Double tap if you have or had a furbaby that takes up a big space in your heart!
In honour of International Cat Day, I present Timon, who is no mere cat (get it? No MEERKAT?? 🤣). My fluffy boy came into our lives in 2008 and I honestly could not have asked for a better pet (…overall… I mean there was that peeing phase before L was born, but Timon finally straightened me out, and I figured out what he needed). He is patient, gentle, chatty, sweet, and his favourite place to be is under my feet. I have tripped more over this guy in 11 years than I have over anything else in my entire 36 years, but I have also been comforted by him through nearly every hard thing in my adult life. He is my furbaby, my friend, my good luck black cat, and my familiar. 🐱 ❤️ 💗
Originally intended to simply focus on book reviews, over time, KaliDesautelsReads has morphed into its own entity.
I write about issues that are near to my heart, be they political, feminist, motherhood, mental health, or, as the title holds, books.
A thirty-something Canadian woman in my mid-thirties, I have been "super married" to my high school sweetheart since 2006, and together we have two crazy, clever, kind, hilarious, wonderful kids.
My first book - How Not To Blog: Finding Myself, One Post at a Time is available on Amazon (in eBook formats for you clever tech readers, and paperback for those of us who love that new book smell!)
I have tried a podcast - it's still on Apple and Google Podcasts - but writing is where my heart is.
My life changed dramatically when my husband was diagnosed with Stage 3 cancer in 2018, and I am now a writer for a leading Canadian Cancer Non-Profit.
I am lucky enough to have a family that loves me and pushes me to be my best, even if it is outside of my cushiony comfort zone. I have a village of friends that nourish me, mentally, and spiritually.
Welcome to my thoughts. Sit down. Stay a while. Enjoy a cup of coffee!
