For the Love of Cat Hair

Hello beautiful wonderful people!

Today’s post is a little bit off the cuff and out of the ordinary for me. I’ve talked about the fact that I have my horse hobby, but I realized that since I started this blog specifically, I’ve never really talked about the furbabies I have at home.


My big orange fur ball is Mr. Giovanni and I’ve been his person for about three and a half years now. He’s a little bit older, probably closer to 10 years old, but we really have no idea since he was a stray that showed up at a friend’s house.

Gio tends to spend most of his time napping and is not very social or cuddly. It’s kind of like a treat when he decides he wants to snuggle, and if there’s company in the house he’s usually hiding out in the bedroom away from people.

I am definitely his person, he gets very upset when I pack for a trip or don’t spend much time at home for a few days, and he loves to have his nose petted. He’s just a sweetheart all around.

My spazzy black witch cat is Moriarty and he’s been my child/cat/dog/dragon monster since July of 2016, so he’s right about 3 years old at this point. He was a teeny tiny fuzzball when I picked him out, and he is incredibly attached to me.

He never really gets called by his full name, everyone just calls him M. Or Monster. Or Demon Cat. He is a very, VERY active kitty and is always getting himself into some sort of trouble.

He is more vocal than any other cat I have ever known and also more expressive and personable than even some people I know. He is convinced that I’m his mother, he gets very jealous, and he has quite an annoying tendency to bite (although rarely me, usually just other people), but he can be so sweet when he wants to be.

They are almost complete opposites and do fight more often than I would like,¬†although they can also be very sweet to each other. They’re both my babies and now that they’ve adjusted to having my husband around we’re a nice happy little family.

Of course, now we’ll see what happens when baby A arrives and we have to do all sorts of readjusting. It’ll be interesting, to say the least!

What household pets do you have and how do they fit into your family life?

Love and kindness,

Katharine Marie
