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!
Even if you are not into the environment, you know that your dog
is. Dogs are born nature lovers. They love to dig in dirt, roll in
other dog's feces (you know what I'm talking about), sniff other dog's
private parts, lick their own pee, and eat grass. If you're not a dog
owner, don't worry, the worst is over.
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!
"March madness" was tame compared to the excitement
generated by the Luxury Pet Pavilion Show in Los Angeles,
a few weeks ago. The exhibitors were luxury dog product companies and dogs
themselves, dressed to the nines, walking the famous Pavilion red carpet. Three contests were the highlights of the
event: Best Dressed Dog, Best Booth, and Best New Product.
Birds can be wonderful pets. Members of the parrot family are
especially friendly, charming, and funny. But they tend to scream.
They scream when they sense danger, something new in their environment, or just
to get your attention. The sound indeed gets your attention, but it's not a
sound that engenders affection toward your bird, even among the best bird parents.
No recession for dogs... I tell ya! It's just a bunny a minute out there for the lucky dogs getting dressed up for Easter. This year's fashions include bold and bodacious sweaters for dogs this spring, and classic, more regal dresses for females with lots of emphasis on fabric details...and I'd have to say they're even more beautiful than last season's. My top 10 picks for Easter, with the exception of one (I hope) can be worn all spring, until it's time for bikinis.
