Star is not squared to GO PURPLE

Today is Spirit Day (October 20). Star is wearing purple today to take a stand against bullying, and to show support for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth. 

Spirit Day was started in 2010 by teenager Brittany McMillan as a response to the young people who had taken their own lives. Please visit to learn more about #spiritday, and for more details.

In case you missed the Squaredy Cats on WPIX :)

 We were waiting as patiently as we could since we did this interview with Francesca Maxime around a month ago. It was finally produced, and aired on October 13 on the WPIX channel morning news Dunkin Donuts Studio On The Run segment.

Francesca and her production team made us feel very comfortable on the set, and Elaine did an amazing job explaining what Squaredy Cats are all about. We couldn't have been happier with how it turned out :)
They even flashed our Squaredy Cats Facebook page across the screen.

Francesca Maxime with Elaine de la Mata and Kurt Marquart, the inventors and designers of Squaredy Cats.

It seems everyone there had fun with the new plush line that's out now, and available at Toys R Us. Linda Church held, Tiger Lily, and Frances Rivera and Sukanya Krishnan really had a ball with a few others. Below you'll find a link to the broadcast piece, but directly below that check out what else we found. Someone posted a YouTube link of the team goofing off with the cats on the set, but we think it was terrific! How great that they had so much fun with our fun-loving toys.

Thank you to everyone at the WPIX Channel 11 Morning News in New York!

Here's a link to the embedded video below.


And here's the YouTube video of the fun banter.

A Pink Kitty blog review

We'd like to take a minute to recommend a great blog called A Pink Kitty. Arianna posted about what she thinks of Squaredy Cats, and we couldn't be happier with what she wrote :)
