Feed Your Cat's Wild Side with #NaturalBalance

User Rating: 5 / 5

Star ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar Active

Our cats are big fans of the outdoors. Cassie, in particular, has to be outdoors every day or she gets completely stir-crazy. She loves sniffing around the yard, chasing lizards, and watching the birds who love to nest in our trees. There are a thousand smells and she can pretend to be a lion (and I think there is a remote possibility she may be). 

The one and only thing that brings her back indoors is food. After her long morning treks around the yard, she retreats to the indoors to eat (her second favorite thing - because she is a really terrible hunter) and sleep. Then take a nap, then eat again, then - well, you get the idea.

We’ve been on the hunt for a new diet for her since she started picking up weight. Finding a high-quality diet she likes, however, has been difficult. This week, we just got some samples in from Natural Balance® that fit her unique dietary requirements and she seems to be taking to it quite well.

A Month with the Febreze Air Purifer #KeepItFresh

User Rating: 0 / 5

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

We’ve been using our new Febreze™ Air Purifier for about a month now and it’s time to let you know what we think. Let me sum it up in a word: Impressive.

I say this for a few reasons. First, it’s remarkably great at clearing the air in any room. We primarily use it in the kitchen (especially on the days that I cook). My husband and I are great fans of things like cabbage and brussel sprouts, but as you know, they leave your house reeking of terrible things for days. Before we start making any meal, we set this bad boy loose and that rank Brussels sprout odor is replaced with clean, unscented air.

The thing I love most (besides the fact that it works) is that you have the option of using the scent pack. We usually choose to use it on it's low setting, but when we want the house to feel fresh for company, we turn it up. Sometimes we just use it completely odorless and love the way keeps the house smelling (and feeling) fresh.

The FeedSafe Feeding Station for Feeding Individual Diets

User Rating: 0 / 5

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

In multi-pet homes, keeping pets out of the others food is of critical importance. If you have a chow-hound who loves to invade your cat's food bowls (or any other situation that requires feeding individual diets in multi-pet homes), we have a solution for you.

The name of this innovative product is the Feed-Safe Feeding Station.

Feed Safe is a durable enclosure that easily stops larger pets from raiding your smaller pet's food bowl. Not only does this stop other your dog from raiding your cat's food, it can give critters like ferrets a safe place to eat while they're roaming around in their free time. It can also be easily adjusted to help separate kitten or puppy food from the mama-cat or mama-dog.

This is also a very useful solution for animals who tend to be slow eaters, or those who are on a prescription diet.

Another unexpected benefit was being able to keep the cats off the counters! We admit - we have some bad habits and the cats will usually eat their canned food on the counter. This is not the cleanest way to handle the situation, but placing the food on the floor became impossible with our quick acting dogs. This is a great way to let your cats eat their canned foods at their own pace without being on the counter top and without being harassed by larger pets.

Improving Air Quality with FebrezeAir #KeepItFresh

Air quality is a big issue even if you don’t have pets. Millions of people live in regions where outdoor pollution cause health problems such as asthma, respiratory illness, and even heart disease. According to Lung.org, the six most widespread pollutants are ozone, particulate matter, nitrogen dioxide, sulfur dioxide, carbon monoxide and lead. Not only do these contaminants affect us, they affect our pets. And our pets pose even more of a problem to our air quality when we start thinking about dust, fur, saliva, dander and other particulates. This is why air quality should be of utmost concern. It becomes even more important that you keep air clean and fresh and free from as many allergens as possible - for the sake of you and your pets.

As you know, we recently returned from BlogPaws (holding a trophy for best unconventional blog, I might add). But that’s another story. Today we want to tell you about our VIP tour of the new $110 million gold LEED-certified campus that serves as the Global Center of Excellence for Mars Petcare. Located in Thompson’s Station, Tennessee, the new campus joins the international family of facilities that Mars Petcare uses to help make A Better World for Pets (the other campuses are located in Global Innovation Centers located in Verden, Germany and Aimargues, France).

This facility currently serves as the global center for Eukanuba, Greenies, Iams, Nutro, Pedigree, Pedigree Treats, Sheba, Temptations Treats, Cesar Canine Cuisine, Whiskas, Royal Canin, Banfield and Iams.

This is a campus that was very impressive to us. for a number of reasons:

Mars Petcare sponsored our trip to Blogpaws, but our opinions are our own.

  • Cats covering feces

    Dear Ghost, Why do cats cover their feces? My two cats are neurotic about covering up everything in their litter box, which is stupid because it's automatic anyway. Is it really necessary? Thanks,
