The Cat Scratching Board is brilliant! Cats can prefer different surfaces for scratching—fabric, cardboard, sisal, carpet, and wood. The can also prefer different orientations—angled, upright, or horizontal. The best way to keep them from scratching inappropriate things is to provide options they like. Wood cat scratchers are much harder to find, so this is great. It also looks wide & long enough to really make a cat happy and you can have it at an angle, flat, or upright.
The Catwheel looks like so much fun for the right cat. You may have seen the video of the cat wheel someone made for their bengal kitties? This one from Catswall is pretty nice looking! I know a certain rotund cat of ours who could definitely benefit from a catwheel, if we could keep him from just lying down on it.
Margaret Page and her cat Maya were found alive in the Gila National Forest in New Mexico. They’d been missing for 3 1/2 weeks. Page (who has a history of mental illness) and her cat sheltered together in her sleeping bag in below freezing temperatures. Maya the cat stayed with Page the whole time and was in better shape than the woman when found. Page had run out of food, but the cat apparently hunted for herself.
