Litter Genie Waste Disposal

User Rating: 0 / 5

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

During our recent trip to SuperZoo (a magical place where many wondrous and amazing pet products are introduced to the public for the first time), we stumbled upon a marvelous new invention known as the Litter Genie.

Now, if you’re like us, and you have multiple cats presiding over your household, you know that the litter box is just about the only downside to having feline friends. This is why we are so excited to introduce you to this product.

The Litter Genie is made by the same people as the Diaper Genie and it functions in much the same way. You simply scoop up the waste from the box, open the lid of the Litter Genie and drop in the clumps, then pull the handle to seal in the waste and odor. You can store up to two weeks of waste without a single trip to the garbage can!

Mountain Cat Trees Inspire Felines

We look at a lot of things when we are scoping out new products for our pets. Our fussy felines are particularly picky because they get so many choices.

So when we saw the beautiful line of products from Mountain Cat Trees, we were thrilled to check them out. Each tree is handcrafted, eco-friendly and made in the USA. The trees used in the creation of these posts are locally harvested pine, poplar and birch (from such situations as storm damage or as a result of forest management in the North Quabbin Region).  The finished product is complete with a nontoxic and environmentally safe clear coat finish: all things that are very important to us.

We started with the 35” vertical scratching post  which has a 20” x  4” base and weighs just over 18 lbs. This creates a very secure set up that both of our cats are fond of using as their primary scratch post and it can even handle a giant dog jumping on it without tipping over.  This post  is specifically designed for larger cats – our Maine Coon feels right at home – and is great for interactive play!

Does your cat have a drinking problem?

User Rating: 5 / 5

Recently, we embarked on a six-week journey with our friends at Purina One to learn more about our cats True Nature and water became a number one topic of concern between participants. Because cats are descended from feline desert dwellers, it’s become a common misconception that they don’t need much water to survive. This is simply not true. A cat’s body is made up of over 70% water. Traditionally cats would hunt and eat prey, which is where they would pick much of the moisture needed. But nowadays, cats rely heavily on dry kibble with cans or raw food used as a supplement. What all of this means is, your cat is probably not drinking enough water. Convincing Your Cat to Drink

Without enough water, cats are prone to urinary tract infections, bladder infections, and the development of crystals. The best way to avoid these is to remind your cats to drink more water, and then trick them into doing so. One way we can do this is to locate a pet water fountain that simulates water as it appears in nature. The theory is that if your cats are fascinated by it, they will spend more time near it, and eventually they will drink from it, thereby consuming more water.

While we were at BlogPaws this past month, we stopped by the Catifcation lounge. This was a one-stop shop for “all things cat” and it was here that we learned about the new Cat-A-Pole cat toy. Kate from Hauspantherwas kind enough to give us one to try out and it’s fair to say our house has not been the same since...

As you know, we have been working with Purina One on their True Nature of Cats program, which means we have been exploring new and interactive ways to keep our cats entertained. The Cat A Pole toy is one way we have done this. With scheduled playtimes, our home is more regulated and our cats are much happier. The Cat A Pole has become the most sought-after form of entertainment.

Blanket ID - a beautiful way to tag your pets

User Rating: 0 / 5

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

While all pets should be microchipped, ID tags are one of the most important ways to ensure your pets are returned to you in the event of escape. There are many ways to tag your pets, but in our opinion, Blanket ID is one of the classiest. These beautiful tags are waterproof, nearly indestructible, and since they are much smaller than most tags, they don’t get caught up during rough playtime. After all, the best tag is one that will always stay on your pet! Each pet is assigned a set of numbers (already individually printed on the back of the tag). By keeping information on the tag minimal, it allows for the tag itself to be much more compact and lightweight, which is especially great for cats and small dogs. Once you purchase a tag (in any of the beautiful patterns), you register your tag at blanketID.com. Upon registering, you will be asked to fill out a short questionnaire about your pet, including a description, medical information, and additional notes that might make your pet easier to recover...

  • 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,
