Bird Watching: Spring is Here!

Written by: Holly, A Pet’s Life

Spring is finally here!

The grass is turning green and the birds are starting to chirp…And you know what that means? It means I will pretty much only see my cats’ backs – they are too busy bird watching!

5 Reasons Why Pets Are Not Good At Hide-And-Seek

Written by: Holly, A Pet’s Life

I doubt anyone has ever tried to play Hide-And-Seek with their pets, and with good reason!

5 Reasons Why Pets Are Not Good At Hide-And-Seek

1. “I can’t see you, so you can’t see me.” I remember being very young and attempting to play hide-and-seek with my sisters. I made the mistake of thinking if I close my eyes the seeker won’t be able to find me! Epic fail.

2. “I’m squished, so this must mean I am in a good hiding spot.” This is not always the case! Check out my boy Yoda below in an incredibly poor hiding spot.

3. “Hiding behind the curtains is the best place!” This is a rookie move – yes the curtains may look like a good location to hide, but it is often the first place for the seeker to look. It doesn’t help when you aren’t totally behind the curtains either…

Another example of a curtain/window blind fail:

4. Making too much noise! Even the best hiding spot is useless if you can’t keep quiet. Buddy (below) likes to chew on everything, so you can hear him no matter where he is!

5. They love us too much! Why bother hiding when you could be snuggling or playing? :)

4.18 1Pets make life so enjoyable. They can inspire us to be better people and they have the ability to show us what true unconditional love and friendship look like. Coming home to a furry face (or a few furry faces!) after a long day of work is very rewarding and comforting.

I never knew how much I loved animals until I had a pet. It sounds simple and perhaps obvious, but it’s true! Observing how others treat their pets (or my pets) also tells me a lot about that person – are they kind? patient? generous?
