Sleepypod Martingale Cat Harness and Slim Leash

Today is the World's Largest Pet Walk sponsored by Pet Partners. This event is for everyone who wants to enjoy the health benefits of being active with pets, while also supporting Pet Partners! People may assume this day is for people who walk their dogs, but more and more people are taking their cats outdoors on leashes to experience the fresh air and to get exercise. In fact, cats who experience the great outdoors with their humans are known as "Adventure Cats." In addition to enjoying the outdoors, people travel with their pets on planes and in cars. For all of these occasions, it's important to consider training your cat to wear a halter in cases of emergencies to help to keep them from escaping. There are many different styles of harnesses that are used for cats and the challenge is to find one that is comfortable and safe for your cats.

Catit® Gold Fern™ Air-Dried Food

Cats are obligate carnivores, which means they need to eat meat! A common understanding is that dry kibble isn't the best source of protein for cats and most people will supplement with wet food or raw feeding. Wet Food/Raw Feeding can be expensive and difficult to leave out for the "nibblers" in the home. We were excited to find a "dry" food that is made with protein as the major source and is air-dried.

Tips for Choosing a Veterinarian for Your Cat

We recently celebrated Take Your Cat to the Vet Day on August 22. We've share many times the importance of taking your cat veterinarian for wellness checkups. Some people will take their cat to the veterinarian who previously examined your cat from the location where your kitten/cat was purchased or adopted from. What if that veterinarian isn't available or too far away? What do you do to help find a veterinarian who both you and your cats are comfortable with?Silver shaded Persian being examined by vet

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.
