Maggee vs The Bird Catcher PRO EX – Review + Giveaway –
When we adopted Maggee we purchased a bunch of toys and items we thought she might like. We purchased tiny stuffed mice that got lost far to quickly, we purchased balls with bells that were inevitably stepped on and we bought a bird feathers on a string. Since she was a bit older upon adoption, but still very young and recently had given birth we were told to keep her calm the first 5 days at home – Yea! You try to keep a 9 month old kitten “calm”.
As for the toys, she showed little interest until we tried the bird toy. We quickly discovered that one of her favorite ways to play was laying down and letting the bird toy come to her. She learned VERY quickly that the toy always returned within in a radius that she could reach with her paws. At the time we did not know if the fascination with this toy was more that she was healing or that she was lazy. It turned out that she just a lazy player and knows the toys will return.
One of her favorite toys is the bird toys that seem to be flying in the air. The biggest problem is that generally these have long handles and long strings, which makes storage difficult when you live in a small house. When I saw a review of TheBird Catcher PRO Ex online, I was curious if it would be the toy she loved without the storage issues.
As many readers know, we have been reviewing the dog version of the Pet Treater box for a while now, and I am so excited that as of September 2017 Pet Treater has added a monthly Cat Pack for cat guardians.
Since this is the first month that Pet Treater has a Cat Pack, I was so excited that the cats could get in on the monthly action. Continue reading →
Each day my husband wakes up, says goodbye to the cats and goes to an office for a minimum of 8 hours a day. On the other hand my office is my house, my co-workers have 4 legs and are much furrier than most other co-workers.
Since I am home based my “daily essentials” amount to water, a pillow for my back and a good flow of music on the background. When I received the “Purrfect Daily Essentials” themed Cat Lady Box this month, I knew that they must have known the things I needed for my “purrfect” daily essentials needs. Continue reading →
There are many things that pull at my attention throughout the day, the largest being the cats. When I say “the cats” really i mean Maggee. There is nothing that Maggee loves more than attention, and she will take it anytime and anyway she can.
One of her favorite things is to sit on our laps, with paw on the chest and head in prime position to bump into the chins of the humans.
I love this time with her and encourage it more than I probably should. A couple of months ago I started seeing a sweater for cat lovers called the KittyRoo Sweatshirt, Many friends had shared this with me, and after a couple of months, thought it time I get one for review.
We have two cats, and with that two different personalities. One cat, Murfee, started his life very full of life and has he has gotten older (he is will be 5 in August of this year), there is notable slow down in high activity levels.
On the other hand, our other cat Maggee is full of life and full of playtime any time of day. There is literally never a time when she does not want to play, and it usually at full throttle.
When I recently was given an opportunity to review the Bright Bopper LED Light-Up Cat Toy, I was hoping the previous toy loving Murfee and always up for playtime Maggee would enjoy it.
Our cats are indoor cats, and as far as we can tell they are happy with this decision that we have made for them.
The reason that we made this decision was as selfish for ourselves as it was selfish for them. When we adopted them we debated making them indoor/outdoor cats, but since we live on a major road, if they happen to make their way out it could end deadly for them. For this reason, and about a million more, they are now happy indoor house cats. Since they live their life in the confines of our home it is important to both of us that we give them the most stimulating and full life humanly possible.
Back when I first started reviewing cat toys I came across a company called Petstages that has a complete line of toys for cats (and dogs). The thing that we loved about these toys is that they stimulate the cats mind, as well as their reward system that keeps them hunting and playing, all while providing exercise in a safe environment that we control.
Murfee is a unique cat in many ways, but mostly because he is hot and cold when it comes to the things he likes. In most situations this does not bother us, and honestly we have become quite accustom to it and even find humor among the chaos of his ever changing mood.
The one thing that Murfee has loved since he was a kitten and has stayed constant about is catnip. There is something about this grown plant that he loves, and most days can garner a flicker of interest.
When I recently was doing searches about growing our own catnip I came across a company called Meowijuana, I was immediately interested since I love a good play on words.
Cat Lady Box Monthly Subscription – “Cozy & Comfy” – January 2017 – Review + Giveaway
Early in our cat guardian life, we realized that our cats were going to miss out on sleeping on our beds at night. Due to the layout of our house, there is a clear path from our living room to the bedroom. If we keep the bedroom door open, they run and use our (Jason’s) legs to vault themselves ahead of each other.
Recently we have begun to let our girl cat, Maggee, in the room the last couple hours of the sleep cycle. Most days she hunkers down by my legs and falls asleep. The other day, we discovered that a soon as the humans sleep she explores the closet. We had set some water bottles on the edge of our elevated closet, and when we woke, one bottle was on the floor – not where we left it.

If you are a cat guardian, cat fan or even just appreciate cats then you will love this feline take on the property board game called Cat-Opoly by Late for the Sky. This game has all the details that cat lovers will appreciate from the cat boxes (the homes) and the fish bones (the hotels). Each property is replaced with a cat breed and the values include each step of financial increase and the back of each deed contains fun facts about cats that are featured on the board. Its the traditional property trading game with some cat-astrophic twists included. Almost every major cat breed is represented in the property cards and this will give you and your cat friends hours of fun!
