So today Joplin turned 5! Such a big girl, and yet still a baby. I remember when we first got her she was really tiny and underfed, her coat was rough and dull, and she wasn't very social. Now just two years later on her birthday she's a nice weight with a beautiful coat and best of all shes snugly, social and loving. I can't imagine life without her. Here's some before and after of Joppy:
She was not impressed that I slept in a bit delaying breakfast but I think I made it up to her with her prezzies. They are both fun and practical!
We started with a special dinner which was extra stinky. Hendrix loved hid kitten dinner but Joplin barely touched hers, it was too much like the food I tried to get her to eat when she was sick.
So back to her regular Friskies (the only wet food she'll touch). Now she's happy!
First up is a brand new cat nip toy which is always a hit. We called him Mr. Fishy.
Both of them love Mr. Fishy.
Next up, cat grass! Inspired by Chuchu's Blog I have also decided to try growing my own from seed!
A not quite as fun thing for Joplin but something I've got to learn is nail cutting. It went pretty well except it was hard to make the cats sit and stay, gotta figure that one out.
Something that I've been looking to get ever since I saw it in One's Cat Nip is the Litter Locker Plus. Apparently this is supposed to be great for apartments and condos, which is exactly my situation. I'll write more about it once I've used it for a while.
Another non-present present was the Pine Litter. I have heard sooo many great things, especially from MC about this type of litter that I'm going to give it a try and see how well it can reduce the odor.
A last little note: Hendrix is now a little mountain goat hehe
Oh and I've gone picture crazy because I got a new camera for my birthday a couple days early :D
