What Is The Best Cat Litter? Here’s The Scoop!

With so many different kinds of cat litter on the market, and each claiming to be the best, it can be difficult to know what’s what and who to trust. That’s why we thought that this simple, (hopefully) educational breakdown of the different cat litters out there might be of some use to you. Hope we were right!

How To Find A Litter That Deodorizes

Deodorizing cat litter can be a very convenient and reasonably priced solution to your otherwise unpleasantly scented litter box room. Most of your basic deodorized litters are going to be labeled in such a way that it’ll be apparent to you when you’re at the pet store. Nowadays most all of your major litter brands are going to have a deodorizing option, and, again, it will be labeled as such, but you don’t necessarily have to quit using your basic bulk litter, if that’s what’s been working for you and your kitty, and what’s also been fitting into the budget (wink, wink). Arm & Hammer makes a product that is added to whatever cat litter you already use and serves as a sort of aftermarket litter deodorizer (and quite effectively, from what we’ve read). So, whether you’re looking for a new, deodorized litter or you just want to add a little something extra to the stuff you’ve already got, there are more than enough options for you to choose.

How To Find A Litter That Your Cat Also Enjoys

But how do you find a litter that your cat also enjoys? A very good question, because a cat unhappy with its litter box is a going to directly result in an owner who’s unhappy with his cat. Keeping your cat happy with the litter you keep in its box isn’t as difficult as it may seem at first thought, however. The Humane Society offers some really great tips on how to ensure that your cat is happy. Namely, it’s suggested that using finer litter is often more agreeable, and that previously outdoor cats may enjoy some rocks or other topographical distortions along the surface of their litter. Most importantly, though, (and this may involve some trial and error, which is perfectly all right) once you’ve found a litter that your cat enjoys, don’t go changing it again and again. What would the purpose of that be, anyway? Cats enjoy routine, and even people can relate when it comes to their lavatory routine. Think about your favorite TP.

So, What Is The Best Cat Litter?

Again, the question, “What is the best cat litter?” is so subjective that it would be like another person telling you what the best toilet paper is, or what the best breakfast cereal is, you know? Each cat is going to have a slightly different preference, and, for better or worse (largely depending on how particular your kitty is) the duty of finding the right litter for your cat falls on you. Our Litter Robot Brand premium clumping litter has been well received and also is quite a bargain, and is shipped with two, 10 lb. bags which are easy to manage and you won’t have to be running out to the store every week. The choice is yours, or, more specifically, the choice is your cat’s, but the responsibility is yours. Fortunately, you’ve got Automated Pet Care here for support. Until next time, keep the litter fresh!

Automatic Self-Cleaning Litter Box: The Future of Litter Box Technology

Are you sick and tired of repeated back-breaking crouches that bring you in close proximity to your cat’s waste? Thanks to the Litter-Robot™, those days are over! But, before you make any rash, impulsive decisions, why don’t we give it a little thought first…

Why A Self-Cleaning Litter Box?

Think about the numbers. The sheer, staggering resources that are consumed annually by your current conventional litter box. The tons of kitty litter, the thousands of plastic grocery bags, even the several dozen ratty bath towels that serve as your litter box’s foundation. Now, imagine for a moment a world where you can spare yourself (and the precious, delicate environment) this ludicrously excessive and wasteful consumption. The Litter-Robot™ is a revolutionary device that seeks to bring forth an industry-wide transformation using half as much litter as required in a conventional litter box. Oh, and did we mention that this device will save you tons of dough too?

Now let’s discuss convenience and consistency. When your self-cleaning automatic litter box cleans itself after each use, you don’t have to – that’s convenience! And, when the box is consistently clean, your cat will also consistently use the automatic self-cleaning litter box. No more messes in protest due to a dirty litter box!

And what about this ‘yuck’ factor? If your cat has to paw through a dirty litter box, its paws will carry germs right onto your counter-top, or wherever you allow your cat to go. A self-cleaning automatic litter box that cleans itself after each use will keep your cat’s paws – and your home, cleaner.

Contact with cat feces and urine is not a pleasant experience, and the less exposure, the better. By essentially eliminating the need to scoop and breath contaminated litter dust, your exposure to cat waste is drastically reduced. In fact, with one cat you only have to remove, tie off, and dispose of a waste bag once per week. It’s that simple and easy.

This is a complete 180° from the archaic and frankly grotesque practice of poop scooping and completely wasteful end-of-week box dumping.

How To Pick A Self-Cleaning Litter Box?

It’s very important to stop and weigh your options. However, if you put every other alleged self-cleaning litter box contraption on the market onto one side of a scale, and then you put a Litter-Robot™ on the other side, you’ll be sure to find that the competition doesn’t hold a candle to the dominance and immaculate engineering of the one true product. You deserve the best, and so does your furry feline friend, so don’t be thrifty about the things that really matter to you and yours. Think longer term and make that investment because it’s sure to pay off every single day. You’ll see that this will be a most valuable purchase that pays for itself over time. You’ve got to pay for the quality that you want to experience, and there’s only one thing that’s worse than crummy conventional litter boxes, and that’s a cheap self-proclaimed self-cleaning litter box that has malfunctioned all over your floor. Trust us, you don’t want that to happen, and that’s why you want to go with the Litter-Robot™!

Your Life After A Self-Cleaning Litter Box!

You may relish the free time of others, or put yours to good use, but you may long for even more, and you’re certainly not alone! We all wish that we had more leisure time to do what we love, and, for the vast majority of us, that usually doesn’t have much to do with animal feces. So, drop that disgusting miniature shovel and forget that your cat even produces waste, because your life after a self-cleaning litter box, and particularly the Litter-Robot™, will be an angelic reverie when compared to the monotony of the daily Sisyphean litter box scooping session. Picture yourself sitting on a chase lounge drinking a piña colada out of a freshly cut coconut. Now, make the one purchase that will surely grant you the freedom to indulge in just this sort of relaxation and calm. Get your Litter-Robot™ today! It’s the right way to go!

Cat Training: Tried And True Tricks

Monday, 13 April, 2015 | Category: Tips, Video | Comments (0)

Whether it’s a matter of life or death, or you simply want to have a closer relationship with your cat, training is a great way to spend some productive quality time together. Here are some ways to create the strongest bond and the most trust between you and your cat.

Reward Your Cat’s Good Behavior With Treats

Positive reinforcement has long been the most tried and true method of getting your cat to behave like you want it to. Start simple and work your way toward more complex maneuvers or behaviors, and when your cat successfully accomplishes the task at hand, you pay up with a treat. Everybody loves treats, and that includes cats. In order to move forward from training to normal or regular behavior, simply give out fewer treats with each training session until your cat is exhibiting the behavior you want to see without the positive reinforcement of getting the treat.

Deter Your Cat’s Bad Behavior – Not The Preferred Method

The debate over the effectiveness of negative reinforcement has been waged long and hard, and the tug-o-war seems to continue without much avail. The most common form of this type of training, as it applies to your cat, is the much reviled spray bottle. While it may indeed prevent your cat from carrying on in its immediate course of action, you’re very likely not deterring it over the long haul. Rather, you’re more likely breeding anxiety and distrust in your cat, which will result in continued, even enhanced bad behavior, and certainly won’t solve any of your troubles. Think of it this way: how would you like to be sprayed in the face with a sharp and unexpected stream of water?

How To Maintain Proper Training Techniques

At the end of the day, you’re going to have to basically perform little mini behavioral experiments on your cat in order to find what really works best and what doesn’t work at all. Every cat is slightly different in its personality and cooperativeness, and you, as the owner, are going to have to do a little work to find out just where your cat falls on the spectrum of angel cat to demon cat. We kindly recommend the treat over the spray bottle, but there are always exceptions to the rule, and you’re going to know your own cat best. We’ll leave you with that and we hope it’s of some help to you. Until next time, cat enthusiasts!

The Best Cat Furniture

Sure, your cat loves you plenty, but sometimes it just wants to go play on stuff. You and your cat will love each other all the more if you get it some awesome play structures, especially if the alternative is your cat bouncing around and tearing up your furniture. Here is some of the best cat furniture on the market.

Cat Scratching Posts

Perhaps the most classic and iconic piece of cat furniture is the scratching post. Simple. Elegant. Useful. There’s nothing that this perfect piece lacks, and they’re simple and affordable, to boot! They come in every imaginable size, shape, color and even texture, so whatever your interior design scheme is now, there’s sure to be a scratching post that will suit it well and not stick out like a sore thumb. You can pick them up at your local pet store, and without breaking the bank, but, if you’re feeling crafty, you can definitely take on the project of making one yourself. All you need is some wood, nails, a hammer, some carpet or other sturdy textile and some carpentry know-how and you’ve got yourself (and, more importantly, your cat) a great, homemade scratching post. Keep your cat from scratching your couch to shreds and get a scratching post today!

Cat Tree Furniture

A slightly more involved DIY project, but still completely possible, the cat tree is a similarly popular, albeit quite a bit larger, piece of cat furniture that is sure to keep your cat occupied and off of your nice sofa for hours on end. It’s commonly known that cats love exploring the high places in your home (e.g., refrigerators, bookshelves, cabinets, mantles covered in expensively framed family pictures, etc.). Though it’s a bit more difficult to disguise a cat tree, your cat will love you forever if you go all out and purchase, or build, this legendary play structure. Come on! Do it!

Automated Pet Care Litter Box Hider

Another convenient kind of cat furniture, even more so for you than for your kitty, is a litter box concealer. Litter boxes are inherently not the most lovely, appealing items in your home, and if they happen to exist in shared space, like a bathroom or laundry room, you may not want to be constantly confronted by a box of pee and poop. There happen to be all types of different litter box hiders, which turn your unsightly litter box into something more, like a shoe stand or a small shelf. If you’ve already got a Litter Robot and are still adjusting to its size and general appearance, you may be interested in disguising it with a Litter Robot Cabinet, which immediately turns it into a more normal, less space-aged looking home furnishing. So, there are plenty of options. It all comes down to what you and your cat want in life. Decisions, decisions. We’ll talk to you soon!

Cat names vary about as much as anything, and even more so these days. With names ranging from conventional people names to the names of fictional characters and even to names that didn’t used to be considered names at all, but now are, at least for cats. Names can be given to cats for the way that they behave, or simply for something near and dear to the owner’s heart. The point is, the options are really pretty endless, especially because you don’t have to worry about the other cats making fun of your cat at school. So have fun with it!

Some Popular Cat Names

Here are some of the most popular names being issued to our feline friends today. Some are also people names, some are more specifically for cats, but they’re all as lovely and splendid as the next, and, really, as long as you’re happy, that’s all that matters. We’ve listed a few examples of the direction you can take with your cat’s name, but here’s a complete, and quite authoritative, list of the 100 most popular cat names on http://www.cuteness.com/popular-cat-names.

Some Silly Cat Names

While you can see that the popular names are split pretty evenly across the real people names and cutesy pet names, there’s still another whole category of potential cat names that we haven’t even touched on yet. Silly cat names are becoming increasingly popular, as they’re fun, clever, and often very good conversation starters. The choice is entirely yours, and we would never try and make up your mind for you, so here’s a great list of, shall we say, alternative cat names on http://www.buzzfeed.com/melismashable/20-ridiculous-cat-names#.knB0N3nnLA.

How To Acclimate Your New Cat to Your Kids

Friday, 10 April, 2015 | Category: Tips | Comments (0)

Bringing home a new cat, wherever it might have come from, can be a difficult period of adjustment, both for your cat and your family. Small children are often less attuned to this acclimation process, and therefore are sometimes less patient with your new cat’s need for space, privacy and time to familiarize itself. Here are a few ways to acclimate your new cat to your kids.

Slowly Introduce Your Children To Your Cat

A new environment on its own is enough to cause a cat some distress, but when that environment is filled with strange new people, and even more so when those people are very active and very, very close to ground-level, it can be all the more anxious for your new cat. Besides simply allocating some private, cat-friendly space in which your new cat can seek refuge, you can also prepare your children for the kitty’s arrival. You don’t want to unleash a roomful of hyperactive children on an already unsettled cat, just as you wouldn’t want to unleash a roomful of hyperactive cats on a small child in an unfamiliar environment. So, help your kids understand that the cat will need some time, privacy and space in order to feel truly at home in its new house. Keep them from grabbing at the cat and tell them that it’s best to let the cat come to them, rather than vice versa, for the first few days to one week following the cat’s arrival.

Make Sure That Your Cat Has a Space All its Own

Nothing can make the time pass by any faster, but the space and privacy that the cat will long for upon being brought into an unfamiliar environment can be facilitated with proactive and creative thinking. Your new cat has a lot of new terrain to explore and get used to, and this can be overwhelming and distressing if it’s introduced all at once. The best way to ease your cat into its new environment is by establishing a special space designated for your cat. This can be a bathroom, small bedroom or even just a homemade pen that offers your cat some confinement as well as refuge.

Kitty Play Zone And Other Toys

While you can create a specifically cat-designated area from scratch, you could also consider something like the Kitty Play Zone from Automated Pet Care. It’s an ideal cat refuge that allows your cat to enjoy peace and privacy, houses its food and water bowls and also gives your children a canvas on which they can express their own creativity. It happens to serve one very specific purpose, as far as your new cat’s acclimation process is concerned, but also doubles as a fun, entertaining project for your little rascals. You can offer your new cat some toys, catnip or other comforting items in its Kitty Play Zone as an incentive to utilize this space, but, ultimately, you new cat will require some time, space and seclusion before it feels entirely comfortable in its new environment and with its new family. Farewell for now, feline folks!

Cat Toys: Which is Right for Your Cat?

Thursday, 9 April, 2015 | Category: Tips | Comments (0)

Though dogs tend to get all of the credit for loving their toys, in reality, cats are just as much fans of toys as their canine counterparts. It’s actually not just a matter of fun, although fun is a major part of it, but it’s about your cat’s health, as well. Regular play is a part of a healthy lifestyle for cats of all ages. Cats may, on average, be even more creative than dogs when it comes to making a plaything out of seemingly ordinary items. But we’re getting ahead of ourselves. Let’s cover some of the basics before we get into the DIY cat toys. We’ve also attached a link to one of our favorite sources, The Humane Society, on all things cat toy-related.

Does Your Cat Love Laser Pointers?

Especially after a long day at work, when you may not have the energy to be bouncing off the walls along with your cat, you may consider a toy that brings your cat as much joy and excitement as anything, and brings you some much needed rest and relaxation. Yes, we’re talking about the much cherished laser pointer! Your cat loves the thrill of chasing perceived prey, and, because they don’t get to do it as often as, say, a wild predatory cat, a green or red dot of light will suffice. So long as you avoid shining the laser directly in your kitty’s eyes, this should be a completely safe and fun way to allow your cat the opportunity for some good exercise and play.

Turn Household Items Into Cat Toys

As we mentioned, cats are incredibly creative when it comes to making toys out of otherwise ordinary household items, but you can get a little creative with them and make some DIY cat toys from things you may just have laying around. You can start with some ideas as basic as a Ping-Pong ball in a dry bathtub, which keeps your cat engaged for longer than the instant it takes to swipe the ball underneath the sofa in your family room. Anything cardboard is a sure winner, whether it’s a box, a paper bag, and especially if it’s the tubes from an expired roll of toilet paper or paper towel. These allow for amble scratching, biting, swatting and even sometimes fetching, if your cat’s in the mood. You can also get a little bit more involved and create some new toys from scratch, perhaps something like a doll with some alluring catnip sewn deep into its core. The most important thing to remember is that it’s all about fun; so don’t make it more work than it needs to be. It’s a toy, after all!

Steer Clear of The Ball of Yarn

Perhaps one of the single most prevalent misconceptions in the human/cat experience, and one that your cat might actually pay for, is that a ball of yarn is the ‘classic’ or ‘iconic’ cat toy. The Humane Society puts it atop their list of dangerous items that should be removed from your home in the ‘cat-proofing’ process. Following yarn, string or ribbon as cat-unfriendly items, they list paperclips, pins and needles, rubber bands and plastic bags, as any of these items could result in your precious kitty choking or suffocating. So, please remember that almost anything can be made into a toy for your cat, but use common sense so that you and your cat can play together for many, many years to come. Now, get out there and have some fun with your cat!

Cat Litter Box Solutions

You only need solutions when there’s a problem, and if you’ve got a problem with your cat using its litter box, then you’re going to need some good solutions and you’re going to need them fast. Here are some common tips on how to make both you and your kitty happy when it comes to where business is done.

Finding The Best Location For Your Cat Litter Box

You know where you’d like to keep the litter box: as far away from anywhere you’re likely to go in your house as possible, right? Though the basement or laundry room might seem like good locations to you, the best location for your cat’s litter box is actually where the cat wants it, and you may not realize just what your cat’s thinking when it comes to where it wants to relieve itself. Your intuition is right if you supposed that a “clean, quiet and low-traffic area” is your cat’s preferred litter box location. And, according to a very resourceful piece from Animal Planet, it’s best to avoid putting stairs between your cat and its litter box (especially for kittens), avoid tight spaces that might make your cat feel vulnerable, and, or course, don’t go moving the box around after you’ve chosen a location. Once you find the perfect place to keep the litter box in your house, your cat will surely be happy, and a happy cat means a happy owner.

Making Sure The Litter Box Location Is Well-Ventilated

Not that there’s too much you can do about this, but when looking for a spot to compromise – because that’s really what it is, a compromise – with your cat, you should not discount the importance of ventilation, or at least some moving air. We’ve already established that tight spots aren’t going to be agreeable to your kitty, and, after not too long, you’ll find them disagreeable, too. Even if there’s not a directly opposing window scheme to offer the perfect cross breeze, you can still consider the size of the room or area, how contained that space is, and, finally, how often anything stirs the air in this particular part of your home. Trust us on this one, and your time scooping will be much more pleasant.

Choose The Best Litter For Your Litter Box

We’ve touched on it some, but you can’t speak enough about the quality of your kitty litter. Whether you go deodorized or not, course or fine, clay or sand, bulk or boutique, there’s one factor that takes precedent when making this decision, and that’s how your kitty likes the litter you put in its litter box. Though there are a great deal of options out there, and very subtle differences between any of them, you can always be safe in choosing our tried and true Litter Robot Brand premium clumping litter. Again, whatever you wind up with, it’s most important that your cat is content, because, well, we don’t want to go into too much graphic detail here, but we’re sure you get the picture. Have a lovely [whatever time of day your enjoying this article], and we’ll look forward to chatting with you next time!

Cat Allergies: Why Are so Many People Allergic

Tuesday, 7 April, 2015 | Category: Tips | Comments (0)
|

There may be no single thing as irritating and aggravating as pet allergies, and, because of how common they are, it unfortunately doesn’t look like they’re going away anytime soon. Why, oh why, must it be our feline friends, our precious little pussycats, who wreak the most havoc on our temperamental immune systems? The answer to this question is actually simpler than meets the eye, and you may be pleased to know that, at the very least, it’s no cosmic slap in the face to prevent you from enjoying the company of a cat. It’s just science.

Cat Fur Or Hair Is Not The Real Reason You’re Allergic

Contrary to popular belief, your cat’s hair or fur is not the real reason you are allergic. Though your cat’s beautiful coat can be instrumental in the transmission of what is actually causing your allergies to flare violently, it’s not the hairs, themselves, that your body is rejecting. The secret that explains your cat allergy actually lies even deeper.

People With Cat Allergies Are Allergic To Proteins In Cat’s Saliva, Urine And Dander

According to WebMD, it is not the hairs to which we are allergic, but it is actually a protein found in your cat’s saliva, urine and dander. This protein is basically produced or occurs with any and every one of your cat’s bodily functions, so it’s nearly impossible to avoid. As with all allergies, what’s happening to you when you experience the symptoms of your cat allergy is that your overactive or hypersensitive immune system is responding to these otherwise harmless proteins as if they were dangerous foreign bodies, like a bacteria or virus, and attempting to flush them from your system. This is why you experience coughing, sneezing, teary or itchy eyes and irritated skin after coming into contact with a cat.

Did You Know That Cat Allergies Are Twice As Common As Dog Allergies

So, with much reluctance, as we try to avoid being the bearer of bad news as often as possible, there’s simply no getting around the fact that cat allergies take up the bulk of all pet allergies, and double the number of dog allergies out there. Again, while this imbalance may look like some form of universal injustice to the adoring owners and admirers of kitties, it’s actually no more than a fluke of science, completely out of our hands. The protein that we’ve just mentioned occurs in the saliva, urine and dander of canines, as well, but it just so happens that the feline equivalent is among the smallest and irritatingly stickiest allergen molecules, measuring in at roughly 1/10th the size of a dust allergen. Live Science explains that the incredibly microscopic size of these little protein molecules allows them to stay airborne for much longer than most other allergens, which, in turn, makes them ripe for inhaling and prompting a subsequent allergic reaction.

How To Live With Cat Allergies

This may come as bad news to many of you out there with a simultaneous love of cats and allergic affliction caused by their dander, but we are happy to inform you that all hope is not lost! You can persevere, so long as your love for you cat is pure and your resolve is strong. There are several preventative measures that can be taken in efforts of mitigating your cat allergy, and Petfinder has helpfully compiled a comprehensive list of the most effective strategies. Here are the top few…

  • Make you bedroom a cat-free zone. This means wash, or, better yet, replace your bedding. Allergen-proof mattress and pillow covers are highly recommended and can be purchased at many medical supply stores.
  • Establish designated areas where your cat can travel within your house. If you have an open-air enclosure, use this space to brush your cat and allow excess allergen-containing dander to blow away, rather than accumulating in your home.
  • Minimizing upholstered furniture and rugs or carpeting can vastly reduce the amount of allergen buildup in your home. Carpeting, in particular, can accumulate 100 times more allergens than hardwood floors.

Utilize these terrific strategies for preventing undue allergic flare-ups and you may very well sidestep the entire dilemma. As always, we wish you the very best, in this particular conundrum and in all other areas of your life. Ta-ta for now!

Baby On Board? Acclimate Your Cat or Kitten!    

Monday, 6 April, 2015 | Category: Tips | Comments (0)
|

If you’re expecting, then you’ve probably got quite a few things on your mind. Juggling priorities at a crucial juncture like this can be stressful, but if there’s one thing that you shouldn’t have to stress over, it’s making sure that your cat will be acclimated to the presence of a new member of the family. Here are a few easy ways to make sure that your cat and your baby get off on the right paw.

Maintain Your Cat’s Normal Schedule

As we’ve discussed, cats are generally creatures of routine. This means they like to be familiar with their space, their food, their litter and their schedule. Throwing a cat out of its routine can wreak havoc on not only its sense of calm and order, but also on yours, and that’s just one more thing that you do not need to be dealing with on top of everything else. While your routine may be thrown for a complete loop during your pregnancy, you’re also much more capable of dealing with this kind of irregularity. Your little kitty, on the other, is a bit more delicate when it comes to disturbances like this, so it’s best to keep your cat under the impression that nothing is changing, even though, in reality, everything is.

Help Your Cat Get Comfortable With Sounds

We know (or at least presume) that you’ve seen, and, more importantly, heard a baby before. Yes, they’re adorable, most of the time, but they can also be very, very loud. A crying baby is to your cat what that alarm setting that sounds like a nuclear power plant’s meltdown alarm at 5:45 in the morning is to you. Except your cat doesn’t have a snooze button for your baby, and you really don’t want it trying to figure out how to turn your baby off. You can find recordings online of babies crying, gurgling, yelling, laughing and making pretty much any other noise you can think of, and you can just play these aloud in your home to give your cat a chance to get used to some additional noise. Playing the T.V. and music a little louder can also give your cat a chance to acclimate to noise levels that it might not otherwise be used to or comfortable with, although we do not recommend air horns.

Introduce Your Cat To A Friend’s Baby

Though regular schedule and sample noise can be helpful in getting your cat acclimated to the presence of a new baby, there’s just no substitute for the real thing. If you happen to have friends who’ve just recently had a little one of their own, it’s a good idea to let your cat have some face time with this youngster. It’ll help your kitty see what a baby is all about and offer you the opportunity (which will become increasingly rare) to incrementally introduce a baby into your cat’s life. When your own little one comes along, you’re going all in on this cat-baby relationship. So, it’s best, if possible, to let your kitty get a sneak peek of what’s to come.

Be Calm When Your Baby Meets Your Cat

Finally, when your baby arrives and it’s time to introduce the little guy or gal to your cat, we recommend remaining calm, cool and collected, as any undue anxiety or stress is only going to make matters that much more difficult. So, keep a cool head about you, don’t sweat it and remember that, whatever happens, it’s just the first of many interactions and the two will be fast friends in no time. Well, we’ve got to run, but we’ll drop by again soon!
