What are trendy cat people? People who love cats, and want products for their home and their cat that express their own sense of style and design which celebrates their love of felines. No one knows this better than Kate Benjamin.
In 2007, Kate Benjamin was searching for stylish products for her own cats. She couldn’t find a comprehensive source on the topic, so she started blogging at Moderncat.net, gathering her finds for design-conscious cat people. Over the years, the design-loving cat community grew and Kate became known as the go-to source for anything related to cats and design. In 2009, Kate launched her own line of handmade cat products under the name Moderncat Studio. The high-quality beds, scratchers, and toys have been making cats happy around the world ever since.
In 2013, Kate launched Hauspanther, an online magazine bringing all of her passions together and taking everything to a new level. Kate lives in Phoenix, Arizona with her eleven fabulous felines, plus a twelfth furry family member who resides at the Hauspanther design studio in downtown Phoenix.
Hauspanther showcases products from many different manufacturers that include cat furniture, toys, trees, collectables, and home decor, and sometimes previews new products before they are even available to the consumer.
Their Gear Guide section catalogs many different products with up close photos and detailed product information for easy reference and is regularly updated.
Hauspanther has a mission is to spread the word about how good design can enhance the way we live with cats, improving our lives and the lives of our beloved feline companions. By paying attention to the design of objects and environments, we can create living spaces that accommodate the natural instincts of cats – keeping them happy, healthy and well behaved – without compromising our own sense of style and comfort.
Kate will be on the Pet Radio Show June 22, 2013
