Drinkwell Pet Fountain Deluxe

Especially in summer, it is important that pets get enough water. Cats especially don't always drink as much water as they should. Lots of times they can be found on the counter, trying to drink from the faucet. The Drinkwell Pet Fountain provides fresh running water for your cats and dogs. There is plenty here for multiple-pett households.

The kit includes:

* One Drinkwell Fountain

In House Window Birdfeeder

bird%20feeder.jpg

If you are a bird-watcher, this is a really fun way to do it. The Inhouse Window Feeder mounts in a single or double-hung window, allowing you to watch the birds from inside the house. Made of cedar with shatter-proof, one-way mirror film. You can watch the birds and move around the room, but the birds aren't spooked by you. Feeder fits into your window like an air conditioner. Ships with insulation to eliminate leaks. My parents had one for years in their kitchen window in New England, and I never noticed any draft at all. The window can still be completely closed and locked for security.

Great way to educate children about birds!

Dimensions: 23-1/2" x 7" x 12 ". Fits window openings 24" to 39".

Breath & Dental Care Treats

Breath%20Cats.jpg

Does your cat's breath smell like tuna? Noticing some unsightly tartar build-up? Perhaps these Delicious Breath & Dental-Care Treats are a remedy for your cat's oral hygiene. These treats have a gentle-yet-abrasive cereal shell which helps scrape off debris while the eucalyptus/parsley/cinnamon center freshens breath. Then a creamy center breaks down the plaque that can lead to tartar and gum disease. Each treat is approximately 7/8" long with about 140 treats total per 2 pack.

Delicious Breath & Dental-Care Treats for cats and kittens. Dosage: For kittens (under 12 months), 1-2 treats daily; for cats (over 12 months), 2-4 treats daily.

Attracting Hummingbirds with a Hand-Blown Red Glass Feeder

Hummingbirds are attracted to the color red. We currently live in a sub-tropical climate where hummingbirds spend the winter. We have Firespikes (a bush with red stalk flowers) and Confederate Jasmine (heavenly smelling climbing vine with small white blooms) which they love. When we lived up north, we did not have any vegetation that appealed to them, but a hummingbird feeder did. This would be a fun and pretty feeder to have in the back yard this time of year.

The Hand-Blown Red Glass Feeder is both decorative and functional. It is made of hand-blown glass with a copper feeder tube extending to a unique decorative flower tip in red to attract hungry hummingbirds.

It is not necessary to purchase Hummingbird Nectar unless you so desire--you can make your own easily. Mix 1/4 c. sugar and 1 c. water in a cup or jar and add to the clean feeder as needed. It is unadviseable to dye the nectar red.

Measures 5 x 7.25 inches.

Feeding Assistance--Dinner-Up

4-28-07-dinnerup.jpg

We are blogging a lot about food this month! Everyone's favorite subject, including our pets! Thanks to our fellow Blogpire editor over at Networking Audio Video, we have discovered the Dinner-Up. This product was developed by Ray Dinham, a 57 year-old former engineer with cerebral palsy. His invention consists of "a tray attached to a column which, itself, is fixed to a wall or kitchen cabinet.The tray is then wound up and down the column by turning a handle which includes a clutch device."

This product has the potential to be very very helpful to anyone with a disability that prevents them from bending down to pick up pet food bowls, whether permanent or temporary from, for instance, a hip operation. This could mean the difference between someone sharing their home with a pet, or not.

Insight into Pet Food Recall--China's Use of Melamine

cakewhole.jpg

Must read in today's New York Times: China Makes Arrest in Pet Food Case. More accurately, from the tone of the article, it's a "reluctant" China. Apparently it is common practice in China to "sell melamine scrap to animal feed companies and even to food companies that make bakery items."

Granted the media often spreads fear and sensationalism, but China's denial and lack of oversight is chilling.

“Our chemical products are mostly used for additives, not for animal feed,” said Li Xiuping, manager at the Henan Xinxiang Huaxing Chemical Company in central Henan Province. “Melamine is mainly used in the chemical industry, but it can also be used in making cakes.”

More Pet Food Recalled

Latest recall on pet food involves Chenango Valley Pet Foods, according to MSNBC:

The company, working with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, was informed by Wilbur-Ellis that rice protein concentrate shipped to Chenango Valley Pet Foods may be contaminated with melamine. Melamine, an industrial chemical used to make plastics and fertilizers, may lead to illness or fatalities in animals if consumed.

The pet foods were sold to customers in Wisconsin, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania, who in turn sold the products to their customers through catalog mail orders or retail outlets.

The following dry pet foods are involved in the recall:

* Doctors Foster & Smith Chicken & Brown Rice Formula Adult Lite Dog Food. It was sold in containers with net weights of 5, 12.5 and 25 lbs. with code dates best used by Jan. 24, 2009, Feb. 8, 2009, Feb. 26, 2009, April 10, 2009, and April 17, 2009.
* Doctors Foster & Smith Chicken & Brown Rice Formula Adult Lite Cat Food. It was sold in containers with net weights of 3 and 7 lbs. with a code date of best used by March 13, 2009.
* Lick Your Chops Lamb Meal, Rice & Egg Cat Food in packages with a net weight of 4 lbs. and a code date best used by April 29, 2008.
* Bulk Chicken & Brown Rice Formula Adult Lite Dog Food sold to one consignee, SmartPak, in a 2,000-pound tote with a ship date of Feb. 9, 2007.

Meanwhile, China refuses to take responsibility:

China said Thursday it has banned melamine from food products after the chemical was found in exports of vegetable protein shipped to the United States, but rejected it as the cause of dozens of pet deaths in North America.

U.S. Food and Drug Administration officials say they suspect the substance, which is a chemical found in plastics and pesticides, is to blame.

China’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement there was no evidence to support the FDA’s claim but that it would cooperate with the United States to find out what actually killed the animals.

The comments in a statement released by the Chinese Foreign Ministry were the first detailed response from Beijing to concerns that emerged a month ago about the country’s wheat and rice gluten exports.

Update: Voluntary recall from Natural Balance:

Our canned food manufacturer, American Nutrition, from Ogden Utah, just informed us that they are recalling all canned products made in their plant that contain rice protein concentrate. American Nutrition continued by telling us that they added this ingredient to four of our canned products without our knowledge or consent. The four products involved are:

Chicken Formula Canned Dog Food 13 oz
Lamb Formula Canned Dog Food 13 oz
Beef Formula Canned Dog Food 13 oz
Ocean Fish Formula Canned Cat Food 3 oz & 6 oz
