I almost declined when I first received the pitch to review a toy called KittyWhip. It just seemed like such an awful name for a cat toy. But once I took a look at the toys, I decided to accept – and I’m so glad I did.

At first glance, these toys don’t look like much. A string on a stick – how exciting could this possibly be?Continue Reading

Guest post by Siena Lee-Tajiri

I’m writing this enveloped by the warm spices of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves coming from the pumpkin pies in the oven. It’s Thanksgiving week and by the time you read this, it will have come and gone with just traces of leftover stuffing and maybe that last slice of pie.

Mews and Nips: The Electrical Life of Louis Wain

Carol_Singing_by_Louis_William_Wain,_watercolor

If you’re looking for a movie to watch this weekend, I highly recommend The Electrical Life of Louis Wain. The movie is based on the true story of the eccentric British artist whose playful pictures transformed the public’s perception of cats forever. Set in the early 1900s, the movie follows Wain as he seeks to unlock the “electrical” mysteries of the world and, in so doing, to better understand his own life and the profound love he shared with his wife Emily Richardson. The movie is available on Amazon Prime (free for Prime members.)

We reviewed the Petlibro Automatic Capsule Fountain earlier this year.  With so many fountains available, it can be hard to decide what’s good and what’s not. The two main things I look for in a fountain are that it needs to be easy to clean and easy to operate, but I also want it to look good and be quiet. This fountain hits all these marks. And now, it comes in four fun colors!Continue Reading
