Felines are finicky, but sometimes, they just surprise us with their choices. They love to sleep in boxes, play with paper towel holders, and yes, unroll the toilet paper. Here, my cat Lenny, abandons a nice cushy cat bed for a box, and seems happier than a cat in heaven.
Do your cats like to sleep in boxes? Do your cats like to play with anything that moves? Do you become disappointed when you spend a good chunk of change on something and your cat ignores it, only to play with the latest piece of cardboard or your latest black sweater you bought? Please weigh in on the discussion and share your thoughts.
Wordless Wednesday: Senior Cats are the best
Senior cats are handsome, snugly and lots of company. Here are
some photos of my senior kitties.
Do you have senior cats? What’s the favorite thing they do to keep you
entertained? Please weigh in and share your stories.
1. They give you unconditional love.
2. Your curtains won’t be destroyed by kittens scaling to the top on a daily basis.
3. They’ll snuggle for hours in your lap.
4. As they are more docile, you won’t be tripping over them on your way to the bathroom.
5. You’ll get a good night’s sleep as they won’t be chasing after the latest ‘toy’ in your bedroom.
6. When you watch your favorite TV show, you’ll have a constant companion on the sofa.
7. It’s easier to determine an older cat’s personality, making it easier to select the ideal match for you.
8. They make wonderful companions and can become your ideal soul-mate.
9. As they aren’t quite as quick as the little ones, they are less likely to dart out the door causing your hours of heart-ache as you scour the neighborhood looking for them.
10. Their gazing eyes, captivating purrs, and again, unconditional love, make them special.
Paws has found no two cats are alike. They all have their own particular personalities. Like people, they may have similarities, but they are far from the same. We share our household with two senior cats, and one, well, he’s moving from mature adult to senior. Wow, how the years fly by. It was only yesterday that the seniors were adopted, but then again 2001 was 13 years ago.

Wordless Wednesday: Kitties Pose for Pictures
Do your cats pose for pictures? Share your stories and weigh in on the discussion.
As we celebrate Veterans Day and all of the veterans who have served the United States to retain our freedom, Paws for Reflection takes a look at why cats are great companions for veterans.
1) The mere presence of a cat in a room can reduce stress, lower blood pressure, and create a sense of well-being.
2) Cats don’t care if you are stressed out.
3) Unconditional love goes with having a cat. They love you – no matter what.
4) Felines aren’t too concerned about what mood you are in, as long as they have plenty of food, water and snuggle time.
5) With their independent spirit, cats give you plenty of space and time alone.
6) Being relatively self-sufficient, cats are happy as long as they get the necessities and lots of tender loving care.
8) Cats don’t care what your financial or social status is.
9) Unlike people, cats don’t care what you look like, whether you are thin or portly, squeaky clean or unkempt. They want you for who you are.
10) And did we mention unconditional love, because that’s so huge, it deserves to be on this list twice.
Do you have a special veteran in your life? Do you think cats can help veterans and others, including those that might be a tad isolated? Please weigh in and share your thoughts.
