Massive Fun Adjustable Ball Track Cat Toy

Posted on 14 August 2018 in Interactive Cat Toys

This is a huge 16-foot long track toy for cats. The track comes with four balls that roll within the track and can be batted, hit, and stopped by paws, but not leave the track. The huge size of this fun flexible track toy means endless shape configurations and hours of fun!Our cats have a shorter, rigid track toy -- Catit Senses Circuit -- that gets regular play from two of our boys. They play with this toy on their own or with each other. They are rarely interested if we try to start the ball rolling (so to speak) but on their own, look out!

I'm sure they'd love this bigger, longer, more flexible version of a track toy too. The 16 feet of track consists of 164 pieces, making it totally flexible. It can be stacked in a figure-eight shape or other over-under configurations. It can be laid out in one huge circular shape or divided into two or more separate individual toys.

Posted on 5 June 2018 in Disposable Litter Boxes

Are you going to be traveling with your kitty this summer? Pack along a set of four biodegradable litter boxes for your on-the-road days to make travel easy and mess-free.

These pop up litter boxes are made of water-resistant recycled paper. They are disposable and biodegradable. Simply line the bottom with a minimum amount of litter and kitty will be good to go.

In an unfamiliar place (like a hotel room), kitty will appreciate the privacy and cozy atmosphere provided by the covered, walled litter box. In the rush and inconvenience of travel, you'll appreciate this easy and quick solution for temporary litter box needs.

Alternative Cat Bed: Doll Bunks

Posted on 24 April 2018 in Cat Beds

Have more than one cat? If they like to hang out together, they might like to nap together using this fun bunk bed made for American Girl dolls as a cozy two-for-one cat bed!

This is actually a set of two beds that are stackable. The beds are made of wood composite and come with doll bedding, including a soft pad base for each bunk. We have a similar single-bunk doll bed for our cats and we found that the addition of a folded fleece blanket makes the bed cozy and comfortable without bulking it up too much.

Just imagine how cute your two furry friends will look when they share their new piece of furniture!
