If you have a cat, chances are you are aware of the need for cat scratchers and scratching posts. These are one of the best ways to keep cats from scratching your furniture. If only “kitten mittens” (as seen on It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) were a practical option. Designed to keep down noise and stop the scratching of furniture. That is, if the cats didn’t hate them so much
So, you’re thinking about getting your furry friend a cat house or condo. Where do you start? Since there are so many options, I have listed my top choices that resulted from my research here in every category I can think of. That way, you can match your style, purpose and budget. Let’s lose ourselves in the magical world of cat houses and cat condos. Here we go…
For this crazy cat lady, there aren’t many downsides to having a cat but the litter box is definitely one. Of course, you need a litter box but they’re ugly, they stink and take up space that is often at a premium. Cat litter box furniture to the rescue! There are many different kinds of cat furniture like scratching posts and cat houses that are fun for both human and cat. But, we’re not talking about fun now. This is serious. Cat litter box furniture is a necessity once you see how easy, useful, cost effective and stylish it is. What kinds of useful furniture can be made into litter box furniture? Let’s find out…
I can honestly say that I never thought I would be spending my time writing about cat litter. It’s not glamorous at all. But, it’s something us cat owners deal with regularly so it’s important. What is the best cat litter? And why? Had this been years ago, I would have hands down voted that Maxx Scoop was the best. To my, and many other Canadian’s dismay, Purina discontinued Maxx Scoop in Canada. Oh, the horror! They replaced it with Tidy Cat which is NOT AT ALL the same. After much frustrating research trying to find a new brand, I can now say that in our house the best cat litter is Arm and Hammer cat litter – specifically the clump and seal line.
Have you ever been asked the question: “If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?” I have, and it’s a tough one. For my cat, Laila, it isn’t tough at all. She would respond without any further thought and answer Fancy Feast Broths. She would respond without any further thought and answer Fancy Feast Broths.

Worldwide, us cat enthusiasts spend more than $2 billion dollars on cat treats every year. Crazy. It’s such a huge market that I’m sure you can imagine there are almost too many options to choose from. How do you decide on the best cat treats? The simplest answer is to let your cat decide. But costly and potentially wasteful taste tests with your cat are not realistic for most of us. Hopefully this review of Temptations cat treats will save you both time and money.
Let me start by saying that the 21st Century Inflatable Protective Pet Collar was a godsend for me (and my cat, Laila, of course). It was a dark time for us both when Laila had a bad reaction on her back to a rabies injection. A node developed and she could not stop licking and scratching it. It got so bad that it became infected. I told her “Just stop licking and scratching and it’ll get better”. She didn’t listen.
