 Join the Michigan Humane Society for Meet Your Best Friend at the Market, presented by Purina. This event is concurrent with Eastern Market’s Music Festival.

WHEN: Sunday, July 22, 2018, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
WHERE: In front of Eastern Market’s Shed 5, Russell Street, Detroit, MI 48207

The Michigan Humane Society believes pets are family. That is why it hosts adoption events at popular family attractions. Now in its fifth year, this partnership joins two of Detroit’s venerable institutions with a combined history spanning almost 270 years. It also marks the first time this event will be branded as Meet Your Best Friend at the Market.

Summer is also a great time to adopt an animal. The reason is families often have more time to train and socialize new pets. It is also easier to house train a puppy when it’s warm. This is because, like us, pets often don’t want to go outside during Michigan’s cold winters.
 Meet Your Best Friend at the Market is presented by Purina.

Letting it ALL hang out!

Hi my furry and human furiends! It has been hotter than you-know-what here in Michigan (and throughout the WORLD), that it has gotten ridiculous! All any of us with fur can do is just do our best to keep cool!!!

For me, that involves airing out my ample "belleh"!

Mom is counting the days til Fall, are you anxiously awaiting Fall as well? What's YOUR favorite way to keep cool?

Love, Cody

Catty Whack Electronic Sound and Feather Action Cat Toy from OurPets® !

Hi every furry and human! Today it is me, Cody at the keyboard.  I decided that I do much better reviews than Mom does, so today, I am going to be the one to share the Catty Whack Electronic Sound and Feather Action Cat Toy from OurPets® with you!

You have heard Mom and I say many times that I am a mancat who LOVES nothing more than hunting his prey. I am not always a fan of boxes or things that are confining for me, but give me a good darting mouse, or a feathery darting toy and I am one happy kitty!

The OurPets® Catty Whack is an unpredictable game of hide & seek which piques my interest and is certain to pique the interest of your kitty!! While it is specifically designed to encourage independent play for cats of all ages, I am going to say again what I have said MANY, MANY times, that I think multi-kitty households will love this as well! That being said, I AM an "only" kitty and while I prefer to play with my Mom or my Sheltie brother, there ARE times that I enjoy playing by myself. Yesterday was one of those times! Mom gave me my lunch and told me she had a surprise for me and I marched right in! When Mom turned the button on (after putting in the 4 C batteries that are not included), I got ready to pounce!!

 Mom found  the original electronic RealMouse sound  to be a teeny tiny bit annoying on this toy, but not me!! The RealMouse sound and the erratic movement of the feather is what lured me in! I do have a question though, the little feathery wand thingy that randomly dashes and darts in and out of the six mouse holes is NOT a, why does it have a RealMouse sound? (discuss amongst yourselves, that is pretty much a rhetorical question that doesn't require an answer. As they say, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it", and as you can see in the video below I LOVE THIS TOY!! )

I might be 11 years old and I often have a rather "lazy" style of play, but you can't beat my paw dexterity!!! 

 On the top of the Catty Whack, there is a carpeted scratching area, which many cats find to be enticing!!! So far, I haven't used it to scratch, but I just might!

   I used this toy in Mom's "office" on the floor and these photos were taken when Mom put the Catty Whack on her bed. You can't see in these photos, but the bottom of the toy has non-skid rubber feet, which will keep the toy from sliding while kitties play!!!

 There is also an auto-shut off feature on the button you see above on the left side of the Catty Whack.  There is a replacement feather prey wand included.  I think that providing a replacement wand is a great idea because Mom noticed when I played with mine (and we noticed the same thing  on some videos we were watching), that kitties try to immediately chew the wand which is normal because kitties are trying to catch their prey, but, the feathery wand is rather small, and if it breaks off it is concerning to Mom. The replacement in our box was actually the TIP of the wand with the feather, which is quite small. A suggestion would be to provide a long wand with the tip already attached as an extra,  not just the small feathery part, because it makes someone nervous that the tiny feathery part could come off.  Because of that, Mom won't let me play with this toy unsupervised, and because of that Mom is giving this a 3 out of 4 paws rating, while I rate it 4 PAWS UP.

I absolutely LOVE the Catty Whack Electronic Sound and Feather Action Cat Toy from OurPets® and I am certain that you will too!!!!!  What does Mom know, she ISN'T a cat (thank COD FOR US CATS),  and she will not be playing with the toy, I am the one who is playing with it and I LOVE IT!). 

 Where will the feather wand pop out next?  I don't know and you won't know either unless you pawchase this great toy!  Waiting to see where the feather wand pops out next is half of the fun!! Now, if you will excuse me, I have some waiting to do!!!!!  Til the next time!!!!! Love,  Cody
