Is That Stoopid Kittin Shredding Toxic Houseplants?

Our newest household addition, affectionately referred to by Banzai as “That Stoopid Kittin” is a handful. When he’s not peeing on the duvet in the master bedroom, he’s annihilating the few houseplants we have inside the house, chewing them to tatters.

His ongoing cat topiary project, in which he creates images […]

5 Catastrophic Ways to Catify

When I think of my experience at CatCon in LA a couple of months ago, I have a vivid memory of seeing an “Indiana Jones cat bridge” and swearing that I must. have. it.

7 Things to Know if Your Cat Won’t Shut Up

Banzai is the most vocal Siamese I’ve ever had, and after Mao, that’s saying a lot. Sometimes it’s helpful–for example, when he wants to come in the house or is ready to eat. When he was younger, he would joyfully announce when he was laying pipe in the litter box. Mostly it’s just an incessant […]
