My other kids

 I am not only the mother of a teen son and tween daughter, but I also have two boys, of the feline kind.  I highly recommend a pet of some sort because these two fabulous felines love me unconditionally, during my manic and managed moments, even if they do interrupt my not-so-fun laundry chores, as you can see in the photo.

They are definitely the calm members of our busy, type-A  family!  We adopted our boys from the local humane society three years ago and my son named the fat black & white one “Tucker” and my daughter chose the name “Stan” for the slender orange cat.  They think they are my blog assistants since they love to cuddle up to me and my keyboard each time I log on!

So in addition to my blogs about beauty tips, parenting, family travel and food, I will also occasionally write about the boys, too.  I welcome any kitty advice or stories that you have as well! 

My fab feline tip for today are to try the Greenies cat treats.  They make them for dogs, too and are healthy and good for their teeth.  Each treat is less than two calories and that is crucial for us, as poor Tucker has been put on a diet.  (For the record, I’ve never had a fat cat before so Tuck and I are learning together!)  The treats have healthy vitamins and minerals, but DO NOT have artificial colors, preservatives or flavors.  I found my Ocean flavor bag of treats at our local Petco.  Stan and Tucker LOVE these treats.

And thanks Mom because my very healthy mother told me about Greenies.

Ok, time to make breakfast for the family, do the laundry, unpack and oh yes, pet and play with the cats!
