I'm going to precursor this post by saying, there's going to be bouts of sadness inside of it as this is our first Christmas that we experience without Beau. Admittedly, things feel extremely different for us without Beau and the grief process has been long and difficult, often leading my husband and I to burst into tears throughout the day. The oddest part about the grief … [Read more...] about Meet Our Newest Cat Aramis
I've always been aware that my cats' behaviour continuously changes throughout the years and at first I was afraid that I would always have difficulty bonding with our youngest cat, Kalista. Kalista is the third cat in my immediate life, but similar to Walker, our personalities didn't really fit each other at first. Kalista was always a scardy cat who didn't … [Read more...] about Kalista, Our Cat, Always Wants to Sleep Hugging Me
Hello everyone! I'm hoping you all had a brilliant start to your new year and that you're either settled in or almost settled into your routines and schedules. I know things have been a bit of a hurricane in the Pets Overload family, which explains the lack of posts, but since I have today off I thought I would give you a proper fill-in on our lives. As some of you … [Read more...] about Taking Both Cats to the Vet & Update on Beau’s PU Surgery 2 Years Later
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)
Since adopting our youngest cat, Kalista, no cardboard box that enters our apartment is safe. For example, we've had a box of floorboards in our living room since we moved in and Kalista has chipped at the box slowly finally exposing what the planks look like. I swear, if we didn't open our packages immediately, she would open them for us like a kid on Christmas … [Read more...] about Why Does My Cat Chew Cardboard Boxes? Is it Normal?
It's no secret that our youngest, Kalista, is a big attention seeker. Although Kalista is not much of a cuddler or a cat who likes to be held, she does love lots of belly rubs and every so often wants... well no... demands to sit in your lap even if you're busy working. Throughout the day Kalista will follow me around the apartment, come into a room and headbutt me. and if I … [Read more...] about My Cat Wants Too Much Attention. Is That Normal? Is It Okay?
Just over a year ago my partner and I decided to take the jump into adopting a second cat. Our first cat, Beau, had recently gone through a life-changing operation and we had moved into an apartment that actually allowed cats in it. We agreed that we were going to try to find a young female cat to make sure that Beau didn't feel threatened. Although what comes … [Read more...] about Happy 2nd Birthday to My Cat Kalista!
Hey Pet Parents & Pet Lovers, This weekend we got a package from one of our friends who we met through the Forgotten Ones Cat Rescue. Our friend Michelle is a very talented individual who makes cat toys during her spare time. Michelle actually gifted us two adorable catnip infused kicker toys in the shape of a carrot and baguette during the holiday season. … [Read more...] about Kalista Can’t Choose Between Her New Favourite Toys (Adorable Cat Video)
Hey Pet Parents & Pet Lovers, I haven't been spending as much time taking photos of our pets as of late and I've really missed it. The cats haven't been super active as of late, but they have been lounging around me for the hours that I am home with them. Each of them choosing to take one of the many beds we have laid out for them. This week, Beau has been more … [Read more...] about Taking Close Ups of My Cats Chilling Around the House (Cute Cat Photos)
Hey Pet Parents & Pet Lovers, Sometimes I feel like my cats are growing and changing daily, especially Kalista. And though I've been part of 4 kittens lives, I feel like Kalista has done the most changing and growing in the shortest amount of time. Now, that might just be because I'm actually able to document Kalista's life on Pets Overload, unlike when Walker … [Read more...] about Kalista Is Changing up Her Habits (Cute Cat Story & Photos)
