Do you love cats? Do you have a friend who love cats? You’re in luck. Because today is National Cat Day. And in honor of it, I put together a really fun list of the Top Ten Gifts for Cat Lovers. There are whimsy items, practical items, and a bag of cat-shaped pasta (that I can’t quite decide if it’s amazing or odd. I’m going with amazing). There are so many ideas on this list, you’ll want to celebrate National Cat Day all week long — or, if you do own a cat, you know that little feline is celebrated all day, every day. So you might as well celebrate its wnr with a fun gift on this list (especially if you are the owner!).

I love this Personalized Pillow Accent Throw Pillow from Personalized Creations. We actually had it made of my grandma’s cat Sox — who I affectionately call my aunt Sox, since she’s basically my grandma’s youngest child. The photo quality on the pillow is amazing — especially considering it’s a photo from my phone. The pillow comes with the case and pillow itself, which was a bit of a surprise since so many pillow covers come without a pillow.

The pillow is so funny because it’s a huge picture of Sox. I laughed when I saw it and so did Pete. I brought it to my grandma and she laughed and so did my parents. It was great, well, for everyone except Sox. She runs from it, which is funny in itself, actually. Personalized Creations has a ton of photo gifts for you to order for National Cat Day or any upcoming holidays. Be sure to check out the site here.

Purchase here.

The title of this book — I Could Pee on This: And Other Poems by Cats — is pretty gross, to be honest, but any cat owner will get it. If a cat wants to be a jerk, well, it will be a jerk. You still love him, of course, but you curse it as you’re scrubbing your carpet with cleaner and paper towels. You get the idea. You’ve been there.

Purchase here.

I’ve seen this Post-it Cat Figure Pop-up Note Dispenser a bunch of times in stores, but I never bought it — mostly because I have a novelty Post-it holder that is purse-shaped, and one is enough. If you know a cat fan, though, this is perfect for his or her office desk. Plus, none of his or her coworkers will be able to steal Post-it pads anymore either.

Purchase here.

I recently started wearing scarves, so they’re my new favorite accessory, making the Modern Minute’s Fashionable Feline Chiffon Feel Cat Scarf such a great idea for a cat lover like me. From afar, you can’t quite tell what the pattern is, but up close, oh, just so perfect.

It comes in three different colors, which, you cat lady you, probably read as “blah blah blah buy three.”

Purchase here.

For some people, their cats are their kids, so this Enesco Our Name is Mud Cat Mom Mug is perfect if you — or your friend — love cats and coffee. And if you do, well, you jusst might as well be my new BFF because we have a lot in common already.

Purchase here.

If you really love cats and you really love coffee, you really need this Cuddly Kittens Sip ‘N Go Travel Mug. Better to have all those cats in a mug than in a house. At least, I think so anyway. You might disagree — and that might be how you found this post in the first place!

Purchase here.

I don’t love fridge magnets, but I’m a big fan of magnetic poetry. There’s something so fun about rearranging it and writing hilarious things. And that makes the Magnetic Poetry Kit: The Cat Lover so appealing. I might actually have to pick it up for myself and put it in my Christmas stocking!

Purchase here.

Need a gift for me? This. Get me this Willow Tree Kindness Girl. For my birthday next month. Or Christmas. Or because you love me. Whatever the case is, buy me this. It warms my heart so much, I can’t even explain it. I just love it, and so will anyone you gift it to.

Purchase here.

I’ll be honest: I have the owl version of this JJMax Women’s Cat Socks Set and I wear them all the time. They’re just so cute, so I have high hopes that this cat set will be just as adorable! Plus, the socks are sold as a set but actually come as individual pairs. So you can buy one set and then give them out to a few of your friends. Sounds like easy stocking suffers if you ask me.

Purchase here.

And now, what you’ve been waiting for: Cat Lovers Pasta. This is what you should eat on National Cat Day, and what you should make for your cat loving friends on every birthday. Just boil, add some sauce, and your cat-centric dinner is served!

How To Keep Your Home From Smelling Like Cats #MyCatMyMuse #ad

How To Keep Your Home From Smelling Like Cats #MyCatMyMuse #ad

I remember when we adopted our cat, Totes McGotes. He let us hold him and snuggle on him so much. He was just so loving. I was holding him as he got a shot and felt his whole body shake in my arms. And that was it. We decided he was ours and brought this sweet furball home to be loved.

He didn’t stay that quiet kitten for very long. He’s not the kind of cat that snuggles (it was like false advertisement!). He just loves to play. Seriously, he used to play catch, loves to play hide and seek, and don’t even get him started with that light-up mouse. Our apartment is filled with cat toys all over and, sadly to say, the air was sometimes filled with cat smells. Disgusting, I know. There wasn’t much worse  than sitting at my work desk, right outside the bathroom where Totes’ litter box is, and having his scent travel into my nose.

Gross, just gross. But I figured that’s how it was with a cat in an apartment. I figured it would go away when we bought a house. My mom was here in September, though, and told me she had a way to rid our apartment of cat smells. I’m old enough to know you should always listen to your mother, but I was still skeptical of her idea. Turns out … you should always listen to your mother. Our apartment hasn’t smelled like a cat in weeks. If you want your apartment to smell cat-free, listen to your (well, my) mother.

How To Keep Your Home From Smelling Like Cats

purina-muse-7
What You’ll Need:

  • Plastic shopping bag
  • Reclosable storage bag
  • Garbage pail (we use a 9-inch high pail)
  • Cat litter (you can use any brand, but I prefer clumping. So does Totes)
  • A litter scoop

What You’ll Do:

Put the plastic grocery bag in the garbage pail. Put a reclosable storage bag in the plastic shopping bag. Set it behind your litter box.

Then, sit in your bathroom and wait for your cat to come in and use the litter box. 

Or don’t, honestly, because that’s weird. Instead, take a walk, watch TV, or serve dinner to your cat.

I actually went to PetSmart (hence the plastic bag) to pick up Muse by Purina wet food for Totes. He has been eating Purina wet food in recent months and just loves it. Muse is sold exclusively at PetSmart. With Muse you don’t have to choose between natural nutrition and food that tastes great. Your cat can have both when you choose Muse.

I walked in the store and was really excited to see a Buy 2 Get 2 free coupon right as I entered. The coupon says you are able to use one per item specified (which means one coupon for every four you purchase) and four like coupons per household per day (meaning you can buy eight and get eight free).

Some stores may be out of coupons, though, so before you go to PetSmart, be sure to head over to this link and print a Buy 3 Get 3 free coupon.

Finding these in the store was super easy. They were located at the end of an aisle — and there were a ton to choose from. Actually, there are 30 recipes, including 24 grain-free varieties. Choosing to feed Totes Muse was an easy decision; the hard part was deciding on which he’d like best. Really, though, you can’t go wrong. All recipes made with real fish or poultry. There are no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives. Muse is100% complete and balanced for adult cats. Thank goodness for the coupon, so I was able to really mix and match. These come Wet recipes are available in Chowder, in Broth, with Toppers, in Gravy and Paté. I picked up a variety of them, including one that was turkey and spinach. I figured that I would hold it for Totes’ Thanksgiving dinner. 

I brought these home and Totes went nuts. He knows exactly what his food looks like and where it’s stored in the kitchen. So when I walked to the counter to set these out for a photo, he ran up to me and started meowing … and almost pantsed me. Yes, you read that right. When he knows he’s getting wet food, he will stand up and reach up as high as he can to get your attention. And that often ends up with him grabbing my booty with his paws. Sometimes, he will grab so tight and then start going back down and takes our pants with him. He’s done it to both me and Pete.

I set this food out and let him choose. He loves tuna, so it was no shock (to me at least) that he actually picked one of the natural tuna recipes. Once he picked, he was ready to eat it. If you look closely at the photo, Totes is blurry because he is in motion. He is standing on his back legs with his front paws pushing into my thighs — and he is rubbing his head on the package because he is ready to chow down.

When I got it in a bowl, he dove right in and didn’t look up until he licked his plate clean. Muse actually says, “Natural has never been so delicious. Put Muse to the test with our clean plate guarantee.”

Totes has cleared his plate every time, even with the Natural Mackerel Recipe. I was surprised, actually, because that one had a shrimp topper. A full shrimp right on top of the rest of the food. Totes had never seen a shrimp before but he’s more of an adventurous eater than me because he gobbled that one right up.

And, getting back to it … he did, eventually, use the litter box. So, back to keeping your home smell-free.

Once your cat uses the bathroom, open the reclosable storage bag and put the clumps inside it.

Then, close the bag. Every time you clean the box, just open the bag, put the clumps in, then close the bag again. All the smells will be contained in the bag and will stay out of your home. And yes, this actually works. I was so skeptical at first because I was just getting used to Totes’ smells being in our apartment. But ever since then, they have been completely eliminated. It’s amazing, really, because this is just so simple — and you probably have everything you need in your home right now.

When the storage bag is full, just tie the handles of the shopping bag and throw it out. Then, start again.

This usually lasts about six to seven days before I take it out to the dumpster. Before this, I was just tossing the clumps in an open plastic bag and would be taking it our every other day because the smell was just, well, smelly. So this not only eliminates smells, it reduces the number of plastic bags we throw out so I feel better about that.

Which of the Muse variants do you think your cat would call purr-fect?

Litter Genie Review (& Target Deal) #CatParents #Pmedia #ad

Litter Genie Review (& Target Deal) #CatParents #Pmedia #ad

“This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group®, Litter Genie® and Fancy Feast®, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #Catparents http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

litter-genie-3

Pete and I made a deal, once upon a time. We decided that for every cat I got, he could get a dog. Since he was allergic to cats and I didn’t like dogs, it seemed like we would be at a standstill for the rest of our lives. And then, after a year of living together, Pete caved and said I should get a kitten. I can’t even explain how excited I was.

But see that word there? I was getting a kitten. And that meant Totes McGotes is my responsibility: I’m the one making sure he has enough food, I’m the one checking his water bowl to make sure he has something to drink, and I’m the one cleaning his litter box. That last part, trust me, it’s the least rewarding of the bunch.

If anyone has a cat, you know taking care of the litter box is not fun. You scoop, throw the excitements in a garbage bag … and dispose of it often because after a day or two, the smell of ammonia is just overwhelming. We live in a nice size apartment, but the smell still fills the entire apartment. So when I heard about Litter Genie and the concept that it could mask these smells, I was excited to try it out.

litter-genie-5

My mom was in town when I picked it up from Target. Why Target? Because they have a deal going on through April 11, while supplies last. When you buy any TWO (2) Fancy Feast® – 24 pack OR Litter Genie® Pail/Refill, you’ll get a free Cat Toy or Friskies party mix cat treat. (We actually posted that deal last week on Instagram here, in case that photo above looks familiar).

Before going to the store, I knew we would be picking up a box of food and the Litter Genie. Totes absolutely loves Fancy Feast food and anything with tuna in it. He inhales it. When we got to the store, we stopped by the food first.

litter-genie-4

I was excited to see the Fancy Feast Seafood Feast Variety pack (it’s the one all the way on the right). It was clearly marked in the store, so I knew it was on sale and I knew it was part of the deal. I love when stores are actually helpful and label things in such an obvious way. It takes all the guessing out of it and I can go to the register confidently (not worried and hoping that the deal will work).

We picked up the box of food, the Litter Genie, and a mouse-shaped laser pointer.

litter-genie-1

When we got home, Totes was so curious about what we brought home. He just kept staring at the items. We took out the laser pointer (our free toy) to play with him and he absolutely loved it. It was such a good choice. If you’re heading to Target, I would recommend that as your freebie … unless you want to get work done. Did you see my photo on Instagram of Totes hunting the red dot? He wants to play. All. Day. Long. It’s fine, really, because we just have such a good time playing. Plus, I work 14 hours a day, so it’s a nice break for me to take a little time out to play with Totes. I get a break and he gets exercise, so we both win.

But with the Litter Genie? Pete and I are the clear winners here.

So, let’s talk about it.

litter-genie-2

My mom had one before, so she helped me set it up. The pail comes with a refill pack and a scoop. (Follow along with the photos clockwise to correspond with the set up steps that follow:) You take out the refill pack and pull out the plastic (the longer the “bag” you create, the longer you can use it). Tie a knot at the bottom to create a bag. Put the refill back in the pail. Then, open the base and feed the bag through. Close the lid. So basically, you have created a garbage bag in the bottom of the pail that is closed off from the top. After your cat goes to the bathroom, you open the lid and deposit what’s in your scoop. You pull the black “drawer” (in the middle) and the “deposit” falls into the bag portion. The “drawer” slides back, keeping the smells and the deposit down below. When the bag is full, cut it, tie it, and start over.

I’ll be honest: I was really skeptical about this. Could it really work? Was it worth the effort? Did I really want to accumulate Totes’ “deposits” for weeks on end? I mean, after sitting in a trash can for two days the apartment smelled. Could we really go two weeks?

I’m actually shocked. We’ve been using the same bag for almost three weeks. It’s not filled yet … and the apartment doesn’t smell at all. You’d really have no idea that there’s a bunch of droppings just accumulating there. Plus, it’s so easy to just scoop, dump, and be done with it.

We have a really cheap (and honestly, pretty terrible) litter right now. It’s the first time we’re using a non-clumping litter, which doesn’t clump the cat urine. It just gets absorbed into the litter. I do have to change the litter in the actual box more often, which is a pain. I bring this up because it means that there’s no cat urine in the Litter Genie right now. It’s been almost three weeks and I haven’t had to change the bag yet, but I’m sure this would change drastically if we were using a clumping litter (and, as a result, the bag was being filled with urine as well).

What I really like, though, is that the Litter Genie hides all of our cat’s excrement. Before this, we were scooping and dumping it into a garbage that sat on the side of the toilet in our guest bathroom. So any time we had guests who used that bathroom (or we used it), you’d be doing your business next to a trash can filled with cat excrement. That’s kinda gross. Now, that trash can is used solely for empty toilet paper rolls and the Litter Genie is used for Totes’ litter.

This skeptic is converted.

The big complaint my mom had, though, was that the refills are pricey. At Target, the Litter Genie pail is $14.99 and a two-pack of refills is the same price. If you head to the Littler Genie website, you can print a coupon for $5 off the Litter Genie. I’m going to keep checking the site to see if there are coupons for the refills because I will definitely keep using this.

Totes … well, I would ask his opinion but he’s too busy stuffing his face into some Fancy Feast. So I’ll ask you: Have you tried this? What did you think?

Holiday Gift Guide: ONEHOPE Wines Pinot For Paws Gift Box

Holiday Gift Guide: ONEHOPE Wines Pinot For Paws Gift Box

Drugstore Divas received these items for this review. All thoughts and opinions belong to Drugstore Divas. 

one hope-1We were out at a brewery today when Pete got a text from his friend with the photo of a kitten they’re getting. “He’s so cute,” I said to Pete. “Ask how old he is.” Pete asked and the answer was four months. “That’s how old Totes was when we adopted him,” I said.

When we got Totes, we were told he was four months old, although I texted his photo to two of my cat loving friends who told me he looked about a year old. When we saw a photo of this new four-month-old kitten, he just looked so small — especially compared to now 15 month old Totes.

So in the middle of the brewery, I took out my phone to look at photos of Totes’ first day with us. And I was oohing and aahing over how adorable and small he was. And of course, I had to show Pete the pictures of Totes chewing on his hair, and climbing in boxes, and just being a cute little curious baby cat.

one hope-2

As I’m writing this, Pete is playing with our cat. And a few minutes before that, I turned to Totes and told him he’s a good cat and such a great addition to our lives.

In case you haven’t been around to hear the story, I’m going to post it again. It’s one of my favorite stories to tell.

Last Christmas, on our half day drive back to North Carolina from New York, I lost it. I cried worse than a kid of her first day of preschool.

See, my entire family is in New York and the only person I really knew and saw on a regular basis was the UPS guy. And then his route got changed. And since I work at home 14 hours a day, it’s hard for me to meet new people unless they come to my door on the regular.

I was lonely and sad and homesick and spending two great weeks at home with my parents and my grandma and my brothers and my friends, it made for a really difficult car ride home.

Between my sobs, Pete said, “Let’s get your kitten.”

one hope-5“Really?” I said.

See, I wanted a kitten so badly, but Pete is allergic. And he’s a dog person. But he was serious. He knew a kitten would make me happy and would give me some company too. So the weekend after we got back, we went out and adopted our kitten, Totes McGotes, and my life was forever changed. I absolutely love my kitten and can’t imagine our lives without him. I also have a huge spot in my heart for pet adoptions now.

See, before we adopted Totes, he was not happy. He was a stray and then in foster care. His foster mom told us how he was so docile and his brother (who had been adopted) was the wild one. Why would someone prefer the wild one? He was prettier. Totes, he’s a black cat and, unfortunately, black cats are half as likely to get adopted as gray cats (according to a Huffington Post infographic). According to this SFGate article, black cats can sit in shelters for months and are far more likely to be euthanized.

It breaks my heart. But, I understand. When we found out Totes (named, non-creatively, Mr. Blacky, at the time) was the only kitten left, I wasn’t sure that I wanted him. I wanted a cute kitten and one that was a little younger. But he left Pete pick him up and walk around with him on his shoulder for just under an hour. I held him while he got a booster shot and could feel his heart racing, but he was too scared to flinch. He was it. He was ours.

one hope-3

If you support pet adoptions, you’ll love ONEHOPE wines. Half of profits from ONEHOPE California Pinot Noir sales are donated to help pets find their forever home. That’s amazing because, according to the ONEHOPE website: “Approximately 5 million to 7 million homeless pets enter animal shelters nationwide each year.” That’s a lot of pets in need of love.

And heck, if you love wine, you can help the animals. Or the children. Half of our profits from the purchase of the ONEHOPE California Brut Sparkling Wine are donated to end childhood hunger in America. There are a bunch of causes that ONEHOPE supports: Global Disease, here. You can actually find these wines in your local stores (I’ve seen them in Lowes Foods and Harris Teeter), but if you want to make it more of a gift, check out ONEHOPE’s gift boxes. We got the Pinot for Paws Meow Gift Box. It came with 1 bottle ONEHOPE California Pinot Noir, Eco Stacks, Cork Bamboleos, Taffy Roll, Felt Roller, and a 4oz Tin of ONEHOPE Catnip.

one hope-4

Totes is obsessed with the Cork Bomboleo. Absolutely obsessed. As soon as I opened the box, he dove for it, picked it up in his mouth, and played with it for the longest. I tried to take it back to stage a photo and he came right over, grabbed it in his mouth, and basically said, “Ha ha mom, it’s mine.” I had to wait until he was completely tired out to stage a photo — and even then he came right over and stole the Cork Bomboleo. I later found out that it’s filled with organic cat nip and that’s why he loved it so much.

But maybe you don’t have a cat. Maybe you have a dog. No worries. Just check out the Pinot for Paws WOOF Gift Box. It comes with 1 bottle ONEHOPE California Pinot Noir (the same as the cat box), Cotton Rope Tug & Toss Toy, Fetch Canvas Bone Dog Toy, Tennis Ball, and Dog Treats. Plus, this box also helps to support pet adoptions.

And, speaking of the wine, it was good. “It was sweet and wine-y and it was good,” according to Pete. It’s the first time we’ve had a red from ONEHOPE (we were at an event that served a white ONEHOPE wine, which was where I first heard about the brand).

Which would you prefer?

But he left Pete pick him up and walk around with him on his shoulder for just under an hour. I held him while he got a booster shot and could feel his heart racing, but he was too scared to flinch. He was it. He was ours.

We brought him home and after a couple days, he became super comfortable with us and started running around like a crazy cat. He tore the biggest hole in my favorite pair of sweats from being wild and jumping on — and quickly off — my lap. Every once in a while, when it’s 3am and he is running marathons around the apartment, I’ll ask him where the calm little kitten went.

fancy feast 3

Adopting Totes was one of the best decisions we’ve ever made, and I absolutely encourage anyone who has the room and ability to do the same. Fancy Feast agrees. If you head over to Feastivities.com, you’ll be able to purcahse a white, porcelain cat-shaped ornament for $2. The entire cost of the ornament goes directly to Adopt-A-Pet, so 100% of each and every purchase goes to North America’s largest non-profit pet adoption charity. The charity helps thousands of shelter and rescue animals find homes. The ornament comes with a leather hanging strap and is has FF ’14 written on it. It’s actually the perfect ornament for Totes. Not only is the year we brought him into our lives written on it, Fancy Feasts Broths are his new favorite treat. I got a tuna variety as a sample (which I posted about on Drugstore Divas when it was available, so you may have gotten it too), and Totes inhaled it. I put it in a bowl for him and he didn’t look up until it was finished. When Fancy Feast sent the ornament for review, Totes pulled on the strap and tried to play with it — until he noticed the Fancy Feast Broths. He started meowing and jumping at me, then walked me over to his bowl to serve him.

He’s lucky I love him.
