We did it! It’s our 1st anniversary at Cat Wisdom 101 and we couldn’t have made it without you! It’s been an incredible year of cats 24/7. Writing about cats, healing cats, consulting with cats and their guardians, photographing cats and connecting with cat lovers all over the world like you! We feel very blessed and grateful. Odin has this to say…

blogging-cat-wisdom-101-anniversary-blogoversaryOdin also would like to invite you to his 2nd birthday party tomorrow. Stop by anytime tomorrow. There will be catnip cake, prizes and surprises! Oh, and we have a giveaway!

Odin got an early birthday gift. We’re so used to cat-related packages arriving, Odin gets excited by the sight of cardboard. A large box arrived by UPS while Odin, our official product tester was um, sleeping on the job napping. We were thrilled to unpack a SkratchKabin™ combo bed with scratching area sent by the nice folks from Brinsea Products, makers of KatKabin TheSkratchKabin™ won the 2011 Editors’ Choice Award by Pet Product News International magazine, awarded annually to new products featuring excellence in function and design.

Gris Gris was intrigued by the sisal mouse hanging from the entrance…KatKabin-cat-bed-giveaway

and even fussy Merlin deemed the cozy interior comfy with it’s reversible cushion. We like that the cover can be removed and washed. The SkratchKabin™ is ideal for porches year round and fits any decor indoors. We wish we’d had one of these when Domino used to live on the porch in his former feral days. But where was Odin, our official tester ?


Refreshed from his nap, he went straight to work, sniffing out every inch of this new nest inside and out.


Without coaxing, he killed the sisal mouse and made himself right at home.skratch-Kabin-cat-bed-sisal-mouse

Odin is a master hunter outdoors but all cats whether indoor/outdoor or indoor only need to exercise their natural hunting instinct. Cats also love cozy places. where they can nap in privacy. The more the merrier! Our cats like using tree bark and roots as scratching posts so we don’t actually have any man-made scratching posts and wondered if Odin would be interested.


He took to it like a duck to water. Oops, wrong analogy. He’s loves eating duck.


I loved everything about the SkratchKabin™ The only problem? I don’t think Odin wants to share it. Would you like to win a SkratchKabin™ for your kitty? You can win one in your choice of colors. See the product choices at KatKabin

  6. Happy Birthday Odin, and Happy Anniversary Wisdom Cat 101. My name is “Corky the Cradle Cat”, in case you have not heard of me, I was born with my hind legs backwards and crisscrossed. I had surgery 8 week ago to correct it, but ran into complications and 3 weeks later had to have my left leg amputated. I now live with 3 other cats and 3 dogs, and I love them dearly, but sure would love a cuddly place to call my own for the times when I just want to sneak off for a nap, your Skratchkabin in Cocoa would be PURRfect for me. Thank you for considering me, and congratulations to whomever the lucky kitty is that you choose to be the recipient of this PAWsome little hideaway.

  72. Happy Birthday, dear Odin! I hope you have many, many more!

  73. Whoops. Forgot to say… Oatmeal is a purr-fect colour (had to get a cheesy pun in)

  74. My cats would LOVE one of these! Blueberry would be our premium choice, although any color would do. This way they could move out of the boxes and into some sophisticated housing. 🙂

  75. Happy 2nd Birthday to Odin! My 2-year-old kitty Honeydew shares his love of mysterious packages. She is born to shop and is the first to inspect every bag we bring home.

    The kabin would get plenty of use between my three cats… if I win I can see myself having to buy 2 more just to keep the peace! 🙂

  76. My kitty’s would LOVE this =] Happy Birthday Odin!!!

  77. Happy Anni-birth-ary! That covers it, right? Oh, and if you draw my name, I’d like the cocoa one please. It will compliment the color of the cats.

  80. Congratulations and thanks for a great year!!
    My cat and I look forward to many, many more.

    Should we be lucky enough, oatmeal, blueberry or cocoa. Any of the prizes are too cool!

  113. Enjoyed your product review/blog and a fantastic use of pictures to amplify the content.

    Are your photo’s allowed for use on Pinterest??

    I will be back, thanks.

  114. HUGE CONCATULATIONS ON YOUR ONE YEAR BLOG-O-VERSARY!!!!!! We love your blog and the knowledge/beauty/depth and love of cats that you share with us every day!

    We would love to be entered in the give-away and Cody said he would be thrilled to win this great cabin in BLUE please!

    Oh…don’t hate us but we are selfish, if we share this…our chances of winning ARE LESS!!!

    Aren’t we just awful!!!!!!!!!!!?????? That is the only reason why we aren’t sharing!!!

  115. After AlleyCat eyed Gris Gris & Odin giving their new KatKabinit a 4 paws approval, she has made up her mind that she needs one too! I could really entertian our readers with my antics on and in the KatKabinit, she tells me. She has been meowing up a storm to me to make her point very clear.
    My blog started out about mostly needlepoint, but with her “purr~sonality” the readers really think that it is all about her! The cocoa color one would be a great compliment to that black fur.

  116. Happy anniversary! This looks so awesome! My fur babies would love it in blueberry 🙂 thanks!

  117. All these kitties look like they really enjoy it! I know my Mercy, Mostly and Boobobers would love it also! What a great product for cats! My three would enjoy any color.

  118. Fiona would love a cocoa colored one. Right now she loves resting inside cardboard boxes that I cut a hole in the side but those get chewed up pretty easily. This looks like a great product.

  119. Happy 2nd Birthday to Odin. We are always interested in getting our fur kids a new toy! We have a Bombay mix and a Nebelung and I am sure they will love to have fun with a KatKabin. Our furniture is a chocolate color, so one in cocoa would work out nicely. Thank you for the opportunity to win one.

  120. Happy Birthday to Odin! I’m guessing my three furry residents would enjoy the SkratchKabin just as much as Odin appears to. I can picture them hiding inside and peering at the FL lizards as they scurry by. Love the concept and appreciate the giveaway!

  121. My cats are currently having a dispute over who gets possession of the new cat tent, so it would be great to have another new place they could hide! I’m thinking oatmeal would be the best color for them.

  122. ConCATulations on your Blogaversary! We really like the color blue…

  123. too cute! the oatmeal would go purrrrrfectly with my little fuzzball’s coat!

  124. Mowzers, has it been a year already? Odin has become quite the Expert in Testing! Very cool Kat Kabin, we’d love to be included in the running for the giveaway! Tweeted and Facebooked it, too!

  125. Happy Anniversary!!

    We love the SkratchKabin! We would love to win the cocoa one!

  126. This is awesome! Being a rescuer, I know our cats and foster kitties would have a blast playing in or just napping in a Cocoa SkratchKabin! Happy anniversary!! 🙂

  127. Happy Anniversary, Cat Wisdom, and happy Birthday, handsome Odin! Thanks for being a great source of kitty-love.

    My boys would go crazy for a SkratchKabin, and they don’t have any color preference 🙂

  128. My little Siamese, Max would LOVE this in Oatmeal and it would look great in our home! Not sure my Maine Coon would fit in.

  129. Layla – I can’t believe a whole year has gone by! I first met you for Odin’s 1st birthday party and it’s been a joy getting to know you and your family through your wonderful blog ever since. Your stories are always so engaging and well written, and your photographs are always so creative and compelling!

    Here’s to another wonderful year! Congratulations on the milestone and please enter us for a chance to win that great Kabin in oatmeal!!

    Xoxo – Deb, Dan, Zee, Zoey, Mia, Peanut, Rolz, Harley, and Jazz

  130. What an awsome site. Really cute pictures too.

  131. I would love to donate this katkabin in any color to my local cat rescue. It is a 90% cage free facility who also helps with low cost medical services for local kitty parents as well as feral cat care. My kitties (all rescue) are super spoiled all ready ♥

  132. What a wonderful site! Congratulations on your anniversary, and Happy Birthday, Odin!

    My furry black polydactyl former feral Blackjack Davy LOVES to scratch. He would like the blue Kabin, although we’re not really too fussy and would cheerfully accept whatever was available! As a life-long cat lover and rescuer, I look forward to hearing more from you.

  133. The Kabin is so cute! Luna would love it!
    Oatmeal pls

  134. These are fabulous! I think my kitties would love Oatmeal:)

  135. This SkratchKabin is AWESOME! My kitty would LOVE one of these! Honestly, I think all of the colors look great, but the Oatmeal is my, errr… the cat’s, favorite 🙂

  136. My Jonquil says that his presence inside a blueberry-colored Katkabin would make it even more attractive than it is! “Boo-hiss,” say D-2 and Emily, “our presence would be superior because black is more beautiful!” Happy Anniversary Layla and an early Happy Birthday to Odin.

  137. My girls would love this!!!

  138. My little Cheswick would love this in cocoa! fingers (and paws) crossed!

  139. Happy anniversary!! Kool Kabin !!

  159. My crazy kitties would love this! I we win 🙂

  160. Chestercat was taking a break from napping in the laundry basket and saw me looking at the product page. He purped at the screen and then tried to swat at the mouse on the cocoa one and gave me a dirty look because he couldn’t reach it. Since we rescued him from our local SPCA after he stayed there for 3 years, he seems to miss being able to play with all the wonderful donations they get 😉

  161. My cat, Thomas, would love to have this! He likes to snuggle himself into things, and this would be purrfect for him in blue. Thank you for the contest!

Mercy adores mice with tails so she’d be head over heals for that mouse! My cats would love one too and probably be very jealous to see the fosters get one, we might need 2!

  179. Happy Anniversary ♥

  199. Happy Blogoversary to you!!! WOW Odin, what a cool gift and I can’t wait for your pawty!!!

  200. My 3 10-month old sibling rescue kitties, Joel, Samuel and Ziva, had been using my rolled up yoga mat for play time hide and seek, but I found tiny pieces of blue rubber all around the house. Samuel, I discovered, was chewing on the mat and spitting up some of the pieces and eating the rest. (He threw up the rest later.) So now I keep the mat in the closet hidden away from the kitties. The kids really miss it. They sure could use a KatKabin in Oatmeal to take its place.

  201. I have two kitties and they would love this! One I know would nest in it, the other would adore scratching it!!

  202. My two cats would LOVE one in Cocoa! 🙂

  203. Would love to win the cocoa one. I know at least one of my cats would love it!

  204. This is beautiful,i really like the color blue

  205. Happy Anniversary, Layla! And Happy (early) Birthday, Odin! My four kitties (Annie, Bailey, Georgy and Mikey) would love it if we could win TheSkratchKabin! They, like Odin, always thrill to the arrival of a cardboard box— they know that it’s always for them. I think the Cocoa color is the most attractive of the three choices, but we would be happy with any color. I always look forward to your daily posts. Keep up the good work!

  206. My little one would go bonkers for one of these in blue. He loves scratchers and would also love a cozy napping spot.

  207. Enzo would love any color, but as his caretaker, I would choose cocoa. Looks like a lot of fun.

  208. Great blog! 🙂 I’m sure at least one of my four kitties would love playing in one of these. I think the oatmeal one would be best 🙂

  209. My girls would love, love, love a blueberry one, and so would I.

  210. Happy early Birthday, Odin!
    I would like blue…thank yue;)

  211. Happy Anniversary and thank you for the awesome giveaway! I’m certain my three kitties would love to have one of the ScratchKabins in the oatmeal color. >^.^<

  212. Happy Anniversary! My kitties would love this! If I won I would pick cocoa. Thanks for the cool giveaway.

  213. My kitties would love the chocolate brown kabin!

  214. I’d love to win one of these for my cat, who would love sitting in it. By the way, Odin is a great name!

  215. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY MISS LAYLA AND BOYS!! That SkratchKabin thing is way way cool and I’d just LOVE to have one myself. I like the cocoa color too although ANY of them would be swell. Mostly I want to say how much me and my Mom love CatWisdom and all of you….much love and many “Sammy Hugs” all around!

    Sammy (and his Mom)

  216. Happy Anniversary! My kitties would love this! If I won I would pick “cocoa. Thank you for the cool giveaway.

  221. Happy Anniversary!!! What a great giveaway!! xoxo

  222. Happy Anniversary from Allegra, Ruby and me!

    And what a fabulous giveaway. The people who designed these KatKabins sure know cats: making the outer surface into a scratcher is brilliant.

  223. The boys would love to win a skratchkabin, they promised they would take turns, nicely…. (who do they think they are kidding?)
    Harry feels that Oatmeal would best suit the decor of “his” living room. Thanks!

  224. Congrats on your first blogoversary, well done!

    And what a fantastic scratcher! We won’t enter the draw, but will wish the best of luck to those who do.

    We’ll be back for Odin’s birthday!

  225. Catnip cake?! I will SO be there!

    BTW, the birthday of the cat before me was about a day or two after Odin’s – and she too was a master hunter! I wonder what other similarities they have?

  226. My cat Oliver, a one-eyed neuro-different orange tabby, would looove to lounge in a cocoa colored Scratch cabin if only to get some time away from his pesky sister Penny who requires his (or my) constant attention.

  227. I know my gang would have a blast with this… cocoa, please!

  228. I would love to win a black one of these for my babies. I’m sure they would go bananas for it!!
    Thanks for the chance!
