12 Days of Catmas - Petlinks®

Get Plenty of Exercise and Sleep!


The holidays can be an exciting time for cats and humans, but it's important to monitor your cats to see if they are getting enough exercise and sleep during this potentially stressful and tiring time.

Exercise


Sky Scratch


Truffle demonstrates a good stretch before playtime

Most cats are indoor only and don't have the opportunities to run and play outside. It's important for the caregivers to provide activities for cat to help them maintain a healthy body weight and to keep muscles toned and strong. To assist cats with exercise and play indoors, you can set up areas where your cat and stretch, romp around, and climb. Cats need to stretch just like humans and giving them a tall scratching post like the Sky Scratch™ from Petlinks® can assist with this. Having plenty of scratching posts in the home helps prevent cats from scratching on the furniture and those special holiday items you display. Scratching helps cats stretch, tone muscles and even helps alleviate stress. 



The Petlinks® Sky Scratch™ features an extra tall and wide post with both carpet and sisal. The base is 13.8" x 13.8" and 27" tall. As you can see in the video above, the scratching post is sturdy as Truffle is playing with the dangling feather. Both girls love this scratching post and it blends in well with the household decor. The post base and core are made from recycled paper pulp.


Sleep

Did you know that cats sleep as much as 16 hours a day and can spend more time at rest (up to 20 hours) as they age? Cats tend to snooze about 75% of this time. Snoozing allows them to get the rest they need, but helps them to remain alert enough to wake up at a moment's notice. Deep sleep accounts for the remaining 25%. Cats need deep sleep to help their body regenerate itself and stay healthy. It's important to provide a secure, comfortable, and trusted location for your cat to sleep because they are most vulnerable during this time. Providing a comfortable pet bed, such as the Petlinks® Supreme Soother Pet Bed or the Soothing Escape Pet Bed may help your feline snuggle in for that needed nap.


Soothing Escape Pet Bed

We received the Soothing Escape Pet Bed in the medium size for Truffle and Brulee to sample. This bed is a memory foam bed that can be used for dogs and cats. The Soothing Escape bed is a nest-style bed that is built with advanced, eco-sourced memory foam that conforms to your cat's body contours to support joints and relieve pressure points. The bed includes gel beads that keep your feline (or canine) cool throughout the day or night. The bolster sides are corduroy-lined. The zippered cover is removable for machine washing. This bed is available in two sizes: medium (24 x 23 x 6 inches) and large (32 x 31 x 8 inches).

Supreme Soother Pet Bed

Another pet bed you may want to provide for your feline (or canine) is the Petlinks® Supreme Soother Pet Bed. This pet bed is also a bolster bed that is built from advanced, eco-sourced memory foam with gel beads for cooling. It has a small opening where pet can walk into the bed for an easier entrance. This bed is available in two sizes: medium (28 x 21 x 7 inches) and large (42 x 30 x 10 inches). We received the large Supreme Soother pet bed to try out with our woofie cousins, Smokey and Angus, who are Australian Shepherds.

  15. The sisal rope around our lowest cat tree posts is wearing out. TBT says he will try to switch some posts. If he cant, he will re-wrap the posts. Oh joy, our Xmas presents might be 50 yards of sisal rope!

    (TBT here: it will be more than that. I have a new Ess hidden away, and a bucket of dried NIP to re-stuff the catmats. And a few rattley mousies...)

  16. Gee, with both dogs and cats at our house, we would love all three of the items here. I recently lost one of my dogs - my sweet girl Coonhound, Kyoko, and just put in an application to adopt another girl Coonhound. I've love the Supreme Soother Pet Bed in large for her.

  19. My cat is a former stray. Before we brought him into my house, he would fall asleep on my lap on the porch, but he was always on alert. I'm not sure he ever felt safe enough to go into a deep sleep. Now he can go into a deep sleep whenever he wants. I think he'd enjoy the supreme soother pet bed.

  20. You're right. We don't get nearly the exercise we should being indoors all the time. When we need to rest, though, we want sweet dreams and know we'll get them in either of the pet beds! ~ The supreme soother or the escape bed. Concats to the winner if it's not us and happy holidays, Truffle, Brulee and Paula!

  22. definitely the scratching post!! even though the bed is adorable. i think i have more of an obsession with the beds than my cats do!!! they have a ton of beds and they use the couch and my bed!!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Thanks for the opportunity to win one of these. This is such a hard choice! On one hand even though I have plenty of scratching posts, I love that this one has both sisal AND carpet. I never saw one like this. OTOH, I only use my igloo these days but that southing escape bed sounds dreamy. I would be happy with either but am leaning toward the bed. I may change my mind. I'm a cat.

  28. My 2 cats would enjoy all the items. I'm sure they would want the beds over the scratcher, but we have a billion beds in our house. Though it would be nice to have another scratcher because my one cat really, really likes to scratch. So annoying. Especially, when they have huge cat towers.

  40. I tried to comment from my phone, but it didn't seem like it went through, so I'm commenting again. (Please ignore if this is a duplicate!)
    I would love to win one of the beds for my dogs. Recently I realized that our current beds are a really past their usefulness, and Lilah in particular would probably like a soft bed with a bolster like the ones you're showing.
    Love your 12 Days of Catmas giveaways, BTW. Great products, creatively presented.

  45. Wow that is quite the stretch you have there Truffle! I like to scratch my post every day, but Mom says it is starting to look a little tired.
