It's been said that people that hate cats will come back as mice in their next life.
The Peace And Nature With Linus
I started out my life with three common family members; An affectionate mother, a diligent father, and a sympathetic brother. As I grew up, those were the only people I could genetically relate to and even though I grew up with an orange cat named Rick...he was still just a cat. I don’t have many memories of Rick, but I remember he died from a terrible leg infection when I was at a young age. I didn’t think much of the relativity my parents had with Rick but that was just because I didn't really have much of a relationship with him. So I moved on with my life but the once praised creature popped up in my brain once I saw this kitten wandering the hallways of my elementary school. His name was Joey and every time you held him the girls would come swarming towards you. To think of that little fella meant I would be expecting a thought of curiosity and wonder, “What does having a cat feel like?”. While letting that thought lay in the back of my head, I came across an older but still immature cat walking around the same school. He was completely ignored and ominous that no one knew his name. It turns out the cat was an orphan ready to be adopted. I came up to my parents after school and demanded that we buy him, I want to truly have a cat. Next thing I know, a month later, he is sleeping on my leg in my bed. His name was Linus, and I reminisce about the peace of this curious creature as he was more than just a true inspiration.
Oliver: Coordinating since 2013
This whole pandemical situation has brought the whole world to a halt, causing many of us to be working from home or to have lost our jobs completely. For those of us who have had the privilege of keeping our jobs, many employers were mandated to send their employees to work from home with their laptops. During this time, many of us got the opportunity to do our jobs at home along side our beloved pets. In my case, my now eight-year-old cat Oliver became my new colleague. Since March of 2020, my fur baby has managed to adapt to a new routine quite quickly. While picking up some new habits of his own, as our time together became more prominent.
My pet Kai
I saw Kai at night on a tree screaming and singing in fear. I actually first heard her from my room and run downstairs to our garden. There she was hugging the tree in a funny way. I didnt know how to help her so I just said you can do it dont be afraid, and after some time she finally went down. Since that moment She wanted to hug and cuddle looking for a shelter.
The Transition of Spike
This is the story about the time my cat, Spike, came to college with me. Spike is an eight-year-old ragamuffin who is one of the most laid-back cats you will ever meet, but with the fact that he had never been anywhere other than my house ever since I had adopted him, the adjustment was a little rough. He is also a registered Emotional Support Animal, which is why I was able to bring him with me in the first place.
Jupiter and Bastet
I have this theory that my pets will become famous before I do. The two little Golden Nuggets steal the show every time they appear in a YouTube video or an Instagram post. In fact, they even have their own Instagram. And although it is my dream to become a famous YouTuber, they are attached at my hip. Wherever I go, they go. Therefore, if I become famous, they become famous too.
Maximus: Peak Feline Energy
Today I want to write about an animal who was very dear to my heart, a lovely feline by the name of Maximus. I found him, you see, abandoned in a cardboard box on the side of the road one night when I was walking home from a friend’s house. My mum, of course, would never have let me adopt a pet randomly, but when I told her that I’d found him all alone in a box, left to die potentially, her heart melted and from then on he had a place in our home. I loved him, and he loved me, but I never could compete for his affections with my sister Jessika.

Avoid These 3 Major Mistakes that Harm Your Cat
Who doesn't love cuddling up on the couch with their favorite fluffy friend and enjoying the comfort that comes from petting their soft fur and listening to their gentle purr? It's no secret that we can find satisfaction from the company of our pets. In fact, it's proven that as we pet our four-legged friends, we experience a release of the neurochemical called Oxytocin, also known as the "love chemical."
It Was He Who Rescued Me
Most people are honest when they rescue a stray. But...not many say that their stray actually rescued them. That was exactly the case with Billy. But...I feel like I am getting ahead of myself. Let me take you back to when this sad...yet comforting story began.
Leading from the Brink
On an early November evening, the weather had begun its shift to the wrong side of the thermometer. Our prior attempts to hire for this position had come up short. We had been through dozens of applications, toured multiple facilities and been outbid by a couple of other employers where we felt we had found our dream candidate. Our search committee had grown weary, like we had been looking at the same type of candidates, with the same type of experience, and the same background. We were about to put our search on hold when our HR Manager stumbled upon a pair of dark horse candidates.
An Open Letter to My Beloved Maggen......
My Beloved Maggen It was a wintery night when I first saw you somewhere near my apartment. I thought you were alone and needed someone. So, I went ahead and took you to my flat.
The Magnificence of the Evil Duchess
I don't know how the rest of you get your pets, but they have always just sort of 'happened' for me. A cat will wander into my house and suddenly I have a cat named Koby. I see a dog hurt on the side of the road and next thing I know Indiana Jane (who turned out to be a wolf) is following me around the house. I hear a cat screaming while being thrown around by some kids and before I know it I have a screaming cat in my car. I see Guinea Pigs being abused in a classroom and I am suddenly the proud owner of Brave Sir Robin and Pfeffernusse.
