Giveaway: Win 20 Pounds of Darwin’s Raw Cat Food for Your Cats and Your Favorite Rescue
This giveaway is sponsored by Darwin’s Natural Pet Products*
When it comes to feeding your cat, the less processed her food is, the better it is for her health. A raw diet is the least processed of all feline diets, and raw feeding is becoming more and more mainstream as cat parents look for alternatives to highly processed pet foods.

Review: Tuft + Paw Kip Cat Cushion and Little Dip Cat Bowl
This post contains affiliate links*
I love seeing more and more cat product companies taking into account that their products do not just have to please cats, they also have to make the human happy. Because let’s face it, if you relegate that ugly piece of cat furniture into a part of your home that you rarely use, chances are your cat isn’t going to use it, either.Continue Reading
