5 More Cat Products Every Cat Needs In Their Life

If you read our last blog you might be looking for more cat products every cat needs in their life. Thankfully, spoiling my cats is practically my other job. Here are 5 more cat products every cat needs in their life.

1. P.L.A.Y. Pet Tent

I’m a huge fan of pet tents, not just P.L.A.Y. (Little Dove makes some adorable mini tents for pets). These tents provide a safe space for your feline companion to retreat to whenever they want. Plus they are aesthetically pleasing.

Pet Teepee Classic @ $69.99

If the $70 price tag is off-putting, I also recommend the Arkmiido Tent for $37.88.

2. P.L.A.Y. Lounge Bed & Matching Throw Pillow

P.L.A.Y. pet tents are great but what if you and your cat could have matching beds? If your cat isn’t a fan of tents, P.L.A.Y. has these adorable lounge beds that you can order a matching pillow for yourself! How cute is that?

Bamboo Lounge Bed Starting @ $108.99

P.L.A.Y. Pet-Proof Pillows @ $34.90

3. from The Field Ultimate Blend Silver Vine/Catnip Mix Tub

Did you know that not all cats are effected by catnip? If your cat doesn’t usually react to catnip try silver vine. Silver vine is in the same family as catnip but cat owners have found success with silver vine when catnip didn’t work. I put my cats toys into a Ziploc bag with some of this catnip, shake it up, and that refreshes them. I also have the spray which is great for toys where the catnip doesn’t stick well.

from The Field Ultimate Blend Silver Vine/Catnip Mix Tub on Amazon @ $7.99/2oz

4. Chilly Dog BarnYarn Cat Toys

These toys are great and sometimes they feature characters! I have one that’s Chicken Little, Pink Panther, and Winne the Pooh.

BarnYarn Animals 2-Pack Cat Toy @ $6.99

And if you cat goes nuts for these (or if you have a lot of felines) they do sell them by the case!

5. Litter Genie

While not technically for your cat to play with and use on their own, this little device is sure to make the chore of litter box cleaning so much easier. Only downside is you have to buy the refills at around $10 a refill it can get pricey.

Litter Genie Plus Cat Litter Disposal System in Silver, 8" L X 8" W X 17" H | Petco

Litter Genie (Prices Vary)
I don’t recommend buying this product off of Amazon because I’m found it either is a) Out of stock b) Way overpriced. I bought mine earlier this year for around $15. If they’re trying to sell you the unit and one refill for $70 shop elsewhere. Petco and Target also sell Litter Genies.

What products can’t your cat live without? Should we make a list of 5 more products? Let us know in the comments or @WetNosesPetSitting or #WetNosesPetsitting

How To Help Your Cat With Anxiety

How to help your cat with anxiety? It’s a question a lot of cat parents ask – myself included. If I’m gone for more than 6 days one of my cats gets a urinary blockage. Here are some ways you can help with anxious pets.

1. Distractions, distractions, distractions

When does your cat seem to be the most anxious? Is it right after you leave? Or when they wake up from a nap and nobody is there? Sometimes having a distraction is the best thing for them. We have a whole blog on interactive puzzle games. These toys can provide just enough distraction to get you out of the house or keep your cat distracted from their anxiety.

2. Add more litter boxes

They say you should have 1.5 litter boxes per cat. Since you can’t have half of a litter box you should have two if you have one cat, three if you have two cats, five if you have four cats, and so on. Count how many litter boxes you have and if you’re cleaning them often enough. Any litter box will do! Some cat owners want to have one or two really nice ones and then an extra, cheaper one. If cleaning the litter box is the issue, we have some products we recommend to help make the chore a little less worse.

3. ThunderShirt

You may have heard of ThunderShirt before. It essentially works the same way swaddling a baby calms them down. The biggest downside to ThunderShirt is it needs to be on your cat prior to the stressful situation so it won’t be as effective if their anxiety is unplanned. These work best for events like Fourth of July or New Years when you know stressors such as fireworks will be happening.

T02-HGS | T02-HGM | T02-HGL

ThunderShirt for Cats @ $39.95

4. Pheromones

Pheromones are much different from essential oils. Essential oils can actually be toxic to pets, but pheromones (produced synthetically) can help provide an anxious pet relief. Adaptil is the dog version and Feliway is the cat version. The dog version will not work for cats and vice versa.

The classic diffuser is great for open floor plans or large rooms as they cover 750sqft. If you have a large house or many closed off rooms, you may need to invest in multiple diffusers. You can learn more about the Feliway Classic Home Diffuser on their website. They also produce a collar and travel sprays for pets on the go or when a diffuser isn’t a viable option.

SENTRY PET CARE Calming Collar for Cats on Amazon @ $19.99

5. Calming Sprays

Calming sprays can also be a good option if your cat likes to hang out in one specific area. These don’t require being changed out monthly, only when they’re empty, nor putting a collar onto your pet.

 

Feliway Cat Calming Pheromone Spray @ $20.59

6. Calming Chews

Calming chews can be bought over-the-counter at most pet stores. These chews aren’t as strong as something you’d get from the vet but provide a natural way to help calm your cat. Depending on which one you choose they may be hard or soft treats. Some brands also include hemp seed oil.

7. CBD Oil

Cat owners have found varying success with CBD Oil helping their pet with anxiety and you may as well if you’re looking for a more holistic and natural approach to managing your pets anxiety. Before starting CBD Oil make sure to talk with your vet, especially if your pet is on any medication, to make sure it’s safe to give them. There’s lots of different brands out there and methods of delivery, you’re sure to find one that fits you and your cats needs. Some brands to start your research are:

8. Consider talking with your vet

Just like with people, some cats need anxiety medication to help manage their anxiety. Pets can’t articulate how they’re feeling but if you’ve tried all of the above ways it may be time to have a discussion with your vet. Make sure you discuss you and your pets needs. Do they need a slight sedative or something stronger? Is there a liquid option if your cat doesn’t take pills? Don’t have a regular vet? We have you covered. Here’s our 5 tips for picking a veterinarian you love.

Coping With The Loss Of A Pet

Coping With The Loss Of A Pet Header

Coping With The Loss Of A Pet

If you’re reading this, you probably recently had to say goodbye to your beloved pet as they crossed the Rainbow Bridge and are wondering how to cope with the loss of a pet. Firstly, it’s okay to grieve. Secondly, no matter how long your pet was in your life they made a profound impact on you and it’s okay to take time to feel these emotions and make room for them. Your pet was not “just a cat” or “just a dog”. People have been telling those who have lost their pets this for centuries (Dewey 1890-1910). Your pet was a member of your family who was loved very much. You still remember the day you brought your beloved pet home and as the years passed the bond you two shared grew. This pain of losing your companion can be overwhelming but remember, it’s going to be okay and you should never feel guilty or ashamed for what you are feeling after the loss of a pet.

Grieving the Loss of a Pet

Grief is different for everyone. For some it may only take a few days, for others – years. You may go through all or some of the stages of grief during this time in any order:

  • Denial
  • Anger
  • Bargaining
  • Depression
  • Acceptance

It’s important while you’re experiencing grief to reach out to others. You are not alone in your grieving. Talk to trusted friend or family member, a professionally-trained therapist, or reach out to one of the numerous pet loss hotlines around the country.

Here are some more ways to help you through the grief:

  • Donate to an animal related charity or to the shelter you adopted them from in memorial of your pet.
  • Write down your emotions.
  • Purchase a pet memorial – Etsy has many creative artists who can memorialize your pet.
  • Stay connected with friends, you don’t have to be alone with your emotions during this if you don’t want to be.
  • Take care of yourself. Do something that makes you feel good even if you don’t think it will help.
  • Sticking to your daily habits – making sure to shower, put away dishes, and doing laundry are some things that come to mind.

Coping with the loss of a pet is a personal process and figuring out what helps you through your grief is important. Everybody is different. If you are feeling that this is too much to bare, please remember there are always people here to talk at 1-800-273-8255.

Children Grieving the Loss of a Pet

The loss of a pet may be the first time your child has first experienced death and can be a traumatic experience. This time is when you can teach your child about grief and emotional pain and how to work through it. How you handle this process will determine how the child views the experience and how they’ll understand coping with the loss of a pet in the future. Honesty is the best policy, even when talking to children, as later in life they may feel betrayed or hurt when they understand that Fluffy didn’t go to a farm. Of course the age of your child will depend on what language you use when talking to them but making clear statements and answering questions honestly is a step in the right direction towards healing.

Here are some other steps you can take to help a child cope with the loss of a pet:

  • Allow your child to express their grief and let them see your grief.
  • Reassure them that it’s not their fault.
  • Allow your child to participate. This could involve having them help you pick out a memorial or them picking out their own. It could also be helping them to put the name plate on your pets urn if you opted for cremation and if your urn has a removable name plate.
  • Don’t be quick to rush out and get a new pet. Ask your child before getting a new pet if they feel ready.

Getting a New Pet

Only you know when it’s time to start considering adopting a new pet. Some people find the emptiness of the house to be too much and adopt a new pet soon. Others take months or years to open their homes to a new pet. There is no right time frame to do this. If other members of your household are grieving the loss of a pet, consult with them before adopting a new pet. If you’re unsure if you’re ready to adopt a new pet but want an animals companionship, consider volunteering at an animal rescue or shelter. This can help you understand your emotions and grief better and if you’re ready to adopt a new pet.

Conclusion

Coping with the loss of a pet is deeply personal and there is no right or wrong way to approach it. Children may have difficulty understanding what has happened but being honest with them can help them through their grief. Only you know when your heart is ready to welcome a new pet into your home, don’t rush it. Below I have included some poems I have found in my travels around the internet that have provided me comfort during the passing of my pets. I hope that you may find even an ounce of comfort within them as well:

Eyes Bright, Claws Sharp

ᛖᛁᛖᛋ ᛒᚱᛁᚷᚻᛏ,

ᚳᛚᚪᚹᛋ ᛋᚻᚪᚱᛈ,

ᛏᚪᛁᛚ ᚻᛖᛚᛞ ᚻᛁᚷᚻ.

ᚷᚩ ᚳᛖᛖᚾᛚᛁ ᛁᚾᛏᚩ ᚦᛖ ᛘᛁᛋᛏ, ᚩᛚᛞ ᚹᚪᚱᚱᛡᚱ.

ᚠᚪᛚᚻᚪᛚᛚᚪ ᚹᚪᛁᛏᛋ ᚠᚩᚱ ᛁᚩᚢ.

Eyes bright,

claws sharp,

tail held high.

Go keenly into the mist, old warrior.

Valhalla waits for you

The Rainbow Bridge Poem

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together.

5 Ways to Keep Your Pets Cool in Summer

5 Ways to Keep Your Pets Cool in Summer Header

5 Ways to Keep Your Pets Cool in Summer

With heatwaves sweeping the country it’s important to keep your pets cool in the summer. We have a few ideas you can try to help cool down your pets. Some of these ideas are great for indoor and outdoor use, others are more suitable for indoor or outdoor use.

1. Refill Water Dishes Daily or as Needed

Keeping your pets hydrated is one of the best ways to help keep them cool.You should be refilling water dishes at least once a day but if you notice your pets dish is getting low or empty, make sure to refill it. Dogs need between 0.5-1 ounces of water per pound of body weight per day. Cats need 3.5-4.5 ounces of water per 5 pounds of body weight per day.

If you’re looking for some more creative ways to keep your pets hydrated check out our recent post.

2. Frozen Treats

You can either purchase or make your own frozen treats to help keep your pets cool and hydrated. Here’s a recipe for our Frozen Apple Smoothie Bites. But if you’re not into making treats, companies like The Bear & The Rat make healthy frozen treats for dogs and cats.

3. Cooling Mat

Cooling mats are a nice way to help pets get that full body cool down during the hot days. These work similar to ice packs in that you chill them or fill them with cool water and they’ll stay cool for quite awhile. These a great to keep on hand even if you don’t plan on using them outside in case your AC breaks. Recently mine went out for a few days and it was sweltering in here. I laid out a few of these and everyone eventually found one to lay on.

Chillz Cooling Mat For Dogs on Amazon, Starting @ $35.97

4. Cooling Bandana/Towel

Cooling bandana’s and towels cool your pet by using evaporation. For these, you’ll dunk them in water, ring them out, and then put them on your pet – unless it instructs you otherwise. As your pet hangs out outside the water will evaporate and create a nice cooling sensation for your pet.

ALL FOR PAWS Chill Out Dog Ice Bandana on Amazon, Starting @ $15.05

5. Cooling Vest

Is a bandana or towel not enough for your pet? Try out these cooling vests! They work the same way as the bandanas and towels but provide the full body experience of the cooling mat while your pet can still be on the move.

SGODA Dog Cooling Vest Harness Cooler Jacket on Amazon, Starting @ $32.95

RUFFWEAR, Swamp Cooler Evaporative Dog Cooling Vest on Amazon @ $59.95

and a bonus….

6. Stay in the shade or AC

With record temperatures hitting the country, sometimes the best thing to do is stay indoors in the AC or near a fan. If you have to go out, try to stick to shaded areas.

5 Cat Products Every Cat Needs In Their Life

I’ll be the first to admit, my cats are spoiled. Their toy bin is overflowing, they have their own dedicated cat-food pantry, and each room as some type of cat furniture in it. Did I mentioned that all three of my heated blankets have been confiscated by them as well? They even have numerous puzzle toys!

Despite their many luxuries, there are some products I have found that stand out from the rest.

1. Metal Litter Scoop

This isn’t a fun one for your cats but it’ll make scooping the litter box a bit less of a chore. Any metal litter scoop works. They’re sturdier than plastic and last longer. I’ve had the same one for years.

DuraScoop Jumbo Cat Litter Scoop on Amazon @ $12.99

2. Yeowww! Catnip Toys

If you’re only going to buy you cat one toy this month, a Yeowww! Catnip Toy is the way to go. These toys are a staple around my house because of their durability and potency.

 

Yeowww! Catnip Cat Toys Banana Cigar Rainbow 3 Pack

YEOWWW! Catnip Toy Variety Pack Cigar & Banana & Rainbow on Amazon @ $14.99

3. Karma Cat Toys

These toys are made of felt and made in Nepal with a simple goal: “to provide economic stability for our artisan partners in a way that is environmentally sustainable”. No two toys are exactly alike! I have the 3″ 3 pack of Veggies and the Snake & Mouse set.

Karma Cat Toys | 3 Pack Vegetables 3"

Karma Cat 3″ Veges, Pack of 3 Toys @ $9.95

4. K&H Heated Cat Bed

Spoil your feline royalty with a heated cat bed. This bed is nice because it only is warm when your cat is in it and responds to your pets natural body temperature to help regular the heat. Despite having two of these, they always seem to fight over the same one…

 

K&H Heated Cat Bed

K&H Pet Products Thermo-Kitty Heated Cat Bed, Starting @ $77.99

5. Messy Cats Litter Box Cleaning Brush

Also not a fun thing for your cats but I promise this is worth every penny. I own two of these, one to clean litter boxes and the other to clean my bathtub! It’s no wonder they’re sold out at the time of writing.

Cat Litter Box Brush | MessyCats

Messy Cats Litter Box Cleaning Brush @ $8.00

And a bonus….

6. Neko Flies

Neko Flies are difficult to get your hands on as they were discontinued in 2019 but if you can get one, do it. I love this toy and am sad to see it no longer being easily obtainable. These toys provided an interchangeable “bug” which moved in a way similar to natural bugs. Some of their attachments also included iridescent plastic which, when combined with the sound, really make it seem like your cat was chasing a bug. The craftsmanship was well done too which is why I had no problem forking over $50 to get my hands on one.

Neko Flies Cat Toy

This is the attachment I own. At the time of writing it appears Roarcats still has these in stock for $13.99 (excluding the wand you’ll need) but you can also get them from Amazon.
