Pet Accessories: Geeking Out With Your Best Friend

frodo

I'll level with you: it's been a long time since I've owned a pet.  "My cat" actually lives with my mother, and has since I went off to college; after that I didn't have the heart to uproot her.  Still, I'd feel weird getting another animal while "my cat" is still out there. All this to say, when I last dealt in animal accessories, I felt extra special that my cat had a purple collar instead of a standard red or blue one.  Well, times, they have a-changed.  Just as it's now way easier to find … [Read more...]

Custom Search Wishlist For Dating Sites: Pet Allergies

I love you, but your cat makes me sick.

A recent client shot me an email this morning, feeling dismayed. You see, he has a severe allergy to cats, and all the women he was finding interesting on Match.com had furry children of the feline variety. And he's not alone. According to the American College of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology, 1 out of 10 people is allergic to animals. The number could be as high as 30% in people with asthma. While some folks have mild allergies and could co-habitate with a furry creature provided there … [Read more...]

You’re Gonna Be Single AND Your Cat Will Eat Your Dead Body

I'll be the first to admit that I love my cats.  They're my little furry children.  I can't imagine life without them and it pains me to leave them when I travel.   I'm one cat short of Crazy Cat Lady status, and I'm okay with that. While searching for matches for one of my Gold clients, I came across the profile of a girl who was really into her pets.  In fact, she stated in no uncertain terms that her cat was her best friend and wayyyyyy better than any of her people friends. Of course, … [Read more...]

No more feline typing!

For geeks with cats, this is probably the coolest thing I've seen since the Death Star litterbox. If I had a desk, I would totally buy one of these. The Kit In Box is like an inbox for your cat! (So punny!) So instead of having the cat laying on the keyboard, over your arms, etc etc, you can give him his very own cozy bed, clamped to the side of your desk, where he can watch everything in comfort. The only problem I can see is the fact that most cats, when given a cat bed, will not … [Read more...]

You will be furminated!

Geek Friends, I know my usual topics are dating and D&D, but I just had to share with you this totally awesome product that I bought a few months ago and have been worshiping ever since. This, my friends, is the Furminator. It is the BEST brush you will ever own for your pet. It comes in sizes ranging from small (cats) to extra large (horse). Pick the size that best suits your fur baby. I have two cats, DJ and Mr. P, who will gladly coat my beautiful purple Salvation Army couch in … [Read more...]

The Death Star

For those geeks with cats, I can say that this item is probably the best $300 I have spent in my entire life: I call it the Death Star. You can watch it in action at www.litter-robot.com. The cats climb inside, do their business, and after 7 minutes, the Death Star rotates, sifts through the litter, lets the clumps fall through the waste ports (so sci-fi!!) into the base at the bottom, where they are collected into a garbage bag for later disposal. You never scoop litter again, you just … [Read more...]
