There are no doubts that I am a fan of my pets! For as long as I can remember I have wanted to dress the cats up. I attempted to make Maggee a Ladybug costume this past Halloween, and I always use a cute hat for Murfee, but this it mostly because I have not found the perfect costume, until now!

John Paul Pet: Tea Tree Shampoo + Conditioning Spray Review

John Paul Pet: Tea Tree Shampoo and Conditioning Spray Review + Giveaway

A couple of months ago I noticed that Murfee had some white flakes as we brushed his tail, which was not a new issue as we had encountered this same issue with Maggee. Being the ever diligent cat owners we looked online for solutions. After what seemed like hours of reading we came to the conclusion that he, like his sister, has dry skin.

As luck would have it, shortly after I discovered this issue, I had the opportunity to review another John Paul Pet Duo. Since I had heard great things about the natural benefits of tea tree, I wanted to go a natural way to solve this persistence flake issue. Continue reading

Petstages: Mix & Scratch – Channel Scratcher Review

Petstages: Mix & Scratch – Channel Scratcher Review & Giveaway

Our cats are indoor cats, and as far as we can tell they are happy with this decision that we have made for them.

The reason that we made this decision was as selfish for ourselves as it was selfish for them. When we adopted them we debated making them indoor/outdoor cats, but since we live on a major road, if they happen to make their way out it could end deadly for them. For this reason, and about a million more, they are now happy indoor house cats. Since they live their life in the confines of our home it is important to both of us that we give them the most stimulating and full life humanly possible.

Back when I first started reviewing cat toys I came across a company called Petstages that has a complete line of toys for cats (and dogs). The thing that we loved about these toys is that they stimulate the cats mind, as well as their reward system that keeps them hunting and playing, all while providing exercise in a safe environment that we control.

Meowijuana: Organic Catnip Assortment Review

Meowijuana: Organic Catnip Review + Giveaway

Murfee is a unique cat in many ways, but mostly because he is hot and cold when it comes to the things he likes. In most situations this does not bother us, and honestly we have become quite accustom to it and even find humor among the chaos of his ever changing mood.

The one thing that Murfee has loved since he was a kitten and has stayed constant about is catnip. There is something about this grown plant that he loves, and most days can garner a flicker of interest.

When I recently was doing searches about growing our own catnip I came across a company called Meowijuana, I was immediately interested since I love a good play on words.

Cat Lady Box Monthly Subscription Review: January 2017

Cat Lady Box Monthly Subscription – “Cozy & Comfy” – January 2017 – Review + Giveaway

Early in our cat guardian life, we realized that our cats were going to miss out on sleeping on our beds at night. Due to the layout of our house, there is a clear path from our living room to the bedroom. If we keep the bedroom door open, they run and use our (Jason’s) legs to vault themselves ahead of each other.

Recently we have begun to let our girl cat, Maggee, in the room the last couple hours of the sleep cycle. Most days she hunkers down by my legs and falls asleep. The other day, we discovered that a soon as the humans sleep she explores the closet. We had set some water bottles on the edge of our elevated closet, and when we woke, one bottle was on the floor – not where we left it.

Sadly, Maggee was busted! Despite that exploration, we know all she wants is to be near us. When I received the “Cozy & Comfy” themed Cat Lady Box this month, I laughed because thats all every cat wants is to be cozy and comfy. Continue reading

Pet Remedy: Spray and Diffuser Review

Pet Remedy: Spray and Diffuser Review + Giveaway

There is confession that needs to be made – we have a problem cat. Our boy Murfee is a handful and a half – for more than one reason.

We adopted Murfee at 9 weeks old from the local Humane Society. We originally adopted him because the other cat in our house was rough playing with us and we read that getting them a buddy can break this behavior. From the moment we brought Murfee home he has been the opposite of a sleeper – he is awake 20+ hours a day!

We have given this thought and consideration, and we think it is a simple reason – he does not want to miss any excitement in his house. I know this sounds silly, but 4+ years later we still are left with more questions than answers.

This leaves many hours, while his sister Maggee sleeps, we look for answers. There is one  ruling criteria for products we use – no medicines or doctor prescribed remedies. Since we have heard positive things about diffusers I was eager to try Pet Remedy’s Diffuser and Spray.

Cat Lady Box Monthly Subscription – “Meowy Holidays” – December 2016 – Review + Giveaway

cat-lady-box-december-2016-contentsThe holidays are here and it is time for cats of the world to assist their humans with the present wrapping in front of them. Maggee and Murfee love to walk all over the paper and listen to the crinkle under their paws.

One of my favorite thing during this season is to watch my cats as they watch the musical Christmas lights we have. There eyes dance around each light and as I wonder what is going through their minds, I find myself relaxing with the rhythm of their purrs.

If I know anything, it that this season is as magical for humans and cats alike. When I received the “Meowy Holidays” themed Cat Lady Box, I knew that it would be seasonally appropriate and full of holiday themed items.   Continue reading

Cat Lady Box Monthly Subscription Review: October 2016

Cat Lady Box Monthly Subscription – “Black Cats” – October 2016 – Review + Giveaway

cat-lady-october-2016-contentsThe season of black cats and pumpkins – Halloween is almost here.

When I received the “Black Cat” themed Cat Lady Box , the first thing that i thought of was the upcoming Halloween holiday and the uptick in black cat adoptions.

The black cat is full of myth and lore, and it is advised to not walk in the path of a black cat or suffer 7 years of bad luck, or something to that effect. As we approach the holiday the tendency for black cats to disappear becomes less myth and lore and more reality. It is advised that black cat owners keep their cats close to home and indoors the days before and a day or two after – witches like black cats.

These boxes are consistently great each month and are “purrfectly” curated and each month is better than the last.

John Paul Pet Shampoo and Conditioning Spray Review

John Paul Pet: Pet Shampoo and Conditioning Spray Review and Giveaway

shampoo-and-spray-conditionerI have a confession – I love to brush Maggee. When we adopted her, one of our first priorities was to acclimate her to brushing. This was useless since she took to brushing like a duck to water and loved to be brushed.

A couple of months ago I noticed that she had some white flakes as we brushed her tail. Being the ever diligent cat owners we looked online. After what seemed like hours of reading we came to the conclusion that she has dry skin.

While I was researching this issue I discovered the easiest thing to do was give her a bath. When I received two bottles from John Paul Pet I knew that a feline bath was in her future. Continue reading
