Gifts for cat lovers: Catification and whiskerslist calendar

 

Catification, Designing a Happy and Stylish Home for Your Cat (and You!)

This book co-authored by Jackson Galaxy from TV show “Cats from Hell” fame, and Kate Benjamin of the uber-popular cat website Hauspanther provide you with ways to create feline-friendly home environments – while keeping it stylish (FINALLY!).

“Catification” as a concept based on creating a way to appeal to, and stimulate your cat’s natural instances (what they call the “raw cat” in this book).

how to make your home cat friendly and still stylishBy bringing cats inside – a relatively new phenomenon if you look at history as a whole – we have, for the most part, made them adapt to our lives. We feed them the way that suits our needs, not theirs. Ditto for the entertainment (or lack there of) and living arrangements we provide.

Jackson and Kate clearly know what they’re doing because “Catification” not only made it to #1 on the NY Times “Animals” best sellers list (beating out quite a few popular dog books I might ad…just saying’), they also came in at #17 in the “Advice, How-To & miscellaneous” category where the competition quite varied!

Catification New York Time Best Seller List

People who adapt their homes for their cats are often seen as “crazy” or “extreme.” This is absolutely NOT the case! In fact, they are they just more in-tune with a natural cat’s temperament and care enough to want what’s best for them. As a result, they will benefit from a more harmonious home and cats with fewer behavioral issues.

Here are a few pics of some of the “catification” I’ve done around my apartment. Wonder what Kate and Jackson would say….I’m a little nervous!

example of Catification Above from left to right:
  • Cat Wave Shelves by Urban Pet Haus, my cats love them and I think they look like art when not in use…well even when I use I guess! Several people have actually thought they were wall sculptures before seeing the cats jump up on them!
  • The Cat Hole (unfortunately name I know) allowed me to convert a small storage area under my stairs into a place to stash second litter box in my smallish NYC apartment. We call it the “catman cave” (they will create a sticker for you for free!), and although Haddie is an honorary member she rarely uses it!
  • Square Cat Habitat Itch Scratchersthey have ones that sit on the floor if your kitty prefers to scratch horizontally. I love these because you can choose from an array of colors as well as textures based on what your cat prefers scratching PLUS, you can replace the carpet very easily using FLOR carpet squares!
  • Kittyblock stackable cardboard loungers and scratchers.

whiskerslist, The Kitty Classifieds 2015 Boxed Calendar 

Based on a book of the same name by my fellow-blogger and friend Angie Bailey, this calendar will keep you in stitches – well at least once each day! And, you may just see a cat or two you recognize (if you catch my drift!).

Angie Bailey Whiskerslist

As you can see from the examples below, the calendar is a spoof of Craigslist – Craigslist as if it was written by and for cats! Categories range from “Personals,” “Lost and Found,” and “Help Wanted,” to name a few!

Angie (who you likely know from her blog CatLadyLand or her new book Texts From Mittens) became hip to this previously secret feline website when she caught her cats on it one morning after having forgotten to shut her laptop down the night before…or had she…perhaps they’d been watching closely and new the password. Wouldn’t put it past a cat, would you?

Whiskerslist kitty classifieds 2015 calendar

I love Angie’s author description on Amazon:

“….wife, and mother to two humans and three cats. She loves to take silly photos of her cats and sleeps with one eye open…”

As she’s wise to do after blowing the door off their previously underground lives! 

Order today with 2-day shipping for delivery by December 24th. Or just order regular shipping and give your gifts on New Years (it is a 2015 calendar after all!).

Use the widgets below to enter to win a copy of CATIFICATION and WHISKERSLIST. Feel free to enter both! Hey, you can always gift it to someone for their birthday! GOOD LUCK!

    Love your catification

  • Milene

    I would love some ideas to catify my home. I’m wondering if Petie might be in the Whiskerlistings.

  • Linda Szymoniak

    We have three cats right now, and with five Treeing Walker Coonhounds sharing the house with them, the cats really need places they can get away from the dogs. Don’t get me wrong, they get along great, but cats don’t always want as much attention as the dogs like to give. Even the cats want to be alone from each other at times, so I’d love to get more ideas on how to make our house comfortable for everyone.

  • Great stuff. I’ve already got the Whiskerslist calendar but I’d love a copy of Catification!

  • Holly E

    I would love to win Catification so that I can learn how to design a wonderful living space for my fur babies.

  • Holly E

    I love the calendar; super cute. I think one of my cats might be in there.

  • Betty Murphy

    Hi There!! Would SO LOVE to win either prize, but could REALLY USE the Catification book. Here I’ve just taken in a feral kitty, and have to figure out how to make MY DIGS look better than the outside world!!! Not so easily done, except for the fact that it is significantly warmer and drier in here.

    I LOVE your house, Tamar!! You’ve got some really great cat accessories, and have decorated so tastefully. Thanks so much for another terrific giveaway and post!! Merry Christmas!!

    Betty, Griffin Michael, and Riley Quinn

  • Debbie Schmidt

    My babies want the Catification book but , shhhh, don’t tell them, I’ve requested the Whiskerslist calendar. 😉

  • Debbie Schmidt

    Oh and I’m pretty sure Percy’s mom advertised in the local paper otherwise how could so many man cats have found out she was so easy???? Maybe I’ll see one of her ads in Whiskerslist calendar ???? 😉

  • How we would love to win one of these cool giveaways!

  • Lu Anne

    Well being the mom of 6 cats, 4 of them special needs, and a very large dog who THINKS she’s a cat, my place could totally use some catification!! I keep trying and, unfortunately, erring (sp?) when it comes to gettin’ the catification on!

  • Catification! I adore Jackson Galaxy though sometimes I have a hard time explaining to my husband what is needed. I could point to the book and say “see”!

  • jodie

    I need Haddie. And catification

  • Jackson Galaxy has ac lot of knowledge to share and I have a lot to learn

  • I’m sure the cats in the calendar will remind me of many cats I have known

  • Tiffanie Sorrell

    because I feel my 3 cats deserve the best life I can give them and this would help me learn how to make life better for them! Thank-you!!!

  • Megan

    Our fur babies would greatly benefit from Catification – we’re a recent foster failure with a high strung kitten and our four cats would love a better environment for entertaining the kitten as well as having more hiding spaces 😉

  • I would really benefit from this book because I have 7 cats that range from ages 2 &1/2 months to 12 years old. One is blind and my other girl is handicapped. I have a lot of cat items in my home but I’d love to know how to maximize everything so they all get tons of enjoyment and relaxation from everything. I’d also like to start a cool project and this is perfect for inspiration and guidance!

  • I’m pretty sure that my tortie girl Blazie has already put an add in for the kittens, free to any home – owner included lol. She’s got a lot of ‘tortie -tude’ and the kittens are invading her personal space and obviously it’s my fault. 🙂

  • Sachie

    We would love to find out more how to make our home cat friendly and fun! We love seeing how making small and affordable changes makes for a happy and well stimulated kitty! We have 6 so it would awesome books to read and learn from! Thanks for the contest and have a safe and happy new year!

  • Sachie

    W have lots of kitty friends so we would love to share what we learn from the Catification book! so much fun! 6 set of kitty paws crossed!

  • Deborah Darsie

    I have a lot of kitty friends, and hopefully 1 will be joining my household shortly.
    I LOVE the Catification concepts and I would enjoy the humor in the whiskerslist calendar!

    Have a great new year!

  • Annette

    I have three cats (about to have a fourth) and I worry that they are bored. We’ all benefit from this book: I would have ideas to make their environment more enjoyable and they would benefit by having a change of routine.
