The Cat Kit: The Summer Kit – August 2016 Review

The Cat Kit: The Summer Kit – August 2016 Review

The Summer KitSummer is a constant “on the go” time, if it is not the beach it is amusement parks, family gatherings and even overnight excursions. Many times with all this travel the cats are left and home, and while out of sight, they are not out of mind.

I am a cat lady and proud of it and even when we travel our cats are never far from our thoughts. I love to have cat items sprinkled throughout my daily life. I have a cat wallet that sits beside a cat umbrella in a cat bag. My girl Maggee is also my background on my phone as well as hundreds of photos on my phone.

Since I love getting cat related items as much as my cats enjoy getting toys, I was excited to be given the opportunity to review The Cat Kit, The Cat Kit is a filled with 7 adorable items for cat and human and really is “purrfect” for any cat lover.

Triple T Studios: Kitten Tote Giveaway

Flat bagI am cat fan – I can honestly say that my two little furry creatures are like my children. When I was young I wanted to help all the worlds furry creatures and be a Veterinarian. The day the dream died was the day I realized I would have to put down animals, and decided that I could not see any creature in pain or discomfort. Despite my childhood dream not coming to fruition, the one thing that came out of that wish was a genuine love for cats. I collect cat items, and if Jason would let me I would have more than just Maggee and Murfee in my house.

Since I am unable to have all the cats I want, I show my cat love in my wardrobe choices, and the accessories that I wear. I have wanted a bag that I could be versatile enough for a quick trip out, or a day at a museum and preferably containing a cat.

I was recently introduced to Triple T Studios, and one look on their site, I knew I had found my new favorite website and a new bag. One of the products available on their site is a Kitten Tote that meets the strict requirements I had.

Pet Gift Box: Cat Subscription Box – January 2016 Review

 

Pet Gift Box – Cat – Subscription Box – January 2016 Review

January 2016 Tail-gate party

 

There is no denying that we are a football home. From our San Diego Charger themed decorations to what team we root for. I never imagined that I would care much about football much less about what the result of the Super Bowl turns out to be. The big news for San Diego fans is that despite much concern, many comments and discussions to the contrary, the Chargers will be in San Diego for the 2016 season. This came as a collective exhale from the cities residents, and while 2016 is figured out, the future is still up in air for the Chargers.

Since I was in San Diego, the NFL Owners was shown and updated – this put me on edge until the end. The unintended result was that the stress i was feeling was passed on to the cats. I did not realize the undo stress they were also feeling while i was on edge. It got me thinking that despite my excitement, at times the yelling “touchdown” and the screaming about an interception can cause animals undo stress due to not knowing if the yelling is at them or the box in front of them.

Despite the momentary fear that I might put in the cats, I am still a yelling proud San Diego Fan. In this months PetGiftBox they celebrate that pigskin tradition that is celebrated over 16 Sunday’s a year.

KitNipBox Subscription Box- Monthly Box Review

KitNipBox Monthly Subscription Box Review

Monthly Box Contents - Kit Nip BoxOur cats are rescues – Murfee was discovered in an open field at 2 days old with only 2 other siblings and no mother to be found. Our Maggee is a different story – she was shuttled around from home to home for a couple of weeks due to alleged aggression issues. The only aggression that we have seen is when we get home and she is beyond eager to have us hold her. Our Maggee then had kittens, in a foster home, but as soon as she could she was separated from them and brought back to the shelter. This is where we entered her life – she jumped in our lap in the room and I was sold – she was mine!

Both of our cats had a rough start to life and despite this, they have the sweetest and most calm demeanor. When we have guests come over, instead of hiding, our cats want to be with the humans in the middle of the action. This gives our guests opportunities to play with toys and give them treats – and we know they love the added attention.

Our cats live their life inside, and for us this is right decision and the best way we can keep them safe. Due to the fact that we keep them in the house, we try to provide them as much stimulation as possible. We recently received a KitNipBox for review that provided a nice overview of the types of items one could receive from this monthly subscription box.

Pet Gift Box – Cat – Subscription Box – September Review

September Pet Gift Box with PostcardI usually do not associate cats and bad hair days, I mean for the most part their care regiment is short, simple and easy. I have noted this behavior and while it does involved a substantially wet tongue it does not require much else. Most days I am witness to this simple yet highly effective method of grooming, and I have to say that cats have it far easier than humans.

When humans undertake this ritual of everyday life, it can take anywhere from 5 minutes to 2 hours depending on the complexity of style. There is where our feline companions also fare better – they do not have a style to keep up or maintain.

Given the considerable amount of money and time that is spent on this task it seems “hair raisingly” appropriate that this months Pet Gift Box theme is “Hair Club for Cats”. The treats included in this months box had a hair and grooming theme including the following:

Kitty Kush Catnip Review

Kitty Kush Catnip Review and Giveaway

There is little to no doubt that our Murfee likes catnip and I will admit that we indulge him. I have attempted to grow my own for him, but each time something unexpected happens to the crop. The first time we had a heat wave with wind and before I knew it the plastic pot disappeared. The second time we almost had a full crop and then magically it was gone. I am not sure if a neighborhood cat stole it, ate it or the magical catnip trolls took it. This last time life got in the way and I just plain forgot to give it the needed water and love it needed.

We had read that catnip does not affect cats under 9 months old, or until they reach sexual maturity, so we waited until he was about a year old. Ever since the introduction was made, Murfee and catnip are two peas in a pod. I recently came across a new product called “Kitty Kush Catnip” that resembles a salt grinder but grinds cat nip instead!

Kitty Kush Catnip SpokescatsThe basic idea behind this product is that it comes prepacked with cat nip pellets that are infused with essential oils and compacted together. When you want to give your kitty some catnip all you do is turn the built in grinder much like you would turn a salt grinder. A little goes a long way due to the concentrated nature of this product – I literally did less then one full turn for Murfee and that was enough.

Pet Gift Box – Cat – Subscription Box – July Review

Pet Gift Box – Cat – Subscription Box – July ReviewPet Gift Box July 2015

Fitness is not a world that is used often around this house, unless it is in direct relation to our cats. We have made the choice to keep our cats as indoor cats, therefore fitness and nutrition are even more important than if they were outside playing all day.

We are always looking for ways for them to do what we call “the magic three” which are hunt, eat and sleep. The idea is that they hunt their prey (or toy) and once they have gotten it, we feed them a treat or wet food (or direct them to their dry food) so they can “eat” their kill and then they fall asleep from the hunt. We look for toys that will encourage that and support that behavior in the Muggles.

Pet Gift Box July 2015Knob Goblin – $5.99: This toy attached to a door knob or handle. This toy has a great springing ability and has a noise rattle inside that gives the cats even more reason to attack the toy. I think the reason that Murfee loved it so much is because of the included catnip – he loves catnip!

Pet Gift Box July 2015Swat N’ Bobble Octopus – $5.99: This silly looking faced toy has a suction cup that attached to many different surfaces (I attached it to my wood floor, sliding glass window and wood cabinet siding). The downside is that if your cat is a ferocious player like our cats then they will inevitably knock the toy down, thus ending the fun for them. After I put the suction cup where I wanted it I just put two small pieces of tape on the side to hold in place. Bonus for my catnip loving boy Murfee because cat nip is included in this toy.

Pet Gift Box – Cat – Subscription Box – June Review

PetGiftBox - Jurassic June BoxI remember the first time I heard of dinosaurs and seeing Jurassic Park the first time.  I remember thinking that nothing that large, imposing or threatening could have ever walked this earth. I began to read and compare the movie to actual fact and came to my own conclusions. I get lost in the world that was created in which to transport people back billions of year ago. This beloved franchise was recently given a 2015 twist and is scarier, more exciting and more imposing then before.

Appropriately this months box theme is a take on the uber successful recently rebooted Jurassic Park series – instead welcome to “Purrassic Park” for Pet Gift boxes Jurassic June Box. This months theme could not have been more timely or more appropriate as many subscription boxes are using this as a theme and capitalizing on this beloved franchise. The thematic tone to this months box was right on point and included the following:
