Most people want a few options when they are picking a
stuffed animal or any toy items really. With that in mind, it is important to
explore your options. One of the more popular toys this year has been the My
Pillow Pets Collection, and items like the My Pillow Pets Cat really stick out
to many people. This item has a few choices to it, and has really made a lot of
people very happy. If you are looking for that perfect gift for a young child
in your life, this might be something you want to look at.
There are two great options when you are picking from My
Pillow Pets Sassy Cat. The first option is called the My Pillow Pets Cat
18″ stuffed pet. This would be the more popular of the two choices, and is
also the bigger option. Kids obviously love big stuffed animals that they can
tackle and cuddle with, making this a very popular choice, especially for the
older children. The other option is the My Pillow Cat 11″ stuffed pet.
This stuffed animal is almost identical to the larger version; the only major difference
is the smaller size. Younger kids sometimes prefer this because it is easier to
carry around and something that they can easily take with them on trips. Both
versions are very popular, and both versions are going to make most kids very
happy. The larger one is going to be more expensive than the smaller version,
which can be a determining factor.
Both versions of this item are going to have a great looking
black body that is made with a soft plush material. They are both going to have
white paws and a white face, with a little pink nose and a smiling face. They
are also both made from the same soft plush material. The only real differences
between your two options are going to be the cost and the size, two things that
are important to consider when making your decision.
For some people, these choices are not enough, but that is

There are literally thousands to choose from these days.
This article highlights just some of the innovative products aimed at improving
your kitten or cat’s welfare and health.
Cat Collars – new snap opens designs
Cat care organisations have advised for a while that
traditional collars maybe dangerous. Elastic straps can stretch and move to
under the cat’s ‘armpit’ or around the jaw, causing injury. New safety release
designs have plastic ‘snap open’ fastenings that release the collar, leaving
the cat free from injury if the collar becomes caught on anything.
Although popular to alert birds to predatory cat’s
movements, traditional bells are actually not such a good idea either.
Similarly, dangling tags on collars can become caught on objects, or the cat
can get its claws stuck in them. Collars can be made now with your contact
details printed into the collar.
Anti stress innovations
Cats can suffer from stress in some situations – in a
multi-cat household, when travelling in a carrier box, when moving into a new
home or even if you’re moving furniture around redecorating (basic motto:
familiar is good, unfamiliar not so good). Two products aim to make the surroundings
more familiar-feeling and reduce stress:
Synthetic Feline Pheromone diffusers: these look more like a
‘plug in’ style air freshener. The diffused liquid should be odourless
& undetectable to all except your kitten or cat. Its designed to mimic
naturally occurring facial pheromones, the chemical ‘scents’ cats use to denote
their territory with.
Synthetic Feline Pheromone sprays: Can be used to spray
furniture aiming to deter urine marking, scratching; to make travelling more
comfortable and to spray the floor of a cattery or cat-sitting friend’s house
while you are on holidays.
Kitten and Cat Toys
string toys -a ‘wand’ for you to hold, a length of soft elastic and something
for the cat to chase.
toys – around 70% of cats react to the aromatic oil nepetalactone contained in
catnip, making them blissfully intoxicated for a few minutes. Be aware though,
some exhibit aggressive behaviour ‘under the influence’. Avoid catnip … Read the rest
