Catweek: Juno and the cactus flag

Juno and the cactus flag - The cat, you and us

Hello again! And that’s the third in the same week, wohoo! although it may sound a dim milestone for hardcore bloggers that post 5 times a week we are really proud to be able to deliver more than two posts in a row. Today, we have our most special guest: Juno!

We realized that although we talk about Juno from time to time to all of you, we hardly explain her little rituals she has with us, so let’s make amends thanks to the catweek.

We have been remodelling Juno eating nook because we were getting a little tired of her old placemat and the old bowls and wanted to give it a little twist. We went to IKEA and bought her a stripe-y placemat and two bowls: brown for the food and blue for the water, and then added a special touch with the Wandering Orion’s cactus flag Santa brought us for Christmas. The girls behind Wandering Orion told us that they loved Juno, so I think it makes the most perfect sense that the flag has ended to be part of her assets.

Juno just caught me! Her eating nook is usually on the kitchen but we moved it to take some pictures. We can’t fool this witty kitty!

Juno has a ritual every time she wants to eat: she comes searching for us and request us to feed her. When she realizes that we are seating on the floor next to the eating nook, she caresses our hand and purrs. Who can resist her sweet sign of love? I definitely can’t. I always run to her and feed her a few dry cat food grains. Juno always has her food bowl available because she is not a big eater, thus I see her requests as a pure sign of love: she doesn’t need to ask for food because she can always feed herself, she asks for it because that’s a bond between us.

Does your cat/dog/fur companion have eating rituals? I would love to read them!

  1. Juno’s eyes are so big, and her little nook is so adorable (and she’s also adorable herself)! The flag is such a nice touch :D -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s

      Thanks Audrey! She has big rounded eyes, somehow Margaret Keane paintings come to my mind when I see her :)

    Awww that’s the sweetest :) I lover her little food/water area upgrade and love her food ritual! Gremlin isn’t a big eater either, I’ve been feeling semi bad lately, because normally we can leave his food out all day and he comes in and out and munches but now we have to put his food bowl away, during the day because peaches will eat it all in two seconds. Not sure if there is a clever solution for that problem or not!

      Oh, poor fella! I guess he is not very happy with the guest eating his food, not sure about a solution though. We had a problem with Juno not drinking enough water too so we have set two bowls in very separate areas of the house and she is now more tempted to drink, but I don’t see if this could apply or not. Big love to Gremlin!

    so cute! piri had his own little eating nook but now it’s in the kitchen and it’s not really a nook cos our kitchen has a weird layout but still it’s “his spot” lol i love that banner~~

      We maybe should add some letters as you do with Piri. I totally stole from her your adorable heart for our walls, but I know that I should be “a grown-up” giving it back to her and put it in her spot ;) You definitely inspire me to make more things for Juno as you always have so much thoughtfulness with everything for Piri.

    We had a problem with Gremlin and water too, he would drink out of the tap but not out of his bowl, we naughtily used to turn the tap on for him to drink, but it’s pretty wasteful and we live on tank water so we have to be careful. Ben ended up buying him a cat water fountain, not the cheapest but he definitely drinks out of that, something to do with the running water. Let’s just say, cat’s are odd :) :)
