Hello Spring! Hello Flowers! Hello…?

Photo by Ilana Gustafson

Cynthia (blissfully):  Our friend and fellow cat lover, Ilana, took this photo and I can’t stop looking at it – it’s so pretty. Don’t you just love springtime, Marcy? I always feel so optimistic and happy in spring.

Cynthia turns around to find Marcy sitting in a dense cloud of her own fur.

Marcy:  I mostly feel oppressed by hairballs in spring.

Cynthia screams and rushes off to find Marcy’s hair brush. 

*Don’t forget to brush your kitties more often in the springtime. Technically, indoor cats shed lightly all year long, but I’ve noticed that mine really do shed more in the spring. They’re weird like that. Brushing them every few days cuts waaaaaay down on the hairballs (and the amount of times I have to vacuum and dust!).

    Wow…I can't believe she took that picture! It's beautiful! Is she a professional photographer?

      No – but she's an artist and nature lover!

    Wish that was my backyard!
    Is it ok to plug products? The FURminator (recommended by Cynthia) has completely eliminated Margaret's year-round furball problem. I brush her two or three times a week and it pulls out the strays that a regular brush can't touch. Expensive but worth it.

      Oh yes! The Furminator is so fantastic. Incredible really!

    Nice PSA! Hey, have you ever stepped out of bed in the dark, and landed on a freshly-minted hairball? GACK!

      Unfortunately, yes. Unfortunately, many times.
      Good thing those cats are cute! Good for them, I mean!

    I think Kyle is getting annoyed with me being so chipper and constantly gushing about how beautiful it is outside. The trees in our apartment complex are blooming with pink and white flowers. The park grass is smattered with yellow and purple blooms. And everywhere – EVERYWHERE – the daffodils and tulips and beginning to bloom. Oh, how I love spring!
