---"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"

The Points and Colorpoints of Cats

Cat Coat Patterns and Colors

 

MetPet.com Staff Writer

The points of a cat refer to areas of fur that have darker colors than the central part of the body.  These areas include: faces, ears, tails, lower legs and paws.  They are called extremities because they are away from the warm heart and other central organs and are, consequently, cooler in temperature. 

That temperature difference is what causes the darker color.

Cool = darker           Warm = paler

Pointed cats such as the Siamese, are born pale all over.   As they grow older, the points gradually develop.  If such a cat is injured on his paw, for example, and you bandage that paw, the fur underneath the bandage will become lighter due to the additional warmth.

The warmth of a fever can cause the fur to become paler.   Age, and the gradual cooling of the body that can come with it, can cause the fur to become darker.
