This giveaway is sponsored by SureFlap

Do you have a cat who gobbles up his own meal and then steals everyone else’s food? Do you have a cat who needs to eat a diet that’s different from what everyone else in your household eats? Does the dog eat your cat’s food? The new SureFeed Microchip Pet Feeder may solve these problems for you. The feeder uses RFID technology to read a cat’s veterinarian-inserted microchip and determine whether or not to let the cat inside. The feeder also works with the SureFlap RIFD collar tag. When the feeder is not in use, the food compartment is covered with a clear lid. As the cat approaches the feeder, it reads the cat’s chip and the lid retracts.Continue Reading

Giveaway: Tortoiseshell or Ice Blue Food Bowls from Cats Rule

This giveaway is sponsored by Cats Rule

On Tuesday, we introduced you to two gorgeous food bowls in a tortoiseshell pattern from Cats Rule. The bowls are made of a special non-porous human grade plastic resin that is BPA and phthalate free. They are not lightweight like most plastic bowls, but look and feel like glass. The raised design can be especially helpful for senior cats with arthritis. They allow the cat to eat standing up, rather than crouching with already painful joints. Elevated dishes can also aid with proper digestion.

Cat food bowls in a tortoiseshell design? Yes, please! When it comes to food bowls, I don’t know that they come much prettier than these gorgeous bowls by Cats Rule. I first saw these bowls at CatConLA, and was delighted when the folks at Cats Rule sent me home with two of them to test with Allegra and Ruby.Continue Reading

MDeluxe Modern Handmade Pet Products Beautifully Combine Form and Function

MDeluxe cover

I love discovering cat products that are not just functional, but also beautifully designed and well made. Domen and Miha Grošelj, two brothers from Slovenia who share a great love for cats, have created an incredibly gorgeous line of products ranging from beds to scratchers to food bowls.

The brothers spend countless hours in front of the computer searching for something that their cat Rossi would love, but that would also fit into their home. Continue Reading

Giveaway: BOB Pet Bowl from Pet Pet Studios

NomBob2

The ergonomically designed and environmentally friendly BOB Pet Bowl from Pet Pet Studios is more than just another pretty pet bowl.

These combination food and water bowls are made from food-grade Polypropylene, a material that is highly resistant to acids, chemicals and heat. It is the very same material that food containers and bottles that we eat and drink from is made of. The bowls are BPA free, and they’re recyclable.

The bowls are slightly raised, which makes for a more comfortable eating experience for cats. Elevated bowls can be especially helpful for senior cats with arthritis. They allow the cat to eat standing up, rather than crouching with already painful joints. Elevated dishes can also aid with proper digestion.Continue Reading

Review and giveaway: Classy Cat Dishes

 cat_elevated_food_bowl

As far as product reviews go, reviewing the Classy Cat Dish was quite possibly one of Allegra and Ruby’s favorite projects. I used treats for the photo shoot, and it took several rounds to get some really good shots, so the two of them made out quite well!

I love everything about this food dish. For starters, it’s really pretty. My photos don’t do the soft marbled pink justice. The dish is shallow and wide, which makes it a perfect dish for cats, who don’t like it when their whiskers bump against the edge of a food bowl.

Allegra and Ruby give the Classy Cat Dish four paws up. They call it the “magic treat dish.”Continue Reading
