Celebrate Why You Love Your Cat This October #PurrfectTogether

Our Cappy: Purrfect Together 

by Joan Stewart Smith, Guest Blogger
Stewart Communications


Before our beloved cat came into our home, it was my teenage son who chose him over a cacophony of cats at the pet adoption center. He named this gentle tuxedo cat “Capulet” because he’d just acted in a youth production of “Romeo and Juliet,” playing Juliet’s tyrannical father.  But the only tyrannical thing about our sweet-natured Cappy was the hold he soon had on our hearts.


It’s tough being a teenager. Because my son didn’t grow up with siblings, he faced a learning curve adapting to a willful fellow creature, as cats will be cats. Cappy was going through his own issues, suddenly facing a strange new world without his previous owner. But soon their relationship flourished. 

They say that 80 percent of cat parents believe they can interpret their kitty’s meows.  When our very vocal Cappy calls out, my son knows exactly what he wants.  Each time that happens, I am reminded that he chose the perfect cat for our family.

#PurrfectTogether
Create your own Meowsterpiece, like the oil painting at the top of this post which I created with a photo I took of Cappy. In honor of Pet Wellness Month and Black Cat Awareness Month, it's so easy to show your kitty how much they're loved by creating this wonderful free cat lover's keepsake.

We do not have a cat, but we do celebrate our pets! Pets are the best part of people I think!

Brianne Manz said...

We do not have a kitty's but we do have dogs so I can totally relate. That photo is so sweet!

Lisa Favre said...

This sounds so sweet! My best friend just got a cat recently so this is something I definitely have to share with her.

I love the name of your cat. We are not a cat family here, but I am not opposed to getting one in the future.

Ann B said...

I have to take some pics of my two cats to find my Meowsterpiece cat photo. I think I can tell what their different meows mean.

Cats always seem to know what you are thinking. I will have to check out everyone's Meowsterpiece cat photos.

Liz Mays said...

I love that it's free to make. I am SUCH a cat lady and I never expected it. If I could have a dozen of them, I would. They're the best!

Jennifer said...

We just got a new cat earlier this year and I love surprising her with new toys and treats. I'm going to have to create a Meowsterpiece of my own!

Mistee Dawn said...

I have two cats. There are definitely a part of the family. DO not know what we would do without them.

Meagan Ivie said...

Oh man, this makes me miss my childhood cat so much! Such a special bond.

Olivia Douglass said...

I have some friends that are cat owners! I'm going to have to share this with them!

Ckrusch said...

I love my cat! She's such a great pet and loves me so much!!!

Melissa Chapman said...

We have two rescue dogs and I had a cat growing up and I can say with all certainty that there is nothing like the bond between a pet and their person. I have seen how our three dogs have changed my kids in ways that are hard to articulate and after reading this post it seems that your kitty has had a wonderful effect on your son!

Pets in general can be of great value.
They form special bonds with us that truly make a difference.

Ya... I have 5 kids I don't wanna do pets haha but I must say that having pets around is good for the kids. They learn to be more gentle and kind and think about others instead of themselves.

Jennifer said...

If I could have all the cats I would but hubby limits us to just one. THis is a great service and I know my daughter will have fun with it.

I don't have a pet but I have a friend who has quite a few. I am sure she would love a Cat Meowsterpiece!

Pets give their owners so much, they'll never understand. Great to celebrate that bond. :)

Amanda Goodenough said...

I've always wanted a cat, but my mom is allergic! Hopefully when I move out I can adopt an adorable little kitten.

My daughter would love a cat, but we are dog people.
