Amy and I discussed her sharing a tale about one of her cats. Since she had written a post about one of them recently, we decided I would just share her story by reblogging it here on my blog. This is a great post that includes pictures and a video. Love it!
Thank you Amy for sharing your story with me. I am SO happy Cuddles ran out of the barn that day for you guys to find. I wonder why he became aggressive after being so cuddly?
I also believe in brushing our pet’s teeth, so I would love to hear what kind of tool you use to get the tartar off of his teeth!
This tale was shared by Amy, a fellow blogger who participated in “Tuesday Tale-What Is Your Pet’s Tale?”. If you would like to participate, click the “Tuesday Tales” tab on my blog for details.
(The tale of Cuddles is also posted on the “November Tuesday Tale” page)
This video of Cuddles is something that happens every day. You can hear from my voice a bit of exasperation because just as I have completely cleaned up in the kitchen for the morning (every morning), in walks Cuddles for more food. *sigh* And yes I know I recently posted a video of Cuddles and Rusty playing. What can I tell you? I have no control of what is going to happen especially with these cats. At least in this video you will see another side to Cuds Cuds. I do have several more videos that I plan on posting of other cats that live in this house too. (smile)
Cuddles is persistent and consistent if nothing else. When he wants to eat, nothing is going to get him to stop to do whatever it takes to get me to feed him. He is a 12-year old male rescued barn…
It started last night when I was going through the Newsfeed on Facebook and I saw a post headline and picture about a dog that was abused so badly they said he screamed like a human being when they were approaching him to rescue him. The police officer involved in rescuing him was so moved by this that he has made it his mission to go after the abusers. That is as far as I got. I couldn’t open the post and read it. I was already breaking down. It was the first thing I thought of when I woke up this morning and again I was breaking down.
Most of my posts on Facebook are shared from my blog entries and I know not all of my family & friends are stopping and reading them as they scroll through their Newsfeed. Some people cannot handle seeing or hearing about animal suffering. I am not judging, I get it. I can barely hold it together.
I‘ve seen other images & headlines of elephants on chains, a guy throwing a brick at a dog, a tore up dog from a dogfight. It just goes on and on. Then I start feeling like it is all so overwhelming and I start wondering how I can be making any difference? There are so many animals suffering and I want it all to stop. I wonder if one day this will completely break my spirit.
You’re so excited to bring home a new kitten or cat. Your child has been asking for one forever and you finally decide to go for it. Before you do, take the time to be prepared. Being prepared will make it easier on you and your new furry friend.
Peteducation.com has a great article that can walk you through some steps to be prepared. Here is one quote from the article:
“You will be taking your cat out of a familiar environment, putting him into a noisy, moving vehicle, then expecting him to adjust to new surroundings, new people and perhaps, new animals. This is a lot to ask, and no matter how wonderful you and your home are, even the most easy-going cat is likely to be stressed and nervous.”
I just joined Facebook. I wanted to share it with you and ask that you please “Like” my page. Also, feel free to share my Facebook and my Blog with people you know. You will be helping animals by doing this. The more people who are aware of issues, the more we can all help make a difference!
This just shows the loyalty animals feel for their family. There’s a great movie about this. If you haven’t seen it, check out Hachi. This is a movie based on a true story about the relationship between a dog and a man. I don’t want to give away what happens, but the dog feels extreme love and loyalty for this man. Check it out!
