August 8th is International Cat Day, and we want to wish all those pet parents a happy one.
The festivities were put together for the first time in 2002 by IFAW, the International Fund for Animal Welfare, among other animal rights groups, to celebrate the “most popular pet on the plant.” Even today cats are the most popular pet in the United States. Sorry, dog people! While it’s true that there are more households in the USA with dogs in them, according to the American Pet Products Association 2015 survey, there are more households with multiple cats, so felines outnumber canines overall, 85.8 million vs 77.8 million.
What that translates to at Kriser’s is a bunch of treats and toys for your favorite feline this summer. Come visit us this International Cat Day!
Nekochan BirBug & Telescoping Rod
The Neko Birbug has a unique ability to glide, making this toy perfect for upwardly mobile cats. Wide, shiny iridescent wings help produce a unique gliding movement, and cats love to chance the feathers, dangly legs, tail hairs and body in colors he or she can see. A satisfying catch will repeatedly excite your cats hunting instincts. The BirBug fits great on the NekoChan telescoping rod, which can also be used with an array of other Nekochan accessories!
Pioneer Raindrop Ceramic Fountain and Filter
The Pioneer Raindrop Ceramic fountain is a must in a feline household! This durable, easy to clean and maintain, continuous flow filtered drinking fountain for pets is dishwasher safe and has an easy to access replaceable charcoal filter for clean, pure, healthy water. Its heavy duty ceramic bowl holds 60oz of water and features a unique raindrop shape, stylish enough for any room.
It appeals to a cat’s natural tendency to hunt for flowing water, rather than the still bowl you may currently have, and the continuous flow encourages cats to drink, vital particularly for pets on a kibble diet.
We are also carrying a 3 pack of the replaceable water filters, which are vital for keeping the water clean and safe. Filter replacement and pump maintenance instructions are available on the Pioneer website at http://www.pioneerpet.com/instructions/
P.L.A.Y. Leeloo Cat Scratcher
This scratcher satisfies and supports your cat’s natural scratching behavior. Made out of FDA certified corrugated recycled paper that provides a unique shape for scratching surfaces, angles and lounging, it’s a design both you and your kitty can agree on. Plus, the fiber patters are higher quality and more durable than many more standard scratchers out there and should prevent too much excessive fiber shedding.
We can’t wait to help you find the perfect options for your kitty! Come on in and see your Kriser’s Pack Member to find a great option today.
