    I love adding new ornaments to my cat Christmas tree that I set up every year. When I was at the Christmas Shop in Abington, I found a beautiful ornament that reminded me of my cat meow Kitty, with a pretty pink ball of yarn. It jumped out at me and I had to have her. 

    Usually I enjoy the felted ornaments, but this one was just sparkly and beautiful.

    This past Christmas I had the idea to pain a custom cat christmas caroler on wood with acrylic outdoor paint. I wanted to do this last year but I never got as far as painting it. 

    I had all the inspiration from pinterest searches and looking at Christmas cards etc and I had collected an entire folder of ideas for how I wanted the hat, the mittens, and the wardrobe etc. 

    This year I was able to make it happen and cat Christmas Caroler was designed, painted, cut out and placed outside for Christmas and new years. 

    Next year I hope to make another one, and eventually have an entire choir on my lawn!

    Isn't this the cutest wreath for a cat lover? One of my clients made them from an idea she found on Pinterest. The cat toy was one her cat Olivers actual cat toys. 

    It has a bell inside so whenever we open the door it jingles a little. 

    I want to thank my client who gave it to me as a gift! Thank You kathy! I love it.

    And also share what a crafty a beautiful design this is for cat lovers. 

    She says its easy to make and you can be very creative with the materials to match your own style! 

    What fun!

    What are your favorite Magazines and Holiday Cat-alogs?


    Since it started snowing last week, it really feels like winter has begun. The cold weather, short days and holiday shopping season, always seem to kick off the catalog season too. Around this time I begin to receive unique catalogs in the mail,  -and so do my cat clients! Shopping from catalogs is just so much fun. Check out the top CAT-alogs delivered to CAT families, you may find new ones that will fit your style and taste. If you don't see your favorite catalog listed, please share in the comments, we'd love to hear what your MUST HAVE's are.

    Last Christmas I started to wonder, "What kinds of catalogs spark my kitty clients attention, and of course mine?"  Starting last year, all through the spring when we had no sun, and all through the hot summer vacations I started to keep my eye out for exciting CAT-alogs! One of my concierge cat sitting services includes taking in the mail for my clients- and in doing so, I began to see similar catalogs appearing over and over. What I've learned is that most of my clients gravitate to similar lifestyle items, and catalogs!

    Cat lovers are attracted to Food/Gourmet, Kitchen/Baking, Garden/Yard, Home DecorGreen/Organic and Pet Supplies. But the catalogs I began to see the most were Clothing and Accessories and Gifts/Collectibles. 95% of my clients are women, and it's no surprise that they shop for great clothes and accessories and they shop for other people too! I love reading the humorous magnets and wall hangings in many of my clients homes, they make me laugh and brighten my day. There are many catalogs that offer fun gifts that do the same.

    One of my favorites is MaryJanes Farm, they have a lot of farmhouse style and homespun decor ideas. What are some of your favorite catalogs/magazines?

    Are you feeling a little sad that no one will see your Christmas Tree This year? I do! 


    Dustin and I had a fun idea to put together a montage of as many Christmas Tree pictures and video clips as we can collect from friends, family and my clients too! 

    Have a friend that may like to share their tree too or a picture of their cat near the tree? Then let them know the more the merrier! 

    We will put them all together to Christmas music and share it with everyone on Christmas day! 

    So please think of sharing either a picture of your tree or a short video clip with us so we can share it with everyone.

    You can email them to me at tevans@thekittyscorner.com  or send a private message through facebook or my facebook Kitty’s Corner page messenger.

    or text me at 781-447-5489 

    Here are some ideas: 

    • A picture of your tree
    • A short video clip of your tree
    • A picture or video clip of you and your pets in front of the tree
    • A picture or video clip of you dog or cat near or under or looking at the tree
    • A close up of your favorite ornament then zoom out to see full tree
    • as many cats as possible but any pets are welcome to join the pictures

    Don't have a tree? Substitue similar Christmas decorations with ideas above

    BUT DON'T WAIT the deadline is Christmas Eve Morning.

    This is meant to be fun and creative! 

    We will put it together and premiere it on Christmas day! 

    Merry Christmas

    I just loved my new cat care signage, it makes me so happy to see the Kitty's Corner cat with her pink bow when I drive around. What a happy car it is.

    Ever feel like your cats want to design their very own feeding schedule? It could look very random or even be scheduled at the weirdest hours of the day - and night. Coming up with a schedule that you can live with and that works for the cats can seem a little daunting especially if you spend most of your time at home. 


    When you're at home, the cats are more apt to sequester you to the kitchen whenever they are even the slightest hungry. During the covid-19 quarantine, my cats were thrilled to have me at home and made sure I knew every single time they were hungry. All throughout the day the cats would come into my office and let out a screeching cry-mroew just to make sure I clearly understood they were hungry. 

    Our cats eat their wet food in the morning around 7:30 and in the evening around 5:00. But since I was home I have learned that they get hangry for snacks mid day and just before we go to bed. So I have had to adapt my schedule. 

    Things To Consider

    Your Cats Age and Needs. 
    We have a senior cat that's 18 and she has kidney disease. I find that she throws up if we sleep too late in the morning. This can happen because she gets nauseous easily with kidney issues. She would be a great example of a cat that would benefit from a daily feeder, and making sure it opens for her even earlier than we wake up. I have another cat that is overweight and she gets very hangry quickly. If we don't wake up on time she can get very upset. Younger cats seem to be able to wait longer for breakfast but most older or special needs cats are just not able to wait too long for breakfast so I would consider this first meal very carefully

    Activity Schedule 
    Some cats are very active in the morning and early evening and then sleep during the day. As long as my cats get their breakfast first thing in the morning, they will settle into nap time during the day. Nap time also consists of what I call quiet time. They like to sleep in front of the glass door and watch birds, then they will rotate their nap locations, another cat will start what we call the roomies, where she runs around the house, climbs the cat tree, scratches her claws and then dashes into the bed way up high on a shelf for another nap. When cats are rotating from place to place, I find that some of them enjoy a snack and will ask for one. This docent mean that they are super hungry for a can of more cat food, but they do seem to enjoy a small bite of homemade chicken, or chopped up bacon bits, or other healthy snack. If you have a timed feeder this would be a good addition to the feeder during the afternoon. 

    Strategic Feedings
    You've been in the kitchen, right in the middle of preparing a meal and in walks kitty meowing and circling your feet wanting dinner. When the cats are mreowing, and won't leave you alone, you can be sure cat dinner is way to late. Ive been there! I make every effort to feed them before I start to cook dinner. One thing that bugs me is when I am eating dinner and the cats are Mreowing so loudly and I cant even hear myself think. 

    Best Way To Stick To Their Schedule. 
    When you're home all the time it's easier to keep a schedule you all can agree with. But if you have to work late, or travel, the best way to keep them on track is the timed feeder. If you have a timed feeder you or a pet sitter can refill it and the cats can enjoy their food, snacks and medications on the schedule they are use to. If you don't have a timed feeder then the second best thing is a pet sitter that can pop in and provide one-on-one meals once or twice so you know they are eating and feeling well.
