And I’m even more excited to kick it off with Amy from The Blissful Bee. Not only is Amy super talented and gorgeous but she shares my love for cats. I had met her almost exactly a year ago on Hometalk when I checked out her Hide-A-Way Kitty Litter Box and I reached out to her after someone had left a really nasty comment on her Hometalk page. Well, our paths have been crossing ever since. A couple of months ago she included me in her first online magazine publication which you can see by clicking HERE.
She is a gifted Photographer and Graphic Designer and I love browsing through her fabulous blog.
Her cat Bailey is adorable and reminds me a lot of our Harry who died last May.
After a year of having Bailey, we ended up downsizing from a 2,100 square foot home into a 900 square foot home. Bailey is an indoor kitty and I was a little nervous that she wouldn’t have enough room to run around. After getting settled into the new house (and 2 days of her hiding under the couch) Bailey finally got familiar with her new surroundings. In fact, our current house is full of carpet and I think she actually likes it better than our old hardwoods (I can’t really say the same, but eh what can ya do)! We hear her cutting from room to room at full speeds and we know she is just so happy, which makes me happy. The only downside to the move was losing our large laundry room, aka her litterbox room/eating area. We eventually found a solution to that problem [found here] when I posted about her DIY Hide-Away Litter Box.
Bailey has really loved our new house and tends to input herself in just about every project I am working on. People might think I intentionally put her in my photos (because she’s in so many of them!), but the honest truth is Bailey is a curious kitty who just wants to be in the action. In our house we don’t have any cat trees or cat furniture, so I tend to let Bailey roam the house as she pleases. We leave all the windows open for her to look outside and allow her to get on our furniture as she pleases (for the most part). I also let her sniff around while I’m working on a project. She loves getting into my materials and supplies and tends to find new toys with each project! Here are a few examples of her “helping” me with my projects…
So if you haven’t already noticed, I have a bit of a Bailey addiction. I’ve decided I’m ok with it though. I mean, look at her! She’s pretty darn cute if I say so myself. Thank you so much Julia for having me on your beautiful blog today!! It truly is an honor and I am so thankful we were able to meet through our mutual love of animals. Happy Friday everyone!!
I couldn’t agree with Amy more about the joy I get from having my cats as our family members even though they are a lot of work, especially when you have multiple cats.
She also proved that a home can be clean and pretty with your little creature(s) being part of it.
I hope you enjoyed reading about Amy and her Bailey. I’m planning on having more guests in my pet series and there will be dogs too.

I will be busy with wrestling activities for most of the weekend. Ouch, don’t even want to think about all the bleachers. They make everything hurt.
Have a great weekend.
