I'm sitting here keeping cool

Hey, guys…it’s been hotter than h-e-double hockey sticks around here the last couple of days. Thank cod for the cold air blowing thingy…which is where I’ve been spending most of my time. Funny, this thingy blows out hot air when it’s cold outside and cold air when it’s hot outside.  How does it know?  One of the mysteries of life…

As long as this heat wave continues, I’m not budging from this spot.  So I took my selfie from here.

This is my cool selfie

How’s this for one cool selfie?

I'm one tough mancat

Y’know…I’m not just a handsome face…I’m also one tough mancat.  And now I’ve got proof.  Lemme tell you what happened the other night.

It was late and the mom was upstairs getting ready to go to bed.  I was sitting in the kitchen window like I do most nights surveying my territory.  When suddenly, I spotted something outside on the patio.  It was an introoder!  How dare it come into my yard!  I yelled at it and jumped on the window screen…maybe just a little too hard.  But I wanted to get that introoder and make sure it knew whose turf this was.

The mom heard all the commotion and came running downstairs.  She found me really upset…I was growling and my tail was about 3 times its normal size.  I ran from door to window looking for that introoder but it had taken off…in fear of its life, no doubt.

The mom managed to calm me down.  She looked outside but she didn’t see any introoder.  She wondered what I saw.  Was it a raccoon or a vishus deer or something else?  She asked me but I was still a little upset and just couldn’t talk about it.

Then she saw the window screen.

I put a hole in the screen

I really did some damage

Doods!  Look what I did…I tore a 2 inch hole in it!  Whoa!  The mom was not very happy about it but grateful that I didn’t push the whole screen out and end up outside.  The introoder was lucky that’s all I did.

That introoder was lucky

The next day the mom took the torn screen out to have it repaired.  She borrowed a screen from another window and put it in until the old screen was fixed. 

The next night, there I was…sitting in the kitchen window again…but this time the mom was right there, too.  And y’know what? That introoder returned!  What gall!  Oh, I got really really mad this time, but the mom was quick and closed the window so I couldn’t jump at it.  She looked outside and saw the introoder.  It was a cat…one we’ve never seen before.  It ran off again.  Wimp.

I know you're out there, introoder cat

Oh yeah…I am one tough mancat…defending my turf.  I know that introoder is out there…and I’m ready for him if he comes back.  But he wouldn’t dare….

wally-petsafelogo-2Hey everybuddy.  Wally here.  Y’know, many pet parents don’t know the benefits of making sure their pets drink enough water.  So, PetSafe®, the maker of many innovative pet products, has declared July as National Pet Hydration Awareness Month to help bring awareness to the importance of proper pet hydration.  And we’re helping to spread the word about it.

Proper hydration can help cats and dogs with things like:
– Preventing urinary tract infections and urinary disease
– Promoting healthy kidney function
– Aiding with energy levels and regulating body temperatures
– Speeding recovery time from sickness or surgery

See??  H2O is really important for us!

Signs of dehydration in cats and dogs

Did you know that cats and dogs need about one ounce of water per pound of body weight each day to stay properly hydrated?  Let’s see…I weigh about 14 pounds.  That means I need about 14 ounces of water a day.  Now some of that water I get through eating my canned stinky goodness.  But another way is by actually drinking water, which most of us cats don’t do enough of.  So it’s important to make water attractive to us cats so we’ll wanna drink more.

Many cats, me included, like the sight and sound of running water.  A fountain is a way to give your cat running water to drink without having to leave the water faucet on all day.

PetSafe Drinkwell Sedona pet fountain

PetSafe® has some pretty cool pet fountains.  One of those is the Drinkwell® Sedona.  PetSafe® sent us a Sedona pet fountain to try out.  It’s got a cutting-edge design with a ceramic tower and an unbreakable plastic bowl that minimizes spills and splashes.  It holds 100 ounces of water that makes it great for cats and dogs…or for multi-pet households.  The filter in it keeps the water fresh longer.  It was really easy to set up…even the mom could figure it out…and it’s easy to clean, too.  You can even put it in the dishwasher if you want.  Are you one of those cats that’s a little scared by the noise some drinking fountains make?  You won’t be scared of the Drinkwell® Sedona because it’s whisper quiet.  Seriously…it really is.

This water tastes great!

This is one stylish fountain that makes me feel like one cool cat when I’m drinking from it.  I give it a big *SLURP*!!

So tell me, humans…do you have a water fountain for your pets to help keep them properly hydrated?

Disclaimer:  We received the PetSafe® Drinkwell® Sedona pet fountain as compensation to help spread the word about National Pet Hydration Month, but that did not affect our opinion of it at all.  The Island Cats will always give a fair and honest review, and will only share information that we feel is relevant to our readers.

I forgot it was #SelfieSunday

Oh cod…I was napping here on the bed and I completely forgot to take a selfie for today.  C’mon, mom…put the flashy box down on the bed so I can take my selfie.

I forgot to look at the camera

Rats!  I forgot to look at the flashy box when I snapped this one.  Oh well…it will have to do.

I See Bugs

Hi Zoey.  Whatcha doing?

Watching bugs.

Bugs?!?  You can’t see any bugs out there.  It’s waaaay too dark.

You’re wrong, Ernie.  I see lots of bugs.  Some of them fly right up to the door.  I’m gonna catch one of them.

ernie-zoey-door-2

Zoey, you’re wasting your time.  You’ll never catch a bug…not with the door in the way.  You’d have better luck catching bugs that’re inside the house.

No…I’m gonna sit here until I catch one that’s out there.

You’ll be sitting here a long time, Zoey.  Crazy girlcat.  Sheesh.

While Zoey tries to catch a bug that she’ll never catch, I’ll announce the winner of our BlogPaws Swag Giveaway.  The lucky winners are…Michelle and her cat, Cheshire.  Congratulations!  We’ll be sending the swag out to you real soon!
