This is a simple auto-feeder to use for feeding cats or other pets who are free-eaters. The clear food storage container can hold approximately 3 pounds of food at a time.
This food-safe plastic cat feeder is ideal to use for cats who prefer to be free-eaters. Some cats like to nibble on their food all day long and a feeder like this helps to keep the food fresh while providing a large amount of potential dry food to be available for a long period of time. This kind of feeder is also ideal in case of emergency short-term travel or when you need to leave home for a long time during a day.
The price on this item can vary; when it is available for less than $5 it is a very good deal. Read the reviews for this highly rated auto-feeder to learn what pet owners like you think about this convenient product.
I wanted to share this tutorial video I found on YouTube that I used to repair a part of our cat tree. Our three kitties are master sisal scratchers and they started to unravel the rope on one of the main posts of their favorite cat tree. We've had this tree for almost 6 years.
The cats use the tree for napping, scratching, and as the end point after a round of zoomies across the living room. It's held up remarkably well, except one of the lower sisal-covered legs started to unravel after years of constant use.
I looked into cat tree repair and most of the tutorials I found required the use of staples or glue, or both. I looked a little deeper and found this great tutorial that uses no tools. All I had to do was get some new sisal rope. Check out this tutorial.
In my case I was replacing sisal rope with more sisal rope, so my finished product left two longer strings dangling. I tied toys to both of them and almost immediately after I put the tree back upright, Gumby started playing with one of the toys. It's been a couple of months since I made the repair (it was an early quarantine project) and it's holding up very well.
This is a fun toy for cats who like to play with ball toys. This interactive cat toy has a lot going on! The rechargeable toy has a spinning LED light and the toy itself spins and rotates to entice your kitty to play.
This highly rated rechargeable interactive cat toy is ready for play with just an hour and a half of charge time. The toy then provides up to four hours of fun play on the single charge. An internal self-balancing system means the toy will change direction when it comes into contact with objects like furniture and walls. The random nature of the movement is very enticing for cat play.
It's a good practice to keep kitty litter boxes clean with regular scooping. Keeping the catbox free of waste makes your cat happy and keeps your home cleaner and odor-free. But regular scooping might mean using a lot of plastic bags if that is your preferred waste collection measure. Why not try out using compostable bags to help lessen your impact on the environment as you care for your pet?
With this purchase you'll get 240 small compostable "poop bags". These are advertised as dog poop bags but we have been using these small bags for our cat boxes for the last year or so and we find them to be a great size for handling and for regular use. We can use an oversized scoop and it fits into the mouth of the bag without issue.
These unscented pet waste bags are highly rated by other users, too. The bags claim to be 100% compostable and biodegradable. In our experience they feel much like plastic bags and perform like plastic bags, without breaking down in the week or so we might have them in our trash receptacle until trash day.
This is a cute little piece of cat furniture from AmazonBasics. The unit has a 360 degree round scratching post with a cozy round plush bed on top. The post rests on a stable square stand.
This small and affordable cat furniture is a cute addition to your cat's life. New items add enrichment to a pet's life at home. This highly-rated cat furniture has a single-pillar scratching post with both carpet and jute fiber scratching substrate. The plush bed on top is easy to access and comfortable. The post and bed come in a neutral color scheme of grays, ideal to fit into a wide variety of home decor and to blend into a lot of cat coat types.
This is a fun interactive toy to play with your cat. This kind of toy, which encourages fetching, is great for those cats who like to catch objects and bring them back to you.
With this purchase you'll get a set of 5 flying propeller cat toys in various colors. The toys come with a small shot device that projects the little toys for your cat to chase, catch, and hopefully return to you.
As you might imagine, this cat toy gets mixed reviews from pet owners. Some users report their cats love the chase aspect of this toy, while others report disinterest in their kitties. Some pet owners have had fun playing this with their small dogs as well, and even some users' children had fun with this toy. So if you think your cat might like it, give it a try. If kitty isn't interested, maybe your pooch or human kids can have some fun.
The last Saturday of April is marked as World Veterinary Day. We celebrate our veterinary professionals on this day, first noted by the World Veterinary Association in 2000.
While we always appreciate the health of our pets, and the help and care they receive from veterinary professionals, today especially we'll think about their important work.
Let's raise a virtual catnip toy today to honor all of the veterinarians that have helped our cats throughout the year!
Today, April 24, is recognized as National Hairball Awareness Day. This "holiday" is "celebrated" annually on the last Friday in April. I think most cat owners are aware of hairballs without having to mark a special date on the calendar. The day is listed along with many other such awareness campaigns on the AVMA Veterinary Awareness Events page.
In our house, we are very lucky to have minimal problems with hairballs between our three boys.
With our previous long-haired tuxedo Arby, it was a regular battle that we fought with periodic doses of hairball preventative gels. Here's a photo of our sweet tuxedo boy enjoying a face-plant nap in a cat bed.
Hopefully you are among the lucky cat owners who hasn't had to think about hairballs until being reminded by this annual event!
This is a great convertible cat carrier that is both airline approved and conveniently expandable to provide extra space while keeping your kitty safe.
This is a soft-sided cat carrier that, when the expansion areas are closed, is approved for many airlines for in-cabin travel.
The great benefit of this carrier is that it can expand to provide extra space for your kitty to stretch out and move around. The sides have two expansion areas that can be accessed by zipper. A short tunnel can also expand out from another side to give kitty even more space.
Using these expansion areas is great to use when you are expecting to have to wait in place for some time, like at the airport before boarding your flight, or in the waiting room at the vet before the appointment begins, or in hotel rooms when you cat needs to stay secured for her own safety.
Today, April 11, is National Pet Day. While this may not be a major, widely-recognized holiday, the love we have for our companion animals is worth celebrating every day.
Especially in the current Covid-19 pandemic crisis facing everyone on this planet, pets can provide their owners with much-needed emotional support and cherished companionship.
I know our cats have been providing essential services: comforting snuggles and improv comedy entertainment are helping us tremendously as we stay #saferathome. On behalf of our three sweeties here at home, we wish everyone a very happy National Pet Day!
