Sure. Sometimes you're in a hurry and you forget to feed your pets, those innocent creatures who depend on your love and care, the ones that greet you at the door when you come home or squawk or hiss at you to get your attention... Don't be sorry; just get a simple reminder, put it in an obvious place, and your pets will get their food or medicine on time every day!
Whether or not you live in a busy household with adults, kids, and pets, it's usually the pets, who can't feed or medicate themselves, that get the short shrift when it comes to care. It's just how life works when you have multiple beings with multiple priorities under your roof. Maybe your kids are responsible for feeding the bunnies, but they go off to school without doing it. Maybe your spouse was late for work. How will you know?
Here are a few inexpensive, convenient gadgets to help you and your family give your pets the right care at the right time!
The company called DYFTD, presumably an acronym for 'Did You Feed The Dog,' has a few different models of its reminder, including Did You Feed The Dog? (currently out of stock), Did You Feed The Cat?, and Did You Medicate The Dog? More reminders on the burner!
The DYFTDs have been very popular. They are 9 x 5 x .75 inches, are light weight, and have stick on backs so you can place them wherever it's convenient.
YARKOR makes another reminder, more generic, the YARKOR Pet Feeding Reminder, which you can use with impartiality for your cat, dog, rabbit, or any other pet. The YARKOR comes in metalic and black (seen above). The YARKOR comes with peel and stick adherence as well as a magnetic option in case you want to place the reminder on your fridge.
The Glide Signs Pet Feeding Reminder has a sleeker look and is more upscale, made with brushed aluminum. You can place it on your fridge with its convenient, strong magnet or place it elsewhere using its adhesive backing.
KENnCAT Pet Feeding Reminder Magnet for cats
KENnCAT makes two versions of this reminder, one for cats (above) and one for dogs. The KENnCAT Pet Feeding Reminder Magnet is intended for your fridge or other magnetized surface such as your dishwasher. This is fun if you have kids in the house responsible for pet care. The included marker comes with its own eraser attached and a magnetic gripper so you can place it right on the mat.
KENnCAT Pet Feeding Reminder Magnet for dogs
The FLO PET is extensive and very useful, especially if you have a multi-person household and/or petsitters. Food amounts, instructions on changing diets, and non-food related information can all be noted on this 12 by 9 inch chart that conveniently, and effectively, sticks to any magnetized surface like your fridge. Use erasable markers to distinguish between responsible parties or just for visual variety! And you can use a paper or cloth towel to refresh the whole board for the following week!
Not to forget our kitties, Flo Pet makes a Refrigerator Magnet for them as well....
The FLO PET Reminder for cats gives a nod to the multiple daily feeds that cats, particularly kittens, may need.
One of the above 5 pet feeding/medication reminders can easily be made part of your household routine... just so your pets don't go without!
That's the buzz for today!
