Posted on 28 March 2017 in Catnip Toys

Look at this cute soft little teddy bear designed for little kittens! Isn't it adorable? Some of our cats' favorite toys came from Kong when they were kittens.

Laxatone Hairball Remedy: Tuna Flavor

Posted on 14 March 2017 in Hairball Remedy

In the past we had a beautiful male tuxedo cat named Arby. He had gorgeous long hair, which unfortunately made him prone to have hairballs. Laxatone-type products were helpful in keeping his problem under control. This is a tube of Laxatone with tuna flavoring made just for cats.

Laxatone works as a sort of lubricant to help cats pass ingested hair without creating hairballs. The gentle formula has been used for over 40 years with great success. We would simply apply a bit of the remedy to our finger and let Arby lick it right off. The tuna flavoring really helps and although we consider it to be medicine, Arby thought it was a treat!

If you've got a cat that is prone to have hairballs, give Laxatone a try for some relief.

Kitty Convict ID Collar for Indoor Cats

Posted on 28 February 2017 in Break-away Collars

This is the perfect ID collar for your indoor kitty. The Kitty Convict Project is designed to keep indoor kitties safe by identifying them with a recognizable collar in case of escape outdoors. Finders will know that your kitty doesn't belong outside!

This is a high-quality orange cat collar with a safety breakaway buckle. The orange collar is reflective and easy to see in different light conditions, to aid in searching in case kitty escapes. The orange collar is also meant to be a recognizable symbol of an indoor cat that has escaped -- the orange color of a convict.

There are two affordable options with the Kitty Convict ID collar. You can get an embroidered collar with custom text of your cat's name and your phone number. The other option is an unembroidered collar with custom text including your cat's name and your contact information on one side. The other side of the tag indicates that the wearer is a "Kitty Convict" that needs to be returned home.

This collar is a great extra protection for you and your indoor cat in case kitty ever escapes.
