Merrick Holistic Cat and Dog Food -- Amazing Customer Service

merrick.jpg

In an era of corporate ruthlessness towards consumers, some companies still care. Consumerist reports that Monica received a bad can of cat food from Merrick Pet Food. She shares her positive story:

Just wanted to let you know of a good experience I had with Merrick Pet Food. I include this brand of cat food in the variety that I buy my cats. They have good products overall, good ingredients, quality, etc.

Well a few weeks ago I had the horrible experience of opening a rancid can. Definitely one of the worst smells I've ever encountered, and it sprayed on my hands when I opened it which left a great lingering stench. So I contacted the company and provided lot information of the can. They replied with the usual apologies and asked for my address so they could send a coupon. I was honestly expecting a coupon to get a free can of cat food.

Well, today I received a package from them with a bag of dry food and a coupon for a case of 24 cans of cat food, so about $45 worth of products. This was definitely above and beyond what I expected, they won me back. Good company and they'll keep getting my business.

Merrick Pet Care is family-owned and offers holistic cat and dog food and treats. See them on the web at http://www.merrickpetcare.com. Their products are available at Amazon.

One Quart Heated Pet Water Bowl

heatedbowl.jpg

Outdoor water bowl freezing up? This 1-quart Heated Pet Water Bowl is thermostatically controlled to operate only when necessary. Comes with an heavy-duty "anti-chew" cord protector. Perfect for small animals.

It goes without saying that our pets should be not be outside for a prolonged time period in cold weather. That said, many of us like to keep a water bowl in the back yard or pen for the times the pets are outdoors, but it freezes up overnight. Some pets love to play in relatively cool weather and are fine as long as someone keeps an eye on them.

Automated Pet Hair and Dirt Removal -- Neato Robotic Vacuum Cleaner

neatorobotic.jpg

The popular Roomba will soon have some competition. According to Priya Ganapati at Wired.com "despite a passionate community of users, Roomba has faced a few criticisms":

The gadget uses a randomized algorithm to clean a room, which has led to complaints that it doesn't always cover an area completely. Roomba has also suffered from a small bin that limits how much it can clean on a single battery charge. That also limits its ability to clean multiple rooms.

The new Neato Robotic Vacuum Cleaner is purportedly smarter than the Roomba. While the Roomba utilizes a zig zag pattern, the Neato cleans back-and-forth using mapping technology to determine the room's perimeter and locate walls and furniture up to 4 meters via a laser-guidance system, rather than through impact.

Dust-bin removal is out the back of the Roomba and from a relatively larger bin on the top of the Neato. Other Neato features are scheduling, detection of drop-offs and stairwells, and a low profile (less than four inches high) allowing it to clean under beds, sofas, and toe-kicks in the kitchen.

The Neato XV-11 all-floor vacuum system will be available for purchase in the U.S. this coming February 2010 priced at $399.
