How to Train your Cat to be a Tree Hugger

Last updated August 11th, 2020

When your cat won’t use his scratching post or cat tree you may feel at your wit’s end. But perk up, because cats love learning, especially when the learning involves something that they were born to do. There are ways to turn your indifferent cat into a tree hugger.

I am a bit of a tree hugger. I cannot see a world without trees. I have pleasant memories of my childhood climbing our mango and avocado trees with my gangly long limbs trying to maneuver as high as I could. I felt happy and free like I could do anything, perched like a happy cat in a tree.

How to Make this Irresistible Spring Grass Oasis Lounge for Your Cat

Last updated January 26th, 2020

As the cats crunch on their delicious grass bucket at their newly decorated Spring Oasis lounge, I am reminded of how important it is to offer new and exciting textures that are attractive to cats. Sensory enrichment for your cats is just as vital to his well-being as any other form of enrichment.

Overflowing with a myriad of textures and smells, the Spring Oasis Cat Lounge offers an attractive space to explore, drink, hunt and relax after a long winter.

South African Tails of Whiskers in the Heart of Cape Town Suburbs

Last updated February 13th, 2020

So there I was on the other side of the world, enjoying breakfasts on the beaches, sunset mountain hikes and whiskers on my face. Yes, cats featured frequently on my vacation and their omnipresence was welcomed. While the Chirpy Cats spent many expeditions in a snowy catio back home in Canada, I did a fair bit of hobnobbing with Cape Town cats from all walks of life! From pampered little furry darlings living the good life, to the UWC Campus cats, cat cafe cats and TUFCAT Sanctuary cats!

Meowvelous Monday Haiku: Follow in my floofsteps

Last updated January 6th, 2020

cat in the snow

Hello there! I’m Jimmy Fancy Feet and I’m presenting the first Meowvelous Monday Haiku after quite a long absence. Ask the Lady Cat, it’s all her fault. It’s a long story involving her traipsing off to some faraway Land in the Southern Hemisphere where they don’t have snow! No snow? If you ask me that’s no fun at all!

A New Year, A Fresh Purrspective

Last updated January 5th, 2019

It’s that time of the year again when we’re making New Year’s resolutions. Not a fan. Instead, I like affirmations. Because life is like a cat, unpredictable, fast-moving and a little wild. It’s fluid and ever-changing so we need to be open to shift our focus and reboot, which may result in a new and fresh purrspective or a completely different pathway than the one you’ve chosen.

And that’s okay.

Monday cativities at the watering hole

Meowvelous Monday Haiku with Sly Pie

When the cat grass is looking a little leggy and you’ve chugged all the water a kitty can possibly drink, it’s time to get serious with these three suspicious looking snowmen. They’ve been lurking around our watering hole  for a week now.  I haven’t quite put my paw on it, but there’s something odd about them, almost sinister. It’s just a kitty sense.  Read More
