Mews and Nips: Cat-Shaped Marshmallows Make Holiday Drinks Even Better


I don’t usually include product news in our Saturday update, but when I came across these cat-shaped marshmallows, I just had to share them with you. Created by Japanese confectioner Yawahada, these adorable treats float to the top of your cup, and they’re so totally cute, you’re going to want them in everything you drink from now on, not just hot chocolate!  (Source:

If you missed any of the stories featured on The Conscious Cat this week, here’s a recap: on Monday, we gave you advice on how to get your cat to lose weight, on Tuesday, we told you about an innovative new product that will save your carpets from being destroyed by kitty claws, on Wednesday, we featured a guest post by mystery author Lucy Burdette about why cats belong in cozy mysteries, and on Friday, we introduced you to a new high tech product that turns your cat’s litter box into a smart health monitor. And don’t forget to enter our two giveaways: one for a Feather Whirl™ toy from SmartyKat, and one for an autographed copy of Death With All the Trimmings by Lucy Burdette (see our review on Friday.)

Today’s video of a little girl receiving a kitten for her birthday is guaranteed to melt your heart, and I dare you to not tear up a little while you’re watching.

Have a great weekend!
