Happy Thrusday everyone! Thank you to everyone who donated to J.Lo, shared her story and porayed- everything helps. We are joining pepismartdog’s Thankful Thursday blog hop: I am thankful that there is such a wonderful community of pet lovers that all help each other out. This time last year, I didn’t even know about all these pet blogs.
Today is behavior day and I thought I would continue to tell you about a typical day with 15 cats. Last week, I told you about breakfast. After breakfast, I wash our dishes and theirs ( not together). Then I do a full litter box change on some of the boxes, I do that every 3 days because we use the plain clay, not the scented or clumping. Then I get a break until noon.
When we have lunch, they do too- first, of course. They actually just get a small bit of dry food to tide them over until 7pm dinner. Lucy and Snowball get to split a small can of Sheba brand though because Lucy is elderly and Snowball doesn’t have many teeth even though she is young. If I am not home, hubby will deal with this and take Lucy to the bathroom.
They are supposed to wait until 7 pm for dinner, but at 3 pm Phoebe begs her dad for a snack.. He always gives her one and when the others hear the containers rattling, they come running. We actually eat our dinner at 6 pm and make them wait- I probably shouldn’t do that because they drive us crazy at dinner especially when chicken is involved.
Somehow they have suckered us into a 10 pm snack as well – exact same one as at noon. And Phoebe will pester me again when I go to bed at 11 or 11:30. I guess we feed them too often, but I try not to make any meal too big. Sammy is the biggest at 20 pounds, but he is a large cat ( should probably weigh 17 though). Have a nice day, I am tired just thinking about my day.
Starting Saturday, I will be posting this year’s costumes: Here are some from a couple years ago: Phoebe is Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz and Stinky was the tin man:
