Killing them with kindness, one smile at a time.

It's no secret — we've been pretty effusive about our love for Netflix's 'The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell' since before it premiered last October. If you haven't watched it yet, go do it. Yes, now. We'll wait.


See?! Would we lie to you?

A big part of that love stems from the fact that the two primary puppet characters on the show, Rankle the reanimated ancient Egyptian cat and Rose the reanimated roadkill raccoon, both perfectly channel the personalities Meredith and I have projected onto our cats Oliver and Bigby for years. 

In one of the episodes a dispute with one of her neighbors causes Christine to agree with Rankle & Rose — much to their initial glee — that yes, they should kill the neighbor...with kindness. Rankle's reaction was priceless:

It was at that moment we knew we had to do the design predicated on the old "kill them with kindness" adage that you see at the top there. Scroll to the bottom to view the other new design we added this week. On your way, give a listen to this week's podcast episode!


This week it's just Meredith, me, some cats, some rain, and some cocktails. We share a customer review, chat about the #MeToo movement and cisgender males generally being creeps, dole out a lot of shout outs to deserving folks, and relate our travails in finding a good petsitter. We also talk about how we want to hear from YOU for a new upcoming email feature! If you'd like to participate and be featured in an upcoming email sporting your fave Boredwalk gear and answering a fun interview questionnaire, let us know!

That's it for this week. Before you go, two more new releases to drop. First, this sweet little number for all you seafaring goths:
