  • In Memory of Buckley

    Six years ago, on the Friday after Thanksgiving, Buckley passed away after a long illness. For all those years, Ive always commemorated her anniversary on the Friday after Thanksgiving, regardless of the actual date. This year, the anniversary falls on the actual date, November 28, and somehow, even though its been six years, this confluence makes this anniversary more poignant for me.

    Thanksgiving will always be associated with Buckley for me and not just because Thanksgiving Day 2008 was...

    I had been admiring Michelle Wolffs cat drawings and paintings for quite some time. Six months ago, I received a lovely email from Michelle, thanking me for including her in an article I wrote for Answers.com, titled 5 Cat Artists to Watch in 2014. Michelle offered to draw Allegra and Ruby as a thank you. Needless to say, I said yes!

    I sent Michelle a selection of photos. I love the two she chose, theyre two of my favorite photos of the girls.

    Michelles drawings are absolutely beautiful. She...

  • Reducing Stress for Cats in a Boarding Facility

    Cats have a reputation for being independent, which often leads people to believe that theyll do just fine on their own when their guardians have to go away for a few days. As long as someone comes in and leaves fresh food and water, thats all they need, right? Nothing could be further from the truth. Accidents happen. Cats could stop eating while their guardians are away, or become ill. Cats need more than just food and water to thrive they need human interaction, and a chance to play.
