CatCon 2017 – Feline Yogi Will Be There!

CatCon 2017! Feline Yogi Will Be There!

Feline Yogi is looking forward to CatCon

CatCon 2017 is just around the corner!

CatCon® is a 2 day convention for people who love cats. It’s where pop culture and cat culture converge, a place to buy unique cat-centric merchandise, and meet lots of special cat guests. To top it off there is a huge cat adoption lounge because you can’t have a cat event without the opportunity to adopt a cat.

For the past two years including the first year CatCon debuted Feline Yogi has been a part of this “all things cat” event. We are excited to be part of it again this year! Pippy the CEO (Cat Executive Officer) of Feline Yogi and who is in the above picture, is working tirelessly to help me get ready for the show. She runs a tight ship and more importantly she keeps me on my toes.

As a Los Angeles based business, Feline Yogi loves that we don’t have to travel very far, furthermore we love  it because we can meet up with other like minded people who love cats. And many of them love cats and yoga!

Ticket Information

This year’s CatCon® presented by Rachael Ray™ Nutrish® will take place Saturday and Sunday, August 12 & 13, 2017  at the Pasadena Convention Center.

The official charity beneficiary for 2017 is the  Ian Somerhalder Foundation .  Two dollars of every ticket sold will be donated to them as well as a portion of money raised by all Meet and Greets.

CatCon® tickets will go on sale May 2, 2017. For more info, visit the official website of CatConWorldwide to find out more.

As we get closer to the date, I’ll update this blog and my social media channels as to where the Feline Yogi booth will be and other special announcements.

Meow & Namaste!

Paige & Pippy

It’s Pippy the Feline Yogini here and I’m happy to report we are growing and bringing  in lots of new customers or catstomers as I like to call them!  We are not only on Etsy these days but The Grommet, Amazon, Modern Cat, and various other boutique sites such as Hauspanther and My Three Cats & Co!

TTPM (Toys, Tots, Pets, & More) which  gives you honest reviews of family products including toys, baby products, pet toys, kids’ electronics, video games, books, mobile apps, and more gave us  a paws up and they named us as one of the “Most Wanted Cat Toys of 2015” .

Tortitude: The BIG Book of Cats with a BIG Attitude

Tortitude FC

 

Greetings Felines and Greetings to the humans who serve you!

What do I love as much as yoga? The answer would be books about cats! And boy do I have a wonderful one to tell you about.

My human and I recently had the honor to read Tortitude: The BIG Book of Cats with a BIG Attitude by Ingrid King. Not only is it an excellent and informative read but the physical book is gorgeous as well. It is beautifully designed and  includes pictures of some of the most gorgeous tortes ever! My human has the book nicely displayed on her desk and likes to take breaks from her work so she can  ooh and aah at the pictures of all the adorable torte kitties.

I on the other hand know my species is adorable so I was more interested in reading about tortoiseshell cats and what makes them unique. Ms.King does a great job in paying tribute to one of the most feisty, unpredictable, and fiercely independent felines in the domestic cat kingdom. Her book goes into great depth on the unique genetics and what makes a torte a torte! Not only are the personalities of tortes special but the coat color as well plays a large part. A torte is not a breed and tortoiseshell markings can be found in many breeds including the Abyssinian, British short hair, Somali, Siamese, Sphinx, and many  many more. I could go on and on but I don’t want to give too much away because I want you to read this beautiful tribute to these very special cats.

After reading the book, my human told me I was probably a torte. I told her to email and ask Ms.King of which she did. I already knew the answer but I thought it best she hear it from someone other  than me. She was told that I am a torbie! A torbie is a tortie with tabby stripes.  There are other torbes featured in the book including Artoo and Grit and if you get the book, you can see what I’m talking about.  My human then told me I was a real piece of work! I just rejoiced inside and acknowledged to myself that my work is done! She finally gets what I’m about!

Yes, I have Tortitude!

Yes, I have Tortitude!

Visit Amazon by clicking here and check out this lovely tribute to torte cats. It’s a wonderful read, a nice book to add to your cat book collection,  and would make a great gift to give the cat lovers in your life.

Below is some info about Ms. King and don’t forget to visit her website The Conscious Cat.

Ingrid King is the award-winning author of Buckley’s Story: Lessons from a Feline Master Teacher, Purrs of Wisdom: Conscious Living, Feline Style, and Adventures in Veterinary Medicine: What Working in Veterinary Hospitals Taught Me About Life, Love and Myself. She is a former veterinary hospital manager. Her popular blog, The Conscious Cat, is a comprehensive resource for conscious living, health, and happiness for cats and their humans. The Conscious Cat has won multiple awards, including DogTime Media’s Pettie for Best Pet Blog in 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014, and About.com’s 2012 Readers Choice Award for Best Website About Cats. Ingrid lives in Northern Virginia with her tortoiseshell cats Allegra and Ruby.

Feline Yogi Yoga Cat Update

I practice yoga everyday!

Yoga Cat and Master Feline Yogini Pippy

 

Greetings Felines and the humans who serve you!

Feline Yogi has taken quite a hiatus and it has been several months (in reality well over a year!) since we’ve last blogged. I know many of you follow us on Instagram, the social media outlet we are most active on. Between making the Yoga Cat Mat, managing our business, and of course making time for our own yoga practice, we just have not had the capacity to blog as much.

Although we will not be blogging every day, we will be updating this blog much more often in the days ahead. Sometimes to let you know of something exciting that is happening and other times to share some pictures of our wonderful feline catstomers practicing their yoga on the Feline Yogi Cat Mat.

Speaking of cats practicing their yoga on the Feline Yogi Yoga Cat Mat, here’s a picture of the very accomplished Fredrick about to practice downward facing cat pose!

National Feral Cat Day 2014

This is Popcorn one of the Community Cats my human cares for. And yes, she is fixed!

This is Popcorn one of the Community Cats my human cares for. And yes, she is fixed!

 

Greetings Felines and the humans who serve us!

Today is a special day! It’s National Feral Cat Day 2014!

All cats are special whether they are indoor, outdoor, live with people, or free-roaming without a human to own. Today however, we honor and bring awareness to feral cats or community cats as my human likes to refer to them. Community cats can include urban (street) cats, country (barn) cats, tame cats, wild (feral) cats, cats living in managed colonies, and strays surviving on handouts.

Alley Cat Allies (one of my favorite groups) launched National Feral Cat Day in 2001 and it is observed each year on October 16. The purpose is to raise awareness about feral cats, promote Trap-Neuter-Return, and recognize the millions of compassionate Americans who care for them.The theme for this year’s National Feral Cat Day is “TNR: From the Alley…to Main Street. ”

My human and I are big advocates of Trap Neuter Return or TNR for short.  This is the method of humanely trapping feral cats, having them spayed or neutered, vaccinated, ear-tipped for easy identification and then returning them to their colony to live out their lives. For more info about TNR click here.

Happy National Feral Cat Day 2014 and thanks to Alley Cat Allies for all the work they have done and continue to do in bringing awareness to the public about these special cats!

Meow and Namaste!

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. – The Ultimate Yogi

mlk quote

Never, never be afraid to do what’s right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society’s punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way. ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

Greetings Felines and the humans who serve us!

Today we honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his work. Dr. King was not only a great civil rights leader, humanitarian, and Nobel Peace Prize winner, he was also a yogi.  He followed the path of Karma Yoga which is the yoga of selfless service. This type of yoga is practiced as a means to help, heal, and share. He was a “peaceful warrior” committed to nonviolence or ahimsa which in Sanskrit means the avoidance of violence.

Feline Yogi salutes Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and we thank him for his work to make this world a better place for all beings who live on this planet.

Until Next time….Meow and Namaste to All!

Love,

Pippy
