I make her homemade bandanas and dog collars but it’s really just for me, she only wears them for photoshoots and special occasions as she prefers to not wear a collar. 

Here she is in her homemade little mermaid inspired collar πŸ˜‚

BalletParker :  That is amazing. My boy always steps on the remote and we joke that he’s trying to put the pug channel on.

We play him classical music every time we go to work. I like to think it helps him miss us less but really… probably not. 

We have a dog carrier, a la a baby carrier, for him for when we hike and he gets too tired. Our friends definitely made fun of us for this. It is pretty ridiculous lol but I hate carrying him when he gets tired.

wildflowerz :  I have several heating pads around for the kitties to sleep on because our appartment is super cold and my rescue kitty is like a million years old and super thin and deserves a luxury life for his last years. So we have all of these heating mats for the kitties. And yeah, it could be that I lure them to my lap and bed for cuddles with heating mats. Not saying that’s the case, but….. πŸ˜‰ 

Also, my old man kitty has a hoodie and a yellow rainjacket for walks. Like on his leash. And it is way adorable and totally embarrasing and the rainjacket is totally overkill on the warmth but it’s also incredibly cute so I am not gonna stop… 

Here is a pic of Shiva on his mat in a box especially made by my daughter for his own personal luxury. πŸ˜‰

wildflowerz :  My girl cat likes to get inbetween the duvet and the throw on top of it. She can do it herself but she has figured out if she stands near the edge of the throw that “Mummy” will tuck her in. She totally doesn’t need me to but it makes me feel like a good cat mum!

I get VERY fussy about the kids having to sleep on the COLD, HARD FLOOR. I generally have blankets–including an electric blanket basically purchased for the animals–strewn about the house for their comfort.

My dog has a puppy play date twice a week with her best friends whIle everyone is at work. She’s on a Tuesday Thursday schedule.

She could probably do without, but hey it keeps all the dogs happy together and she’s not home alone bored! Here is last year’s Christmas picture with her besties, shes the foxy looking one.

wildflowerz :  We’ve left the tv on and I try to make sure it’s not politics or PBS. LOL! We will also leave a radio on, but really it’s to drown out the outside sounds so hopefully our dogs won’t bark when they hear a car door slam or whatever.

Do you ever wonder if they like what you put on for them?? I do! Like, do they prefer classical music or classic rock?? :o)

BalletParker :  That is THE BEST spoiled dog story evaaaa!!

chantillyc :  Hysterical! The one’s face on the left! I’m dying.

whoswho :   amanda1988 :  I LOVE dogs in clothes, so cute!

I keep buying my cats new toys and scratching posts. They don’t need anymore toys/cat towers/scratching posts, but I just love watching them explore a new thing that I’ve gotten them heheh. My favorite is a window seat that I installed just over the radiator. One of the cats now spends 99% of her time lounging the day away all toasty and warm above the radiatior, watching birds out the window.

Also, cat belly rubs. Those are 100% for my benefit…the cats merely tolerate it.

Doggy stairs at the end of our bed 😳 our two sleep with us and my older girl started having trouble jumping up…so we bought her her own set of stairs. 

Also handy for when we leave the air conditioning on for her and I leave my nightie on the bed because she likes to sleep on my clothes. We are PATHETIC πŸ˜‚

I have entire conversations with our cat like she’s people – lol laugh all you want, my kitty ‘gets’ me tongue-out

Also, we have sliding glass doors in our bedroom that lead onto the deck. The deck is totally snow covered now so even though we’ve only used it on a handful of occasions over the winter months, I still have a before-work routine of making our bed and pulling the curtain open, exposing the sliding glass doors we’re not otherwise using right now,  so that kitty gets her sun patch to lay in during the day. And I keep a sticky roller on our dresser because the bottom left hand side of our duvet gets fur covered- but it’s one of her fave spots to nap, we wouldn’t dream of closing the bedroom door while we’re out to deprive her of her favourite sun patch.

wildflowerz :  I leave the kitchen light on for our cat. It’s so dark in the apartment I like to leave some nice warm light for her. Lol.

I leave too much water out because what if? And this is for all of us byt it kind of works. We play piano music in the car to soothe the cat if we have to go to the vet. It actually soothes her a bit. 

+1 to leaving the AC on during hot weather for the cat. Then extra blankets in case she wants to gey cozy.  😍
