2022 SUMMER SUPPLEMENT

703 West Housatonic Street


MICHAEL & SHAKIRA They’re a class act. When Shakira pranced into his life, Michael had no idea she would become his muse, his amore, his full-time job, and his guiding light. FORMAL NAME : Shakira Bunny AGE : 13 BREED : Undisclosed for federal security reasons. OCCUPATION : Honestly, Shakira has never been called back for a second interview. ORIGIN STORY : “A door just appeared and this white, wet cottonball was presented to me. It was love immediately.” NICKNAMES : Bunny, Bun, Amore, Honey Bunny, Mama, Kiss Kiss CATNIP STYLE : Shakira gets really still and quiet when she’s on the nip. She’s no shallow party girl; she’s introspective and as composed as ever, always trying to improve herself spiritually. THE LESSON : Michael has learned from Shakira that “It’s best to hide under the couch and observe new situations for a couple of weeks before jumping into the mix.”

SHARAE & LIZ LEMON

TOP SECRET: SHE IS MY FAVORITE CAT.”

These two have been in cahoots with the criminal underworld, working toward total world domination, for years. And they just might be closer than you think! FORMAL NAME : Lizard Lemon AGE : 8 BREED : Bartender. OCCUPATION : Runs a speakeasy in the bathroom. WAIT, WHAT ? It’s true. Dancing cat shows, flappers, and bootleg liquor galore. NICKNAMES : Liz, Lemonade, Sassmaster, Budding Entrepreneur, Criminal Mastermind OTHER CATS IN HOUSEHOLD : Phineas and Olaf, but who gives a shit about them? CATNIP STYLE : Wall-bouncer. QUOTE : “Just a young entrepreneur trying to find her way in the world.”

QUOTE : “Shakira Bunny is a lifestyle.”

CAT TOYS

It is the dawning of a new era for Blue Q. An era in which we make ridiculous-but-useful things for not just humans, but their animals as well. To create Blue Q Catnip Cat Toys, we fill 100% cotton pouches with organic leaf-cut (fancy) catnip, and screen print some feline silliness on the surface. Humans get a kick out of the outsides. Cats get a hit of craziness from the insides.
