It's been said that if someone is a good person in this life, they will be reincarnated as a beloved house pet in the next. With a pair of bossy Chihuahua mutts and a cantankerous fifteen-year-old cat at home, I certainly spend a good deal of time catering to furry little whims, so maybe there's some truth to the statement. In any case, here's a roundup of pet-friendly products that keep my animal overlords happy.

pets leather leash

Hand Braided Leather Leash

This leash is made from super flexible and soft naturally tanned harness leather. The leather itself is nicely textured for a good grip and feels great in the hands. The standard width for this leash is ½”. The braids are approx. 9” apart. We will make this leash to any length. Available in black latigo leather too (black is a slightly heavier thick leather), just ask.

pets heating mat

The K&H Thermo-Kitty Mat is an affordable heated sleeping mat with a dual thermostat heater buried beneath soft foam to make a comfortable napping place for cats.

The Thermo-Kitty Mat is available in two colors and the cover is removable for washing. Indoor use only. UL listed.

pets green poop bags

Biodegradable Poop Bags

The two main types of biodegradable plastics: oxo-biodegradable and hydro-biodegradable. In both cases degradation begins with a chemical process (oxidation or hydrolysis), followed by a biological process. Both types emit CO2 as they degrade, but hydro-biodegradables (usually starch-based) can also emit methane. Both types are compostable, but only oxo-biodegradable can be economically recycled. **When the material has reached the fragmentation stage it is no longer a plastic, and is "biodegradable" in the same way as nature's wastes such as straw and twigs.

There's also a super-plush removable foam bed inside that's machine washable, and you can even buy a warming pad as an add-on.
