Answer Your Cat’s Questions Day

      2 Comments on Answer Your Cat’s Questions Day

I do not identify as a crazy cat lady.  I only have 3 cats AND I have a husband (crazy cat ladies don’t have husbands).  That being said, I was more excited than I probably should be when I learned about today- Answer your cat’s questions day. I have a pretty good idea what questions my cats have had.  And… Read more »

As I’ve mentioned at previous posts (see here http://www.beckypalmer.me/2016/08/black-cat-appreciation-day/    and here  http://www.beckypalmer.me/2017/08/black-cat-appreciation-day-again/  )  Black Cat Appreciation day is on August 17th.   As I’ve also mentioned many many times  I currently share my home with three black beauties – Hershey, the geriatric, crabby one who hated me for years and now begrudgingly accepts my existence; Pumpkin, my sweet girl and “cover model”… Read more »

Almost all of us have fold memories of a pet who is no longer with us, so this is a day that can touch us all. There is a lovely poem, author unknown about a place called the Rainbow Bridge, essentially a heaven for well-loved pets.  You can find it all over the internet, including here: https://www.rainbowsbridge.com/Poem.htm Deborah Barnes is a… Read more »

Hug your Cat!

      No Comments on Hug your Cat!

Even a first time visitor to Knotty Things will notice a feline motif.   Even my logo, which I helped design, highlights my love of kitties.  So, today I’m combining my weekly musings with my weekly fun holiday post because today is Hug Your Cat day! Now, there are some folks out there who do not believe that hugging a cat… Read more »

Pet Day

Today is Pet Day! As you know from my posts (if not my logo), I love cats.  I currently share my home with 3 black beauties- Hershey, Pumpkin (yes, she’s black) and Boots.  All three of these fur kids came into my life in different ways- Hershey was my husband’s cat before he and I got married, Pumpkin came from… Read more »

Operation Add 3rd Cat Is a Success!

      No Comments on Operation Add 3rd Cat Is a Success!

It’s been almost 6 months since we welcomed Boots into our home and I’m pleased to let everyone know that Operation Add Third Cat is a success! No, we don’t have kitties holding paws and meowing Kumbaya together, but the hissing and the growling is virtually nonexistent and we’ve even caught all 3 of them sleeping on our bed together… Read more »

Black Cat Appreciation Day Again!

      No Comments on Black Cat Appreciation Day Again!

It’s Black Cat Appreciation day today! Yes, I commemorated this day last year but it bears repeating.  Black cats are the least likely to be adopted out of shelters and way too many people still fear them. I currently share my home with 3 black cats (And yes, they are getting along better all the time). So I can tell… Read more »

Operation Add Third Cat Update

      No Comments on Operation Add Third Cat Update

I’ve had quite a few folks ask me how things are going now that it’s been a couple months since we added Boots to our family. I am happy to report that for the most part things are going quite well.  Boots and Pumpkin still aren’t the BFFs we’d (perhaps foolishly) hoped they would be, but they have learned to… Read more »
