  • Catnip and Caviar Dreams: Kitten Fur Perfume is Here

    For the woman who demands excellence in life, Demeter Fragrance is proud to bring you the most exquisite of all fragrances: Kitten Fur.

    Yes, I’m quite serious. 

    The playful perfume is designed for the elite, sophisticated woman who knows what she wants in life. With top notes of pure Madagascar vanilla and rich Brazilian honey, Kitten Fur also features a delicate base of jasmine and oakwood that teases the senses with all of the fury of a sleek jaguar prowling the borderlands. 

    Okay, I actually have no idea what it smells like, I’m just musing until my order comes in. 

    But, one thing is for certain - the timeless contemporary scent of newborn kitten will mark you as a woman to remember.

  • The OnlyLeash - a Lightweight, Quick-Grab Leash Solution

    The OnlyLeash is one of the most interesting (and useful) collars we’ve received this year. If you have a large dog who you occasionally need to get quick control over and you don’t have time to grab a leash, this is the #OnlyLeash (see what I did there?) that you need to know about. 

    The Only Leash™ is a looped bungee leash that can connect to any collar or harness. When you need quick control, just quickly slip the lead over your pet's head for about a one-foot lead. It lets you control your dog without choking them or hurting yourself in the process. 

    When I talk about the need to gain quick control, I’m talking about the big Labrador who rushes the FedEx driver at the door, the mastiff who loves to escort you out to the mailbox, or the pit bull who hates that garbage truck rolling by. It’s a stop-gap for gaining quick control and it’s perfect for large dogs. 

    This is a tool you want when you can’t hunt down a leash every six seconds, because if you spent the time looking for a leash, the moment of control will have passed you by.

  • PetSmart Announces "Buy A Bag, Give A Meal™" program

    PetSmart has just announced the launch of it’s “Buy a Bag, Give a Meal™” program. This philanthropic program will help thousands of rescues and millions of pets in need. For every bag purchased online or in any of its 1,500+ stores in the U.S., Canada or Puerto Rico, they will donate a meal to a pet in need. 

    Human food banks report that nearly one in seven Americans must rely on food bank services to make ends meet. Since pet food is rarely donated to food banks, and pet food is normally not an eligible item for food assistance programs, families often use their own food to feed pets.

    PetSmart's #ForTheLoveOfPets program will assist families in keeping their animals, even if they have fallen on hard times.

  • Applications Being Accepted for AZ Desert Tortoise Adoptions

    Each year, Arizona Game and Fish Department (AZGFD) offers residents a chance to adopt a desert tortoise. This year, nearly 100 desert tortoises will awaken to prepare for summer and AZGFD wants to make sure they get into good homes.

    This is a unique and relatively rare opportunity to bring an amazing pet into your home (or yard). 

    There is no charge to adopt these animals, but adopters must have a securely enclosed yard or a separate enclosure that is free from others pets, unfenced pools and other hazards. You must be a permanent resident of Arizona to qualify because these are tortoises that have to stay in our unique environment.

    These tortoises are only available for adoption to residents living within the species’ native range (which includes the Phoenix, Bullhead City, Kingman, Prescott, Lake Havasu, Tucson and Yuma areas).  Each will receive health checks before going to their homes. 

    This year, there is a wide range of ages and sizes available for adoption. Here's the scoop...

  • Feline Fix By Five

    In case you missed that February was February was National Prevent A Litter Month, we’re giving you another reminder with a new program called Feline Fix by Five. 

    The Feline Fix By Five project was created by Marian’s Dream Foundation. The goal of this program is to help remind folks to make sure their cats are fixed by their first heat. Esther Mechler, Director of Marian’s Dream, created the Fix Felines by Five as a way of engaging and educating the public about this important topic. 

    The traditional model of having cats neutered by six months of age results in unwanted litters, particularly in cats that are allowed outdoors. Cat overpopulation is a problem around the world and this simple change focused on alteration by five months instead of six months is a way to prevent unwanted litters. This small change would help decrease the risk of unwanted litters by ensuring that these “tween” kittens will not have that accidental first “whoops” litter.

At PetsWeekly we aren’t just about cats and dogs – we endeavor to cover the entire scope of pets that our readers have in their lives.  Lovers of ferrets and other small critters, you are no exception.

As you probably know, ferrets love curling up in small, dark spaces.  If you’re the type of ferret owner who likes to keep your ferret out of their cage for most of the day while you’re around, you should take a peek at the Dookie Houser wooden burrows from Ferret Hideaway. These all natural wood hideaways are a decorative and fun way to give your little critter a place to sneak off for a nap when they feel the need.

Each Dookie Houser is coated with a soy-based, non-toxic finish to protect the wood from wear, moisture damage, and mold.  Not only that, but they have a neat flip top lid that makes them easy to clean, and makes it easy to reach in and pick up your little furry friend when you need to.  They make them all by hand meaning every burrow is a one of a kind.  There are currently 17 hideaway designs to choose from on their website, but if you don’t see a design that catches your eye, they will gladly custom build one for you.

Keep in mind that you shouldn’t use a Dookie Houser as your ferret’s regular cage, as they aren’t secure like a standard metal cage, and you don’t want them using it as their toilet, because that would damage the wood over time.  Place the hideaway in your critter’s cage for them to curl up in, but be careful if you select a design that has other wooden pieces attached to it (such as the Balloon Fun and Home Sweet Home burrows). If your ferret is a chewer, or if you have a young ferret who is teething, they could chew off tiny bits of the decorations and possibly choke on them.

Though they seemed a little highly priced to us at first ($40-$70 each, depending on size), they are built to last, the construction of the burrows are 100% guaranteed for the lifetime of the burrow, and they cover the shipping costs.

The Dookie Houser burrows are absolutely adorable, earth friendly, and to top all of that good stuff off – a portion of all purchases are donated to no kill shelters.

Don’t forget to send in photos of your Dookie Houser in action!
