The Pet Talk blog features the adventures of Daisy the Curly Cat, a cat owned by one of our employees Abby.
As you may or may not know, if you order cat supplies from PetMeds, you might find a surprise with your order: a bag of free catnip! It is hard to believe, but up to 30% of cats do not enjoy catnip and some cats do not even know what to do with it. Never fear, I am here to educate you so you can get maximum enjoyment from your baggie of catnip.
Hello everybuddy. Are you in the mood for a riddle? Well I am, so let’s go!
Since National Hairball Awareness Day is this Friday, I thought I would talk about hairballs today. That furry blob in the picture is not a REAL hairball, it is just for demonstration purposes. I am a lucky cat because I almost never get hairballs, on account of my curly fur. Because I don’t shed much I do not ingest very much fur, so I wasn’t able to produce a real live hairball for you. But hairballs are a big problem for lots of other cats! Luckily, most cats are very thoughtful and make a loud yakkety-yack noise before coughing up a hairball.
Did you know that April is National Pet First Aid Awareness Month? Well, now you know! Any cat or dog can have an accident or emergency, so being prepared is important. For example, what if I sprained my arm?
Happy April Fools Day! This is one of my most favorite days, because I love playing tricks and I have something extra special planned for today.
Please do not tell Harley this is just a joke! Hehhehheh…
In case you didn’t know, the Easter Bunny is on the way! He will be hopping around here in less than a week. So today I am giving you some important tips about finding the Easter Bunny so you are prepared. My first tip is to wear an Easter-themed kerchief like this. If the Easter Bunny likes it, you could receive more treats and toys in your basket. Also, the bright color will make it easier for the Easter Bunny to find you. I recommend orange.
Spring and Easter are just around the corner and that means… Peeps season! I do not know why, but I am crazy about Peeps. This is very unusual because cats actually lack the ability to taste or sense sweet flavors. Every year, I get to savor a little taste of the sugary goodness. The yellow bunnies taste especially good.
I have examined my paw very closely and realized… I do not have thumbs! In fact, NONE of my paws have thumbs. This is quite an oversight because if I had thumbs, there are many awesome things I could do.
