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
Colorful rope dog leads have been all the rage in the pet accessories world lately — and I am obsessed! But, with prices ranging anywhere from $70 to over $150, they're a little outside most people's “dog stuff” budgets.

You'll learn how to make a dog leash that perfectly fits your fido's taste (and yours!). 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
If you’re a cat owner, you know two things about kitties: #1, They like heights, and #2, they like warmth. I can always count on finding my own cat in a handful of different places around my apartment, including either right up against the radiator, or high up on my bedroom dresser. If your feline is anything like mine, she’d flip over a DIY radiator cat bed like this one.
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
I’ve seen this phrase tumbling around on the internet for a while now: “Plant Lady is the New Cat Lady.” To that I say, why not both? I only say that because I am a die-hard cat lover who has recently discovered her love of indoor jungles. The good news is you can totally go crazy in both cat and plant departments – you just have to be smart about it. There are plenty of easily-accessible houseplants out there that are non-toxic to both cats and dogs. Continue Reading
This holiday season, a group of the Curbly writers decided to team up and each of us created a simple and stylish new Christmas ornament. We’re calling it the “Curbly Ornament Challenge” but there’s not much competition involved…just a lot of fun, seasonal crafting. See all of the ornaments here.
My Christmas tree is filled with my pictures and things that represent everyone in my family. This year I decided to make a little ornament with a sweet picture of my dog. Continue Reading
