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.

    This sounds amazing. I have an elderly cat that has started to have a few accidents around the house, and this would help with the lingering odor.

    Susan B

    I could sure use this. Between my two babies and fosters it would come in handy.

  4. 404

    I would just love to win for my 2 cats i adopted from a shelter.

  5. 405

    Would love to try it out!

  6. 406

    2 cats and a small apartment… we could use this :)

    I have 4 indoor kitties and my poor condo could really use some of this stuff!! :O)

  8. 408

    I have used this product before and it really works. I would love to win this to help with the foster kittens, cats and my own cats

  9. 409

    Lots of cool things at this event. Would end up treating my cats far too much. Really like the look of the Hepper Nom Nom dishes. The Zero Odor stuff looks fantastic. Probably much better than the litter deodorant I’m using at the minute for my smelly two (especially Felix he seems to leave the most toxic deposits and half the time doesn’t cover them up!).

  10. 410

    What a fun post with all the new products!

    Peeve and I would love to win this!

  11. 411

    Fabulous! (she said straightening up from scooping the box….)
    Thanks for the low down. So many new companies to check out (and blogs too!)

  12. 412

    I would definitely be interested in trying these products! One of my boys is pretty stinky!!

  13. 413

    What a wonderful product! I’d love to have some!

    This sounds wonderful. House full of cats and dogs and they certainly do cause some odors.

    Bettina Lemmon

    Would love to try zero odor – hope I win – sounds like an amazing product

  17. 417

    I would love to try this product!!

    mary anne

    yes please!

  22. 422

    I could really use this great product with my 15 babies. It is tough to keep up with the males.

  23. 423

    This would help tremendously. Boy kitties are stinky! :P

  24. 424

    I totally need this for our stinky cat box and geriatric cat.

  25. 425

    My girlfriend has four wonderfully delightful kittahs. Two (brother and sister) were adopted from the Macy’s window in San Francisco several years ago. The third kittah belonged to her mom who passed away two years ago and the fourth kittah joined the family when his original owner was no longer able to care for him.

    I know she wouldn’t have planned to have four cats and I also know that now she wouldn’t have it any other way.

    But the room with the litter box can get a little smelly.

  26. 426

    This would definitely be helpful in my tiny studio that I share with two bengals!

  27. 427

    Our seven kitties would love this kit. Somebody is always having an “accident”.

  28. 428

    We’d love to win!

  29. 429

    It’s great stuff and I’m almost out!

  30. 430
  31. 431

    Oh we definitely need this!

  32. 432

    Me! Me! Please pick me!!!
    We recently adopted a gorgeous kitten, Pixie, and man…..she has some strong #1 and #2 odor!!! Our resident cat, Jasmin, has never been this smelly!!
    Needless to say this would help me a ton (especially cause her safe space is the bathroom in my room :x ) I hope I’m the lucky winner of one of these; fingers and toes crossed!!!

  33. 433

    My kitty would love to win!

    Karen & Skeezix

    Skeezix won the Cat Canoe from Jenna’s Red Rhino, and he has not left it since I brought it home. Thank you, Jenna’s Red Rhino! It’s a hit!

  38. 438
    Terry Blinkenberg

    Sounds like a great product. My baby Siberians could use some defunkification!

  39. 439

    That looked like SO much fun! One of our kitties recently started spraying so I could definitely use a great product!

  40. 440

    Sounds good. I’d love to try Zero Odor.

  41. 441

    How much fun it would be to have so many cat adorers in 1 place!!
    I would also love to try the Zero Odor product…I have 5 rescued kitties from 13yrs old to 2 yrs old! Their litter does NOT have Zero Odor!! LOL!

  43. 443

    Sounds like something I really need! I have really enjoyed your reports and pictures from the Catification Lounge!

    Awesome stuff in the Catifacation Lounge! Would LOVE to win the Zero Odor Pet system!

  45. 445

    Would love to win this… Even though I scoop the litter boxes twice a day I just can’t seem to get rid of that telltale odor! Maybe this could help.

  46. 446
    Cindy D

    This would be fabulous!!

  47. 447

    I just started using this product and it really works good, not only cleaning the occasional out of the box “accident” but refreshing the room in general. Would love to get the Pet Multi Kit, thanks.

  48. 448
    Susannah Orr

    This would be perfect to try in our multi cat household!!!

  49. 449

    I’d be so excited to try this!

  50. 450
