Cat Body Language

Have you ever wondered what your cat is thinking or what certain things they do really mean?  When I got my first cat almost 20 years ago I used to wonder that all the time.  Then over time I learned that cats are very expressive and do communicate a lot with their human friends and each other.  The more time spent together bonding contributes to being able to read their body language and thus communicate.

How To Change Cat Food

Cats are interesting pets that are very much creatures of habit.  They tend to be set in their ways and do not like change.  They like routines and continuity in their lives.  This is why it is very important to exercise care when changing their food.  There are a variety of reasons why a cat’s food would need to be changed such as a health issue when a vet adds special food for a health […]

I got Axl when he was a kitten and Slash when he was a year old, and when we had […]

Getting My First Tattoo

I’ll never forget the day I decided to get my first tattoo. I’d always been excited to have one, as I view them as wearable art on your body and a form of individual expression. I was so excited and knew exactly what I wanted in terms of the design and colors. I knew I wanted to go bold and have a large, bright-colored tattoo on my upper right arm. Then of course reality set […]
