Providing whisker stress relief in style! (giveaway)

Some cat owners may not be familiar with the term whisker stress, a.k.a whisker fatigue, but it does exist and your cat may be experiencing it. Whisker stress can occur when your cat eats from its food dish that is a typical pet food bowl – one with high sides – and their whiskers touch the edge of the bowl while eating.

Remember, your cat’s whiskers are very sensitive touch receptors, and they are a sensory tool for your cat, helping it navigate their world and surroundings.

whisker-stress-free-cat-feederTo eliminate whisker stress, it is a good idea to feed your cat from a shallow dish, so their whiskers do not touch the sides of the bowl while eating. If you want to relieve your cat’s whisker stress (and who wouldn’t want to do that), why not do it in style?

Today we are giving away a beautiful and classy Whisker Stress Free Cat Feeder from Trendy Pet!

Sophie and the SureFeed Review (plus giveaway!)

Raise your paw if you’re a grazer. Raise ’em high and raise ’em proud! In our household, Sophie is the resident grazer. A nibble here, a nibble there…a mid-nibble snooze…then back for another nibble.

As the human who monitors the nibbling, I need to allow for enough grazing time but not enough time for the food to spoil. So, I was more than happy to try out the SureFeed Sealed Pet Bowl from SureFlap.

What is SureFeed and How Does It Work?

SureFeed is a sealed pet bowl and its lid automatically opens when your pet approaches, allowing your pet access to their food at any time. The lid then closes when the pet is done eating and seals in freshness and odors – and keeps out bugs! Pretty simple, but pretty smart.

Zen Clipper Review and Giveaway

Let’s face it. Most cats love nail trim time. Mine do. Don’t yours?

Perhaps I’m exaggerating a bit. Actually, nail trim time is a two-person job in this household. Human #1 wrangles the cat – then with sweat dripping from the brow, deposits the cat onto the blanket covered lap of human #2. Out come the clippers, a few grunts and grumbles ensue (and also a few yowls from the kitty) – clip, clip, clip – and we’re done! Then, onto cat #2 and cat #3. Sound familiar?

Book Giveaway and Author Interview – Purrball Meets Burrball in Brazil

What I love about children’s books is that you don’t have to be a child to enjoy them. I admit that I have a collection of children’s books – all cat books, of course – so I was happy to receive a copy of Purrball Meets Burrball in Brazil for their Blog Tour this week.

As you may have guessed by the title, our hero cat Purrball meets a friendly sloth named Burrball in this adventure story. This book is perfect for young readers, ages 6-9, who will quickly fall in love with the two main characters as they follow along on their journey.
