Adam and I are cat people. We love our cats like they are our children. We worry about them, make sure we are feeding them the best food, and we want them to be happy. We, like other cat people, believe that our cats are special. I mean, heck, I even devote a post a week to them on my cooking blog! Our Amos and Sadie have very distinct personalities, and likes and dislikes. They are not pretentious or prissy, however, they do have some favorite things. Cue music: “Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens…” These are a few of their favorite things:
Amos and Sadie, like every other cat in the world, love to nap. They sleep for the majority of the day. Amos prefers sleeping on soft things – a folded up towel on a chair, the comforter on the bed, a blanket on the couch, and separated laundry on the floor. Sadie will sleep just about anywhere, including the floor, however, she loves to nap on the office chair. Oh, and did I mention that I’m usually sitting in the chair, too!
2) Wet Food
Sadie and Amos are not finicky cats, they like pretty much everything that you put in front of them. Both Amos and Sadie go crazy for Friskies Meaty Bits. As soon as Adam walks through the door at night, they run into the kitchen and start meowing incessantly. I hate the fact that they are addicted to this stuff because I don’t feel that it has any nutritional value. We give them high-quality, made for sensitive stomachs (Amos has tummy issues) dry cat food. However, Amos loves lapping up every drop of the gravy, his tummy tolerates it, and we like to make both of them happy.
3) Cat Dangler Toy
Speaking of happy, the next item on the list of Amos and Sadie’s favorite things is the Purrfect Feather Cat Toy™ .
This little beauty provides hours of fun. Seriously, if you have a cat, you need to get this! It comes with an insert, so once they destroy the first one, you have a back-up. They go bonkers for it, I mean “certifiably insane” for it – spinning in circles, jumping in the air, flipping, and diving!
4) Scratching Post
Another cat essential, that Amos and Sadie love, is a scratching post. They love stretching out while scratching and it steers them away from the couch. We actually have a large cat climber/scratching post in storage. This is similar to the one that we have in our sublet.
These are only a few of their favorite things…
