Littlebit Passed Away

April 29, 2019
Littlebit Passed Away

Hello everyone,

As you can tell from the title, my cat Littlebit has passed away. She was the inspiration behind half of this blog’s name. She was almost fifteen years old. I remember the day we got her. This couple was going to get the few kittens they saw and take them to a shelter and were having no luck. My dad handed my sister and I a fishing net, and we came back with a tiny white fluff ball, who had two different color eyes. I remember my mom holding her on her chest and swearing we were going to give her away. However, it was my mom who gave her name to her.

At the beginning of this month, I was already having a lot of things going on in my life, and was under a lot of stress. And unfortunately, it seemed like just another thing that went wrong when my cat started to go downhill. She was having a lot of trouble breathing and she was eating or drinking. We took her to the vet two or three times, and found she did have an enlarged heart. They had given her some medicine to try, and unfortunately the next evening she passed away.

It Has Been Difficult

With all the things going on in my life at that time, it really hit me hard that when my princess Littlebit passed away. It’s been a few weeks now, and I still have moments where I come home and expect her to be there, or I think I hear her meowing to come inside. I don’t want to make this blog post too long, or really, it’s just that I’m still not in a place where I can dwell on her passing without tearing up. So, instead, I will be posting some of my favorite pictures of her, and I hope you all hug your pets today. Because while some people see them as just animals, they are apart of our families, and when they are gone… It hurts.

Make sure you love your furbabies today. And for those of you who are having trouble grieving the loss of a furbaby, be sure to check out “The Rainbow Bridge

Thank you all for your love.

Say Hello to Littlebit and Patch

March 16, 2018

Hello everyone!

My name is Anna Maxwell, and this is my new blog Littlebit and Patch. This is not my first rodeo when it comes to blogging. I’ve had a few blogs in the past, my most recent was called Scribble Serendipity. I had a few reasons why I decided to move onto a new blog, but it was mainly due to my hosting. I had trouble with the blog host that I was using for my previous blog, but I can get into that in a later blog post.

What I’ve Learned From Blogging

It took me quite a while to come up with what I wanted my new blog to be. One thing I’ve learned from blogging is that it is a lot harder than it seems to figure out what exactly you want your blog to be. For me, I thought you could only be one thing, but I found myself wanting to branch out and do more. My blogs kind of ended up all over the place, and I feel like that’s what led them to fail. Or at least, one of the reasons.

With that in mind, I decided that for this new blog, I wanted to focus on two main topics: Lifestyle and Travel. I feel like with this setup, I can branch into other topics, but it keeps me focused on the main niche topics.

Why Littlebit and Patch?

As for the name, my inspiration for Littlebit and Patch is none other than my furbabies. Patch, my 14(almost 15)-year-old black labrador is a sweet old-man dog, and Littlebit, my 13-14ish fluffy white cat is a spoiled princess with heterochromia(two different colored eyes). While my furbabies are getting older, they have been such a big part of my life, and such a big inspiration for me.

My Goal

My goal for this blog is to enjoy it through my writing, photography, and experiences. I hope you all enjoy it just as much, and I can’t wait to start this journey.

Let me know in the comments below what you would like to see from me on this blog, and be sure to follow my Instagram for regular photos of my furbabies and my life.
