Then there's always the garbage "toys". They love the fun size candy wrappers, plastic milk sealers, the plastic part that gets wrapped around the caps on bottles, empty boxes. For a while, this place looked like a dump because I just couldn't throw anything away because the cats were so cute playing with it.
My kitties LOVE the little "garbage" treasures they find too!!
Both of my kitties also LOVE love love their carrier. It's got screened windows and a soft fleecy pad in the bottom. They nap in it throughout the day and happily walk into it when leaving to go to the vets.
It's made by PetMate and comes in different sizes (best price I've found is at PetGuys. )
The best product I've bought recently
is definitely a PetMate Deluxe FreshFlow Water Fountain.
I know most of you are familiar with the fountains, but for those of you who aren't... It's silent
, holds lots of water (108 oz), and, the best part - they both are drinking more, especially my older cat. The flow of the fountain is adjustable, and it has a replaceable carbon filter. I was pleased to see both of my cats took to the fountain immediately. The difference I see in the amount they are drinking is impressive. There are more urine clumps in the litter boxes and they actually spend a longer time drinking when drinking from the fountain, compared to the quick sips they would take from their previous water bowl. The fountain is easy to clean and it's really
easy to add water or change the carbon filter.
Oh, and the fountain came with a free PetMate Fresh Flow food bowl! It is nice and wide, with a high back. It actually keeps Windslow from spilling his dry food all over while eating (an impressive feat)!
(Best price I found on the fountain (with free bowl offer) was at PetGuys.)
