Not a Crazy Cat Lady

When people know that I am a single woman, with a cat, I often get the side eye and know instinctively that in their head they are thinking “oooooh she’s a crazy cat lady”.  Let me set the record straight – I am not a crazy cat lady.  I have one cat that on the most part drives me crazy.  🙂

I have always been a cat person.  I don’t think I can really remember a time in my life that I didn’t have a cat of my own (or at my parents).   Don’t get me wrong, I love dogs too, but I just find that with my life and commitments, that having a dog just isn’t the right fit for me.  Being a single woman, I sometime use the cat the keep me a bit sane at night.  If I hear a random noise at night, I automatically just blame it on the cat.

As much as my cat can sometimes drive me crazy, she definitely is good company to have.  I love nothing more than to have her snuggle up on my lap while I am watching TV.

Recently, Hartz provided us with some of their latest product to try out.

Hartz Just for Cats Twirl and Whirl 


It was hard to get a good picture of this product because I barely had it out of the box and my cat was wanting to play with it.  It contains catnip so she was going crazy for it.  It somewhat reminded me of a fishing rod with feathers and mouse on the end of it.  As you can see by the picture, she pulled it right out of my hands a couple of times.  She loved playing with this, but so did my son.   He couldn’t stop laughing as she kept jumping for it as he would pull it away from her.  Best part, after all the running around, it tires her out and she then sleeps well those nights.



Delectables Lickable Treats


What cat doesn’t love a treat?  Generally my cat eats hard food but when I want to give a treat, I will give her soft food and then add water to it to make it almost a soup.  These Delectable Bisque and Stews save me from all that.  They kind of have the consistency of a baby food puree and my cat ate it up in no time flat.  She devoured it.  One of the samples I received was for a Senior (10yrs +) cat.  My cat is only about 7 yrs old, so I took this to my parents cat to try out.  She tends to be a bit of a picky eater and she had her sample gone in a flash.

Lightweight Litter


If there is one thing I have to complain about with my cat is the litter box.  I can’t stand a smelly litter box and I hate having to drag the big heavy box of litter home from the store.  This Light Weight Multi Cat litter is the answer to those 2 problems.

We were going away a few weekends back, so I decided to give this litter the 2 day test.  I filled the litter box with this litter and left it for the 2 days we were away.  One thing I noticed is that the litter itself has much larger granules than the normal litter I use.  I am guessing it has to do with it being lightweight, as the container was nice and light and much easier to carry.

After returning from being away, I came back to no awful smell and a litter box that was super easy to clean.  This litter definitely clumps better than other brands that I have used.  Being able to remove more of the dirty litter, the less smell.  I will definitely be using this from now on.  Now if only I could get the cat from kicking it on to the floor.

Ultra Care Flea and Tick Products



My cat is an indoor cat, but she does love to sneak out when someone comes to the door.  She never goes far and only ends up being out for a few minutes at a time, but that is time enough for her to pick up bugs, especially fleas and ticks.  Now that the warmer weather is here, I am letting her lay on the porch a bit longer or meander through the front flower beds so I need to be extra cautious.  The Flea Protector is an easy way to prevent the onset of fleas.  Applied once a month, and it takes care of itself.

I like the Flea and Tick spray, as I can apply it directly to her when she comes in from outside.  With Lyme disease from ticks so prevalent these days, I always give her a once over when  she comes in and now give her a spray when needed.  The last thing I need is vet bills from a nasty tick bite.

So like any other member of my family, I like to make sure that she enjoys her time with us and Hartz definitely helps.
