This shy, all-black cat is looking for a cat-savvy home. He's had a difficult past, and he remains worried about people he doesn't know well. But with love, he can learn to trust again. Read his story and share! He needs our help.
Last month was an amazing month for cats at Willamette Humane Society in Salem. Due to the generosity of a donor in the community, senior cats and cats with disabilities had waived adoption fees, so they could head home with ...

The crew has been lovely as I recover from a broken leg.
Most of the time, the dogs and cats of the menagerie have a pretty easy life. They have warm beds, cozy sweaters, clever catios, awesome cat stairs, healthy food and a whole lot more. Their only real "job" is to pose for blog...

Have you been to this park in Salem? You should. Liam the #pug loves it!
When I moved Liam the pug from Portland to Salem, I was a little worried about leaving some of our favorite parks behind. He loved to romp and play in Portland's majestic and huge spaces, and I was worried we wouldn't be able...

Start off 2017 with two fantastic happy ending stories. In this post, I'll tell you about two hard-to-place #cats that found their forever homes last week.
Small and adorable cats like Fergus rarely spend long periods of time in the shelter system. People see these little faces (especially if those faces have traditional Siamese-type shapes or colors), and they rush to take thes...

For thankful Thursday, a small thing to be grateful for: When dogs and cats share their toys.
I firmly believe that dogs and cats were made to live together. My home wouldn't be the same unless I had both species sharing my home. My dogs are my public face, and they connect me with the world outside. And my cats are m...

My broken leg is healing nicely, thanks to the help of my sweet dogs and cats. Read up on their nursing skills.
It's been a rough week for the dogs and cats of the menagerie. As I mentioned in last week's Sunday Selfie post, I broke my leg while on an icy walk with little Liam and I spent several days in the hospital trying to get the ...

Want to take your catifying to the next level? Consider cat stairs!
You're looking at the face of one very lucky kitty. This is Popoki, and during the holiday season, she got a present most cats would love to get. The present? A set of cat stairs. Popoki lives in my writing studio, which is a...

Poor Liam and I took a tumble over the weekend while on a walk, and we just weren't prepared for an emergency. Learn from our mistakes in this blog.
Liam the pug and I go on a walk at least once per day. If the weather is good, we take a stroll two times per day. Regular walking times help Liam to feel a little more secure and confident, and walks help him to use his brai...

The Oregon Coast Aquarium is so fun! See a pictorial review here.
Typically, when I go to the Oregon Coast, I bring my dogs along. They run along the beach, bark at the birds, beg for food from the humans and have a good time in general. But sometimes, there are things I'd like to do at the...

Can cats and their humans share resolutions for the new year? They can (and some should!).
To cats, January 1st is just another day. They may notice that breakfast comes a little later than it normally does, or that party-happy humans are a little grumpier on the 1st than they might otherwise be, but cats may not a...

Learn more about the sweet dogs who also live in my menagerie.
I spend a lot of time on this blog talking about cats. I have five permanent residents of the menagerie that have wonderful stories and adorable faces, and I often highlight what they're doing in the posts I write. I also tal...
