Disclosure I received products in exchange for this post.
I have 4 wonderful cats, each with a different personality and different ways of doing things. I have two grey tiger cats; Panini and Angel and two black cats; Baby and Blaze. My cats are like my little furry babies, they deserve so much love and care and treats! And they return all the favors. Sometimes when I come home my cat Baby greets me by meowing over and over and sticks her tale up and rubs against me. The others don’t greet me when I come home, but if i haven’t seen them around the house in awhile they pass by me and give me a quick ‘meow’ as if they’re saying ‘hey’.
Angel is one of our outside cats, he always stays around the house and chills in the yard sunbathing, and I sometimes catch his neighbor cat friends hanging around in our drive way or on our porch. He’s out and about outside so when we finally see him again after a day or two he loves some physical affection, butt scratches, behind the ears and under the chin.
Panini is very shy, and also would not let me get a photo of her today for this post. However there’s certain people like me in the family that she is super comfortable with, like me and my daughter. She loves to play and she loves butt scratches, she isn’t very verbal unless it’s a special night and we give them some wet cat food.
BlazE is a very affectionate cat, he’s always rubbing his body against my legs, and sometimes when I’m on the computer working he’ll put his paws on my thigh and he’ll claw at my arm to get my attention, or he’ll rub his wet nose on my arm. He loves cuddling and being pet, he’s just an all around sweet cat.
Did you know that September is Happy Healthy Cat Month? Along with all the love and treats they get the rest of the months, this month they can get some extra love. Recently, the cat lovers atMeow Mix ran the Purrfect Together Survey, which asked cat parents around the country about their special bond with their four-legged friends. Here are some of the meow-nificent results:
83% of cats take naps with their humans
This is surprising—and not because 83% of people love napping with kitty. The bigger question is: Who are the 17% of deprived humans who don’t get to experience the joy of napping with their cats?
Blaz being the furry cuddly bug, I know when I lay down for a nap he’ll push the bedroom door open and meow letting me know he’s here. Baby will nap in my daughter’s room and she’ll lay on the pillow above her head. Panini likes to nap under the covers curled up.
80% of cat parents believe they can interpret their kitty’s meows
While humans and cats may purr in different languages, that doesn’t stop most cat mommies and daddies from understanding what their kitty wants—whether it be some treats, cat nip, or just a snuggle partner.
For how talkative my cat Baby is I think over the years we’ve developed an understanding between meows and eye contact.
72% of cat parents love to surprise their kitties with treats
Speaking of treats, nothing makes a cat happier than some spontaneous, unexpected goodies from the person who cares for them the most.
I enjoy it so much when I surprise my cats with tasty treats or new toys. I haven’t gotten my cats treats in a while then I surprise when yummy soft treats or wet cat food, they all circle around me meowing. They are good kitties and deserve some good treats.
55% of cats love chicken-flavored nibbles

My cats mean a lot to me, I have had them for years and I have a special bond with each of them. Some people choose cats over dogs because they feel cats aren’t as happy or excited like dogs are, and I just tell them it’s the way they are raised. All my cats are happy and excited, of course they don’t wag their tail and pounce on me like my dogs do, but they greet me and show me love in their own way and I love it.
Wishing a fantastic Happy Healthy Cat Month to you and your feline friend!
