It’s been a while since I’ve mentioned Eye Envy, but their tear stain removal application powder (and really their whole tear stain removal set) is still an admirable product. It’s perfect for dogs with white or light fur and suffer from tear stains. It’s externally applied, so you don’t need to worry about starting your pet on a medication or how it’ll react with anything else your fur baby might be taking. There’s also no bleaching agents or peroxide to irritate your pets’ eyes. While the powder can work by itself, the results will be cleaner and quicker when used in conjunction with the tear stain remover solution for dogs or cats.
Next up is some cat toys from Yeowww! Which is probably one of the most humor-centered cat toy companies I’ve worked with. Of course that means I’m a little biased towards them....who doesn’t love a good laugh, after all? This week I worked with a 2-pack set of three catnip toys (so six toys total, if you can parse all that out). Including two bananas, two cigars, and two rainbows all made with sturdy cotton twill and fulfilling Yeowww!s promise of stuffing their toys to the brim with 100% organic catnip.
Last is Peter Pads. For those pets who struggle with their bladders a bit more or are prone to marking, it’s nice to have a comfortable option that’ll keep your floors clean and allow you to take your pet out to enjoy the world still. These machine washable, absorbent cotton-filled versions are made of soft suede on the outside and put a fun twist on it by adding a funky cartoon silhouette of a skull and crossbones on one pad in the three pack. They secure and adjust to fit with a velcro closure.
Behind the US, which country would you peg next for owning the most dogs? It might surprise you to find out that 2nd place goes to Brazil. It might surprise you even more, however, to find out who isn't that far behind with 3rd place. China. I mean, yes they have the worlds largest population, more than [...]
Microfiber is great. I have a blanket made of the stuff that's just the most comfortable thing in the world, my bathmat is made of it, and it's ridiculously soft on my feet with the added benefit of making sure I don't drip all over the floor, which would surely lead to a terrible accident. [...]
The sound of purring as you stroke your kitty's fur...it's one of the most comforting sounds in the world and it's all to easy to be tempted to take a 'cat nap' when they crawl into your arms and fall asleep there themselves. Rubbing against your leg affectionately as you make dinner or are walking [...]
Travelling with pets can be a hassle, and some cities can be better than others for traveling with pets. There's hotels and dog parks and access to emergency vets that you all have to consider. And sometimes you need to worry about flying, too. None of that is particularly fun, but traveling itself is, and [...]
Ever thought to combine art, fish, and pet toys? No? Don't worry, I didn't either. Which is why it stuck out when I was working with it last week. This is a catnip toy from Yeowww! (still one of the most humorous company names I've heard to date) that's a pollock designed to resemble a Pollock. [...]
If you've ever noticed your cat or another cat munching on grass you might ask yourself why. Why do cats eat grass? They're obligate carnivores, and cannot survive a meatless diet, so why do they get the munchies for grass? The fun answer is: no one really knows. There's a few theories going around, but [...]
I love it when practical things can go with the decor. You can't get around the fact that if you have a pet, you need an eating and drinking bowl. But when I lived in my previous apartment my roommate had a cat. Their dishes were cute, but the cat would keep pulling them out [...]
It's suspected that cats were first domesticated around 12,000 years ago, right as the first agricultural societies began to take hold in the Middle East. They were domesticated after dogs, since dogs were needed for their hunting abilities, and cats were needed to keep pests out of food stores once agriculture took its place as the root [...]
We have some curious phrases surrounding cats. "Look at what the cat dragged in" "Curiousity killed the cat" and "The cat's out of the bag" for starters, but perhaps the strangest is the phrase "The cat's pajama's." One doesn't generally expect a cat to wear pajamas, they sleep so much throughout the day that it would [...]
