How many people have heard that cloves can be used as a natural pest repellant? I personally have never tried it but a lot of people I know swear by it. Or are you decorating with cloves this holiday season? Here's a little known fact about cloves: they are harmful to cats! I found out from first-hand experience…

Since the wedding, we have purchased a house and adopted a couple of cats. My son is going into second grade. I'm currently pursuing Redken color certification and a cosmetology instructor's license. Nick left the university he used to work for and is currently working for a marketing firm. We are going into our third year as Old Marrieds, but we've been together for seven years total.
I've scoured the cat-loving internet to bring you the classiest cattiest home decor there is. Like this "Shaken Not Purred" tea towel. I mean, can a cat get classier than that? I think not. We've got shower curtain, ring holders, tins, tea pots, and paper towel holders that celebrate your love of cats, but don't make you look like a crazy cat lady. This shit is kitty cat chic, y'all…
Full of helpful advice like how to avoid falling out of bed when you've had too many drinks while watching Downton Abbey, and the note that cats are … almost people!

Recently we moved to the country and for a variety of country reasons, I didn't want our cat Atticus venturing outside (ticks, snakes, disease, wild dogs, backyard chickens, environmental damage). But as Atticus is a poos-outside cat and I like it that way, I wasn't too keen about cleaning up kitty litter for the rest of my life (sigh). Happily, one of my Facebook friends shared that their cat had done their first poo into the toilet and intrigued, I internet searched how to achieve this. And achieve it we did!
We recently moved and had to ditch the old cat tree after two years of love and abuse. It plain fell apart in the process of moving so we started the hunt for a new tree. We wanted something sturdy, affordable, and something that wouldn't take up too much room. Problem was, the cat trees you typically find on the market are made out of cheap plastic and particle or composite board. After some research, we decided to use the wallspace to the side and above our couch to create a wall mounted cat tree using a mixture of shelves and including a scratching post.
