TATTLE TALE® Vibration Pet Trainer

6740.jpg


Ever get tired of pet hair all over the sofa, the comforter, or your sheets? Must we close doors, install gates and cover our furniture for the rest of our lives? Maybe those days are over.

This TATTLE TALE® pet trainer is an alarm triggered by the slightest vibration. It could be effective in keeping cats off counters, car hoods, your dog or cats off the furniture, beds and maybe even Mr Tony the cat out of your baby's crib and playpen. The alarm will reset and sound again. Works 24/7, even if you are not home or in the room.

Our only reservation is intentionally scaring a pet. It can be hurtful and may even backfire. Depends on the disposition of your particular animal. TATTLE TALE® can also be used as a security alarm to detect tampering of doors, drawers, windows, gates, cabinets and any 'off-limits' area.

Dimensions: 4 1/2" x 2" x 1 1/2". Uses a 9 volt battery.

Outdoor Cat Playpen

73818.jpg

This item has sold out. It has been updated to:

Many 21st century cats are indoor kitties. Of course, it wasn't always this way. Fresh air is good for everyone, and your cat is no exception. The Outdoor Cat Playpen allows your cat to have the best of both worlds. This pen will keep one or more cats safe (assuming they get along!) while exposing them to the sunshine and breezes spring and summer bring. Plus they get to watch whatever is going on outside, like the birds at the birdbath.

Made of rugged water-resistant nylon mesh that protects cats, and supported by a powder-coated steel alloy frame that opens like a fan into a hexagon, the pen easily assembles using Velcro, zippers and four ground stakes. The interior of the pen has two suspended hammocks on which cats can rest while watching their surroundings, and a clear vinyl zippered doorway. Includes three flags with attached bells that serve as cat toys. The pen folds easily for storage, is easy to clean, and includes a zippered storage bag.

Dimensions: 38" H x 48" W x 24" D. (17 1/2 lbs.) Outdoor Cat Playpen

Pet Food Recall Expands to Third Company

Royal Canin USA--their take on "Knowledge and Respect". How ironic:

Welcome to Royal Canin pet foods The ethos of the Royal Canin brand is based on its unique vision of the dog and the cat :the conviction that dogs and cats are not human beings but animals and as a result, true respect obliges us to treat them as such.

True respect implies certain obligations, of which one is Knowledge : to truly know the animal and understand its specific physiological and nutritional requirements, and, in consequence, guarantee it a "tailor made" food in line with its real nutritional needs.

The current culprit provides a list of their hazardous foods here: Royal Canin USA. Their statement:

Pet owners should immediately stop feeding their pets the Royal Canin USA dry pet food products listed above. Pet owners should consult with a veterinarian if they are concerned about the health of their pet. No other Royal Canin diets are affected by this recall and CONTINUE TO BE safe for pets to eat.

Update on 4/20 from the Houston Chronicle:

WASHINGTON — A third company on Friday recalled pet foods made with an imported Chinese ingredient only recently found to have been contaminated by an industrial chemical.

The pet food ingredient, rice protein concentrate, is the second found in the U.S. to be contaminated by melamine. Previously, testing revealed that wheat gluten also had been contaminated.

Royal Canin USA said it was recalling some of its dry dog and cat foods made with tainted rice protein concentrate.

Also this week, the French company's South African unit recalled a range of dog and cat dry pet foods after they were found to contain a third ingredient, corn gluten, also contaminated with melamine. Those products were sold in South Africa and Namibia.

U.S. customers with questions about Royal Canin's recall can call the company at 800-592-6687 or visit its Web site: http://www.royalcanin.us .

Wilbur-Ellis Co., a U.S. importer of the tainted rice protein, has recalled all the ingredient it had distributed to five U.S. pet food manufacturers. The San Francisco company in turn urged its customers to recall any products that may be on store shelves.

Earlier this week, pet food companies Natural Balance, of Pacoima, Calif., and Wilton, Conn.-based Blue Buffalo recalled cat and dog foods made with the contaminated rice protein concentrate.

Pet Food Recall Widens

dogs.jpg


The news of the most recent pet food recall has been a bit eclipsed by the media coverage of the tragedy at Virginia Tech. The recall now includes Natural Life. For complete (we hope) information visit the FDA website.

Here's the current list (as of 4/17/07) of recalled pet foods: cats and dogs.

Precise Portion Control Pet Feeder

An answer for those days we cannot always be home when it is feeding time! A feeder that can be programmed to automatically dispense the correct amount of food. The jar holds five pounds of dry food, possibly enough for several days, depending on the size (and appetite) of your pet. The food is served one to three times a day in 1/4-cup increments up to a total of two cups.

So this Programmable Feeder is best for cats and smaller to medium sized dogs (our Goldens eat more than 2 cups per day). But it can provide peace of mind if you need to leave your cats for several days, have an erratic schedule, get caught in traffic or anything else that may crop up.

Requires three D batteries. Dimensions:15" H x 9" W x 14 1/2" L.

Pet Friendly Lodging

frostcover.gif


With the summer travel months approaching, many of us are starting to make vacation plans away from home. For those who find it unthinkable to leave their pet behind, or don't have satisfactory pet-sitting arrangements, there are plenty of hotels that provide quality, pet-friendly accommodations.

According to an article in March 30, 2007 New York Times:

In a culture in which dogs and cats have become surrogate children (and grandchildren) and are sometimes better dressed than their owners, a growing number of hotels and resorts have welcomed four-legged guests in recent years, including the Four Seasons, the Ritz-Carlton, the Loews and the Kimpton hotels. But now, several luxury condominiums and private residence clubs are taking pet-friendly policies further by offering services and amenities that rival those meant for humans, including grooming sessions, swim classes, massage treatments (no mere belly-scratch) and even a doggie psychic.

"There's easily been a 300 percent increase in the number of lodgings accepting pets in the last three years," said Derek Welsh, president of BringYourPet.com, a Web site devoted to peripatetic pets and their humans. "The trend is definitely shifting toward higher-end hotels. In order to truly compete, they are going above and beyond with amenities, trying to one-up the competitor."

Cat Cocoon

cat_cocoon_detail.jpg


My grand-kitty, Tony, loves cardboard boxes, second only to catnip. Christmas is a fabulous party for him, and his favorite non-family member is the UPS guy. Our Mr. Tony might find the Cat Cocoon irresistible.

It is constructed from layers of laser-cut corrugated cardboard creating a rippled texture. Good place to hide from the dog or just be alone. He also could lie on top of it and take a nap, scratch the ridges, massage his face and back. The surface is dotted with peepholes ranging in size from 1" to 3.5" wide in case Mr. Tony wants to check out the outside world while he is in there. Very unique item--certainly a conversation piece!

Dimensions: 28"L x 21"W x 15"H.
Interior: 25"L x 18"W x 13.5"H.

Days Ago Digital Day Counter--Never Guess Again!

uses_pet.jpg


Great idea! Days Ago Digital Day Counter is a digital day counter that attaches to a variety of surfaces with a magnetic or suction backing and counts up to 99 days to track the age of the item. This has almost an infinite amount of uses in our daily routines, but as applies to pet care: for medications such as heartworm, earmites & flea; litter box changes, cage cleaning, grooming and so on. Your imagination is the limit. I know this will be on my gift list!
