It’s been awhile!

Hi friends! Wow, I was just looking back and realized the last time we posted was in February! What a whirlwind the last few months have been. I’m really excited to share the news with all of you that my husband and I have found a house that we absolutely LOVE and we’ll be moving in June! Yup, we’re moving to the ‘burbs! No more Boston apartment, no more parallel parking on the street every day, […]

I work hard so my cats can have a better life

I work hard so my cats can have a better life

Well, it’s official. We’re house hunting. It’s kind of a surreal feeling to actually be looking for a house. My husband and I moved into our South Boston apartment eight years ago–before we were even engaged! And we need to find our new place by the end of June! Ahhhh!! That’s so soon. What struck me as kind of hilarious this week was the fact that most of the things on my house “wishlist” are […]

Happy New Year 2017 from TuxedoTrio

Happy New Year!

Wow. I can’t believe another year has passed. It feels like just yesterday I was writing about all the fantastic things we did in 2015 and setting my blogging goals for 2016. I did blog more this year, but not as much as I wanted to. I hope to keep working on that goal for 2017. We have some exciting times ahead of us for the next year, too. After eight years (EIGHT YEARS??) in […]

Fixing up an old cat tree

When Ben and Desmond were kittens, we bought this giant cat tree for them to play on. I even have this adorable video of the first time they ever climbed it! If you have indoor cats, it’s important to provide them with furniture that allows them to climb and scratch. Being able to climb keeps their minds and bodies active in an otherwise mundane environment, and giving them something to scratch encourages them to destroy […]

DIY Weekend

City living is starting to weigh on me lately, especially since I feel like we have outgrown our tiny apartment. Unfortunately, it will probably be another year before we’re able to move into our own home and buy lots of pretty new furniture. Most of the furniture we own was bought nearly 10 years ago when my husband and I moved in together. I know once we buy a house we’ll probably trash a lot […]

Keeping your cats hydrated in those hot summer months

Well, summer is finally here and I couldn’t be happier! To me, summertime means concerts, vacations and the beach! We might live in the northeast, but Boston can get HOT in the summer. In fact, the last few weeks have given us several 90-degree days in a row. Keeping a keen eye on your cat’s water intake is important during these hot summer months. To help you stay in tune with your cat, check out […]

The Door Buddy: New Favorite Product Alert (plus a Giveaway)!

The last few weeks have flown by for us–why does summer always seem to go by so quickly? In June, I flew to Phoenix, Arizona for my first ever BlogPaws conference! What an experience. And man, was it hot! It was 116 degrees outside on my first day there. If you don’t know what BlogPaws is, let me fill you in. It turns out I’m not the only person who keeps a blog about her […]

National “Take Your Cat on an Adventure” Day with Purina Pro Plan

I must admit I have always wanted my cats to somehow be able to enjoy the outdoors, but in a way I could know they were safe. We live in an apartment in the heart of Boston, right between the train tracks and a major highway. It’s definitely not an ideal place to let your kitties roam free. But, when I learned that Purina Pro Plan declared June 15 National “Take Your Cat on an […]

Thinking of Desmond this week

Yesterday marked two years since that awful day Desmond died. For those of you who don’t know the story, it was very sudden and completely unexpected. Up until that day, Desmond had been a healthy, happy cat. He would have turned 3 years old a few months from then and had never had any health issues before that day. He was a little more relaxed than the other two cats–opting to stay snuggled up in […]
