Our Amazon Influencer Page!

Post may contain affiliate links. Full disclosure HERE.

Hi ya, furriends! 

We are so happy to announce that have now joined the Amazon Influencer program!

Athena and Marie Amazon Influencer page for cat people and their cat!

Yes, Mum and I now have an Amazon Storefront with curated lists of purrmazing cat-themed ideas we're sure cat people will love! 

What is an Amazon Influencer? 

When you join the Amazon Influencer Program you are able to recommend products to your followers and friends and then get paid a small commission when someone purchases from your store.

Is it the same as being an Amazon Associate?

The Amazon Influencer program is for qualifying social media influencers so you will need a qualifying YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook account to join. The Influencer Program also gives you access to additional tools and you can send traffic from social media platforms using your own page (storefront) and vanity URL, which you will receive once you're approved. You will then be able to curate your own lists of recommended products to your followers and earn a commission from anyone shopping through your storefront.

How do I join the Amazon Influencer Program?

Simply go to and complete the qualification process. 

How's Athena and Marie's Amazon Influencer page doing?

So far we are loving it. Mum has been busy choosing many of her favourite items.  She chose products that we use ourselves and other related products that we think will be of interest to you, our friends and followers. So that's mostly cats, but we're not all about cats! Mum has lots of other interests (mmm... I thought she only thought of me) and is loving creating lists for all sorts of stuff. 

I want to reassure you though, that she would never recommend anything she wouldn't consider buying herself and will only list things she likes and has bought and used herself.

As you can see from the following screenshots, most of our recommendations are cat inspired but Mum has included other things in her life that she uses daily or frequently.

And because Mum is an author she has also included her own books. To date, she's written 3 books about cats as well as books in other genres. Plus she has added a list of some great cat book reads by other authors too! 

You can check out our cat food and toys recommendations too, which is the most important of all!

fantastic finds for feline lovers on Amazon

my Amazon Influencer page contains everything for the cat and cat lover


We are sharing some Instagram photos and a video clip for The Cat on My Head Sunday Selfies blog hop. We're a day late, I know.

1 . If it wasn’t for ___________________, I ___________________. 2. ____________________ before ________________________. 3. _________ is my preferred method of communication. 4. You can’t buy _________.

Marie's Answers

1. If it wasn't for my love of animals, I would seriously crack up. Being an animal rights advocate can be tough but my passion for these animals and my empathy for their plight keeps me from turning away. They need as many human voices as they can get to fight the evil of most of mankind.
2. I like to wake up very early and watch some Netflix or Amazon Prime before the break of dawn when the chaos of daylight and the noise and busyness of human life descends on me.
3. Email is my preferred method of communication. I hate talking on the phone. I need to gather my thoughts in order before I can have a proper conversation. I'm an INJF but I also put it down to anxiety and depression which just clouds my mind.
4. You can't buy love. Not really, unless you buy a pet, which I wouldn't approve of. Best to rescue from a shelter, which I did with the lovely Athena. True love for sure.

Athena's Answers

1. If it wasn’t for my dear Mum, I wouldn't be here and having these great adventures as a celebrity and talking to all my furriends and followers!
2. I like to get up before Mum so I can wake her up for my breakfast.
3. Staring at Mum is my preferred method of communication.
4. You can’t buy happiness. Unless you buy a cat, I suppose. But it's best to rescue one from the shelter like Mum did with me.

Love Your Pet Day Sunday Selfie

20th Feb is Love Your Pet Day, so forget about Valentine's Day and celebrate the love of your pet instead! 💕

But we all know it's always Love Your Pet Day for us though, isn't it?😽😘

Here's our animal-human love celebration selfie. Yeah, it says Happy Valentine's Day because we made a few Valentine graphics this year :)

We posted 2 versions of this selfie because in the first pic I am looking at the camera with my amazing green eyes but Mum looks miserable, and on the second Mum looks quite bright-eyed but I'm looking away. The frame is from LoonaPix (not to be confused with LunaPic).

Friendly Fill-Ins

And now it's time for the Friendly Fill-Ins hop, hosted by 15andMeowing aWend Four-Legged Furballs.

1. I want to make _________.

2. My _________ are _________.

3. A day in my life always includes _________.

4. Good things happen to those who _________.

Marie's Answers

1. I want to make money from my writing. It's not as shallow as it sounds. We all have to make a living and depression and anxiety does stop me from having a normal life like going out to work every day.

2. My love for cats, all animals, music, books and writing keeps me going through the hard times. And I haven't had many good times to write about, but I'm doing my best.

3. A day in my life always means I can swing from low to high and back again throughout the day. Athena's sweet healing purrs and the fact that she lets me kiss her and cuddle her helps me a lot.

4. Good things happen to those who wait? Well, I've been waiting for a long time! Ok, I know I shouldn't moan as I've finally got a beautiful house away from horrible old London but I'm still sad inside. Not just with depression and anxiety (there is a lot I can't do with those two demons). However, I'm trying to do the best that I can (I can hear a Stevie Nicks song coming on).

Athena's Answers

1. I want to make Mum do everything I want (she says I do, but I don't think so!)
2. My eyes are my best feature.
3. A day in my life always includes treats, kisses and hugs from Mum.
4. Good things happen to those who love a cat!
