Butterfly Cat Scratcher

Hi everyone! Today I want to tell you about a great product from a company that has been in business since 1986.

* Disclaimer: We received a butterfly design corrugated scratcher from Cat Claws, Inc. in exchange for a fair review.

Cat Claws, Inc. was started by Bill and Gale Seliskar. Bill worked for a corrugated box company in 1986 and realized their cats were always scratching the samples he brought home ( in addition to their couch). Once they made these and added catnip, the cats preferred them to the couch and the business was started.

In 2006, they added Scratch ‘n Shapes to their product line. These led to the start of their retail brand, Imperial Cat in 2007.When Bill passed away on 2009 and his wife in 2010, their 2 daughters took over and the company continues to thrive by offering smart solutions for devoted cat owners. The company is based in Morrilton, Arkansas and makes many products right in the USA.

This butterfly is their newest design. And Sammy definitely approves.

It sells for $24.95 and comes with a big bag of catnip to sprinkle on for more fun. Sammy is 19 pounds, possibly 20 and it was plenty big enough for him. Joanie and Phoebe have enjoyed it too but Sammy is the scratcher king of this house.

Ready for the Holidays with #CLUMPandSEAL

Hi everyone! I love all holidays and host every one of them. The cats are not as thrilled about them as I am because they have to be contained in either our bedroom or the spare bedroom.

I am being compensated for helping spread the word about ARM & HAMMER CLUMP & SEAL™ available at PetSmart®, but 15andmeowing only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers.

Some of my guests are thrilled that the cats are not walking about. I don’t actually do it for their benefit though, I do it for the safety of my cats. I want to be sure they do not escape out of fear and I also don’t want them eating any people food that could be bad for them. There is always someone in addition to Grammie that wants to visit with them though.

Imagine 6 or 7 cats in one room with a litter box, you could be in for a big surprise when you open that door. That is why I am thankful for ARM & HAMMER CLUMP & SEAL™because I know there will be no surprises, only a fresh smelling room.

100_9887

I know I have told you before, but I will tell you again. ARM & HAMMER CLUMP & SEAL™ litter actually forms a tight seal around odors. The Microguard provides bacterial odor control that lasts 7 days.  There is still plenty of time for you to stock up on ARM & HAMMER CLUMP & SEAL™ at your local PetSmart, you can order online at this link click here you can always go to your local store to get some too. To find your nearest PetSmart you can use their store locator by clicking here

As much as I love to entertain, the best part of the holidays for me is spending time with my kitties. With 7 days odor protection, I don’t have to change the litter in their boxes as often which means more kitty time. No matter what holidays you celebrate, I hope they are all love enjoyable, love filled and odor free.

An Odor Free Home is a Happy Home #CLUMPandSEAL

Hi everyone! As you know, I have 13 cats so I am sure you can imagine how difficult it can be to have a fresh smelling home.

I love it when guests enter my home and say they can’t tell that I even have one cat, let alone 13. Unfortunately, no one had said that in a while so I knew it was time for a litter change which is why I am thrilled to have had the opportunity to test out Arm & Hammer’s Clump & Seal.

100_9600

PetSmart has the entire line of Arm & Hammer’s Clump & Seal products which includes the following:

Lightweight: Same amount of litter at half the weight. Great for those that have to carry their litter up several flights of steps and for anyone that can’t lift a lot.

Naturals: Made of plant based materials, wood fibers, baking soda and minerals.

Clumping: With micro-sealing granules to destroy odors.

Micro-Guard: Their newest product which controls bacteria that causes odors.

100_9605-2  I went with the Clump & Seal for Multi-Cat households. 100_9606-2

100_9620-2  Phoebe was the first to discover the new litter. I won’t show you the rest of this scene, but she did approve and so did everyone else.

100_9640-2Cats have much more important things to do than worry about a stinky box.

100_9666-2  Like playing

and sleeping. And when my cats are happy, I am happy. Plus, I am once again being told by guests that they can’t tell I have any cats because there is no smell.

We Are Winners of a Chicken Dinner

Hi everyone! Look what we won from our friends Truffle and Brulee of Sweet Perfections

DSCF2290

We won a giant package of Inaba Ciao treats! There are grilled fillets of chicken and tuna in a broth. They are vacuum packed and very moist and tender.

DSCF2300

There were also Churu purees in little packages. Mom has been letting Snowball have them because she loves puree. Being the good sister that I am, I decided to test it for her -until Mom took it away- phooey!

DSCF2301

We are going to donate some of the fillets to help trap the remaining ferals that Mom is helping with. Thank you Truffle and Brulee!

It’s Caturday!

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop today and Rascal and Rocco’s Pet Parade. And I want to thank everyone that participated in the Friendly Fill-Ins, I enjoyed everyone’s answers.

First, I want to thank Brian and family of Brian’s Home. About 6 weeks ago I won some litter on their blog, we won a coupon for any Tidy Cats litter up to $12.99.

DSCF1215 I chose the Lightweight and I used some in one box to test it. It does work very well. I also wanted my Mom to take the rest of the container for her cat. I think this lighter litter is especially good for her because of her arthritic hands. It is only 8.5 pounds compared to the usual 20 pound container.

Phoebe used ribbet today to design her art- she cropped a photo and added words to show her frustration of her slow-growing cat grass. phoebe grass

Caturday ArtPet Parade blog hop linky party is for all pets and animal lovers.

We were very sad to read that Toby’s cousin, Frankie lost his battle with cancer. Rest in peace, sweet boy:

PetSafe Ultra ScoopFree Self-Cleaning Litter Box

Hi everyone! We have another review for you today. As most of you know, I am not a fan of covered litter boxes because they remind me of porta potties. I decided to accept PetSafe’s generous offer of the Ultra ScoopFree Self Cleaning Litter Box because it cleans after each use.

*Disclaimer notice: We were given this product in exchange for a fair review. All opinions are our own.

DSCF0768 It is a BIG box, the litter tray is 22″ by 14.5″ by 2.5″

http://15andmeowing.comDSCF0770Sammy was eager to test it, but I told him he had to wait for the litter to be added.

DSCF0769The entire bottom box is disposable cardboard with a cover on one end where all the waste gets pushed into. There is a metal rake that you set to run after the cat gets out of the box, it can be set for 5, 10 or 20 minutes.

It also has a great feature that keeps track of how often the box gets used. Polar Bear and his 2 wives really need a self-cleaning box because I don’t scoop their box every time they use it like I do for the cats in the main part of the house.

Before that I let Millie and Penny try it. They used it once and got very scared of how it came to life after 20 minutes and scooped. DSCF0771

scoopfree Polar Bear, Noel and Tallulah used it 6 times for a total of 7 counting Millie ( sorry for the blurry photo). After 7 times, the litter looked fresh:

DSCF0794

I am very impressed with this litter box, it is quiet and clean. It is expensive, but well worth it for those that really hate to scoop. It is good for up to a month for one cat, 10-15 days for 2 cats and 7-10 days for 3 or more cats. I priced the replacement box/litter and that is about $15 which is also pricey.

I also like that it keeps track of how often it is used, very useful for detecting UTIs. This is one covered litter box that I highly recommend.

Phoebe is getting her dental day, I am sure she will tell you all about it tomorrow. And Brody is getting his stitches out.

Feral Friday

Hi everyone! Last week I was offered a free sample of Pet Remedy a natural de-stress and calming spray. I had a choice of a plug-in or a spray , but I worry about plug-ins starting on fire so I went with the spry. We got this for free, but all opinions are our own.

The spray arrived on Monday which was perfect timing. Right after it arrived, I got the call from the people trapping the ferals for me. They had another one and he was not happy. He kept throwing himself against the back of the cage trying to get out. I sprayed this in the backseat of my car ( that is where I had the trap) and he stopped doing that.

The next day, when I brought him to the clinic, I sprayed the car again as well as the towel and he was fine the entire way. Added bonus, the smell of the spray covered his unneutered male odor. Now that he is quarantined, I spray it in his area twice a day to help him feel better.

It is made with valerian root which is known to be a calming agent. If you want to learn more about this or order your own here is the link .

Here is a link to an article about how helpful it is for all types of stress. Click here

I have a question. I know my niece got a rabies vaccine when she started working at a vat clinic many years ago. Today I called my Dr. and asked if I could get one that way when I am dealing with ferals, I won’t have to worry. I was told they cost $5,000 and you need to get that at the ER- most insurance companies don’t cover it. Does anyone have a rabies vaccine?

Taste of the Wild Tuesday

Hi everyone! Today we want to tell you about the food we won as part of Stunning Keisha’s #10CK Giveaway for her 10th Gotcha Day. We thought we had won a bag of treats so we were very surprised to receive a Chewy box with a 15 pound bag of Taste of the Wild Rocky Mountain Dry Cat Food. 002 Penny claimed the box, as you can see the bag is bigger than she is.

005 006 007 Everyone loved it- even KaTwo! That was 13 out of 13 cats that liked the taste. Then a few hours later the wild part kicked in. Prancie was walking around meowing and her pupils were dilated, Joanie was practically bouncing off the walls and Phoebe was very aggressive to Joanie  ( much more than when she plays with Prancie).

I decided to look up the ingredients ( I know I should have done that first). The one item that jumped out at me was chicory root. I know it is used as a coffee substitute and is caffeine free, but I am guessing it must be a stimulant. The only other information I could find about chicory root was it has a laxative effect. I am hoping it was what made Phoebe’s heart have the murmur-if it is not heard today then I will believe that was the cause. Has anyone else ever tried this and if so, how did your cat act?

I am not trying to sound ungrateful because this was a great prize, but I just can’t believe all the odd behavior my cats had from it. Chewy is a great company, but I won’t be purchasing this particular product again. And we love CK- thank you for having the giveaway!

Today is also World Spay Day and I am bringing in another feral to get fixed.

006

This poor guy is very afraid. And he smells a lot, I am sure his odor will go away once he is fixed. I am not looking forward to the car ride though.
