Review: Carpet CPR Pet Stain and Odor Remover


Super Cool Pets headquarters is generally a little disheveled with so many pets milling around. We recommend hard floor surfaces for pet households rather than carpet. But since most of us do have some rugs around in any case, daily maintenance is a must to stay even remotely presentable.

Thus we happily accepted a sample spray bottle Carpet CPR Spot & Stain Remover for review from LA-based Leather CPR. Carpet CPR is a spray that needs to penetrate the dirt on your carpet for about 3-5 minutes.

thumbsup.jpg We treated a stain (so many spots, so little time), let it soak in and cleaned it up with a neutral cloth. The dirt was absorbed and removed, leaving a clean fresh smell.

Carpet CPR is also great for red wine, food stains, fruit juice, dirt, grease, coffee/tea, lipstick, ink, as well as pet stains. Spray carpet cleaners make effective laundry stain pre-treatment as well.

For a free product sample, click here. Share by simply providing this link: www.leathercpr.com/specialoffer to your family and friends. The five people who refer the most friends/family will be rewarded with a CPR Cleaning Products Prize Pack valued at $50.

Musical Jukebox Toy Entertains Indoor Pet Birds


We recently added a new baby cockatiel to the Super Cool Pets team and have been scouting around for fun bird toys to make her feel at home. This Musical Jukebox Toy should entertain and stimulate our new bird, as well as her older companion.

This toy has an easy-press button that allows your bird to activate the music thousands of times. Birds love listening to music, so this can be an excellent source of entertainment when people are not around or otherwise occupied. It's even tough enough for Amazons and African Greys.

Two New Birdhouses for Spring -- Copper and Fairy Village

Even if the weather is frightful where you live, the birds are migrating back and are looking for homes to raise their young. Here are two different styles that would embellish your back yard:


This Copper Birdhouseicon is made of 100% recycled Turkish copper with a sunburst medallion embossed on the side. It has an insulating wooden inner liner with a removable roof for cleaning.


This cast polyresin Fairy Village Birdhouseicon is loaded with detail, from the curving "brick" roof and chimney to the arched doorway and heart transom above. It has a removable bottom for cleaning.

PetScoop -- New Trend: People Buried with their Pets


With a tax deadline fast approaching, it brings to mind the other certainty of life. Many of us plan to be buried alongside family members. Would that include your pet(s)? People have been buried with their animals throughout history, even prior to the era of Egyptian pharaohs and Roman emperors.

Christian missionaries, who believed that only humans have (are?) souls, discouraged communal burials in order to wean the pagans from their animal rituals and convert them to Christianity. (Note: If you believe your pet does not have a soul, check out Care for Pets Left Behind by the Rapture).

The United Kingdom is a nation of animal lovers with a strong historic background in pagansim. The UK trend is to include pets in their burial plans, according to an article in CNN Pets and people buried together.

These two personalized Pet Memorials make attractive and dignified markers. They are available in different sizes in Marble or Vermont Slate.

Hummingbird Slow Motion Videos

We live in a sub-tropical climate that is (usually) quite warm and comfortable (except this winter). At least one pair of Ruby-Throats is back this year, buzzing around and feasting off the Firespike bushes and Bottlebrush tree. A Firespike right outside our office window affords a close-up of the birds feeding. One perches for minutes at a time on a tiny stem of the bush.

For those of you still in snow country, below are close-up videos of hummers feeding--the first out of someone's hand! The second two are set to music and quite beautiful.

Care for Pets Left Behind by the Rapture -- Eternal Earth-Bound Pets


Do you believe your pet has a soul?

Anywhere from 20 million to 40 million people in the melting pot we affectionately call the US of A are devout believers in The Rapture. To refresh your memory, in the off chance you find yourself excluded from this group, Jesus will return to Earth in the Second Coming. The righteous, both dead (what have they been up to in the meantime?) and alive, will ascend to a better place, while the unsaved remain behind on Earth. Hence, the Rapture.

But what will become of all the pets doomed to remain here on Earth, since these 20 to 40 million believe animals do not have souls and hence cannot partake?

Business Week reports that a new service called Eternal Earth-Bound Pets (219 comments on the article at this writing), all confirmed atheists, will step in to provide for the animals left behind by the 'saved'. Required qualifications of the reps: "animal lovers, are moral / ethical with no criminal background, have the ability and desire to rescue your pet and the means to retrieve them and ensure their care for your pet's natural life."

The service is limited to dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, and small caged mammals. For $110.00 they will guarantee that should the Rapture occur within ten (10) years of receipt of payment, one pet per residence will be saved. Each additional pet at your residence will be saved for an additional $15.00 fee.
