The holidays are quickly approaching so we wanted to highlight some Catastic Products for you and your furkids, as well as some items we have in the CCC Creations store for you to purchase for yourself or your friends. Friendly reminder we will be doing a Black Friday sale in the store! In fact, our Black Friday sale will start on the morning of November 24th and run through the end of the day on....Cyber Monday! That's right! You'll have Friday through Monday to peruse the shop and find all of the perfect gifts for yourself and your family!
Catastic Products for Cats We are going to feature some of our favorite products that we have on the site that would make great gifts for your furbabies! Let's start off with something everyone needs!
Food bowls, water bowls, and water fountains should always be ceramic, glass, or steel as these materials will not scratch. Scratches in materials like plastic allow a breeding ground for bacteria. Plastic is also a common allergen for cats, causing acne on the chin area. From there, cats naturally prefer moving water so a fountain is a preferred choice over a bowl of stagnant water.
I can say from personal experience that my cat loves this product. It is easy to clean and doesn't take up a lot of room.
If this fountain isn't really your cup of tea, feel free to hop over to the website and check out the other options we have there!
Now that we've discussed the water situation, let's move on to an interesting feeding option:
Full disclosure that this feeder is a pricey item and will not be for everyone. However, if you have a multi-cat home with different dietary needs, this is a wonderful option to make sure everyone eats their own food only.
I felt it was important to add this one mostly to raise awareness that there are options like this out there for more high maintenance situations.
One of our supporters and fellow cat lover, Alex Sklut, has this to say about the Microchip Feeder:
"The SureFeed Microchip Pet Feeder has made my life a lot easier. I have two cats who are both aggressive when it comes to food. They both eat wet food, and one of them has to eat prescription food. Needless to say, feeding time was getting really complicated. One cat eats fast, one eats slow, so I was feeding them in different rooms to prevent conflict and make sure everyone was eating only what they were supposed to. I got two of these bad boys and life is easier now! These feeders were the only things on the market that allowed me to feed them in the same room without tons of stress. I call them my space feeders because they look so futuristic! They work the way they are supposed to and my cats figured them out really quickly. The only cons to these are 1) the price (YIKES!) and 2) they are a little small if you have large cats like I do! I can only get 12 hours’ worth of food into the bowls, but if the cats were smaller you might be able to get away with 24 hours!"
The Go-Cat company knows what will get a cat excited. It is a rarity to find a cat who won't have interest in Da Bird. I have many a video of cats flying through the air trying to catch the feather.
This toy is definitely a favorite in my house -- to the point that I have had to order refills! This is hours of endless entertainment and great exercise for your kitties!
The classic mouse toy, Zanies mice are cheap, realistic, and always fun.
My cats LOVE these! I find them everywhere and it is so fun to watch them chase them all around the house. For more items like this, check out our page: Catastic Products for Cats.
Catastic Products for Humans Not only do we love to get our babies presents and stocking stuffers, but it is also fun to get our cat-loving friends gifts they will appreciate as well. We chose some of our favorites to share with you.
Jackson Galaxy, THE Cat Daddy, has more than one book and they are all worth a read. Catification is the one I personally own and it provides a wealth of information about enriching your home environment for kitty. "Cat owners know the struggles of creating living spaces that are both functional and stylish for owner and cat. Don’t just go to your local pet shop and adorn your home with unattractive cat towers and kitty beds. In Catification, Jackson Galaxy, the star of Animal Planet’s My Cat from Hell, and Kate Benjamin, of the popular cat design website Hauspanther.com, walk readers through a step-by-step process of designing an attractive home that is also an optimal environment for cats."
