Adopt...Don't ShopHi 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!

  2. Oh gosh, what a hard decision. I think my cats would really like the Comfy Clamshell bed. Great review, Ernie!

  3. Guys that looks absolutely amazing, thanks fur sharing!

    Big hugs

    Basil & Co xox

  4. We would love to win The Vault Marinator. Mom Peggy currently uses baggies but she likes this one much better. That Jackson Galaxy sure knows what kitties like!

  5. The bed looks so comfy! But how would I keep the dog out of it?

  6. mom likes the idea of the marinator….but what is wrong with extra nip on the toys?? 🙂

  7. That bed looks fab, Ernie! It’s the perfect color for you! (And Wally, too.)

  8. I’d pick the marinator because I’d never heard of something like it before, and I would be interested in seeing how well it worked with my kitty.

  9. An excellent job of presenting these two great items, Ernie! How nice that Wally helped out too!

  10. Those both look like pretty cool items!!!

  11. We think it is so cool that you selected three totally different items than we did. Stop by tomorrow for Calista’s birthday party and a chance to win the Jackson Galaxy Space Station. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy

  12. aren’t those products just the best? We aren’t entering because we picked the same things (plus I think a couple different ones, not sure), we are holding separate give-away for each starting in the next couple weeks or so. Good luck to all who enter!

  13. i’m going to have to purchase both those items for the boyz, who all came from the same shelter. it was difficult not adopting all the cats when I went to meet the boyz.

  14. We have three cats who move between rooms. I’m always in need of more cat beds so they each have one in the main rooms they frequent. I’d go with the Comfy Clamshell bed if I win.

  15. OMC! I wish we could have both, but we have tons of beds so it would have to be the marinator.

  16. That bed looks awesome! We actually have a Vault Marinator… my human put some old toys in it and promptly forgot about them! Maybe this will inspire her to fetch them.

  17. Well, I am leaving a comment on your post and am so happy that it is Adopt a Kitty day and thank you for alerting us.

  18. WOW! Two totally cool goodies from Mr. Galaxy and choosing one is a toughie for sure – lucky you to get BOTH………..I kinda like that totally cool beddie myself. Thanks for being so generous to have a giveaway guys……

    Hugs, Teddy

  19. That bed looks so comfy, and I love the color. You and Wally look so handsome on it! I have tried re-nipping toys in plastic bags, too, and you’re right, the catnip gets all over everything. Thanks for sharing about these items.

  20. both of these products look very neat so if we were to win … we’d be happy no matter what. thank you 🙂

  21. The comfy clamshell bed looks cool. Thanks for the chance to win.

  22. Either one would work for us!

  23. It would be hard to choose, but we’d pick the clamshell bed: you can never have enough napping spots.

  24. The clamshell bed would be purrfect and well used here. Mom does marinate the toys when she rotates them. It helps! Thanks, guys. Hugs.

  25. Hi guys! Both these products look fantastic. I love the pictures of you two using the clam shell bed (Ernie you look great in purple). We aren’t entering because we just recently won something from you, but we know there are some lucky kitties out there.

  32. I think that clamshell bed is a trap!

  33. That clam shell bed looks pretty glorious, guys! And that marinator sounds terrific. Those nip toys do sometime need a refresh, don’t they?

  40. I would pick the comfy clamshell…My cat would LOVE this….

  41. Wow, both things are so cool, and such great ideas! Sam doesn’t play with her catnip toys much, so we would definitely choose the bed.
