All You Need is a Catloaf of Love

 valentines day catloaf

Catloafing is one of the most versatile of cat positions.

Cats loaf when they’re super relaxed and can still remain attentive to the world around them, especially when snoopervising their human’s tasks from the cat tree or the computer keyboard. They can even fall asleep while loafing and it’s the most adorable thing in the world.

There are many good things about a catloaf. It’s soft and silky to the touch, which helps relieve stress. It also comes with a built-in motor which is activated when squeezed gently and has the most soothing sound that will cure your insomnia. You know the day is going to be good when you wake up to a warm freshly baked catloaf or two on your pillow.  Read More

Scratching Post Love Notes From An Old Couple

They couldn’t be more different. She with her slim athletic build and long Bengal limbs, agile light-footed paws and non-stop chatter, Sarabi has no mute button. Earl Grey, on the other hand, will charm you with his almost silent meow, sometimes manifesting as a raspy croak or squeak, one of his most endearing traits. While she would flit about like a paper kite, he is never in any hurry to go anywhere, even in his youth.

Earl Grey and Sarabi have known each other all their lives and are longtime cuddle buddies. You will not see the one sleeping without the other. Whether they are spooning, lying in yin-yang position or just grooming, these two oldies will make their space on the couch each evening. But for a couple that is so bonded they have always had their ‘arguments.’ I don’t think he likes it when she screams her head off while running up and down the stairs playing fetch with her mouse. In fact, he would often intercept her game by biting her on her neck as if to say “Be quiet or I stop your game!” Funnily she would heed his request and continue the game without a peep. Read More

Monday Haiku: Say it Simply With Affirmations

Charlie takes that step forward

We don’t do New Year’s resolutions – it’s a heavy burden that can weigh you down. Now not to burst your resolution bubble at all, we do have an alternative pathway that allows for more fluidity. Because life is not stagnant. Sometimes your goals need to shift gears too and may steer you in a different direction.

Instead, we like to use affirmations, because it’s evolving, shifting and changing according to whatever life’s tide washes your way. Affirmations will allow you to reach your goals, trailing along many pathways while keeping it crystal clear. But all these pathways lead to your end goal, and before you know it you’ve accomplished your goal, hey wait…. you’ve actually made a resolution and stuck to it, without even knowing it! Read More

Holiday Sunday Selfies with Charlie, Brrrrrr!

Amidst the holiday rush of the last few weeks, there were two things that put a smile on my face. One was undoubtedly my cats who make me smile every day. Especially my older 16-year-old cat, Earl Grey, who reminds me to live in the moment and cherish those 5-minute bonding brushings before leaving for work. And the other was receiving so many cute cards from cats and dogs around the globe. And then the e-cards came flooding in too! We loved each and every one of it and would like to say thank you to all of you! Read More

How to unbox your Secret Paws without the fur flying

You know you hit the jackpot when you receive your package from your Secret Paws and there’s something for everyone to sink their claws into. We were super delighted by the wonderful gifts we received and would like to thank Summer, The Therapy Cat and her friends Binga and Boodie, from Sparkle Cat. Our gift box had a variety of toys for all tastes and included something for the chewers, the kickers, the chicken treat lovers and even a cute little key ring for the human!

Secret Paws is a Holiday Gift Exchange for cats around the globe and this pawsome gift exchange pawty is coordinated by the kind-hearted and magnanimous Paula from Sweet Purrfections. This is our first year participating in the fun and below Mr. Jack, our peacekeeper and CCSF (Chief Chirpy Social Facilitator) gives you his list of unboxing tips to keep unruly kitties in check so that it’s fun for everyone.

5 Toxic holiday plants to avoid when you have cats

Holidays are upon us and with so much going on we may forget that sometimes the things we bring into our homes may be harmful to our pets. Decorative ornaments, tinsel, needles from live Christmas trees and of course the popular holiday plants.

This is a guest post from Pedro, Editor-in-Chief at We’re All About Cats

Monday Haiku: The Pathway to Purrfection

Hello furriends! Happy Monday from me, Mr. Jack. If you know anything about me, you know that my main tasks here at the Chirpy household is to keep the peace and spread the communal scent through grooming everyone in my path, heck, even human feet. But that is not the only reason I groom. I also like to groom my coat to keep it in tip-top shape for my selfies. I like my fur and whiskers all in place. But there comes a time when striving for perfection can become stifling, exhausting and rather energy-draining. In today’s haiku, I leave you with my eye-opening realization as I lay on a bed of Autumn leaves… Read More

Strut your stuff for TockTober Day

It was October 2016 when I first came across TockTober hashtags and wondered what all the fuss was about. There were tocks of all kinds, shapes, sizes, and floofiness and we were amazed. This year we didn’t want to miss out on the fun so we gave you a little sneak preview of Jimmy’s tocks, walking down the catio catwalk. Read More

Caturday Voodle: The Paw Confrontation

If you’ve been following our series Scratching Post Secrets Revealed, perhaps you will remember our debut episode about Ollie’s scratching post sticky note he left for Charlie. He wasn’t happy about Charlie supposedly stealing his treats. Well, this week we interrupt our Caturday Doodle series and follow up with a quick Voodle about Ollie’s expression of displeasure at Charlie’s pilfering ways. Ollie felt his sticky note message fell on deaf ears so he decided to confront the issue, paw on. Read More

Scratching Post Secrets Revealed Week #2

Cats Scratch Their Sticky Note Texts

Cat siblings have an awful lot to say to each other. In last week’s Caturday Doodle, Ollie made it known that he was not happy with Charlie taking all the treats so he left a kitty sticky note text on the scratching post, as cats do. We thought it would be fun to gather some sticky notes from other cats too and we were happy to see the sticky notes from all sorts of opinionated and disgruntled kitties pouring in.

Monday Haiku: Fall, A Tortie’s Best Friend

Hello, it’s Scout here and I present this week’s Marvelous Monday Haiku. Fall is my favorite time of the year because I like to collect leaves and bring them inside for the Big Man Cat while he works. I think he appreciates the sentiment. My job as interior decorator is made so much easier too because the catio is one messy jungle with an array of different colored leaves ranging from the rich chartreuse of the Kolomikta Kiwi vine to the browns and reds from the tree. Some really stoic, cheery sunflowers are still out and have not given up and the heady scent from the purple catmint blooms gives Mr. Jack sunset zoomies in the tunnel.

Caturday Voodle: Scout the Tough Tortie confesses her weakness

There’s nothing better in life than being a tough tortie like me. Let me tell you, Mr. Jack may rule the Chirpies but try as he may, he cannot overpower me. I’m tough as nails!

Sunday Selfie: Sweet Jelly beans and other assorted flavors

They’re soft, oval, smooth and come in a variety of assorted hues, such as pink, black and chocolate. When we look at them, we might be forgiven for thinking they’re sweet. They’re neatly embedded in and surrounded by what seems to be a floof of cotton candy in a rich variety of colors. In some cases there’s more floof than beans! If you’re just as obsessed with kitty bean toes as we are, you would have gathered by now that we’re not talking about a bag of candies or licorice allsorts, we’re talking about kitty jelly beans!

Hello furriends! We are happy to introduce our first Caturday Voodle and we hope you like it!

What the cat is a #caturdayvoodle, you may ask?

As we always insist that our voices be heard, our Caturday Voodles also include our unique voices too! So there you have it, that’s a Caturday Voodle!

Changing routines: How to pet more and stress less

Marvelous Monday Haiku with Scout

Hello, friends, I’m Scout the feisty tortie and I present today’s Marvelous Monday Haiku. When you don’t have to go to school or work there’s nothing much to worry about other than where to find the best sun puddles at 10 am, why Charlie seems to get special food and why yellow fluffy bees bother me while I’m trying to take a snooze. I know these woes, though real, pale in comparison to human’s daily lamenting about things like Mondays, traffic, bosses, and bills. Read More
