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?

Health Update

Nothing about my vet appointment on Monday was pleasant.

I was awoken furrom my afternoon cat nap and forced into that god-awful carrier, my mortal enemy. Your neighborhood feline fought tooth and nail with mother but needless to say, my efforts purroved futile. My only chance for reprisal came during the car ride where I made sure to cry extra loud and hard to make Mom feel even worse fur me. I think it worked because she kept telling me we were almost there […]

An Amazon Order Fur Me?

So without any further ah-do, fur the furrst time evfurr, a Furrsday post.

Like we do evfurry night, Mom and I snuggled up on the couch while catching up on our favfurrite shows. Especially since I learned about my upcoming appointment with the vet, I’ve needed the extra snuggles to calm my nerves. Last night I couldn’t help but notice Mom “Amazoning” on her phone. Because of […]

Getting Creative with Family Time

It’s been supurr nice out lately. That means the windows have been wide open and window-sitting season is officially in full swing!

It’s a bittersweet feeling fur me. Don’t get me wrong – with everyone outside enjoying the weather, I have a bit more time to myself while not having to catnap with one eye open wondering what toy Ellie will try to show me next, Mom swooping in with another forehead kiss, or Dad asking me to move furrom his favurrite spot on […]

Don’t Look At My Teefers!

Mom came charging through the front door yesterday furrom work, and instead of greeting me with an annoying kiss pur usual, she started prying my mouth open.

“Fridrik, his gums look a little red,” she said nervously. “I’ll call the vet.” Talk about waking up to a real life nightmare.

Next thing I know, Mom is making a dental appointment fur me because she thinks I might have gingivitis. Thanks Google. Because of Mom’s research, I now have to go to the vet again […]
