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?

Mom’s purrthday was this past Caturday and besides receiving a dust-buster (which she is very excited about!), she really wanted Dad to fix the well pump. Kind of an odd birthday wish, but to each their own I guess.

Ya see, the purrressure in the house has not been keeping up as it should. So, Mom’s wish is Dad’s command. What should have taken an hour or so, took a good 24 hours to fix. The water at our house is really hard and Dad ended […]

Big Girl Bed

As we all know, my little sister isn’t getting any smaller, in fact it’s quite the opposite. Ellie is growing like a weed! She’s outgrowing some of her toys, clothes, and most recently, her bed. Dad was planning on keeping her in the crib until she turns 25 but Mom quickly vetoed that a few months back after conning Dad into converting Ellie’s crib into her (now) toddler bed.

As a result, Mom is on a scavenger hunt for the purrfect big girl bed fur Ellie. […]
