Chats Noirs et Blancs

While Mischa and Sammy were enjoying a sun bath I decided to take the opportunity and snap their fabulousness in black and white.  


















They are so photogenic and very tolerant of me.

Noodle Tools

Our Binky Crunchy Noodles are a favorite toy with both our human and feline customers.  And we are thrilled because they are one of our favorite toys to make. 


Making a Noodles takes many steps however.  Besides the time consuming construction of the fabric noodle there is also the customizing of the Bamboo handle.      


We have some special tools to help with that.  Each handle is cut and detailed and then inspected for quality by Mischa... who is no easy task master. 


But once completed, the Crunchy Noodle is a super fun toy!  We have received such great compliments ......

"My cat loves this toy! He especially likes the "crunchy" sound it makes"

"Fat Charley will get a good workout with this Crunchy Noodle Toy!! he and Heloise LOVE it...I could barely get the package opened before they pounced on all their catnip goodies!! "

"My cats received this awesome toy earlier this week and they haven't stopped wanting to play with it. It's nicely made with great extension and really holds my cats' interests. Thank you so much for this fun toy!"

"Great for kitty cardio. Thank you"



Sammy and Mischa love the Noodle too.

We will be adding LOTS of Noodles as well as other toys to the shop this month.  We first have to ship an order of Noodles off to London's Lady Dinah's Cat Emporium.  Meow!

CAT COMMODITIES


Thanks to Hauspanther I found PawNosh and their "AWESOME" Cubby Bowls.


PawNosh innovative glass pet bowls are non-toxic, made from 100% post-consumer recycled glass, and are designed and manufactured here in the USA.   


Their bowls fill a critical void for a safe, sustainable and responsibly-produced alternative for our fur kids.  And not only are they safe BUT they look fabulous!  


From the packaging to the bowl itself the quality and style are purr-fect! Plus the packaging can be used for kitty to play with!  Mischa loves tissue paper and boxes after all!


As soon as we set our new lovely PawNosh bowl down Sammy and Mischa "ran" to it and tested it out!  They love to drink out of glasses but often tip them over or get frustrated when the water level is too low that they cannot reach it.  With the Cubby bowl they have plenty of head room and lets just say I will be completely surprised if they can tip it over. 

Sammy and Mischa give the Cubby bowl from PawNosh...
FOUR PAWS UP!

CAT ART - ANDY WARHOL

When someone says Andy Warhol most people think of cans of soup and a variety of other more popular works from the artist. But did you know that Andy loved cats?


Warhol’s love of cats began at an early age and was fuelled by his mother Julia’s own appreciation for thm.  During the pair’s residency at Warhol’s Carnegie Hill townhouse throughout the 1950s and 60s, they surrounded themselves with cats, all of which were named Sam except for one called Hester. 



It was during this period that Warhol self-published his book 25 Cats Name Sam and One Blue Pussy (1954), a series of ink wash cat portraits, as well as a book of Julia’s cat drawings entitled Holy Cats by Andy Warhol’s Mother.


Warhol continued to be inspired by cats, creating this cat portrait in the 1970s using his signature Pop Art style.

Sorry I have not been posting lately.... I have been so busy with a fabulous event I am working on for Feline Rescue of Northern Nevada.  Being an Event Coordinator takes up A LOT of time.  But I am so happy to be doing it!

The event I am planning is what we hope will be an annual thing for FRoNN....  Bingo Extravaganza!

A super fun night of games, prizes, food, and the company of cat people all for helping cats in need.  

If you happen to live in Reno/Tahoe/Sparks you MUST come!

COZY CATTERY ADS

I am ALWAYS playing around with possible ads and such for my shop and well, just about everything.   I should have been in advertising!  

These are a few I made up for The Cozy Cattery.  




This is a boarding resort and grooming spas JUST for cats.  It is owned by Susan, founder and director of Feline Rescue of Northern Nevada,  the rescue I volunteer at as the Event Coordinator and in which I take profile photos and videos of the cats for adoption.    

If you live in Reno/Tahoe this is the only place I would recommend for boarding your cats.  It is safe, clean, and they are such cat people that they treat your baby like they do their own.  

And we all know how traumatic bathing a cat can be... for your cat and for you!  But Susan is a certified cat groomer who has a magic touch in handling cats and making it as stress free as possible for them.
