Fluffy - The Saturday Photo Hunt

Dear Readers,

I've joined the Whistle Stop Saturday Blog Hop and this week's assignment is FLUFFY!   The fluffiest thing in our house is our cat, Mario  When I started this blog my intentions were to keep it separate from Mario's, but here I am using one of his 400 pictures! Guess you can tell who ranks in this house.  Sorry, but he is the fluffiest thing we have.

I started out hunting for a good article on the importance of pet therapy.  Well, of course when you want something specific, you can't find it.   But I know you have all seen the articles at one time or another:   Having a pet is good for mental health, lowers blood pressure, good therapy for depression, good for overall health, etc.   Even nursing homes/assisted living facilities are getting with the program and allow residents to sometimes have a pet.   

Mario is all of the above for us.  He's not the most beautiful cat in the world, but he makes up for that by being super friendly and loveable and is good therapy for both Don and myself.   And, the fluff on his belly is super soft!

He is good therapy for both Don and I - gives us a reason to get up in the morning.  He shows unconditional love

It's nice to see more and more nursing homes/assisted living getting on board and allowing their residents to have a pet.  

Now - why don't you join the photo hunt.   



  1. There is nothing more thereputic than the purring and soft petting of a fluffy cat.
    I'm so glad you've joined the photohunters. I hope to see you next weekend at The Saturday PhotoHunt.
    ... and bring something 'Flat'!

  2. Fluffy, now that is making me think. I guess the fluffiest thing I have right now is my hair as I am having an extremely bad hair day! I think Mario is beautiful and I am so glad you and Don have him.

  3. my hero sweet boy! xoxoxoxoxoxo

  4. Mario we think you are super sweet AND handsome!

  5. There has to be an exception to every rule and you just met her. TW says I RAISE her BP and make her depressed. Sometimes, I even make her cry. Mario is one of the most handsome man cat's I know so don't say he's not pretty.

  6. Aw, we think Mario is very handsome and good looking. His wonderful personality makes him one of God's great gifts. Its the personality that counts; if he was nice looking but had a nasty personality life wouldn't be nearly so good. You love each other dearly, that's what's important. We had a cat that was no looker, but his personality made up for everything. He was one of the mom's best loved kitties. He passed away 11 years ago and she still misses him.

  7. My guinea pigs say "Piggies are the best therapeutic pets"
    I doubt that my sanity would be intact if they weren't here.

  8. He is adorable! I live in a house with too many critters to mention, but our cats definately rule! And yes, when I'm feeling my worst, they are the first to hop on my lap, lick my nose, and simply cuddle. I don't know what I'd do without them!
