Not Tested on Animals ≠ Cruelty Free - Blog the Change for Animals #BtC4A

Several years ago after I adopted Lola and Lexy and became more involved in the cat community, animal cruelty started to come to my attention. The more I learned, the more I wanted to purchase more cruelty-free products. I always thought if a product was not tested on animals it was cruelty-free, but through some research I learned that wasn't true. Read on to see what the difference is.

Bookstore Cats by Brandon Schultz - Review and Giveaway!

Two of my favorite things are cats and books. I could spend hours in a bookstore perusing the shelves and getting lost in a story. Add a cat to the mix and I’d have to get kicked out at closing time! There’s something comforting and cozy about being in a bookstore with a cat, and Brandon Shultz brings this to life in his book, Bookstore Cats

Catnip Nation's January Report - Fighting For TNR Ordinances In Rockland County, NY

In October I brought you the fourth installment of a series of posts by Tina Traster, Producer and Director of the documentary film Catnip Nation. This month Tina discusses the importance of TNR ordinances to address the feral cat issue. I could not agree more! This summer I toured Alley Cat Allies' Atlantic City Boardwalk Cat Project, which is proof that TNR works!  One of my goals for my blog this year is to write more about TNR to educate the public on this very important topic.Tell me your thoughts in the comments below. Thank you, Tina, for being a voice for feral cats, not only in Rockland County (my home town), but everywhere. It makes me proud and elated that the Village of Haverstraw, where I grew up, passed Rockland County’s first feral cat ordinance to support Trap Neuter Return (TNR). My niece went to high school with the mayor, Michael Kohut, and I went to school with his brother. (The Village of Haverstraw is small... everyone knows everyone else!) My dream is for this type of ordinance to be passed nationwide. Let's all help Tina and Catnip Nation spread the word by sharing this post. Are there TNR ordinances in your area? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.

4 Tips To Help Keep Community Cats Safe In Cold Weather

Hello, everyone.  This is Lexy checking in with another important PSA. 

It’s winter time and not only are we in a deep freeze here in the North East, as I write this we are in the midst of a blizzard. Lola and I are very lucky to have a home where we can be safe and warm inside. But not all cats are blessed like we are.  This time of year we always worry about community cats, so I thought it would be a good idea to give you some tips for their winter safety.

Make Litter Box Maintenance Easy With Tidy Cats Direct Disposable Litter Box #ChewyInfluencer

Lexy is a little disappointed (again) this month because I chose our product for our Chewy Influencer review. (She didn’t quite approve of my choice in September, either.)  I’ve read many reviews on the Tidy Cats Direct Disposable Litter Box, and have been wanting to test it out for myself for quite some time so I couldn’t resist the opportunity. (Sorry, Lexy. Maybe next month you’ll get food or a tasty treat to review.)
