Why Cats Are Awful & No One Should Ever Have One

Cats. We’ve all encountered them, heck, some of us even share our lives with these little furry hatred-filled beasts.

After so many years of experiencing the world that is living with cats, today I’m going to be taking you guys through the pain that is having a cat.

The fluff

It will get everywhere. If, like me, you wear a variety of colours, no cat is suitable, because their fur will cover everything. And it doesn’t just stop at your clothes, it will cover your furniture, your floors, and somehow, against all laws of physics, be constantly airborne.

The claws

Do you have skin? Well too bad cuz cats just don’t understand that. If you’ve got an tiny area of exposed skin, you best believe your cat is going to slice it, beautifully. From a cold and collected swipe, to a highly unpredictable rabbit-like attack when you’ve leant in for a kiss. No one is safe.

The boundaries

These really no longer exist.Whether you’re in the bathroom, or you’ve just gotten up from your chair, nothing is sacred. Your chair? I think you’ll find it’s the cats chair now.

The cries

Automatically programmed to be of the same frequency and pitch of a child’s cry, we naturally respond to the sound of a cat crying. However, through no amount of pleading or bargaining will the cat just tell you what it wants. Usually a half dead mouse, we don’t understand it, and neither does medical science.


That pretty much covers why cats are terrible, so I hope you guys enjoyed this post!

If you hadn’t already figured it out, I am of course kidding throughout this entire post. I love my babes, and I love having them in my life. Let me know in the comments if you’ve got any pets, I love to hear about them! (Also I love to see them so please tag me @corinnebygrave in any pictures you might have!)

BLOGMAS Day 15 // Christmas ‘Pet-Style’

When you’ve got pets, a whole new world of Christmas is opened for you. From the cutest festive treats, to adorable Christmas themed jumpers, a pets Christmas is just as lovely, and a lot more adorable than all other Christmases.

So this year I’m showing you guys how my little guys celebrate Christmas!Christmas - pet style (1)Starting out with their treats, this year I got them a cat-friendly advent calendar, that fortunately splits into four pieces, so every day each one is guaranteed a treat. I also picked out a Christmas tree toy (that’s filled with catnip!) and adorable Christmas stocking that contains toys, biscuits and even cat grass!Christmas - pet style (2)As you can see, each of the cats has their own tiny stocking, which I put another treat in, for them to have on Christmas day.IMG_0641Milo is the chosen one for the Christmas style this year, as you can see him sporting an adorable festive jumper! Sawyer finds it quite enough that he wears a red collar, that we are occasionally allowed to stuff tinsel in.


And that’s how my pets celebrate Christmas! Let me know in the comments if you have pets, and how you spoil them at Christmas time!

Meet My Boys: Sawyer & Milo

A few years ago, well, precisely 3, I had what I can only ever explain as, a need. I have always been so happy with my pets, and I adore every single one of them. But 4 years ago I felt like I was ready for a bigger responsibility. I had a need for a kitten. Like all kids, I approached my parents, gave an outstanding speech about how lucky they are to have me as a child, and therefore the most fitting reward would be a kitten.

I was told no.

But being as tenacious as I am, I gradually began my plot to both prove myself, and annoy my parents. So began the year of non-stop-kitten talk.

Eventually my father gave in and told my mum to ‘just let her have a kitten already.’ And so the search began. By search, I mean one day of browsing the classifieds and Internet. Heck, I’d been waiting a year already, I wasn’t planning on waiting any longer. My mum even told me of a friend of hers, who had a newly pregnant cat, and I could have pick of the litter. But I would not wait long enough for her to give birth. Instead, I found a handsome black and white kitten, and I begged to go and pick him up immediately, but was told I’d have to wait until the next day. I couldn’t sleep a wink.

The next day FINALLY rolled around, my father told us he’d see us with our 2 kittens later on. I argued back, insisting I only wanted 1. 3 cats was more than enough for me, 4 was just silly. We went on the journey to pick him up. Sawyer Scott. He’d been called that since before I knew I was getting him. We got there, I fell in love. My mums friend texted me, jokingly telling me I could only get a kitten if I named him Milo. So naturally, I told my mum we needed to get another one, because Sawyer was already firmly named.

We left with 2.

Sawyer Scott Bygrave | 2 | Black and white

Ragamuffin. Prince. Sawyer is the embodiment of a handsome, cheeky, loveable boy. He IS his uncle Tyler. Everything Uncle Ty does, so does Soy. And what Soy doesn’t copy, he watches intently and demands to be a part of any activity.

Hobbies Include: Fly Hunting, Being persuasive, emulating uncle Tyler, sitting on laptops, rolling in soot, counting with his tail, picking fights he is not big enough for, being gorgeous and chasing Ginger.

Milo Taloola Bygrave | 2 | Golden as the sun

Lion-in-the-making. Refuses to wear a collar because he knows he is destined to be a wild one. Milo is much more a relaxed bystander. Observing everything. Silent until absolutely necessary. Trusting of a select few. You’re the most honoured in the room if he chooses to seat himself on your lap. I also like to describe My to people who don’t know him, as someone who likes to go everywhere either ass, or claws first.

Hobbies Include: Judging people while they sneeze, biting his nails (specifically on my bed, despite rule #3, no clipping nails on my bed), sleeping on pillows (despite rule number #2, no sleeping on pillows), obsessing over anything horse-scented and sighing.
