Bonding With CK and a Giveaway! #GetHealthyHappy


I am a very lucky kitteh. Yes, you read that right. I may hiss and growl when I feel one of the peeps—usually TW—doesn’t measure up to my high standards but I’m lucky. My peeps understand cats. They understand those little extras that make me a well-adjusted and happy cat. They know that I need more than food and vet visits to keep me healthy and happy. Hill’s® Science Diet® also understands.

What more could I—and you my cat furrends—need beside healthy stinky goodness? I’m glad you axed. Let me give you the 411 about how this little ghetto kitteh rolls.


Well, ♬♩I get up every morning. and I go to work at nine. And I come back home at five-thirty / get the same train every time. ♬ CUT! WRONG SONG! I am a well-respected cat though. Where was I?

Sometime between five and six a.m., I jump outta bed and head to the window for some early Bird-tv and sun puddles. TW will get up so we can walk in the kitchen together. I then get an ounce and a half of stinky goodness to tide me over until my lunch. What do I hear? Pop is getting up! I know what that means.

Almost every morning before Pop washes and shaves, he FURminates me and we bond. Bonding with Pop is my favorite time of day. I let my fur down and purr like crazy. My Pop ain’t no fool. He knows grooming is a way to show a little extra love to me. After he leaves, I lay down again to formulate the next blog post in my head. When TW finally gets up, I start dictating to her.

After a lunch of grain-free gut rot food with pumpkin soup, I’m ready to play. Some days I’ll just take off running with TW right behind me. She’ll catch up eventually but I’ll keep running. These zoomies back and forth through our tiny condo will continue for awhile until I go up to my tunnel and  TW gets tired of waiting for me to running through it. Other days I’ll just sit on my tissue paper. These days I expect TW to make up a game using the tissue paper and a peacock feather. Often she’ll get out the little DIY toy she made by tying a 39¢ hair accessory feather to an elastic string and put me through my paces jumping and stretching. Play and exercise are more little extras TW does to keep me healthy and my mind sharp.

Every night I get my treats. Unfortunately for me she counts them out to make sure I don’t get fat. Hill’s has salmon and chicken treats that feature balanced nutrition but that doesn’t stop TW from counting the ways she loves me.

After Pop goes to bed, TW and I have another play session usually involving the elusive red dot. I love these play sessions after the light goes out and the red dot runs across the floor. Occasionally, she’ll be tired and think she’s gonna turn in early but I usually have different ideas. Those nights, I’ll sing the song of my people loudly and proudly while batting my green ball with the rattle outside her bedroom.

Extra attention and special moments with my peeps bring joy to my life and to theirs. Treats, toys, playtime, exercise and grooming are all ways that reinforce the bond between me and my peeps. If you need advice about any little extra, ax your veterinarian during your pet’s annual checkup.

Grooming, toys, exercise and treats help me to stay happy and healthy.

Sometimes, Cats Herd You said...

It's a good life, isn't it, CK? It sounds like not giving you unlimited treats is one of the ways TW shows you she loves you. Humans are funny that way, aren't they?

Molly The Wally said...

It's a hard life CK, a hard life, specially when they count the treats. Have a marvellous Monday.
Best wishes Molly

Brian said...

Sounds like you get lots of quality time and playing with your people CK. I like playing with my mum and dad too, and I like it when I take them for walks in the fields. I am getting lots of extra treats too. Mum puts my antibiotics in them mornings and night times. She thinks I don't know but it means 4 treats and only 1 has a pill in. I don't think I am the silly one do you.

The Swiss Cats said...

Gee, dog or cat. I have five Treeing Walker Coonhounds and three cats (all rescues). Two of the cats just had birthdays and are taken care of. Two of the dogs have birthdays next month, so I guess I'd pick the dog package if I win.

Oh that dreaded red dot. But if it helps you exercise, that's fantastic.

Marty the Manx said...

Ohh you have a great routine CK! I have to share with everyone so there isn't as much individual play as I would like but we all love our science diet treats! Ralphie and I get to vote so we would like to be entered to win a kitty prize!

I would love to win the cat bundle. CK, this was an excellent informative post. Even the way TW and you play. Sometimes we kitties make it hard on our parents because we change our minds about what we want to play with. You gave our moms some ideas. xxoox

CK that's a pretty darn good schedule you have there at your house.....also sounds like you have your humans well trained which of course is impawtant. We entered the giveaway as I've never had Hills and it sounds like it just might be up my alley (or up my driveway?).
