Just send in a photo of your cat and any other details that you want printed on your shoe, and in just a few short weeks you’ll be the proud owner of a pair of kicks with your favorite tabby looking back at you.
Cats can be known for being pretty particular about their food.
Pet owners will do anything to please their feline friends. Dogs? They’ll eat just about anything — wet, dry, with gravy, from a box, in a bowl, out of the toilet… but cats? They’re something a bit more special and refined.
Is it any wonder that the cat food aisle at the grocery store is stocked with more flavors than the soup aisle? But more importantly, do cats really care what you feed them?
Naming your new puppy or kitten is a pseudo-exact science.
Some people let their kids name the pets, as that’s a way to encourage ownership with the kids and hopefully force them to remember to feed or clean up after their new furry companion. (Ha! Likely not to happen, but it’s worth a shot – right, parents?)
Others base the names they select off the pet’s coloring (black cats would be “Smokey” or “Shadow”. Spotted dogs would be, well, “Spot”)
And others may decide to name their pets after their own favorite hobbies. Which may explain why there are so many pets named after either spices or alcohol.
Are you watching the current BRAVO TV program LOLWORK?
It’s a reality TV program that allegedly shows the real-world behind-the-scenes workings of how the Cheezburger Network — home toLOL CATSand millions of other funny animal pictures and videos — does business.
While most the show appears to be purposefully driven to make what is supposed to be good TV, there are specific business-aspects that get aired that really for-real give a reasonable peek behind the curtain of what it takes to run a popular content-driven website.
Watching LOLWORK will give you a good reminder that it’s always hard work to create good, compelling CONTENT for your website, but that it’s that same content that also brings eyeballs to your site in the first place. Focus on the content, let everything else fall into place later.
First, since we know you’re going to ask — the APPA is the American Pet Products Association, and they’ve been doing an annual National Pet Owners Survey since 1998. So they kinda know what they’re talking about when it comes to America’s pets.
