---"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"

Science Experiment: Whom does bacteria love more?

Is it a myth?  Experiments with petri dishes show that dog mouths have fewer bacteria than human mouths.

Yeech!

This is an interesting and easy activity for a rainy day with the kids or just to settle your curious mind.  Do dogs really have cleaner mouths than humans? 

You will need a human, a dog, a cat and other mildly cooperative pets and some petri dishes with growing medium.  Twirl a swab around said mouths and swab onto the petri dishes.  We did hear about some direct licking of dishes going on when this topic was presented on The Discovery Channel's Mythbusters but, well, you decide. 

We have seen this experiment repeated a number of times and dogs do indeed have significantly lower bacteria growth.  We've never actually seen it with cats, parrots, hamsters and other pets so the jury is still out.

That said, doctors would be much more worried about infection if you were bitten by a human than by a vaccinated dog.
