---"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!"

---"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.

How to greet a cat

The tip of your finger is almost hypnotic to a cat

 

MetPet.com Staff Writer

If you've ever watched two friendly or well-acquainted cats greet each other, you'll notice that they first go nose-to-nose.  This type of greeting between acquaintances can also be used between humans and cats to set a friendly tone to the meeting. 

Since people are so much taller than cats, it's difficult to sink down to their level and touch noses.  Besides, human faces are so large that even the friendliest cat may draw back in alarm.


Try substituting the tip of your index finger for your nose.  Point your finger and slowly direct it towards the cat's face and let him sniff it.  Chances are good that the cat, even a stranger, will come closer or rise up on its haunches for a smell.  That would, after all, be the polite thing to do and it appears to be a normal reaction.

We find it puts cats at ease and helps to avoid the hissing, growling and tail swishing that are clear signs to keep your distance.  If the cat hisses, growls, swishes its tail quickly or violently back and forth, bristles its tail or arches its back (unless it's just stretching after a nap) then it's a good idea to back off and try again later.

We've heard this also works with chickens and lobsters but we haven't tried it out yet.
