Ever take a look at your cat and think to yourself, did you just grow? I know there have been plenty of times that I've looked at our youngest cat, Kalista, and wondered to myself "did you ever grow to your full size or are you still growing?" Even though Kalista is over two years old, she is still fairly small in size and quite frankly she's smaller than all of the … [Read more...] about When Is a Cat Full Grown?

It's been a while since I last had the opportunity to chase the cats around the apartment and get photos of them doing the things they do best (which pretty much means watching them lay around and do nothing!) (This blog is going to feature all the photos I took of Beau since there were way too many of all of the pets to upload into one post. Much more to come!) This past … [Read more...] about Leaving Our Cats & Chinchilla with My Mother for over a Week (Loads of Cute Cat Photos)
Whenever you draw a cat what's one part of the cat you never forget to draw? Probably their adorable little noses and their even cuter whiskers. Something you may not know is that cats actually have whiskers on more places than just their noses. Cats have whiskers above their eyes, on their chins, and on their front legs. Whiskers are essential to every cat. Simply put, … [Read more...] about Why Do Cats Lose Their Whiskers? Is Something Wrong?
These past two weekends my partner and I have been taking steps to make our apartment more homely and well... more organized! I would be a liar if I ever said that we fully moved in when we moved almost a year ago, especially because some of our things were still in boxes, lots of things didn't have homes to live in, and truthfully both of us were fairly embarrassed … [Read more...] about Kalista Has a New Favourite Place to Spend the Day (Cute Cat Story)
I can't think of anyone who doesn't love a beautiful garden filled with a large array of colours. Although we don't currently have a garden, my partner and I have dreamed up what our garden would look like if we ever do get the opportunity to buy a house. I wouldn't say that many folks think about whether or not the things they are planting are safe for the neighbourhood … [Read more...] about Are Sunflowers Toxic to Cats? Are They Poisonous?
If you're anything like me, you're a food lover who can't fathom people or pets who refuse to eat. I'm definitely someone who loves food even to the fault of wanting to eat food even when I'm not hungry anymore. So, to me, I can't relate to a pet or person who refuses to eat; unless they are sick and physically can't eat. When we adopted our youngest cat, Kalista, we had our … [Read more...] about My Cat Won’t Eat! What Do I Do?
Shortly after taking in Gary, our chinchilla, we unsurprisingly started hearing sounds and noises we've never heard before. Being that adopting a chinchilla wasn't originally thought out or planned, we didn't actually know a whole lot about the species or even what the most common questions or concerns regarding chinchillas were. So, when we heard Gary make noises like barking … [Read more...] about Why Do Chinchillas Bark? Identifying Chinchilla Sounds
I'll happily be the first to admit that my cats have some of the weirdest habits and quirks. Kalista, for example, has a huge obsession with cardboard and will often be found shredding our cardboard boxes to pieces. Beau, on the other hand, will chew on just about anything and everything if he's in the mood for it. When we first adopted Beau I found it fairly … [Read more...] about Why Do Cats Chew on Plastic?

Hey Pet Parents & Pet Lovers, Been a while since I've said that, eh? As you may have gathered from my lack of updates and posts in general, I've had a very busy month. Between sound designing a show, recording and releasing new music and just trying to function as a human... I've found myself out of the house more than I wish I was. It's a luxury to be … [Read more...] about Gary, Our Chinchilla, Loves Dog Toys! (Cute Chinchilla Story & Video)
Since adopting our youngest cat, Kalista, we've noticed she has an obsession with our feet. Anytime we take off our shoes she's immediately sniffing them and sometimes we find her sleeping in our shoes throughout the day. Kalista seems to find enjoyment playing with shoelaces, sticking her full face into our shoes and kicking the shoes around the apartment. Sometimes … [Read more...] about Why Do Cats like Feet?
