Happy Groundhog Day! It’s Merlin here for another Monday’s With Merlin which I hope doesn’t feel like the film Groundhog Day. Sometimes it feels like we’re repeating things but maybe not. That’s what happens you’re about 100-years-old like me. A few years ago we used to blog about Cat Appreciation Month in February and then we stopped. There are so many pet holidays every month it’s hard to keep track BUT Valentine’s Day is coming and I thought why not celebrate the love of cats all month? So we are. Every post this month will be focused on CAT LOVE. We have some lovely topics and surprises including a fabulous giveaway tomorrow you’re going to love.
Your homework this month is to discover new ways you can show love to your cats or other cats in need. How are you feeling cat love today?
Odin, Domino and Nou Nou are becoming friends. Princess N is besotted with the boys especially Odin and trails him like a lovesick puppy. He’s acting like the older brother with the pesky little sister. He’s still a mama’s boy needing extra love to keep jealousy at bay. As always love and patience wins this game. Interactive play helps cats bond. The battery-operated mouse toy Frolicat Pounce was a great icebreaker.
There are a few other pet holidays in February worth considering.
