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

Thanks for your wisdom Max! Just to clarify, Human Daddy didn’t kick me–it certainly wasn’t the famed Bunny Kick of Death, which big sister Lily is working hard to teach me–he simply moved the foot I was attacking off the side of the bed, i.e. out of bounds. As I was anchored to that foot […]

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

FreeKibbleKat Comes Full Circle with FreeKatLitter.com

Tsk, Tsk, Tsk: Trash those Ticks with One Quick Spritz

Ticks are gross. They give me the heebie jeebies. There is absolutely nothing worse than getting all lovey with Tripper only to discover a hard little bump on his skin.

Mid-Century Modern Feline Style

  If cats were Mad Men, how would they feather their nests? They’d fill their mid-century modern cat houses with retro chic objets d’art, no?
