Customize Your Kitty Litter Facial Mask – The Crazy Cat Lady Way!

Kitty litter facial masks rose to fame when renowned beauty blogger Michelle Phan shared her experience. While there’s nothing wrong with DIY kitty litter facial masks, you have to be careful because many brands of kitty litter contain aluminum silicate (the sound alone is intimidating!). If you want to save time, you may consider the ready-made Gritty Kitty™ Litter Mask. Not only it is effective in cleansing the pores but it is likewise affordable! If you don’t like the idea of putting kitty litter on your face, don’t worry because ours isn’t made of actual kitty litter but of super cool absorbent clay that comes from volcanic ash. When mixed with liquid, an electrical charge is produced which in turn draws out the skin’s impurities. The clay acts like a sponge because the toxins stick to it.  And it gets even better then that. There are so many applications for it, in the bath it softens skin, it takes the itch out of bug bites, its soothing for psoriasis and much, much more! To make the most out of your Gritty Kitty litter mask, you may customize it via naturally derived plant extracts instead of plain water.  Here are some of our favorites depending on the skin’s needs: Stop Stressin’ Meow Calming Mist – Mix this with your mask,  and you’ll have a spa-like experience because luscious lavender smells oh-so-good! Lavender likewise reduces stress and the same time, soothes sensitive, and dry skin but it is useful for acne and all skin types to soothe and tone. Chamomeow Face and Body Mist – Chamomile works best because of its calming properties. It also nourishes...

Your Guy’s Guide to Facial Hair Grooming – Whisker Away!

Beards, mustaches, goatees and even sideburns are part of a man’s most admired qualities… right? Well, while not all of us agree on it the guys seem to be taking to that look. Purrrsonally, I dig it! 🙂 We may be Crazy Cat Ladies but we haven’t forgotten about the men who love us and their grooming necessities. Today, you’ll see tons of celebrities rocking facial hair styles including Ryan Gossling and Brad Pitt. As you may have anticipated, the more men who sport the lumberjack look the more it becomes accepted. And while beards and other bristles are making a comeback – we’re not gonna let our guys go ungroomed. So here are 4 tips to help him keep everything from a 5 o’clock shadow to a full beard kept, clean and looking great. 1. Stick With It.Once he finds a shape that works his face – go with it! Growing a mustache might be a good look for someone who has a larger nose, and a little stubble looks great on those with thinning hair but not every style is created equal. Help your guy make a decision based on what works for HIM. 2. Let it Grow. Congratulations… He’s made a choice. But shaving and shaping can get tricky. Be patient because shaving too early can leave him looking like Bob Segar. That beard may creep down his neck and that’s ok! Trimming to closely can be a big no-no. Yowza! 3. Lather Up. Facial hair isn’t the same as the hair that grows from the scalp. While you may not want to share your shower time, let him linger...
Catify Your Home – 5 Useful Decorating Tips for Cat Lovers

Catify Your Home – 5 Useful Decorating Tips for Cat Lovers

Decorating your home can pose a challenge if you have cats, regardless of how cute and lovable they are. Our lovable fur babies have the tendency to become over zealous and one sweep of their tails can break your prized ceramics into tiny pieces! Here are 5 helpful decorating tips for cat lovers so you can catify your home: 1. Keep fragile items away from your cat’s territory. Kitties are wild you know… and therefore have no regard for price tags. It doesn’t matter if your possessions are pricey because as long as they can reach a surface, they may and will get to it. Low shelves, dressers, and center tables should not contain breakable items. The best way to display the fragile items you use in home decorating is to move them up – but not if your kitties can jump to their location!  As much as possible, steer clear from glass items because once they shatter, their fragments might injure your cat.  Always consider your cat’s favorite places and their tails when placing new objects.  Cats do like to be up high so consider cat trees and other catified home decorating items to keep them off of your shelves. Placement of indoor plants. Decorating for cat lovers can become challenging with plants around. They might chew on the leaves, dig in the soil, or even urinate in your pots! To avoid chewing, you can try to spray bitter apple or a natural deterrent (non-toxic only) on the leaves but it’s best to check with your vet (please!). On the other hand, to prevent a cat from digging, you may place stones or gravel on top of the...

3 Reasons to Foster a Pet

Pet fostering is a great way to enjoy the company of a furry four-legged friend WITHOUT making a big commitment. Of course people love pets, but not everyone can take care of one, especially for the entire duration of their lives. But that’s no reason you can’t have one in your home. Did you know that you could become a foster parent to an animal? It’s exactly what it sounds like. You can provide pet foster care to the many shelter animals out there in need and without having to consider what you will do if you have to move, fall in love with someone who has allergies – or whatever! Life throws us a lot of curve balls and sometimes people don’t want to but they have to surrender their pets to a shelter. If you’ve ever been to an animal shelter and seen the rows upon rows of loving animals trapped in cold cages while they long for the warmth and affection only a home can provide then you know not all pet owners are responsible ‘till the end. You can be a pet foster parent and help the innocent animals find a home! If you’re looking for a reason, here are just three: 1. You Save a Life. Many animals get euthanized if they do not get adopted. At some shelters, they may have only a few short days to make a move and if they don’t – that’s the only chance they’ll get. You’ll be able to sleep soundly knowing that all it took to save their lives was to supply them a warm place...
