Orivet: Feline DNA Testing Review

Orivet: Feline DNA Testing Review & a Giveaway

There is no doubt that Maggee chose us, when we went into the room to “get to know”: her she jumped in my lap and then my husbands. We took that as a very definite move towards he choosing us.

Not a lot was known about our girl, we know she was shuttled between homes due to issues beyond her control, and had a litter of kittens. We both love our girl so much, we want to know more about her including her health and hereditary things that can affect her.

When I had the opportunity to get her DNA tested by Orivet I was super excited to glean a little more about a creature that I really know nothing about.

How to Draw Cats and Kittens: A Complete Guide for Beginners Review and Giveaway

As regular readers know we are cat fans around here. As fascinated and interesting as I find cats, I can not draw them. I have tried to draw cats in the past but they come out more alien than feline. Recently I receive a copy of How to Draw Cats and Kittens: A Complete Guide for Beginners by J. C. Amberlyn and I immediately knew that this may be just what I need to finally learn to draw my beloved cats.

Chewy Influencer: July 2017 – Fresh Step Litter

Fresh Step Hawaiian Aloha Scoopable Litter Review

I am so excited to announce that we are Chewy.com Influencers! What this means is that each month Chewy.com sends us an email with a selection of items that are for dogs, cats and small animals (birds and hamsters) for review. The items range from food, snacks, and supplies needed for pet guardianship. Each month I will bring you a different product that Maggee and Murfee will personally try out.

I was super excited to not only be accepted but then to have the chance to pick an item out for Maggee and Murfee this month. As I scrolled down the email, one item caught my eye – Fresh Step Cat Litter.

Cat Litter is a product that we always need and is always used. Since my cats are highly adaptable I had no hesitation with this litter change, since the brands we normally used would be different than this new one. I chose the Fresh Step Hawaiian Aloha Scoopable Litter and eagerly waited for the ubiquitous Chewy.com blue logo box.

Pura Naturals Pet: Kitten Shampoo Review

Pura Naturals Pet: Calming Lavender and Tearless and Calming Shampoo Review + Giveaway

If there is one truth in my world, it is that I tend to be over protective of my cats. As far as I am concerned my pets are family and as such I am very protective of any product that goes on their bodies, or in their bodies.

I feel as though it is my job as their guardian is to provide the best possible life for them, while giving them everything that they need.

Given the fact that I have such a concern about what my cats are exposed to I am always looking for natural and organic products. When I heard that Pura Naturals Pet was expanding their product line to include 2 new products for cats I was curious.

Late for the Sky: Cat-Opoly Review

Late for the Sky: Cat-Opoly Review + Giveaway

cat-opoly-and-maggeeIt is not a big secret that I love cats, but what may come as a surprise is that I also love board games.

A couple of years ago, on a rainy day, Jason and I ventured to our local toy store with the intention of purchasing a couple of board games. We wanted something nostalgic, something trivial and a property trading type game. After about an hour looking and comparing the various qualities we ended up with three games, of which we played all of them when we got home that day.

At the time I recall wishing that there was a way to fuse my love of cats and my love of games into one spectacular cat themed game. While my idea was on the mark, somebody beat me to the idea with Late for the Sky’s Cat-Opoly.

Stampin’ Up – Pretty Kitty Stamp Set Review + Giveaway

pretty-kitty-stamp-setSometimes as cat guardians we are put into funny and odd positions. As the humans we are the source of love and attention, but we are also responsible to clean their litter boxes and clean up hairballs when they invariable come up.

It is difficult for non-cat owners to understand why after the bad we would continue to love these furry mess makers. One of the best ways that I express my cat lady love to my friends is through the sending of cards. The stamps that I like the best are the ones that integrate my love of cats.

The Summer KitSummer is a constant “on the go” time, if it is not the beach it is amusement parks, family gatherings and even overnight excursions. Many times with all this travel the cats are left and home, and while out of sight, they are not out of mind.
