12 months with Sullivan

Today marks 1 whole year since this little kitty came into our lives… and we are still so in love.

Having a pet is a big deal, so much responsibility! Before getting Sullivan, James and I were nervous. James had never had a cat before and me well I grew up with them. But we were nervous still, did you know a Siamese can live for 20+ years, that means Sullivan is going to be around till I’m nearly 50! How scary- that feels like a whole life time away…

April kittyThen: April 2014

No amount of research into his breed could have prepared me for how loving, loyal and clever this little cat is… He plays fetch, catches “fish” on the ipad (yes our cat plays on the ipad) and is so very talkative.

These 12 months with Sully have been so much fun, he has provided us with so much love and we love him just the same.


Now: December 2014 . See Sullivan’s kitty castle DIY here.

More recent photos and Sullivans growth can be seen over on Instagram – @Adventuresofsullivanthecat


PS: I am that crazy cat lady! Gasp!

Last weeks discovered links #15 – with a fresh new look

Lately I have been so overwhelmed by the abundance of beautiful and creative things all over the internet.

Side note: I am constantly fighting an inward battle about posting regurgitated content regularly on my blog VS my own original content less frequently…. I want to contribute to the beautiful things out there and be proud that I came up with that and shared my photos with the world. However I find that if you “want to make it” in the blogging sphere you have to get them stats up and the only way that can be done is through consistency. I am no robot and simply cannot post every day, so what is one to do? 

I have had great reviews about this series and so I will continue to do them… Here is what I have discovered (and loved) on the internet lately,
