Snuggle’s Snippets 

                      A Column For and About Cats

Hi! My name is Snuggles! I was a Maine Coon Shelter Cat, but I got adopted. Yea! No shelter life for me! I strutted my stuff and put my tail in the air as high as I could from my cage, until I caught the attention of a college coed. She just couldn’t resist my beautiful fur and green eyes. I was also very handsome and fluffy. Out of the cage I went! I was so happy to find a home and just couldn’t wait to start my party life in a college apartment! Then, one day I went for a ride in the car and she gifted me to her mom! Yea, her mom! This mom kissed me all the time…even on the lips! She gave me this sissy name! Oh well, I actually really like her, now. What can I say? I get tuna snacks and treats, groomed  and cut  (something to do with digesting fur balls) AND…I get blueberry facials! I guess I can live with it.

Speaking of living with… I also live with 5 other fur buddies. Two are dogs; YES, I said, DOGS!! Awe, it’s OK because they are two toy French poodles.   They don’t chase me because I am bigger than they are and their wagging tails make perfect “swat targets”! It keeps me mildly amused…

The rest of the crew are cats…Sassy, Munchie and Peaches. They all came from a shelter, too! I can tell you one thing; I am definitely the feline intellect around here. These three could care less about doing anything constructive! All they want is to be petted all day by mom and suck on blankets. JEESH!! 

OK, enough about them, back to ME!:)

Well, because I didn’t pee on the bed this time when my mom’s cousin came for a visit, I decided to ask for something really big for my birthday. I asked for a Kuranda bed and a computer. After I played around with it for awhile and got bored with all the mouse and string games on YouTube, I learned to type and got this idea to write an information column for cats.

You want information? I got it! I am excited to share with you the great things about cats and ideas that might help you if you are on a cat’s staff.  It makes me feel like I am back in college and it keeps me out of the sink…well, most of the time!

Watch for my monthly Snippets! Some day, you will be a smart cat, just like me!

JULY’S SNIPPET: It’s time to PARTY!!

I hope you all had a great 4th of July!  Lots of fireworks and PARTIES!!!  For those of us cats, that like to table surf and snoop around the party goodies when mom is not looking, we might need a reminder that it is not a good idea to sneak a taste of everything!  Some of those darn delicious snacks and foods can cause diarrhea, vomiting, affect major organs and even cause death.  So…if you want to hang on to all of those 9 lives you’ve got…don’t go tasting these foods:

Avocado, Chives, Onions, Garlic, Chocolate, Grapes, Raisins, Coffee, Caffeine, Nuts, Salt, Alcohol, Milk Products and Citrus 

Next time there is a party, ask mom to open up a can of tuna or just keep me separated from all the goodies!

 Better to be safe than sorry!
