Cats & Tuna Juice

Image

For as long as I can remember Manly Man has been giving our little girl Aurora tuna juice as one of her favorite treats. It’s a convenient treat because whenever he opens a can of tuna he has to do something with the leftover juice an otherwise it would go down the drain. My boy cats have never really cared about this treat but Aurora goes nuts. I’ve mentioned this to people and usually get the response “OMG I never thought of that!” So here you go, a little trick to make your kittie’s day, enjoy!

Meet Aurora

This is my baby girl Aurora, though she’s no baby anymore as she just turned 10 years old. She’s also been a grumpy old lady for many years now. She’s the one in charge in our house and she doesn’t like anyone other than Manly Man (husband). A friend of a friend’s cat had babies and we went to pick her out. She was about 6 weeks old and I chose her because of 2 reasons a. she had a white bib and white paws and b. she climbed to the top of a scratch post over all the other kittens.

We’ve had Aurora almost the entire time I’ve been with my husband and the two of them bonded immediately over naps and tuna. She adores him beyond belief, follows him everywhere and they even have conversations. I know she loves me but more in the way a kid love their mom that annoys them all the time. Her adoration for him makes me so happy an I can overlook that she doesn’t give me the same attention. However, she has her moments, once in a blue moon, where she gives me attention…it usually last about 45 seconds but I stop whatever I’m doing and enjoy it.

People don’t tend to understand Aurora because she’s not the sweet an cuddly type cat. She can be really aggressive and doesn’t come across very nice. Hell, we gave her the nickname Lucy-fur very soon after adopting her for a reason. But she’s so beautiful and nobody naps quite like her. She has such a big personality and is afraid of guitars. She has white spots on her stomach that make it look like she’s wearing a bikini and she has what we call a “coffee stain” under her chin. Her tummy that has hung down ever since she was spayed we call her “flubby.” One of the most special things about Aurora is nobody loves or understands her like we do, she’s our little girl.
