7 Things Every Cat Parent Should Have To Make Life Purr-Fect
Lexi Hammond

As a cat parent, you want your cats to live their best, happiest life. One day my cats will have a nice catio built onto our house for them to enjoy, but until then, I have to spoil them in less expensive ways.

Whenever I go to the pet aisle in any store, I get excited to find things my cats would like. I have bought a variety of different things for cats, but these products are things that you will always find at my house.

1. Catnip Mist

I have always bought SmartyKat Catnip Mist for my cats because it stimulates them and gets them really excited to play. The smell of the spray attracts them to toys and they love it.

2. Kitty Ear Wipes

These deodorizer wipes from Petkin keep my cats' ears super clean. These aloe-infused wipes remove dirt, odor and wax, and they are eco-friendly. I used to buy the ear swabs from the same company, but my cats definitely prefer the wipes, and it makes it so much easier to get their ears clean.

3. Dental Treats

Although these treats aren't recommended for kittens, my older cat loves them. They have a porous texture that cleans plaque off the teeth. Instead of giving these treats to my kitten, I clean her teeth with a q tip.

4. Catnip Bubbles

These bubbles from Meijer contain pure catnip oil, and the cats have so much fun with them. The bubbles stay intact when they land on the floor, which gets the cats excited to pop them. It has the same smell as the catnip mist, and they could play with these bubbles for hours.

5. Deodorizing Cat Wipes

These wipes by Pet All-Star are the closest I can get to giving my cats a bath. These wipes have a specific PH balance for cats, and they are infused with aloe, vitamin E, and organic oat extract. My cats love to curl up in plants and roll around in the dirt. One wipe down with these and they smell like Vanilla and Coconut, and they are fresh and clean.

6. Friskies Canned Wet Cat Food

My cats definitely recognize this can when they see it, and when they do, they demand it. Immediately. They really enjoy this food as is or baked into treats.

7. Tons of treats

I have all different kinds of treats for the cats around the house of all different textures and flavors, just because you never know when they're going to do something cute.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
