At part of my Caturday series, I thought I would also include some tips on owning your own cat. Because I have almost always had some kind of cat in my life since birth and am slowly immersing myself into the cat community, hoping to eventually be welcomed as one of their own, I feel like I am a qualified resource for this topic.
This week’s tip is focused on the fact that if you wish to be a happy cat owner, you have to have zero expectations from them. Cats are extremely independent creatures and they can lick their own butts, thank you very much. You don’t have to bathe them unless your cat somehow rolls in a giant mud puddle. If your cat wants to snuggle with you, it will. If it doesn’t want to, it will not give in no matter how many times you run after it and grab it by the hind legs and hold it as tight as you can without squishing its soul. Not all cats are people cats, and not all cats hide away in the rafters of your basement and exist solely as glowing orbs in the darkness. I’ve only ever owned cool cats, but that’s because I’m cool so I cannot guarantee this for every cat owner.
What you can expect from your cat:
- Fur on everything, even if you can’t see it.
- Probably will pee somewhere besides the litter box.
- Will chase things you cannot see, convincing you that ghosts reside in your house and are actually present right now.
- Sleeps in middle of the bed and regardless of how many times you move them, they will move back.
I hope you have all enjoyed this week’s Caturday. Remember, as cat people like to say, “The time is meow.”
Hello everyone. We meet again. I decided I should probably get my bootay in gear for the new year and write a Caturday post. Most people’s resolutions don’t involved a cat-themed blog post on the last day of the week, but I guess I’m not most people.
These cats clearly had an excellent New Year’s Eve, as did I. My goal is to nap less although I doubt that will happen. Yes, I am a cat. Yes, I do always land on my feet. No, you can not snuggle with me unless I give you permission.
HELLO. Once again we have reached the most cherished day of the week. The one, the only, the Caturday.
Today’s Caturday post is not only dedicated to the cat species, but also the the capybara. I love cats, we all know that. But the capybara has a special place in my heart simply because of the smug look on its face at all times. This photo, however, is a special one because you can see its little eye bending up a little and it is feeling TRUE HAPPINESS. This is the truest love I have observed ever in my entire life that I haven’t been a part of and where my cat wasn’t the other half of the relationship. I highly suggest you google pictures of capybaras and giggle at their smugness, because there is actually no other way to describe that facial expression.
P.S. I’m working on a real post at this very moment so I’M SO SORRY IT’S BEEN SO LONG.
Here we are again. Another Saturday, another Caturday. I find this makes more sense in my life than “another day, another dollar” because I have absolutely no money, but I do have cats!!!!! My previous post was a sincere apology for missing last week’s Caturday and there was no way I was going to miss it two weeks in a row. This week’s cat is one that made me snort in the middle of my theology class, one so loud that I then had to turn it into a weird cough/laugh combo and then proceed to jump out the window because my fellow classmates were trying to shoot me with laser beam eyes.
CATS LOVE IT!!! There is nothing but pure joy on this feline’s face. I can’t imagine anything more enjoyable in it’s entire life, even when measured in cat years. True, there is no rainbow. The real question is if the cat is supposed to only wear it when there is a rainbow outside, or if the rainbow is created through the wearing of the unic(horn). The mystery may never be solved. Also, this is a great option for a birthday present for Frances on the next 14th of May. Keep it in mind.
I’ve been brainstorming ideas for posts I could have as a weekly installment, and what could possibly be better than CATURDAY??? If you know me, you know I love cats! I even own my own cat! His name is Frances and he lives with my parents right now because my roommates have severe allergies and cats aren’t allowed in college dorms. Not that I didn’t consider hiding him. Here’s a picture!
Don’t tell him I put that up, it’s not the most flattering of pictures and he might get mad and piss on my bed. Now to continue about other cats! So, the basis of Caturday is that I would post a good cat picture every Saturday (get it? Caturday? lol) that is a top notch cat photo and not some run of the mill cat photo. For the first week, I have chosen one of my favorites.
Many a cat owner has said that their cat acts like they rule the world. This is because they truly believe that they do rule the world. And one day they might, which will be a day filled with cat nip craziness followed by naps. The look of pure shock on this cat’s face is similar to mine when I went to Panera Bread the other week and they were out of broccoli cheddar soup. WHAT DO YOU MEAN????
I hope you have enjoyed the first Caturday post and you can expect another one next Saturday!
