Cat Backpackvia

Cat Backpack

Dog owners hog all the fun of taking their pets on a walk. With a cat backpack, feline fans can enjoy walks too.

Cats tend to prefer carriers that give them a place to hide, so this mesh cat backpack is better than the kind with a transparent front. It’s also useful for traveling and trips to the vet since backpacks are easier to carry than traditional handheld carriers.

Do you know someone whose cat wakes them at the crack of dawn? My cat’s breakfast tantrums began earlier and earlier until I purchased a smart pet feeder. Now she leaves me alone in the morning, and I can keep tabs on her when I’m gone with the built-in voice and video feature.

A smart feeder is a great gift idea for cat lovers since many people don’t splurge on themselves.

Cats like music but their tastes are different from ours. David Teie’s Music for Cats is composed specifically for felines.

With chirping birds, purring cats and other familiar sounds, the songs on this album help cats relax, play and more. It’s worth a listen, and the science behind the music is worth a read.
