---"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"

Highrise syndrome

It's time to check your screens

 

MetPet.com Staff Writer

Whether you live on the 20th floor of an apartment building in the city or have a 2 story colonial in the suburbs, if you have a cat you'll need to have secure screens on your windows.  Even though they're not apt to jump out of a window without reason, cats will reach for insects or birds or simply lose their footing.

High rise syndrome refers to the spring time phenomenon in cities.  People are most apt to leave windows open during the spring forgetting to check the security of the screens that could have been damaged during the winter.  Check to see that screens have not become warped, the netting has not come loose at the edges or there is the making of a hole in the netting.  If you can't push the screen out, chances are good that even the most determined cat can't either.

If you have any concerns, it's best to keep the windows closed or open just a crack to let in the fresh air. 

Oddly enough, cats that fall from greater heights have been known to survive while those who fall from the lower stories do not.  One theory is that cats relax during the descent and sustain less severe injuries.  Whether the theory holds or not, cats do sustain massive injuries from falls so prevention is the order of the day.
