Redefining How You Groom Your Cat: HandsOn™ Glove

It's shedding season again and everyone who lives with a furry companion knows what this means...

In our home, this time of the year usually means "cotton ball fields" in our hallway because we shed so much. We're Silver Shaded Persian Cats and we shed moderately year-round, but we "blow" our coat twice a year. This means we shed our entire coat practically all at once, which leaves more hair than humans believed was possible.

Attending the CWA Conference with a Cat

Mom Paula recently attended the Cat Writers' Association 25th Anniversary Conference and Awards Banquet in St. Louis, MO. She will share more about the conference in another post. We were not able to attend (our Cuddle Clones selves did), but we wanted to let you know about some special cats who were able to attend the conference with their humans.

Three attendees who brought their cats with them to the conference agreed to share their experiences: Janiss Garza with Therapy Cat Summer (sparklecat.com featuring Summer), Jeanne Kudich with Chanel (Random Felines), and Arden Moore with Pet Safety Cat Casey (Arden Moore). Each person was asked to talk about the benefits and the challenges of bringing their feline companions to a conference.

Airline Travel with a Cat

Traveling with a pet can be very rewarding, especially when you need to be out of town for several days for a meeting or a conference. We've talked about traveling with your cat in a vehicle, but what about airline travel?

We recently interviewed Janiss Garza, an award winning author and cat blogger about traveling with her cat, Summer, aboard an airplane. Janiss and Summer recently attended the Cat Writers' Conference (CWA) 25th Anniversary Conference and Awards Banquet in St. Louis, MO where she was the recipient of the Sleepypod Traveler Award for a post - FiveThings They Don’t Tell You About Flying with Your Cat

Mother's Day

Today is Mother's Day! It's a wonderful day to show everyone how much you love and appreciate your moms. We thought we'd share photos of our beautiful kitty moms - Chloe and Mikayla.

NOW FRESH® - Sounds Good; Tastes Good

We know several people in the cat (and dog) world who prepare fresh food for their feline companions. Some people feed raw and some people prepare meals from scratch. I rarely cook for myself, much less for my cats. However, that doesn't mean I don't want to give my girls the freshest and healthiest food I can find that they will eat.

We shared information about Petcurean new line of cat food stews during our Catmas Wishes holiday series. We were impressed with the NOW FRESH® line of food from Petcurean, so Mom Paula made sure she met up with representatives from Petcurean when she attended Global Pet Expo in March.

Star Wars Caturday Art

Today is Star Wars Day! Mom Paula remembers standing in line back in the 1970s to watch the very first Star Wars movie and she has seen every movie and plans to see the last one this December. We decided to create a Caturday Art photo that included both Truffle and Luke Skywalker.

Truffle 2019

We know this day was designed for that delicious chocolate confectionery, which is where Truffle got her name because she is as sweet as her dessert namesake.
