If you couldn’t tell, we really love our cats Mika & Sebastian. And for the most part, I think they love us back. We’re a family – we fight, we hug, we annoy each other, we cuddle, and no matter what happens at the end of the day we have each other.We adopted our guys from FurKids, a cage-free shelter in Atlanta. While we wanted to take all of them home, we were especially taken with one that had a bit more personality. Mika was one of these guys! He was known as the escape artist and I immediately related to him not wanting to be confined to one space and his free spirit. When we started going through the adoption process, we found out that he had a brother that he’s bonded with, so we decided to bring them both home rather than splitting up the family.
Here’s Sebastian, the brother who looks like an Avatar:
He’s skittish and almost impossible to get into clothes, while Mika is more willing to comply if I want him to wear something.
They really have some human-like tendencies. One of the things that we both love is snuggling up in bed. But they don’t sleep like normal cats, they like to be under the covers and Mika often uses our pillows to rest his head. Jacob has even walked in while I was still sleeping and Mika was spooning me. He likes to be big spoon.
I really love their companionship and how they can always cheer me up when I’m having a bad day.
The one thing I don’t like is cleaning their poop. No wonder they think they’re the center of the world; humans scoop their poop for them! Jacob usually does all the poop scooping, so that’s been a nice way to avoid it. But regardless, we still deal with all the issues of litter. Since we’ve been living in apartments for the past couple of years we’ve had to control the odor a lot more. They also tend to track litter all over the place. On the rare occasion that I do help out, the litter that we’ve been using is heavy and I have a hard time dumping it into the box.
I was excited to try out Cat’s Pride® Fresh & Light® Ultimate Care™! They challenge you to test the 10-day odor control, which definitely proved more effective than the litter we’ve been using. Ultimate Care uses high absorbing clay to eliminate odor, and it comes in two formulations – Scented and Unscented Hypoallergenic. Also, since it’s light, it’s something that I can help with… at least the pouring part. ;) It’s also way less dusty (99.9% dust free) which makes it much better when we have to pour or scoop the litter. We always want the best for our guys and definitely see the difference in the litter. Here’s a little video we made:
