Pettie Awards celebrates excellence in pet blogging today. We’re one of four finalists for the Best Cat Blog category. We’d be speechless if we won but stranger things have happened. Either way, it’ll be fun to watch the ceremony at 6PM EST at Dogtimemedia Pettie Awards Like they say, it’s an honor just to be nominated. Thanks again for all your support and for loving cats!
All the winners receive checks for $1000 to donate to their favorite shelter. We’re excited to find out who will win $10,000 for the Unsung Hero Award. The winner, someone who goes the extra mile volunteering at an animal shelter, gets to donate the prize money to the shelter of their choice. Talk about win win!
We have winners of our own. Our month long “Think Pink” giveaways in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month continue. We have two winners for last week’s giveaway courtesy of Pets R Loved Congratulations Ms. Phoebe, you have won the pink t-shirt prize and to Joanna M. ,you have won the black t-shirt prize. Look for an email from Layla and Cat Wisdom 101.
The fun folks from Kritter Kondo sent us a fabulous deluxe pet enclosure like the pink one in the photo at the top of the page. Since the Cat Wisdom team testers are all mancats, they sent us a green one which we set up in the garden. We are advocates for a safe indoor/outdoor experience for cats. There is no substitute for fresh air and a touch of nature. Cats loves sniffing outdoors but you control what they sniff by where you place the Kondo.
What we like most about a large portable enclosure is flexibility. The Kritter Kondo comes packed flat in its own zippered “suitcase” and is unfolded in a snap. The awning type roof provides some protection from the sun. There are two doors that swing out and close securely with a latch. There is room enough for a bed, food & water bowls, toys and a small kitty litter.
Merlin checked it out and as a blind cat cannot be left outdoors unsupervised. While the kondo is sturdy nylon mesh, we don’t recommend leaving any pet alone in it for extended time. It can easily house two to three cats or small dogs for limited periods of time.
We love the many possibilities both indoors and outdoors.
- Indoors, it can be used when pets need to be separated temporarily or when introducing pets to a new kitty family member. One end can remain open to another room to increase roaming space.
- When moving, decorating or any time you need to your cat separate and can’t lock them in another room.
- For cat rescue adoption days. Much handier than big metal crates.
- Use on apartment balconies to prevent jumping on ledges.
- While traveling or RVing.
- Outdoors in a supervised location like your porch, patio or garden.
