Moms Best Friend (Caturday Saturdays)

Luvas has been dealing better with the jealousy  I think. Whenever Xander is in his bassinet, Luvas will be on the couch with me, or when I sleep or nap Luvas jumps on the bed and plops right next to me. It seems Luvas is adjusting to the fact that there are times where Xander …

Changing Dynamics (Caturday Saturdays)

The three photos above are from when Jak and I were living in a tiny apartment. We hated that place. But we were a family, one where the dynamic was obvious. Luvas was my cat, and Emily was Jaks. In the evenings we would spend time together, Luvas sitting with me and Emily cuddling with …

Friends (Caturday Saturdays)

Luvas, as previously mentioned, has been great with Xander. Emily has been distant but seems curious about Xander. Well, this past week, Jak was with Xander and Emily and Emily was laying right next to Xander and Jak got a picture of it. I was so impressed since Emily is very shy. It seems like both …

Natural Born Killer (Caturday Saturdays)

Cats obviously are hunters and one thing they prey on is mice. Luvas and Emily are indoor cats so we wouldn’t think they’d ever have a chance to prey on anything. This morning, however, at 5 am, Jak was up making a bottle for Xander, and when he was getting the bottle in the bathroom, he …

Balancing Three Kids (Caturday Saturdays)

Luvas, Emily, and Xander all seem to need me at the same time. It happens so often I think they must plan it. When Xander’s crying, Luvas cries and checks on him, while Emily is all over me while trying to get to Xander. I have found it difficult to balance making sure they are all …

Smooth Transition (Caturday Saturdays)

Luvas and Emily have done an amazing job of having Xander transition into the house.  Emily sometimes sleeps next to the bassinet, as well as Luvas. They seem to be fine hanging around Xander. In fact, Luvas is curious about Xander, more so than Emily. Luvas often smells the bassinet and will hang out near Xander …

Getting Impatient (Caturday Saturdays)

Emily has been getting very impatient this past week. She is constantly in Xander’s area. She has jumped into his bassinet many times and is constantly jumping on the shelves and hiding in Xander’s things. She also has been sleeping at my feet at night which has been different. She is 100% Jaks cat, but has …

Can They Sense Labor is Near? (Caturday Saturdays)

I have been wondering if these two can sense that labor is possibly close. They have been going crazy all week! They’ve been jumping into the changing table and trying to sleep there. Emily even jumped from the changing table to the bassinet. I think they know something is about to change since they really …

Jealous Kitties (Caturday Saturday)

This week, we were getting things ready for Xander. Jak and I knew that we should wash all the clothes Xander has before he arrives, and so we went through the clothes and were organizing them by size. This took about an hour or so, but apparently, that hour really mattered to Luvas and Emily. …

My Cat Tries to Pay for Sex! (Caturday Saturdays)

Luvas has been quite ridiculous the past couple weeks. As mentioned in other Caturday posts, Luvas has this one Mousie of his. It’s white and he carries it around to give to me, Jak or Emily. Luvas brought me Mousie yesterday morning before waking up, dropped it and plopped down to cuddle with me while …
