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?

The Baby of the House

Ellie is supurr into her baby dolls lately. She holds, hugs, kisses and tells them, “don’t cry. It’s ok, I’ll help you.” When she lays them down to go night night, she even says “sweet dreams”!

It’s actually quite cute how she looks after them.

I would purresume she gets these fantastic motherly qualities furrom Mom – because let’s be real. Mom has done the same thing for me since the day she brought me home, and even at 11 years old, still treats me like her […]

Hoppy (Belated) Easter

Have any of you evfurr seen the Easter Bunny?

I purrsonally haven’t and this year, I was determined to stay up and wait fur him. After waiting (somewhat impatiently) under the blankets of the couch, and with no sign of the elusive hare, I quickly came up with a new plan of action — hiding behind the doorway. I thought fur sure I’d catch him this way. After what felt like an eternity, I decided it was close enough to breakfast time and my stomach was […]

When will it be my turn?

When the TV is on at home, Mom is either catching up on her reality shows, Dad is watching UFC fights, car or nature shows, and Ellie either wants to watch Paw Patrol or purrimpresses.

Talk about purredictable!

Because I’m a cat, the laws of nature dictate that I’m obligated to sleep half the day away. What the laws of nature do not state however, is that once awake, I shouldn’t be afforded the opportunity to choose what I would like to.

Tom and Jerry fur example. Who […]

Cover Kitty

Fur obvious reasons, I’m an animal lovfurr. Which means Main Street Magazine’s March animal themed issue is my undisputed favurrite and most anticipated issue each year. I’ve submitted head shots purractically evfurry year in hopes of gracing the covfurr, and each year I have been passed over.

Allow me to present a few important reasons that necessitate my inclusion:

Mom works fur the magazine, I’m purretty good looking, and get this – my Aunt Thorunn is the publisher.

What’s the hold up ladies? I know there are plenty […]
