Pet Scoop -- Pet Parents Choose Upscale Pet Foods

gourmetpetfood.jpg

Now that our pets are more members of the family than mere possessions, many pet parents aren't just settling for any old pet food. Pet Foods Go Gourmet | NYTimes.com reports that the giant pet-food companies like Nestlé Purina Pet Care have added luxury lines. The thinking is that these companies are capitalizing on the notorious pet-food recall of 2007, when contaminated gluten and rice protein from China caused fatal kidney failure in thousands of cats and dogs around the world.

Overnight, thousands of concerned pet owners shifted their allegiance to small companies with a brand identity built on using pure ingredients, often marketed as "human grade" and manufactured in plants that also produce canned food for humans. In some cases ingredients are packed by hand, with chunks and shreds layered for maximum eye appeal.

Purina controls about a third of the pet-food market, but boutique companies such as Fromm, Evanger's, Merrick, Blue Buffalo have made steady gains the past few years.

PetFusion SmartGrip Cat Litter Mat

smartgriplittermat.jpg

Some cat owners clean up cat litter off their floor several times a day. Free up your time! The popular PetFusion SmartGrip Cat Litter Mat is made of soft material that acts as a cushion to prevent litter from bouncing off into the air and onto your floors. The litter is held in place by small indentations with an outer channel to catch any stray litter.

Usually cat litter mats trap litter under carpet fibers, making cleaning difficult and leading to mold and mildew. This mat is easy to clean--sweep, vacuum with hand-held or attachment, and wipe with a damp sponge or cloth to eliminate odors. Just pour any clean litter back into the box.

Its neutral color and design goes nicely in any room of the house. It's flexible to fit in tight spaces, including closets or small bathrooms.

PetScoop -- Pet Airways Purportedly in Trouble

petairlines.jpg

Pet Airways, the pet air transport service which once held so much promise, is having financial difficulties. The airline is reportedly still taking reservations, but no longer offering flights. Since their service began, Pet Airways claims to have flown more than 7,000 cats and dogs, and one potbellied pig. The NY Times has the story.

Now, Pet Airways has fallen on tough times. The carrier -- which based on its recent schedule typically offers two eastbound routes a month and two westbound ones -- did not have any flights between Dec. 16 and Jan. 16, according to a regulatory filing, and it is unclear if it has had any flights since then. A New York Times reporter looking into the airline had reservations canceled twice, once in January and another last week. Her credit card company canceled the charge.

Dogs, Cats, Fish and Birds -- How Much Do They Cost Every Year?

petexpenses.jpg

As you know cats can live 15 to 20 years and dogs 10 to 15 years. We love them dearly, but the cost does add up. According to How Much Does Owning A Pet Cost In A Year? | Bankrate.com here are the annual stats:

  • Average yearly cost for a dog: $580 to $875.
  • Average yearly cost for a cat: $670.
  • Average yearly cost for a bird: up to $200.
  • Average yearly cost for fish: $35.

So if you want a pet but are all about costs, fish are the best bet. But possibly not the most rewarding. And even though those vet visits are not cheap, preventive medicine is the way to go. Check-ups can catch problems early when they are likely less expensive and good care can ward off many illnesses.


Jeff Blyskal, senior editor of Consumer Reports magazine, says pet owners should think twice before buying health insurance for their pets. "They scare you with the worst-case scenario, and the worst-case scenario is very unlikely," he says.

He says it's better to "self-insure" by socking away money on your own for any medical costs and unexpected emergencies.

And no matter how much pet food companies market fancy ingredients and additives, Blyskal also recommends no-frills pet foods, which still have to meet industry standards. "Those extra things have not been proven to have any benefit," he says.

Also, avoid overfeeding pets or slipping them table scraps. "They'll get diseases like humans," such as diabetes and heart disease, he says.

Oh sure, just look at those big brown eyes. Maybe just a smidgin.
