feeling catty

Update on Theo - he visited the vet got x-rays, poked, and prodded. Looks like he has some sort of bug that's upsetting his GI tract. Bland diet and some anti-nausea meds and lots of love. Hopefully that turns him around!

I recently created these laminated feelings cards for work.

I started by making a few and then kept adding to them. My favorite drawing is the catty one! (surprise, surprise!) I use these sometimes as a feelings check-in exercise - scatter them around the floor, have the person stand on the one they feel in the moment, then move around to other ones in response to the questions I'm asking. A fun way to explore someone's relationship with specific feelings.

Marvin's always a big hit at work! I know I sure love having him with me at the office.

Enough about work - It's Friday!! 
Have a lovely weekend!


  1. Good news that it's only a mild bug (presumably) that's upsetting Theo. Purrs he's over it soon and back to his usual self.

    I would say I'm feeling peaceful at the moment. Content. (Probably because I'm on vacation next week. Ha.) Those are a good idea!

  2. Theo looks like he is telling you he KNEW he didn't need to go to the vet. :) Hope he is 100% quick!

  3. We hope the all better finds you soon Theo.

  4. Poor Theo, I hope he feels better soon. Did the vet recommend a kitty probiotic too? That would definitely help too.Marvin is a cutie.

  5. Glad to know that Theo will be feeling better soon and that it was a bug and nothing more serious. I think Marvin looks more and more handsome (and happy) every time you share a photo--I can only imagine how much joy he brings to you (and your clients) when you're at work. He seems to be a natural therapy cat.

  6. Theo, we sure hope you feel better really soon. Marvin, what a nice companion you are for the work scene. You all have a great day.

  7. Let's hope Theo's meds and food work wonders for him. Marvin is a doll!
