SmartyKat: Kicked Critter Plush Toy and Claw Tower – Review and Giveaway
Recently we moved into a larger house, and with more square footage comes more places the cats can hide and not interact with us. One of my first priorities was to get more scratch surfaces and more toys for them to play with. When I saw that SmartyKat had an almost 14 inch high scratch tower and light-up toy, I knew that Maggee and Murfee would love it!

Petlinks: Hyper Hide & Play Crinkle Ring + 2 Mice Cat Toy Review and Giveaway
There is no doubt I am a lucky person – I get to spend each day with my cats, Maggee and Murfee. Most days this works really well and they entertain themselves, although there are days in which they come to me and want my attention. For that reason, I am always adding toys, beds and play toys for them to enjoy. When I saw the Petlinks Hyper Hide & Play Crinkle Ring and that it was made for independent play, I knew it was perfect for the cats to enjoy while I work away.
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!
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 The Bird Catcher PRO Ex online, I was curious if it would be the toy she loved without the storage issues.
Brushing and Spending Time With Maggee and the Eazee Deshedding Tool – Review & Giveaway
If there is one thing on earth Maggee loves more than just about anything is brushing. When we adopted her from our local shelter one of our first priorities was to get her adjusted to the brush.
Each night we diligently brushed her, making sure we did not hurt her, or press to hard. Our goal was to make brushing a pleasurable thing and something she looked forward to, rather then fear. It took about a month or so, but she soon learned that no matter what brush, she loved it. As her guardians this made us happy, we knew that if it was fleas or knots, she would allow us to brush and inspect her.
Since that initial month we have been on a search for the one brush that she loves over the others. Also, since she has super dense fur our brush options can be a little limiting. When I saw the new Eazee Deshedding Brush I knew we had to give it a try, for Maggee. Continue reading
Fresh Step Hawaiian Aloha Scoopable Litter Review
I am so excited to announce that we are Chewy.com Influencers! What this means is that each month Chewy.com sends us an email with a selection of items that are for dogs, cats and small animals (birds and hamsters) for review. The items range from food, snacks, and supplies needed for pet guardianship. Each month I will bring you a different product that Maggee and Murfee will personally try out.
I was super excited to not only be accepted but then to have the chance to pick an item out for Maggee and Murfee this month. As I scrolled down the email, one item caught my eye – Fresh Step Cat Litter.
Cat Litter is a product that we always need and is always used. Since my cats are highly adaptable I had no hesitation with this litter change, since the brands we normally used would be different than this new one. I chose the Fresh Step Hawaiian Aloha Scoopable Litter and eagerly waited for the ubiquitous Chewy.com blue logo box.
