WIN a Portrait of Your Cat

We’re always finding creative talent in the cat-o-sphere and recently were introduced to a wonderful pet portrait artist named Vicki Liu.

She did this beautiful 5×7 watercolor portrait (w/ gold leaf) of our two boys (photo below).

Always sketching as a small child, Vicki participated in elective art classes in high school, went onto MIAD for a year, with a focus on illustration, and ended up transferring to UW-Oshkosh to attain her BFA in Painting & Drawing.

Natural Disaster Preparedness for Your Cat(s)

The start of a new year is always a good chance to look back and reflect. 2018 was a year of great research in animal health, with some significant new opportunities in products and drugs for our felines.

Cat lovers are a unique, wonderful and close knit community. We share our successes with each other (our failures too) on social media, so we all benefit from the experiences of our fellow cat lovers, be it new healthy foods, great litter, fun toys or important advances in feline health-related issues. We encourage everyone to keep sharing their experiences.

As we look back on 2018, aside from the good, it has also been a year filled with natural disasters from coast to coast. Multiple floods, tornados, hurricanes, storms and perhaps most devastating the recent camp fires. All have affected us and our pets.

CATBOX – When Ordinary Just Won’t Do!

Way back in 2015 we did a post called – Why Do Cats Love Cardboard Boxes?  Check it out – you might be surprised at what we found.

Since then cats haven’t changed, but cardboard play beds and boxes certainly have! We caught up with the team at CATBOX who make these delightfully stylish cardboard cat beds.

They retain all the fun of a basic cardboard box, but add sizzle and sass to take them from ordinary to extraordinary (photo below is our own ginger tabby meowdeling his prowess as an astronaut and feline space alien).

Lost Cat? Tail it!

A few years ago the ASPCA undertook a telephone survey of more than 1,000 pet-owning households across the country to get a sense of how many pets have been lost, how many ultimately made it home, and how their guardians found them.

The study involved a random survey of pet guardians to find out if they lost a cat or dog in the past five years – and if they did, did they find that pet – and where did they look? Here’s what they found:

15% had lost a cat or a dog in the past five years – a lower number than had been anecdotally reported85% of those lost cats and dogs were recoveredThe percentage of lost cats compared to lost dogs was quite similar – 15% percent for cats and 14% for dogsCat guardians were less likely to find their cat – only 74% of lost cats were recovered, while 93% of lost dogs were recovered

59% of cat guardians found their cat because it returned home on its own; 30 percent found their cat by searching the neighborhood and only 2% of cat guardians found their lost pets at a shelter.

Katzenstreu-Matte von Pfotenolymp + Ultimativer Katzenstreuvergleich

Die heimliche Heldin des Alltags: Die Katzenstreu-Matte. Während der geschäftigsten Zeiten des Tages liegt sie bereit und rettet uns so manches Mal den Hintern ;). Denn gut aufgefangen ist weniger geputzt und tatsächlich haben wir bereits zahllose Matten getestet, die entweder zu klein, qualitativ eher unterdurchschnittlich waren oder schlichtweg  ihren Zweck nicht erfüllten und es [...]
