Remembering Beignet

Beignet (RIP) at 9 weeks old - August 2011

We pause today to remember our little brother, Beignet, who left this earth at 11 weeks of age due to a sarcoma. You can read his story from last year's post. Beignet was Truffle's only litter mate and he was a special little man cat.

Take Your Cat to the Vet Day

August 22nd is National Take Your Cat to the Vet Day. We want to help keep your cat healthy by encouraging you to get routine check-ups for your cat(s). Did you know that 83% of cats visit the veterinarian before their 1st birthday, but over 50% don’t return until they become sick or are in pain? With regular healthcare, your veterinarian can often detect conditions that may affect your cat’s long-term health.

Up until this year, we visited our vet on an annual basis for our checkups...

Total Eclipse in SC

Unless you've been hiding under a rock the last few weeks, you know about the total solar eclipse that will be traveling across the United States today.  We're in the path in South Carolina to experience the total eclipse. A total solar eclipse occurs when the sun, moon, and earth line up so perfectly that the moon blocks the sun, creating rare and spectacular effects across the sky and throughout the natural environment, including darkness in the middle of the day.

Truffle is claiming her eclipse glasses for the Total Eclipse in SC today

Caturday Art

We're featuring Truffle today for our Caturday Art Creation since her beautiful eye is back to normal. We went back to LunaPic, but tried a new effect for today's artwork - landscape.  We love the results and think it looks like an oil painting on canvas.
