Cat Fun With Petmate


58018_cat_scratch_wheel_teal3

As you have seen animals are a big part of our family. With 3 kids, 4 dogs and 2 cats we are quite a large family to.lol Petmate has really blessed me with a great bunch of reviews to do. My animal babies have had a great time reviewing these products. There is just way to much good stuff to cram it all in one post so here is the run down on our kitty fun products. This cat wheel my cats haven't yet messed with but they are extreme stratchers so I have no doubt that once they figure it out they will really enjoy it.lol It is made of durable plastic covered in carpet. The bottom is a cardboard emory material perfect to help file down their nails and comes complete with catnip. They are however LOVING the other two great products that I was sent to review.
First was a product from their partner company FAT CAT which is ironically funny considering this is my chubby cats favorite toy.lol The Fat Cat Tiki Hut is easy to assemble and really durable. I was a little worried at first because it is held together by velcro and well.....my cat is nearly 15 pounds.lol He has really loved sitting on top and scrathing the living day lights out of this toy! He even squeezed himself inside once haha which is not quite big enough for him. My thinner cat however loves to be inside of it and attack his friend.lol Lastly was the Fat Cat Boogy Mat I have used this mat on the back end of my couch to give somewhere else for the hair to collect. They already LOVED playing on the back of my couch and now it seems to be even more fun! Plus I can take it outside and shake all the hair off instead of having to tape  hair off my couch. You wouldn't believe how much how this family collects......then again you probably would.lol Not only is it a great furniture saver but it also makes crinkly sounds when they walk about on it and comes with catnip to encourage more play. Available in many different styles. Now hopefully with all these toys(and his new diet) my cat can start losing some much needed weight. You never know he may fit into his tiki hut one day hehe. Thank you Petmate and Fat Cat for these great products to reivew! Join me later in the week as I go over some of the great new products that my puppies are loving :O) including the fun friends that have seen Sparky through his spell of parvo.

**I recieved the above mentioned items in order to complete a full and honest review. All thought expressed are that of my own and were in no way influenced.**

Homemade Fly Traps

We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need:
2 Cups of Sugar
2 Cups of Water
1 Package Sugar Free Jello
A candy Thermometer

Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …

Killing Ants Safely

LOL okay I know the title seems a bit silly. Here is West Texas ants are a BIG problem. Not only do they bite, but well they are really annoying! They sneak into every crack in your house no matter how hard you try. With pets though you are very limited to the products you can safely use to kill ants. As time goes on more and more I am concerned about the products I keep in this house and the effect they have on not only me and my children, but my pets. When looking for ways to rid myself of these pests I found a simple, cheap, and effective means to do so. CORNMEAL! Yep it is very simple, for about $2 a bag I can treat weekly for an entire year! While it doesn't kill them all it has certainly brought down the population so that now it isn't even noticeable. All you do it sprinkle it on top of their mounds and watch the greedy little ants drag it all inside! When eaten it expands and POOF! ;O) You get the picture.
