Cheristin is an effective topical solution for the treatment and prevention of fleas in cats and kittens at least 8 weeks of age. This external flea treatment is effective in killing 98-100% of all fleas on your pet within 12 hours. Use Cheristin every month to keep your pet healthy and free of fleas.
The non-prescription anti-flea treatment medication is highly rated by cat owners. Many have found it to be more effective than other popular brands, including Advantage, Revolution, and Frontline.
Using a topical treatment like this is a great option for owners who don't want to medicate their pets with anti-flea pills.
This box of Cheristin has six doses for six months of flea-free living for your feline companion. The doses are individually measured into single-use, easy-to-use and gentle applicators.
Make your life easier with this uniquely shaped litter box scoop. Instead of a rounded or squared off outer edge, here the outside of the scoop comes to a 90-degree corner, enabling whoever has scooping duty to reach into litter box corners with a lot less effort!
This sturdy black plastic scoop was designed to pick up pet waste in terrariums, so the mesh holes are smaller than in most traditional cat litter scoops. If you're tired of your scoop missing chunks as you scoop, a smaller mesh might be just what you're looking for!
Cat owners have been singing the praises of this terrarium corner scoop for years -- it was first featured on this blog back in 2015! Don't be afraid to think outside the box (heh) and use whatever works best for your needs. A special corner-shaped, small-mesh scoop like this might be just what you need. This scoop is so affordable it's worth it to give it a try!

The ZoomGroom massaging brush does two things very well. It removes hair from your pet, and it massages your pet's skin, making him or her want to come back for more.
The ZoomGroom for cats is a soft rubber brushing massager in the shape of a sitting cat. The flexible rubber fingers coax hair away from your cat and keep it within the brush for easy clean-up. The fat fingers provide a perfect surface to maximize massaging pleasure as you groom your kitty.
The ZoomGroom is an extremely highly rated cat grooming product -- check out the reviews and get this for your feline companion. It's also been an affordable best-seller for years (first featured on this blog back in 2015!). Kitty will love it!
As we forged our way through another year of the pandemic, our cats continued to provide important services: comfort, entertainment, the medicine of laughter. Here are our best-selling items for your cats from 2021.
It may be marketed as a kitchen implement, but it's our best-seller from last year. This type of alternative litter pan has been at the top of our list a few years now. The sturdy pan is easy to clean and the perfect size for many cats and their owners. Just read the reviews and you'll find you're not alone in using this steaming pan as a litter box.
Money-Saving Tip: see if the pan is available via Amazon Warehouse. These are typically returns and may come slightly damaged, but does your cat need a complete dimple-free box? You could save some cash by checking out Amazon Warehouse!
This popular pick has been on our top list before, too. It lets kitty give himself or herself a good, satisfying scratch all on his or her own. We have a self-groomer like this on attached to a shelving unit in my office and William loves to use it to scratch his cheeks. Gumby enjoys it as well, though he's not in my office quite as much as Will.
Turn any kind of solid tray into an ant-proof feeding tray with these adhesive legs. Stick the legs into four corners of a tray, apply the included BugSnub gel to the legs, for an ant-proof solution. This is a highly rated product that has helped countless pet owners with invading ants around cat food and elsewhere.
This best-selling toy has a lot going on to make it enticing and fun for cats. The spool-shaped toy rolls and wobbles, fun for chasing. The spool has a thick string attached, with part of the string loose and ready to attack, bat, and chew. And this toy is infused with catnip, which will bring curious cats to the toy in the first place. This toy is just one of several offered by Petstages on this listing. We have had the Catnip Rolls in our cat toy basket since December, 2015 (!!!, thank you Amazon history), and they still get some play, especially from Timmy.
A skirt hides the motion mechanism on this funny interactive cat toy. The feather toy moves in unpredictable ways, triggering your cat's natural hunting instincts as it imitates real prey. The motion of the toy can be set to four different speed options to best suit the activity and interest of your pet. Several other similar concealed motion toys were popular last year. See other options below.
Raised food bowls like this one can help to reduce body stress when eating. Our boy Gumby has some food regurgitation issues that are greatly mitigated by using a bowl just like this one. This particular bowl is extra wide and shallow (best for avoiding whisker fatigue), sitting on a stable elevated base. The bowl is made of porcelain and is both dishwasher and microwave safe.
This is a small affordable self-groomer / massager for cats that you install using adhesive pads. This particular unit is great because you can attach it to a flat wall or a corner -- whatever will work best for you and your cat.
I think a self-groomer like this is great for all cats, but it's really a must for long-haired cats. Our long-haired tuxedo cat Arby loved the corner unit we had set up for him. Any extra "brushing" a long-haired cat can take care of him- or herself is a bit of a time-saver for you and a big source of pleasure for your kitty.
These idea behind these wall-mounted brushes is that they have small plastic bristles that the cat can rub its face or body against. You can place this unit around a favorite corner or on a flat piece of wall. This brush from Catit has the extra benefit for you that the brush snaps out of the frame for easy clean-up and hair removal.
Now, all cats aren't the same, and the perfect product for one cat may go completely ignored by others. I would say that if your cat loves to have its cheeks, forehead, or chin rubbed when you are petting him or her, this product will be a big hit with your cat. This brush also comes with pockets and catnip -- add the nip to the pocket and hopefully your cat will come running to check it out!
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-quality 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!
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 four step stairs, at a height of 18 inches is shown here in black.
