3 Things to Stop Repeating About Cats in the New Year

As the year draws to a close many of us might take time for reflection. It is befitting to think about changes we would like to see for the better when the clock strikes midnight and the clean slate of a new year begins. Out with the old, and in with the new.

These past few months I heard way too many times, sound bites repeated about cats that are stereotypical, unfounded, and cruel.  These same mundane statements are being echoed throughout almost every media outlet and social media venue.  This  repetition does more harm than good and it is frustrating to keep hearing these same old droll statements plunked down because it is easier to repeat than evaluate.

I might sound like I have lost my sense of humor, and I haven’t I assure you, except when it comes to people mindlessly repeating the following things about cats.

1) Stop repeating that cats are aloof and don’t love their humans.

Vocal recognition of owners by domestic cats (Felis catus),  by Saito and Shinozuka and published in Animal Cognition early in 2013 caused an echo throughout the media claiming that cats don’t care enough to respond to their owners, cats are aloof, and even your cat doesn’t love you back.  So as bits and pieces of the article were plucked out and repeated, in one sensational headline after another, the core of the article was left behind.

Ideal Balance Crunchy Naturals Cat Treats

Ideal Balance Crunchy Naturals

Gracey had food allergies and that made it difficult to find special treats for her to enjoy.  We were in that mind set for so long, now that Annie and Eddie are Ideal Balance Crunchy Naturalshere we realized that we could look for a teat for them to enjoy.  We are still skittish about what to feed our cats because we want to make sure that they not only enjoy their treats but that the treats are good and safe for them too.

Ideal Balance created Crunchy Naturals for dogs and cats to meet the needs of pet parents that want the best in what they choose to give to their loved one.  I like the window on the bag that allows me to see the treats inside the bag too.   The treats stay fresh even after opening because the treat bag has a zip loc closure that seals tight. In fact, the treat bag stayed closed even after Annie batted it off the counter onto the floor thinking she would be able to get a few extra treats.

All Natural Ingredients and Grain Free

Ideal Balance treats are made with all-natural ingredients like real chicken and they are grain-free too. There is no corn, wheat, soy, added artificial preservatives, colors or flavors.  All of the Hill’s Ideal Balance treats are manufactured locally, in the United States.

Cat Litter Too Heavy? Enter the Tidy Cats LightWeight Giveaway

Cat Litter Weighing Heavy On Your Mind?

Let’s face it, when we go to the store, lugging heavy cat litter home isn’t one of the high points.  To get the best value, often times the container is so heavy that we need assistance getting the container into our homes, or maybe even into our carts at the store.  I know we have even passed up the better value in bird seed to get the bags that I can manage without a struggle.

So when Tidy Cats introduced the new LightWeight litter, I was intrigued.    The new LightWeight checks in at only 8.5 lbs versus the 17 lbs containers, yes under 10 lbs.  But the litter still holds tight clumps and is scoopable.  So all the strength but half the weight.

Is All Natural Cat Food Enough? A Cat’s Diet Must Be Balanced

Pet Parents Demand All Natural Quality Ingredients for their Cats

Ideal Balance canned cat food

Pets are part of the family, in fact so much so that we are seeing the term pet parent more often than pet owner. This increasing humanization of pets has paved the way for pet parents to demand their pets’ food be made of the same type and quality of ingredients that might be in a food product for humans. . This means that cat parents are asking for protein sources in their cat’s food that would match the quality of meat, poultry or fish in their own food.  And just as all natural foods are demanded for themselves, all natural food is in demand for cats too.
