Hello, my name is Courtney & I'm a crazy cat lady!
It's true! If I could live on a kitty farm where I could get kitty snuggles all day every day, I would be the happiest gal on earth!
I'm convinced it's impossible to be stressed or in a bad mood when your getting loved on by a big ball of fur :)
Kitties > People
This is my best friend Magic & she will be 15 years old in June. A birthday gift on my 18th birthday & named after my favorite basketball team, the Orlando Magic.
Magic & I really have been through everything in life together. She was there to celebrate with me when I graduated high school, college, she has moved all over the place with me making our next pad feel like home. She was still kickin it with me when I got married, comforted me when I was preggo & now she gets to be my daughters bestie as well!!
Magic is definitely a member of this family! It would be hard to think of my lil'family without her. For a little fur ball she sure does have a large personality that just fills our household with joy.
For the most part Magic is the most easy going, lovable cat you could ever meet. She likes to cuddle 24/7 & she even let my daughter drag her around the house, unfortunately by the tail at times, during her toddler years without a single meow or clawing battle. If that's not an easy going, lovable kitty then I don't know what is!
However, all cats do have an evil side. The only time you will see a grouchy Magic is when she is HANGRY. That's right not just hungry, but HANGRY! It's crazy how your sweet and innocent cat can go from peaceful to full blown crazy in seconds, once they realize they haven't had any cat food in an hour. Hangry is why I firmly believe cats get there not so pleasant reputations from. Not sure what a hangry kitty is? Well, if you have ever encountered a cat doing any of the annoying behaviors below, then you have been graced by an all of a sudden evil hangry kitty.
1. I Can See The Bottom Of My Bowl. Are You Trying To Starve Me?
9 times out of 10 Magic will be meowing like she hasn't eaten in days, only to walk into the kitchen and see that she indeed has plenty of food left. The only issue is she can see the bottom of her bowl. One does not let a cat's food dish ever get that low. You're angry kitty will teach you this by harassing you until you fix the issue and make their bowl completely full again. Even if that means adding one more itty bitty morale of food to the dish.
2. There Is No Snooze Button On A Cat That Wants Breakfast.
Breakfast at 6am? If that's what hangry kitty wants then hangry kitty will do its darnedest to make that breakfast happen. The first few times your kitty does this, you will jump up immediately thinking your pet is the cat version of Lassie trying to tell you something important. However you will learn rather quickly that all your kitty wanted was more food. You can shut your kitty out of your room at night to try and avoid this issue & your hangry kitty will just meow that much louder to get your attention. You can make sure you fill the food dish before bed, but as you know from #1, once your hangry kitty sees the bottom of that bowl, time to wake the human up to fix this tragedy! There is just no winning here, so either invest in some ear plugs or just cave into the hangry kitty.
3. It's Dinner Time. You Can Play With The Internet Later.
Have work to do? Trying to FaceTime that relative on the other side of the globe? Well not a great idea if your ball of fur is hangry. Your hangry kitty will make your keyboard it's new bed and do it's best to give you a stare down while blocking your computer screen. Think you're safe using your cell? Try again! Your kitty will just purr & head butt that sucker right out of your hands to get your attention & lead you to their slightly empty bowl.
4. I See That You Have Returned. Feed Me Now.
Did you have a long day at the office and couldn't wait to get home to snuggle your kitty? Well your kitty has gone a few hours with their bowl not overflowing. Before you can get that cuddle session in, your hangry kitty will lead you right to their bowl to pay your cuddle dues. That cuddle session is going to cost you. Need to make a pit stop at the bathroom on the way to the kitty dish? You will have one hangry kitty scratching at that door trying to break in to make sure you haven't forgotten that you were gone all day & they are indeed starving to death. A hungry kitty can put a toddler banging at a bathroom door to shame.
If you couldn't tell by now food is very important to your Kitty! I hate to say it, but some days I think Magic loves food more than me.
Since Magic is a very important member of our lil'family, we make sure we feed her fabulously! Only great quality for my best friend. I want her to be around for as long as possible, so that means a proper Kitty diet!
We decided to give Purina® Pro Plan® Savor®Shredded Blend from PetSmart a try because it gives Magic the extraordinary nutrition she needs with an exceptional taste and it also gives her the advanced nutrition she needs to help her live a healthy, active life; something she’ll need being an older Kitty with a very active toddler for a bestie!
