The Soho Grand Hotel Offers Guests Companionship

True, the hospitality industry is a competitive one, but what could upscale hotels possibly think of next to one-up each other’s luxury amenities?

The Best Way To Humiliate Both Yourself And Your Pet

Anyone who happens to own a dog and live in a concrete jungle knows there are certain challenges the urban environment presents.

The Catorialist: Kitties Got Mad Street Style

It was only a matter of time! As you may have guessed, The Catorialist is a street style blog ... all about cats (and a parody of The Sartorialist, obviously).

Girl Talk: Cleo, The Breakup Kitten

Jesse was too attention-starved. Brendan was too spacey. Darrick was too needy, not to mention a big-time conservative. But for the first few years of my relationship with Chuck, he didn’t seem to have a fatal flaw. Sure, he was allergic to cats, but that hardly seemed like a dealbreaker. It wasn’t until the…

Fido’s Chance At Sartorial Superstardom

I want a dog. Badly. But unfortunately, living in Manhattan with roommates is not exactly conducive to housing puppies. The Limited is making it really hard for me to stray from adopting a little pet of my own, as they've launched a brand new line of sweaters for man (and woman's) best friend. Along…

You Wish Yo Kitteh Ate With Chopsticks

OK, the cat doesn't hold the chopsticks, the owner does, but still! This is, like, the cutest thing I've seen since the last time I saw a cute thing on the internet. I like the crazy hair growing out its ears, its eager eating method, and its tiny little begging paws. Apparently, this is some…

Quick Tip Of The Day: How To Give Your Dog Medicine

As I've already mentioned, my dog Lucca got herself a nasty case of abscessed anal glands the other week, which resulted in her getting them drained surgically. She had to take these big ol' horse pills twice a day for a week and rather than chasing her around the apartment, dropping the pill down her…

Painter Takes Pet Portraits To A Whole New Level

Painter Valerie Leonard is the Annie Leibovitz of pet portraits—without the mounting debt and camera, that is. Valerie's "process" is an insanely involved one: She devotes days to each portrait, studies images of a particular animal, researches traits and characteristics of specific breeds. Then, she researches classic artists for the most fitting painting, using…

Micro-Piglets: The Cutest Pet, Ever

These adorable little micro-piglets are bred to stay as tiny as possible for their entire lives. They are the newest pet of choice in England because they're insanely cute, very affectionate, and as low-maintenance as cats. I want 20 of them. In my one-bedroom apartment. And no, I won't name them all Wilbur. […

They Call Me The Crazy Cat Lady

I admit it: I'm about four whiskers shy of being a full-on crazy cat lady. I have two cats of my own and would happily adopt more if my poor husband didn't have mild allergies. I even promised in my wedding vows that I'd never bring home a third kitten, but that doesn't stop me…

Is That A Parrot Or Aubrey O’Day’s Dog?

Apparently, Aubrey O'Day is a big fan of using her doggie Ginger as an accessory. She's moved on from cutesy costumes, and is now all about dying her pup's fur wild colors. "[Ginger] likes to have looks," O'Day says. "It actually seems like such a taboo weird thing, but if you research online, you…

The PooTrap Embarrasses Dogs, But Makes Owner’s Life Easier

Some folks are too fashionable to clean up after their dogs, even if they use stylish Poupou Royal bags. So we're sure the PooTrap will be on everyone's shopping wish list.
