Blog of the Week – Cat Chat with Caren and Cody

Blog of the Week – Cat Chat with Caren and Cody

My blog of the week is Cat Chat with Caren and Cody. This blog is co-written by a blue tabby named Cody and his handler, Caren. They have just celebrated their 5th year of blogging. Cat Chat features stories about cat health issues and rescue group events. It also includes reviews on books and cat-related products, along with giveaways that readers can enter. Cody is a fan of professional football, especially the Detroit Lions. I like this. Football is a sport requiring strategy and brute force, both of which I agree with. (I occasionally watch the NFL, but I prefer the excitement of college football. I support the Oregon Ducks, because one of my handlers graduated from the U of O, and the Oregon State Beavers, because their veterinary hospital saved my life.) Cody and Caren also talk about cat rescue organizations. I was a rescue cat, so I can appreciate that they are promoting taking cats out of bad situations. The goal of Cat Chat with Caren and Cody is for the blog to be “a warm, cozy, inviting place for cat lovers from all over the world.” It makes me want to curl up by a fire with some cat nip and wet food. I heartily encourage you to visit Cody’s website. It has useful pet information, product giveaways, and an outstanding cat named Cody. The site was done in honor and memory of Caren’s former cat,...
Blog of the Week – Glogirly

Blog of the Week – Glogirly

To achieve my goal to rule the world, I hold myself to high standards. They are impossibly high standards, especially for mere humans. So I was surprised to find a cat blog that comes close to meeting my exacting standards when it comes to design and cat content. The “Blog of the Week” features Waffles. No, not the breakfast food that humans devour at breakfast (and sometimes dinner in my household). Waffles is a cat. Waffles and his housemate Katie are the subjects of the Glogirly blog. You have likely already heard of Glogirly. The blog has quite a following. Of course my glowing endorsement will only enhance it’s credibility. The blog follows the adventures of Waffles and Katie. Because they do not have a dog to tease, they end up poking fun at each other. I find it amusing. The blog is polished and well organized, as evidenced by the many design awards it has won. I will begin the reeducation of my handlers regarding the tenets of good design by making Glogirly the homepage of their browser. My handlers tend to be slow learners, so it may take awhile. But Glogirly is not all about good design and entertaining me. It has a serious mission: To raise funds for homeless cats. I support this cause whole-heartedly. The more cats that can be place into homes with Internet connections, the easier it will be to organize and train them. Glogirly also has humorous videos of Waffles and Katie, as well as photos, product reviews, and contests. I recommend it. A Glogirly Video (Not surprisingly, it was a Friskies contest finalist.)...
Cat Blog of the Week – I Have Cat

Cat Blog of the Week – I Have Cat

As I reenter the arena of blogging, I feel it is necessary to inspect successful blogs and glean knowledge from them. The current subject of investigation is a blog called I Have Cat. This blog is run by Tamar, who I will forgive for being a human. She has a solid writing style with correct spelling and grammar, which I appreciate in cat-centric blogs. Tamar is the the handler for three cats: Kip, Petie and Haddie. My female handler enjoys the astrology posts and the stories of struggle against the “cat lady” label. But I know that cats will like the discussions of cat toys and furniture, as well as the blog’s advocacy on behalf of cats. I Have Cat also has contests (I will be adding some KAHNtests here soon), making it not only fun to read, but also profitable for the winners. I also enjoy reading the cat product guide and have highlighted one item for my handlers to buy me – the Square Cat Habitat furniture. This house needs more elegant and more scratchers. While I’d love for you to hang around here, you should check out I Have Cat as my choice for Cat Blog of the...
