on Sunday, February 26th, 2012
Posted in: News, Pet Gadgets

The Aikiou Cat Stimulo Feeding Station engages your cat’s mind as she eats her dinner.  Instead of just gobbling down her food quickly so she can get back to her 23-hour nap, she has to use her paw to dig her food out of the tubes.  This “foraging” slows down eating, which can mean fewerRead More…

I used to have a cat some years ago.  Rio lived more than 18 years, but I worried she wouldn’t make it to 5 years because of her habit of chewing on electrical cords.  I wish CritterCord cord protectors had been around back then.  The clear tubing slips over the electrical cord to provide aRead More…

I’m not crazy about most do-it-yourself dog grooming products because most of them are long on promises and short on delivery. And they’re expensive.  For that kind of money, I can just take my pooch over to PetSmart and let them do what they have to do.  I have a Pembroke Welsh Corgi, and forRead More…

Cats are tricky creatures.  They know to stay off the furniture or the kitchen counter while you’re home, but they often go where they want when you aren’t home.  I heard a good way to train cats is to discretely squirt them with a water gun when they do something bad, so they’ll learn toRead More…

My dog Teddy is a nervous sort who would have a stroke if his leash started blinking, but this would work for other, calmer dogs.  You probably take a flashlight when you take your dog out for nighttime walks, and that helps motorists, bicyclists, and other pedestrians see you.  If you don’t keep your dogRead More…
