---"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"

 

Plants as Litterboxes

How to keep both your cats and your plants healthy

MetPet.com Staff Writer

Does your cat prefer your beautiful potted plants to the litterbox?  It's possible that the litterbox is not appealing or that your cat likes the fresh smell of dirt over litter.  Once you've made the litterbox appealing, you need to make the plant unappealing. 

First, remove as much of the soil in the pot as possible without harming the roots.  This will remove much of the existing cat odor.  Watering a plant that has cat pee in it will only refresh the odor and encourage a repeat performance!  

Second, add new sterilized potting soil from the garden store.   Do not add soil from your garden since a stray cat (or your own cat) could have left their scent in it.  Add large, smooth river rocks on top of the soil.  The rocks should be too large for your cat to move around (about the size of your hand) and spaced so you can still water the plant.  River rocks are usually available at garden centers, large hardware stores or rock quarry outlets (check yellow pages).   Arrange the rocks so that they are not flat.  That is, discourage your cat from stepping on them by stacking some of them diagonally or upright.  

Finally, move the plant, at least temporarily, to a different location to break his habit.  A good location would be anywhere that is the opposite of where you would place a litterbox.
