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?

Remembering the doggies, too!

Memorial Day is a day to celebrate all of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service of our country and we collectively honor their memory.

After all – this is the land of the furree because of the brave.

Now, fur obvious reasons, I’m not a dog lover, but I think it’s important to recognize all the dogs who have served too.

I don’t know how they did it?!

Dogs have a very long history in combat of course. They were used in the American Civil War […]

You guys – it’s time furr some real talk. My mom is crazy – and not just cat lady crazy!

This whole pandemic has caused salons to be closed furr too long. My mom has been complaining she needs a haircut. I think she looks fine. And besides – her hair is almost always pulled back so it’s not like anyone would even notice if she got her hair cut anyway.

She’s always putting little bows in my little sister’s hair and lately, these small boxes furrom […]

Mother’s Day Purresent

I’ve always known I was adopted. It’s quite obvious just in our appurrance.

My pet-parents have two legs — I have four. They speak English — I speak Cat. They have skin — I have fur. They don’t take catnaps — I do. They want something sweet furr snack time — I prefurr paw-ty mix. They say knee-slapper — I say paw-slapper.

The list could go on…but I think you get the gist.

Often times, I find myself in deep thought about what my cat family is up […]

This week’s post is inspired by Main Street Magazine’s May issue. The fine folks at MSM dedicated this purrticular issue to transportation.

Fun right? Well…

Not many of you may know this about cha’ boy but back in the day, when I was a kitten, I longed to see the great outdoors. And staring out the window just wasn’t cutting the mustard.

I cried and cried at the door – so my mom decided to tap into my turkey fund and bought me a stroller.

What’s wrong with that? […]
