If your cat doesn't do much more than lay around the house and sleep or eat, she could probably benefit from some exercise.  My cat, Rio, used to get her exercise at 3:00am, dashing around the house like a crazy thing, determined to wake up everybody in the apartment building I lived in at the [...]

We love our pets just like any other member of our family (maybe more depending on the family!), but the sad fact is that a large percentage of pets are left alone at home during the day while their owners are away at work or school. This means that the pet might get lonely for [...]

Of all the product reviews that I wrote last year, I posted the most reviews about activity trackers. I wear an activity tracking device every day for two reasons. First, I like to see how many steps I've walked each day and two, I earn points that I can exchange for money through my day [...]

tail-lights-safety-lights-for-horses

I always cringe a little when I'm driving along and see horses and riders sharing the road.  It's not because I don't like horses or don't want to share the road.  It's because I'm always afraid that something will happen and a horse or rider will be injured or worse because someone in a car [...]

CritterZone-air-cleaner

When I think of air filters, I picture large devices that are too big to use in an office cubicle - and they certainly won't work in a car.  The Air Naturalizer from CritterZone is only 4.5"H x 2.75"W x 2"D, so it's small enough to place discreetly near your pet's bed or litter box to [...]
