Product Review: SmartyKat Super Scratcher

March 18, 2019

So, we were looking in Walmart last night for a scratching post for our new kitty, Jingles, because he likes to sharpen his super long claws on everything — the bed, the living room furniture, the back of the couch. We feel like if we taught him to put those tiny but extremely sharp claws […]

Pet product review: Kitty City Jungle Panther Play Cube

January 21, 2019

We bought the Kitty City Jungle Panther Play Cube from Wal-Mart in Greenville, North Carolina for $4.98 plus tax. We had been eyeing this for a while now. But, our cat, Motor, pretty much likes to sleep on top of things as opposed to inside stuff and we weren’t sure if she would care for […]

December 17, 2018

Different kinds of cat litter require changing with different frequency. But the most basic kind — clay cat litter — usually needs to be changed at least twice a week. But with so many other things going on in our busy lives, it can sometimes be easy to forget about changing the litter on time […]

How to make a swing for a chicken

November 30, 2018

We have seen chicken swings for sale for $30 and up on online pet stores and ebay. We love our chickens, but that seemed a bit pricey. So we made our own. Given that we already had everything we needed except the rope, it ended up costing us about $4. And that leaves us enough […]

We are constantly fighting the fight to keep the algae from growing on the insides of all of our pet’s water bowls. Today was time to seriously scrub down the chicken’s water trough. Cleaning the water bowl for the cat and dogs bowl is a lot easier because it’s in the house and we can […]

How to make a fancy dog collar for under $10 and in about 20 minutes

November 17, 2018

First off, here’s Scooby modeling the collar we made. Here’s how we did it: We bought a large collar at Dollar General for around $4. The collar is an adjustable-type collar. Just plain black, but the color didn’t really matter because we knew we were going to be covering it up with ribbon and decorations. […]

Dog treat gift bottles: make homemade dog treats and recycle bottles into beautiful gifts!

October 16, 2018

This post started with us wondering what to do with the massive amount of Starbucks Frappuccino bottles we have collected. They are very nice bottles, so we don’t really want to throw them out, but they’ve been sitting on our shelves for awhile and we feel guilty whenever we get a new one. So, we […]

Making a chicken feeder from a recycled soda bottle

October 8, 2018

We found this Soda Bottle Feeder for $3.50 at the Gift Shop at River Park North in Greenville, North Carolina, although we noticed you can also find it on Amazon.com for $5.99 and similar items for what we paid and upward. Although it looked like it was for regular birds, we thought maybe it would […]

What can you feed chickens if you don’t have money for chicken feed?

August 26, 2018

We’ve been there. Buying bag after bag of chicken feed can get expensive. And sometimes you just run out and can’t get to Tractor Supply or wherever you buy your feed before the chickens are going to get hungry again. We don’t recommend it for chicks, but in a pinch, we’ve bought bird seed, especially […]
