The Best Cat Hack Ever


Cat Hacks

A couple of months ago, curiosity got the best of me and I clicked a Buzzfeed link for 26 Hacks That Will Make Any Cat Owner’s Life Easier. Because I have a cat that loves to walk across my laptop as I’m trying to work, number 15 especially caught my attention- to put a shallow box next to the computer for the cat to lay in. I don’t know why this never crossed my mind before- it’s no secret that cats will get in to any box.

This is seriously the most GENIOUS HACK EVER. He loves this box, and lays in it all day next to me while I’m working. He even sleeps there all night sometimes. These were all taken on different days (try to ignore the messy table!), in some of his favorite positions- the most common being the ones that look the most awkward (hello pic 1!) How is that even comfortable??

Seriously a life saver for anyone with codependent cats :)

I haven’t shared an Instagram post in months, but it’s a fun way to look back at some of what I’ve been doing or what’s caught my eye in the last few months, that I didn’t dedicate an entire post to. And of course, there’s plenty of cat pictures- because what would Instagram be without that?

cat pictures

Today’s this guy’s birthday, and even though this picture of him hiding from the camera is a tad blurry, I had to share. It’s been 9 interesting years with this crazy cat, which is hard to believe. I sound like a nostalgic mother, but I remember the day we went to adopt him so well and I can believe how fast the time has gone!

Here’s a few more of both our cats, just for some extra Friday cuteness. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably seen these before, but hey, adorable cat pictures never get old, amiright?


Not to state the obvious here, but how awesome is it that it’s Friday?? Hope you have a great weekend!

Weekend Snapshots- aka cuteness overload


Oh man, did I enjoy this long weekend! It was my first time in a loooong time that I wasn’t working in restaurants and actually got to have the whole 4 day holiday weekend off. It started with me leaving work early on Wednesday due to some family scariness, but everything is a-okay now.

On to the good- I got the Etsy shop up and running (thank you so much for the tweets, comments, and messages!!!) and my best friend is in town from Italy for a few weeks so I finally got to meet her perfect daughter (how cute is this mohawk???!).



The past 5 years a couple of our friends have come over for Thanksgiving and this year their dog kept insisting it wasn’t too cold to swim, although she would just quickly jump in and then shake the water all over us :)

Our littlest cat is such an Arizona native! Our house is about 70º right now but she is cold as can be. We keep catching her burrowed under the blankets, smashed up against the other cat, or standing in a beam of sunlight from a window- it’s pretty hilarious.

Thanksgiving weekend

Well, everyone loves pictures of babies, dogs, and kitties, so there ya go. How was your weekend? Please tell me you didn’t finish all your Christmas shopping!

cats off to ya…

skirt: hand-me-down
scarf, shoes: vintage- thrifted
bag: vintage- estate sale
necklace: bday gift


I am trying to resist the urge to buy every cat print clothing item out there and it’s not easy, especially when you pop into Urban and see this tee for only $12 (part of a 2/$24 tee sale).

This week has been off to a good start- it’s rainy and cooler, we bought plane tickets for a long weekend getaway, and I unexpectedly had yesterday off so I spent it thrifting. It is birthday month so I should be spending it celebrating, right?
