There is 100% chance that these rose-colored mirrors will not be properly hung for at least one month. Anyone else hate hanging things on walls? 🙋🏽‍♀️Also—did you even notice the cat? 🤣 . . . . . . . . . #dspink #dtipetsonfurniture #pinkwalls #mycovetedhome #showusyourhygge #shoemyourstyled #makehomematter #homemagic #secondhandsanctuary #iheartthishaven #myhousehomemade #lovewhereyoudwell #myboldhues #interieuraddict #myeclecticmix #sassyhomestyle #mycovetedhome #colorismyjam #mybohotribe #printspatternstexturesohmy #greatthingscometothosewhothrift #planteriordesign #howyouhome #eclecticallymade #howwedwell #thisiswhyicraveinteriors #boldbohemians #bozestool #makehomeyours #houseplanthome #globaldecor

When leaving kids at home for an international trip in 1.5 days, but have limited time, do you: . 1. Clean for your MIL (who is kindly coming to look after your children and home) . 2. Find your passport, because you’re an asshole who doesn’t know where your passport is . 3. Start to sift through clothes and figure out what you’re wearing to the wedding you are traveling to Italy for and hope the dry cleaner has quick turn around. . 4. Spend the afternoon on Instagram pretending like none of this shit needs to get done. . . 1,2,3 … shoot! Let me know how you’d play this game (aka Kate’s obscenely unorganized life)! . . . . . #showmeyourboho #thejungalow #planteriordesign #mybotanicalbungalow #stellarspaces #lonnymag #thedecorsocial #theeverygirlathome #thenewbohemians #crashbangcolour #colourmyhome #inmydomaine #apartmenttherapy #myhomevibe #mybohotribe #mybohohome #heyhomehey #houseplantclub #greenyourfeed #mybohoretreat #landgathome #plantbabies #currentdesignsituation #plantsofinstagram #plantladyisthenewcatlady #ihavethisthingwithplants #eclecticallymade #myeclecticmix #instahome #vintagehome

Have you met our unofficial mascot? This is Mona, posing here with our latest estate sale find and doing her best “blue steel” expression. Her full name is Ramona Quimby after the precocious tomboy from the Beverly Cleary series. Mona enjoys making out with her bed, taking her humans on walks, sniffing loudly at the front door to intimidate passerby in the hall, and eating anything that falls on the floor. She also needs to have her butt touching the nearest human at all times. One minute you’re standing at the sink washing dishes and the next thing you know there’s a frenchie butt nudged up against your foot. 😂 That’s Mona! Tell us about your furry family members! 👇

Some from me. Everything is fair game to be laid upon by my cats. Felix taking over my book. And yesterday morning I walked past the bedroom and caught this snuggle-fest with Felix and Frankie. The ferals don’t understand the concept of personal space when it comes to their best buddy Felix. He graciously tolerates this behaviour.

Rainy says:

Feral? Most probably no.
Stray? Probably yes.
Feral and stray cats can sometimes be difficult to tell apart, but there are distinct differences. Stray cats can readjust to living with people and can be adopted as companions. Adult feral cats are not socialized to people, which means they cannot be adopted. Feral kittens can be when caught in time.
I have taken in many stray cats. Several veterinarians explained the difference between ferals and strays. Interesting subject.

KiM says:

Thank you for the clarification Rainy, however I am perfectly aware of my cat situation and the difference between ferals and strays. I discovered a litter of kittens while walking home one day who lived in a dilapidated garage in downtown Ottawa. They were feral and terrified of humans and only after a few months did they let me go near them. After many months of no one doing anything about this I trapped them and took them home, where I spent many MANY hours trying to socialize them. 3 or 4 years later and I cannot pick them up for fear I’ll lose an eye and one of them spends 95% of her day hiding in the rafters of my basement and only comes out to hang out in the catio if the house is quiet or for food.
