If you love old movies, then you know what Humphrey Bogart did for
the cigar. He made it into fashion for the tough guys, the fast
talkers, the don't-mess-with-me's of the 1940's and early 50's. So
too, this English bull dog named Sam could be the fashion setter for
the tough barkin' dog. "Hey babe, lets go to the burbs t'night and chase some cats up some telephone poles."
Taking a car trip with your pets this summer? You already know that
every inch of room in the car will be precious, so packing your pet's
necessities will involve some good space economy. I just found a
wonderful container -- I mean "Travel-tainer" -- that combines pet food
with pet bowls and packs them quite compactly in a 7 x 5.25 inch
container with a handle for easy transport.
Cardboard scratchers have saved my furniture from my cat. I honestly can't thank them enough. But since they started becoming popular, they've gotten more and more substantial... thicker and definitely more stylish. Just look at these cute cardboard animal sculptures created by Cardboard Designs.
Cats love to be outdoors, but there are all kinds of very good reasons to keep them inside -- no need to get into them. But Kittywalk has made some fine netted, enclosed cat walks, and you can choose one to fit your yard, deck, or balcony. Give him some fresh air and a new view of the world!
Cats don't really care where they climb or
where they hide, and if you live in a small house or apartment, you may
not have enough space to put a cat climber in the middle of a small
enough living area. Kittywalk Systems has a great idea -- a Cozy Cat Climber you can hang on any door, even in your closet!
I've long been a believer that cats and dogs eat grass for a good reason: they need it. The thing about cats is that they eat everything that's green, so you end up having to give up your house plants, unless you're sure they pose no danger to kitty.
