If you’ve been following along on the Moderncat Facebook page or Twitter, then you might have seen me posting from the Catification Lounge at the 2012 BlogPaws Pet Blogging and Social Media Conference, held in Salt Lake City last week. The Catification Lounge was a showcase of some of my favorite modern cat products, all on display for attendees to see firsthand. Jackson Galaxy and I put together some “Catification Tips” for creating truly cat-friendly environments, which you will hear more about soon. The Catification Lounge was sponsored by the folks at Zero Odor.

There was another special guest at the conference this year, Moki Fogg, A.K.A. The Wobbly Cat, and his mom Crystal. Moki has a mysterious neurological condition and is undergoing extensive rehabilitation. Moki’s story serves to educate people about special needs pets and what can be done for them. He is an incredible little guy with a huge spirit. It was an honor to meet him!

So what happened to all of the goodies in the lounge at the end of the conference, you ask? Everyone who stopped by the lounge had the chance to fill out an entry form and we did a big drawing at the end to give everything away. All of the larger items in the lounge were donated to local animal shelter, Friends of Animals Utah for their cat room. We will share photos of the finished room as soon as everything is set-up.

I have to thank the BlogPaws team for asking me to be there with the Catification Lounge, and I cannot forget to thank Peter Wolf from Vox Felina and Jill Delzer owner of Ally McPets Pet Sitting and a member of the Jackson Galaxy/Spirit Essences team for all their help in the lounge.

Zero Odor



The Catification Lounge was sponsored by Zero Odor, one of my favorite odor elimination products. They do a live demo with red onions that will knock your socks off! Onions that will make you cry are rendered almost completely odorless after a few sprays with Zero Odor. Very impressive!

We gave away lots of samples of Zero Odor in the lounge, and they don’t want you to feel left out, so they are offering a special prize package to five lucky readers! Five winners will each receive a Pet Multi Kit, including three 16 oz bottles of Zero Odor, one each of their Pet Spray, Litter Spray, and new Pet Stain Remover. The kit sells for $34.95.

To enter to win, please leave a comment on this post. The winner will be chosen in a random drawing and announced on July 2, 2012. One entry per person. This giveaway is limited to addresses in the US.

    Looks like everyone had an amazing time at BlogPaws! I wish I was there! My cat would have a blast. I can definitely see a few things I will be ordering for my cat soon!

    I absolutely LOVE Zero Odor!! I swear by this stuff. It is hands down the best odor eliminator on the planet. My mother in law gave me a bottle a few months ago and I kept it in the bathroom to freshen things up but it ran out. I haven’t been able to find it anywhere near me, and I’m so upset because nothing else even compares. Most things give me a headache, but Zero odor leaves a very clean, fresh barely-noticeable scent that won’t give you a headache. It completely eliminates all odors as if they never even existed. I totally need to win this stuff!

  2. 102

    yes please

    My friend emailed me on Zero Odor right before I received your blog post in my inbox. We share our small apartment with two cats & a pooch. We could certainly use some odor help! Thank you for the opportunity to win and the great cat products you showcase.
