---"I want to add my praise for WiggleLegs Frog toy.  My cat loves to play with WiggleLegs No other toy will do.  When I ask her to find WiggleLegs she goes right to it!  I just ordered 3 more as I'm afraid you will stop making them and then I don't know what we will do!"

---"Once again, you have provided excellent service with an excellent product. Thanks for the extra - it was a hit! My cats are totally addicted to the WiggleLegs Frog, so please keep plenty in stock!"


---"I just wanted to let you know that my cat, Molly, is absolutely addicted to your FlyToys. I literally have to hide them from her so she will go to sleep at night, but as soon as morning arrives she is sitting right in front of their hiding place waiting for them to come out and play."

Each MetPet FlyToy is handmade by skilled artisans with great attention to detail.  They come in the form of bugs, amphibians, mammals and more in three very reasonable price points.

---"I can't believe how your company understands cats so well"

Lettuce for Cats

Adding roughage, interest and hydration to your cat's diet

 

MetPet.com Staff Writer

Lettuce can be a helpful addition to your cat's diet.   It provides bulk, moisture and nutrients.  If your cat is overweight, lettuce is a low-calorie food that will help fill him up.  If you have recently switched from moist foods to dry kibble, your cat may need more water in his diet and the lettuce can help.  It is also a nice change of pace for an indoor cat without access to a variety of grasses and interesting weeds.

Try slicing a lettuce leaf into very thin (like grass blades) slices.  You can try romaine which is easy to cut or whatever you have in the frig.  Take a large leaf and roll it like a cigar.  Then, carefully with your sharp kitchen knife and with the fingers holding the leaf rolled under to protect your fingertips, slice through the multiple layers to get matchstick-skinny slices. 

Place the lettuce alongside his regular dish.  Cats are notoriously suspicious of new things so don't be discouraged if he ignores it initially.  Add it on a regular basis and he may just get the idea.

Outdoor cats chew on grass and indoor cats chew on houseplants.  Therefore, lettuce shouldn't be too much of a leap even for your carnivorous feline.
