Pets have made the news these last few weeks due to the hurricanes and irresponsible owners. My cats are my family. You better believe I’d risk my own life for those bundles of fur. I could rant for hours on the responsibility of owning a pet and how some people shouldn’t own them. Instead of ranting, I thought would share some products that make being a pet parent easier.
We recently purchased the Neater Feeder from Amazon, and I will be purchasing more. This product is awesome for both cats and dogs. My cats are messy eaters, and the mess is irritating at times. This feeder actually keeps the mess contained. No more water on the floor! All eleven of my cats approve of this product. If you own multiple cats, you know that it is difficult to get all of them to agree on something. I really can’t praise this product enough, because it has made a huge difference in our home.
We have owned a variety of litter boxes over the years. We purchased the giant pan from Petco, and I’ve been very pleased. It’s a great pan for a multiple cat household. Although you can see the litter, this box is larger and deeper than your typical box. I know odor is always a concern, but with the right litter, you won’t have a problem. It also has a place for your scoop, which is a nice feature. This product more durable in comparison to some of the boxes we’ve seen or purchased previously.
Oh how I love our Nest Cams. We purchased these for security purposes and monitoring the cats. You can actually speak through the camera and app. No complaints regarding the app. When we are on vacation, I can check on the cats and say hello to them. It’s funny to watch their faces when they hear Ryan or myself talking. These cameras are very easy to get going. Ryan really likes the visibility at night with these too. The camera that came with our security system isn’t very good at night. As of right now, we only have the indoor cameras. We will have outdoor cameras by Christmas is what I was told. Ryan will write an entire post dedicated to security in the future.
All of these products can be purchased online or at select retailers. You can find the litter box and feeder at Petco, Amazon, and more. I believe we purchased our cameras from Best Buy. I hope you find our review of these products helpful. I’ll leave you with a few pictures of our babies.
I am ready for fall, especially with the cooler temperatures in Georgia this week. I thought I’d highlight a few of my favorite fall items.
Ryan and I love garden flags. We actually have an entire Peanuts collection of flags that we rotate throughout the year. I recently purchased this new flag, because I thought it was adorable. It’s bright and perfect for welcoming fall. We purchase a majority of our flags from Seasons Flags. Not only are the flags reasonably price, but this retailer offers free shipping. If you are looking for a way to add some color to your garden, I highly recommend adding a flag or two.
Nothing says fall like a pumpkin. Michaels has a great selection of craft pumpkins for decorating around the house, creating centerpieces, and more. I have over a dozen of these pumpkins around our house. Cream, black, orange, and even blue are just a few colors options. They also come in a variety of sizes. These pumpkins are super easy to work with if you decide to carve a message or design on the front. You can also stop by your local store, and they offer such services. Lastly, these are super affordable, and you can probably find a coupon on the Michaels app.
I just purchased the Ronan throw from Pottery Barn over the weekend. These are very soft and affordable. I compared the price to one similar at Home Goods, and it was only a $5 difference. The one at Home Goods was also scratchy, which I didn’t like. The throw is also reversible. I bought the gray one to match our living room and existing fall pillows. It was exactly what I was looking for.
You can find all of these great products online at Pottery Barn, Seasonsflags.com, and Michaels. Happy shopping!
Did you see the big reveal this week? If not, check out my finished craft room, because I think it’s pretty awesome. With that in mind, I wanted to share three items from that space.
Can you have too many lanterns? I don’t think so! I probably have one for each room in our house, because they are so awesome. The Malta collection at Pottery Barn is perfect for seasonal decorating, adding coastal flair, or creating a unique display. I really don’t know how to best describe my love for lanterns. They really are the perfect accessory. You can do so many different things with them, and I think part of my love for them is due to their versatility. If you all are interested, I’ll create a tutorial on how to decorate with lanterns this fall/holiday season.
When I was designing my craft room, I knew I wanted one of these bungee chairs. They are pleasing to the eye, affordable, and really comfortable. I started out with one in my office and decided to get another one. They also roll really well on my tile floor. Container Store has several color options for your space. Ryan actually just got a red one without arms for his office. Simply, it’s a great chair.
I’m not sure how my love for Dash & Albert rugs started. I must have seen one in a magazine or something. I remember looking at a collection of them while in Napa many years ago in this little décor boutique. I received my first one as a Christmas gift from one of my sisters. Yes, I ask for rugs for Christmas. Rugs aren’t even the weirdest thing I ask for…tile probably is. Anyway, there are many design and color options available to fit your space. I don’t have a local retailer that stocks them, but you might have one near you. My favorite design must be the herringbone, because I keep purchasing that particular one. I’ve got a striped one in my spare room too. My dad actually gave me that one. These rugs are also easy to vacuum and spot clean. I’ll be honest though, my cats have not tested these rugs. I keep these away from them, because I don’t even want to deal with it. Some items I just want to enjoy without the approval of my cats.
As always, you can visit the retailers of these products or order online. I’m taking a break next week, but I’ll be back soon enough. I’ll have a new travel post, so stay tuned.
