Stop and take a deep breath. Can you feel it in your whiskers? Yes, that’s the cool air of Fall puffing up your fur so you walk around looking like the King of your castle. And why not? Read More
Meowvelous Monday Haiku
It’s no surprise that we love sunflowers. After all, it’s included as part of the Chirpy Cats brand with me, your social facilitator Mr. Jack as the mascot. (Good choice humans!) And that’s because every year in late Summer we look forward to these audacious late bloomers that light up the Chirpy Cats garden. Sunflowers never fail to delight with their optimism and their bold sunny cheery faces that seem to shout “hello!” each time you pounce by.
But there’s something else that makes these protagonists of the Chirpy Cats garden so welcome.
What do you think is the purrfect getaway for your cat?
Your imagination may be running wild, thinking of places where there are endless fields of catnip with birds swooping overhead and sinful amounts of cat treat buffets! But you may be getting ahead of yourself there. I’m thinking more local, you know, just a home away from home, a place to relax for a few hours, catch some sun, not too far away from my food bowl. Just maybe a few feet away. Yes, I’m a simple cat, not asking much. In fact, like most cats, we pretty much make ourselves comfortable everywhere we happen to stamp our paw prints with our little jellybeans you love so much. Read More

When life hands you icicles, make an icicle crunch sundae.
It’s Ollie here and I’m presenting this week’s Meowvelous Monday Haiku. We’re in a cold snap at the moment but I don’t let that freeze my lifestyle. I spent a good portion of yesterday chasing icicles. It’s quite fun actually and pretty soon I had my pals join in the fun too. My brother Baggy was a little miffed that he didn’t start it first. After all, he is the king of testing gravity. Read More
Nothing feels as good
As a leap into freedom
From winter’s shackles
I’m feeling revitalized and supercharged after a long winter. I’m ready to get moving and exploring. I don’t care if they say there’s more snow to come, just let me enjoy this moment here and now. Very soon the vine buds will show and the scent will be irresistible. This is my space. This is the Vine Corner. Read More
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 a human’s daily lamenting about things like Mondays, traffic, bosses, and bills. Read More
Summer is not over until the lady with the golden crown has sung her sweet cheery song of delight and optimism. Yes, the sunflowers have finally shown their bright vibrant faces and we are loving it!
