---"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"

Dogs help people stay fit

Even if you forget, your dog will remind you to exercise

MetPet.com exercising womanResearch has shown that it doesn't matter how you divide up your exercise during the day.  What matters is that you exercise during the day on a consistent basis. 

30 minutes once a day, 15 minutes twice a day or 10 minutes three times a day produce the same good results in weight loss, fat loss and general health. 

Interestingly enough, walking your dog 3-5 times a day (depending on your dog's need to go out) accomplishes your need for daily exercise.  It's easy, it's on an easy to remember schedule (that is Rover staring at you expectantly) and you have to do it daily. 

Rover will keep fitter, be happier and a regular schedule will really help prevent carpet accidents particularly in very old and very young dogs.  What's not to like in this arrangement?

Note that pushing the dog out the front door on the end of a long leash doesn't count.  A walk needs to be brisk to be effective. 

Here are some ideas to make those 10 minutes fly by:
Walk with a chatty neighbor.
Walk to a predetermined destination that is 5 minutes away from home for a 10 minute roundtrip.
Invest in a portable tape player and some motivational tapes.
Invest in a pedometer so you can track your progress.
Forget the pedometer and count your steps.
Compose letters, memos, shopping lists, to do lists in your head. 

Any exercise is better than no exercise.  With 60% of American humans overweight and their dogs not far behind, today is the day to get started on an effective exercise schedule.
