Benefits of Wet Cat Food

Do you have a cat who needs more water in her diet? Are you having difficulty getting her to drink water? How can you help your cat stay hydrated?

We've talked about the importance of hydration in your cat's life several times in the past. We live in the Deep South where it is hot and humid for several months out of the year. Truffle also had bladder stones which required surgery, so she needs to get a lot of water in her diet.

Maintaining Hydration and Health

July is the month we recognize Pet Hydration Month. It's important to keep your cats (and other pets) hydrated during the hot summer months to keep them healthy, happy, and cool. We've share numerous photos over the years of Truffle and Brulee drinking from one of the pet fountains throughout our home. Since Truffle had surgery to remove bladder stones last year, keeping her hydrated with plenty of water is of the utmost importance!

Yaheetech Cat Tree Review

Cats are much safer indoors away from wild animals, dogs, cars, and other dangerous things. However, cats still have a need to climb, play, and hide. One way to accomplish this is to have a cat tree in your home.

There are so many types of cat trees for people to choose for their felines. The size, type of materials, scratching areas, places to hide, and price vary from brand to brand.

Strategies for Helping Your Cat Remain Calm

It's that time of the year again! Loud noises from thunderstorms and fireworks are permeating our quiet little home and the cats are finding sanctuary under the bed.

I’ve already heard some fireworks blasting in my neighborhood this week, which gave me reason to pause and think about meeting the needs of my cats when the larger explosions occur later this holiday weekend.
