The rental that we have has vertical blinds on every window and door covering. I'm terrified of them being destroyed by our two seven-month-old kittens. Have you faced this situation, and what did you do about kitten-protecting vertical blinds?

Finally, the sad truths of the the IKEA catalog, revealed through narration: "I hate to be the one to break it to you, but own too much crap to make this work. We have set you up for failure."
So my husband and I bought a house! But one thing that I noticed in this glorious house is that right when you walk into the kitchen there is this smell. We're not sure where it's coming from, but it's definitely of the feline species. However, we don't own any cats. So here's the question: How do you remove this smell, especially when you can't pinpoint the exact location that it's coming from?

For years I've wanted a bookcase that incorporates a cat tree. I think it's really important for my cats to have a designated place to scratch that isn't the furniture and a way to be the tallest thing in the room without knocking over breakable stuff I care about. BUT I hate the look of cat trees. Hence, the cat tree bookcase.
I was wondering how on earth you move with an outdoor cat. In our current home, we leave the window open and she comes and goes as she pleases. However, we're looking to move to an apartment about four hours away. She doesn't adapt to change well (was hoping to somehow have her asleep during the drive), but I know that a lot of outdoor cats try and find their way back to their old home. We were thinking of transitioning her to an indoor cat, at least for a while, but she's never even used a litter box before. When, if ever, will it be okay to let her out again?
About five months ago the hubby and I made a big switch for our fur-babies we had been contemplating for a while: from clay to cedar litter. We have discovered many things in this switch-up, and we would love to share some pros and cons with ya! Hope this helps any of you contemplating a switch to a more natural litter option.
