We talked about popular cat names last week, but I don’t recall any of the above being on that list!

What’s your cat’s name, and how did you come up with it? Did it originate from a movie, like the names above? We’d love to hear the story!

What’s In a (Cat’s) Name?

How did you come up with your cat’s name? Is it a name you first heard in a movie? Or maybe a television character? Or maybe it’s simply one of the long-time tried and true pet names like Tiger or Boots?

We love this infographic because not only does it tell us the most popular male and female cat names, but it also gives us a little insight into the ways that we humans come up with these names. Take a peek, and then we’ll chat some more below.

Does Your Cat Have a “Cattitude”?

Anyone who’s ever lived with a cat knows that felines have a certain, shall we say, attitude toward the rest of the world. We’ll call it cattitude. Do you know how to read your cat’s cattitude? Take a look at the infographic below to learn more!

You can learn a lot about your cat’s mood by watching his tail and listening to his meow. Knowing how kitty is feeling and what he needs from you can be pretty simple when you know what to look for.

In what ways does your cat speak to you? Let’s chat about it in comments!

Happy Groundhog Day 2015!

February 2 is Groundhog Day!

As of the writing of this post, we’ve yet to learn what the future holds. Will Punxsutawney Phil, the world renown groundhog from Pennsylvania, emerge from hibernation and see his shadow, taking this as a sign of six more weeks of Winter and return to his burrow? Or will he give us good news, seeing no shadow and letting us know that an early Spring is on its way?

The legend of Groundhog Day is based on an old Scottish couplet: “If Candlemas Day is bright and clear, there’ll be two winters in the year.” And while we all know that whether or not Phil sees his shadow is no true indicator of what Mother Nature holds in store for us, it’s still a fun little distraction in the middle of the cold, snow, and limited sunlight of the Winter months.

I’m curious, though – what do you think of Winter? Are you counting the days until Spring, as I am, or are you just fine with the cold? Leave a comment and let’s chat!
