My dream home would be a quaint and cozy log cabin. That's an honest life goal of mine. What's more, my dream log cabin would have a library and reading room a lot like this one. Of course, there'd be lots of kitties there, too.
Happy Caturday to all!
Tip of the Day
Today's tip is to perhaps use books and reading sessions to help a new or timid kitty or pup get used to you. When some cats and dogs come home after living at a shelter, they can be scared of their new home environment, and they even might hide. A stray or feral you might be trying to help can also of course show fear towards you, no matter how good your intentions are. If you find yourself trying to get a timid cat or dog used to you, such as if they're a newcomer to your house or you're trying to help them, perhaps try reading to them. You can grab whatever book you're already reading, a book on your to-read list, a fun children's book, a newspaper, a magazine, or any other reading material. Then, settle in and start calmly and quietly reading out loud. Depending on the cat or dog and their reaction, this type of interaction can be done in short stints or for longer periods of time, and can even be repeated for a matter of days or weeks if it is helping. Though not guaranteed, this might help a timid cat or dog get used to you and the sound of your voice, thereby helping them feel more comfortable and more willing to come out of their shell.
