Interview with My3Cats, December 15th, 2009
Hosted by: Madi, The Cat
MADI: Hello, and thanks for meeting me at the Kritter Koffeehouse. I am very excited to be speaking with you today and greatly appreciate your time. Before we get started, I just want to point out that just like everything associated with the Kritter Kommunity, Kritters That Twitter is specifically designed for Animals and Animal Lovers. The Kritter Koffeehouse is open daily and serves beverages and snacks for both Animals and Hoomans. That being said, I see you are an Animal…..could I offer you a bowl of milk or water? Some Catnip before we get started?
MY3CATS: Thanks, Mr. Madi. My name is Bogey, I’m the official spokes-purrson of MyThreeCats.com. I’m so glad to be here! I already have a lot of fresh catnip, but thanks for the offer.
MADI: Lets jump in and get started; we are eager to learn more about you! Firstly, what exactly is My3Cats?
MY3CATS: MyThreeCats.com is an internet based retailer of quality, innovative cat accessories and products for cats like me, and also unique gifts and accessories for cat lovers. Can you believe we carry some great cat furniture called Cat Clouds where cats can exercise and literally “catapult” through the air? We’re especially proud of our wide selection of cat furniture; cat toys; scratching and behavior products; beds;collars; litter boxes and many other great iteMr. We’re really getting into “green” as well. Mom is trying to select green products for the well being of our cat customers and for the environment, like our Eco-friendly cat furniture and cat beds.
My Mom’s name is Carolyn. She’s a co-owner of MyThreeCats.com and has been in business for 11 years. We started out as a retail shop based in Pittsburgh, PA called My Three Cats & Co., Inc. I started the very first day at the shop with Mom, where I became very popular. A few years later, I decided to continue my role as Spokes-purrson at MyThreeCats.com. I get a lot of fan mail. For more information, go to Ask Bogey or About Us on our website.
MADI: How did you come up with the name My3Cats? Do you have pets?
MY3Cats: Over the years, many cats have proudly owned my Mom, but she now has 3 cats, and I’m one of them. She created the name My Three Cats since there are many multiple cat households today and they can easily identify with our name. She always liked the name of the vintage TV program, My Three Sons, so that’s how we became MyThreeCats.com!
MADI: Tell us about how you currently use social media…. Facebook, Twitter, Blogs
MY3Cats: Well, Mr. Madi, we use all three, including our very own Youtube site where we have lots of favorite cat videos posted. You should really check out our blog, BogeysBlogSphere.

Finally, you can see our cool rotating ads on Catchannel.com on the product and breed pages of that site. You can find us and our great products at www.MyThreeCats.com.
MADI: My sister Abi and I see you on Facebook regularly. What do you like most about Facebook and how do you find it valuable?
MY 3 CATS: We like chatting with the many, many cat lovers from all over the world, and love to explore their pages as well. It’s just a great community of people with a common interest, we all love cats! I especially enjoy seeing the cat pictures they share. We’re always interested in hearing from our readers about how they like our products and any cool new products they want to share.
MADI: We at Kritters That Twitter want to make sure we offer solutions and add value to the lives of Animals and Animal Lovers through our blog. This interview was extremely helpful in providing animals a fun place to shop for specialty items.
MY3CATS: Mom and I are thrilled to be interviewed by you, Mr. Madi. We really like Kwitters that Twitter and will be sure to tell our cat loving customers about you!!!
