That seems like ages ago. Ever since Juniper got under my skin and into my heart, I’m the first one racing through the door to see her whenever we get home from being out or away. When I wake up, I look for her, but I never have to look far. Just today when I woke up I heard a little “meow” and then I looked down from the bed and she was looking back up at me upside down – from lying on her back. Best wakeup ever. When I go to sleep, she’s often the last family member I see.
The thing is, the love I have for Juniper isn’t complicated. It’s simple. It’s as simple as wanting to make her as happy as she makes me. When we had Scarlet’s birthday party last month, Juniper was watching us from the basement window. I let some close friends in to see her, and she was warm and receptive to these strangers walking into her home! It made me feel proud. I felt proud to have a loving and calm cat – who greets strangers like they’re friends. She’s also SUPER cute.
I also love that she’s great with my kids – loving on them and snuggling them and even letting them carry her around like she’s a doll! No doubt, we’re all smitten. Even Cassidy has nothing but good things to say about her and he was perhaps the last family member to sign off on her when I was calling him from the animal shelter. I vowed then, to him, and later, to her, that I would do whatever was in my power to show her a loving and supportive home. I think it’s been wonderful.
1 – It’s in the way that you feed them. That’s right. At our house, Juniper LOVES the new Meow Mix Simple Servings with Real Tuna & Salmon in Sauce and Simple Servings with Real Tuna, Shrimp & Whitefish in Sauce. Also, when you’re on-the-go, it’s an easy way to feed your cat quality food. We get ours at Walmart! I love them because SHE simply loves them and they’re simple to clean up! There’s a convenient single serving in every cup of premium wet food!
2 – It’s in the way that you play with them. True story. I once received a handout from my vet about how to lessen stress in your cat’s life, ESPECIALLY during times of change. Well, life is change. Play with your cat often. It shows love!
3 – It’s in the way that you keep them clean. Not only do we keep Juniper’s litter box clean, but we keep her food and water area neat and refreshed. That’s another reason to love Meow Mix Simple Serving products. They leave no leftovers/mess!
4 – It’s in the way that you pet them. Cats, unlike dogs (or at least our dog), are more particular about how they’re pet or scratched. Follow their lead and learn their body language signals for when they want you to stop or change the affection.
5 – It’s in the way that you groom them. Junie loves to be brushed and massaged, and it’s good for her.
