pet, pets, pet mom, fur babies, life as a pet mom

I wanted to do something a little fun today, and I have seen a lot of these A to Z posts showing up on my Twitter feed recently. Some have more of a serious tone to them – like the A to Z of reasons you have to be thankful in life to help someone who is depressed – while others are quirkier – like I saw an A to Z of being a gamer, and A to Z book lists.

A good focus of my running around in town today was in an attempt to find a new formula of food for our cats… they refuse to have separate dishes, so I need something that both can eat – however Pippen needs to gain weight and Jinx needs to lose, so a tall order to fill!

This got me to thinking that being a pet mom is a HUGE part of who I am, and of my day every day. SO… Here’s the A to Z of life as a pet mom!


A: Adoption – I’m a firm believer in ‘adopt, don’t shop, all mine are rescues!

B: Bed Buddies – Never sleep alone again

C: Carrots – They fill my crispers, the puppies’ favourite treat

D: Dog Beds – At least one in every room of the house

E: Eyes – Watching everything you do (and everything you eat)

F: Fur On everything, my new go-to accessory

G: Gas – Indy is the king of it, he can clear a room!

H: Hugs and Cuddles – Love snuggling my fur babies

I: Intelligence – No lack of it, Dav keeps me on my toes every day

J: Jogging – With my girl, my special workout partner

K: Kong Toys – One of the few toys that stand up to my pups!

L: Litter Boxes – Everyone’s favourite part of cat ownership, right?

M: Mice – Hidden in every nook and cranny of the house

N: Naps – During the day, cuddled up with the pets

O: Obedience – After a great deal of training, they are so well behaved!

P: Pawprints – Often all over my once clean floors

Q: Quality Time – Spent with the babies, every chance possible

R: Rubber Balls – All through the yard

S: Scratch Post – One of the biggest pieces of furniture in my dining room +

T: Tails – Clearing tables everywhere they go

U: Urination – When Indy gets a little too excited hahaha

V: Vomiting and Furballs – Always a fun surprise

W: Water – All over the floor because Indy is a messy drinker!

X: Xtra Energy – Is there a way to bottle it? This crew never stops!!!! (cheating a bit, I know, but you find a word about pets that starts with x lol)

Y: Yearly Checkups – With our favourite vet, keeping them happy and healthy

Z: Zoo – Sometimes it feels like I live in one!!!


At the end of the day, I LOVE being a pet mom, and wouldn’t change it for the world!
