Pet Friendly Ratings

Cat Friendly Apts

Tulsa ranked #94 out of 200 cities in cat-friendliness, with 46% of apartments allowing cats

Oklahoma City ranked #105 out of 200 cities in cat-friendliness, with 43% of apartments allowing cats

Cities in the Houston and Dallas metros did particularly well, with the Woodlands claiming the top spot overall – 100% of apartments we surveyed in the Woodlands allow cats!

Cities in New York and Florida appear to be particularly unwelcoming to our feline friends – Miami (15%), New York (14%), and the Bronx (10%) were near the bottom of our list.

The best states for renters with cats are South Dakota and Minnesota; worst are Hawaii, New York, and West Virginia.

 You can access the full data at this link. We also have data on which cities and states have the highest concentration of pet owners, and will release that soon.

Catsy, an app for your cat!

posted August 27th, 2015 by

Louisville, Colo., USA (27 August 2015) — Spastic Muffin, LLC is happy to announce the launch of Catsy, a new cat toy mobile app on the Apple App Store. This cat toy app allows customization and sharing with others: New games can be created and sent to others via email. We made this app because one of our cats really liked another Apple game app, but that app seemed too complicated, kept asking you (or your cat!) to make purchases, and didn’t let you customize or share. Catsy is simple to use, and it is free.

Catsy animates an “Ugly Duckling” on the screen of an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch (YouTube videos linked at Your cat paws at the screen and when they hit the Ugly Duckling, the app makes a bird or cat sound. Humans use authoring mode to create new games, and share games with others via email. Catsy makes it easy to keep the screen locked with Apple Guided Access (see help in authoring mode), so your kitty can play without Tweeting or posting to Facebook!

Catsy can be downloaded from the Apple App store using this link:
