The Latest Scoop Is Out (And It’s Made Of Stainless Steel)

Let’s talk about scooping.

Everyone who’s ever cleaned a litterbox, sifting through the litter for all those little (and big) “treasures” knows how important a good litter scoop is.

Finding a scoop with the right spacing between the slots isn’t difficult. It’s a pretty standard measure and a little variety doesn’t make much of a difference. After all, you are sifting fairly large pieces out of relatively small grains of litter. There is one element that does matter, and that’s size.

In theory, the larger the scoop, the better. However, large plastic scoops, especially the cheaper, thinner, ones, tend to bend under the pressure. The larger the scoop, the more litter it has to work against, getting stuck and making you pull out the scoop before anything has been filtered out. And good luck with not getting dirty litter splashed all around.

steel-scoopIn order to be effective, a large scoop has to be strong. Very strong. Which is why this large stainless steel scoop is so awesome! You can’t get a scoop to be much stronger, now can you?

Not only is this heavy-duty beauty made of steel, it’s actually welded rather than screwed together. Talk about strength and durability!

It’s pretty obvious this was designed by someone who knows his way around the litterbox. Features such as high-beveled sides and holes all around them (in addition to the traditional slots) make each stroke exceptionally effective.

Did I mention it was large? You need fewer of those strokes with a scoop that’s a whole of five inches wide! Remember, it won’t fold or bend under the pressure either because it’s made of welded-steel.

If all of that wasn’t enough, this scoop also manages to address the other bane of plastic scoops: scratches. Scratches on plastic are more than just unsightly. They are unhygienic. You can (and should) was the scoop after each use but there will still be invisible microbes hiding there within the scratches. If you’re like most cat owners, you’ll get disgusted enough after a while to throw out the old worn-out plastic utensil and buy a new one. Well, with this stainless steel scoop, you can really clean it between uses. It doesn’t scratch and it’s durable enough to last for years.

Don’t be deterred by the price. It is not a cheap piece of plastic and it costs more. It’s worth it though, saving you time as you can scoop more efficiently, keeping your home cleaner, and eventually, saving you money as well as you no longer have to buy a new one every few months.

4th Of July Patriotic Cat Collar

The 4th of July is around the corner! With only one more month to go:

Is Kitty ready for the parade??

Ok, so you probably should not take your cat to watch the parade and even if yours is an indoor-outdoor cat, keeping him inside during fireworks night is a good idea too. That doesn’t mean your cat shouldn’t enjoy the holiday with you! There’s no need to badger Kitty with an elaborate costume or feed her BBQ dishes. All it takes is switching over from your regular “bleh” collar to this elegant patriotic breakaway cat collar – patriotic-collar

This elegant collar adorned with a chevron pattern of stripes and stars, in blue, white and red, is just the cat’s meow when it comes to Independence Day feline chic. It’s as practical as it is beautiful with its breakaway buckle allowing for a fast release in case Kitty manages to get it entangled in something. That’s a standard safety feature in cat collars: They should always have a breakaway buckle or be stretchy enough for a cat to wiggle his or her head out of the collar in case of emergency.

The collar comes with a bell but you don’t have to keep it. Some cats don’t mind bells on their collars but others really dislike them, so see how your cat reacts and if needs be, just snap the bell off.

Oh, and in case you’re wondering, yes, this collar is made in the US 😀 Each collar is handmade with attention to detail and finish. You can choose one of three sizes so it can fit a kitten or an adult cat, even a large one. What’s more, with these being custom-made collars, you can even ask for your own specs, for a particularly large cat.

Check out this patriotic collar on Amazon and order yours today so Kitty can wear his collar proudly next month!

Give Kitty Extra Leg Room In The Carrier!

Ok, so leg room is for us humans during long flights. In this case, it’s leg room, or tailroom or any other part of the cat’s body room 😉

It’s simple an ingenious idea. Why settle for the size of a cat carrier? It can get crowded in there. Sure, sometimes you need all four solid walls for extra security, but at other times, you can turn this amazing carrier into “relaxed mode”, and open up one of the sides without putting your cat at any risk. That side is equipped with a mesh cover which turns it into a small tent. More room and a more airy feeling for the small passenger inside –


There are even more good reasons to invest in this elegant cat carrier. The designers really know cats and cat owner and thought about all the little things –

  1. It comes in several sizes, the largest of which is 48cm x 30cm x 30cm.
  2. The mesh allows for great ventilation.
  3. You can carry it with its strong handle or using the shoulder strap.
  4. It has not one but two zipper doors, for ease of access.
  5. It has small side pockets where you can store things you need for the ride.
  6. It comes with a removable plush mat. Soft to lay on and easy to remove for cleaning.
  7. It’s easy to store, as it collapses to a flat storage mode.
  8. It’s very pretty!

This is a high-end cat carrier that gets great reviews on Amazon. It could be a perfect travel solution for your pampered cat! Check it out here.

How to naturally remove tear stains from under your cat’s eyes?

Tear stains are the bane of Persian cats and exotic cats. They are not pretty. They make your cat look sick and unwell even though Kitty just has issues with tear drainage that are typical of the breed.

Fortunately, there’s a solution. A natural tear stain remover by Paw Choice.


tear-stain-removerIt’s made of natural ingredients, specifically purified water, coconut oil and plant-derived glycerin. This gentle formula allows you to clean around the cat’s sensitive eye area. All you have to do is shake the bottle, spray a little bit of the liquid on a clean cloth or cotton ball and then very gently wipe the area. You should wipe away from the eye and make sure not to touch the eyes themselves.

If your cat isn’t a Persian or Exotic (shorthaired Persian) and you’re seeing tear stains you should talk to your vet about it. You can could have a medical problem with tear drainage that needs addressing (it’s called epiphora in vet lingo).

Store Cat Toys In This Elegant Wicker Basket Home Décor

Does your cat love new toys… but only new ones? Does she get all excited about a new catnip mouse only to toss it away or hide it behind the couch, never to be played with again? Read on for a solution!

Cat toys are more than just “fun”. They’re an important part of enriching your cat’s environment and making it stimulating enough for her, both physically and mentally. There are so many awesome cat toys available these days, stuffed, crinkly, laced with catnip, bouncy or tasseled. However, for some cats, even the best toy can become dull after awhile. With playtime being a form of mock hunting, a used toy is a lot like a dead body. Not even an edible body at that, so no wonder Kitty is thinking: Bo-ring!

The good news is that there’s a way to keep toys fresh in your cat’s mind. The idea is to rotate toys. Limit each specific toy’s availability by stashing them out of Kitty’s sight and reach. Have one or two toys out for a play session but once your cat tires of them, pick them up and put them back in the toy box. The following day, offer a different toy or two. Have enough toys to keep rotating them so that the same toy doesn’t go out more than once a week. The less frequent the sessions, the better.

Which brings me to today’s recommended product: A pet-themed wicker basket!

wicker pet toys and accessories storage

It’s shaped like a bone, so possibly designed with a canine in mind, but it would make a great fit for any cat owner’s home too. Let’s face it, the shape usually associated with cats is a fishbone. Not only is it unsafe for cats, you can hardly create a box shaped as one, now can you?

So, back to this bone-shaped wicker basket. It’s 24 inches in length and 9 inches tall. Large enough to hold a varied assortment of cat toys and even some treats. It has a secure lid with a latch to keep Kitty from opening it. If you use it to store catnip-scented toys or cat treats, I suggest storing it in a closet though. You don’t want a stubborn cat trying to claw his or her way in and destroying this beautiful item. Large, lightweight, easy to store in itself and perfect for storing anything pet-related, this basket gets a paws-up here!
