My original blog was Cat Chat With Caren and Cody was created in loving memory of my beloved "Bobo" who allowed me to share his life for 18 wonderful years. He was the epitome of a true "soul kitty!" My beloved Cody was the primary blogger there until he passed tragically and suddenly on June 30, 2020. There will never be a time that I blog that I won't be thinking of Cody.

After falling victim to company downsizing in 2007, my "re-invention process" began and the original blog was created.. 

I Lived in Cleveland, Ohio for 35 years, where I worked in advertising at The Plain Dealer, (Ohio's largest newspaper) for 21 and a half years. Moved to Michigan in 2001.

With the untimely passing of Cody, and the passing of our beloved Dakota on July 9th, 2020, and the arrival of two new fur babies, (Roary and Levi), I found it necessary to change the name of the blog to Cat and DOG Chat With Caren. As it was with the original Cat Chat With Caren and Cody it is stillmy goal that Cat and DOG Chat With Caren  be a warm, fun (as well as funny!), cozy, inviting place for cat and dog lovers from all over the world where they can  relax, share, laugh, love and learn. Hoping you enjoy your visit!
