Paws Together for Texas: How to Help Animals Affected by Harvey

As Hurricane Harvey continues to wreak devastation on Texas, our thoughts and prayers go out to all who have been affected by this disaster. As happens all too often during a natural disaster, not all shelters allow pets. This leaves many families having to make difficult decisions. Some pets end up in shelters (hopefully temporarily until they can be reunited with their families), some are abandoned, and some are lost. Let’s not forget the animals who are in shelters in the affected areas, as well as the number of homeless animals living on the street.

Oh My Gravy! Weruva BFF OMG! is 'People Food for Cats" #weruvagrade

As much as I don’t like to admit it, I’m a picky eater. Our mom gets a little frustrated because sometimes it’s a struggle to get me to eat and my weight goes up and down. I just think she worries too much! And while I don’t eat a lot, Lexy eats too much. Sigh… what’s Mommy to do? Well, she’s not alone in her struggles. We recently learned that she is experiencing not one, but two of the most three common cat concerns; picky eating, weight gain, and urinary tract issues. 

Weruva|B.F.F. OMG!|

We’re partnering with Weruva a luxurious, natural pet food dubbed "people food for cats", which is launching a full line of gluten, grain, and carrageenan-free cat food in honor of International Cat Day and just in time for Happy Healthy Cat Month in September.

Hello, everyone. This is Lexy checking in with our #ChewyInflulencer review. After perusing the fab choices Chewy had for their influencers, I couldn’t help but choose the BLUE Wilderness Pate Variety Pack. I felt it was time for Lola and me to release our inner big cat and eat like a Lynx with this meat-rich food. I’ll give you a little bit of a spoiler here – we really wanted to ROAR after eating this!

Catnip Nation's August Report: A Long Island Feral Colony is in Danger

In June I brought you the second installment of a series of posts by Tina Traster, Producer and Director of the documentary film Catnip Nation. This month Tina tells us about a feral colony at a town dump that is in jeopardy. I'm hoping all parties involved can come to terms for the sake of the cats. How nice would it be for all cats to live safe and happy lives? I hope this feral colony is safe and is being taken care of.

Operation Twelve Tiny Paws: Kitties Need a Home!

Hello, and Happy Wednesday! Today we have a guest on our blog.  I'd like to introduce you to Otis, the leader of Twelve Tiny Paws.  Otis, Milo and Cami are desperately in need of their forever home. Our friends at PAD PAWS  have been caring for them for quite a long time now, but they really need a home. We're asking all of our friends to share their story on social media so we can get the word out about them. Lexy and I were in the street at one point in our lives, and it wasn't fun!  We count our lucky stars every day for our home and family, and our wish is for these three beautiful cats to be safe and happy.

Thanks, friends! We know we can count on you.
