While reading blogs yesterday, we learned from the darling kitties, Peaches and Paprika that yesterday was Christmas Card Day

Cody is proud because so far (and usually every year), he received more cards than Dakota and he also receives more cards than his Dad and I do!!!

We have received a number of cards via email and a few have come via snail mail (THANK YOU!!). We want those of you who are on the list to know that our cards are addressed and ready to go, except for STAMPS! (It would help to have stamps, right?) I ordered stamps from Amazon a couple of weeks ago and was told they are on their way, so hopefully they will appear today and then I will get my cards out.

Until then, in case we missed anyone, feel free to grab either of these cards:


The card above will appear in Peaches and Paprika's Slide Show, and the one below is an oldie but goodie!!


Also, we will be posting photos of our ecards and hopefully our snail mail cards on Christmas Eve!!!

 "Part toy, part decor, this sushi set will stimulate your kitty's
 natural instincts to explore and play." The Munchiecat  toys are non-toxic. They are made using  pet-safe materials so you can feel good about offering them to your kitties! Munchiecat makes their toys in small batches to ensure freshness and quality. 

The Munchiecat Dream:   "Our dream is to make high quality, pet-safe toys that you can feel good about offering to your furry friends. We started with a Sushi set because even the grumpiest and aloofest (yeah, that’s a word) of cats deserve better than cheap plastic balls and rubber mice."

Hi furiends!!! The first time we featured Cody's FAVORITE "pet feeding, foraging and exercise toy" (for cats and even small dogs!), Bat-A-Rat, it was way back on January 20, 2011.

Cody used that toy virtually EVERY SINGLE DAY until a few months ago when either his Dad or myself dropped it one too many times (and trust me, we dropped it A LOT) and it finally broke. That means that Cody used it EVERY SINGLE DAY for SEVEN YEARS!!! In our opinion, that ALONE is the BEST testimonial about this toy that could EVER be given!



I tried a few things in-between and NONE of them compared to Bat-A-Rat. My husband and I knew we needed another one and since I am cheap, the creator, Brian Dotterer is from Michigan and I was lucky enough to meet he and his delightful wife, Michele when I first reviewed it,  I decided to reach out and ask if Cody could have another, and offered to feature this fabulous toy on our blog again. He said YES!! We couldn't be more grateful!!


What Is "Bat-A-Rat?"

"Bat-A-Rat™ is an innovative pet feeding toy that provides hours of stimulation while controlling the amount of food being dispensed. Designed with a cat or small dog in mind, this feeder specifically helps those pets that tend to eat too much or too fast resulting in unhealthy and unwanted consequences.


In addition to controlling how much and how fast your pet eats, food dispensing toys like Bat-A-Rat™ (also known as foraging toys) give your indoor cat something to stalk and hunt, providing a much needed outlet for their prey drive and hunting instincts."


Why "Bat-A-Rat?"

  • Designed for cats and small dogs
  • Non-toxic, eco-friendly, food grade plastic
  • Self-propelled; no batteries required
  • Provides hours of stimulation for your pet!



How it Works

"The innovative design wobbles and moves about the floor, forcing your pet to move and interact with the toy in order to eat. The unique food dispensing hole adjusts by rotating the two ends; allowing for different sized dry food and dispensing rates. Holes at the bottom allow trapped bits to escape. The two ends come apart for easy filling and cleaning."



See for yourself in our video below!

With the holidays rapidly approaching this would make a GREAT gift for your kitties and small dogs, you can purchase Bat-A-Rat here, also follow Bat-A-Rat on Facebook  you can purchase it there as well! (Be sure to tell them Caren and Cody sent you!!)




FTC DISCLOSURE: we were not compensated financially for sharing about this product. We SINCERELY ADORE IT and have used it since 2011 as mentioned above. We received a new Bat-A-Rat when we asked for one and said we would feature it on our blog again. We only feature products that we have used or that we WOULD use and that we feel would be of interest to our readers.
