You know, our guys play with properly inflated footballs and still win!
The Cat Ball
If you have ever been a custodian of a feline, you have probably noticed how much they like to crawl into small places. For example, a cardboard box can become a home and one of my friend’s motorcycle helmets ended up being the perfect safe space for her cat.
Assuming you don’t want a cardboard box or motorcycle helmet laying around to entertain your furry friends…introducing The Cat Ball®.
Most of the Cat Ball beds are made in Washington state and come in a variety of shapes and sizes. They are made of nothing but fabric and foam so they are safe and machine washable.
Cats love to hang out in small spaces for rest or just a hiding place for a sneak attack on a fellow cat or human.
See a great selection of these beds at our Kirkland Store.
While shopping at the McLendon hardware store I spotted this sign.
How cool (get it?) is that?
This pet friendly business accepts the company of your best friend. Not only that, they will supply water and a treat.
We are not in any way affiliated with McLendon but we do like pet friendly businesses.
A car in the sun at 90F (32C) degrees will be 140F (60C) inside. This weekend we are looking at 95 degrees!
Think about it.
The festival of light is held in the country of Nepal every year. Also called Tihar, this five day event celebrates various great things in life. The second day celebrates the DOG! This day is called Kukur Tihar or Kukur Puja (worship of the dogs)
Dogs are believed to be messengers of Lord Yamaraj and are worshiped on this day. People offer garlands, tika and delicious food to dogs and acknowledge the cherished relationship between humans and dogs.
Although we worship our pets daily, we think it’s cool when our special friends are acknowledged.

Why is massage important for your pet?
(from Gretchen at Triple Dog Pet Services)
Our animals are made of the same stuff as we are — blood, bone, muscles, organs — and like us they benefit from touch or body work in the same ways we do. A focused massage, swim, and/or acupressure session can help relive muscle tension, aide healing from injuries, or speed up recovery from surgery or trauma. Body work can aid digestion, balance the flow of Chi (life force), reduce pain and swelling, and improve joint flexibility and proprioception. Regular sessions can decrease muscle spasms, nourish the skin and coat, and increase mobility for aging and arthritic animals.
In my practice, I use many modalities to help bring the body back into homeostasis (balance) by supporting the body’s natural healing abilities. I am licensed by Washington State as a Small Animal Massage Practitioner (SAMP) and have my certification in Small Animal Acupressure as well. I work both in client’s homes offering massage and acupressure sessions, and at the Aqua Dog Spa (in Kent) and Splash Dog Spa (in Edmonds) providing swim and massage therapy.
Currently, I’m studying other modalities as well — Manual Ligament Therapy through the Northwest School of Animal Massage and Indirect Functional Techniques with Patricia Kortekaas in Eugene, Oregon. During each session, I work with the human and animal client to assess which modality may be the most beneficial to help the dog (or cat) overcome illness, recover from surgery, or maintain their level of health as they age. I love my work and I love sharing what I know with my animal clients and their guardians.
This is why I am so excited to be teaming up with Natural Pet Pantry (NPP). With their commitment to quality nutrition, their high standard of integrity, and their never-ending quest to stay informed on the latest research NPP always puts the health of the animal at the forefront of their business model.
