  1. Hi Chris,

    Cole reminds me of my black cat Toothless. Just wondering if Cole & Marmalade are both spayed? Just brought Toothless for spaying yesterday & she’s sort of moody now & I think she’s in pain:(

    Sending love from Malaysia,

  2. Hi, this isn’t really much of a question, but will you consider making wallpapers of the boys in the future? I’m sure I’m not the only that wants those two as their desktop background.

  3. how do i order a mug that your customers mention in there faqs all i can get into are calendars Which i have purchased and tshirts

  4. Hi, thank for uploading all the lovely videos of Cole n Marm. They make my day … When I’m not watching my own two πŸ™‚ I was wondering how you keep Cole’s fur so sleek and shiny! I feed my to Iam and they get wet food every few days. One of my cats we believe is a Norwegian forest cat .. He was found in a neighbours garage when he was about 4weeks old. I have tried different food and different cat shampoos but his fur stay extremely dry n strawy. Any tips you have would be appreciated!! Thank you so much again for sharing you Fur-children with the world! Xx

    1. Hello, thanks fur watching, glad you enjoy our vids … We feed them a 95% wet food diet and just give them dry food as treats, we also give them coconut oil which si very good for them, I think if you shampoo your cat they lose a lot of their natural oils etc… we never bathe Cole and Marm

  5. Hi Chris, thank you so much for sharing those amazing videos of Marmalade and Cole. I have been a big fan. I am considering taking in a kitten to accompany my first cat. Just wondering if Marmalade and Cole are using a same litter box? if they are using a same one, how did you train them to do so? Thank you in advance for answering these questions!

    1. Hey Sharon, you’re more than welcome πŸ™‚ … I definitely think two cats is better than one, yep they both use one extra large litter box that is cleaned daily, no training needed they just use the same box naturally, we did have two at one point though…

  6. Hello there! I’ve been into your Youtube channel for a couple of days, I just find out about it because I adopted an adorable adult cat & I need some proper knowledge. It’s the first time I’ll be having a pet cat. So here’s really the situation. The cat was owned by a married couple from France who gladly loves to travel a lot. Back when the they’re travelling in Egypt they saw this feral Cat, which I guess is 1 month old by that time. Fast forward, they’ve been with this Cat for 2 years and couple of months now. They went in my country, Philippines and unfortunately they need to leave and find someone who’ll be willing to adopt the Cat. The moment I saw the Cat, I knew I wanted it. So I contacted them in just a few minutes after seeing their social media post. The day came and I met the Cat and the owner, the owner tells me about the background of the Cat their ways and all. Gladly, I was lucky that the owner is really amazing and patient. I knew its tough for them to leave their baby, but they need to. I let the cat stayed for awhile in my friend’s place because my mom wants to finish first the upper part of our house where the cat can stay. My friend’s brother pulled her out the cage immediately and made the cat really frightened so she bit him and then run away to hide. 1 day passed and I was observing the Cat. It was hiding under the Couch the whole time and doesn’t want to be touched. I felt really sorry for the Cat to feel that way, and it’s bothering me that the new environment would add up on her feelings. I somehow feel guilty of letting her stay there for awhile because my friend’s family beliefs about pets, which I found really not helping out the cat’s new place adjustments. She got scared of what they’re doing. But I’m doing my best to visit as much as possible so the Cat would recognize me and feel that it’s going to be fine. I just wanted to know if is there any reminder I would need to consider on gaining my new pet’s trust? and how can she feel okay again with her new family… Thank you so much.

    1. Sorry to hear that your friend’s brother pulled her out of the cage immediately, it’s important to give them space and a quiet area and let them explore when they feel like it…. offer her lots of hiding spaces and make sure all human interactions are positive, so playtime, treats and food πŸ™‚

  7. How To Make a Cat Proof Christmas Tree! GREAT video love it from way across the ‘ppnd’ thank you.
    ps/loved the backing track, what is it?

  8. Hi! I ordered the UK version of the Cole and Marm calendar, as a Christmas gift for my nan, she loves them even more then I do! But I’ve had huge problems with UPS delivering it and also can’t get in touch with anyone from Lulu.com.
    Is there anyone else I can contact for help?

    Thank you!

      1. Thanks Chris, managed to get it sorted and it arrived just in time!
        Hope you all had a lovely Christmas! 😊

  9. As the owner of another super furry long haired black kitty, I have a “crappy” question for you. I’m just going to go right ahead and bluntly ask it. Does Cole ever get poop stuck/smeared to his fur after he uses the litter box? I feel like I am constantly having this issue with my little lady and am not sure the best way to go about cleaning her up as she loathes and detests water and I fear the safety of my arms during the process. I have recently been using flushable wipes on her rear end area but I’m nervous those maybe aren’t okay since they’re made for humans and she then licks the area. Any insight? Thanks fellow cat lover!

    1. Hey Christina, I had to laugh, it’s a “crappy” question but had to be asked and the answer is yes, Cole with his long fur does get poop stuck back there from time to time…. We recently switched to a larger, wider litter box and that seems to have helped a lot so the boy snow have more room to maneuver inside…. I’d also suggest getting pet specific wipes just in case, we use them and maybe even trim the fur back there too, we do that sometimes, good luck! πŸ™‚

  10. Chris

    my cat Abby has been troubling me as she meows whenever i am out of the house she meows and meows and she scratches a lot can u give me any tips

    greetings from india

  11. Hey Chris! Do you have any idea for a nice toy for my cats to play with, When I’m not home? The used to grab hair ties, and play with them, But I was terrified that they would eat them! πŸ™‚

  12. Greetings from Saskatchewan, Canada! I LOVE all the Cole and Marmalade videos. They always provide a good laugh! I was curious as to how Marm’s eye is doing? Hope it is better now. We have had a mild winter; however, yesterday was the start of some extremely cold weather. Not to worry though, all the Purrrrkids are toasty warm inside (they are indoor cats, not allowed outside).
    All our purrrkids, except 2, are rescue cats and are black! We did have a head count of 9, but
    2 went to the Rainbow Bridge this past year. Of our current 7 kittehs, 2 are 10-month old Maine Coon cats (1 girl Tuxedo, and one boy ginger-apricot & white). They “help” with the computer when I am watching C&M videos!
    Must run – the crew is getting restless …. of course, it is time for more food!
    Love from myself and the Purrrkids (Taz, Bella, Scooter, Stinger, Star, Indy and Smitty)!

  13. Hi Chris, I was sick the past few weeks and watching the videos of Cole and Marmalade really cheered me up when I was stuck in bed and getting cabin fever. I have a question…in your ending credits you feature a really cute clip of someone playing “tickle tickle” with a black kitten (I’m assuming it’s Cole). Where can I find the original video? I’d love to see it. Thanks and please keep making videos! Chris

  14. Hi Chris,
    we’ve just seen the Q-Tip video.
    Is it possible to buy the Q-Tip toy?
    Thank you for all these wonderful videos and hacks.

  15. Hey there…love your videos and pics! I was just wondering what type of cancer did Marm have and what were his symptoms prior to diagnosis. I have a young fellow who has been off for some time and the vets keep telling me it is unlikely to be cancer in such a young cat. Your info could shed some light.
    Keep up the awesome posts….you bring joy to many people!

    1. Hey Catherine, sorry to hear that your cat isn’t feeling too well…. It’s really difficult to notice if your cat is sick because they’re so good at hiding their symptoms, with Marm he had always been a bit of a pucker, he’d always eat too fast and vomit the food up once a week at least, but we noticed he was doing it more frequently and then a few times he did it a long time after eating so we knew something was wrong and that’s when the vets found the tumor. Did you do a scan on your cat?

  16. Hi Chris,
    I just rescued a cat 3 month ago which was thrown to the streets with saying “She is not a kitten-cute anymore.” as an excuse. She is 2 years old and I love her so much, I named her Freya because she looks like a Norwegian Cat. Anyways she got used to us quickly. We had some issues with her going to the street door and meow-cry to go out but with a lot of search on the internet my fiance and I made a lot of difference in our home so she would find our home more interesting than the street. Now we are good. She isn’t going to the door and cry anymore. She trust us more even she gives cat-love to us more. The problem is I always thought two cats would be better. So I was looking for a kitten adoption because I thought my beautiful Freya would be happy to have a cat friend. One of my friends has a cat also and she didn’t listen to me about getting her cat sterilized and breed the cat with some other cat and tells me if I can take 2 of her kittens because she can’t trust anyone about it, now. What can I do? Would it be bad to take two kittens to our home? Will my Freya get angry and sad about it? Is 3 cats in one house a bad idea? (Sorry for the long information and please excuse my bad English. ) Thank you.

  17. Hi Chris. I must admit I am beyond jealous of your relationship with your two sweet cats. I only have one cat, her name is Minnie. My mother found her on a construction site. I feel really awful but I’d never in my entire life cared for a cat so I didn’t really know what to do. At the time we had a dog that we’d had for at least 5 years and he had rule over the entire house so I kept Minnie in my room with me and I feel so awful because I think I sort of scarred her because of this. Our original pup unfortunately passed away a few years ago and we adopted another one but Minnie is kind of hostile with any other animal in the house. After about a year I decided I wanted her to roam the house freely and that didn’t go over smoothly. At first she seemed terrified of everything, but eventually she settled into it. All of that was almost 10 years ago. To this day Minnie seems to get startled by the slightest noise and she doesn’t seem to “like” anyone but me. I watched your video on how cats show love and that helped me some. She does almost all of those things with me and over the years has come to do some of them with other people as well. My biggest concern at this point is her interactions with the dog, I would love for them to get along and I want to know how to help that. Minnie “wags” her tail at the dog a lot. It sort of quickly smacks back and forth and I take that as a bad sign because almost immediately following she attacks the dog, who is named Lucy by the way. She does the head butt thing with Lucy and presents her butt and rubs her which looks sweet but then will turn around and scratch her. Lucy is huge compared to Minnie, she is a lab shepherd mix. And since I’ve never had a cat before I didn’t actually know this but Minnie is truly mini, she’s like a miniature version of a cat. Any helpful tips on how to help Minnie out? I don’t know if the goal is to help her feel calmer and safer or what but any help is definitely appreciated. I want Minnie to be friendly with everyone, especially Lucy, and I want interactions with her to be pleasant for all. Thanks so much for any help you can provide Chris!

    1. Hey Rachel, yeah sounds like Minnie is not a big fan of Lucy, you may want to research natural sprays online that can help calm cats in their environment, it can take a lot of time for mature cats to change…

  18. Hello! I’ve seen your videos on trapping fixing and releasing cats.
    That’s what I’m trying to do. I know you’re not an official or anything but may I ask some advice?

    We’ve been getting cats fixed and releasing them in our area. So far we’ve had 4 fixed and released.
    It’s hard for us to have every cat done (it can become expensive) so we’ve been trying to make cats friendly first.
    Anyway, our neighbors are very unhelpful.

    They keep trapping them and taking them to the local kill shelter. These are not only cats we are trying to save up to fix, but cats we have already had fixed! We have to pay 25 dollars to have them released. Money we’re saving to have more fixed.

    Do you know what I can do about these neighbors? Thing is we don’t know which ones it is, however all but two of our neighbors dislike cats.
    Any advice on what to do when your neighbors are anti cat but you’re trying to save them?

    It hurts my heart that we’ve had so many cats we’ve made friendly (before we could afford to have them fixed) be purged by mean neighbors.

    1. Man, that sucks! Thanks so much for taking the time to try and help these cats and pay for it out of your own pockets! I’m not sure there is much you can do, is there any local rescue groups you can talk to and get some advice…?

  19. Hello boys
    Is Marm the kitten advertising the catnip ‘cosmic catnip’ on Amazon.co.uk

    Seriously looks like him or he has a dobbleganger!

    Love the new video! Xx

  20. After watching Cole & Marm and all the joy they bring I have decided to foster cats needing a home (because of my unpredictable job I can’t have a cat full time) my first foster cat is a mum and kittens and they will stay with me until they are 8 weeks old and I will be at home to assist mum is caring for her little ones and playing with them helping to socialise them so they’re ready for their forever homes. I cannot wait, I’m so excited.

    Thank you for all your videos and how to help the cats in the community.
