T.C. (a/k/a Top Cat)

I thought I would share with our readers a brief story about our week cat-sitting a dear little old guy named T.C.   Loved and nurtured by our son Jake for many years, he is now a remarkable 21 year old orange and white tabby, with white paws and an unforgettably handsome face.

At first, when Jake asked us to cat-sit T.C., I was a bit hesitant.  After all, this senior kitty was used to his own comfortable home, and his daily routines.  We also have two other cats, one senior, who has been ill off and on and is generally not receptive to other cats.  Nevertheless, T.C. made his way into our home, and into our hearts.

We first kept T.C. in my husband’s office where we provided all of the creature comforts he needed, all except one – the freedom to roam and explore our home!    He soon found a way to escape and within a few minutes, T.C. had explored all    nooks and crannies, from the basement to the top floor.   All hopes of confining T.C. to one room were dashed.  His tenaciousness had won us over!

By the end of T.C.’s “Excellent Adventure” at our home, he had taste tested some new flavors of canned food, discovered he loved catnip and enjoyed his daily exercise, swatting at the Da Bird toy.  He also discovered my husband’s comfortable lap, while sitting at the computer.    I couldn’t resist taking several photos of T.C.    I thought I’d share with you my favorite.

T.C. may have left on that cold, wintry day to return to his rightful home, but he has forever warmed our hearts and our souls.   May God bless and keep you, T.C.  We think of you often.

New Stainless Steel Drinking Fountain For Multiple Cats Now Available

We’re excited to be able to announce one of the best quality cat products on the market today, a cat fountain designed to allow multiple cats to drink fresh, aerated streams of water, without having to wait their turn.

The reason the Drinkwell 360 Stainless Steel Pet Fountain has really caught our attention is twofold:  it accommodates multiple cats, and its stainless steel design prevents “cat acne”.   What is “cat acne”?   

When cats’ chins and surrounding area come in contact with unclean, plastic food and water bowls, the bacteria that can work its way into scratches and nicks in the bowl can infect the cat.  Veterinarians and other feline experts recommend using ceramic, glass or metal bowls, and daily washing of those, in order to prevent this common condition.

You can find the Drinkwell 360 Stainless Steel Pet Fountain at www.mythreecats.com.  As a loyal blog reader, we want to reward you and offer you a 25% discount off the $99.95 retail price of this fountain for a very limited time only, while supplies last.   You must type in the promo code 360 in the promo code box at checkout and then click “update” in order to get the discount.
