Yay, July is here and it only means one thing... We have a new Fan of the month wohoo! This month we highlight Aylim and her beautiful kitty Sisu. This is our third consecutive month where we host our fan of the month promotion and we couldn't be any happier with all fantastic photos we've received recently, so THANK YOU! Aylim will take home a $50 gift card to spend on products from Smiling Paws Pets. If you would like to participate in fan of the month promotion keep reading as we have all the instructions on how to join written a bit further down.
Sisu came from the cat shelter last August. His birthday is unknown, but we suspect that he was born around May 2016 (so we celebrated his birthday on May 5 th this year, which is also Children’s Day in Korea).
Sisu is a Finnish word that describes their national character, which means grit, resilience, and courage in the face of adversity.
He loves to go into the closet and sometimes take a nap. But overall he is a very cautious and quiet creature and meditates sometimes on the bathroom mat. He seems to love birds and white mouse toys.
He attempts to wake me up at 6 am by meowing sweetly. When that works, he shows that he is pleased by licking my face or my arms. When it doesn’t work, he takes a little stroll around the house, trying to wake other people up.
When I wake up I change his water bowl, give him food, and then fix his litter box. I play with him in the morning, and after coming home from work.
It’s very strange, but I don’t have nightmares as I used to. It also gave me a routine in daily life, and a sense of responsibility.
He comes to me and buries his face in my arms. When he wants to say thank you, he licks my hands or my arms.
I would say humans should be reminded that cats have a higher body temperature than us humans, and their sense of warmth might be different.
I was searching through Amazon for a cat bed, and I found the perfect cat bed from Smiling Paws Pets
It would probably be a Mattatabi mini ball from Blue Mountains. It’s a small ball that smells of Mattatabi and Sisu loves to roll it around the house and play.
