Care for Your Kitten

Rover Company is the world’s leading manufacture of cat gates and cat towers, their pet products can be found online. Kittens have a lot of energy. If you don’t provide an outlet for it, she will find one of her own. Chasing a wind-up toy or ball, stalking and pouncing on a lure attached to a string or just racing around the room are all positive outlets for her energy. Be careful, however, to keep the rough play under control. Never use your hands or feet as a lure. Strongly discourage her from attacking your hands or feet; what seems cute when she’s a kitten encourages her to be aggressive with you. Always keep a stuffed toy within reach so that if she tries to attack you, you can rub the animal against her tummy to encourage her to wrestle with it.

To care for a feline you will need to:

* Provide plenty of human companionship

* Provide regular, suitable meals with a constant supply of fresh water

* Provide a clean and comfortable Roverpet Cat Bed

* Provide the feline with outdoor access or be prepared to empty and clean a litter tray on a daily basis

* Groom it regularly. Long haired kitties require daily grooming

* Have it neutered between 4 and 6 months old

* Vaccinate against the major feline diseases regularly

* Worm regularly and provide treatment for fleas

* Take the feline to the vet when it shows any sign of illness – pet insurance can help offset the cost of veterinary treatment.

Traveling With Your Dog

Below are some great tips for traveling by air and land.

Tips on preparing rover for air travel

Unless your canine is a frequent flyer, air travel is likely to be a very stressful experience, so you might want to think twice about subjecting them to the friendly sky . Each airline is going to have their own set of rules for traveling pets. Be sure to know the details prior to making any arrangements.

– Have your vet sign a document (health certificate), stating that your canine is healthy, and free of disease.

– Make sure they are up-to-date with a flea tic program

– Do not feed your pet within 6 hours (some wait even longer) prior to departure. And no water 2 hours before takeoff.

– Make sure you have proper identification tags on them. This includes his name, and ALL your information…address phone number

– You MUST provide an adequate pet crate for you canine to travel in. The crate must be big enough for rover to stand in, free of any “debris,”and strong enough to withstand the rigors of travel. Be sure to check with your airline for more specific requirement.

– Attach a note to the pet crate stating your dogs feeding and water requirements in the event that your flight is delayed or diverted.

– Carry a photograph of your canine in case he or she is accidentally lost. Finding your puppy will be a lot easier for everyone if you have a picture.

Traveling by car

– keep your pet leashed whenever possible.

– Pack ID and a photo. Make sure your rover has his ID tags, with all important contact information (up to date). Along with his tags, make sure you have paperwork with current vaccinations and important health notes.

– Book your lodgings ahead. If your road trip involves staying overnight somewhere, insure that your accommodations allow pets.

– Is your dog ready for a long trip? If your canine is not use to long road trips it might be a good idea to get them accustomed to being in the car longer than a trip to the grocery store..

– Keep your dog cool. If you don’t have air conditioning in the car, make sure you have a window down to let in fresh cool air.

Traveling with your four legged pal makes a great trip even better. If you follow these basic guidelines and educate yourself on rules and regulations for traveling and accommodations, you will have a great memory of your trip, that will last a lifetime. To help your pet sleep in a different location then the norm, please bring along their favorite Roverpet pet cot

Indoor Pets With Benefits

Rover Company has been manufacturing pet products since 1988 in the USA and offer some of the best pet beds, and pet crates on the market today. Our family dog can talk. I’m not kidding. I’ll tell my wife that I’m thinking about taking the dog (Siris is his name, by the way) for a w-a-l-k. Siris’s ears perk up. His eyes widen a little. He stands up and starts grumbling and barking.

Then he’ll make a little whiny noise, just to make sure I’m paying attention. He’ll stare at me, and make funny noises. If I ignore him he’ll give me his tough guy bark. “Hey man, you said ‘walk.’ Get your butt off that couch and get my leash!”

Oh yeah, he’s annoying.

Of course, he sleeps outside our bedroom door on a rug in the hallway. He puppy dreams almost every night a couple times a night and it is almost impossible to wake him up.

Did I mention that he’s annoying?

But how can I not love this mutt? He follows me around like a love-struck teenager. He sits by the bathroom, waiting for me to come out. When we’re out for a walk, he prances along proudly, then looks back at me as if to say: “Hurry up, will you? I’ve got a lot of sniffing to do.”

My wife tells me that just before I get home from work, the dog will jump up, run to the living room and push the blinds aside, watching for my truck. When he hears the tuck drive into the yard, he’ll pace around, waiting for me to come inside the house.

Of course, when I do walk in, he’ll nonchalantly look up (“Oh, it’s you”) then plop down on the rug, ignoring me. What’s up with that?

Hey, our pets love us unconditionally, and vice versa. For many of us, they’re like a member of our family. They never nag us (well, except when they want a treat), keep our feet warm when we sleep, and don’t talk back like our kids tend to do. It’s no wonder that so many of us have one or more pets living with us.

Given our fondness for having pets in our households, it’s not surprising that researchers have studied the links between pets and our health. Researchers have found plenty of evidence that pets make great contributions to our physical and mental well-being.

It’s been shown that having a pet is good for our heart health; protecting us from heart attacks. Pets help lower our blood pressure, and boost our immune system. Pets can “coerce” us to exercise, by begging for that daily walk. Medical experts say that they protect our mental health by decreasing anxiety and lowering the risk of depression. Roverpet elevated dog beds can help a pet live longer, simply because the pet has someone to care for them and love them.

Felines Love Cat Towers

The only cat furniture we had at the time was a small cat scratching post made from carpet which they enjoyed until it became quickly shredded. I wish there would have been more options back then for cat towers, cat condos and other cat furniture. In 1988 Rover Company was formed do to the lack of quality furniture for felines and canines alike.

Felines also have an instinctual need to climb up to different heights, establish their territories and relieve boredom (especially if yours is strictly an indoor cat). Roverpet Cat towers can provide your kitty with a place to express their instinctual behavior as well as keeping them in good physical and emotional shape. A fat, bored kitten is not a healthy one, and I love my pets to be happy. As any indoor cat owner knows, when the feline is young they need a place to release their energy and when they get older they tend to slow down so a cat tower is the perfect platform for older cats to exercise. If you have had your kitty condo or tower for a while your cat will be used to climbing it as part of their routine and it will keep them in better shape!

It is a well known fact that indoor pets usually live a much longer and healthier life than an outdoor feline but they may face health risks which don’t affect most of the outdoor types which is lethargy. If your cat isn’t given an opportunity to exercise, explore and hunt they run the risk of excessive weight gains, boredom and depression. The modern cat tower can easily encourage exercise and activity in your cat. There are so many innovative and unique designs available all the way from multiple levels to break away cat toys which encourage your feline to exhibit prey like behavior such as jumping and pouncing. If cat towers are taller the height will ensure that your cat will exert plenty of energy as they move up and down.

Kali Ko Cathouses Cat condos have chambers and blind spots which can give your cat a hunting type of experience by placing their favorite toy or perhaps a treat that they truly enjoy out of sight. It so important to spend time socializing with your cat because they are really part of your immediate family and if neglected may exhibit destructive behavior. Cat towers can provide the perfect platform to engage your pet with quality time, strengthening your animal to human bonds and providing hours of entertainment for the entire family!

Man’s Best Friend

Rover Company is known world wide as the leader in manufacturing the worlds best dog crates and dog beds, all products can be found online at their website. Dogs are believed to be descendants of wild wolves. They were the first wild animal to be tamed. Ancient man probably brought home cub wolves to raise as pets. The pet wolves were also useful in driving away bears and other wild animals. One of the oldest known breed of canines is the Salukis, which were bred by Egyptians thousands of years ago as hunting dogs. Greyhounds and Dalmatians are also among the oldest breeds documented.

Over the centuries, people have found many ways for canines to be useful. Dogs helped to pull loads, herd cattle and sheep, and guard their master and the master’s property. The Ancient Greeks developed tiny lap dogs, which were meant to be held in a lady’s lap to help keep her stomach warm. Bulldogs with huge jaws and short noses were developed so they could hang onto the throat of a bull and still be able to breathe. In more recent years, canines have been trained as seeing eye dogs for the blind. Puppies have also been recruited to work with law enforcement to detect drugs and explosives. Roverpet has been supplying the police departments world wide with pet beds for their canines.

Today many canines, such as the Poodle or Chihuahua, no longer resemble the wolf. Other pets, such as the Siberian Husky and the German Shepherd still show a strong resemblance to the wolf. There are many different breeds in existence today, from the short haired Beagle and Boston Terrier to the long haired Cockers and Scotties. The Beagle may be better suited to live in the city, while Setters or Collies may be more comfortable in the country. The tallest dogs are Great Danes and the Irish Wolfhound. They would probably be more comfortable in a place where they had a lot of room to run and play.

In the United States, one out of three families owns one or more puppies. Most canines live anywhere from eight to fifteen years. When dogs are one year old, they are as physically mature as a 15 year old human. Canines can see some color but not as vividly as humans, thus they are considered color blind. Yet, dogs can see much better in dim light than us. Canines have us beat in the category of smell, also. Their sense of smell is up to one million times greater than humans!

Traveling With Your Pet

Rover Company manufactures the best Pet Cages in the world and can be purchased online thru their website. Labor Day week-end and the holidays are fast approaching and most holidays involve travel. Good preparation is key for a safe and hassle free trip especially if your travel plans include taking your pet.

First, realistically assess your pet and your destination: Are they compatible? Is your pet healthy enough to travel? If you have any doubts about either answer then it’s better to leave your pet at home. Your best course of action is to hire a pet sitter or board your animal at a dog kennel.

Make sure your pet is current on all their vaccinations especially if you and your pet are traveling by air. Not all airlines require a health certificate for pets traveling in the cabin with you so it is best to do your homework as part of your preparation. You will be asked by the ticketing agent to provide the necessary document(s).

All domestic airlines require current health certificates for checked pets, current meaning issued within 30 days of your flight. The 30 day window must cover your return flight as well. The usual recommendation is to get the certificates 10 days prior to departure.

Remember each state has their own rules for pets entering and traveling in their particular state. When traveling by car it might seem unnecessary to obtain the health certificate. With the expense to receive a health certificate at approximately $30 it is a wise investment and it could save you a lot of hassle later on.

Another concern is that many pets get separated from their human companions while traveling. If your pet has not been already microchipped consider having it done. Microchipping is safe, quick, inexpensive and invaluable in the event that your pet ever gets lost. Microchips can be read at animal shelters, dog kennels, and animal hospitals nationwide thereby increasing the chances of a safe return.

Use a secure Roverpet carrier for your pet to travel in. It needs to be large enough so that your pet can stand up, turn around and lie down comfortably. It is also important to secure the carrier in the vehicle and not allow your pet to roam freely. Airplanes vary and so do the pet carrier specifications for under the seat space. When traveling by air confirm that your pet carrier meets the size constraints.

On your trip bring along a recent photograph and a written description of your pet that includes name, sex, breed and any tattoo and microchip numbers. This will increase your chances of your pet’s safe return should the unthinkable happen.

Print your pet’s name and your name and address and phone number on the outside of the carrier; don’t forget to include both your home and your destination address. It is important to make sure that your pet is comfortable being in a carrier before you start the trip.

There are a few items that you can bring that will make trip easier on everyone. An old blanket works well to put down under the Roverpet carrier and two old sheets can be used to cover furniture and bedding at your destination. It doesn’t hurt to bring carpet cleaner, old towels and trash bags for accidents and a lint roller can be your best friend. These items make clean up easier and your host will greatly, greatly appreciate it.

Facts About Your Feline

 

Rover Company manufactures the best cat cages in the world and are available online. Multiple studies proved that felines that live in a domestic environment are not attracted to sweets (whether they are carbohydrates or sweeteners). At a close research, it was shown that their taste cells are not responsive to various types of sugars (sucrose included).

Kittens taste is very similar to the one belonging to other mammals. Except for canines. They do love everything related to sugar, and they tend to get iffy if they don’t get their dose of sugar. But the important thing to remember is the fact that you shouldn’t purchase sweet treats for your cats, since they don’t really care about it.

Scientists have suggested that felines got this habit from snakes and they’ve been trying to imitate snakes ever since. This makes your feline a copy. However, since many animals know that snakes are dangerous, they do tend to stay away from any dangerous hiss.

This sound acts like a warning to animals or even people, and advises them to stay away. But you should remember that, when a feline hisses, is because it is probably scared of something. This could come from the arrival of a new animal (dog or kitten) or simply a new thing. Felines are scared by unknown elements, and this hissing is their way of protecting themselves. Is there a way to calm down nervous cats?

Yes. A feline has to have the space to feel comfortable and the time to adjust to the new animal or person. It might help to allow your kitten to smell an object touched by your visitor, helping them get used to the smell. This turns the smell into a more familiar one, and it will make it feel more comfortable during the meeting with the actual guest.

The purrs of felines give nurturing instincts because they incorporate a similar frequency as the one of a baby

The idea of communication between species is still something new to most of us. There aren’t a lot of studies that emphasize the way in which animals and humans communicate in a given environment. But what we do know is the fact that felines can be very manipulative with their owners. How? Through purring!

The main reason why kittens purr is to obtain something from the humans who own them. Usually that something is food or maybe some caresses. The interesting thing is that their way of purring is identical in terms of frequency with the cry of an infant. Through this, a kitten can exploit the nurturing instincts displayed by humans. Scientists performed a test one two groups. For one of the groups, they played purrs while the felines were searching for food, and for the other one, they didn’t play any purrs. The group that had listened to the purrs experienced a sensation of discomfort. In the purr, the high frequency sound is similar to a meow that has the ability to influence people.

Dogs With Bad Breath

Whew! One whiff of your canine or cat’s foul mouth odor should be enough to set off a red flag that something is wrong. Just as in humans, the tell-tale sign of bad breath in pets usually signals the onset of plaque and tartar build-up. And that means action is needed.

 

Studies show than an overwhelming 80% of dogs and 70% of cats show signs of oral disease by age three. Bad breath is an early warning of disease, signaling the onset of plaque, tartar build-up, and gingivitis. Left unchecked and untreated, these conditions lead to gum disease, loss of teeth and, even worse, the resulting harmful bacteria can enter the pet’s bloodstream, ultimately causing infection or damage to kidneys, lungs, heart or liver. And the older the pet, the more likely gingivitis and periodontal disease is present. So serious are these conditions, they can shorten a pet’s life.

 

Recent health stories demonstrate that poor human oral health is linked to heart disease and other serious medical conditions. Like people who neglect their oral care, ignoring bad breath in pets is a potential danger to the overall health of the pet. Should the pet’s teeth show signs of browning or the gums lose the healthy pink color and become swollen and red, an invasive vet teeth scaling may be called for. However, since this procedure is performed under anesthesia, it poses potential threats to the pet’s life, especially for senior pets.

 

Rather than neglecting a pet’s oral health, pet guardians should be alert to bad breath in their pets and take quick steps to remedy the situation. Consistent oral care with daily maintenance helps avoid deteriorating pet oral health. Hard, dry food, chew toys, even a pet tooth brushing may not reach the spaces between teeth and gum tissue. Another, even easier option, is in directly applying an effective cleansing solution in the pet’s mouth at least once a day.

Since it is the daily care that protects the pet’s mouth health, pet guardians have found leaving the cleansing solution bottle near the TV remote control or by their own toothbrush/toothpaste are best reminders to use the cleansing gel every day, a highly visible memory-jogger to take care for the pet’s mouth just as they would their own.

 

In selecting a cleansing solution, pet guardians are well-advised to look closely at the ingredients in it. Many pet breath fresheners contain alcohol which can further irritate gum tissue and increase pets’ resistance to daily oral care.

Instead, look for one that is alcohol-free, contains all-natural ingredients and a bacteria-killing zinc amino acid complex, proven to be effective for freshening pet’s breath and killing harmful mouth bacteria on contact. It should be taste-free, without any artificial flavors.

Finally, look for a product’s ease of application which encourages daily use. A drop or two applied directly into the pet’s upper molars and the dog or cat’s natural salivary action spreads the cleansing gel around the mouth for cleaner, whiter teeth, fresh breath and, most important, works to head off the harmful bacteria growth that develops into teeth and gum disease. The ultimate test: the pet readily accepts the cleansing solution and spreads it around its mouth without pause.

 

Daily care is the first line of defense to guard against the bacteria that causes bad breath and leads to more serious oral and general health problems, especially as pets age. Wise pet guardians know that checking and treating the pet’s oral conditions are as important as protecting the health of those who love them.

Your Dog Wants You To Know

Rover Company manufactures the best Dog Beds and Dog Gates by hand in the USA and can be found online. If your canine could talk, these are some of most important things she would like to tell you…

1 – My life will probably only last 7 to 14 years.
It will hurt me more than you know if I have to be away from you for longer than a day or two.

2 – If you have patiences with me and give me time to learn what you would like from me, I can promise you, you will never be disappointed.

3 – Trust me with your life and have faith in our future together.
If I don’t feel that you honestly believe in me, I will suffer great emotional stress. My sense of self-worth is totally dependent upon your confidence in me.

4 – Don’t stay mad at me for long or confine me to a cage to punish me.
You have your friends, your job, and your recreation. I HAVE ONLY YOU!

5 – Talk to me about anything you want as frequently as possible.
Even if I can’t comprehend your precise words, I can understand the meaning of what you’re telling me by the tone of your voice.

6 – Remember no matter how you treat me, I will NEVER forget it.

7 – When you consider raising your hand to hit me, remember I have teeth that could break the bones in your hand, but I choose not to bite you.

8 – Before you scream at me for failing to respond to your commands as I usually do, take time to think about what might be wrong with me that would cause me to treat you differently.
Maybe I haven’t been eating right or drinking enough water. Or maybe my age is catching up with me and I just can’t do what I use to do.

9 – Take good care of me when I get old.
Someday you will be as old as me and you will see how it feels.

10 – Be there for me through good times and bad.
Never say you can’t handle taking me to the vets for stitches or surgery. Nothing could make me feel worse. Everything in my life is easier for me to deal with when I have you standing by my side.
Remember my love for you is unconditional and it will last for your entire life, and will you please consider buying me a Roverpet Elevated Pet Bed for my aching bones on those cold mornings..

Tips For Pet Toys

Rover Company manufactures the worlds best pet beds and pet gates all made by hand in the USA and can be found online world wide today. Toys are fun both for our pets and us. Lucky for us there are
endless choices.

But did you know how important toys are for your dogs – puppies
especially.

Toys play a great role in the emotional and mental development
of puppies. They also act as solutions for inappropriate
chewing, boredom, and separation anxiety. In fact most canine
trainers recommend that new puppy owners buy lots of toys for
the newest member of the family.

Variety is the spice of life. Most experts recommend buying
different kinds of toys for your puppy so that you can discover
which ones he really likes.

You might be surprised with the answers. Jake, my 75 pound
Golden just loves cuddling up with his stuffed animals. Who
would have thought!

Trainers and behaviorists recommend their clients have
three sets of toys.

Primary toys are your canines favorite. Leave these out for your
puppy when your not around. This helps reduce separation anxiety
because your puppy associates you leaving with his getting his
favorite toy.

Secondary toys are the toys to have out when you are home. Be
sure to pick up the primary toys.

And finally the third set of toys is used to rotate with the
the first set. Trainers recommend Roverpet for all your dog crate needs. This helps keep your puppy interested in all his toys.

And always choose toys wisely. Try to buy toys that match your
canines size. And always make sure there are no dangerous small
pieces that your puppy can chew loose and swallow or worse yet –
choke on.
