Le Tent

After many months of jealously seeing pets live it up in their own custom teepees, I finally broke and we made one for the kittens. I enlisted the help of Lee for this one!

I watched a great DIY Tutorial from Pudge the Cat. Check it out here!

Cat Tent

It was super easy to make! Though a little rough around the edges (literally a fabric scrap), the boys really love it. We followed the tutorial and it was a breeze. We used dowel rods from Jo-Ann Fabrics, we had the fabric, instead of the string they suggest we used super long twist ties we had already.

I ended up using safety pins to hold back the flaps at the front, since the fabric is seersucker, it falls immediately. We definitely should have taken the stickers off the dowel rods before we tied them together, it makes it look sloppy. I also want to cover the twist ties with a hemp rope, they work well, but don’t have the look I’m going for.

Franky's ready for date night!

Overall really easy to make and if you’ve also been dreaming of your cat slumbering in a tent- DO IT! And send us pics!

Baby Franklin

Franklin, our BIG baby, is a mainecoon cat. He was born on January 19th, 2015. And he is a real heartthrob <3!


We got Franklin from Bellacoons Mainecoon Cattery, in the Greater Philadelphia area. I cannot say enough about how great Bellacoons Mainecoon Cattery is, and have recommended them countless times, to families interested in Mainecoons.

Franklin was a bit of a surprise for Fred and Lilly, but also to Lee. I have always wanted a big fluffy mainecoon of my own, and felt like it was the right time for us as a family. Fred and Lilly have always gotten along fantastically, so I was hesitant to add a 3rd cat to the mix. I did look at rescues in the area for months, before deciding that a kitten was the best thing to do. (A local rescue that I visited, Last Chance Ranch, in Quakertown, PA, is a wonderful organization, and if you are looking to add any kind of furry, feathery, or scaley animal to your family, check them out!)

Front and center again, what a diva!

OMG Franklin’s little face and big eyes!

Franklin has turned in a sweet and spoiled maniac, just like Lilly and Fredrick!

Dapper Franklin

We couldn’t imagine not having Franklin in our lives, he is a confident, affectionate boy, and makes everyday brighter! Making the decision to bring another cat into an established family unit is a big one. Cats are not like people or even dogs, they do NOT like change, and have to be introduced to each other very CAREFULLY. While kittens are super fun and cute, please think about adopting an equally fun and squeal worthy adult cat!



Dog days of summer…kitten style






I made this for the babies last night!

And you thought that Pro Wrestling was insane??? Clearly you have never seen these two little monsters go at it.


Saddle up tight for this montage.

Fredrick is the big handsome boy of the house. His tail is the longest fluffiest thing in the world. When he runs around the house he darts like a fox. His hair comes out of his ears and between his toes like a big old man. He takes the best care of his little sister Lilly. He loves to lay with her and help her clean her ears. As big as he is, Fredrick is a huge baby, he cries all the time when he is all alone.

Kittens First Night Home

Since I was so rude and never actually put up their first photos… I will try to redeem myself with these amazingly adorable pics!



It’s so crazy how scared Lilly was when we first brought her home. Now she is the biggest cuddle bug and loves to be around us!

Quick Fix: Kitten Belly Aches

Fredrick, being the sensitive gentleman that he is, is prone to kitten belly aches. Which, lucky for us, are followed by uncontrollable diarrhea. Tuesday night, I had the pleasure of waking up to him crying and pooping on our comforter!


Thank god, we have found a pretty good method to clear up his belly aches and get him feeling great again.

Once we notice that he no longer is having solid poops, there is no missing that smell, I take away their food for 24 hours. I leave out plenty of water for them and watch to make sure they are drinking it. Even though, Lilly has not had any belly issues, we still take away the food from both of them, just to make it easier for us.

After 24 hours of no food, at this point he usually is still having less frequent diarrhea, I mix up ground turkey and a can of pumpkin for them to eat. This mixture is very light on their stomachs and easy for them to digest. I use 99% fat free ground turkey, and cook it without oil, in a nonstick  skillet. Once the turkey is completely cooked through, I mix in one can of pumpkin, which you can find in the baking aisle. I typically will give them 2-3 small servings of the turkey mixture, until I have used it all. I store it in the fridge for them. It usually lasts 3 days. Of course if your kitten is still suffering from diarrhea after this point, immediately take him/her to the vet.

The biggest risk with kittens having diarrhea is that they can become dehydrated. If your kitten has been suffering for more than a few days, take them to the vet ASAP.

Fred and Lilly are not picky eaters, and are notorious scavengers of all types of food. If you do have a picky eater, you can mix the ground turkey with white rice, or plain mashed potatoes. The key is to get them eating easily digestible food to get their digestive systems back to normal.
