"I don't get ENOUGH Respect!" #NationalRespectYourCatDay

 Hi my furiends! It's Roary and talk about NO RESPECT!! It's almost the END of National Respect Your Cat Day      and Mom is FINALLY allowing me to have a say on the blog! If you ask me, this should have been done waaay before the last minute!

I pretty much feel I do NOT get the respect that I deserve!

I was here first but everything in our house revolves around the attention-hog Giant Sheltie who resides here as well.

Everything is "Levi this and Levi that!"

Mom wonders why I don't sit on her lap? Well, she chooses to watch TV on the couch right in front of Levi's crate! If he sees me while he is in the crate he loses his mind!

I think Mom gives waaay too much attention to Levi. Dad does too. But.....I am all about "Team Dad" and frankly he is the one I prefer!

You would think Mom was a DOG person the way she acts with Levi!

I guess because he seems mentally challenged, she has to tend to his needs more.

In fairness though, after a gazillion months Mom FINALLY cleaned and re-charged my fountain. 

(But I still prefer drinking out of the bathtub). 

She also bought me delicious broth made just for cats and dogs to encourage me to drink more fluids!

I would say that's a paw in the right direction but she sure has a long way to go!

Mom says she respects me EVERY SINGLE DAY, but I beg to differ!! Hoping you kitties get way more respect than I do!

Love, Roary

Happy National Cuddly Kitten and Puppy Day 2023!!

Oh boy oh boy!!! Today is Cuddly Kitten Day AND National Puppy Day!!! In honor of this day I am sharing photos of the boys when they were younger.

Roary was about 12 or so weeks old when he came to live with us (maybe a tad older)Roary was the CRAZIEST kitty!!!! He was into ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING and was a perpetual ball of motion! Definitely the most mischievous kitten I had ever known!

Levi was only 9 weeks old when he came to live with us and what a learning experience it has been!! When Dakota joined our family he was 8 months old, there is a  HUGE difference between a 9 week old puppy joining a family and an 8 month old puppy joining a family!!

While Levi can't resist trying to eat "Marshmallow Boy" (I think Roary looks like a toasted marshmallow), I am grateful that they are basically good friends, albeit wild ones!!

Roary was the CUTEST kitten!
Apparently he thought so too!

Levi was only 9 weeks old in this photo

There were times that I literally broke down crying from thinking that Levi would never be housetrained, and was frustrated about the number of "barricades" I had to construct to keep Roary out of mischief. 

Everyone told me to enjoy these days because they go by so fast and they are right. Time IS flying!! While there were many exhausting and trying days, they are less frequent. I wouldn't change anything about these two silly and wild boys.

This was from 2021 I believe


They have added life, energy, fun, craziness, love and joy to our lives that we are forever thankful for!!!

Happy Cuddly Kitten and National Puppy Day!!
