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.

Hug Your Cat Day

Today is International Hug Your Cat Day. I love hugging Truffle and Brulee (when they will let me) because they are so soft and many times they will begin purring and it's so calming.
