I do more than half of my pet shopping at Amazon.com. The site carries so much variety in foods, supplements, toys, habitats, and even pet clothing and costumes. If there's something I'm not sure about, I depend on the reviews of other pet owners to steer me in the right direction; when all the customers rate an item with 5 stars, I'm pretty sure to get a quality item. So, I did some searching on Amazon.com to find the highest ratings in 10 popular cat 'cat'egories to share with you, reflecting what Amazon customers think are the best products for your cats.
The Kitty Tube is by far the favorite of Amazon.com's customers in the outdoor cat house category. That might be because the Kitty Tube is fully insulated and is built for warmth in winter and coolness in summer, with air vents that can be opened or closed depending on the weather. The Tube fits up to 3 cats comfortably and comes with a cat bed. There is even a cat bed option for feral cats. Very user-friendly, huh?
And the Kitty Tube is green! It's made of 100 percent post consumer content consisting of recycled milk and detergent bottles. Go green with the Kitty Tube at Amazon.com.
Now here's a cat tree with a whole lot of cat and cat owner fans. Almost 1,800 cat owners have written sterling reviews of the Armarkat Cat Tree on Amazon. And there are 428 customer images posted for this tree house; some photos show 7 cats in the tree house at the same time! Now, that's a fan club!
The Armarkat Cat Tree shown here is the 66" model, but you can order the Cat Tree in various heights with several configurations.Check them all out on Amazon.com.
Here's a cat scratcher made for cats who love to stretch, and what cat doesn't? The SmartCat Ultimate Scratching Post is the ultimate because it's tall (32"), it's got sisal scratching material, and it's got a solid, sturdy base that won't let the Scratching Post wobble while kitties scratch.
The great (my cat loves his!) SmartCat Ultimate Scratching Post is available at Amazon.com.
Don't we cat owners know just how difficult it is to put a cat into a carrier from the side. Why you almost have to anesthetize him. The PetMate Two-Door Top Load Pet Carrier gets high marks for its convenience, as well as its sturdiness. It's available in 19" and 24" sizes, and various colors, and it's perfect for cats, small dogs, and other small animals.
For years now, Da Bird has been the best selling cat toy. It's the feathers, the wand, the interactive qualities of Da Bird...probably all three. I don't know, but I can vouch for it because it is also my cat's favorite toy. and one of my 19+ Best Interactive Pet Toys. This Da Bird is sold with replacement feathers - your cat will need them.
In the Health Supplies category, there is nothing more uniquely cat than the proclivity to swallow hairballs. Laxatone is an easy to swallow oral gel that is a safe and effective way to remove hairballs in your cat's digestive system. Cats really seem to like the taste of Laxatone, even in its natural flavor. But there's also tuna flavor, and catnip flavor!
This clay clumping litter claims to keep moisture from the bottom of the pan, making it one good reason why Amazon customers rate it so highly. Natural, hypogenic, and dust free, what more could you want in a cat litter? Oh, it's odor free. Get your Ultra Precious Cat Litter at Amazon.com.
Here's another product that I can vouch for. The Kong Zoom Groom is made of a solid piece of rubber. Its spikes are thick and rounded at the tips, so they feel more gentle than the steel spikes of most cat brushes. Yet, the Zoom Groom is just as effective at removing dead hairs as the steel brush. Its effectiveness may have as much to do with the static it creates when it rubs against your cat's fur, as from the brush's tines, which are rather far apart. Hairs clump together and are easily removed from the Zoom Groom. Available here from Amazon.com.
Why is this cat tunnel rated higher than the others by cat owners? Looks like the rest of them... Could it be because the nylon is tougher? Or the Kitty Play Tunnel has a soft warm lining that makes it cozy for their cats? Or perhaps it's because the Kitty Play Tunnel has four strong ties on both ends so that the tunnel can be combined with other tunnels to create a maize of tunnels for multiple cats. Everyone raves about the Kitty Play Tunnel; one cat-owner wrote, "I can't get my cat out of it!" Now that's a good sign....
That's the buzz for today!
