Bachelor of the Week: Knox!

You guys!

Today, I bring you a bachelor that has touched my heart, but entirely from the outside, because he would require a medical license to touch it from the inside, and he’s still in the process of obtaining his pre-med test scores.

Wondering when he'll hear your knox on his door.

Wondering when he’ll hear your knox on his door.

World, meet Knox. He was found wandering outside with a suspiciously injured leg that, while following him, was not actually contributing to the wandering. It was damaged beyond repair. A kind person, however, brought him in to Tabby’s Place, and through the a generous Circle of Compassion grant from Paws and Claws Society for Animals, Knox’s leg and wound were repaired. And now, he is like me. He has three legs, which makes him awesome. I think that if he and I had babies, they would come out with three legs and would be awesome, too. Editor’s Note: Crepes cannot and should not have babies, and even if she could, genetics does not work this way. We’re still trying to explain this to her.

Unlike me, though, Knox also has FIV, which, as you may know, means that he requires extra immune support through a healthy diet and environment, and extra veterinary care, but with these things, he can live a long, healthy life. He has giant golden eyes and is currently in the process of learning to love. Can he do it? I think he can!

Do you want to meet Knox? Well, then come on over and Knox on the door to Tabby’s Place. If it’s too far, would you consider a small donation to help with Knox’s care? Med school books are pricy.

Memorizing his anatomy terms and looking cute while doing it.

Love,

Crepes.

 

PetBox: A Review by Tree House Cats & Coupon

You guys!

PetBox contacted me and asked if I would be willing to review another box. I thought about it and said, you know what? I’ll accept that box and then let MomFOD take it to a rescue of her choosing and let the kitties there review it! And so, please enjoy this review of my January PetBox by the first floor cats of Tree House Humane Society.

What is a PetBox: It is a customized (or surprise – your choice) box of goodies delivered to your house once a month based on the type of pet you have (cat and/or dog) and what his/her likes are. PetBox also promises to only stock the healthiest, best products.

How much does it cost? The boxes come in several sizes and you can order month by month, in three-month blocks, or annually, with discounts for the longer commitments, making the lowest price point $7.95 a month. All choices come with free shipping.

Whitman, a sassy tabby with the heart of a prankster and a touch of incontinence, is the first to check out the box.

Up first, we have Whitman. He pees on things, but he doesn’t know he’s doing it, so it’s not really a point against him. He took a look at the box first. Items included:

  • An organic grow your own cat grass kit
  • Grain-free dental treats
  • A fish on a string
  • A mouse on wheels
  • A catnip, refillable sea monster
  • Two catnip compressed mice

Whitman’s first choice: The mice. Let’s see how he liked them:

Success!

Success!

But then, little Chirpy moved in and tried to use the mouse as a hat:

"How do I look?"

“How do I look?”

I think she looks lovely. Also, she’s looking for a home, preferably a nice, quiet one with lots of catnip mice.

But then, things got serious:

The catnip takes shows its effects.

The Chirpster went bananas for this fish. But then, things really went off the handle:

Stampede!!!

Stampede!!!

Cats were coming in from all angles, including Max and Jax, the cerebellar hyperplasia kitties I wrote about a few weeks ago. They were teetering and tottering all over that box!

In the end, the kitties decided to keep the dental treats, mouse toy, fish on a string, and the catnip mouse. MomFOD returned home with the grow your own kit. But do you know what they loved best of all?

The box.

The Verdict: Box (and contents) enjoyed! The quality of the products was quite nice. All items were grain-free and/or organic and I would have no problem using these items in our own home. If you’re going to buy things for your cats anyway, and especially if you have a multi-cat (or dog) house, having a surprise box delivered to your door is a fun way to treat your pets.

We hope you enjoyed watching these kitties have fun with their PetBox! We were happy to be able to bring them a bit of joy and some new toys and tasty snacks, thanks to our friends at PetBox!

Highlight: PetBox donates a meal to a homeless pet each time a box is sold. Hurray! The #PetBoxFridays program allows PetBox’s social media community to nominate shelters and rescues to receive that week’s shipment of food and supplies.  So get to nominating!

Crepes Coupon: My readers here are privy to a coupon! If you want to try a PetBox, use the code “CATINTHEFRIDGE” to get 20% off. Apparently, this gives me a little affiliate bonus.

We’ve won Catdance 2015! This year, the decision was left to a panel of judges so no vote was required and our team has come home with the golden litter scoop. Other selections included Paranormal Cativity from our friends over at Kitty Bungalow Charm School for Wayward Cats and a few selections from the dudes over at SuperEpicCats.

We couldn’t have done this without the help of our team! And we’re thankful Tree House believed in our work and let us film there. Thank you to everyone who helped us make this film, and to all of you who supported and believed in us. And to Freshstep for the event!

We are so very proud!

Love,

Crepes.

Bachelor of the Week: Inuit!

You guys!

Did you know that many, but not necessarily all, white cats born with blue eyes are deaf? On that note…

Look into my eyes...

Look into my eyes…

May I present, Inuit, the big white cat with the roar of a lion! Inuit roars and roars and roars – because he can’t hear himself doing it, but you sure will be able to.

This lovely fellow was recently returned to Tree House because of his mighty roar, but don’t let that deter you! He’s a wonderful singing partner and, frankly, it’s hard to lose him because of instead of having to call for him, he’ll call for you.

Inuit enjoys long walks on the carpet and fun time with the laser pointer. He doesn’t care what music you listen to, as long as you do it with him in your lap. He loves to touch people and will follow you around the house whenever you’re home. He’s also skilled in American Cat Sign Language.

If you think Inuit is your snuggle buddy, contact Tree House Humane Society immediately! Hurry!

Love,

Crepes.
