Eureka AirSpeed One Bagless Upright Vacuum

If you are a bargain shopper like me, you are probably always on the lookout for the cheapest household products.  My husband and I have multiple cats and we need to vacuum often.  However, when we purchased our vacuum, funds were low and we decided to purchase the Eureka AirSpeed One bagless upright vacuum for $35 at Walmart.  Well, here I am 9 months, 5 calls to customer service and 2 replacement parts later… and I am fed up with the stupid thing!  The parts inside the canister will not stay in place.  They become loose and block the airflow, which makes the vacuum totally ineffective.  I highly recommend spending a little more money for a product that you won’t have to replace in under a year.

Premium Cat Scratcher Offered by GoPets

Premium Cat Scratcher by GoPets, Wedge Shaped Corrugated Cardboard is Reversible Lasts 2x Longer Includes 1 Pack Catnip, Natural Incline More Ergonomic Than Scratching Post, Cutouts to Hide Toys
Offered by GoPets

My cats LOVE this scratcher! As soon as I took it out of the box they all wanted to explore. When I added the catnip, they lost their minds! My cats range in age from 6 months to 10 years old and they all have a great time with it. It is made with thick cardboard so I think that it will last for quite a while. The catnip that it comes with seems to be very potent because my cats had an immediate reaction. The holes in the side of the scratcher are great because my cats like to play with each other through them or hide behind the scratcher and peek out through the holes. This is a high quality scratcher and it makes a great treat for playful cats! I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for an honest review.

Nature’s Miracle Advanced Hooded Cat Litter Box

Nature’s Miracle Advanced Hooded Cat Litter Box

20160121_142635My husband got one of these for my cats over the holidays and it is great. I have two males. As every male cat owner knows, sometimes they “spray” urine and it does not always end up in the litter box. With this litter box, I have not had to clean up a single mess. The lip of the box makes it easy to step into and the lid adds extra height and protection so any sprayed urine will be kept inside of the box. The two pieces are easy to snap together and take apart for cleaning. I would recommend this to anyone with a male cat.

Update: I have just ordered a THIRD box for my home. These are perfect for my cats. It even makes my home smell better. I would highly recommend this box.

Lion Mane Dog/Cat Costume Offered by Pet Krewe

Lion Mane Dog Cat Costume and Complimentary Feathered Catnip Toy – Dog and Cat Costumes by Pet Krewe
Offered by Pet Krewe

lionMy cats are not fans of dressing up, but I think they look adorable in costumes and I had been wanting to try a cute little lion’s mane on them for quite some time. Though they protested a bit, they were good sports about it and I’d like to share our experience with this lion’s mane wig costume.

I have multiple cats ranging in age from 6 months to 10+ years old. One of them is fluffy and the others have medium/short hair. The wig has a velcro closure at the bottom which makes it easy to adjust the size to fit your kitty. I got it to fit well on both my larger, fluffy cat and my small, medium-haired kitten. There is a toy included to distract them so you can get the costume on more easily. It also serves as a reward for your kitty after they allow you to put this wig on them.

I must say, the ears on this wig do not stick up like they do in the photo in the description. They are more floppy and they don’t really resemble a lion’s ears. The material feels like it is kind of cheaply made and if your cat really wants to destroy it, they will. That being said, it will likely last long enough for you to try it on your cat and take a few photos, so it serves its purpose. I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for an honest review.

GREAT GLOVE Nitrile Industrial Grade Foodservice Glove (Pack of 100)

These gloves are fantastic! I wear them to clean my cats’ litter boxes daily. They fit well and they are strong and do not tear while I am using them, which is essential. They make me feel like I am well protected from any gross things that I may come into contact with while cleaning the litter boxes. My husband also uses them and he love them. Obviously they could be used for many other things since they are latex-free, powder-free and food safe, but that is what we currently use them for and they work perfectly for us!

Cat Toys Variety Pack (Includes One Plush Interactive Feather Wand, Three Wicker Bell Balls and One Mouse Rattle Chew) Offered by JIZUWelldone

Cat Toys Variety Pack (Includes One Plush Interactive Feather Wand, Three Wicker Bell Balls and One Mouse Rattle Chew)
Offered by JIZUWelldone

cat toyyyMy cat is so crazy about his new toys that I couldn’t even get a clear photo of him! This variety pack includes a toy mouse on a string, three wicker balls with bells in them and a mouse toy. My cat’s favorite toy is the mouse on a string. He’s is rough with them and he has gone through several of them in the past few years but this one seems durable so that is good. The mouse toy has a “stringy” tail so be careful if your cats eat things like that… I had to cut it off because I kept catching mine with strings hanging out of his mouth. I’m very happy with these toys! I got these for free to try and I will definitely be ordering from The Natural Pet Company in the future.

Cat Litter Mat – Premium Quality – Extra Large – Best Kitty Litter Catcher with 9-TM Scatter Control – Urine Proof Litter Mat- Soft Touch for Cats Paws (Patent Pending) Offered by Smiling Paws Pets

Cat Litter Mat – Premium Quality – Extra Large – Best Kitty Litter Catcher with 9-TM Scatter Control – Urine Proof Litter Mat- Soft Touch for Cats Paws (Patent Pending)
Offered by Smiling Paws Pets

cat matMy three cats track A LOT of litter through my home, so I really needed a product that would help reduce the amount of litter that ended up on my carpet. As soon as I set up my cat litter mat, my cats came to inspect it. As you can see from the photos, they were a bit hesitant at first but they seem to be okay with it now. I have two litter boxes set up next to each other and it is long enough to fit under them both. I only put the mats under the first few inches of the boxes in case one of the cats accidentally sprays urine outside of the box (it’s easier to wipe of of the floor), but it seems like the material would be easy to hose off if anything did get on it. After my cats use their litter, I can usually hear a lot of excess litter coming off of their paws as they walk across the floor. This definitely reduced the amount that they have tracked through the house! This cat litter mat is perfect for my household’s needs. I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for an honest review and my cats and I are very satisfied!

Cat Toys Ball with Small Bell,Made of Plastic Material,Blue Color(Diameter 4 Inch) By Petutu®

Cat Toys Ball with Small Bell,Made of Plastic Material,Blue Color(Diameter 4 Inch) By Petutu®

cat toys1My cats love balls with bells in them so I knew they’d have fun with this toy! The toy has shapes cut out of the ball with a smaller ball inside, which drives my cats nuts because they are constantly trying to get the inside ball. They can play with this thing for hours (usually at night, when I don’t feel like hearing that bell but oh well)! My only issue with the ball is that it’s a little too large to throw for them and when I roll it to them, they get scared because of its size. However, when they walk up to the ball and start playing with it on their own, the size does not seem to be an issue. It’s just not really a toy that I can use to interact with them, and that is okay. The toy seems to be pretty durable so I imagine that it will last for quite a while. I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for an honest review.

Pet Prime Dog & Cat Grooming Glove Brush – Deshedding & Massaging Tool For Long & Short Hair Pets by Pet Prime

Pet Prime Dog & Cat Grooming Glove Brush – Deshedding & Massaging Tool For Long & Short Hair Pets by Pet Prime

I love this cat grooming brush! My parents had something similar when I was growing up and it really helped with their long-haired cats so I was eager to try one myself. I have four adult cats and sometimes the shedding gets out of hand. They do not like traditional brushes so it’s difficult to groom them, especially since they still have their claws and they see the brush as their enemy!

To use this glove/brush, I just put it over my hand and secure it with the velcro around my wrist. I normally start out petting my cats with my ungloved hand just so they do not see an unknown object coming toward them and get scared. After a few strokes, I switch hands and they don’t even notice. I think they actually like the sensation.

The glove removes a TON of hair, and does so gently. I feel good about the way that this glove helps me remove my cat’s excess hair and saves them from extra hairballs from grooming themselves when they have that much shedding. I highly recommend this grooming glove to anyone with cats because it is truly awesome! I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for an honest review.

Offered by JFL Online Stores

My cats LOVE their new toys from Feline Be Mine! As you can see from the photos that I posted with this review, my cat couldn’t even wait for me to snap a photo before she started playing with her toys! There are are 7 pieces in this set of toys, including a stick with a toy attached, an extra toy for the stick, and 5 other toys with feathers attached. My cats are obsessed with toys that have feathers on them so they can’t get enough of these. The toys make a little bit of a rattling sound which I think they also really enjoy. I would highly recommend this set to anyone with cats in their home. I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for an honest review.
