With the holiday season right around the corner shoppers everywhere have begun planning gifts for friends and family. During this holiday season, do not forget the furriest members of the family, your beloved cats and dogs!
Catnip is not a new product by any means; cat lovers everywhere know the magic that happens when kitty meets ‘nip. Unfortunately, catnip produced for mass consumption often is not the best quality. For cats that deserve the best, Catnip Farm in Victor, Iowa is the place to find high quality, organic ‘nip.
For over 17 years, Catnip Farm has cultivated their organic catnip. They offer both fresh and dried catnip through their online store at LocalHarvest.org. Catnip Farm also sells catnip seeds and organic potting mix so the cat guardian with a green thumb may grow and process his or her own product.
Chuckit Ball Launcher
For families with a very active dog, keeping Fido happy and healthy is an exhausting task. the Chuckit Ball Launcher is an innovative tool for exercising a fetch-obsessed canine while avoiding repetitive motion injuries. The Chuckit Ball Launcher is also a great way to involve even the youngest family members in caring for the family dog.
DIY Cat Tree
Retail cat trees can cost $75 to $100 and often do not match your home’s decor. For the do-it-yourself cat guardian it is satisfying to ditch the pet store and build a custom tree on your own.
CatTreePlans.com is the place to go for handy cat people. For $9.95 CatTreePlans.com offers 10 downloadable build plans plus two bonus plans. The plans include material and cut lists, pictures of the process, and step-by-step instructions.
Cooling and Warming Dog Harness
Walking the family dog should be a priority all through the year, but often heat or cold sensitive dogs cannot handle adverse weather conditions. For weather-sensitive dogs, the Kumfy Tailz Cooling and Warming dog harness is a must have.
The harness comes equipped with an insertable gel pack that may be cooled in the freezer or heated in the microwave. With this harness, adverse weather will no longer be an excuse to skip your daily dog walk.
For the busy cat guardian it is often difficult to make time for exercising Fluffy. When cats do not get enough exercise, they develop weight problems and/or behavioral issues.
Cat’s meow is a perfect way to keep your cat active and healthy even if you do not have a lot of time to spend playing with kitty. The self-propelled toy spins a “mouse” under a circular nylon cover – mimicking the action of a mouse moving under the carpet. The “mouse” changes speed and direction keeping any cat interested for hours.
As you enjoy good food, family, and friends this holiday season don’t forget those who spend time with you all year around – your dogs and cats!
