Stuff We Love

Mod­ern Cat staffers’ picks of the lit­ter

Modern Cat - - Contents -

1 I’m a sucker for any­thing with a cat on it, so I love the wide va­ri­ety of prod­ucts in the Lau­rel Burch col­lec­tion from My Three Cats. Cloth­ing, ac­ces­sories, and jew­ellery all come em­bla­zoned with the colour­ful and eye-catch­ing art­work of Lau­rel Burch. Liv­ing in the rainy Pa­cific North­west, I es­pe­cially love the Fuch­sia Whiskered Cat Um­brella.

—Jen ($25, mythree­cats.com) 2 Is your cat bored? Not with Shru! Shru au­to­mat­i­cally re­sponds to your cat’s play by mim­ick­ing a small an­i­mal’s er­ratic move­ments and sounds. It turns on and off au­to­mat­i­cally through­out the day to keep your cat en­ter­tained while you’re away, and is recharge­able by USB!— Rachel ($98, pdx­pet­de­sign.com)

3 My least favourite part about deal­ing with the lit­ter box—aside from the ob­vi­ous— is lug­ging heavy tubs and try­ing to get all of the lit­ter IN the box. The pack­ag­ing of Cats In­cred­i­ble’s awe­some lit­ter is a game-changer and a back-saver! With the easy pour­ing spout and two han­dles, chang­ing the lit­ter is fi­nally a breeze.— Laura ($17, LucyPetProd­ucts.com)

4 My cat friend Matilda loves Griz­zly Su­per Foods by Griz­zly Pet Prod­ucts! Made with wild Alaskan salmon, or­ganic co­conut meal, and sprouted or­ganic quinoa, this grain-free food is packed with es­sen­tial amino acids. It is sure to im­prove even the cranki­est cat’s mood!— Eleanor ($28, griz­zlypet­prod­ucts.com)

5 This Cat­nip Spray from Me­ow­i­juana is so much eas­ier than tra­di­tional cat­nip! My cats, Jack and Jamie, get bored with their old cat­nip toys when the ‘nip in­side dries up. This spray gives a fresh boost to their favourite stuff. With just one spritz, my cats were fight­ing over all the old toys like a cou­ple of mon­keys!— Clara ($14, me­ow­i­juana.com)

6 Some­times brooms just don’t cut it! When cat hair seems to be ab­so­lutely ev­ery­where, I reach for the Miele Clas­sic C1 Cat & Dog vac­uum. The Ac­tive AirClean fil­tra­tion sys­tem helps con­trol odour and it’s su­per quiet so it won’t scare the cats! —C0n­nie ($600, MieleUsa.com)

7 Feel great about giv­ing your cats Fruita­bles Wildly Nat­u­ral salmon cat treats. Made of nat­u­ral, lim­ited in­gre­di­ents, your cat will go crazy for the flavour of wild-caught salmon. And you’ll love that they con­tain no wheat, soy or corn!— Jen­nifer (From $3, fruita­ble­spet­food.com)

8 I al­ways felt guilty when I had to put the lit­ter, bag and all, into the garbage af­ter scoop­ing up af­ter my fam­ily’s two cats. So when I found BioDOGrad­able Bags’ Com­postable Cat Lit­ter Bags, scoop­ing the lit­ter five times a week got a bit eas­ier! The bags are a per­fect size for scoop­ing into, and I can put the bag right into my com­post bin to biode­grade—guilt free!

—Mariah ($15, biodegrad­able­dog­bags.com) 9 My two cats love to sleep, scratch, and share the Sim­ple Sleeper from Molly and Friends. This two-tier tree fea­tures both a flat sur­face bed mounted on a sisal pole (per­fect for scratch­ing), and a lower cozy cra­dle. With a va­ri­ety of car­pet colours avail­able, it’s sure to match any dé­cor!— Kevin ($99, Mol­lyAndFriends.com)

10 Ever won­der what your kitty is do­ing while you’re at work or out of town? With Pet-Peeps’ In­door PetCam Pro, you can check out what your cats are up to and even talk to them—this HD cam­era has a built-in speaker and mic, too! Did your cat do some­thing su­per-cute or funny while no­body was home? It has an SD card slot as well, so you can record your cat’s shenani­gans and watch it back.— Ce­line ($150, pet-peeps.com)

11 My cat Grace has a ten­dency to be quite picky; not true with Purebites—she LOVES th­ese treats! Made with pro­tein sourced from the US and New Zealand, I feel great about giv­ing Grace her favourite treats. I’ve even used them to help her learn to trust new peo­ple. With Purebites on hand, she no longer runs and hides the mo­ment some­one new walks in the house! Highly rec­om­mended.— Jac­que­line (From $3, purebites.com)
