Creating an environment that stimulates your cats’ senses and gives them opportunities to exercise their natural instincts is critically important for their mental and physical well-being. Cat trees and condos meet your cat’s need to climb, perch, hide. Environmental enrichment not only makes cats happy, it can also prevent serious behavior problems ranging from scratching and inappropriate elimination to aggression toward other cats in the household.Continue Reading

Does Your Cat Get The “Zoomies?”

cat-zoomies

I actually found a definition for the word “zoomies” in Urban Dictionary, and even though the definition was for dogs, it’s exactly what I’m talking about: “when your dog runs around the house like crazy jumping on the couch, running up and down the stairs, and all over the house. It usually ends with them falling to the floor, panting like crazy and taking a nap.”

At our house, Ruby is the Queen of the Zoomies. Several times a day, she races through the house, up and down the cat tree, and up and along the back of the sofa. Her zoomies loop seems to be almost exactly the same every day. Continue Reading

Cat Haven Cat Trees

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.

I really like cat trees that look like “real” trees. Continue Reading

Review: Scratching Tree from Pet Tree Houses

Scratchng_Tree

Scratching posts are a vital part of sharing your living space with cats. Cats scratch for a variety of reasons: they scratch to groom their claws, the scratching motion helps remove dead sheaths from their front claws (they usually chew them off their back claws). They scratch to mark their territory. Their front paws contain scent glands, and scratching leaves behind their unique signature on the object being scratched. They scratch for exercise; scratching stretches the muscles in the front legs and all along the back. And they scratch simply because it feels good.

When it comes to scratching posts, bigger is usually better. The Scratching Tree from Pet Tree Houses is a beautifully made, solid vertical scratcher. Continue Reading

10 Best Cat Products of 2015

2015-editors-choice

I see a lot of new products each year. Between what I saw at Global Pet Expo in March, and the dozens of products that were sent to me over the course of the year, it’s probably safe to say that I’ve seen thousands of pet products in 2015. Allegra and Ruby have been busy helping me review many of them for you throughout the year. With so many products, it’s really hard to choose only 10 favorites, but with the help of my two product testers, we’ve come up with this list (presented in the order that we reviewed them).Continue Reading
