One of the perks of blogging here is that I find out about cool products. I’m starting a new column for subscribers to Pet News and Views. Pet News and Views (that’s me–Michele) and pet product companies will give away goodies and offer discounts to you. All you have to do is subscribe, and your name goes into a virtual hat. (It’s actually randomizer.org that picks a winner.)
For Your Cat
Litter Kwitter is a 3-step cat toilet training system. I know someone who trained her cat to use this (and yes, cats can be trained), and is very pleased that she no longer schleps heavy bags of kitty litter. It took a while, but it worked. Her cat is five, and she trained him to use the toilet in 8 weeks. The Litter Kwitter comes with a 30-minute DVD with step-by-step directions, three training disks, and a comprehensive instruction booklet.
You can see how it works by clicking on the video. It retails between $49.00 and $59.00. You can also visit their Facebook page. The company that makes Litter Kwitter is giving one system away to a Pet News and Views’ subscriber. Just leave a comment below stating that you would like to try the Litter Kwitter and, your name will go into a virtual hat via randomizer.org. The contest ends this Friday (December 17). The contest winner will be announced after the holidays. If you are the winner, I will contact you.
For Your Dogs
Everyone can participate in this one. One of my favorite companies is DoggieStylish. True to its name, DoggieStylish creates stylish collars for dogs. Iâ€™m pleased to report that my friend Karen Friesecke, who runs DoggieStylish, is giving readers of Pet News and Views a 20% discount on its fashionable and functional collars. The DoggieStylish site also offers readers info on how to make your own dog sweaters, collars, dog houses, and dog treats. To receive your 20% discount coupon, which is good from now through December 31, 2010, visit DoggieStylish and when you place your order, add the letters PNV.
For Pet Lovers
You may know that Happy Tails carries a line of inspiring books about adopted dogs and cats, but did you know that Happy Tails Books donates a significant portion of their sales to animal rescue? That makes reading even better! Their annual donations totaled more than $10,00. They’d like to beat that next year, but they need your help.
Consider doing your holiday shopping at Happy Tails Books. Kyla Duffy, founder and co-editor of Happy Tails Books, is offering readers of Pet News and Views $2 off any purchase, which includes books, stationery, and holiday ornaments. December is Double Donation month at Happy Tails Books, so if you’d prefer to pay full price, Happy Tails Books will double their donation to one of the many rescues listed here.
If you want to use your coupon code or donate it back to Happy Tails, Pet News and Views readers should go to the site, place your order, and use the code PetNews2. This code is good through the end of this month (December 31, 2010).
