Cats! Enter to win the Neko Napper Pet House by Nekochan!

Hi and happy Friday!!!

Cody and I couldn't be happier to present one of the most adorable cat homes ever! It is made by our friends at Nekochan (the creators of Cody's FAVORITE toy), and it is a part of the Neko Nappers line, it is the:

Is this not the most adorable house? 

When we think of Nekochan, the first thing that comes to mind is QUALITY. Nekochan is a manufacturer and distributor of unique, high quality pet products.

Cody and I have featured products from Nekochan numerous times, the first time, was on March 7, 2011 when Cody first fell in love with his "kittenator" (which to this day, is his FAVORITE toy!)

 It is evident that the chief designer at Nekochan has a great understanding of cats and the things that they love! Nekochan's COMMITMENT TO HIGH QUALITY is, in my opinion, unsurpassed.

The Neko Napper Pet House was created to resemble a "chateau" and has a pad that is plush (perfect for making biscuits!!) and is machine washable! You wash it in cold water and air dry.

Like the rest of the Nekochan line the Pet House is:

  • High quality and durable
  •  Foldable for storage and travel
  • Has walls that are "tufted" which gives it added support and makes it easy to fold!
  • The dimensions are 16.5" (L) x 18" (W) x 16.5 " (H)
  • Is stylish living for cats AND small dogs!!!!
  • If your cat prefers NOT to be in an enclosed space, you can unzip the roof and use the roof as a pad as well!

What cat doesn't love a hidey-hole to escape from the world? The Neko Napper Pet House makes napping extra cozy, stylish and FUN!

Assembling the Pet House could NOT be easier! I assembled it within a few minutes, and if I can, anyone can!

To assemble you merely:

  • unfold base
  • place the sleeping pad inside the base
  • attach the roof to the side walls with zipper and Velcro strips, that's it!!!

It even keeps away GIANT FURRY INTRUDERS!!!

If it is possible, I think I love the Neko Napper Pet House as much as Cody! As many of you know, Cody was ill last month. Ironically, I had set up his Pet House practically the same day. Once assembled, Cody IMMEDIATELY entered it and spent the majority of the days that he wasn't feeling well in his Pet House.

The photos above were all taken at that time. The Pet House not only offered Cody warmth and a cozy place to rest, it allowed him to still be with the family, AND have his OWN SPACE without fear of anyone (or a certain woofie) bothering him.

To say that this Pet House was a godsend would be an understatement. During the time that Cody wasn't eating and was lethargic, having this Pet House become his haven, brought me peace of mind and at least a little bit of joy! It made me feel good to know that even if he wasn't feeling well, he had a wonderfully warm and inviting space where he could rest.

Thankfully, Cody is FINE and the Neko Napper Pet House is STILL one of his favorite spots to nap. It has been bitterly cold here in Michigan as it has been  in many parts of the country, and to Cody, this winter is "pawsitively cozy!" because of nis Neko Napper Pet House!

Kitties are you ready?

Our friend at Nekochan has generously agreed to offer a GIVE-AWAY!!!!  Yes, that's right!! ONE LUCKY KITTY WHO RESIDES IN THE U.S. OR CANADA WILL WIN ONE!! (It is a $70 value!) Entering is super easy! Just enter on the Rafflecopter below! Good luck!!!

MHS asks for community’s support
 to save thousands of animal lives this year
In this season of caring, show your love to homeless animals by supporting the Michigan Humane Society’s (MHS) 2015 Valentine’s Telethon, presented by Purina. WXYZ-TV Channel 7 Action News anchor Alicia Smith will host the Telethon, which will air in commercial breaks throughout the day on Thursday, Feb. 12, from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. Funds raised by the Telethon are critical to helping MHS rescue and care for thousands of animals in great need.

Alicia Smith and Friend
From Cody: Last year my Mom worked a telethon for Michigan Humane and  so many of the kind people she met on the phone brought tears to her eyes!

“The Michigan Humane Society has numerous programs that are absolutely vital to the animals and pet owners in our community,” said CJ Bentley, Senior Director of Operations for MHS. “But without the community’s crucial support, we cannot help those who need us most. On February 12, please share the love and help us save animal lives throughout the year.”

The 19th annual MHS Telethon will feature adoptable pets and stories that show how your support can make a lifesaving difference for area animals who are homeless, abused or neglected.  As a private, nonprofit organization, MHS receives no government funding and is not affiliated with any national humane organizations, relying instead on the generosity of its supporters to save more animal lives.
Lifesaving donations can be made on or before Feb. 12, online at or by calling 
(855) MHS-GIVE (647-4483), 24 hours a day
In addition to Purina, sponsors of this year’s Telethon include PetSafe,, Wendy’s-The O’Brien Foundation, Premier Pet Supply, Center for Computer Resources, Strategic Staffing Solutions, Bravecto, Heidebreicht Chevrolet and Grid4 Communications.

The Michigan Humane Society is the largest and oldest animal welfare organization in the state. MHS works to end companion animal homelessness, provide the highest quality service and compassion to the animals entrusted to our care, and to be a leader in promoting humane values.

Undercover Cat: Book 4 In the Klepto Cat Mystery Series by Patricia Fry-Enter to Win!

I didn't think it could be accomplished, but Patricia Fry has outdone herself with Book 4 in the Klepto Cat Mystery Series:

The suspense begins on the first page and continues up to the final page! One of the questions that I was hoping would be answered was not, I am anticipating it being answered in the NEXT book in the series! While reading, my heart was racing with anticipation and my eyes swept the pages eagerly awaiting what was going to be happening next!

New characters are introduced, old characters are re-visited and in many cases are intensified.  Klepto Cat Rags has a much stronger presence, and some characters that were heavily featured in the three previous books in the series, were less of a focus in this suspense-filled winner!

In Undercover Cat a local journalist goes missing just before she turns in her story exposing vile cat hoarders.

Will she be rescued?

From Matilija Press:  a body is discovered in the Iveys' orchard and Rags (their kleptomaniac cat) goes missing. Can someone in a nearby homeless camp shed some light on the evolving mystery? Does Rags have a secret of his own? 

I deliberately did not mention some names and other details in Undercover Cat, because if you haven't read the three prior books in the series, I didn't want to divulge information to ruin your experience!

One of the things that I loved was a much heavier cat influence, (book number one in the series had a heavy cat influence, but the ensuing books did not). 

From Chapter Six in Undercover Cat: cats seem to be happy-well, some of them do...I guess I never noticed that cats have different personalities. Since I've been coming out here to feed them, I've seen some silly cats, scaredy cats, sneaky cats-hate those sneaky ones. Some of these cats are bossy, some are loud, some are quiet. Some want to be seen and others obviously don't. I guess they each have a story, just like every person does.

Klepto Cat Rags is at his finest, an unlikely love relationship blossoms, the Iveys (from books one, two and three) have a secret, in this action-packed, suspense-filled story!

Undercover Cat is  more intense,  the "bad guys" more evil, the writing and character development is equally as superb as the three books that precede this volume. Undercover Cat is once again a quick read at approximately 244 pages.

To learn more about the Klepto Cat Mystery Series read my previous reviews (in chronological order):

Spectacular Selfie Sunday News!

Hi every furry! It's Cody!

Before I show you my selfie for today, Mom and I wanted to give you an update as to how I am doing.

Remember when "Dr.Smiley's" assistants stole my blood and shipped it off to some unknown land to be tested? Well, "Dr.Smiley" called Friday night with some news for my Mom and.....


WAS 100% NORMAL!!!!

Mom was shrieking and when she got off of the phone she and Dad kept telling me what a great job I did! They kept kissing me and petting me. I just looked at them as if they were nuts, (which they are!) 

I told them I  all along that I was fine,
 and NO ONE would listen!!

Kudos to "Dr.Smiley",  had he been in town to begin with, this might have all been "nipped" in the bud! "Dr.Smiley's" instincts are always spot on, we are so lucky to have him in our lives. That being said, I am grateful that I don't have to be taken back to his "Evil Castle" for at least a few months!!

So, now that things are back to "normal", as normal as they can be at my house, Mom was bugging me to do a Selfie for today so that we could update everyone. I didn't want to take a selfie, but to make her happy, I relented.

Mom and I would like to thank EVERYONE for all of their comments, emails, messages, etc. and for the MANY purrs and prayers that I received.  There are no better people in the world than animal lovers unless they happen to be pet bloggers. They rally around each other and give support, prayers and love unselfishly and they truly "get it."

Mom and I are proud to be a part of such an incredibly caring group of people and their pets.

We love you and thank you ALL!!!

Cody and "Mom"

Now, head on over and see the rest of the pawesome selfies over at Cat On My Head!
