Ragdoll Cat Adoption Falls Church, VA: RIVERSHORE RAGS T-REX - Ragdoll Rescue Falls Church, VA

Saturday, May 25, 2013 by Ragdoll Rehoming Team

Ragdoll Rescue Falls Church, VA****ADOPTED***

T-Rex is an 11-year-old registered mitted blue point Ragdoll I adopted over a year ago. Unfortunately he has been very unhappy in my small condo and desperately wants more attention and interaction than my work schedule allows. He came from a three-story townhouse where he grew up with a German Shepherd, and I believe that he really misses both the space and the companionship of a dog.

I discovered that T-Rex has Feline Herpes Virus after I adopted him. The disease is only transmittable to other cats, not dogs or humans or other animals, so he needs to be either the only cat or with other FHV+ cat(s). His eyes tear but it is not severe. He is on Z/D allergy cat food and Prednisone to help keep the disease and stomach sensitivities under control.

T-Rex craves attention and will let you brush, body/nail clip, and even bathe him without scratching. He's a big boy at over 16 pounds, which is typical of Ragdolls.

T-Rex needs to be in a home where he will have more attention and companionship. Can you provide that for him? If so, I will provide his bowls, food and water dishes, Z/D food, Predisone allergy prescription, scratching posts, brushes, cat tree, beds, blankets, window perch, toys and extra-large litter box. Small re-homing fee will be donated to the Fairfax County Animal Shelter.

Age: 11
Sex: neutered male
Fee: $200 (to be donated to Fairfax County Animal Shelter)
Location: Falls Church, VA

Hagen Catit Toys - There's One for Everyone!

Monday, April 8, 2013 by Jenny Dean

Catit Design Senses Scratch PadHagen Catit Design provides a myriad of options for every type of cat. You say your cat likes a nice, firm cat scratching pole? They've got you covered. Or how about some interactive toys? Yep, got that too. Hagen even offers a cat drinking fountain with purified water. What will these guys think of next?

One of the scratchers that Hagen has available is actually in an Hourglass shape. This design uses a combination of sisal rope and corn husks to keep your cat scratching the pole and not your furniture! Cats also seem to love the shape of the Catit Style Blow Molded Scratcher because it's not just a boring straight one. This style gives them more variety to satisfy their scratching needs.

As for interactive cat toys, Catit more than meets this need. The Hagen brand supplies an interactive toy sure to impress even the most aloof cats. They have a Catit Design Senses Scratch Pad that allows your cat to massage the pads while stimulating his senses. Their Senses Play Circuit keeps your cat chasing after the balls in it, which stop and move to catch his attention. For the cat with strong hunting instincts, this is sure to appeal. Catit Design goes so far as to provide a Senses Massage Center for the kitten who simply wants to relax.

Hagen Catit Design Fresh and Clear Cat Drinking Fountain, Original Not only is there a Catit Design toy for every cat out there, but there's also a cat water fountain available to keep your furry friend happy. Hagen offers a design that keeps fresh water flowing because every cat owner knows how picky their little ones can be. Cats tend to avoid drinking stagnant water, which is understandable. The Catit Design Fresh and Clear Cat Drinking Fountain solves this problem by keeping the water running. This fountain also comes with a filter to remove taste and odor problems from the water. Hooray!
 

An Easier Alternative to Typical Laser Pointers

Tuesday, March 26, 2013 by Jenny Dean

FroliCat BOLT Interactive Laser Pet ToyAs far as interactive cat toys go, the FroliCat BOLT Interactive Laser Pet Toy is at the top of this category. If you're a cat lover or owner, you know that cats go absolutely wild over laser pointers. They will literally tire themselves out chasing after these tiny red dots for hours. This can be a bit of a pain for you though, if you're the one who has to move the pointer around to keep them entertained.

The purpose of the FroliCat BOLT Interactive Laser Pet Toy is to keep your cat amused and allow them to use up their energy while you maintain yours. This is honestly probably the best cat toy, if not at least one of them, out there on the market today because it combines something cats absolutely love with less effort on the owner's part. Coming in a sleek white design, what this device does is generate random laser patterns. You can use it manually or you can set it down on a flat surface and allow the device to work on its own. After fifteen minutes, the device will shut off, although there is also a manual on/off power mode button.

All this device requires is four AA batteries and a cat who loves laser pointers. For cat owners with hands and fingers cramping from wielding a laser pointer, the FroliCat BOLT Laser Pet Toy is one of the top cat toys out there because of the hassle it saves them while keeping their beloved pet happy.
 

Teaching Your Cat to Drink Well

Tuesday, March 19, 2013 by Jenny Dean

Drinkwell Original Pet FountainThe Drinkwell Original Pet Fountain says it all in its name; we want our pets to drink well and maintain their health. Let's face it, our lives wouldn't be the same without these sweet creatures at our sides. Providing him or her a cat water fountain is only one step in the right direction, but it's a very important one. Impurities, sediment, and bad tastes and odors tend to get into our cats' drinking water. Drinkwell provides a fountain with a constant stream of water that also uses a charcoal filter. This filter removes all of the issues that will exacerbate a cat's desire not to drink water. Cats tend not to recognize thirst as quickly as humans, which causes dehydration to be a worry in the first place. In addition, they certainly do not want to be consuming dirty, stagnant water when they finally do drink. This is one of the best cat products out there because its focus is your friend's health.

Drinkwell Fountain Premium Replacement Filter 3 packYour cat will also take great interest in the stream of fresh water falling from the fountain. In this way, the fountain also acts as an interactive cat toy that will last quite a long time. The filter within the device is replaceable too so this isn't one of those fountains that will require you to replace the entire item. The brand actually sells a Drinkwell Fountain Premium Replacement Filter 3 pack for a reasonable price, and these filters can last up to a month.

On top of all of these other perks, the product can hold 50 ounces of flowing water so you do not have to worry constantly about whether your cat is staying well-hydrated when you're not at home.
 

 

A DVD That Even Cats Will Love

Wednesday, February 27, 2013 by Jenny Dean

Cat Sitter DVDAnyone who has ever owned a cat knows just how much these little critters can come to enjoy watching television. It's interactive cat toys like this that hold their attention. This is lucky for cat owners who do not have as much free time to keep their indoor cats entertained. If you have a television, all you need is the Cat Sitter DVD.

"DVDs for cats?" you ask. Yes, this may seem like one of the funniest cat toys online, but more than a handful of reviewers absolutely love this DVD. They have found their indoor cats busy for hours watching and listening to it. Right now there are multiple Cat Sitter DVDs, which feature a variety of animated animals, such as hamsters, birds, fish, and rats. These animations are accompanied by realistic noises of nature to keep your cat on its toes. If you're the type of person who comes home from a long day of work and has barely got the energy to change into pajamas, you may want to look into purchasing one of these DVDs to keep your cat entertained. These DVDs will hold its attention while allowing it to get some much-needed exercise. Not even a cat climbing tree compares to the amount of fun your precious friend will have with these.

There are very few negative remarks about these DVDs, and most pet owners have remarked that they were surprised they work so well. Many of these owners have cats who are full of energy and never seem to stop for even a moment. These same cats will, however, wait for the moment their owners turn on the television. It is as if they are in anticipation that their favorite show is about to come on!
 

Bring Out the Fierce Hunter Within Your Cat

Saturday, February 23, 2013 by Jenny Dean

Undercover Mouse Electronic Cat Toy

All cats love to hunt. It's just a matter of natural instinct to them. Unfortunately, most of us cat owners don't want to wake up to dead rats or birds around the house or yard. Luckily, there's a way for our cats to hone their hunting skills while we retain peace of mind. One of the cat toys that presents a proper solution to this predicament is the Undercover Mouse Electronic Cat Toy, which consists of a yellow nylon cover that the mouse tail pokes out from under. In the middle of the cover, you will find a knob to adjust settings.

This toy features a mouse tail which is set to move at random and has three different settings to determine its speed. As the tail circles the cover it's under, and then stops abruptly to turn around, your cat will take advantage of the thrill of the hunt. You will find your cat in the position to pounce while not once taking his or her eyes off of the tail. This interactive cat toy is a wonderful way to catch up on your alone time while your furry friend is being entertained.

To get the best use out of the Undercover Mouse, use it on a bare floor so that the carpet doesn't slow it down. Don't be surprised if your cat is still playing with this toy after a few months. This product is almost comparable to cat gyms in that it keeps your pet exercising as he or she continues to try to catch that darn mouse.

Get the “Feline Flyer” to get your cat healthy and active. This will bring you and your cat closer with the time you spend with one another.
 

Moody Pet Fling-ama-String Motorized Interactive Cat Toy

Wednesday, January 2, 2013 by Jenny Dean

Moody Pet Fling-ama-String Motorized Interactive Cat ToyDoes your cat enjoy stalking and pouncing? Does your cat go boners over a dangling piece of string?  Does your cat sit and play with the simplest of toys?  If the answer is yes to any of these questions, then the Moody Pet Fling-ama-String Motorized Interactive Cat Toy is what you need!

The Fling-ama-String Toy is a motorized cat toy designed to play on your cat’s natural instincts to bat and lunge. Feather cat toys can hold a cat’s attention for a little while, but all too often they lose their appeal far too quickly. Cat Climbing Trees and Lotus Cat Trees can offer a chance to climb and scratch, but do not do anything for a cat’s desire to stalk and pounce.

Fling-ama-String Toys hook over any standard doorknobs and the motorized toy dangles, flicks, and twirls a string in a tantalizing dance that will grab any cat’s attention.  Watch as your cat stalks and pounces again and again.

The simple design will keep even the laziest of cats coming back for more. This toy is a great easy to encourage exercise among lazy cats and interaction for the home that has multiple cats.

The interiors are nice and comfortable, and the holes are easily big enough for a slightly larger than average cat to get through.

The Stimulo Cat Feeder for All Round Entertainment

Thursday, December 20, 2012 by Jenny Dean

It’s no secret that cats love cat snacks but simply handing a snack, or treat, to your cat does nothing to stimulate their mind or entertain them. The Stimulo cat feeder does though, and the process of getting the food from the feeder is just as entertaining for you as it is for your cat.

This particular cat feeder has been labeled by vets and pet behaviorists as an interactive toy, and if you only add a treat at a time while your cat isn’t looking it can take them a few minutes each time to locate and retrieve it.

Alternatively you could put the feeder in outdoor cat playpens before you place your cat inside and let him/her root out the treats in their own good time. The feeder is easy to clean, is dishwasher safe and won’t move even during a rigorous pawing session.

If you’re looking for stimulating cat toys online then this one is definitely worth considering. Not only does it satisfy your cat’s natural instinct to hunt and forage it also stops your cat from eating to quickly and suffering from digestive tract problems. So in effect you’re solving two problems with one product.

Trigg and Charlie checking out the Frolicat TWITCH Interactive Cat ToyWe have reviewed other Frolicat cat toys like their BOLT and the SWAY, so when I heard that they had a new Frolicat TWITCH, I wanted to give it a try!  They were nice enough to send one off to us!

The TWITCH is an interactive cat toy that bounces and swings a teaser toy (we got a red soft ball with feathers sticking out of it) - it is electronic - so it requires 3 AAA batteries to operate.  There is a button on the top of the device that you press to make it move - you can also set it to move throughout the day by holding it down for a bit.

Charlie and Trigg were immediately attracted to it, the teaser toy and the entire thing put together!

You can buy the Frolicat TWITCH now on Amazon.com for $16.09.

Below are a few videos I shot during the unveiling process to the cats.



The New Nintendogs + Cats for the Nintendo 3DS

Friday, April 15, 2011 by Jenny Dean

This is a sponsored post.

NintendoNintendogs + Cats for the Nintendo 3DS console is a real time pet simulator game that allows you to raise kittens and puppies into cats and dogs. Just like the old Nintendogs game, this one comes in three versions, each with a set of breeds already unlocked plus the potential to unlock new breeds as you progress and interact with your canine or feline friends. Each cartridge has nine different breeds, including the dog in the title plus three types of cat.

The three Nintendogs starter packages are; French Bulldog and friends, Golden Retriever and friends and Toy Poodle and friends. Cats are included in all the games but to access them you must go to the kennel and choose your first puppy.

Give your puppy a name and teach it basic commands, such as sitting. Earn money through tasks and activities and you will then be allowed to return to the kennel to select a kitten.

There isn't such a wide choice of cats available because the focus of Nintendo 3DS Dogs + Cats is biased somewhat towards dog lovers. However, you can choose from three different types of kitten (the choice of cats is the same in each version of the game). Pick a standard striped tabby, oriental short-haired or long-haired kitten and take it home.

Interact and care for your cat for rewards. Unlike dogs, kittens rarely do as they are told and spend much of the time playing, napping and climbing cat scratching poles. You cannot teach cats tricks, but if you buy them special kitten food and toys they will purr. Occasionally your new kitten will bring you a gift if you give them plenty of attention.

Earn money by entering competitions with your pet and spend it on pampering your puppy. There are six shops in the Nintendo 3DS Dogs + Cats where you can buy accessories, food, clothes and furniture and there is even a pet hotel.

The 3DS dogs and cats can recognise their owners using the video camera in the console and react to you as you move around. Speak in to the microphone to give voice commands and train your puppy to follow instructions and prepare for competitions.

Make friends with other pet owners out and about in the game and share information using the Nintendo 3DS StreetPass technology to interact with people in the real world as you pass by them in the street, on the bus or at school – even when your DS is closed. The more stuff you share with other gamers, the more accessibility you get in the game allowing you to unlock new breeds and cool toys and accessories.
