It’s a new year, and it’s time for a new thing. Five years ago, I started gathering my design finds for cat lovers together in a little blog at Moderncat.net. The site grew much bigger and much faster than I ever could have imagined and I am so lucky to have such wonderful readers who share my passion for cats and design.
Over the years, I also started some other related ventures: Moderncat Studio, where I work with a team of cat-loving designers to create unique handcrafted cat products, and Moderncat Distribution, which imports and distributes The Cat’s Trapeze in the US and Canada.
It’s now time to bring everything together under one new — and very distinctive — name. I am so pleased to introduce Hauspanther, a new brand created especially for design-conscious cat people.
Hauspanther.com is your go-to source for all things design- and cat-related. It is an online magazine featuring my design finds for cat lovers, along with other news and useful information for living stylishly with cats. Please take a look at the About page for more details.
One feature I’m very excited to share with you is the Hauspanther Gear Guide, which will provide you with a comprehensive way to search for the latest and greatest cat gear. We are still creating the Gear Guide, so check back as more things are added. The Gear Guide will be continuously updated in order to provide you with the most useful information and links.
At Hauspanther.com you will also be able to shop for Hauspanther products, and, for the retailers out there working with Moderncat Distribution, we will be consolidating that portion of the business under one “roof” as well. More details coming soon.

We know that most of our readers enjoy getting updates via email. If you would like to continue to receive my design finds via email YOU WILL NEED TO SIGN-UP TO RECEIVE HAUSPANTHER EMAIL UPDATES. It is quite simple, just click the button below and enter your email address, then check your inbox for a confirmation email, click the link in the email and you will be all set.
If you would like to then unsubscribe from the old Moderncat emails, you may do so by simply clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of one of the old emails.
Of course we will have fabulous giveaways on Hauspanther! In fact, we should have a new giveaway to announce every Monday! Instead of leaving a comment to enter, however, you will instead complete a form, like you did for the 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway. The current giveaway will always be listed on the Hauspanther Giveaway page, so check it out each week to see what’s new. We’ll also be sending out email announcements when we post a new giveaway.
I just want to thank all of you for your support and your friendship over the years. I absolutely love what I do, and I love sharing my passion for cats with all of you. It’s so nice to know there are others out there who feel the same way I do about these amazing little beings and I hope to continue sharing my finds with you for years to come. May 2013 be the year of the Hauspanther!

And just a little reminder, Modern Cat Magazine and it’s associated online content at moderncat.com have absolutely nothing to do with me or moderncat.net.
A big thank you to Robin A.F. Olson of Ultra Maroon Design for her assistance with the new logo!
