If you have pets who can and will wear pet Halloween costumes, you practically owe the rest of us that spectacle of cuteness. As a longtime cat owner, I am fully aware that costumes just aren’t practical for many pets, so please, do your duty and dress up your furry friend for the rest of us to enjoy (as long as they don’t mind, of course). Remember to post lots of pictures of your pet Halloween costumes! Continue Reading
It's pretty clear by now that cats are taking over the world. From global Instagram cat celebrities, to cat cafes, to enough cat-themed accessories to clothe an army, our feline friends have us wrapped around their paws. My own cat, Jax, is no exception — he is definitely the boss in our household. Now he's even got me making DIY cat toys!
It's THE LOOK. You cat people know what I mean. Continue Reading
Pets. We love them, and sometimes when we’re traveling, we don’t want to leave them. Whether it’s because your boarding situation isn’t ideal, or you just can’t imagine going on a vacation without them, you want to make sure you and your dog (or cat!) are prepared for a pleasant and non-stressful road trip. I’ve hit the road a few times with this furry lady pictured here, and after a few hundred hours in the car together, we’ve learned a thing or two. Continue Reading
I was a junior in high school when my cat, Donut, came into my life. She was a rescue from the local ASPCA, and she’s been my ride-or-die ever since. Because I was young when I got her, I didn’t understand all of her needs. Over the last decade of us living together, the space that Donut takes up in my home grows larger and larger – because like any other living thing, she needs more than water and shelter to thrive.

Have you ever seen the movie The Secret Life of Pets? The plot is pretty much spelled out in the title, but the premise is this: Pets, when left to their own devices, lead very different lives than their owners think. They have different identities, different interests, and get into all sorts of dramatic situations. The movie is basically Toy Story, but with cats and dogs instead of toys. Continue Reading

Recently, IKEA UK let loose 100 kitties inside their Wembley store. Why? Mostly just for fun, as I can tell. Although, they claim it was an ‘experiment’. Either way, it’ll surely cause some buzz.
Watch the kitty hijinks below, and stay tuned through the end for some lovely kitties getting comfy courtesy of IKEA.
Who doesn’t want their fur-children’s furniture to match their design aesthetic? Daniel and Valeria, for one…or two, rather. They decided to make their kitty, Lambi, a bed/cubby that would blend seamlessly with their flooring. The outcome is simple yet eminently stylish.
To hear how the couple made Lambi’s new hideaway, follow this link to Hindsvik.
To put it mildly, I’m not a cat person. No offense to those who are, I just have a terrible memory of driving downtown with my mother to the Board of Health with a dead cat in a five gallon paint can after it bit my brother. It had to be tested for rabies. I didn’t see the dead cat, but I imagined it inside that can. Eeeeewwww!
However, if you do love cats, you’ll love them even more if you don’t have to mess with a litter box ever again. Continue Reading
This is Leo, a cat scratching post that looks as lithe as are the fur-people that use it. Made of Zebrawood, it’s soft enough to give kitty’s claws a workout, but it’s hard enough to keep its shape. An 11″ diameter polished aluminum base probably adds to its Weeble quality. To read more about Leo, visit James Owen Design.
