How I "Catified" My Small, Rented Apartment

I have always been envious of people who can create the ultimate catifed environment, complete with perches, shelves, and superhighways. I always thought Lola and Lexy could not have a catified home because I live in a rental and I'm not able to make any permanent changes. Well, I was wrong! When I was at Cat Camp NYC last year, I attended a presentation given by the fabulous Kate Benjamin of Hauspanther entitled "Catification Challenge: How to Catify When You Rent."

Kate's presentation inspired me to write a post about catifying small, rented spaces. After drafting the post, I decided to take it a step further and make changes to my own apartment to show our readers that it can be done. Read on to see how I catified my rented apartment.

Six Budget-Friendly Enrichment Ideas for Your Cat

Welcome to the third post in our new series, Enriching Your Cat’s Life. Today we are going to discuss inexpensive ideas to create an enriched environment for your cat.

Enriching your cat’s space not only makes them happy, but it can also reduce stress and eliminate behavior problems. There are some very nice products available to cat parents, many of which can be on the expensive side. You don’t have to spend a lot of money to enrich your cat’s life, though. I have some fun, easy ideas that are cheap or free!

Book Review: Heroic, Helpful and Caring Cats: Felines Who Make a Difference by Anne E. Beall

Today I am very excited to tell you about a wonderful book Heroic, Helpful and Caring Cats; Felines Who Make a Difference, that I am honored to be featured in along with Lola.

I met The author, Anne E. Beall, Ph.D., in July 2019 when I attended Meow Meet Up in Chicago. In her workshop, “How Cats Help Humans”, Anne shared her foray into the world of rescue and advocacy by telling the audience how she became a managed colony caretaker with Tree House Humane Society in Chicago through their Cats at Work program. When Anne asked attendees to share personal stories about how their cats help them and have made a difference in their lives, I knew I had to share Lola’s story with her.
