Magnet Broom

80636.jpg

At this busy time of year, we sometimes need to clean up quickly. Lugging out the vac is a project, so try this Magnet Broom. It's an easy way to get pet hair off hardwood floors, carpets and upholstery.

The head is actually a sponge that attracts dust, dirt and hair "like a magnet". Great way to rid your home of potential allergens, especially this time of year with windows shut and company arriving. Simply wipe the head with a dry cloth, and it's ready to use again. Replaceable sponge.

Moving with Pets

moving-pets.jpg

Moving Day! Change is exciting, but also stressful for everyone. Don't forget how tough it can be on your pets. Once when we moved, our cat, Mr Frank, disappeared for 3 days. We thought Frank was history, but he came back. Be sure to ID your pet before the move! Here are a few suggestions: petFINDER™ Pet ID Tag, Kooga Pet Flash Drive, Dog e-Tag and the micro-chip.

Here's a funny and realistic SF Gate article with a few tips thrown in-- Moving? Congratulations. Moving with pets? Condolences ... a few tips to make it slightly less horrible, The writer recommends focusing on safety and stress relief:

Simply accept that once you move, your cats will not speak to you for at least a week, if not much longer. They will urinate on your underwear, scratch the new sofa, and if you let them out, not come back for several days. They will laugh at your agony with all their little kitty friends. They will decide not to eat the food they've been eating for years. They will forget they ever learned to use a litter box. In short, they'll make you wish you'd never been born, never met a cat, or simply stayed in the old house the way you were intended to by the cat gods.

Your dogs will speak to you, because they are, after all, dogs, and there's only so much they can bear to do that will hurt you. But they'll look at you with a reproachful gaze, and at last you'll fully understand where the phrase "puppy dog eyes" came from. They'll go on walks but will sadly inform you that they miss their old familiar smells, and worry that, without them to refresh the scent, the dogs in the old neighborhood will forget them....

....In the end, nothing will really make moving with pets a snap. It's stressful and, unless you're very careful, it can be dangerous. So do all these things I suggest. Put them in safe carriers, update their ID tags, microchip them and board them and break out the ambient music. Even if it doesn't fix it for them, you'll probably feel better.

Not long after you move, the dogs will relent and decide the new house and neighborhood aren't so bad. And one day, as you sit drinking coffee in your big new kitchen, your cat will plunk herself down on the paper you're trying to read.

And you'll know she finally forgave you, too.

Christmas Advent Calendars and Puzzles

At Super Cool Pets we love advent calendars and have ever since we were little pups. We found some pet-themed ones for Christmas. You build up the anticipation for Christmas by opening a window each day from December 1 on to reveal a special picture. If you hang the calendar over a lampshade, the light shines through the picture--as little children we used to get a big charge out of it. A red envelope is included for mailing if you would like to send it as a Christmas gift. Easy to hang or display anywhere! Measures 10"x8"

Puzzles are a good way to keep the children and house-guests occupied over the holidays. These puzzles include 550 pieces. Allow space on a flat surface to accommodate an 18"x24" puzzle when completed.

At Strictly Christmas.

Cat Body, Cat Mind

31-5APSDkpL._SS500_.jpg

At Super Cool Pets we read a pet column by Dr. Michael W. Fox in our local newspaper. Dr. Fox is a compassionate and humane animal-lover, as well as a renowned veterinarian and animal behaviorist. In his new book Cat Body, Cat Mind: Exploring Your Cat's Consciousness and Total Well-Being he "explores the minds, hearts, and bodies of cats." If you find your cat an enigma (and who does not?) this book should help you to learn how to better care for and communicate with your furry friend.

Fox believes that cats, and all animals, have much to teach their human companions - if only humans learn how to listen. In Cat Body, Cat Mind, Fox not only teaches readers to communicate with their cats, he illuminates the extraordinary powers that cats possess - from their amazing ability to empathize to their mysterious ability to find their way home. Fox makes a terrific case for the right of cats and all animals to live safe, healthy lives, free from fear and harm. Only by better understanding and appreciating our cats and by strengthening the cat-human bond, Fox explains, can we do right by them.


Cat Body, Cat Mind also offers a holistic approach to companion-animal care and preventive medicine, including essential nutritional guidelines, as well as behavioral advice and troubleshooting that will help guarantee a healthy and happy pet.



Great book for the cat-lover from a well-respected expert.

At Amazon.
