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

Mews and Nips: Behold the World’s Tallest Cat Tree

worlds-tallest-cat-tree

Our friends at Pet Tree Houses just set a Guinness World Record for building the world’s tallest cat tree. The tree measures 16’ 10” to the highest platform and over 20’ tall including the leaves! Pet Tree Houses was commissioned by a family in West Linn, Oregon to design a tree for their four rescue cats to safely climb and descend their two story catmosphere. Ruby and Allegra love our Seedling Tree House from Pet Tree Houses, but I suspect that Ruby will start campaigning for a catmosphere to be added to our house…

If you missed any of the stories featured on The Conscious Cat this week, here’s a recap: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

The Original Cat’s Trapeze: Cirque du Soleil for Your Cats

cats-trapeze

When I first heard about the Cat’s Trapeze, I had visions of Allegra and Ruby flying through the air in a feline version of Cirque du Soleil – Cirque des Chats anyone?

Okay, no. It’s not that kind of trapeze. The Cat’s Trapeze is a unique product designed to provide active cats with an alternative to climbing the curtains and furniture. The sturdy cotton fabric withstands heavy use and the soft cushions provide a perfect place to nap. You can read our review of the Cat’s Trapeze here.Continue Reading
