Hi everyone, it’s Ruby! I want to tell you about the cool new thing that came in the mail the other day! It was addressed to Allegra and me, but as soon as Mom took this particular item out of the box, I knew it was meant for me. It’s my own little cave! Mom said I need to describe it better than that, and she started to use all sorts of big words, so why don’t I let her tell you what it is.Continue Reading

Review: Organic Cat Toys from PurrfectPlay

organic-catnip-toys

Cat toys don’t get much better than the ones from PurrfectPlay. Made in the USA from 100% natural and organic materials, these durable and safe toys are not only fun for pets, they’re made by a company that prides itself on earth-friendly business practices. Their motto is “if Mother Nature didn’t make it, we don’t use it!”

PurrfectPlay does not use any synthetics or plastic. The toys are dye and toxin free, they are sustainable and fair trade, and they donate 5% of each sale to dedicated rescue organizations.

The organic catnip used in these toys must be pretty potent, because Allegra and Ruby were both interested in the box from PurrfectPlay before I even opened it. They couldn’t wait to get their paws on these toys!

We received a box of Teabag Tumbler Cat Toys and a bag of Organic Wool Dust Bunnies. The Teabag Tumblers are adorable, and, as you can see in the video below, Allegra approves of the potent catnip they are filled with!

Ruby goes nuts for the Organic Wool Dust Bunnies and chases them all over the house. When I toss them for her, she goes flying after them, and you can just hear her going “wee!!!”

I loved everything I heard about these toys: they make the girls happy, they’re safe, and they’re made by a company whose business practices I admire.

This fountain is no longer available

Fountains are a great way to encourage cats to drink more water. Water is critical to keeping your cat healthy. Even though cats get moisture from a raw or canned diet, they should still have plenty of fresh water available at all times. Cats as a species don’t have a high thirst drive, and this can lead to chronic low-level dehydration if a cat is fed mostly dry food, which in turn, can lead to urinary tract and kidney problems.

Review: Merrick Purrfect Bistro

merrick-cat-food-review

At Global Pet Expo earlier this year, I had one of the most fascinating conversations I’ve ever had about pet food with a representative from Merrick Pet Care. I have long considered Merrick one of the better offerings in the pet food arena, and after my conversation with Mark, I like the brand even more, for a variety of reasons:Continue Reading

Cozy Cat Beds for Cats Who Are Cavers

cat-bed

Do your cats like to snuggle under blankets or comforters? Do they like to sleep partially covered? Jackson Galaxy calls these cats “cavers*.” These are the cats who will often find a space in a closet or under the bed, and you may not see them out and about as much as other cats. It’s important to provide alternate, safe spaces for these kitties so they can cave in comfort.

We have two cat beds for you that will make your caving kitties purr!Continue Reading

PawPack Subscription Box Review

PawPack-subscription

Subscription services for pets are becoming more and more popular. The concept is simple: for a monthly fee, you receive a box a month filled with treats and toys. The contents of the box are picked for you, so each month brings new surprises for you and your feline family members. Allegra and Ruby are completely on board with this idea: after all, what could be better than receiving a box of treats and toys every single month! They were super excited when the teal box from PawPack showed up at our house.Continue Reading

Review: Vesper Cat Furniture

Vesper-V-Base

I first saw the new Vesper line of cat furniture from Hagen at Superzoo in Las Vegas last summer. I fell in love with it on the spot. It’s quite possibly the most beautiful line of cat furniture I’ve seen, and I see a lot of cat furniture. When I saw it again at Global Pet Expo last month, I loved it just as much, and picked it as my choice for Best in Show.

The entire line offers the purrfect combination of beautiful design, cat-friendly materials and absolutely wonderful workmanship. All of the pieces are simply stunning. They feature different combinations of platforms, cubes, and tunnels, and plenty of scratching areas.Continue Reading

Review: Seedling Tree House from Pet Tree Houses

pet-tree-houses-cat-tree

Cat trees are a must have for indoor cats. They satsify cats’ need to climb, they provide a great view of the outdoors if placed near a window, and they offer an outlet for cats’ natural instinct to scratch. Cat trees are especially important in multicat households, giving cats opportunities to share territory on more than one level, without bumping into each other and creating possible altercations.

With so many options for cat trees, ranging from basic carpeted models to wooden works of art, there are plenty of choices for discerning felines and humans. Continue Reading
