Ten Healthy Playtime Tips and Exercises for Your Cat in a Sedentary Environment

I’ve been working remotely from home on and off since March of 2020 when the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a pandemic and President Donald J. Trump declared a nationwide emergency. I actually prefer it – I’m highly efficient in a home environment, I don’t need supervision, I don’t have to worry about health issues associated with my eyesight and commuting, and I’m grateful for any extra time I’m able to spend with my cats who are also thrilled when I’m at home all day long.

At the beginning of this year, I got the news I’ll now be working permanently from home and while I’m happy for the change it doesn’t come without challenges, one of them being my physical fitness because if I don’t make a conscious effort to step away from my computer for some exercise, I could literally be sitting for hours on end without a break. Not healthy. Now, imagine your indoor cat – in a sense, they have always been working remotely, trapped in whatever four-walls environment we have created for them, and their need for exercise is equally important. As guardians to our pets, it’s up to us to provide them with the exercise and stimulation they need to keep their bodies fit and their minds sharp because the fact is, a sedentary lifestyle is unhealthy for us and it is unhealthy for a cat, too.

Hoping for a Kinder and More Responsible 2022 from Zee & Zoey’s Cat Chronicles

Those gorgeous golden eyes to ring in the Mew Year belong to our sweet rescue, Shadow.

As the New Year begins, I typically enjoy writing a reflective post, sharing my thoughts and wishes for the days ahead. I’m not one for resolutions, as I try to live each day with the best of intentions, but this year I’m just tired and I don’t have the mental wherewithal for a deep post. The nonstop daily barrage of sensationalized, often conflicting news stories, political and personal divide, and the exhaustion of the minutiae of a Covid world has caused me to withdraw a bit from blogging and social media and my creativity is on hiatus as a result.

Happy Holidays 2021 from Zee & Zoey’s Cat Chronicles

This is Zoey and the image I designed for our 2021 holiday card.

One of my greatest joys besides my cats is to share awesome pictures with great graphics of them for the holidays during the month of December on social media. Since not all of you are on social media, I thought I’d share some of my favorite images I’ve posted of them over the past several weeks on this beautiful Christmas day.

Enjoy! And from myself and my feline gang – Zee, Zoey, Mia, Peanut, Rolz, Kizmet, Jazmine, and Shadow, our sincerest wishes for a safe and joyous day. I can’t speak for my cats, but I know all I want moving forward is a time that isn’t cloaked in stress, worry, division, and fear. I miss everyone so much and wish for a day when we can all celebrate together, safely, and in mutual harmony. Read more

Plants and Cats – Keeping Them Safe for the Holidays

The best rule of thumb – decorate with faux flowers, and if you’re not sure if a plant is poisonous, look it up at www.petpoisonhelpline.com

Thanksgiving is over. December is here, and there’s a cool nip in the air which can mean only one thing – for many of us it begins the mad dash of holiday decorating, shopping, baking, and more. It can be a wonderful time of year, but it can also bring certain dangers to our feline friends, especially all those gorgeous plants associated with the holidays, such as poinsettias, mistletoe, lilies, holly, amaryllises, and paperwhites, to name a few.
