Sleepypod Go Bag

You must leave your house in a hurry because of an emergency and you find yourself scrambling to grab the essentials for yourself and your pet. You are traveling with your pet on vacation and need to pack supplies for the trip. Your pet needs to stay at the veterinarian for a couple of days and he asks you to bring food, treats, medication, and toys. Each of these scenarios required providing and packing supplies for your pet.

Catit® Dinners - Fine Dining for the Finickiest of Cats

Cats are obligate carnivores which means they need to eat meat! They are also know as finicky eaters. They may eat one brand/flavor one day and turn up their noses the next day. I learned a hard lesson with my previous Persian Cat about feeding a variety of food. The company changed the recipe and she was so finicky that she didn't want to eat anything but her treats. There is also the issues of cats eating when they are sick, especially with an Upper Respiratory Infection because they can't smell their food, so they don't eat, but they MUST eat!

PetSafe® Seaside Stainless Pet Fountain

It's summertime and it's time to remind people of the importance of keeping their cats hydrated. PetSafe has designated July as Pet Hydration Month. 80% of a cat's body is made up of water compared to 55-60% in a human. Cats need to drink one ounce of water per body weight each day. Getting proper hydration can help prevent urinary tract infections and urinary disease, aid with energy levels and temperature regulation, and speed recovery time from illness or surgery.

Calm in the Eye of the Storm (or Fireworks)

It's that time of the year again, especially in the South where we live. We tend to have daily thunderstorms during the summer afternoon and evenings and it's legal to shoot off fireworks in neighborhoods. Many cats (and dogs) don't react well to the loud noises and seek out hiding places or experience anxiety attacks. We're providing some tips to help your cats survive during this time of the year.

CozyUp™ Steps & Ramp Combo

We love having our pets near us in our homes, whether beside us on the couch or in the bed. However, as our pets get older, they tend to have more difficulty jumping up and down. In fact, we shouldn't allow our pets to jump so much as they get older to avoid any fractures. There are many products on the market to help dogs and cats get up to a couch or bed, but there is a new product available to offers both a ramp and steps in one.

We've been a fan of PetSafe and its products for a long time and love receiving new products to review and share with our readers.
