Flor Carpet Squares for Pet-friendly Design PDF Print E-mail

Ever since we put in our cat enclosure, we’ve been searching for the perfect flooring material. We finally found it. Today we want to share with you a look at Flor carpet design squares – a great flooring alternative for stylish, pet-friendly design!

As you all know, we moved our colony of feral and semi-feral cats with us a few years ago. There were a lot of reasons for doing this, but safety was the number one factor. Since we now live in a remote area, we built an indoor-outdoor enclosure for our wilder cats. The outdoor enclosure requires nothing but easy access, fun places to hide, and some nice indoor/outdoor furniture to lounge upon. But our indoor area needed something that the cats wouldn’t be able to tear apart, was easy to clean, was both warm (in winter) and cool (in summer), and still looked nice.

Flor delivered on every level…

Not only have they held up to the abuse our extremely pet-friendly home reigns down on all types of flooring, but they have retained their beautiful colors, held up to sharp claws without snagging, and remain simple to clean. Flor has indeed set a new standard for fashion and utility in our home.

Whether you have cats, dogs, ferrets or kids – this is a perfect flooring solution for kitchens, mud rooms, TV rooms, and more. Any place you need a comfortable, secure surface that is easily cleaned and very fashionable.

Costume or Paint: Options for Dressing up Dogs PDF Print E-mail

Before I begin, I want to reiterate that I am usually not a fan of dressing your dog or cat up for Halloween. However, we have had many requests over the year asking us about safe costumes or options for pets during the holiday, which is why I have made an exception to my rule, "I will never dress my pets up for a holiday." And you know what? We actually had a lot of fun doing it!

These days, there are a lot of safe options for dressing up your pet and because we want to make sure everyone is doing it safely, we are going to discuss a few of our favorites. Animal Planet has come out with some brilliant new costumes for your pets. In this picture, Brock models the Stegosaurus costume. They also have sharks, lions, Tyranosaurus Rex and even some fun costumes that are also a little silly (like the Silver Starlet or Cupcake costumes).

Paw Pods: Affordable, All-Natural Pet Urns PDF Print E-mail

There is nothing more painful than losing a pet. Not only is there the stress of losing our best friend, there is the worry about what to do with their remains. When we lost Tristan, and more recently, Ghost and Blackie, we could barely afford the cremation services, let alone purchase an urn in which to keep their cremains. At the time, our options were severely limited.

But recently, we were introduced to PawPods– a unique, biodegradable urn that helps you really cope with the loss of a pet in a way that won’t break the bank.

Paw Pods is committed to green practices and each urn is made from bamboo and rice husk, creating a completely biodegradable, eco-friendly burial pod. Their patent pending process uses all natural dyes, glues, and sealers.

Finding Rover: The New App for Lost Dogs PDF Print E-mail

Thanks to a brand new app, finding a lost dog seems a task less daunting. As a pet owner, I often worry about the odds my pup has of being reunited with our family if he ever got lost. Even though he is microchipped, there is no guarantee that he will be found safely, or, if he makes it that far, that he’ll be taken to a local vet, the pound, or any other place that has a microchip scanner. There are too many factors in the way of my dog’s safe return.

Now, the times have changed. Apple finally released an app called Finding Rover that utilizes facial recognition software to create a pet database.

It’s really pretty simple. All the user has to do is to use the app to take a photo of their beloved canine. Once the photo loads to the database, the pet can be registered to its owner.

If a pet is found, a person can snap a photo of the lost dog, and if the pup is in the database, all of its owner’s contact info will appear. You can send the worried parents a text message letting them know that their pet is safe, and arrange for a pet/family reunion. What could be easier than that?

The loss of a pet can strike us deep in our hearts. While our pets memories will forever be with us, it’s in art that we can capture an artistic impression of our pet.

Rainbow Bridge Hearts uses your pets cremains to create a unique and beautiful piece of glass art that you can keep with you forever (and if you are interested in doing the same with the cremains of a human loved one, there is a separate division called Artful Ashes).

With artistic swirls of color and ashes, each work of art is unique to you and your pet. Your best friend’s cremains are handled carefully and with the utmost respect, strict tracking and production methods are followed, so you know that your remembrance art is truly unique. Each heart is stamped for individual identification.
