Pet Memorials

Today is Memorial Day. Traditionally this US holiday commemorates men and women who sacrificed their lives in military service. We honor them here as well.

Many of us also remember our loved ones on this day--the ones who are no longer with us, including our pets. I first experienced the terrible feeling of pet loss when I was 8. One of our dogs was a hit and run victim. I have no photos, just memories from long ago.


That's why SuperCoolPets likes this Pet Memorial.. It is tasteful and is a personalized photo pet memorial. Your original photo is "faithfully reproduced on a weather- and sun-resistant glazed porcelain tile" that can be attached to monuments, headstones, or urns, either indoors or outdoors. Orvis will return your original photos.

Of course nowadays photos are much cheaper to develop and easily stored on our computers, so you may prefer a personalized Cast Aluminum Memorial:


Or a personalized one custom-made in slate or marble:

Standing/Hanging birdbath

Here at SuperCoolPets we love our birds. Not only the sweet cockatiels who live with us, but also the wild(er) ones who live nearby and visit our feeders. I was taught to "feed the birds" by my grandmother as a toddler and have loved them ever since. In those days, we just threw the seed on the ground and the birds pecked around. We will have more on bird feeders in later posts.


birdbaths fit any budget--they range from $13 or so to more pricey. We have found this exquisite and affordable Opus Standing/Hanging birdbath . The bath is fluted metal 14.5" in diameter and can be hung from a hook or tree branch. Or if you prefer mount the bath on the beautiful detailed-leaf stand.

Rust resistant finish.Includes hanging hardware and ground spike. Looks delicate so treat with TLC! Opus Standing/Hanging birdbath sold by Picnic World Plus.

Add a Water Wiggler to circulate water in your birdbath--no wiring, easy!

Cat Fence Enclosure

A family I know recently moved to a new home, and immediately had cat issues. Their litter box was placed in the laundry room, but the kitties were not using it. That problem has since been resolved, but it created a huge dilemma. One option considered was to keep them outside. This enclosure might be a good solution for this family.


Purr…fect Cat Fence is a free-standing backyard fence enclosure for cats. Your cat can safely enjoy being outdoors without the hazards. The best of both worlds. No pre-existing fence is required. A lot of times people have issues with fencing from a visual standpoint, but the impact here is minimal. It can be installed by the homeowner in any configuration you choose, even in front of an existing fence.

Why it works, according to the site...

Our cat fence enclosure material is flexible, so most cats don't like to climb it. For those acrobatic cats that somehow get near the top, the "Houdini-Proof" arch along the top of the enclosure safely turns them back toward the ground.
Buy at Purr...fectFence.

Chihuahua Dog Topiary


In honor of the Mexican holiday Cinco de Mayo (May 5), we are celebrating the Chihuahua which takes its name from the Mexican state abutting west Texas and New Mexico. Maybe it would be fun to start a Chihuahua Dog Topiary this spring in the yard. We pass by a dog topiary every day, and it never fails to catch my eye.

The topiary frame is made of steel with a durable epoxy coat finish. The topiary frame is fabricated to scale for an authentic natural appearance. Each form is a 2-part construction which provides easy open and close access to fill the form easily. You can order the topiary form without moss or with moss already filled in the frame. Bagged moss is also available if you want to purchase the moss and apply it yourself. Complete assembly and planting instructions are included with each frame ordered.

Dimensions: Height 16" x Length 16" x Width 5" Available at FinePetProducts in many different breeds.

Pet Peek ™ Wooden Fence Window Lets Your Pet See Out


Great solution for those of us with a wood fence enclosure for our dogs. Wood has the benefit of no one being able to see in, but also the drawback that the pup can't look out. It must get pretty boring without any view, and dogs are naturally nosy, pun intended. You can add this clever "window to the world".

The Pet Peek™ window is a durable, clear, hard acrylic dome 9.5 inches in diameter, with a black trim-ring and all necessary hardware for easy do-it-yourself installation into your wooden fence.

Skamper Ramp Pet Pool Ramp


Now that warm weather is here, pool owners will be opening their pools. The Skamper-Ramp Pet Pool Ramp can be a lifesaver for the pet that gets stranded or tired in the pool.

It provides an easy access point out of the pool, also effective on floating docks, boat swim platforms, most boats, thin ice rescues and vinyl pools. It is constructed of heavy duty polypropylene recycled box-corrugated material.

The ramp purportedly is 8 mm chemical and UV resistant and will withstand high levels of chlorine and other pool related chemicals.

The Skamper Pet Pool Ramp can either anchor using holes drilled into your pool deck or be secured using other tie down points such as pool cover, skimmers or ladder railings. Comes with all instructions, ramp, hardware.

Glamour Cat Planter


This is getting to be the time of year to be putting out plants on our patios and porches. We love this Glamour Cat Planter--it is adorable and so unique. The kitty has beautiful marble eyes and curlicue whiskers. It has a removable, 6" cachepot, but of course any 6" pot will do. Coiled neck and tail spring to the touch. Made of weather-sturdy metal with a powder-coat finish.

Cute way to add some personality to your yard! This would make a great housewarming or hostess gift as well for the cat-lover.

Size: 22"H x 24"W. Glamour Cat Planter

Outdoor Cat Playpen


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
