INFOGRAPHIC: Health Benefits of Cats and Adopt-a-Shelter-Cat Month

June is Adopt-a-Shelter-Cat Month! There are so many wonderful reasons to have a cat as a member of your family. I have three, all rescued cats, Peaches, Lottie, and Ozzie, and they bring such joy to me. There are big health benefits of adopting a cat as well. I found this infographic on those benefits to share today. Hopefully, this will get you thinking about adopting a cat from your local shelter in June. You can find lots of cat articles about finding the right cat to adopt, what to expect, and cat care on the Petfinder site. Do you … Continue Reading →
Annie and Her Crate: The Benefits of Using Crates for Your Dog

Annie and Her Crate: The Benefits of Using Crates for Your Dog

This post is sponsored by PetSmart®, and the BlogPaws Professional Pet Blogger Network. I am being compensated for helping spread the word about Containment Products and Education for your pet, but Robyn’s Online World only shares information I feel is relevant to my readers. PetSmart is not responsible for the content of this article. When my family adopted our Annie from a Needy Paws Rescue event at our local PetSmart® we really had no idea about dog crates and the benefit of crate training. When Needy Paws came to our house for the home check and brought Annie though, they … Continue Reading →
Love My Dog but Not the Dog Smell In My Car and #FebrezeCar Giveaway

Love My Dog but Not the Dog Smell In My Car and #FebrezeCar Giveaway

I have worked with Febreze products in the past and use their products. When SheSpeaks asked me to work on the #FebrezeCar program I was happy to accept (disclosure: this means I was compensated, but opinions are my own). The big reason is my Annie. I adore my dog but a big dog can have some big odors! There was never a better time for me to be sure I had Febreze Car clips on hand since she came to our family. Annie rides in my car and in Hubby’s truck – so we both need Febreze Car vents at … Continue Reading →
First Trip to the St. Charles Dog Park (St. Louis)

First Trip to the St. Charles Dog Park (St. Louis)

Today we took Annie to the dog park for the first time. Well, maybe she went to one before with her previous family but it is doubtful. This was a first for Hubby and I as well. We went to the DuSable Dog Park in St. Charles, Missouri (suburb of St. Louis) and it was a really great visit! It took a little bit of hunting to find the dog area of this park. There are three entrances it seems and of course we needed to be in the last one. Not a problem though but I do think it … Continue Reading →

Meet Annie: Our New Olde English Bulldog

Meet Annie: Our New Olde English Bulldog

You all know I adore my three cats, Peaches, Lottie, and Ozzie, but now we have added a new furry family member. Meet Annie! We adopted her right before Christmas. It was a totally unexpected adoption. I went to PetSmart to get some gifts for my cats and for other pets in our family and Needy Paws happened to be having an adoption event in the store. I passed by them but right on the end there was Annie just looking up at me and I totally melted. I know you other pet people will understand that pets pick us, … Continue Reading →

Must-Haves for Cats and Cat Owners

I am proud to be a cat lady! Growing up we had a cat most of the time and since I have been married we have always had cats as well. Admittedly, I tend to spoil my cats a little.

My friends at BOOMbox Network (#BBNshops) have collected another great assortment of items, this time it is must-have for cats and their owners. Please note that the links below are affiliate links and I have been compensated for sharing this … Continue Reading →
Cats, Dogs, and the Swiffer Effect

Cats, Dogs, and the Swiffer Effect

You all know I love my cats but having three cats also means a lot of cat fur and dander around the house. I swear they shed enough to make a new cat every week! Like I said though, I love my cats and that means I just have to find other solutions to help me with the mess that comes with them. Really, it is just like kids – they make messes too but we still love them no matter what. This is Peaches. She just had to jump on top of the box to sit – she does … Continue Reading →
National Dog Day August 26 and Dog Infographic

National Dog Day August 26 and Dog Infographic

They say every dog has its day. That apparently is true because August 26 is National Dog Day. I have had dogs over the years, but none right now, we are currently a cat family. Hubby really would like a dog but I am trying to hold him off until we move and have a bigger yard that we can fence in so the dog has a place to run and play. When we are ready to add a dog to our family he will come from a shelter or local rescue group like Needy Paws Rescue here in St. … Continue Reading →
