    This looks a lot like my house, maybe not so many wall hangings but I do have a cat collectible, trinkets and toy collection.[/caption] My daily CAT alert share this great story about the 

    Museum Exhibit on Cat Ladies! Not sure if I like this title,  but I do love how they promote and educate about TNR through the exhibit itself and promotes the incredible work that Cat Ladies (and cat men) do to help cats. The article has a great radio segment to listen to and some cool pictures! Does you house look like this? Mine is pretty close. This looks a lot like my house, maybe not so many wall hangings but I do have a cat collectible, trinkets and toy collection.

    On Halloween weekend Papas Pet Project had a grand opening celebration to usher in the new pet supply store and soon to open adoption center at their new location at 14 Manomet Point Road, in Manomet. Dustin and I arrived just in time to see a few kittens and dogs dressed in adorable costumes! We had a lot of fun that day and I produced a pet mews segment for PCN. The organization will continue to do adoptions from Per Smart in Plymouth, but the new location will allow them to expand and help many more cats and kittens! The proceeds from the pet supply store, which was decorated like a late 1800's country store, will go directly to support the adoption center!

    September is Happy Healthy Cat Month, and I thought it would be fitting to interview a local veterinarian about the benefits to brining your cat to the vet and what they are looking for when during the visit.

    This kitty was happy to accommodate me and Dr. lee from Morningstar Animal Hospital, Kingston, Massachusetts. I got a great story - including b-roll that supported the segment, which aired on PACTV - Community News show last week.

    For more information on their great show, and to let them know you enjoy watching cat content and pet stories, go online

    to! Special Thanks To:  Dr. Lee DVM

    How a crazy cat lady had a wedding of a lifetime!

    It's positively been a whirlwind year for me, starting last January 20th when my now husband proposed to me in the woods of WildCat Hill. I would say a purrfect proposal for a cat lady, and that set the stage for a year full of activities for the both of us. My parents had an engagement party in early spring and I was off and running, planning an October 2014 wedding ceremony and reception.

    I grew up in my mothers bridal shop, Priscilla Calway Bridal And Formals, in Whitman.  I had some insight into the wedding planning process. However, as many of you know, planning and budgeting your dream vision are two very different things.

    Our hope was to somehow combine my favorite color, ORANGE, with my love of CATS, while also incorporating Dustins love of BICYCLES, all into one fall|Titanic themed wedding.

    Mission Accomplished!

    With the help, input and support of my closest friends and my bridesmaids and the tireless efforts of my cousin Pam, we were able to orchestrate the coolest, most fun, most Purrfect wedding EVER!

    Invitation Inspiration

    I decided to use my Purr View TV show cat as my inspiration for the wedding invitations and wedding ceremony program. My friend Gail designed all the printed materials, and Dustin's sister Dawn printed our wedding invitations. Purr View Cat was turned into a boy and girl kitty, and I put them on a vintage style bicycle -in orange of course.

    Welcome Guests

    When guests arrived they were greeted with two scarecrows holding hands,  along with their orange cat. This was to represent how much we love our kitty's and were becoming a family.

    My Matron Of Honor, Karen, embellished the boy by adding a beard to match Dustin's beard, and added a ball cap too.

    To the girl we added her own bouquet of flowers to match the wedding party.

    The Head Table

    We found a tabletop bicycle for our head table that matched our wedding invitations and my cousin Pam found these two wooden stamps- letter T and D for our names. Getting ideas from Pinterest and being crafty she painted them orange to match.

     Decorating The Hall 

    Since it was October, I decorated the rest of the space with autumn themed items. I found pumpkin candle holders for the centerpieces for each table at Christmas Tree Shop and I added my own cranberry and orange silk wreaths around each tea light holders. I also added pumpkin scented candles.

    The Wedding

    We had a small and intimate wedding at the John Carver Inn. Surrounded by our friends and family. Dustin's sister played the violin and her boyfriend performed acoustic guitar for us when we came in and left the wedding-it was magical.

     Breakfast Brunch Reception

     Since we were doing a wedding and reception in one location, and we didn't have a DJ to move things along, we decide that it would be helpful to provide a program, so our guests could know what to expect and when. We had a breakfast brunch served at the John Carver Inn and they did an AMAZING job! They accommodated my wish to serve French Toast Casserole, in the buffet and we did a carbonated cider toast. Everything was sooooo Yummy!

    Cutting of the Cat Cupcakes

    I wasn't interested in having a wedding cake. We had a small wedding and cakes were very expensive and even more expensive to have the facility cut it up and serve it. Being a morning  brunch wedding it didn't seem to fit. So I had Montilio's Baking Company deliver an assortment of Italian pastries, and they also designed two cat cupcakes for me and my husband. One was a boy with a bow tie and the other a girl, decorated in bright ORANGE of course. Yes, yes, they were yummy.

    Making My Very Own DRESS!

    When it came time to find my dream dress, it just didn't exist- so I made one!

    All the fashionable dresses are sleeveless, halter top type prom dresses and I was totally not into that. I have a more vintage style and wanted a cowl neckline, a layered bodice, soft and comfortable fabric so I could eat and enjoy my wedding. For the skirt, I wanted a fit and flare with a peplum built in, but I ended up with three gores at bottom back skirt. When my mom closed her bridal shop 18 years ago, I took a dress that I loved at the time and put it into storage. However, when I went and looked at it after my engagement party, I didn't love the style anymore. Although I outgrew that style, I loved the fabric. It was Dupioni Silk, embellished with tons of flowers, sequins, and all kinds of things that I used in my new dress that I designed!

    My mom made the dress, at her shop Sew many Things. I helped cut out the patterns, restyle the patterns, cut out the bodice three times, redesigned the skirt tons of times -until I got it JUST RIGHT!

    For the layered look I was going for I used the silk bodice under my new bodice with the cowl neckline. I used the same silk in the gores in my skirt, made a cover for my bible which I carried with me, and I used the flowers as a wrap for my dress.

    I also wore FLIP FLOPS!


    Hair Stye and Handlebar Mustache

    My hair was in an up doo, and was styled by Jen Houle, from You Look Fabulous in Abington who came to the John Carver Inn early in the morning and set my hair. My hair stylist and colorist is Marie Ferris of Salon Sorella.

    My make up was crafted by Niki Scichilone, her company is Make Up By Niki of Plymouth. She is so wonderful to work with and is the best eye brow waxer I've ever known. She also introduced me to the world of extra eye lashes- and I love them!

    Did you notice how cool Dustins Beard and Mustache were that day. Inspired by many Youtube videos and The Bearded, He spent all year growing his handsome beard and handlebar mustache and he looked absolutely amazing on our wedding day.

    JANUARY 25, 2014 BY 

    Water fountains for cats are becoming much more common in households of every budget.

    That’s probably because cat lovers know that keeping their cat healthy starts with good food and fresh clean water.
    • Clean Water
    • Less Contaminates
    • Cats Are Attracted To Fountain Experience
    • Water Tastes Better
    • Special Needs Cats Drink More Stay Healthy
    • They Look Cool
    What better way to get clean water for your cat than by providing a water fountain with a filter to clean out contaminants. You can find all types of fountains online, at petco, and in specialty catalogs. The second reason I think that cat water fountains are a big hit is because cats seem to be drawn to the constant flow of moving water. It has an appeal for a lot of indoor cats- and it can encourage kittys to drink more often -I’ve seen it first hand. Cats with medical conditions such as kidney disease can benefit from drinking more water and a home water fountain is a great idea to try. I also think it tastes better. Like tap water verses spring water.

    Pumps Get Blocked with Fur

    Unfortunately, cat fur can block the filter and cause the pump to start making a slightly annoying sound and stop the water flow all together. It’s an easy fix though. The first time I had to clean one out- I thought it was as easy as rinsing out the inside of the pump and filter area and covering it back up. But it wasn’t. However, It dosen’t take long to really clean out the filter and the pump when the water stops flowing- it takes an extra step but fixes the water flow immediately!

    Easy Fix

    Here’s how the water fountain looks in each step and I will walk you through each step of taking it apart and cleaning it. Here’s what one of the ceramic cat water fountains looks like when it stops flowing-notice very little water coming out of the top. And it was making a annoying noise. (Plus kitty likes to play in the water so the water level is low, and the pad underneath is wet. Here is an example of what a cat water fountain looks like when it’s ready to be cleaned. The next step is to unplug it from the wall, and take it over to the sink and drain any water out of it. Then remove the top ceramic fountain -it just lifts off. This is what the fountain base looks like when the fountain top is removed and the water is drained. There is a plug that goes into the pump under the cover and the pump filter assembly looks like a shell, with little suction cup feet keeping it in place.

    It’s a good idea to take a picture of the layout so you can reassemble it later you’ll know exactly how to reposition the pump and the cord and the little hole where the water comes up, back in place for your particular fountain piece. What you see now is a pump and a water filter. The pump circulates the water and the water filter cleans the water of contaminates.

    The next step is to remove the filter assembly. Check for cat fur underneath and on the filter. Rise with water.

    There are three places to clean with water and check for fur.

    The first is to remove the filter and clean it off with water. The second is to lift up the pump and check the side for hair stuck to the intake area, and the third is to clean out the shell so any hair or dirt or slimy water slime is disinfected out. I encourage you to keep your particular models instruction pamphlet, so you can follow the cleaning instructions closely. I only clean it with warm water and I haven’t used soap on the filter I have cleaned the little shell case and the ceramic fountain with warm water a light soap.

    This is the pumps intake area, there is ALWAYS cat hair here, you may not see it clearly but there’s cat hair there. Wash it off or use a paper towel to remove it from the spaces in between the intake area. Now that everything is removed you can clean out the base of the shell assembly and then put everything back into place.

    Now you can clean the fountain. Making sure to clean off any slimy spots and get out any cat litter, dirt from cats playing in it, or cat hair in the bowl and you’re ready to put it all back together again. Once you have put everything back into place, close the cover on the shell assembly, Replace the ceramic fountain cover, matching up the hole from the pump, and fill with water to the fill line.

    After your first try at it, this process should only take five minutes. If you have cats that love it as much as my furry friends do, you’ll need to be quick. Mine was waiting for me.
