Plan Ahead -- Pet Emergency Evacuation Jacket

dogevacjacket.jpg

Many of us panic in a crisis, and our pets are no exception. The ultimate outcome is determined by how people handle their fear. Preparation is key.

The new Pet Evacuation Jacket can help you keep your pet under control in the event of a flash flood, fire, earthquake, hurricane, tornado or other emergencies.

The Jacket is made from the same flame-retardant material used by Japanese firefighters and protects your pet from the heat. Transport your pet with the carrying handle and use the pockets on the side of the jacket for any gadgets and supplies you and your pet will need.

Here at Super Cool Pets our goal is to feature products and news that will enhance and improve the lives of the animals who live with us. The sad, bad news is that there are products sold out there that may easily be toxic to our pets and ourselves, unbeknownst to any of us.

The good folks over at HealthyStuff.org tested over 400 pet products, including beds, chew toys, stuffed toys, collars, leashes, and tennis balls. They are finding elevated levels of lead, mercury, arsenic and other chemicals that can be hazardous to human health, especially for pets and children.

The HealthyStuff.org site has an interactive database listing the products by brand, type, or level of concern with a product search as well. You can request new products to be tested. Their product database can also be accessed using the Flash Widget, SMS Texting, and a mobile application.

Ruminations on Being a Cat by Flautist at bookofjoe

cat_mirror.jpg

Who hasn't wondered at some point what life is like for our pets--how do they really view the world? The 'world's most popular blogging anesthesiologist' posted the other day over at bookofjoe:

One project of mine over the past few months has been trying (without success, methinks) to become Gray Cat, see the world as she does and experience things from her point of view.

I sometimes lie down right next to her and look at what she's looking at and try to do a mind-meld with her cat brain but so far nada.

If only I had fur and whiskers to make the incoming more realistic....

And received the following insights from Flautist:

Regarding your project to experience and see things as Gray Cat [above and below] does, I can save you some time and effort. I've already done it with my felines and here's my report: They spend their time dividing everything up into Feels Good or Doesn't Feel Good, and Exciting or Not Exciting. There is broad agreement amongst felines and plenty of individual quirks. Feels Good examples -- chin scratch, sunny spot, chow; Doesn't -- bath, medicine applications, toenail clipping. Exciting -- squirrel chase, bird stalk, cockroach hunt; Not -- waiting for playtime, waiting for rodents to show up, etc. They can occasionally feel deeply conflicted; when I pick up Laurence (cat) I like to hold him upside down like a baby, which he hates, and he plants back feet under my chin in readiness to kick forcefully for release, but he seldom uses that move because he knows he will get back of head scratch which he loves more than anything on earth. Anyway, all that is to say, this is pretty much what you need to know about Gray Cat's (literal) experience of life.

Readers, what do you think?
