Pal Of The Week- Meet Pizza Our Mascot


pal of the week Pizza

This week our Pal of the week is Pizza the Wonder Cat I adopted this laid back California cat when he was just a tiny kitten. Walking into my local animal shelter ten years ago, minutes before closing a volunteer walked in with a litter of kittens. He wasn’t even 2 lbs. when I first held him. It was kitten season at the time and I was allowed to take him home the next day to fatten him up. A few weeks later he went in to get sterilized. He has been a happy homebody ever since.

Life with Pizza my pal

He has been an indoor cat his whole life. As you can see, he gets all the attention he wants. Although some cats like being alone,, this big guy’s favorite hobby is snuggling and hanging out with the other household pet. This cat will do just about anything for some of his favorite treats including opening drawers to help himself. He was part of my inspiration to start this blogging adventure. Through most of my shenanigan he has stuck it out with me, this is no different. We have moved multiple times and with multiple roommates over the years. He is a patient loving cat. This is the first time in his where he could hang out with a dog. It took some time but they are now calm around each other, mostly. Even though the dog loves to bark, Pizza rarely swipes at her. Today, he is a daily part of the quality control team at A Wandering Pet. He is always testing products (and getting scolded for sleeping on the keyboard often). When not “supervising” he hangs with the other pet at home, living his best life. This is why I wanted to celebrate Pizza as pal of the week.

3 mos old
3years (the rebel years)

Today he is still very active. He does enjoy long naps on his favorite blanket. I am looking forward to cooler weather when he will want to snuggle under the blankets.

    My adopted Maine Coon cats knew more about store bought pizza than I did!
    I thought maybe you picked the name “Pizza” because your cat was like that.

      Haha At the time I was eating a lot of take out…. what started as a joke stuck…However, he is an adventurous eater…he is spoiled and does get snacks and people food like a dog. I have seen him eat weird things salad, garbanzo beans and the occasional pizza too 😛 He is the classic boy that gets caught swiping the food from my plate if Im not paying attention. Thank you for the comment
