13 Things Most Cat Owners Have Done

You don't own the cat. That cat owns YOU.


I love cats. Yes, I'm probably gonna be that "crazy cat lady" one day but that's okay. I've learned to accept it. Each cat has their own personality and I love them. Whoever said that when you talk to your cat that they don't understand you that's a lie; because I think cats do understand us. Cats are cute and cuddly and I sympathize for those people who are allergic to these kitties. Here is a list of 13 things that most cat owners have done (or maybe more specific things to me that I have done with my cats but I wanted to share anyway.)

1. Shown cats their reflection in a mirror and they think is what they see


I used to do this when I was younger, but I still do this to the one cat that will let me pick her up. The other cat I have is too big and she hates being picked up.

2. Tried to hold hands with a cat


Yep, I still do this. Constantly.

3. Lost one cat and asked the other cat where they are


Somehow one cat always finds that one good hiding place in the house and I have no idea where they are.

4. Gazed lovingly at your cats while they're asleep


They're just so cute!

5. Woken up earlier than expected with a cat staring at you


Creepiest thing ever.

6. You've taken so many pictures of your fur babies that your phone storage is almost always full and you think their selfies are hilarious


I have HUNDREDS if not THOUSANDS of pictures of my cats on my phone.

7. You've woken up with a cat on your head before


Sometimes this happens.

8. You're okay with some love scratches and bites


Cats love to bite and scratch, I think that they think that it's a form of affection and they don't know that they're hurting you.

9. You can have cats or plants but not both


Cats love plants!

10. Turn on the sink water for your cat to drink out of


Cats love running water but won't drink water out of a bowl for some reason.

11. Feeding your cat a little bit of human food because they look so cute eating it


Oh how they love to beg for food that they know that they're not supposed to eat.

12. Saying "bless you" when they sneeze


*Cat sneeze

13. Putting catnip on everything to your cats go crazy


Me: Look what I got for you! It's catnip! You love catnip! *opens bag

Cat: MEOW!

To The First School Pony I Ever Rode, And Still Love

Although its been around 9 years since I've ridden Change, I still remember all he taught me.


Here's some background. It was my 4th birthday that started my love for horses. My parents and I lived in this house that had an acre plot of land, perfect for the best birthday parties. This birthday party, in particular, consisted of ponies.

My father rented one of those party organizations to bring a few ponies for my friends and me to ride, and that very day I said to my father, "I want to ride horses!" And the rest was history.

I started and still to this day ride at Level Green Riding School, a barn that became a second home to me at a young age. My first lesson, at the age of 6, was on this magical little pony, who now barely reaches my hips, Change. He was this fiery little pony who had some attitude but was incredibly patient with the young students.

I took my first few weeks of lessons on him and continued to on and off ride him for about two years after. Although we did little real work other than walk, trot, canter, then finally 18-inch jumping, I learned a lot from him.

So to my buddy Change,

Selena Spezio, 2009

Thank you for helping me grow my love for riding. Because of you, I have continued to pursue my passion for the sport. I have kept with it, even when I felt like a failure. There would be times when I felt horrible about a lesson, but because of you I keep with it and understand that there is always room for improvement.

Thanks to you, I understand that the horse is never to blame, but that I should reevaluate my position, attitude or technique to better my relationship with the horse I am on. The love I have for these animals stems from the small connection my young kind had with you.

I learned how to be humble. The little things we accomplished together, like my first time ever posting, where I looked like I was attached to a pole just standing up and sitting down, was a big moment, but I know it only happened because you helped me out. Image if I was on a wild pony who had an attitude and was out of control, those big moments would have come a lot harder.

The first time we jumped, oh what a joy. Although it was a small pile of poles at first, I felt free. I really saw what it was like to have a simple connection with a being.

Change, you taught me control, composure, and to have a great attitude no matter what. Those times when you were having a bad day and the first time you tried to buck me off, instead of being in fear, I just laughed and kicked you along.

You taught me the fun of this sport, and for that, I thank you with all my heart.
