2017 – A New Year Of Possibility

The best thing about the dawn of a brand new year is that it fills you with a new sense of possibility, that feeling of ‘This is the going to be the best year ever’.

It’s the time of year where I usually make my daily schedule to get my fitness regime up and running and write down all the goals that I would like to achieve. It is also the time that I reflect on the year gone by and be proud of everything that I achieved. It helps that I have a digital journal because I can always go back to it if I need a reminder.

Regardless of whether I meet all these expectations that I set or if I fall short of achieving a few, the journey of planning to achieve my dreams always brings on a big smile.

2017

 

In the coming days and weeks, I will be sharing my plans for the CrazyCatLadyCorner etsy store. I have some exciting ideas and look forward to sharing them with all of you!

Kitty also has some resolutions that she would like to share with her readers so watch this space for that:)

So to kick start this amazing year, I want to say  thank you to everyone who takes time to read these posts and to everyone who has supported my business 🙂 I look forward to sharing all the amazing things that this year brings with you all!

The Best Christmas Ever!

-Written by Kitty Mojito-

This Christmas has been one of the most memorable ones ever! I, Kitty Mojito made a ton of new friends over on Instagram and we had a blast taking part in a card exchange and two secret santa gift exchanges!

FYI the card exchange was my brainchild and it grew so fast that many IG accounts from all over the world decided to take part in it…..

First, let me share with you the two secret santa gifts…

The first one was sent to me by my friends Fred and Thunder (IG:@punkrawkgyrl). There were many toys for me and also a bag of treats for Mama. So lovely!

The second secret santa gift was sent to me by my new friend Chloe (IG: chloe.and.cleo.cats) … It was a great gift pack! It had toys, treats and also a great bag for Mama that had my photo and name on it!

 

And then we come to my other gifts…! Wow! I was so blessed … there were so many things under the tree for me… I think Santy Claws thought that I was a very good girl this year….. I also got an extra special gift from my Grandmeow in Sri Lanka… She made this lovely quilt with my name on it! I love it and I sleep on it everyday!

I also got over 50 cards from all my friends all over the world!! Aren’t they just lovely?

Mama says that I am the luckiest kitty out there to be so loved…. I think I agree with her.

Speaking of Mama, she did make me wear some strange clothes for Christmas. Do you want to see what I thought of it? I was ok with the green sweater but I really didn’t like the hooded sweater…. I kept it on long enough to take this photo!

 

And here I am finally getting to open my presents on Christmas morning!!

 

Mama tells me that there are a few more gifts coming in the mail. I will share about it when it gets here.

This concludes a very Merry Kitty Mojito Christmas 2016.

I wish you and your furbabies a wonderful Christmas and a very Happy and Purrfect New Year 2017!

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas!

As much as I love this time of year, it is also one of the busiest times!

And no matter how organized I try to be, there is always that last minute rush of trying to add on to gifts etc.

This year, I made my Christmas list months ahead, allotted a budget to each person and sent out all my holiday cards in November. I purchased most of the items on the list on Black Friday and they are all wrapped and ready to go as of today!

The  only person on the list that I am still sort of working on is Kitty!

Let me backtrack a bit and tell you about how things work in our household during the Christmas season.

Our gift list is usually pretty small. It mostly includes immediate family and a few friends. So this makes things a bit easier.

As for my husband and I, we usually don’t buy each other any large gifts. We decide on a budget as to what we each will spend on the other person and do small stocking stuffers, gift cards or use that money towards a new experience. I, for one, LOVE gift cards! It is the ideal gift you can get me! I prefer to shop in my own time so this works out perfect!

So in a nutshell, thanks to my slight OCD, I am Christmas ready by the beginning on December.  And of course, Kitty loves all the lights and bling that gets put out so she spends most of her time cuddled up under her little tree! Yes, you heard me… HER tree! We gave up trying to have a full sized tree 2 years ago as it didn’t survive her pawing and climbing! So now we decorate a tiny 3 foot tree especially for her:)

 

Here is Kitty enjoying some of the snow and then followed by a snuggle session under her favourite blanket to stay warm!

 

We sent out over 60 cards this year to Kitty’s Instagram friends! We have now started to receive many cards as well! The adorable bowtie you see her wearing is from a Canadian company called Fancy Paws 🙂

The Holiday Season Is Here!

My most favourite time of the year!

There is something so magical about the Christmas season….. the lights, the decorations, the songs, the snow…….just an all round feeling of joy!

So this year, to celebrate the season as well as the opening of my Etsy shop, I added several cute pet bandannas to my repertoire. Kitty loves trying on new bandannas so I wanted to give the opportunity to other cat parents to purchase these fun items for their own kitties.

I have had great feedback about them so I hope to add more fun prints in the coming months!

What do you think? Let me know your thoughts 🙂

Prepping For Halloween

I usually don’t pay much attention to Halloween….. I think I’ve only dressed up once… ever! LOL

But this year, I thought I would spend a little extra time and put some effort into getting a costume for Kitty 🙂 She now has over 1100 friends on Instagram and I have had some inquiries as to what her costume will be!  I think all her friends would like to see her in something fun for the holiday!  I don’t want to make it too complicated so I am hoping to buy something from the store and add a home made accessory 🙂 Watch this space for photos 🙂

Here are some ideas that looked appealing 🙂

I am not sure if Kitty will be patient enough to model such cute outfits however I will try 🙂

Keeping Cats Safe In Winter

As the snow piles up and the temperature drops, health and safety risks increase for cats.

Here are five tips that will help keep all kitties safe and happy over the winter

  1. Keep cats inside

If a quick jaunt outdoors leaves you shivering and shaking, it’s too cold for your cat as well. You may think that they are accustomed to spending time outside but for their own health and safety, it’s worth keeping them indoors during the winter months.

  1. Create warm spaces indoors

Even indoors, it can get pretty chilly during the winter – make sure they have plenty of warm spaces to curl up inside the house. I have blankets and fluffy crate mats in several places around my apartment so Kitty has a warm, cuddly seat anywhere she goes.

  1. Before you start your car, bang on the hood

When the temperature drops, outdoor cats may seek shelter from the cold under the hood of your car. Give the hood a quick rap or honk your horn to scare away any hiding cats before you start your car.

  1. Be careful with chemicals

Antifreeze is highly poisonous to both cats and dogs. If you put antifreeze in your car this winter, make sure to thoroughly clean up any spills, securely replace the cap, and carefully wipe the sides of the container after use. You may also consider purchasing antifreeze made with propylene glycol rather than ethylene glycol – it’s safer (though still dangerous) if ingested.

While antifreeze may be the biggest concern because its sweetness makes it taste good to animals, make sure you also clean up any other chemical spills this winter and try to limit your use of rock salt, which can make a cat sick if she eats it.

5.     Keep your neighborhood cats safe by building an outdoor cat shelter

Stray cats in your neighborhood may struggle to keep warm and find food in the wintertime. By making and maintaining an outdoor cat shelter, you can help keep your neighborhood’s strays warm and protected from the elements.
