We've been approved for adopting two rescue kittens from a local shelter. I wondered if there's anything anyone would suggest to prepare for furry arrivals? Especially anything unusual, DIY, or low-cost, as we're on a budget!

My fiance and I have moved to a new apartment with our two cats. While one of our cats seems to have taken to it nicely, quickly finding his "spots" and settling in, the younger of the two, Tony, does not seem to be doing as well. Does anyone have any advice or suggestions to helping pets relax after a move, specifically when there are large changes to the amount of people around? Has anyone else found something similar after moving their pets?Thanks in advance for your help!
Kristen took a $40 pair of Craigslist chairs that had CLEARLY seen better days and gave them a painted, glazed, and upholstered makeover that is so chic I couldn't believe it. Even MORE unbelievable — this was her first attempt at DIY re-upholstery! It's Home AND kitty approved for sure.
Omg omg, way to combine two of my favorite things: my pets and sharks! You know, one day I shall have a pet shark. But until that pet shark day comes, I can tide myself over with this this shark-shaped pet bed.
My cat Oliver and I have been negotiating his troublesome eating habits. He often gets so excited about whatever I've just fed him that if I don't sit with him and force him to take digestion breaks every 30 seconds, he just HORFs down food and then HORKs it back up again — which is especially nasty now that I've begun feeding my cats organ meets for some meals. Re-barfed ground-up cow livers. MMMM.
This is the first time in my adult life that I'm not renting my space, and it's thrilling to demolish and tinker to my heart's content. For now, this is home, and I really love it. It's cozy and frankly, bigger than our shoebox in Toronto. How about that?
I WANT to help the environment, but that alone usually does nothing to help me remember my reuseable shopping bags. Then the issue went from "Help the environment" to "Help the environment and save the cat from death by plastic."
