I see it from across the room, a quick moving black and white figure, but all of the sudden the dark shadow disappears. The next thing I hear is scratch, scratch, purr, and then I see Bella The Cat. Bella moves like lightening from place to place and before I know it she is right on my lap begging for a rubdown, a quick scratch and a bit of love. Since she has stopped by my lap I gently lift her and bring her to the her table and grab her favorite brush, so that I can help take a bit of that loose hair off of her. Thankfully today I was here to give Bella the love she is looking for and craving but some days I can’t be here. My little Bella the cat really loves to scratch and she loves a good brushing and I have the solution for both. Here’s how to help your cat scratch and let them lavishly live self-grooming out loud.
This is by far one of the coolest little items Bella has tested out. I do believe it is perfect for scratching as well as massaging, but I do not believe it will eliminate shedding or make a home hair-free.
Are the bristles on the Purrfect Arch really stiff and hurtful? No, in fact they are really soft, and feel good against the hand. Bella has walked through here over and over to just rub up against the durable bristles.
The base is sturdy and does not tip over and it has carpet on it, which Bella loves to dig her nails into and scratch away.
The put together was really simple on this Purrfect Arch, I just attached the bristles, and it was all set to go. I did not add catnip, because Bella was immediately attracted to the bristles so it was not necessary. You do have the option to add catnip to the base of this or just sprinkle it onto the carpet. DO I believe this will stop shedding or stop the cat hair you find around the house? Not at all, but I do believe that our Bella loves to use this as a place to scratch, and to massage herself when I am not available.
Now a word from Morris the Cat!
Hey Dana Vento readers! Morris the Cat, from 9Lives cat food, here. (You may have thought that a cat’s only computer skills involve laying on the keyboard while others are trying to use it, but in fact, we are very tech savvy.)
For those of you who don’t know me, I’ve starred in over fifty 9Lives cat food commercials, am an advo-cat for kitty rescue, and was even crowned one of Advertising’s Greatest Icons by the Museum of Broadcast Communications. (But I must say, I took issue with this honor. I didn’t know I was advertising all those years… I just really love 9Lives!)
In case you couldn’t guess, I’m purr-ty much an expert when it comes to eating, and that’s the subject of my next venture. As you know, the holidays are ‘prime eating time’ and I want you to be able to chow down like a pro. I also thought, with everyone in the holiday spirit, it’s a great time to give back. Lucky for you, giving back is as easy as using your opposable thumbs. With those two bad boys – and the rest of your fingers – you can help feed a kitty in need. Watch this video to find out how. (Spoiler Alert: It’s totally FREE!)
I don’t know about you but all this meowing about food has gotten me hungry. I’ve made it my mission to help cats and humans eat well – and by extension – live well. (I’ve often said the key to life can be found in your food dish.) With that in mind, I invite you to check out my video. If you’ve ever caught yourself inhaling your food between errands or carting your human kittens around… or if you mindlessly shovel in your dinner while catching up on the latest episode of “Meownton Abbey” or “Silicon Alleycat”… then this guide is for you!
In it, you’ll learn how to eat like the true foodie you were meant to be. On my site Prospurr.9Lives.com, you can also enter to win a customized drivable cooler, so if you do have to eat on the go, you can do so in style. And don’t forget to tweet #MorrisFeeds to give hungry kitties the gift of a tasty, hearty 9Lives meal. On that note, my stomach is starting to rumble. What’s on the menu tonight, you ask? 9Lives Lean & Tasty and a side of Meaty Paté with Real Chicken. For a beverage I’ll be enjoying some delicious tap water. How about you?
See, it’s all about How To Help Your Cat Scratch and help others! Morris the Cat is totally the most cool cat I have known and the holiday is ready to go! Lavishly live cats out loud and join in with Morris the Cat and #MorrisFeeds to really make a difference.
