New Year, New Adventures At Home

If you follow us on social media then you may have noticed that we had some changes at home a few weeks before Christmas. Just when I took on a last minute press trip to Stoke-on-Trent my Mum moved in with us. I did obviously know the weekend when she’d be moving in beforehand but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity and Mum completely understood. Luckily, I went away with other bloggers so John and Erin were at home to help her get settled in. I came home to a bit of a crazy house which was to be expected.

With any rescue cat they will have been living in a completely different place, with different people and maybe with or without children. When you bring them into your home, getting them settled might take a while but there are things you can do to make things easier, for both you and them.

Welcome To The Family Jinx

A few months ago I wrote about both of our rabbits sadly dying within a couple of days for each other. At the time we said no more pets, at least not for a while. As time went on I particularly felt like something was missing. The house and garden was too quiet. It just didn’t feel right any more. We’ve had pets since we moved into this house so it definitely felt wrong without one. For quite some time now Erin had been asking for a pet cat. I was unsure at first. It seemed too soon. But, Erin

A Home Without Pets

You may have a read one of our posts a couple of days ago where we explained that one of our rabbits, Mopsy, had passed away. This was a really hard day for us all, me especially I think, and I had just been coming to terms with the fact that he was gone. Erin also seemed to have understood that he’d died and he couldn’t come back after we explained what had happened to her. We thought that we could get on with things and make a new normal for us all. After a really nice day out on

How To Help Your Child Deal With The Death Of A Pet

On Friday night our pet rabbit Mopsy sadly died. When I was cooking dinner on Friday I just happened to look out of the window and I saw him laying on the floor so I immediately went out to him. The second that I saw him I knew that was it. Mopsy was around 5 and a half years old which for a rabbit, is pretty good going. We got him when we moved into this house and he got ill quite quickly. After 4 rounds of medication the vet said it wasn’t working and that Mopsy wouldn’t live for another

Why We Use A Pet Sitting Service

Back when we still had Jackson we were forced to put him in kennels if we wanted to go away for a weekend on holiday. Jackson luckily loved spending time there even if the staff said he was far too excitable for a dog of his age (he’s only just turning 3). Anyway, we sadly had to re-home Jackson and we no longer had to think about this kind of thing. Then, we took in my sister’s cat for a while and were back to thinking about what we would do when we went away. Pet sitting was something completely
