Designed for extra-large cats or multiple-cat households, this litter box actually cleans itself, depositing waste into the disposable container, which seals away the waste and odors. When the container is full, just throw it away and replace with a fresh one (replacements sold separately). The litter box’s infrared sensor detects waste deposits and rakes them away 10 minutes after the cat leaves the litter box. If the cat re-enters and leaves the litter box before the initial 10 minutes have elapsed, the timer will automatically reset and delay the beginning of the cleaning cycle for an additional 10 minutes. The unit’s safety bar automatically stops the cleaning rake at the slightest touch, and its paw-cleaning ramp traps litter when the cat exits the box. The steel rake can be removed and the litter tray detaches for easy cleaning. Other highlights include an “on/off” switch and indicator light, a sleep timer for nighttime use, and a sensor-activated ioni (more…)
When you have a new cat, it is generally accepted that it is going to have its share of “little accidents” when it comes to using the toilet. As cats are creatures of instinct, it is only normal that, when it comes to performing natural bodily functions, it will basically respond to the “law of the jungle”, or to be more accurate it will urinate and defecate where it sees fit. If your cat is an indoor pet, this will generally take the shape of going on your carpet or hardwood floor, and then trying unsuccessfully to bury it.

Webkinz Charm – BLACK AND WHITE CAT
From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 1-Short on plot and long on rhyming words, this series entry is another book of singsong verse that stretches to create a cohesive text. When a fat cat sits on a rat’s mat, the rodent tries to convince the animal to move, but to no avail. He calls in his friends bat and hat to help, but it is only after Wilma the witch returns home that the cat moves from the mat. Karlin’s illustrations show a golden plump feline just quietly waiting for a confrontation, a timid but determined rat, a somewhat determined bat (the animal variety), and a nondescript hat with two legs and two arms. Soft, gentle colors wash the characters in sunny shades but do not lessen the intensity of the personalities. Emerging readers may have some difficulty in predicting the less-than-logical story line, but the repeated sounds and rhyming words will reinforce their decoding skills. While there are many stronger easy-to-read texts by authors such as Lillian (more…)
Training a cat does not need to be any more difficult than training a dog. In fact, you will find that as long as you are faithful to the principles of cat training and discipline, that your cat will respect your authority and behave more reasonably. However, it is important to remember that the conferment of this power should not be seen as licence to go overboard with the punishment.
One mistake that any pets owners make is in thinking that all old wives’ tales work because there is some truth in there, somewhere. When you think about it, a cat may very well stop digging in your carpet because you slap it for doing so. It will do the same if you throw a brick at it – but do you want to be that person?
