Spending More Time With Maggee and the Eazee Dust & Flea Comb Review & a Giveaway
As I have mentioned in the past, Maggee loves to be brushed. This works well for us since she has dense fur that numbers in the billions. We have a routine, and part of it is we diligently brushed her each night.
A couple of months ago a fleas infestation overtook our home, and our cats. I discovered this by taking an old flea comb and attempting to brush the fleas and dirt away. The comb I had was for an old family dog we had and it’s teeth were unevenly spaced. It worked but not nearly as efficiency or fine teethed as I would have liked. When I saw the new Eazee Deshedding Brush had a Dust & Flea Comb Attachment I wanted to try see if this could help Maggee and get those fleas!

Auromere: Pre-Shampoo Conditioner and Neem Plus 5 Shampoo Review + Giveaway
A couple of years ago I met a company at Expo West – Auromere – the “Ayurveda people”, I was recently given the opportunity to review a full size bottle of pre-shampoo and shampoo. I was eager to use a pre-shampoo to clean my hair of the impurities. At the time the booth was busy and I was halted by the wonderful smelling products that included not only personal care items such as incense, toothpaste’s and shampoo, just to name a few.

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.
