For some people it's dogs, for others fish, birds and even reptiles, for us, it's cats. Like so many others, we are drawn to these felines' silly and curious personalities, so much so that we now have four of these furry creatures running around our house. Low maintenance (no potty-walking), funny, and oftentimes sweet, our four cats unwittingly entertain us all day with their antics and tireless play. Although we have to constantly suffer through fur in our faces and scratch-covered furniture, we simply cannot imagine life anymore without our little companions. These cuddly gifts from God always put us in a good mood and just being around them always alleviates whatever tensions we have from the day. They do so much for us without them even knowing and we repay that gesture back by caring for them and keeping them as healthy and happy as can be. Although they are always energetic and all over the place, they are all also very sweet and affectionate, and it's that tenderness and bond that makes having pets such a joy. They are there for us as much as we are there for them, after all, we are a family. Take a peek at our four crazy cats and let us show you how we love our animals.
We have our morning coffees with them
These guys are the sweetest during mornings.
We let them hang out anywhere around the house
We encourage them to exercise
Especially this fat kitty
We take selfies with them
T-bear is the vainest of them all
We let them use some electronic gadgets
Meex is more of a social media girl and T-bear is a gamer.
Meex checking her likes on Instagram and T-bear playing with the Family Computer (box) - his favorite games are Circus Charlie, TwinBee, Bomber Man, Mappy and Contra.
We try to give them good and quality organic food
Most commercial pet food is packed with sugar and it's very unhealthy for pets and makes them hungry all the time. Cats are natural carnivores, The food we get them is packed with the essential nutrients and protein they need without the carbs and they don't get hungry all the time.
We let them enjoy the outdoors all the time
So they can run around for exercise and get their needed Vitamin D.
We bathe them
We avoid putting chemicals on them so we use apple cider vinegar and water in a spray bottle. We spray them and let it sit for a couple of minutes before rinsing it. Apple Cider is an ideal organic remedy for getting rid of fleas.
We "animal" watch with them
We enjoy seeing their animal instincts ignite when they see birds, lizards and insects.
We have Matchy- Matchy outfits
Wearing all black is always a good idea.
We plant wheatgrass for them
They like to munch on wheatgrass, it gives them a lot of natural nutrients and fiber that aids in their digestion. Plus, it helps them throw up their hairballs.
We clean their ears
It makes them happy not having itchy ears (but Shalom seems to not be enjoying the process. I know you'll thank me later Shallybean!)
We allow them to distract us and de-stress us when we have some projects.
This guy likes to interrupt me whenever I'm doing art stuff.
We give them time to snooze
a 3-hour snooze that is! Right T-bear?
We give them Virgin Coconut Oil
There are so much benefits that cats and dogs can get from VCO such as improved coat, better digestion, and infection prevention. After giving them VCO, they can't stop running and playing with each other. It gives them more good fats and energy to burn.
We give them all the unconditional love they need
Rubs, snuggles and lots of love are given to these felines all of the time even if sometimes they're not in the mood.
