WE WOULD LIKE YOU TO MEET OTIS JOE, A CAT LIKE NO OTHER

OTIS JOE & ASHLEY JO

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?

[All cat puns are not my intellectual property and are the sole responsibility of my mother who refuses to let twenty four hours go by without using one. -Otis Joe]

Woodchucks

Hi furriends! How has your week been? I’ve been supurr busy practicing my woodchuck hunting skills. We’ve had woodchucks at our house befurr, but we seem to have an entire village living under our deck recently. Purrhaps that’s a little dramatic – we only have three. But that’s three more than Dad purrfurrs to have living under the deck. He’s been successful in catching one with the Havahart trap but the other two are taunting Dad. Evfurry time they are close to the trap, Dad […]

Happy Anniversary

July 6th is a very special date in our household (in case you couldn’t already tell by Mom’s license plate). Can you believe Mom and Dad became official sixteen years ago today? To put it into purrspective, that’s literally half of Mom’s lifetime – making them true high school sweethearts. And nine years ago today, they tied the knot, vowing to love each other fur all eternity. Unfurrtunately, cats weren’t allowed to their furry-tail wedding, but Mom’s pawsome photoshop skills indicate otherwise.

Mom and Dad are a purrfect […]

When The Family’s Away…

Mom, Dad, and Ellie just took a trip to Iceland; purrimarly to visit family. Surpurrise surpurrise, they left me home alone fur an entire week with the exception of a daily visit furrom Nana around suppurr time.

I’m usually on my very best behavior when I’m home alone. I try to be mindful of the amount of fur I leave behind. I know how hard Mom works to keep the house spotless. On the occasion I see a bug in the house, I’m always polite and nevfurr kill it. […]

Becoming A Purrfessional

This might come as surpurrise to some of you; but I feel like it’s time to finally come clean and tell the truth now that we’re 146 posts in. I’m not really a writer, nor do claim to be or think this would be the purrfect purrofession fur me. In between catnaps recently, I’ve been giving it a lot of thought as to what I want to be when I grow up. Depending on how you look at it, I’m going to be 13 in […]
