Just lately the cats and I have been ‘feline’ the need for me-time. I’ve previously written about how all consuming life with a puppy and a toddler is, but I hadn’t mentioned how difficult it is for my poor feline friends, Kitty and Earl Grey. You see the thing is everyone wants to give them attention, everyone wants to be their friends and play with them, but all they want is to be left alone. I mean you can’t blame them can you, an over excited toddler and a yappy puppy are hardly their ideal playmates.
As for me? Between being a parent (of the toddler and animal variety), working from home, housework and everything else, me-time just doesn’t present itself very often. Instead I listen to the constant drone of mooommmmm (where did she pick up that American twang?) while shouting at the dog for chasing the cats and chopping onions.
So, when Whiskas® got in touch about their Kitten Kollege School’s Out themed campaign the cats and I decided to get involved and make the most of unwinding and having fun, whilst enjoying our delicious treats of course! We sent Aria, daddy and Dobby packing, cracked out the cucumber slices, treats and toys and just chilled out. Pure bliss.
My cats have very different ideas on how to relax. Kitty is older and more relaxed, she loves a fuss, rubbing her head in mine and willingly providing kisses; Earl on the other hand, he is still a baby and prefers to unwind by going a little crazy; maybe it’s all the Whiskas kitten food we feed him. One thing all three of us have in common is that treats make us very happy. Kitty and Earl’s favourites are Whiskas Temptations, while I prefer a good old cup of coffee along with a bar of chocolate.
As difficult as it can be, we really should prioritise me-time more often, for both us and our feline friends, the kittens in the below video sure know how to unwind!
