My Thoughts…

When I first got our cat, I wanted to find ec0-friendly shampoo for her and after much research, I found that Earth Bath was a good choice. After sometime, I was given the opportunity to review Earth Bath’s latest products which include Cat Wipes and the Cat Grooming Foam.  These products are so easy to use and my cat actually prefers these to a full on bath.

The Cat Grooming Wipes come in Green Tea scent and there’s also a product for hyper sensitive cats. I was sent the Green Tea wipes to use on my cat. This product is fantastic to use whether at home or on the road. You can easily wipe away dander, dirt and residual saliva in your finely furred friend’s coat. This product left our cat’s coat shinier & smelling great and she actually welcomed this unlike her baths!

The other product I tried out is the Cat Grooming Foam.  This product you can apply to your animal and then rub them down with a towel as there is no rinsing required! It also really reduces shedding! It’s so easy to keep your cat that much cleaner with Earth Bath!  I found myself using this often  right before people visited so my cat would be clean and smelling great!

Simple Green Pet Stain and Odor Remover {review and giveaway}

Just like I have to worry about and treat various stains my daughter may make, I also have to have the right cleaners on hand for our four legged baby too.  This is where I turn to Simple Green Pet Stain and Odor Remover as it is non-toxic, biodegradable, and it is People, Pet and Surface safe!

I had the chance to try both the cat and dog Stain and Odor Remover from Simple Green and both have very different smells. Note that these products works on urine, feces, scent-markings, dirt, blood, and throw up.

How do they work and differ from each other?  First the stain removal component is exactly the same in both cleaners but where they differ is the scent additive.

The Dog Stain and Odor Remover is much stronger smelling than the cat product due to the process of deterring remarking from a dog as they often like to go back and remark the same areas. The cat Stain and Odor Remover smell is not as strong as the dog smell. Both do great jobs in removing unwanted smell and odors after applying and letting it sit for two to three hours.

There was absolutely no discoloration, stains, or odd smells in the carpet after using these products from Simple Green. I would highly recommend them to those looking for an ec0-friendly safe cleaning product for pets.

Simple Green CAT Pet Stain and Odor Remover is available at PetSmart and many other fine retailers.

Win it!

One reader will win a free bottle  of either of the pet products – winner can choose CAT or DOG Stain & Odor Remover.

To Enter: Visit Simple Green and let me know another product you like or would like to try! Also let me know if you’d like the dog or cat cleaner.

The Litter Robot {review and giveaway}

Love having a pet cat but don’t want to deal with the mess of cleaning the litter box? Then have I got the Litter Box of your dreams, the Litter Robot!

For the past month or so I’ve been reviewing and using an ECO Unit Litter-Robot which is made from 100% recycled plastic and made right here in the USA. I’ve used another self cleaning litter box and it didn’t come close to pleasing me as much as this one.

Reasons I Like the Litter Robot

The Litter Robot is easy to put together and very easy to clean! It can be run on a schedule or at the push of a button, which is a huge plus!

The cat “business” can be disposed of in ordinary trash bags and the Litter Robot can use clumping litter. There are no special supplies needed as with other self cleaning boxes so no added expenses.
The biggest win for me is that I didn’t have to see, sift, or touch our cats mess!

My cat had no problem whatsoever using this box, she went right in and did her business. I will say that the lip extender reduces a lot of litter from getting on the floor and is a total must.

My only issue is that’s it’s much bigger that your typical litter box so make sure you have lots of space or a room just for your cats that this unit can be placed.

Win it!

I have one ECO Unit Litter-Robot to giveaway!

The Bolt by Frolicat review and giveaway {closed}

FroliCat™ is a line of innovative cat toys that provide the ultimate in interactive play for your feline friends. All FroliCat toys are designed to engage your cat in enthused play. So prepare for pouncing, chasing, jumping & maybe even the occasional half-twist summersault.

Our family cat Miska has been having a lot of fun with Bolt, a laser light pet toy created by Frolicat. I’m sure you like myself was wondering what exactly made this toy so much fun for our pets and convenient to us?  Well, what makes this pet toy different from the rest is that you simply press a button and it’s ready to go on without your controlling it! Bolt has several great modes and features which are as follows;

Product Features

  • Automatic Mode – Moves laser in random patterns for hands-free play session
  • Timer – Automatically turns off after 15 minutes
  • Adjustable – Adjust the mirror to aim laser across a variety of surfaces
  • Manual Mode – Hold in hand to create unique laser patterns
  • Engage your cat in fun, interactive play!

Overall Thoughts…

I really do love the fact that if we are heading out or if I don’t have time, say I’m cooking dinner and kitty wants to play, I can turn on the Bolt and it will keep our cat entertained without her crying for whatever meal I may be cooking.  This also makes our heading out the door to run errands easier as our cat will be so preoccupied by the laser that she doesn’t try to dash out the door with us and into the great outdoors. I think the Bolt would make a great pet toy for both cats and dogs alike!

Buy it!
