Any cat lover who has shared a powerful and life affecting relationship with a cat companion will be able to relate to this book. The stories are precious and the ending is a real tearjerker. Dewey was indeed a truly special cat.
12/30/08 – It finally arrived! Mommy is always late with our Christmas gifts because she can never decide what to get… well today when we woke up from our naps she led us to her office. Then she unleashed the crazy string game. She says it’s official name is the Fling-ama-String. Whatever you call it, this thing drives me and my brother CRAZY! When she first turned it on he totally pushed me out of the way to investigate. (Just like a rude big brother huh?) After he nearly “got” the thing he gave me a chance. Now all I a do it sit in front of it waiting for the string even if it’s not on. Mommy says I have an unhealthy fixation. It’s the perfect toy for me because I’m a super active kitty who really tires mommy out sometimes with all the playing I require. ~Jonah Cat
The difference between the Catit fountain and the Drinkwell Platinum is that the Drinkwell fountain operates more like a faucet.Some cats (like Jake) prefer to drink from a stream of water like this. So here’s a quick rundown:
• Both fountains filter water and add oxygen.
• The Drinkwell holds one full gallon of water so it doesn’t require as frequent refilling as the Catit which has a three liter capacity.
• The Catit is a little easier to clean (I think) and has a more eye pleasing design in my opinion but it really comes down to how your cat prefers to drink water. (Jake prefers the Drinkwell but Micah likes both)
• The Drinkwell utilizes a stream of water while the Catit has water that runs over a plastic dome into a bowl.
We put the Drinkwell fountain in the family room and this new location combined with the novelty of running water makes it the main attraction in the house. After meals there’s a queue of cats waiting to get a turn to drink. All in all both fountains get plenty of use which is what really all that matters.
A few weeks ago I wrote about how I finally found the multi-cat formula of Swheat Scoop cat litter. The clumping and odor controlling capabilities are supposed to be greatly improved. Well here are the results of our usage over the last couple of weeks…
This is a whole new cat litter!! I like Swheat Scoop but I LOVE the new formula even more! It seriously clumps hard like clay litter. The original clumped “alright” but has a tendency to crumble when you scoop. The new multi-cat formula clumps hard and fast and controls odor even more… I like to buy 40 lb bags but the largest I’ve been able to find so far in this formula is 25 lbs. Once I’m able to find 40 lb bags of the multi cat formula somwhere I am going to stock up!
