Tom the Cat is a Hospice Hero

Katris Cat Tower: Limitless Play for Cats ‘n’ YOU!

In the last six months, hubs and I have been drowning immersed in home reno projects.

Many purrs, Max! You are so wise! I have another question. As I was nipping at Big Sis Lily’s tail last night, she told me that I will not be a kitten forever. I’m okay with this–I want to get big and strong like Lily and Uncle Phelps. Lily tells me though that, once you […]

Ask Max Monday: A Max By Any Other Name Might Not Get Paid…

Who’s the Victor at Your House in the Food Bowl Tug-o-War?

I’ve been a cat lady all my life and have never seen two cats spar over food in quite the way that this pair does. They make the tug-of-war seem civil. No whaps, no hissing. Maybe they’re British cats.
