Mickey: I was here first, Rufus.
Rufus: And that matters why?
It’s been a long cold Winter here in Connecticut and our old electric cat mat has been in constant and sometimes disputed use.
When Maya from Art of Paws wrote to offer a new larger, thicker mat for review, we said yes!
How did she know that Mickey Mouser and Rufus the Red are professional mattress testers?
And a young cat’s fancy turns to chomping on house plants…
That’s when we decided it was time to plant another crop of kitty grass.
Here’s Rufus tamping down moistened potting soil.
Rufus the Red here, reporting from Maggie’s studio where we have been hard at work drawing the illustrations for coloring books.
Yes, that picture was taken on the first official day of Spring, not that Mother Nature pays any attention to the calendar…
By the way, that’s a garden ornament in the background – not a real cat!
Usually there is a card hanging on each cage that describes the cat within, but in this case, there was only the word “Gravy”.
We were asked if we’d like to try out PetSafe’s Cheese Cat Toy. When they found out we wanted to bring the toys to PAWS, they generously sent us two for the shelter cats and one for our Mickey Mouser and Rufus the Red! Plus they offered to sponsor a give away.
As you can see, my cats were fascinated. Now, on to PAWS…
Meanwhile, back at our house, Mickey Mouser is emerging from hibernation.
Is it safe to come out yet?
He’s our sweet boy because:
When he was a kitten, a lot of people worked to rescue him from the streets where he would have had a short and difficult life.
PAWS provided him with gentle and thorough veterinary care, but didn’t have the room to take him in.
We fostered him, until we realized that he was our cat and we were his people. It didn’t take long to come to that excellent decision!
