What’s the Deal with Cat Tunnels?

Cats like places, that they can crawl through and hide in when they sleep. If you have an indoor cat, you have probably noticed that they sometimes disappear for hours only to re-emerge when you least expect it. This is because cats like to find private little places where they can curl up and go to sleep undisturbed. When no place is provided, they will sleep on the chairs under the kitchen table and even under beds. 

Cat tunnels can provide your cat would just such a place, without them mysteriously disappearing. Your cat may sometimes just crawl through it playfully, but they can provide your feline family member with a private comfortable place to sleep that does not leave you wondering where they are.  

Cats can sleep just about any place and if you provide a comfortable private place for them to sleep, they will often take advantage of it. The fact that cat tunnels come in a variety of shapes and sizes and lengths makes them even more attractive to both cats and cat owners alike. 

What’s the Deal with CBD Pet Treats?

Cannabidiol, more commonly marketed under the shorthand abbreviation of CBD, is an oil derived from hemp. CBD is known to offer several health benefits, including a boost to the immune system and improve the body’s ability to withstand or prevent: 

  • Arthritis and joint pain 
  • Anxiety 
  • Digestive trouble 
  • Seizure, epilepsy and other neurological ailments 
  • Blood disorders 
  • Cancer and tumors 

While CBD has become popular due to its many health benefits, the market has grown large enough to reach the pet goods industry. While CBD offers many of the aforementioned benefits, it does undergo some degree of change when baked into pet treats. Most pet treats contain between 3% to 6% CBD per amount of hemp oil involved. Furthermore, some treats only use hemp powder. 
If you want to maximize the benefits of CBD in your pet, consider buying a quality CBD oil by itself and add that to your pet’s food, waiting a few minutes for the food to absorb its properties. 

What’s the Deal With Nail Trimmers For Pets?

Trimming an animal’s nails are just as important as trimming your own. By not trimming your pet’s nails regularly, they will begin to grow into the pads. Their nails will start splitting breaking off. They may also become infected. Improper nail upkeep can also make your pet irritable and maybe even aggressive, due to being in pain. Using the proper nail trimmer for your pet is especially important. If you cut your pet’s nails too short, it can cause severe bleeding, which will lead you on a trip to the vet. There are many different types of nail trimmers on the market that are made specifically for animals. Guillotine Clippers are best for small animals. These clippers, when used correctly, will cut the end of the nail right off. For larger animals, scissor clippers are best to use. Most of the scissor trimmers have a built-in guard to keep you from going up too far. One of the most essential factors to pay attention to when buying trimmers is the quality and cut of the blade.
