 First and foremost, we could NOT have been around for 10 YEARS if it wasn’t for YOU, EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU, OUR VALUED READERS! We THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HUMAN AND FELINE HEARTS!

 In honor of this momentous occasion, Cody and I have pawed through TEN YEARS of products that we have featured and chose the ones that are our FAVORITES to present to YOU!!

PET TREE HOUSES







Look familiar? It should because Pet Tree Houses has been featured on our blog NUMEROUS times, not always in an obvious manner, ours is often photographed with Cody on it because he is on that tree ALL OF THE TIME! Cody has had his Pet Tree House for YEARS and it is STILL his favorite place to nap and watch the world go by every...single....day. I love the tree as much as Cody and that is the reason I will never feature another cat tree on our blog, why when this is the BEST? The incredible people at Pet Tree Houses are "Purveyors of Natural Feline Fun".  Their mission is simple: Offer the highest-quality handcrafted real cat trees so that your feline companion feels as if they are living in their true nature. Of the many styles available, their most popular real cat tree is the Sycamore, and it is unlike any real cat tree you’ve ever seen before. See for yourself! Visit www.pettreehouses.com

LENNYMUD



LENNYMUD is a small company owned by a husband and wife team that handcrafts ceramics in their New Jersey studio.  They named their business after their rescue cat Lenny- a mischievous and clumsy tuxedo cat whose accidents always ensure ample shelf space in the workshop.  As cat owners (and now new dog owners as well) many of the items they sell have sentiments that are purrfect for cat lovers with a sense of humor.  LENNYMUD was recently featured on our blog and I am simply CRAZY about their products! I am going to peruse their site some more for possible holiday gift shopping! Their website isn't just for cat lovers, they have something for EVERYONE! All items are dishwasher, microwave safe and created with all non toxic, lead free materials.

CAT AMAZING SLIDERS




Cat Amazing SLIDERS is their most interactive treat puzzle – with shifting and sliding inner sections to continually change the maze and refresh the challenge! We have featured various products of theirs numerous times over the past 10 years and their mazes are the ONLY mazes that Cody owns, by choice!  They help slow down his gobbling of treats/kibble and encourages him to think and use his natural hunting instinct, while having FUN at the same time!


The Cat Ball®
"Tribal Orange"


"Navy Turquoise Geometric"
The Cat Ball® is a modern, cave-style, cat bed. This designer cat bed has two openings, one larger than the other, and has six foam-filled panels. Made in the USA with high quality cotton fabrics that look great in the home. The Cat Ball® was one of the first products that Cody reviewed back when our blog was a baby! It remains a favorite in our home!  Available at www.thecatball.com and www.amazon.com/thecatball



SQUARE PAWS
ANCHOVY CAT CANDO
Cody and I are huge fans of Square Paws and we are captivated by their unique, creative, quirky, beautiful, unique and stunning creations! The Anchovy Cat Cando is the newest offering of theirs that we are lusting over! Made of solid, paint-grade plywood, bendable plywood, and solid wood, this cat condo is hand-cut and hand-assembled with a series of routed grooves at front and back to simulate the industrial canning process.  It comes outfitted with plush nylon carpeting, gray at the top surface and golden beige at the interior to cradle your cat in comfort.  The exterior is hand-painted with a hammered-finish silver metallic paint, while the interior is painted golden yellow to mimic the interior and exterior of an actual sardine can. A fixed wood post on the exterior is adorned with woven sisal carpeting, which is an ideal scratching surface for your kitties.  The top has a screw-in hook to help complete the sense that this can is open for feasting!
  Learn more at: www.squarepaws.com


MUNCHIECAT



Regular readers of our blog will recognize this hilarious and adorable Wine and Cheese set from munchiecat.com  When I photographed Cody with their items for the blog, it was one of my most FUN photo sessions ever. I chuckle when I walk into my office and find Cody's "wine bottle" laying on the floor as if he just finished a bender! This Wine & Cheese set by munchiecat is made with soft minky fabric and includes catnip, crinkle, and jingle toys to bring out your cat’s playful yet sophisticated side! Munchiecat’s toys are made from durable, non-toxic materials, so you can feel good about offering them to your cat. Plus, unlike many other pet toys, their toys are designed to be safe.  They do not  use any small plastic parts, feathers, string or beads that could break off and pose a serious safety issue. In fact, they follow strict safety guidelines and constantly try to improve through their customers’ feedback and extensive research.


So, tell us! Which gifts will you be getting for the favorite cats/cat lovers in YOUR life? 

We have our ears perked wanting to know!

Once again, thanks for joining us throughout this past decade, sharing the good times, the sad times, the exciting, loving, fun and sometimes crazy times as well! Your support and caring are unsurpassed and deeply appreciated. Without YOU, there would be no Cat Chat With Caren and Cody!

Much love and gratitude from,

Caren and Cody
