Cat Technology Drives our Business

Movie Making is our Motivation!

Dash Kitten blog works to create the best ‘cat tech’ reports for our readers and provide PAWesome ‘How To’ pet movie advice.

Dash Kitten is based in New Zealand, often known as Middle-Earth thanks to the amazing movies created by Weta Workshop and director Peter Jackson. From here we reach around the world thanks to our readers; providing a focused and interested audience for our sponsors. 


The content of this blog is Marjorie Dawson’s own opinions and research. I do not reflect the opinions of any organisations I may be affiliated with.  I am not a qualified dietician, veterinary nurse or scientist. My aim is to make these areas less scary for readers and encourage them to investigate further themselves to expand their knowledge.

The information I provide on the blog is for informational purposes only, and provided from the best of my knowledge. I always urge you to consult expert qualified advice when making a decision of importance that affects the health, welfare and lives of you and your pet.  My advice, although well researched, will never replace the qualified knowledge and training of a veterinarian or health professional at any time. When in doubt, always check with an expert in the field on any health, and complex technical issues.

I reserve the right to change the management of our blog at any time as our focus and intentions shift.

Marjorie Dawson the creative behind DashKitten.com 

I am assisted by my feline muses the Dash Kitten Crew. The blog was inspired by Dash Kitten, our rescue cat who was killed in a dog attack. The struggle back from his loss was a very real one, but the determination to honour him won through.

I use my creative talents to feature some of the finest cat technology related products worldwide, and also enable cat lovers and bloggers to enhance their movie making skills.

I am a professional member of the Cat Writers’ Association and have written a popular ebook ‘How to Make Your Pet an Internet Movie Star‘. 50% of the profits on the ebook are donated to Place for Cats, a 501(c )(3) foster network for cats.

Whskr Blogger at Dash Kitten

I am also a BlogPaws Certificate of Excellence winner for ‘Excellence in a Collaborative Blogging Effort‘ for creative story work with Nerissa’s Life and Savannah’s Paw Tracks in 2015.
