Surviving the Election Season

I am having a love/ hate relationship with politics this year.  I am not registered with either party and have over my lifetime voted both Republican and Democrat.  I have always been sure of the issues and made an effort to understand how a candidate's view of the world affects me. I've always felt secure at the end of an election because no matter how contentious the election season, whether or not my candidate won or lost, I was secure in the smooth transition of power, until now of course.

I'm sure the cats are starting to sense my angst here lately.  They have done everything they could to keep me calm while watching debates or listening to the news.  They try to distract me when either candidate is mentioned on TV/ Radio. They force me for head rubs, butt scratching, and treats. They sit on my chest and hold my stare, lick my face and talk to me. I hope my insecurity is not making them feel neglected. It's working on me.  My cats do a great job of soothing me.  I could use several more to keep me chill every day, everywhere.

Hopefully, in 19 days this political season will be just a bad memory and not the face of things to come. It has to; I'm running out of popcorn, and I don't have room for many more cats.

Celebrating Vet Techs - Wednesday BlogPaws Bloghop

This is Lewis.  He is a Vet Tech at the Takoma Park Animal Clinic.  Though I've worked with several Vets within the clinic, Lewis has always been the primary keeper of all my kidz.  The cats like him as if he were family. He's been there for me when I adopted my cats.  He was there when I had to say good-bye to them. His presence is a comfort and reassurance that my cats will be cared for properly.  

Thanks, Lewis.

No Tuna in Altoona, but Coco was Available

The kidz and I had an excellent time at the Central Pennsylvania Pet Expo in Altoona over the weekend. We went in support of our friend Teri and of course Coco, the Couture Cat.  So many of Coco's fans came out to see the fashionable feline. Coco is so popular that people often ask the organizers if she will attend. Can you believe, people get out just to see Coco?  Wow, is she popular!

For our part, we handed out information about Breast Cancer Awareness, along with providing information about Sphynx cats (for the 1,000,000th time, they are NOT hypoallergenic)! We always have fun and clearing up misconceptions about Sphynx cats is an important part of protecting the breed from abandonment and abuse. Believe me; we don't mind the questions.

Now that we are back home, we can look forward to our local events.  We are not due to attend a public event until November 21st, 2016 (the Silver Spring Thanksgiving Day Parade). We might do a Halloween event the last weekend in October, but we have not received a booking for anything which is unusual for us. Maybe this year we will use the time to speed up long-delayed projects.
