Pet Blogging Friday

Pet Blogging Friday

1:35 PM

Another Friday, another picture. My cat was sport enough to provide candid moments that were snap worthy this week. The best would have been her playing "Hungry Hippo" if my daughter didn't freak out before I got the time to click the camera. If you follow me on Twitter or on Facebook, you probably already know this is one of these great picture that will never happen.

Fortunately, Mittens is still functional in this heat and willing to get into all kind of things (my dog is just flat on the ground wishing for better and cooler days).

I caught Mittens (or as I call her, Mimi) claiming my study's paper bin :




I don't know if you think like I do, but doesn't she have a "What do you mean it is a dustbin???" Kind of look about herself. Like all cats, she has a thing for boxes, baskets and bags, and will get into them any chances she gets.


On other news, we survived another week of Summer and back to School is a month away. Ishita is going insane, and so am I, along with probably a solid half of Mumbai's population.
Right now I a, not really sure which song should be the soundtrack of my daily life: "I will survive" by Gloria Gaynor or "I'm going slightly mad" by Queen.

    1. She keeps herself clean indeed. My husband who was never much of a cat person and has zero experience with them was amazed at how little she smells and how neat she keeps herself. Our dog is obviously much more high maintenance :-)

    2. I am really thinking about getting a pet cat since you adopted mimi and I have read so many posts about her. I always thought cats were not loyal like dogs and would escape if doors were opened only to never return to my vegetarian household. Tell me if there s truth in my concern....btw I have no experience with pets in general or cats in particular

    3. Cats are independant, and can be very aloof.
      If you plan to adopt one, bear in mind that unlike dog, a cat can't survive on a vegetarian diet at all. They absolutely need meet to eat because that is the only way they can get a thing called "taurine" which is absolutely vital to them. So as long as you have no problem having non veg cat food in the house it is fine.
      You will need to keep kitty indoor until she is acclimated to her surrounding before you let her roam around. My grand Ma had cats that would spend as much time indoor as they would outdoor, when they were out, they would roam the neighbourhood a lot, and occasionally got into fight with other cats. But they would always come home for food. I think my grand ma kepts a litter box in her basement for those rainy days when her cats didn't feel like going poo poo outside, they rarely used it.
      In apparetement, of course cats rely on the litter tray for their natures call, and that is amazingly simple to train them. It is just a matter of showing them the box once and they will only go there. Your only job will have to be to clean said tray regularly and replace the sand every two weeks or so.
