 Friday Fill-Ins (Week #47) & KittyRoo Sweatshirt Review and Giveaway



I am combining our fill-ins (hosted by Annie from McGuffy’s Reader and Ellen of 15 And Meowing) today with a review and a giveaway. My completions are in teal italics. This is a blog hop. To join, go to Annie’s blog.

If you aren’t interested in my completions, skip to the second half of the post.

1. The first thing I think about in the morning is unlocking the cat door so the kitties can go out on the catio.

2. The last thing I think about before sleep is who needs my prayers, prior to saying them.

3. I am looking forward to the upcoming BlogPaws Conference. If you’d like to attend, it is not too late to register. The conference is being held in Myrtle Beach, SC, from May 18 – 20.

4. I am so pleased I got to try out, review and give away a KittyRoo sweatshirt.

The kitties and I are fortunate to have the opportunity to review a variety of products. Most are quite good and receive a positive review from us. For me, however, the KittyRoo sweatshirt tops the list of my favorites. If you are a lover of kitties, whether you have any or not, this is a must have. Not only is it cute with cat ears on the hood, but it is also as comfy as your jammies and super warm. With our crazy spring weather and me being sick for a month, I’ve worn it almost every day.

But there’s more to the KittyRoo than human comfort. The KittyRoo has a built-in snuggle pouch. The KittyRoo sweatshirt allows you to hold, and cuddle your pet in the pouch while you do other things. The ideal use for the KittyRoo is to offer a feeling of security to new kittens and puppies with which you are trying to bond. It also is perfect for those fostering.

Of course, most of Kitties Blue are too big to fit in the pouch, and the ones that aren’t were not excited about having their photo taken. Though she was less than cooperative, Astrid let her dad take some photos of her in the pouch.

Additional KittyRoo specifics:
  • Built-in pouch is removable for ease in cleaning
  • Extra-long drawstrings with pom-pom tips for kitties’ amusement. Calista Jo and Lily Olivia particularly enjoy sitting in my lap and playing with these.
  • Super-soft fleece material

The KittyRoo sweatshirt is available in sizes M-XXL. I have the medium and it is very roomy. It retails for $29.99 plus shipping and handling and can be ordered from the KittyRoo website (link above). An online exclusive offer to purchase a second KittyRoo for an additional $19.99 is available as well. You can find much better photos than ours on the web-site.

For an opportunity to win your very own KittyRoo sweatshirt, leave a comment on this post prior to Thursday, April 6, at 5 p.m. ET. Winner will be selected using and announced the following day.

Disclosure: Kitties Blue received the KittyRoo Sweatshirt free of charge to test and review. We were not financially compensated for this post nor told what to write. The opinions are completely those of Kitties Blue and their human based on our experiences.

I love the built in poms. What a great idea!

Katie Isabella April 5, 2017 at 9:15 pm

OH! I love this to the moon and back and back again! LOVE it! The ears!!!!

Kitty Cat Chronicles April 5, 2017 at 6:12 pm

Interesting! I’ve seen these online and have wondered about them. I thought for sure Astrid would have liked the pouch, since she is the bag lady afterall! I don’t know that anyone here would like the pouch either, except Jubilee & Sydney. And MAYBE Sophie. Looks warm and snuggly though!

This would be wonderful for keeping my perpetually cold and easily upset Tortie, Tallulah, warm and happy. 🙂

David L Eakins April 2, 2017 at 8:48 pm

My cat would love this!

Jean Dion April 2, 2017 at 8:07 pm

Oh, man. This would have been the perfect thing to have when I was fostering semi-feral black beauty kitty Eartha Kitt this fall. She needed to be close, and I still needed to get things done. She would have loved this!

I would love to win one not only for our kitty but our little dog Dexter as well. It started showing up in my facebook feed a few months ago and I’ve been so tempted!

We and petcretary have nevfur seen anything like that! Wow! We would love to have a chance to win one. Then the rest of the peeps in petcretary’s furmily will know she is more kitty crazy than they thought, MOL!!

Linda Szymoniak April 2, 2017 at 1:45 am

Well, while today is my birthday, I think I’d have to give it to one of my daughters if I win. My oldest wore cat ears everywhere until she was starting college. All three of my girls are cat lovers and would love this sweatshirt. Now to figure out which one to give it to. Problem solved, I’ll just keep it myself. LOL!

I enjoyed reading your answers. I do wonder if the kitties want to go on the catio before breakfast.

That sweatshirt looks so cute, warm and cozy!

These sweatshirts are pawsome! Manna is always climbing into my robe to cuddle with me. I know that she would love it if I wore one of these sweatshirts. 🙂 It looks really cute on you!

Cathy Keisha March 31, 2017 at 10:46 pm

Maybe we will build a catio when we get up north. I look forward to hearing about the blog Paws conference. Fun. That KittyRoo is something these guys would mostly love. Chloe Jo has to be held constantly. She is my CuddleBug. George and Maggie like to be covered up. What a cool thing! Cute pictures, too! I am glad you got the package and like it. HUGS.

This sweatshirt looks like the best invention since sliced bread! I can’t think of anything I’d enjoy more. Bear doesn’t mind being cuddled like that … but he’s probably too big for the pocket 🙂

Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, I always enjoy your answers. I had the same thing for #2, praying is so important. I wish I was going to the conference, I would love to meet you. Great giveaway, I was just telling Joanie yesterday that I need a pouch to carry her everywhere because she always wants to be on my lap or with me 🙂

Is BlogPaws at Myrtle Beach each year? I’d like to go one of these days when we’re able to finally take a vacation again! What a clever idea that Kittyroo sweatshirt is. I’ve got some kitties I just know would love snuggling in it! Fingers crossed! 🙂

This is such a neat sweatshirt! While the only one that likes to be held wouldn’t fit in the pounce, I’m sure she would love to lay on in and play!

The Florida Furkids March 31, 2017 at 8:41 am

We liked your Fill-Ins! We also like that sweatshirt…..Mom hear would have lived in it during our cold snap too!
