18 Struggles Only A Cat Owner Understands

I need to write something/blog something.  Quick, think…………  Ah here’s an article I can write on:

https://www.thedodo.com/struggles-every-cat-owner-has-1150355704.html

#1.  Yup Dac did this to me.  I actually went outside to see if she escaped, even though it was physically impossible for her to go outside.

#5.  I have just accepted the fact I had “sand” on my floors.  I really need to buy a mini or a handheld vacuum cleaner to quickly sweep up the “sand”.

17.  I have given up having plants in the house.  Plants and cats don’t mix.

18.  Yup, good thing Dac is a cutie.

{52 Snapshots of Life} Week 16: Quizzical

Quizzical is an expression.  A look of confusion and going hmmmm.  So I’m going to make my readers have very quizzical looks by doing a quiz, bwahaha.

  1. What breed is Dac?
  2. Where did I get my cats from?
  3. What does the human like doing?
  4. What is Dac’s favorite toy?
  5. How many cats do I have?

Why I write the way I write!

Have you ever looked at your blog posts and wondered what influenced your writing style?  My high school English teacher and dad would be horrified that I’m writing a blog.  I liked English, but not the grammar part.  I really couldn’t care less about verbs, nouns, semicolons, etc.  Now I love to read and read a ton.

I do notice my sentences are quite choppy and short.  I think that’s how I think.  I’m always thinking and inventing new things in my head and I sometimes can’t keep up writing what I’m thinking.  I try to make my sentences longer, but most times I’m like oh well that’s the way I write.

I have a Bachelor degree so that means 4 years of university.  I had to write a lot of papers/essays and always had to find research articles.  The motto was “for every fact you state you need 5 articles that back up your fact”.  That’s why I include a lot of links, I’m backing up my facts and I love to read.  Maybe there’s others out there who also love reading and learning new things.

Yup, that’s what influences my writing.  In short: I don’t like grammar, I love to read, and I feel the need to back up my facts.

Breaking News: VID

Huh?  What?  VID, what is that?  I’ve hear of VIP: very important people/person, but VID.  VID is very important dates.  The human has issues remember things and writing things down on a paper is easy, but the paper can get lost.  So the VID’s are going on the blog.

Anniversaries:

  • Blog started March 3 2014
  • Instagram started April 24 2014

Birthdays

  • Eddie and Java May 1 2012
  • Dac Sept. 1 2013
  • Human August 23

Adoption Dates

  • Eddie  May 22 2012
  • Java    June  11 2012
  • Dac Oct. 28 2013

Now I do have a confession to make I don’t know when my cats were born or adopted.  Told you I had a very bad memory, lol.  I do know what month and year they were born and adopted so I just picked a date that seemed rational.  Eddie I got at around 3 weeks and Java joined 3 weeks later.  Dac I got in Oct., but I can’t remember if I got her before my parent’s Agritourism business closed for the season or the weekend before.  Oh, well I have dates now and I’ll just go with that, lol.

Tweet, Follow, Like, ARGH!!!!!!!

If someone who had been in a coma in 1980  woke up today they would be thoroughly lost in our world.  People are tweeting, liking, snapping, blogging, yada yada……..  It’s so confusing and can be overwhelming.  I would recommend that a person blog (if they have one), use facebook, and instagram.  If you’re low on time I would suggest just blogging and using instagram.

Personally I’m all over the board.  I do the social media for my parents seasonal business, my hobby, and paws4moment.  That equates to:

  • 4 Facebook pages
  • 2 Tumblr pages
  • 4 blogs (2 active and 2 inactive)
  • 2 instagram accounts
  • 2 Google Plus accounts

I don’t tweet, nor will I ever tweet.  I don’t understand Twitter and  I don’t care to understand Twitter, lol.  I find Google Plus to be pointless so I have abandoned my two accounts.  I use Tumblr passively, in that my blog posts and instagram posts get automatically get posted on the site.  Other than that I don’t do anything on Tumblr.  There are a ton of social media sites out there and here is a link if your interested in seeing how many there are: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_social_networking_websites

Personally I love instagram and am always checking instagram.  I also like my blog.  I have thought of starting a facebook page for paws4moment, but that would be too much.

Whoa!!! I better lay off the catnip.
Whoa!!! People must have too much time on their hands.

My Sputtering Blog

Looking through my stats I have to admit I don’t have a very popular blog, lol.  I would like if people would look around my blog, but at the same time my blog is a diary of my cat’s lives.

My depressing stats (in a sarcastic voice):

  • I get an average of 4 likes per post.
  • I usually get 1 or 2 comments per post.
  • In Jan. I had 224 views and 118 visitors.
  • In 2014 total comments were 34 and I got 125 likes.

My cats and I are friendly people and like to interact with people.  I post every Mon, Wed, and Fri. and I try to look at other people’s blogs at this time.

When Dac is asleep, I love her.

Happy One Year Anniversary!!!!

I’ve been blogging for a year now.  While, to be totally honest, I guess its been more like six-months.  With all my laptop issues and my summers being crazy (a 4 acre garden/pumpkin patch and canning 1000 jars) posting posts has been hard.  But my new year’s resolution is to post every Mon-Wed-Fri so……………

Happy One Year Anniversary to Me!!!!!!!!!!!!

1,000,000 Pictures of my Cats.

I’m not sure how many pictures I have of my cats, but it is in the thousands, if not tens of thousands.  I usually take 10 pictures of the same pose and than never delete the bad ones.    Going through my pictures I have double the pictures of Dac, compared to Eddie and Java.  I have very few pictures of Java as she is my shy diva.

At a family gathering someone asked “So did you get some nice pictures of everyone?”.  I smiled and said “No.  I only take pictures of animals and scenary”.  The person said “Aren’t some humans animals?”.  Hmmm, got to ponder that one.

Every once in a while I go through my pictures and try to sort them.  It’s not an easy task and takes a while, but I love looking at pictures of my cats.  I hope you enjoy the pictures I post of my cats.

Simple math: an average of 10 pics a day times 365 days of the year equals 3650 times 3 (how old my kitties are) equals 10, 950 pictures.  Yeah, I’m a tad crazy, lol.

{52 Snapshots of Life} Week 8: Mirror

This week is mirror and I counted I have 3 mirrors in my place and another bizarre fact I have no pictures up of humans in my place.  I’m a nature and animal type of person.  Also I think the last time someone took a picture of me was a year or two ago.

Mirror
The closest thing to a family picture. Trying to wrangle 3 cats and a human in one picture I think is mission impossible so 2 cats and human is impressive. Also the human does not do selfies or pictures of herself :)!!

 

Note: I am looking at other people’s blogs on this blog hop.  A lot of blogs don’t have a like button so I can’t show my “like” for your post.  Also I have found that some sites I can’t comment.  I have tried and after 2 tries I gave up.  So I will be a ghost and float around and read blogs.  Sorry I can’t show my appreciation and “like” of your posts.

 

I’m back!!!!!!!!!!

Wow!!  Everything is a mess on here, lol.  Time to fix everything and start regularly blogging.  Not having a computer for 7 months, canning over 1000 jars in 3 months, tending a 1 acre market garden, and 3 acre pumpkin patch makes life a little furry.  But I’m back……
