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?

POTIS Weighs in on Supurr Tuesday

I really don’t see what is so Supurr about this Tuesday in purrticular. As you can see from my latest photo, I’m more than a little strung out when it comes to this particular election season. Quite frankly, at this moment in time, the only delegates I care about winning over are those in charge of Fancy Feast and cold turkey slices. 

Speaking as your Purrmander and Chief, I propose a prolonged cat-nap at the conclusion of this seemingly endless cycle of […]

A Paw in Meowaige 

My mom hasn’t missed an episode of The Bachelor since the show’s inception. Like the good fur child that I am, I usually stick around evfurrry Monday night to watch the women get cattier and cattier – sorry ladies I call it like I see it. Clearly this season Peter seems to enjoy getting a little too close for my comfort. Excuse me while I cough up a hairball – that’s just gross, Peter! You’re supposed to use your tongue to groom your […]

In celebration of the national holiday where you humans honor those sharply dressed individuals you call ‘President’, I took time out of my busy schedule to consider what I might do for my fellow feline citizens were I elected Purresident of this great nation. As POTIS,  I would lead this country into a new era of feline friendliness based on several key platforms:

  • Increased vacation time for cats in need of napping
  • A law requiring vets to make house calls – no more nightmare rides […]

Valentine’s Day

I can feel love in the air (or maybe it’s just my dander); Valentine’s Day is coming this Furrriday. Being a single feline myself, a bachelor if you will, I understand how important it can be to feel loved – even in the smallest ways. A new mousey toy to swat around, a little scratch behind the ears, even cleaning my eye-boogers on occasion, all of these little acts of kindness add up to one big house love. Of course, it is my mother who […]
