Hi guys! Ernie here. June is Adopt a Shelter Cat Month where people are encouraged to go to their local shelters to adopt a cat or kitten. There’re so many wonderful ones sitting in shelters right now looking for homes. If you’re looking to adopt a cat, please check out your local shelter. I’m sure you’ll find the purrfect feline companion there for you.
Y’know…I was a shelter cat and I know all too well about what it’s like in the shelter waiting to find a forever home. Lemme tell you…it’s not fun. But I’m one of the lucky ones. I was adopted and now have a comfy life here on the Island. And you know what? It got even more comfier recently when the nice people from Petmate® sent us this new Comfy Clamshell bed for us to try out.
The Comfy Clamshell Bed Delivers Comfiness
The Comfy Clamshell was developed and designed by the famous Jackson Galaxy, cat behaviorist and host of Animal Planet’s “My Cat from Hell.” He designs all of his cat products around those things that come naturally to us cats…hunting, catching, killing, eating, grooming and sleeping.
For sleeping, he came up with the Comfy Clamshell bed…and it sure lives up to its name. It’s a large bed with the softest fleece on one side and a durable vinyl-type fabric on the other. It can be laid flat for a large surface to lounge on. When flat like this, it measures a whopping 34 inches across…giving lots of room to stretch out…or to share if you’re so inclined.
It can also be cinched up by pulling on the drawstring to make a cozy bed that gives added comfort and security as Wally’s showing. There’s a pocket on the side for storing the drawstring to keep it out of the way of playful paws.
As soon as the mom put the Comfy Clamshell out, we made a beeline for it. Wally says it’s the purrfect place for making biscuits. We keep the Comfy Clamshell out all the time and it is now one of our favorite spots to nap.
Freshen Up Old Catnip Toys with The Vault Marinator
The Petmate® people also sent us the Jackson Galaxy™ The Vault Marinator. You know how catnip toys seem to lose their nippy aroma over time? And an old nip toy doesn’t get played with very much, am I right?
By using The Vault Marinator, you can make those old nip toys smell like new again. All you do is fill the sides and bottom of The Vault with some dry catnip, fill the center part with those old cat toys and put the top back on. Y’know…the mom tried doing something like this by putting our old toys in a plastic bag with some catnip. While it made those old toys smell nippier, it got catnip all over them which was a little messy. The Vault marinates the toys without the mess. It’s the purrfect place to store cat toys to ensure that you always have infused-nip toys on hand.
And you know how us cats love our nip toys!
