Even though Allegra and Ruby sleep in my bed with me at night, they still like to have plenty of napping options elsewhere in the house during the day, and they were super excited when Peach Pet Provisions sent us their newest product, the Peach Pillow Bed. You may recognize the name Peach from a product we previously introduced you to, the Kitty Lounger, which has remained one of Allegra and Ruby’s favorite napping spots.Continue Reading

Grow a Loving Memory with The Living Urn™

This post is sponsored by The Living Urn™

Losing a beloved cat is devastating, no matter what the circumstances. Grief is a very individual experience, and no two cat guardians will grieve in exactly the same way. Rituals can play an important role in the healing process. There is something about acknowledging grief through a tangible action that can help soothe raw emotions.

Rituals can take many different forms. The best ritual is the one that has the most meaning for you. To me, one of the most beautiful rituals to honor the memory of a beloved cat is to plant a tree in her memory. Continue Reading

It’s Tortie Girls Time!

“The gold and orange and yellow of tortoiseshell cats may seem more of an autumn theme, but for me those bright colors always meant June and sunshine,” says animal artist and writer Bernadette E. Kazmarski. “I love to welcome the summer with my tortie girls Cookie and Kelly on as many items as I can make.”

She originally designed these prints in 2001 before digital and gicleé printing were affordable to sell at art festivals and to donate to shelter and rescue events.Continue Reading

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.

Save $30 on NatureSPA Pet Fountain with UV Sterilization

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.

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
