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 Review: December 2016

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

Purr Packs Monthly Subscription Box – September 2016

Purr Packs Monthly Subscription Box – “Septempurr” – September 2016 – Review

septempurr-purr-packs-box-contentsWe are the proud humans to two cats, both of them adopted as kittens from the local shelter. Murfee was first and he started his life with us at a mere 9 weeks old. He was the runt of the litter, found in an open field when he was a couple of days old with no mom or siblings in the area. How he got there and how he survived, as well as found is a mystery to us. Maggee entered our lives when she was a 9 months old, after she had been shuttled from home to home while pregnant.

Our two have been raised together and despite our best efforts are not the “bff’s” we had hoped, although this is not to say they don’t get along, it is just obvious they are not best friends. They are different, and each one has their own likes, own food loves (Murfee loves dairy based treats and Maggee loves everything else!)

There is one time a month that they put aside their differences and join together as the friends we had always hoped – when they get a box curated to them! When I recently got a Purr Packs Monthly Subscription Box these differences were put aside.

Cat Lady Box Monthly Subscription Review: September 2016

Cat Lady Box Monthly Subscription – “Fall Back” – September 2016 – Review and Giveaway

september-fall-back-boxBe careful and don’t blink or you may miss it – fall has arrived!

With the arrival of fall also comes with cooler days, cooler nights and time changes. The time change has always been something that I do not adjust well to. Twice a year we are either “springing” forward or “falling” back. When I was young I would use this as excuse to why I was either running late or early, depending on the desired responses.

Now that I am older and clocks tend to adjust on their own my excuses are less and less valid. Despite my mixed feelings, fall has arrived and when I received the September Cat Lady Box and saw the theme of “Fall Back” those memories returned. Consistently each month is “purrfectly” curated and each month is better than the last.

Cat Lady Box Monthly Subscription Review: August 2016

Cat Lady Box Monthly Subscription – “Glamour Puss” – August 2016 – Review and Giveaway

Cat Lady Box AugustWhen I think of glamour, I think old Hollywood, and at times the glitz and ritz. There are times when I look at my cats I am reminded that glamour is not only external but an internal quality as well.

For a person or cat to have a glamour about them can go much further than skin (or fur) deep. Glamour is in the way a person or animal carries themselves, or how they react in an otherwise stressful moment. Glamour is a response to those we do not know, and despite understanding them, we respect them.

The definition of glamour that I live by applies to cat or humans and when I saw this months Cat Lady Box theme celebrates glamour with the wonderful theme of “Glamour Puss”. Each month is “purrfectly” curated and each month is better than the last. Click here to see previous reviews.

Cat Lady Box Monthly Subscription Review: July 2016

Cat Lady Box Monthly Subscription – “Another Day in Purradise” – July 2016 – Review and Giveaway

Cat Lady Box July 2016Many people are under the belief that I live in paradise, or at least what could be considered paradise – San Diego, California.

I feel differently, I think that the real paradise is in a world with cats and all they can teach us. Cats teach us the art of relaxation and not caring about the world outside their worlds. Cats teach us that kindness is rewarded and anger is met with swats and growls. Cats are able to brush off grudges, and live in peace with most other cats. Cats do not care about fur colors, or if a cat came from a shelter or not, they care about the here and now.

When you take in the cat perspective it is easy to see their idea of paradise is a little more basic than ours. When I discovered that this months Cat Lady Box theme celebrates your own idea of paradise or as the cats call it “Another Day in Purradise”. Each month is “purrfectly” curated and each month is better than the last. Click here to see previous reviews.
