Yelp for Cats? Welcome to Yowl!

Don't assume cats can't review businesses. They have Yowl, the feline review site.

Do you Yelp? It's the site that lets you review businesses and read other patrons' reviews before trying that restaurant, salon, or podiatrist. I love testimonials and can't stand wasting money on bad products or services, so I loved this concept. And I guess everyone could use a mother's little Yelper, right? (Sorry.)

With Yelp, you can offer tips, like "Don't try the smoked weasel testicles" or "Ask for Maxine. She's a whiz with the curling iron!" After your visit, you can rate the business with one to five stars and then also write a review. I'm really enjoying reading others' reviews and hope I've assisted others with my own. So I guess you can say I get by with a little Yelp from my friends. (Sorry. Again.)

Cats, too, are savvy shoppers and don't like wasting good money. Wasting time, yes. Wasting sweet moolah, not so much. This is why they use the feline-friendly version of Yelp. It's called Yowl and is all the rage in the cat community. I ran across a couple of recent Yowl entries my cats made and thought I'd share them. Enjoy!
