National Cat Day is, Oct. 29, according to nationalcatday.com. Founded in 2005 by Pet and Lifestyle Expert & Animal Welfare Advocate Colleen Page, the holiday–and its group of supporters and sponsors–support the recognition of the number of cats that need to be rescued each year as well as encourage cat lovers to celebrate the cat(s) in their lives for the unconditional love and companionship they offer.

Two Bostons also is recognizing the entire month of October as Cat Month across all our locations!

While you may have heard about some of the super fun cat toys that we offer–

such as the DuckyWorld Banana and the Kong Gide n Seek–from our recent newsletters and Facebook posts,

would make a great National Cat Day gift for your cat. It can provide warmth and comfort for your kitten on these upcoming cold days. Simply microwave this toy and place with your cat when you’re away, or any other time she needs comfort. The Kitty Cuddle Pal is imported and filled with buckwheat. Remove the buckwheat pouch to wash. Your cat will thank you for this “purr-fect” gift all winter long!

 

 

 

And if you want to make a big splash for National Cat Day, Halloween, or just a head start on your holiday shopping, Two Bostons also has a great selection of cat furniture.

Hi guys — it’s another blog from the Cat Corner! Some of us at Two Bostons are true “cat ladies.” Not crazy, thankfully — but pretty enthusiastic when it comes to creative new toys. The Glide ‘N Seek by Kong is another one that my cats at home have tried.

The Glide ‘N Seek features a little magnetic feather that seems to come alive once the toy’s motor is turned on. This feather spins and bounces unpredictably, so cats are attracted to the movement as it pokes through the toy’s peek-a-boo holes. Cats use their paws to bat at the feather — but since it moves in all different directions, most cats start trying to hunt it, chase it, and pounce!

I’ll admit that it took my cats a few tries to get the hang of it, as you’ll see in the videos below. At first they liked the toy just sitting there turned off, and played with it like that. But they needed just a little more mental stimulation to hold their interest — and this is where the moving yellow feather came in. Cats are naturally attracted to movement, and they can never figure out where that feather will pop up next. Faced with a situation like that, it doesn’t take long for a cat’s predatory instincts to kick in. The magnets keep the chase challenging, so your cat stays engaged even when you have housework, homework, or other projects to focus on.

The Glide ‘N Seek is also easy for nearly anyone to operate, because it turns on and off with the press of a single button. You can even boost the curiosity factor by inserting a favorite toy, so your cat will paw at it through the holes. Here’s a video of Hunter and LuLu playing with the Glide ‘N Seek. Please ignore the background noises — but notice those focused looks on their faces! Stop by any Two Bostons store, and we’ll be happy to tell you more.
