Check Your Cat’s Health from Home!

Standard

We know our cats can suffer from ailments and that they can be very difficult to detect since most cats are stoic.  Now there is an easy way to frequently monitor your cat’s wellness and vitality between visits to the vet.

The CheckUp Home Cat Wellness Kit is designed to detect four common health problems in cats.

The Kit includes everything you need to collect a urine sample from your cat. The special hydroponic sand included with the kit will bead up the urine for testing. It is then placed into the included vial for testing. The test strips provide immediate results, similar to a home pregnancy test.

“My two cats love the Kittywalk Lawn Pet Enclosure.  They are not declawed, but they have not tried to climb out or destroy the netting.  I don’t let them in the Kittywalk unattended, but it is so nice to relax outdoors and watch them sniffing and enjoying the fresh air.  They tried to push at the netting in the beginning, but they were not able to get out and the netting is still in great shape.”

Eyenimal Pet Electronic Flea Comb

Standard

Effective Pet Flea Treatment without Harmful Medications

It’s that time of year again when fleas and ticks will be a problem for your cat or dog. It’s a tough situation because you want to make sure your pets are free of pests, but you don’t want to endanger their health with chemical treatments. What should you do?

Fighting off an infestation of fleas on your pet can be an ongoing battle. Most flea combs are great at pulling out flea eggs, but when a flea gets caught in the comb, they can jump off before you can kill them, and then re-infest your dog, cat or house. Traditional flea medications and topical treatments are generally effective but can be messy and harmful to the environment and to your pet.

N-4128-Eyenimal-Electronic-Flea-CombEyenimal has invented a lethal weapon that is deadly to fleas but completely painless and harmless to your pet. The Eyenimal Electronic Flea Comb is an electronic flea comb that generates a mild electronic tension when it comes in contact with fleas and parasites.

As there is no active ingredient used, you can use it over and over again. It couldn’t be easier! Plus it is fun to use!  N-4128-Eyenimal-Electronic-Flea-Comb

Topical flea medications may be harmful to your pet, so using the Eyenimal Electronic Flea Comb is a safe alternative.  It can be a safe and effective form of flea control for both cats and dogs.  The Eyenimal Electronic Flea Comb can be purchased online at ShopForPuppy.com, where a portion from each sale will be donated to Rescue.

Eyenimal Electronic Pet Feeder

Standard

Eyenimal Electronic Pet Feeder is an automatic feeder that can be programmed to feed your cat or dog in a very precise way.  Many vets recommend at least two meals per day for your pets, especially dog breeds that are susceptible to bloat or gastric torsion.  If you have a busy lifestyle and are on the go throughout the day, it can be difficult to keep your pet on his feeding schedule.  Some people will allow their cat or dog free access to food, but free choice feeding can lead to overeating and obesity.  The solution is having a system that can dispense he allotted amount of pet food at the scheduled time.

Should You Let Your Indoor Cat Outdoors?

Standard

I surfed upon an article written by Dr. Karen Becker about the need for cats to enjoy the outdoors and the sunshine. Your indoor cat easily get bored, and boredom leads to frustration. The issue is that there are dangers lurking outdoors if a cat is left out unattended. Traffic, exposure to disease, and human and animal predators are just a few of the dangers. Yet there are many benefits to outdoor adventures with your favorite feline.

“Oftentimes, pets in the U.S. end up overweight, super bored, and even – I think – borderline depressed, because they’re just kind of held captive in our homes,” Dr. Becker said. 

“Now, I’m not advocating that all house cats be released to the outside, but we do advocate taking kitties outside in harnesses or outdoor caging. There are some neat and really inventive ways that you can help kitties get indoor-outdoor exercise without putting them at risk for disease or predation. Responsibly allowing your kitty outside means you stay with your pet – who is of course spayed or neutered so as not to add to the overpopulation issue – and protect her from any potential danger.”

AiKiou Stimulo Cat Interactive Feeder

Standard

Cats are prey animals and have a natural instinct to hunt, stalk and find food.  The AiKiou (pronounced IQ) Stimulo Interactive Cat Feeder was designed to stimulate your cat’s natural instincts and alleviate boredom.

AiKiou Stimulo Interactive Cat Feeder

AiKiou Stimulo Interactive Cat Feeder

The Stimulo allows you to increase or decrease the level of difficulty for your cat, depending on their individual requirements.  The configuration can be changed on a daily or weekly basis for added mental stimulation.  The Stimulo acts as a puzzle and will keep your inquisitive felines entertained.   It will also help keep them trim, as they won’t be able to devour a full meal in minutes.  An interactive food puzzle will force them to eat slower, thus aid in digestion.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The Stimulo utilizes the concept of a cat tube feeder, utilizing multiple openings where you can spread and hide the food.  The tubes were designed with round bottoms so that any cat can use it, clawed or declawed.  The Stimulo has 9 different openings that are adjustable with different tube lengths.  Cats like to search for a mouse in its hole, so pawing through the tubes is a natural game for the cat.

To see the AiKiou Stimulo in action, watch this short YouTube video!  We are sure your cats will love this feeder.

The Stimulo has 9 openings and can hold up to 4 – 5 cups of dry cat food for a multiple cat household. It is good for cats of all sizes, including Maine Coon cats.  Cats that have been de-clawed can also enjoy the feeder, as the bottoms are round so they can pull out food as easily as a cat with claws.

The Stimulo can be purchased online at ShopForPuppy.com, where we donate a portion of each sale to cat rescues and shelters.  For an additional $5.00 off each feeder, use the Coupon Code “AIKIOU-5” during checkout at ShopForPuppy.com.

K&H Kitty Sills – Heated and Unheated

Standard

These are a great idea for the beloved cats in your home.  We all know that cats love to perch, and inside cats enjoy spending time relaxing and basking in the sun while watching the world outdoors.  The Kitty Sills from K&H Pet Products give your cat a nice place to relax, while giving them the opportunity to keep an eye on the sights and sounds outdoors.

K&H Kitty Sill

K&H Kitty Sill

The Kitty Sills come in two varieties:  heated and unheated.  Both have removable covers so that they can be easily washed.  The neat thing about them is that they are great for cats living in apartments or for those people who aren’t handy with tools (like me).  No tools are needed for installation when using the Velcro-like fasteners.  This means you can install the Kitty Sills without the use of hand tools or drilling.  For apartment dwellers, they can be installed through velcro strips so that you do not violate the terms of your lease.  Some landlords don’t allow tenants to drill holes or make other permanent changes.  Screws are also included for those who prefer a more permanent installation.

The Kitty Sills are engineered for extreme strength and easy assembly.  They can hold up to 40 pounds, so even large cats aren’t a problem.  The ultra-comfortable orthopedic foam and super soft fleece cover provide your cat with ultimate comfort while sunbathing in your window sill.

The Heated Thermo-Kitty Sill has a removable heater that provides extra warmth your cat craves.  The internal thermostats warm to your cat’s body temperature when in use.  Even without the heater, the Kitty Sill will be a favorite place for your cat to bask in the warming rays of the sun.  They will make a great gift for the cat lover in your family!

The Unheated Kitty Sill and the Thermo Kitty Sill can be purchased online at ShopForPuppy.com, where a portion of all revenue is donated towards helping pets in need.  Thank you for your support!
