Pootie Pad Party on Daily Kos

A group for people who have Pootie Pads -- or who enjoy pootie pictures.
  1. If your holiday gift list includes cat or dog owners, consider giving a Pootie Pad.  These are small quilts containing organic herbs — the best catnip for the kitties and soothing lavender and thyme for dogs.  Fabric choices are found on the Pootie Pad website: see herefor cats and here for dogs.  In addition, we have these three new fabrics (just in) for cats:

    About Pootie Pads:

    Pootie Pads are a product that arose because of the daily Pootie diaries here on Daily Kos — they were designed with the cats of Kossacks in mind.  Made with love by myself and my sister, winglion, they are little quilts filled with human grade, organic catnip (the best we have ever found) from Oregon.  All the fabrics are pre-washed before we use them so the pads are innocent of any toxic sizing or preservatives.  Cats love them!  The pads promote play — and also seem to have a soothing effect on anxious cats (making them the perfect liner for a cat carrier during travel).  Elderly cats love them, too — we think because the catnip eases the aches and pains of older bones and joints.

    Our pads for dogs contain organic lavender and thyme, soothing herbs that may promote calm.

  2. Recently, we have had a number of sales of Pootie Pads bought for cats who are ill or are recovering from a trauma.  You all know about Max who recently had a leg amputated.  Max loves his Pootie Pad!  We also learned about  Bruno who now has to adjust to indoor life only because he lost an eye in the brutal outside world.  The catnip in his Pootie Pad is a big help to him.  But let me introduce you to Linus (pictured above), who is described by his owner as “sweetness in a fur suit”.  Linus is nearing the end stages of kidney failure and his doting owner wants him to be as comfortable as possible in the time remaining.  The pad is working.  Linus is really loving it. 

    It really does our hearts good to learn that Pootie Pads are so helpful when a cat is injured or ill.

  3. It’s The Marti’s birthday today.  How can we do justice to the lovely lady who helps us laugh?  How she multitasks, too!  Every morning she pours the coffee and tea at the New Day Cafe… then she puts down her cafe apron and coffee pot and hurries over to don her tiara as Pootie Princess at the daily Pootie diary.  She is such a fabulous hostess!  We need to give her a party.   Srsly, Marti manages two daily community diaries — islands of fun and friendship in this sea of madness we find ourselves in at present.  We owe her a lot for all the smiles, laughter, and the opportunity to interact with friends and to make new ones.

    So please join in!  Together, let us create a fantasy birthday party for her.

    Tiger Cake for Marti

    Since we are imagining this party, I’ll kick things off with this table laid by Portland’s premier events planning company, Vibrant Table.   Imagine a room filled with beautiful blooms -- because we want it to be gorgeous for Marti.  And since Marti styles herself as L’il Miss Can’t Behave, why not have our fantasy lunch catered by Devil’s Food Catering (also in Portland) — because it will be fun as well as delicious.
