Toffee🍬 For those of you who use DSLR. Meowmy would like to know which one is your favorite lens to take pictures of your cat? Meowmy’s favorite may be the Canon 100mm F2.8L cuz she loves to see all the details in our 👀💎
Old picture of bubbles, and one of her first times ever getting outside
Must have a blanket in mouth at all times •• Hodie is one cute, little weirdo! What quirks do your pets have?!
“Expecto Patronum!” ✨
Doesn’t Kafka look a bit like he has just cast a spell here? Twinkly-eyed. His hair all swept up by the force of it.
I am still at rest. Recovering from a concussion is hard. Listening to the Harry Potter audiobooks is helping me a great deal. After all these years, and having read the books over 15+ times, I still get teary-eyed when listening to some passages.
Between listening to my favorite childhood books and not being able to do much on a daily basis, I find that the time I would usually fill with activities or distractions, has now become a time I can only spend with my thoughts. I have had to learn to be more patient and do nothing.
Now I bare the screen of my phone again, I am spending a lot of my bedrest time on Instagram. I have noticed more clearly how involved many who put in a lot of love and work into their accounts, are with numbers. As am I.
Is that photo getting enough likes? How many followers did I gain today? Where should I put my hashtags? Does Instagram show my content to my followers? We have become dependent of the algorithm. I do admit, it feels unfair and frustrating when the content you created with such effort, is subjected to odds. However, when we let our feeling of success be dictated by engagement rates and page views, it sucks the joy right out of you.
In the world of Harry Potter, there are dementors who do exactly that. To defend yourself against them you can call on a patronus. In order to cast the spell effectively you have to think of something joyful.
So, what brings me joy? And you? Our pets. They are our real life patroni. They’re the ones I call out for when I’m in need. Ani who purrs on my stomach, Kafka who talks to me. They’re the reason I started this account. Because they inspire me. Taking their photos, writing and talking about them. That’s what makes me happy, and that’s what I want to keep in mind moving forward with this account.
I want real things. Not numbers. I want to learn to not care about stats. And if the feeling of obsession over numbers ever creeps up on me again, and it probably will, I’ll simply say: “Expecto Patronum!” and let the cats chase it away.
Pssst.. come here for a second.. and pull my paw 🐾💨
Do you ever 💨 around your humans? (And then blame it on your sibling?) 😹

Little Jakey will soon be going to a new home, I will miss him
Here’s a little throwback to make your Thursday better! ❤️
This is my kingdom - go and die Mufasa uhm I mean Zeus 😼💥👑 We would have been the purrfect cast for the live-action remake of the lion king, right!? 😹🎥
Keiner spielt mit mir. Dann spiele ich eben alleine.
Caught this little man red-handed trying to squish his whole body into this teeny tiny bag! 😹
Note to self: add “plastic bag” to the list of top 10 places where Hodie likes to relax✔️
Lookin more like a baguette than a loaf tonight 🥖
I think the blanket connoisseur has found his new favorite! Josh pulled out a blanket he’s had since he was little that his mom so sweetly made a new cover for and it is just the coziest thing of all time🖤
Finally Friday! After a long day of napping in the cupboard, Hodie is celebrating the arrival of the weekend by...you guessed it, napping again! Cheers to that🍻
Maybe if I just knit veryyyyy slowly, Hodie won’t wake up and realize there’s a big, fun ball of yarn waiting to be smacked around next to him 🐾
