---"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"

 

Blanket Landscape for Cats

The free, fast and easy way to enrich your cat's environment

MetPet.com Staff Writer

Your indoor cat stares at the same four walls everyday.  Cats, however, are sturdy and fast predators with minds to match.  It just isn't natural to be confined to a never-changing indoor landscape.  Here's a quick and easy idea to vary the look of the inside of those four walls.  It's inexpensive, it's temporary and it will help save your drapes from the climbing claws of a bored cat. 

Take an old blanket and lay it out flat in the middle of the floor.  Try and pick an area without furniture so that you don't have the blanket covering furniture especially it it's upholstered.  That is so your can't doesn't think of upholstered furniture as part of its play area.  Once he has that notion, it's hard to break him of the habit. 

Place some pillows and cushions (those you don't mind having scratched up) underneath the blanket at various places a few feet apart.  Bunch up the blanket so you have mounds of blanket/cushion with some flat spaces in between.  

Place some bat and swat toys on top of the blanket.  Smooth balls like RattleBouncers will work best on a nubby and soft surface.  Now you're ready to play.  

Take your favorite interactive toy and run it up on top of the blanket, over and around the mounds and underneath the blanket.  Make sure your cat sees the toy while you keep it just out of reach.  He'll be especially happy if you run the toy underneath the folds of the blanket and let it peak out of the side just so he can try and grab it.  He'll soon get the idea that this is his area to play with his toys.  

The blanket varies the environment, it is washable, easy to pack up and store and gives your cat a play area that isn't on top of your nicely upholstered imported sofa.  Play with him a few times a day everyday.  It's great for him and a great, natural break  for you.  He'll soon be looking forward to your time together.
