Tastes so good!
The purrfect stocking stuffer are treats! Shhh, don’t tell anyone but Gris Gris has secret vice: fishy flakes from Cat Man Do
Merlin loves the soft texture of Calming Treats from Pet Naturals. They taste good and really help calm cats.
One of the biggest hits in our home this year was the stainless steel 360 drinking fountain from Drinkwell.
Feel So Good
The holiday season can be a stressful time for people and their pets. The go-to remedy for us is Rescue Remedy.There is an alcohol-free formula for pets and kids. Adults have calming choices from chewing gum, pastilles, sprays and Sleep-Melts to melt away stress naturally.
For travel, moves, noisy parties and new pets, nothing beats Comfort-Zone Feliway plugins and spray to prevent behavioral issues. The natural calming pheromone is a holiday season must have. Our friends at Entirely Pets have the lowest prices.
The holiday season can be stinky mess. Stress can create litter box issues, house guests may be allergic to cats, hotel rooms may smell funky, and your car after a big holiday party? Ew!
Our #1 top pet product for the holiday season is a CritterZone the air naturalizer which naturally eliminates ALL unwanted odors anywhere. CritterZone has a new Holiday Travel Pack and offering Cat Wisdom101 readers $10.00 off with the discount code: CatWisdom101 at CritterZone check-out
Play SO Good!
Despite trying oodles of toys we rely on few favorites like Neko Flies and a one new one we’re excited about from Pioneer Pets. The Kitty-go-Round may look familiar but this one is motorized to keep cats playing. We’re currently testing their new multi-level hanging scratcher is brilliant for apartments or homes where you don’t want to drill holes in the wall.
For the best interactive fun and slow feeders, we love everything from Aikiou
