---"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"

 

Greyhound adoption

These beautiful couch lovers may be just what you need

MetPet.com Staff Writer

Every year, the racing industry has 20,000 or more greyhounds to "dispose" of.  Dog racing is a form of legal gambling and not an athletic sport.   It is legal in 16 states and has actually been declining in popularity over the last 20 years.  As with thoroughbred horse racing, the popularity of greyhound racing is being overtaken by other forms of gaming including casinos and online betting. 

If they are not rescued by organizations and adopted by families, these amazing athletes are euthanized.  They are young, elegant, healthy dogs who are tractable, gentle with humans and surprisingly lazy and docile.  They can live in a small house or apartment as long as they get the occasional all out run around a field or dog park.

Since they have little fat, they require soft, warm bedding to cushion their bones.  They have narrow heads and thick necks so they require wide leather or nylon collars or a martingale slip collar.  This type of collar is a slip or "choke" type but stops narrowing at a predefined point. 

Greyhounds spend most of their young lives in cages (20-24 hours/day) without the standard socialization but they are screened by rescue organizations and are easy to train.  Greyhounds are "sight" hounds which means they hunt by watching for small game and then chasing it down.  Since they are taught  to chase fake bunnies on the track, they can be dangerous to small mammals including cats and small dogs.   

If you have other pets, ask the rescue group about a dog that is comfortable around other animals.  Since many dogs are brought into foster homes before they are adopted, the rescuers will be able to tell you if they have one that will work for you. 

Are you interested in adopting one of these beautiful and elegant dogs?  Many rescue organizations regularly set up adoption centers at local pet stores and are easy to find on the net under greyhound adoption.
