We believe that cats deserve to be treated humanely, nurtured and spoiled rotten! In return, they charm us, delight us, and love us, especially on the hard days. Our passion is to promote responsible pet adoption. 20% of all proceeds from our merchandise sales are donated to the select charities featured below.

Our Story
Meiko & Ginger Photoshoot 2105 Christmas.jpg

Bug and Meiko are real cats who are livin' large in Nashville, Tennessee. Bug (short for Ginger Bug) is a mischievous gray Tabby with a heart of gold, while Meiko is a beautiful, sweet, and mellow Japanese Bobtail. They adopted their humans on the same day in 2015 and have grown up together. Although completely different from each other, they are best of friends.

Our Story

As musicians, singers, and songwriters, we are grateful to be a part of the tapestry that makes up the rich and diverse music community in Nashville, Tennessee.


Bug and Meiko rescued us in 2015. During the pandemic, they were our saving grace – lifting our spirits and providing much-needed entertainment…so much that we were inspired to create a web series on YouTube which was a silly "sitcom" depicting our futile attempts at capturing their antics. As we learned the hard way:




It was a slippery slope, as we were then moved to launch a brand to celebrate the joy of cat adoption! Our website is intended to be a portal for cat-related entertainment and to provide an opportunity for cat lovers to connect and share rescue stories. Our branded merchandise allows us to make a difference by donating a portion of sales proceeds to select cat rescues and charities.


Welcome to our whimsical world of furry fun! We hope you will engage with us, share your adoption stories, and help us further the mission of
