Our director of advertising Ashley Kristjansson is a self proclaimed crazy cat lady … with only one cat. Luckily for Ashley, and now the entire world, that one feline is a world class nap taker, the gold standard of grumpiness, and God’s gift to Instagram. Everyday, tens of hundreds of people are inspired by the one and only Otis Joe to cuddle, mooch, and snack on turkey deli meat to their heart’s content. Otis is a soon to be ten year old house kitty, his lineage is unknown-like most comic book heroes-but mom Ashley believes he is part Turkish Van, perhaps explaining his love for the aforementioned sandwich meat. “I love him as though he were my furrrst born, I am his familiar if you will, unfortunately, my husband is his favorite person-reluctantly I might add-but I will continue to fight for his undying love and attention.” His life has been full of ups and downs, from his early experiences with the outside world to the comfort of his cat stroller, as well as his long battle with “cat acne” Otis has etched his name into the annuals of cat history. Now, for the first time ever, the legendarily lazy feline will allow our cameras into his everyday life. Main Street Magazine and its readers have been granted one of a kind access to the King of Catnaps and all of his furbaby adventures, won’t you join us? What do you say Otis?

Ma! Where’s the Turkey?!

Like most humans during this time of year, my purrents are trying, for some reason, to resist temptation when it comes to food consumption. Apparently, for the entire month of January, the humans who work with my mother are focusing on health and wellness. Sounds harmless, right?

Wrong my furriends.

Recently, I have begun to notice a strange decline in the number of treats I receive on a daily basis – I didn’t think too much of this until the unthinkable happened!

During my usual browsing of the […]

Off to a Good Start

I must say 2021 is off to a purretty good start aside furrom not feeling my oats on Saturday night — I think I rang in the New Year with a little too much wet food.

Mom has “de-Christmased” the house and cleaned furrom top to bottom. Meanwhile, Ellie has been busy playing with all of the new toys she acquired ovfurr the pawlidays. Lately she’s been obsessed with all of her princesses!

I’ve been indulging in a little extra playtime myself. I absolutely LOVE my new […]

I hope Santa Paws was good to you all!

Thank you fur evfurrything Santy-Paws. You’re too kind!

Dear Santy Paws

I understand this letter to you may be arriving at the last minute, but I’ve been purretty busy holding down the Christmas tree skirt here at home — among other festive activities. My catnip toys have all disappeared and although Mom cleans like a crazy lady, she has yet to retrieve them furrom under the couch. Therefore, at the top of my Christmas wish list, is a new catnip toy and possibly a little wet-food treat as well.

Hopefully I’ve made the nice list this year […]
