Nana

The late night movies with chips, the laughs, going for car rides in your old truck to watch the deer as they frolicked through the meadows, and helping you at the corner store where you worked; these were just a few of the very fond memories my mum has shared with us about her Nana. We too, Bently and I, have our own very fond memories of our great Nana.

Our mum and our family lost her, Nana, a couple of Christmas ago, it’s been a tough one, for all of us really. She was such a strong, brave, and loving person; believe it or not she even was terrified of cats at one point!

I helped her through it, she told me she was once attacked by a cat when she was very little and she had been so scared of us ever since.

The more and more she visited the more my mum and I helped her adjust to me; we showed her how loving and calm I was.

Wouldn’t you know it after only a couple visits she was so comfortable with me she would pet me, and I would come and sit behind her- it was my favourite spot you know. I learned though, to make slower movements when I was heading towards Nana, as to not startle her. We really became good pals, I miss her very much.

This Ones For You Nana

Regardless of person or species, when we loose someone so dear, it can be a very over whelming and sad situation for all involved. No matter how big or how small the ones we love leave a mark with us forever, and they are never truly gone.

We miss you so very much Nana, but know your in a better place now. I will see you one day when I too cross that rainbow bridge. Until we meet again, we love you SO much!

A Cat’s Experiment

Good morning fellow fur fam, Luka here.

So I have continued my experiments over the last few weeks and I would like to share my findings with you. This all began a few weeks ago when it was brought to my attention that by calling my humans mum and dad and putting in some hard snuggle time that I, in return, would be awarded more food, treats, and affections.

After careful experiments I have found that, the nicer I am to the humans the better the the chances of me getting snacks. That’s right, can you believe it? I was able to carefully compare the days that I was friendlier to my humans, versus the days I was not; I was awarded with many treats on the days I was friendlier than on the days I was not- which for me, is a huge success. The humans would pet me as they walked by, stopping in the kitchen to give me a quick treat- sometimes mum would give me a treat without knowing human dad just gave me one, but shhh don’t tell them.

I think I like my new ways, I enjoyed having slaves before but now things are different, but different for the better I believe. It’s more of a partnership , where I give the snuggles and in return receive snuggles, and of course snacks- we must not forget about the snacks! Perhaps I have grown with this new found knowledge; my humans seem very pleased with this outcome, though they do not know of the experiments that were taking place. I think we all have grown a little from the experience, as that was the primary goal; and of course the snacks are an added bonus.

But I will keep putting in the effort, because well snacks; and of course I love my humans- but don’t ever tell them, I like them to be on their toes.

Until next time fur-fam

Sincerely,

The Luka-stan
