Cats got Fleas? Shoo!TAG is the Solution!

Congratulations to Judy Simon and Glenda Bixler! You are the winners of the Shoo!TAG!  You are now Triple T Reporters! We can’t wait to hear about your experience with the Shoo!TAG.

When I learned about the Shoo!TAG at the Global Pet Expo I had to run and scratch on a sisal pole!   My whiskers were twitching with excitement because the tag is a chemical-free way to protect cats, dogs, horses and even people from fleas, ticks and other pesky pests!  That’s right!  No toxic chemicals!  Cats got Fleas? Shoo!TAG is the solution.

Here is the Science:

Allergic to your Cat? Pet CFL to the Rescue!

Congratulations to Janet Vandenabeele the winner of the Pet CFL

“Change a lightbulb Change a life”

Are  you  or  a member of your family allergic to your cat? Do you have other allergies, asthma, or pet dander issues? Well, Purely Products new Pet CFL Air Purifier in a Lightbulb Controls Pet Dander and Odor!  We were super excited to learn about this new Pet CFL at the Global Pet Expo.  It was one of our favorite products at the show.

Spring is here and after a long and cold winter, we are all super happy to see daffodils popping up through the ground, but for many people along with spring flowers come spring allergies! Some of our friends not only suffer from spring allergies, but have allergies all year long, asthma and are allergic to pet dander. Did you know that about 15% of the population is allergic to dogs or cats? And approximately 1/3 of the people who are allergic to cats live with at least one anyway!

My Dad is a Healthy Snackasaurus

Upon our return from the Global Pet Expo,  my mom came down with a cold and we are not sure but maybe a touch of the flu.  So she and I have been huddled together reading about Korean Pine Forests and the Amur Tiger. This is super interesting stuff, so we sometimes read for a few hours at a time and then we might even take a nap to think about what we have just learned.

Today my dad said that he would go out hunting for a few groceries so that my mom could stay home resting and reading with me.  He asked  her if she wanted anything special and she said maybe some oranges and he said he was going to get my grandma a dozen eggs and maybe some sort of “healthy” snack for himself.

Tigers Need You!

The wild tiger’s shrinking numbers are due to habitat loss caused by human encroachment, poaching fueled by greed, and starvation from lack of prey.  Wild tigers need plenty of room to roam and the tiger’s contiguous territory is shrinking.  Human populations and economic expansion has led to the razing of tiger habitats for plantations, mines and other agriculture. Over development by humans has left the tiger population in fragmented groups, leading to smaller genetic units with limited availability of prey animals.  The tigers caught in these tiny territories are the most vulnerable to the most pressing threat; poaching.

To make matters worse, the increasing captive tiger population camouflages the severity of the wild tiger crisis. So many captive tigers estimated at over 5000 in the United States alone, may make it hard for the average person to fathom that tigers are at risk in the wild.

Tiger Eyes Through the Leaves

Tigers looking through leavesFriends, I have had some time to prepare for my latest tiger imitation.  This particular imitation took longer than usual due to the inaccessibility of the plants in my habitat.  All of the snow and rain of late, made me long for sunny days when the grass is green and the trees have leaves. One thing led to another and I now proudly present to you my Tiger Eyes through the Leaves imitation.
