Emmi (kitty client) having a treat.
A little treat before bidding farewell 'til next time.
It's been a busy weekend with my grand-daughter's party, lots and lots of cat-sitting and I'm still in the midst of Spring house-cleaning and preparing the yard for flowers.
The sun is shining on this May 24th long-weekend. It has been beautiful. It's 'get your garden going' weather.
This is the weekend when we started gardens without the worry of frost, in the past. But, since we are two weeks behind in most Spring growth I think it might be best to wait 'til June 1st to put flowers in the ground.
I`m sticking to pots on the deck and around our apple tree for now.
I'm anxious to grow herbs again this year along the deck.
Rosemary on the island
Sunday dinner was roast chicken along with my favorite dish - stuffed zucchini.
Loaded up and covered with cheese.
Accompanied by warm whole wheat rolls from the oven.
Strawberry shortcake for dessert.
A wonderful Spring-time dinner.
Hope you had a fun and yummy weekend.
And I do hope you played and had fun with your pets, too.
Am I the only one this weekend that can say they watched fire-works with their cat? Annie and I were in the kitchen late last night when all of a sudden we heard a loud bang.
Annie's head swung around to see the fire-works across the street illuminate the sky.
She was mesmerized.
Just look at those cute little ears.
Our dear old dog, Kane would normally be terrified at the sound of fire-works but now that he has lost some hearing they don't bother him anymore. He slept right through them.
It's the one good thing about his hearing loss.
Do you play with your cat? In order to keep your cat happy and content you need to add fun and excitement to it's life. If your cat is an in-door only cat, it's important to PLAY together. Most in-door cats are bored and need some stimulation. Add a box or a big brown paper bag to it's area and roll a ball into it. Get down on the floor and play along with your cat while it enjoys it's new toy. Attach a feather to a stick and dangle it so the cat will jump. Exercise is so important for cats who are unable to climb trees and run free. I find a ping-pong ball really gets Audrey going if I bounce it down the hall or the stairs. Adding new toys to their stash once a month is something for them to discover and have fun with.
Spend time with your cat. They love it. And that's that.
Audrey..."That being said, I fail to find a new toy in my basket today."
"So sorry, Audrey. I'll get right on that."
