The Cat Power Tower will play with the cat when you’re away

by Caitlyn - on April 22nd, 2014


When you have a pet, you oftentimes get very attached. Toys, special food, and plenty of treats are bought to keep them happy and healthy. However, they need lots of attention in the same way humans do, and if you’re at work for a large portion of the day, it can be worrisome that they’re getting bored.

Flea Killing Pet Comb gets rid of them critters

by Edwin - on April 17th, 2014

flea-killing-pet-combWhen you happen to have a dog, it is imperative that one be a responsible pet owner and give that dog what it deserves – a number of square meals each day depending on its age, breed and activity level, daily walks and exercise, some play time, as well as the customary visit to the vet for all of its shots, not to mention getting a bath from time to time to make sure that it remains nice and clean. Ah yes, keeping it free from fleas and ticks, too, is something that some folks overlook. Combing your dog’s coat each day will not only ensure it does not end up in a tangled mess, especially for those long haired breeds, it also helps you bond with your pooch and weed out nasty ticks and fleas (with the right comb, of course). Why not go the extra mile and get the $39.95 Flea Killing Pet Comb instead?

This is a cordless device that will emit a low voltage whenever it is combed through a pet’s coat, helping kill fleas on contact. I do wonder whether we will hear those nasty zapping sounds whenever an electrified fly swatter is used to zap mosquitoes and the like, but chances are the voltage is too small to emit such a loud sound. The Flea Killing Pet Comb has been certified to be used safely on cats and dogs regardless of their age and size. I like the fact that this can zap fleas without having to rely on chemicals that could result in an allergic reaction. All fleas will be trapped on the comb for easy disposal afterwards when you clean it, and do keep a pair of AA batteries around handy as a backup.

Litter Kwitter for households with a kitty

by Edwin - on April 10th, 2014

litter-kwitterOne can say that the world is divided into two different groups – one that loves cats, while the other would any day prefer the companionship of a dog. If you happen to fall into the former category, you might want to check out the £39.99 Litter Kwitter that is a slightly more advanced litter box than what most people would normally use. Basically, the Litter Kwitter is a tool that will hopefully teach your cat to do it’s business like a dignified human.

Forget about cleaning out the litter tray every single day, where the Litter Kwitter happens to be a radical 3-step training system that will help you teach your kitty to hop up on the toilet and poop onto the Litter Kwitter itself. Once done, all you need to do is flush, and even better is, you no longer need to purchase additional kitty litter which ought to help you save more money in the long run, not to mention the environment as well. Now, if only cats could be taught to know how to flush once they’re done…

Tagg – Helps you Find your Dog, and Helps your Dog Find Love…

If you’re a dog lover, you know that there’s nothing that you want more, than your best friends happiness. Sure you rub their bellies, give them treats, take them for long walks in the moonlight, but let’s face it… it’s highly likely that your sidekick is lacking in a certain kind of companionship, you know, the doggie kind. Is it fair to deny your pooch a soulmate? I understand that the chance for love to blossom with another canine may not have crossed your mind, but I’ll bet Fido has tossed the idea around a fair bit. Doesn’t he deserve someone to love too?

The Litter Robot – Keep the Cat, Lose the Odor

by Julie

I like cats. I’d have to say I’m a dog-person, but cats make exceptionally good companions, and for the most part they seem to require a lot less from us than our canine friends. That being said, there is nothing worse than a kitty litter box. The smell is unmistakable, the cleaning and used litter issues make me nuts. I read somewhere you can train your cat to use the toilet, even flush! My cat’s not having it…

Microchip Activated Pet Feeder makes Fido more independent

by Edwin

microchip-feederHaving a pet would mean being responsible for its health and overall well being, and this includes feeding it the recommended amount of food daily. However, there are times when we actually need to be away from the home longer than usual due to an impending deadline at the office, what are you to do to make sure that your pooch or kitty does not get hungry? Self-feeding machines that work using a timer might be a good idea, but the $79.95 Microchip Activated Pet Feeder could be more practical.

Basically, the Microchip Activated Pet Feeder happens to be a lidded pet bowl which will automatically open only when the intended pet approaches, which means that other dogs or cats in the house will not be able to obtain the food there. The included microchip tag would be attached to the pet’s collar, where it will transmit an infrared signal which opens the lid of the bowl whenever the pet comes within a 2′ distance. As the pet walks away, the lid will close. The microchip within happens to be a water-resistant, locket-sized plastic case which will not interfere with the pet’s normal movements. This might not be a good idea with breeds like the Labrador Retriever as it figures out quickly that being near the bowl would equal to food, and knowing its appetite, your food might not last it through a single meal time.

Wouldn’t it be fun to live the country life, and be able to walk to your backyard in the morning to gather your very own farm fresh eggs? Well, the folks over at Brookstone think it would be…

I sure know a lot of folks who consider themselves “dog people” and there truly is something to be said about the unconditional love of a pet… coming home at the end of a long day and being greeted enthusiastically by your furry friend. But what’s your buddy doing all day while you’re gone? Have you set him up to be entertained while you’re away?
