Wellness Core kitten food and a 40 lb bag of Dr. Elsey’s Precious Cat litter for a grand total of $33.43 tax, title out the door. I got a better deal there than I would over at Chewy. I was shocked. Free shipping level is lower, also. I love Chewy, don’t get me wrong…but each item was cheaper and they have discounts right now and a coupon code TRIPLE15 to get an additional 15% off your first THREE orders.
The cost of the 5 lb bag is just a bit over the cost of a 2 lb bag at PetSmart. The 5 lb bag isn’t even available at PetSmart ( in store).
I’ve heard of Jet, but hadn’t checked it out. Obviously I need to. Thanks for the tip!
Charleston, concerned. About what? Who knows?
