If you’re tired of having to hide the fuzzy scratching post when guests come around, or are simply looking for cat accessories that will look amazing in your home, then the new QuickSnapTM Replaceable Cat Scratcher from Feline Innovations is for you!

This innovative scratcher is available on Kickstarter to the first 500 backers for a special “Early Bird” offer of $25. The scratcher will retail for $59.99, so this is an incredible deal!

I love the design of this new scratcher, and the thought put into it. Feline Innovations’ new take on the cat scratcher goes beyond what you normally find in scratchers, creating not only a beautiful piece of cat scratching furniture, but one that brings much needed replacement functionality forward, significantly extending the life of the cat scratcher.

Long lasting replacement value

The scratcher features their patent pending QuickSnapTM Replaceable Method, which allows cat guardians to easily “snap on” and “snap off” the sisal scratching material, and quickly replace it when it becomes worn out. Additional scratching pads are also available in carpet and sea grass, offering a variety of scratching surfaces to keep your cats happy and engaged.

The QuickSnapTM Replaceable Cat Scratcher was designed to bring three main features to cat lovers and living rooms alike:

  1. Beautiful Aesthetics

A major focus was to create a scratcher that doubles as a furniture piece that can complement any living room décor, while maintaining a reasonable price. The QuickSnapTM Cat Scratcher achieves this with high quality wood finishes with a dark, luxurious shade.

  1. Easy Replacements (QuickSnapTM Replaceable Design)

Cats love to scratch. And when they do, things get destroyed (hopefully not your furniture.) Which means that, in all likelihood, whatever scratcher you purchase, eventually you’ll have to throw it out and get a new one.

With the easy-to-use, patent-pending QuickSnapTM Replaceable feature, users simply snap off worn-out scratching material and snap on a new pad instead of having to buy an entirely new scratcher. Replacement scratching mats will be available at an affordable price.

  1. Customizability

Scratching pads come in sisal, carpet, and sea grass. Additional colors will be available as more cat guardians discover and share this amazing new scratcher.

I love products that combine function and form. There’s no reason that you can’t have nice things when you have cats! I can’t wait to try QuickSnapTM Replaceable Cat Scratcher for Allegra and Ruby.

Allegra and Ruby’s Morning Routine

cats-morning-routine

It’s no secret that cats are creatures of habit, and that they like their routines. Not surprisingly, cats’ routines will develop around their humans’ schedule and household routines. While such a routine driven life may seem boring to humans, it helps cats feel safe and confident. In fact, routines are so important to cats that having them disrupted can even impact their physical health.

I was going to tell you about Allegra and Ruby’s morning routine, but they wanted to tell you in their own words. Continue reading…

E-Cigarettes Are Toxic to Cats

ecigarettes-vaping-toxic-cats

We’ve previously covered the dangers of secondhand smoke for cats: cats living with smokers are twice as likely to develop malignant lymphoma than those in non-smoking households. Cats with five or more years of exposure to tobacco smoke were at more than three times greater risk of developing lymphoma. Studies also suggest a link between oral cancer in cats and exposure to tobacco smoke. Some smokers are now using electronic, or e-cigarettes, and it turns out that the vapor from these devices is highly toxic to cats as well, and can even be fatal. Continue reading…

Summer Reading for Cat Lovers

One of my greatest summer pleasures is spending time outside with a good book. Whether it’s on my deck, in a sidewalk cafe, or a park, there’s just something about reading outdoors that makes one of my favorite pastimes even more special. I like to read a lot of different genres, but of course, a large part of my summer reading list is made up of cat books.

You can find plenty of suggestions for your reading list in the book section on this site. I also maintain an extensive reading list. Today, I thought I’d share some old favorites that make for great summer reading. Continue reading…

Britain’s new Prime Minister Theresa May moved into the official residence at 10 Downing Street on Wednesday as David Cameron left the office, but one important member of Britain’s government is staying put: Larry, the brown and white tabby who moved into the residence in 2011. The official mouser is considered a government worker and will continue to live at the famous address even after his boss packs his bags. For more about Larry and the tradition of Downing Street cats, visit NBC News.

Nine Lives: A Story of Catastrophe, Compassion and Caring – Part Three: It’s a Wonderful Life

9-cats-collage

During my recent visit to Los Angeles, I met nine cats and Chery, the woman who is caring for them. I meet a lot of cats in my work, but rarely have I been as affected by an encounter as I was by this one. These cats lived through trauma and hardship. They are a testament to the resilience of animals, and their ability to live in the moment, no matter what they may have encountered in their past. Spending time with Chery and the cats was a magical and humbling experience. This is their story.

Review: In Clover Supplements for Cats

feline-supplements

There are a lot of supplements for pets on the market, and it can be challenging for cat parents to know not only which ones your cat might need, but which ones are quality products. I’m always on the lookout for quality products, and was intrigued when In Clover approached me about reviewing some of their supplements.

I rarely accept supplements for review unless it’s something I’ve already thoroughly researched and/or tried. I won’t use Allegra and Ruby as product testers for products whose claims I can’t verify. After taking a look around In Clover’s website, I was impressed. Continue reading…
