Wake Up Sleepy Head!
Every morning starts off with Beau waking up right beside me. The little bugger hates sleeping alone and can be often found spooning either me or Kenny. Beau is extremely affectionate, but also wild 😉
Let out that yawn you wild puma, you!
Beau makes it very difficult to want to wake up in the morning. He’s the cat you want to spend hours snuggling in bed with. He has a very distinct purr that resonates throughout his body, which is Kenny’s favourite part about him. My favourite thing about waking with Beau is how close he sleeps to me. Beau knows no boundaries, so he’s usually sleeping right next to my face or he’s playing little spoon if Kenny isn’t home.
Working With Daddy
I primarily work from home. A lot of my day is spent writing or editing shows I’m working on, or working on clients advertising campaigns. This gives me plenty of time to spoil Beau, but it also gives him the opportunity to give me to tell me his pro tips (’cause c’mon he basically runs this blog!) Although he probably wouldn’t admit it… Beau does spend most of the time we could be brainstorming napping… but I don’t mind since he’s usually purring in my lap being all sweet and cute <3. Beau is the best companion anyone could ask for.

First “Meal” of the Day
Around noon Beau gets pretty restless and wants to eat, so I give him a nice helping of Nummy Tum Tum’s Organic Pumpkin. It has been such a big life saver. It has been making sure he stays regular (especially since we’ve had to switch his food recently.) The pumpkin is great, especially because Beau isn’t a huge fan of wet food, and we’d like to get as much liquid in him as possible.
This week we’ve also started giving him some Fruitables Beef Broth Bowls which he is absolutely loving! I’m actually thinking about making our own broth for Beau as well to see if he will like it. Again, if we can get him to drink more, we’re happy! We have a few fountains laid around the house which he uses quite frequently, but who actually knows how much he needs to drink? I was SURE he was getting enough water (as he visits the fountains every hour or so to get his intake) but every kitty is unique, plus it also depends on the food you’re feeding them.

First Playing Session of the Day
Around 3PM, my partner starts heading home from work. This means I have to start cooking dinner, which means lots of waiting while food is in the oven. So, why not play with Beau? Beau plays for about 30-minutes with me before I have to start the next cooking task. Right now Beau’s favourite toy is Da Bird. This is the first time we buy a toy that he hasn’t stopped playing with after a few months. We don’t even have to hide it for a few weeks to keep his interest with it, so I’m happy that he’s loving it. I actually grabbed a video of him playing with it and will team it up with a review as soon as I can. (I saw the post Beau wrote about me being too busy for him again… *sigh* being a human is hard, eh?)
Second Meal of the Day
At 5PM, Beau currently gets fed a 1/4th cup of Science Diet C/D Chicken which is doing really well with him, minus the fact that he needs to eat a lot more of it and is pretty hungry. That’s one of the reasons we like to spread his food out (and it’s also helpful to keep this little guy’s moderated since he tends to gain weight very quickly.
After Beau eats, he sleeps inside of his favourite basket. Sometimes, if we’re lucky enough, Beau will sit in our laps as we play video games. (Yes, Beau’s daddies are very nerdy and love their video games to stop stressing out because of their very busy schedules.)
Second Play Date
Now that daddy #2 is home and has finished playing his video games, Beau gets some time to play with him. Daddy #2 really likes using feather toys with Beau. Beau likes these toys second best, but that doesn’t mean he likes his other daddy second best! Beau will play with this toy for around 15-minutes before he wants to eat again. :’) What a little tubster!
Final Meal of the Day
Beau gets fed his second 1/4th cup at 10PM. This usually lasts him until the morning (as he’s much too excited to join us in bed.) Beau will eat for a few minutes until…
Cuddling with Daddies!
Our favourite thing with Beau is the fact that he loves to get into bed with us. He can commonly be found at our feet, or trying to squeeze between us. Walker used to do this with me when we first adopted him, but by the time he turned one… well… he decided he was too good for me! We’re so glad that Beau hasn’t given up on cuddling with us, and we hope he continues to for the rest of his life. We love you Beau!
So Pet Parents, what are your little one’s days like? Let me know below!
