The Assisi Loop Lounge and Sleepypod: Heal Your Cat Anywhere


This post is sponsored by Sleepypod*

I’ve previously told you about the Assisi Loop Lounge™, the result of an exciting collaboration between Sleepypod and Assisi Animal Health. Sleepypod now offers an Assisi Loop Lounge™ accessory for the Sleepypod Air and Sleepypod Atom pet carrier models.

“Sleepypod carriers have transformed how pets travel,” says Michael Leung, Sleepypod co-founder. “As a leader in non-pharmaceutical anti-inflammatory technology, Assisi Animal Health is an ideal collaborative partner to Sleepypod. Through this collaboration, we as a team are moving the ball forward in companion animal care by delivering an innovative approach to body healing and pain relief.”

How does the Loop Lounge™ work?

The Assisi Loop Lounge™ is the only therapeutic pet bed that incorporates an FDA cleared, prescription PEMF (Pulsed Electromagnetic Field) device that is backed by peer-reviewed clinical research in veterinary medicine. With the Assisi Loop’s® targeted (tPEMF™) technology, the Loop Lounge™ delivers a microcurrent targeting the body’s own natural anti-inflammatory process. This microcurrent enhances nitric oxide production, accelerating the healing of soft and hard tissues—including the skin, tendons, ligaments, bones and organs. The Assisi Loop Lounge™ is effective alone and can be used adjunctive to other therapies.


tPEMF, which was first studied in the 1970s and is FDA-cleared for use in humans, uses low-level pulses of electromagnetic energy to stimulate the body’s own healing mechanisms to help relieve pain and swelling.

The Assisi Loop Lounge™ therapy bed can be used with Sleepypod Air or Sleepypod Atom carriers in place of the traditional foam insert to create a contained, comfortable space for healing at home or on the go.


With a treatment field extending up to 10 inches from the floor to the carrier, any small animal is guaranteed not only nose-to-tail, but toes-to-tip-of-the-ear treatment coverage.

How to order the Assisi Loop Lounge™

The Assisi Loop Lounge™ requires a prescription from your veterinarian. If you already own a Sleepypod Air or Sleepypod Atom carrier, you can simply swap out the foam cushion with the Loop Lounge.

The Gift of Anticipatory Grief


Guest post by Sarah Chauncey

Anticipatory grief is grief that arises before a death—when you know it’s coming, but your cat is still alive. On one end of the spectrum, anticipatory grief can cast a shadow over the time you have left with a sick or senior cat. But this “grief in advance” can also be a gift, if we can recognize it and work with it. Continue reading…

Warning Signs of Feline Periodontal Disease

By the time they reach three years of age, about 80% of cats have oral health issues, with many showing the tell-tale signs of early onset periodontal disease.

Unfortunately, periodontal disease often goes untreated, because other than a foul smelling breath  —something that many guardians just write off as “bad breath”—there are few other symptoms of the disease during its early stages. Periodontal disease can lead to multiple problems for your cat, including pain and, eventually, tooth loss. Continue reading…

The pain of missing her has faded after all these years, but I still feel some sadness each year when Mother’s Day cards start showing up in stores, friends make plans to spend time with their moms, and restaurants offer Mother’s Day specials. Continue reading…

The nineteenth century was a rough time to be a stray cat in New York City, but a few lucky ones were rescued. In The Cat Men of Gotham: Tales of Feline Friendships in New York, Peggy Gavan tells stories of firefighters, cops, athletes and politicians and the cats they welcomed into her hearts and homes. From Jerry Fox, a cat who patrolled Brooklyn and was credited with preventing crimes and alerting people to a fire, to Homicide, a cat who became the chief mouser at lower Manhattan’s police headquarters in 1934, to Bambino, who took up residence in Mark Twain’s New York home in 1904, these stories are sure to delight cat lovers. For a preview of the book, visit the New York Post.
