With a name like Midnight Crazies, you know this cat toy bundle will be a hit with kitties who love to play at any time of day or night!
Check out this affordable multi-pack of cat toys that's highly rated by Amazon users and their cats. This is a bundle of seven cat toys that rattle when they roll. The open balls make an enticing noise when they are rolled, batted, or tossed across the floor.
The balls are about the size of ping-pong balls and the enticing cut-outs make the rattling jingle bell inside visible for extra stimulation. The slots also makes the balls easy to carry in small cat mouths, if your kitties like that kind of play like ours do.
A device made for slowing down your pet's eating process can be a life-saver for cats that chow down their food too fast. Products like this Interactive Slow Pet Feeder from Northmate are designed to make feeding time less stressful and speedy, as well as more interesting and engaging.
Fast eating sometimes leads to vomiting. This type of binge-and-purge eating is unhealthy for kitty. This slow feeder has a forest of rounded plastic protrusions on a sturdy base. When your cat's food is distributed on the device, feeding time becomes an interesting challenge and a slower process. This product helps alleviate boredom by making mealtime a challenging game with food as a reward for success. Kitty finds food among the protrusions and captures them with her paw, simulating wild hunting behavior.
If you need to have a collar on your cat, a breakaway buckle is a must. Breakaway collars are designed to stay on your cat, but will break apart if your cat gets stuck on an obstacle. This breakaway collar is adjustable not only in size but also in the breakaway weight load. This is great for growing young cats!
I think this adjustable breakaway buckle is a great idea. We keep collars on our two orange tabbies. Timmy and William are brothers and while we can tell who is who when looking at their faces, from any other angle they are very hard to tell apart. Timmy wears a blue collar and William wears an orange collar. We put collars on them when they were kittens, but the breakaway buckle was rated for a heavier cat, so I had to "adjust" the buckles by breaking them a bit. It worked for us at the time, and the same collars are still going strong, but if I had known about adjustable buckles on collars, like this one, I sure would have given them a try.

If your feline pal is an older kitty, or has health issues that keep the extra spring out of his or her step, consider getting a set of pet stairs like these to make kitty's life more comfortable.
Pet steps can be placed near your pet's favorite elevated spots, like your bed, window perches, the couch, and elsewhere. These steps can be used instead of jumping up to higher spots, which may be difficult for older cats. Jumping down from the bed, couch, or other perching spot always puts extra pressure on joints, no matter your cat's age or general health.
These steps come in three different heights so you can get the size that best matches your pet's favorite places. The foam steps are comfortable and light, and come in two different color patterns (beige or black). The shortest, three step stairs, at a height of 13 inches, is shown here in black.

Mange is a skin disease caused by mites. Mange can be fairly common in dogs, but it can also be found in cats. Finding the right treatment when your cat has mange is important; a common treatment is actually toxic to cats.
Demodectic mange, also known as red mange, is caused by Demodex canis mites. These mites are typically found on dogs and do not affect cats.
Cats can suffer from sarcoptic mange (as can dogs). This skin condition is caused by burrowing mites and is also known by the name scabies. Infection from the burrowing mites causes hair loss, itching, and crusting of the skin. In short, it's a very unpleasant condition from which to suffer.
One of the most common treatments for scabies in dogs is the use of topical permethrin. This synthetic chemical is very effective in the treatment of mange in dogs, but it is toxic to cats.
EcoSpot from Vet Organics is a safe product to use on cats to combat skin affected by mange. The topical no-touch spray also treats hot spots, sores, and skin rashes. The treatment, which you spray directly on the infected area, acts to clean in disinfect your pet's trouble spots. The natural treatment kills bacteria and mange mites while remaining safe to use on your pet.
What do you look for in a litter box mat? It's got one main job: to keep litter from scattering all over the place. It would also be nice if it didn't clash with its surroundings, and it fit snugly in the space it needs to fill. Instead of buying a "litter box mat", which may or may not fulfill any of these criteria, consider using a yoga mat!
Color: Advantage Yoga Mat
Yoga mats, like the one pictured here from Sunny Health and Fitness, typically come in a variety of colors. Litter box mats often come in muted colors, which is fine, but isn't it fun to pick out something a little more interesting? You can pick the shade that will match your cat's litterbox, or your bathroom, your laundry room, or wherever you've got kitty's box.
Size: Advantage Yoga Mat
Another advantage of using a yoga mat instead of a purpose-built litter box mat is the typical size difference. This particular yoga mat measures 24" by 68", which is a lot longer than the typical litter box mat. When you purchase an affordable yoga mat, you won't have any problem cutting it into the perfect size and shape for your space.
Litter-Catching: Advantage Yoga Mat
The material used to make yoga mats is a comfortable, thick non-slip PVC foam. The key here is the phrase non-slip. Yoga mats are made to stay in place and help you stay in place while you practice various yoga poses. This gives them a grippy surface that is perfect for catching little pieces of litter at the bottom of your kitty's paws as he or she walks over it. The surface is solid and dry, though, so you can easily brush or sweep up the caught litter.
Cats love to find hiding places and their natural curiosity gives them a desire to explore. Large interactive toys like this fun tunnel fulfill these natural cat tendencies.
This Fun Tunnel from ABO Gear is a large tube that measures over 50 inches long when fully extended. The tunnel is open on both ends and there are two portholes for a quick escape or an unexpected mid-tunnel pounce. The tunnel is lined with a faux fur interior and has a stylish cat-themed leopard print on the outside. The tunnel has a crinkly lining that makes crunchy noises when touched, which is interesting and exciting to many cats.
We have a tunnel similar to this one and our two younger cats, Timmy and William, absolutely love it. They bring toys inside with them - their favorite combination is to bring a crinkly toy inside the crinkle tunnel and make a cacophony of crunchy noises. Our older kitty, Gumby, isn't a big fan of the crunch sound. Not all cats are. He likes to play with his mates though, and he's been in and out of the tunnel a few times while chasing the others. As a larger cat (13+ lbs), he fits in our similar tunnel just fine. This tunnel from ABO Gear is also appropriate for cats in this size range.
Long play tunnels like this are a fun toy for single cats to use as a hideaway or a spot for creative play. Play tunnels are also a hit in multi-cat families. The access holes midway through the tunnel are perfect for sneaky attacks and quick getaways when playmates are having fun together.
Save your back with an extremely long-handled litter box scooper like this unit from Sand Dipper. The handle is over 2 feet long!
This is a serious litter box scooper. The basket is made of stainless steel mesh and the pole is lightweight -- similar to a ski pole. A loop on the end makes it easy to hang up for storage. It even comes with a one year warranty!
The high-quailty materials aren't even the big draw with this litter box scoop. Look at that handle! The pole is over 24 inches long, with a total reach (pole end to basket end) of 27 inches. Save your back with this long scooper! You'll also be able to avoid inhaling litter dust when you use a longer scoop like this one.
The Sand Dipper Jr was actually initially designed for beachcombers -- the original idea for this product was to sift through a totally different kind of sand!
