Pawsome Pet of the Week - Cali the Calico Cat

Today, we are sharing our newest Pawsome Pet of the Week! Her name is Cali and she's a multi-colored beautiful ladycat. No, this is not the resident Callie the Calico of Pawsitively Pets but I think they do have a resemblance to each other. That is, in both looks and attitudes!

Cali is a calico cat, or maybe a tortie. She's not sure which. She is six years old and her nickname is "Lady Kitty". She acquired this nickname due to being the only lady in the house, besides her mom of course.

Cali was an abandoned kitten in Leicester, Massachusetts. She now lives with her human mama, two other cats - Tux and Newman, and two "goofy" dogs named Charlie Brown and Cooper in Spencer, Massachusetts.

Cooking Quinoa With My Cat #InspiredByCrafted

I like to cook at home and try new things. I am always looking for new recipes to cook for dinner. My family isn't so keen on trying new things, but I like it. It gets boring cooking the same old stuff for dinner all the time.

One food that I've been meaning to try for the longest time is quinoa. Quinoa is an ancient grain from the Andes Mountains. It's actually an edible seed that's high in protein and fiber. It reminds me of a mix between rice and couscous.

I finally decided to try quinoa for the first time after I saw that it was an ingredient in some of the new Hill's® Ideal Balance Crafted cat and dog foods. This was my inspiration to try something new. If my cat is eating quinoa before me, I think it's time to give it a taste.

5 Reasons Why It's Not So Bad When Your Senior Dog Loses Their Hearing

For many senior dogs, it's a common occurrence to lose some or all of their hearing. For the past year, Shiner's hearing ability has noticeably declined. Now, it's apparent that she can't hear most sounds unless they are really loud.

Sometimes, it does bother me. Like when I want to grab her attention by calling her name, but she doesn't even notice. Her recall was not great before, but now I don't even bother calling her to come inside. I'm much better off putting on my shoes to round her up back into the house from the yard.


In light of things, I started thinking about all the good reasons why it's not so bad when your senior dog goes deaf. I'm not saying that I'm happy about it, but just trying to embrace this new stage in her life. It's really not the end of the world, after all. Now, we just do things a little differently.
