What happens after you design an innovative cat bed that cats really love to use? First, people shared their love and appreciation. Our customers have sent us thank you letters, gifts, flowers, emailed us photos, tagged us on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, and come to see us in person at CatConLA, at the Urban Craft Uprising shows in Seattle, At Motley Zoo Animal Rescue's annual Yappy Holidays events and at SEAMEOW Con.
That was the first thing to happen.Then we started to get media attention.
The Cat Ball® cat bed has been in Oprah Magazine and on Animal Planet's "My Cat From Hell" tv show. We've been featured in the Seattle Times twice; Wirecutter reviewed the Cat Ball®; King 5 News interviewed us for Evening Magazine; the Cat Ball has been in HGTV Magazine and as the creator of the Cat Ball® cat bed, I've been interviewed by 425 Business Magazine and Catster Magazine. Starter Story has shared the background of how I started my business. Our beds have been reviewed by many bloggers, including the Spears Sisters, The Anti-June Cleaver blog, the Meow Lifestyle blog, gift guide for cat lovers by Brit + Co; Animal Lover Gift Guide at Goop.com; Animal Behavior College Blog included the Cat Ball on a product list. We have been interviewed by The Cat Lady Podcast and have worked with The Purrrcast. We've received customer spotlights at Starlight Labels, and ShipStation.
Our cat bed products have been included in gift lists, including Hauspanther holiday gift guide; BuzzFeed guide for terrifying shark gifts; a BuzzFeed guide on necessary cat products; various Etsy gift lists. Our Shark Cat Ball featured at Cool Stuff for Cats; in the Surf & Turf issue of Fetch Magazine, published by Pet Plan. Our Cat Ball® cat bed is going to be included in an upcoming pet gift guide in one of the nation's largest metropolitan papers, to be published later in 2019. We will update this blog when the article is up.
