Thanksgiving is a favorite holiday for many of us, but cats, unless they’re super gregarious and social, probably aren’t too crazy about all the activity that surrounds friends and family gathering for the festivities.

We’re big fans of Mario Arbore and the amazing cat furniture he builds under his company name Square Paws. So it’s not surprise that Mario stepped up to the challenge when he was asked to create two very special cat rooms for Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center at North Shore Animal League America in Port Washington, New York. The new cat adoption center project was spearheaded by Beth and Howard Stern, who asked Mario to create two cat rooms in honor of Billy Joel, as a thank you for his support of the new facility. The results are stunning! Please read “Two Odes to Billy Joel” for details and gorgeous photos of the two rooms.

I prefer to wear nightshirts made from 100% cotton, and I like them plain, without any buttons, lace or other fussy decorations. Unfortunately, these types of sleepshirts are getting increasingly hard to find, which is why I was thrilled when I discovered these shirts on Amazon. Not only do they match all my requirements, they come in five different cat patterns and at a great price.Continue Reading
