Time to spoil the cats with some homemade goodies! These Chewy Cat Treats from Joy the Baker are the perfect way to show your love (and undisputed kitchen prowess). The recipe is flexible enough that you can adjust it to suit any dietary requirements or finicky feline eaters. It's always nice to know exactly what goes into the food your pets are eating, and making your own treats is one way to do so. A fun project for a Saturday afternoon that your cat will thank you for!
This is a DIY project for those crafters out there who aren`t afraid to go searching for the perfect item in a vintage store. If your cats are anything like ours, they absolutely love siting on or in suitcases. Maybe it is the knowledge that their companions might be leaving them soon, but as soon as the suitcase is pulled out, it becomes the hottest spot in the house.
This Chic on the Cheap Pet Bed from Brooklyn Limestone is a stylish project that will satisfy your cat`s ongoing desire to sit in a box. We found it a little sad (funny) that the blogger`s cat didn`t want to use the gorgeous, reversible pillow she spent a significant amount of time crafting. Classic cats. Still, the suitcase bed itself was a home run and would be a chic addition to any home.
This adorable cat nail art is surprisingly easy to pull off, and you can customize the colors to match your own cat! So cute.
First, gather your supplies.
You will need:
A base coat color
Two nail art polishes with long thin brushes (like the ones used nail salons, which can be purchased at most drug stores). We've used black and green here.
Now that you are ready to go, it's masterpiece time.
Paint your nails a base color and let dry completely
Take your black nail art pen and draw a straight line across the tip of your fingernail, creating enough space for eyes, and fill in the space on the tip of your nail. This will be the face of your cat.
Draw two triangles on the top of the line you drew, creating cat ears. Allow the black polish to dry fully.
- With the green pen draw two small ovals in the head, and then, after a bit of drying time finish them off with a small slit of black down the middle of the eyeball.
Your gorgeous cat nails are now ready to share with the world (or at least your Instagram feed)!
Now that spring has returned, feral cat colonies have become more visible. The winter of 2012 saw record snowfall in many places, including Toronto, Ontario, Canada. In the city, massive volunteer effort in the fall saw the construction of over 1,000 shelters for feral colonies through bi-weekly building meetups that worked to use donated and sponsored materials to provide a low-cost and practical solution for kitties stuck outside in inclement weather. Since each shelter can hold up to three cats, this helped shelter thousands of cats in Toronto's TNR colonies from icy winds and snow.
