3 Things You Need To Make Your Cat A Star

Cat videos are all the rage these days and everyone is doing it, so why aren’t you? Maybe you are missing the key elements to achieving domination in the cat video market and don’t know where to start.

  1. First and most important is the cat, I will guess you have one, or have access to one if you are reading this. Qualities you should look for include cute, that’s a given as all cats are cute, cooperative (this may be a little harder) and easily amused.           Spinner are you ready for your close up? No.Cat, cute, cat beds, Spinner, Siver Tabby
  2. Second you will need the Cat Video Clapboard by Archie McPhee. Archie, I don’t know who you are but I like the way you think.  “Essential For Every Director of Cat-ography” Selling point for me? It’s a tiny little clapboard!Cat Clapboard, Archie McPhee, Cat videos
  3. To bring your grand plans to life, the How to Make Your Cat an Internet Celebrity (A Guide to Financial Freedom) book by Quirk Books. “how to unlock the secrets of grooming your kitty for success… Packed with practical tips and helpful diagrams…how ordinary housecats can follow in the venerable pawprints of the Internet’s brightest stars.Book, cats, how to make cats, internet, star, celebrityLet me tell you why this book is awesome
  • It’s full cat humor that can be appreciated by anyone
  • It is tailored to just about every cat “type” out there, and if you don’t know your cats type chapter 1 will help you identify it. Spinner I have determined is the “clown”. It will also help you manage and film your cat based on their type
  • Lights, Camera, Action! If you have ever aspired to be a director now is your chance. Learn how to use props including the family dog – no one is left out
  • Valuable skills! Editing, effects, story line and how you can market your cat video
  • Last, how to take advantage of your cats fame, merchandising, product endorsements and my personal favorite “faking your cats death”

There is also advice on how to deal with your cat if they decide to fire you, but lets hope it doesn’t come to that.

All the above, minus the cat, are courtesy of the fabulous Rolo Store and can be purchased in store or on-line.  Cat Video Clap board  $6.95 and How to Make Your Cat an Internet Celebrity $13.95

Just For Cats Internet Video Film Festival! The Cats are Coming!

So I am super excited this festival is coming to Toronto! I remember being extremely envious of those in the US who got to see it first! If you are like me you love cat videos and the stars like Lil Bub, Grumpy Cat, Henri Le Chat Noir Ah! the list goes on!

Temptations along with Canadian Federation of Human Societies or CFHS, and The Walker Art Centre present the Just For Cats Internet Video Festival with the purrfect tag line ” All the Cattiness of the Film Festival, but with Cats“. You get to watch all your favorite cat videos in one sitting and all for a good cause.

Proceeds from the festival will go to benefit Cat Welfare in Canada and will help elevate cat care across the country which is so much needed as cats are still the number one animal in shelters and on the street.

VIP tickets are $60 and includes reserved seating, ticket to the screening; a post-screening cocktail reception; a cat loot bag; meet-and-greet with special cat guests; and general feline love and appreciation.

Regular tickets are $12

What is super cool is the Toronto Human Society will be hosting a red carpet adopt-a-thon prior to the screening, a feline-tastic way to get some deserving kitties a potential home!
