Getting Cozy for National Cat Day #PersonalCreations


Tomorrow is National Cat Day, a day first celebrated in 2005 "to help galvanize the public to recognize the number of cats that need to be rescued each year and also to encourage cat lovers to celebrate the cat(s) in their life for the unconditional love and companionship they bestow upon us." It's a time to spoil your fur baby a little more, maybe even adopt a new little friend for them!

When I adopted Mudpie last summer I was told she was a lap cat who loved to be cuddled. After bringing her home I didn't find that to be the case. Sure, she enjoyed it when I'd pick her up in my arms but when she wanted down she meant it! And keeping her still long enough to settle down in my lap was a Herculean task!

My little girl has grown up into a lovely young ladycat and she's becoming more and more content to enjoy quiet moments with her Mommy. This fall especially she's coming to my lap more and more, and there's just nothing better than taking a nap, reading a book or watching TV with her warm little body snuggled up to me.


This winter we'll be cozier than ever thanks to our new customized throw blanket from Personal Creations. By simply uploading a favorite photo to their website Personal Creations is able to reproduce your image onto a high quality throw (or ornament, mug, cosmetic bag, treat jar, pillow, doormat, baking pan, keepsake box...the possibilities are endless!) I'm not sure yet if this blanket will stay on the couch for evening cuddling, or on the bed for nighttime cuddling, but I know for sure that it's an item I will cherish forever.

Christmas is right around the corner and everyone loves personalized gifts. Maybe someone you know suffered the loss of a beloved pet this year...I can't think of a gift that would touch their heart more than something with their precious angel's picture on it. Pet-related life events are always foremost in my mind, but if you recently got married or had a new baby, why not commemorate it on a one-of-a-kind item? Free personalization on over 10,000 gifts, and they ship in 1-3 days. It couldn't be easier to order a gift that your loved ones will remember for years to come. (Or to treat yourself to something extra special!)


So on Saturday Mudpie and I will be celebrating National Cat Day together...lots of playtime and extra treats for my little girl followed by "Mommy and me" time on the couch, Mudpie on my lap snuggled up with our Mudpie throw blanket. Mudpie squared!

How will you be celebrating with your fur babies?

  9. What a nice throw to snuggle under! When it's cold previously standoffish kitties are now very friendly. At night I can't move because they're all huddled next to me to keep warm. I don't mind!
