Welcome To Wordless Wednesday At Create With Joy!
September Is Healthy Cat Month
September is Healthy Cat Month – so what better time is there than now than to celebrate the special bond that you share with the special cat in your life? This Wordless Wednesday, I invite you to grab your camera, to snap a photo of you and your favorite feline, and to immortalize it in a Meow Masterpiece – I’ll show you how to do that in a moment!
For my shot, I photographed Magellan enjoying an intimate moment with his Dad after he’d been gone for what Magellan considered way too long a time!
But first, let’s kick off the fun by sharing some of the results from the Purrfect Together Survey – a survey conducted by the cat-loving folks at Meow Mix to see what cat parents from all around the country had to say about the special bond they share with their precious kitties!
First things first – according to those surveyed, 83% of cats love taking naps with their humans! Now I’m sure that those of you who have seen my bed-hogging cats and have experienced this phenomenon for yourself are vigorously nodding your head, but a few of you are probably puzzled. Who are the 17% of deprived humans who don’t get to experience the joy of napping with their cats – and what do they need to do to turn those numbers around?
Next, just as mothers are conditioned to understand their baby’s cries, pet parents are programmed to understand their cat’s caterwauls – and trust me, cats are determined to cry, wail and carry on until even the slowest among us understand their needs! Even though Maine Coons fall somewhere in the middle of the spectrum when it comes to verbal communication – many are known for their sweet trills – some Coons like Tsunami make no qualms about making their needs know, whether it’s cat treats, cat nip, or just a snuggle partner!
Finally, nothing makes a cat happier than receiving a spontaneous, unexpected treat from the person who they love the most! Magellan is particularly treat-oriented – he loves to snack in-between meals – while nothing makes Tsunami happier than being fed out of the palm of my hand!
Did you know that 55% of cats love chicken-flavored treats? Hands down, all things chicken are the favorite of my beloved Tsunami!
Now for some exciting news? Meow Mix just released a brand new culinary-inspired food made with real chicken or salmon called Bistro Recipes – a classy meal for a classy kitty! You can even download a coupon for $2.50 off any bag of their Meow Mix Bistro Recipes when you visit!
And here’s the best part! Meow Mix has also created the Purrfect Together Portal, where you can convert the digital photo of you and your cat into a Meowsterpiece – a digital “oil” painting that helps you express and immortalize your cat-love on canvas!
Once you select the right look and feel with the art style and frame, you can download, share, and even order a print to hang on your wall!
Here’s the Meowsterpiece I created from my original photo – what do you think?
Be sure to share your feline photos and Meowsterpieces with us at Wordless Wednesday – and be sure to share your art on social media using the hashtag #PurrfectTogether!
Disclosure: Magellan and Tsunami received a Bistro Bundle as thanks for participating in this Meow Mix campaign.
