Hey Pet Parents & Pet Lovers, This is not the post that I wanted to be writing today, however, today on January 7, 2019, we lost a dear member of our family. My partner always made fun of me when I got emotional when talking about how hard it would be to lose Blub, but I think tonight he truly understands how much Blub was part of our family. It may sound stupid to … [Read more...] about Saying Goodbye to Blub, Our Betta Fish. (Cw: Losing a Pet)
Hey Pet Parents & Pet Lovers, This week my partner has been extremely sick, meaning that he's been home all week. Although for me that means taking care of my partner and making sure that whatever he has doesn't get worse, it means the exact opposite for that cats. Kalista, in particular, has been very happy that my partner has been home. Even though she's starting to … [Read more...] about Our Kitties Are Spending All Of Their Time With Their Sick Daddy
Hey Pet Parents & Pet Lovers, You may not be aware, but I recently finished "renovating" my office. By this I mean we ended up painting all of the walls, scrubbing the floors clean and are in the process of making the office more soundproof so I can start recording music in it. Well, when it comes to soundproofing a recording space, a carpet tends to be a must... but … [Read more...] about Kalista, Our Cat, Is In Love With Our Carpet!
Hey Pet Parents & Pet Lovers, Have you ever noticed your cat is scared of a specific noise? You may already know that with Kalista it's the sound of strangers, or... well just about anything, but with Beau, it's oddly the sound of crinkling and plastic bags. A few days ago, as we were getting ready to leave, we put out Beau's food and started doing some last minute … [Read more...] about Beau, My Cat, Is Terrified of Plastic Bags
Hey Pet Parents & Pet Lovers, It has officially been 2 years since I started the Pets Overload blog and I cannot thank you enough for all of the support you have shown our family over the year. This year has been a huge one for our family especially with our new additions Kalista and Gary, as well as with the focus on writing some more serious articles since Beau got … [Read more...] about Thank You For An Amazing 2018!
Hey Pet Parents & Pet Lovers, Continuing to dive into old and now private YouTube videos, I found this adorable video of Walker as a kitten playing with his favourite feather toy. Walker was always a very playful and energetic cat, and although I don't know how much running he does now as an adult (since I don't get to spend too much time with him anymore), I'm sure he's … [Read more...] about Walker Playing With Feathers While He Was A Kitten (Cute Cat Video)
Hey Pet Parents & Pet Lovers, Today we're taking a break from posting, but I wanted to say happy, happy holidays for all of you who celebrate. We're currently heading out to see family and while we wanted to bring our cats (as we normally do), this year we're unfortunately not going to be able to bring them since it means a 2-hour subway ride... which would definitely … [Read more...] about Happy Holidays To All Of Our Readers!
Hey Pet Parents & Pet Lovers, I thought I would lighten the mood today by letting you know that Kalista is becoming more bonded with me now that I'm working from home again. I know a few months ago I mentioned the fact that Kalista was bonding with my partner much more than she was bonding with me, but I can happily say that that is no longer true. While she does do a … [Read more...] about Kalista is becoming a Daddy’s Girl (Cute Cat Story)
Hey Pet Parents & Pet Lovers, I don't often give updates about our Betta fish, especially because it can be hard to. A few months ago I wrote a piece that mentioned how excited I am for winter break because I would try to train Blub to do some awesome tricks, but I'm not too sure that's going to happen anymore. I've been keeping it a bit of a secret that Blub doesn't … [Read more...] about Trials With Blub (Update on Our Betta Fish)
Hey Pet Parents & Pet Lovers, While I was working on yesterday's article about the complications that could potentially happen when a cat goes through the Perineal Urethrostomy I got fairly triggered. While I dislike using the word "triggered" to describe my emotions, there's no better way to describe the immense sadness/angst I felt from reliving the moments before … [Read more...] about Being Extremely Grateful For My Cat’s Health (Cute Cat Story)
