Pets are good for you

I love animals and like most people have pets.

A dog named Jake and a new addition to the family…a cat named Kate or Katie.  If you’ve read my blog in the past, you probably have seen photos of Jake, so I thought I’d let you meet Katie.  She’s very sweet, loves to eat and definitely has put Jake in his place.

She’s the Queen and here she is on her throne…


She has some favorite places to lay around…on a padded bar stool in the great room and on a pillow on my desk.  A friend had her for a short time…long enough to realize she wasn’t getting along with her other cat…so I agreed to take her.  I wasn’t sure how the dog and cat would get along, but after a shaky start, within the first week they now walk by each other without any clawing or hissing from Katie.  Jake is a big sweetie and would never hurt her…but I can see her point of view.  When you’re as tiny as her and there’s a big dog wanting to play, I think I’d be a bit worried too!

Jake hates to see me give her attention…Oh, why mommie, why?


You’ve probably heard about the studies that show how our blood pressure drops when we pet dogs or cats.  I actually get sleepy when I pet Katie…now Jake is another story.  He’s so playful and hyper most of the time…mine probably goes up with him!

  1. Such a pretty girl.
    Miss Kitty departed this life some 29 months ago, and I have not added another kitty to the household. Pets have been in my life for 35 years, yet now empty nesting is OK. I will wait for the magic.


  2. I had never wanted a dog but I have one through a series of strange events…and I am ever so grateful that these events happened. Because I adore him and I totally miss him when I am away. I never would have known that I could love a dog this much!


I'd love to hear what you have to say
