Humans are silly

Jasper and Layla here. We have catnapped the blog for a few minutes to have a rant.  Humans are silly, in fact they are downright weird, and frankly, a bit annoying sometimes. We honestly don’t think that they really actually understand us cats, even though they like to think they do.  For example, this week […]

Pet insurance, do you or don’t you?

We are an animal filled household (you would never guess, from our blog name, would you?) Our main pets our are cats, Layla and Jasper. Layla has some long term health issues that we see a vet for, due to her FIP diagnosis, but miraculously, is healthy and happy (well, she isn’t happy, she’s a […]

The things we do for our pets…

It’s funny, being a pet owner, in many ways is very much like being a parent and they sometimes can need TLC and care, that means a bit of extra work for us. The things we have to do for our pets, sometimes, are a little surprising but we do them, because we love them […]

Thinking about getting a dog?

As you will know if you read my blog on a regular basis, I am a cat person. My family only has cats and fish, no dogs. However, a friend of mine recently told me that her children had been pestering her for a dog. This got me thinking about what parents who are considering […]

Cats are NOT stupid…

 If you read our blog at all, or follow us on any social media, you know that we have two cats. We love our kitties and are firmly convinced, like most pet owners that they are the cutest, prettiest and funniest creatures. It’s a bit like parenting. Of course you think your child (or pet) […]

A few of Layla’s pet hates….

Dear Human… You shall not brush my teeth!

The vet apparently thinks you need to be brushing my teeth, every day. The vet is clearly deluded and has no idea how strong my will is, how hard I can bite, or how sharp my claws are. Why he thinks that I would let you grab me, wrap me in a towel, then prize […]
