You will know by now, dear reader, that King Duke’s is a place for dogs. Large dogs, small dogs, cool dogs, shy dogs, senior dogs, puppies; we love them all. But you know what else we love? CATS! And we think it’s time we showed them just how much. Sure, cats are known for their fierce independence, and, er, occasional fierce defense of their territory, but we feel no such defensiveness: we are here for the cats and we are not afraid to say it. So it is with great pride that we present our first annual feline fȇte, henceforth to be known as the King Duke’s Catapalooza! Step this way… 

Like all good parties, we’ll start with refreshments. We’ve yet to meet a cat who isn’t discerning about what she eats, so it is with considerable relish that we recommend Fromm Four Star Cat Food’s delicious Game Bird variety. This grain-free entrée is a blend of duck, turkey, quail, pheasant, with Wisconsin cheese, and an assortment of fresh fruits & vegetables. Purrfection, if we say so ourselves. Perhaps your cat prefers a raw diet? In which case, how about Northwest Naturals Freeze-dried Cat Nibbles, made from the same meats found at the finest natural food stores, simply chopped, then quick- frozen. Their recipes are equally simple: chicken and turkey varieties use muscle meat, organ meat, and natural raw ground bone with no added fruits or vegetables - a carnivore’s delight.

In common with her canine and human friends, once fed, a cat’s thoughts may turn to rest; even the most party-forward among us needs a disco nap. There is no finer way to relax than atop the Creative Solutions Heated Pet Pad. This ingenious piece of kit comes in two sizes and can be used alone or inside your cat’s bed to create a warm and cozy cushion; buy it now or regret it come winter!

Once rested, we imagine your cat will be looking to raise his or her accessories game; if so, we have just the thing. Our friends at Yellow Dog Design have upped their feline bona fides with a range of collars and harnesses, including these fabulous bandana Cat Collars and we are in love. Choose from one of five colors, or pick a seasonal design, and prepare for catcalls (sorry, we couldn’t resist). 

Now that we have the essentials covered, our thoughts turn to party games. A playful cat is a happy cat, and we have the best toys in the business. Allow us to share a few of our favorites! Coming in hot is this super-fun organic catnip sausage from our friends at Hot Cat. This 16-inch denim “sausage” toy is stuffed solid with aromatic, certified organic catnip herb, so it can rouse the biggest, baddest, and oldest cats into a kitten-like playfulness. Made of the sturdiest denim, even the toughest cat can really sink her teeth - and claws - into it and wrestle fiercely while you hold the other end without getting mauled. Bonus! In keeping with the party theme, how about this Meowijuana Get Lit Birthday Cake? There’s no better way to celebrate your cat's birthday or adoption day than to, er, get lit, and the high-grade, all-natural Meowijuana* in this refillable, ultra-soft catnip toy will satisfy your cat's cravings in grand style. This toy was made for pawtiers! Finally, a sure-fire feline fan favorite is this Kong Interactive Laser Cat Toy, made to engage even the cleverest of cats; we think you’ll love it as much as your pet does. 

All good parties must come to an end, but before we go, we want to offer our kitty crew a few treats to say thanks for stopping by. Every cat we know goes crazy for these Northwest Naturals freeze-dried treats which come in 11 single-ingredient varieties, so there is truly something tasty and nutritious for even the fussiest feline. Dogs love them too, but judging from the look on Nelson’s face, that is totally irrelevant. Sorry, Nelson, these ones are ALL FOR YOU. 

And on that slightly scary note, we're off for a much-needed catnap. We'll be sleeping with one eye open just in case.😳😾😹

*Meowijuana is made from 100% organic catnip grown in Washington State and California. Groovy, baby.

As a rule, we are National Day enthusiasts regardless of the occasion. But every once in a while a National Day comes about that fills us with the joy and enthusiasm of 100 puppies which is an apt metaphor since that day is in fact today: National Puppy Day! As you can imagine, the level of excitement at KDHQ is turned up to 11, and accordingly we’ve been gathering not only a selection of puppy merch at 10% off this weekend, March 23rd & 24th, with code PUPPYLOVE24, but also some super fun puppy facts that prove that alongside National Kitten Day (July 10th, mark your calendars!), this is the best day of all the days.

There are various means by which eras are defined: the invention of the wheel, the start of the Renaissance, and above all, Taylor Swift albums, tours - so much so the current one is literally named Eras - and romantic partners. Basically, enough things change enough and that means we're in a new phase. Having said that, we have been thinking recently of a contrast: animals and pets are consistently dominant in pop culture - no changes please and thank you - and every single era celebrates and records them. In our current human-centric age, this seems at first, ahem, glance odd, but as we have previously noted, there are 6.5 BILLION cat pictures on the internet which is only slight fewer than the number of selfies on Kylie Jenner's phone (7 billion, allegedly). In our view, this is as it should be, but it set us thinking: why? Why are animals more enduring across cultures, eras, continents, and content than anything else? Step this way...
