MOQI - The British Shorthair Kitten

Jeanette Kakareka

I recently got a little kitten with my boyfriend. We named him Moqi 墨奇, meaning "curious" in Chinese. He is a blue British shorthair and he is just the sweetest.

He is used to being handled so he has been friendly since day one and is settling in nicely.

For fun he likes to wedge himself into small places.

And jump up into the little window above his bed.

He is still on the hunt for the elusive red dot. He will try again tomorrow.

We recently set him up an Instagram @moqi0518

Cat Heaven

Recently we have been working on making our patio nice.  We added a table and chairs, a bench, a barbecue, and lots of plants.  Being the crazy cat people that we are we decided we wanted to do something nice for Xyla and Sochi.  We found this beautiful great big blue pot and filled it with soil and cat grass seeds.  We luckily got a great big rain the next day and within a few days we had a full pot of grass.  We planted it lower in the pot so the cats could be in the pot while they enjoyed the grass.

When the grass was long enough we introduced the cats to it.  We got their harnesses and leashes on and ventured outside.  Xyla was not feeling it.  She would much rather walk up and down the sidewalk exploring the neighborhood.  Sochi though,  Sochi loved it!

We went to town munching on it and loved having the scent on him.  Sochi loves plants and we are constantly trying to keep him from eating plants that aren't good for him.  I think he was really excited to finally be allowed to eat his favorite snack.  I'm proud of our crazy cat people project. 

*Update - We went for another cat walk a few days after I wrote this.  Xyla decided she did in fact enjoy lounging in the grass.

Why we all need a furry friend

Morgan Quinn



So people can be great, but pets are BETTER. I cannot truly say I’m a cat or dog person specifically, but I do know life is better with a creature to come home to. No I’m not talking about your uncle Larry who lives in your basement type of creature. I’m talking three pound, white, furry kitten with the perfect amount of lazy eye.

I recently moved into my first apartment this past year and it has never really felt complete. That is until about one month ago when I grasped in my hands the new love of my life. Her name is Penelope (Penny if you prefer) and she is the creature I was referring to. My life has changed immensely for the better, and here is why.

-  I’m home a lot more. Who knew being a homebody could be so much fun! Kittens and Netflix are all you need.

-  Turns out all your friends visit more.. for your kitten of course.. not you..

-  Mornings are brighter! Who doesn’t love waking up to an animal perched on your skull at 6am!

-  Need to turn the page to your book? Don’t worry your kitten will do it with their head. They will expect a good scratch in return.

-  Your Instagram posts start to get really adorable. Sometimes too adorable.
