The perch sits 31 inches high to give cats a nice view out most windows. If you have cats, you already know this is as good as it gets in the way of entertainment for these playful pets. Our two cats, Harley and Raphael love this perch and sit, sleep and play on it often.

Features:

  • Overall Size: 21″ L x 16″ W x 31″ H
  • Covering: Plush Carpet
  • Board: Plywood.
  • Base size: 21” x 16”
  • Cozy cat bed: 16″ inside diameter
  • Cat cradle on top: 17″ L x 11” W
  • Made without glue or any toxic materials.
  • Ships fully assembled.
  • USA Handmade Cat Perch.

Shopping on www.cozycatfurniture.com is a lot of fun. Their website is super easy to maneuver, and full of products and great gift ideas for any feline family member. The check-out was quick, and easy, as was the delivery. They ship orders within 1-3 business days via UPS Ground! Which I love.

The Discount Window Cat Perch with Cradle was delivered already assembled and ready for our cats to enjoy. It’s funny because they sure knew what was inside the box was for them. They were like a couple of kids on Christmas morning!

Retailing for under $100, the Discount Window Cat Perch with Cradle makes our 2014 Holiday Gift Guide as the purrrfect gift for any cat owner.

Beyond_Purina_2bags

Purina has launched its newest line of cat and dog food – Beyond. Available at Mejer.

Purina Beyond natural pet food

  • Beyond starts with natural ingredients. Real meat, poultry or fish is the #1 ingredient, but that’s only the beginning.
  • We’re selective about what goes into our food. But we also say no to corn, wheat and soy, added artificial colors, flavors and preservatives and poultry by-product meal.
  • We hold ourselves to high quality standards. Where ingredients come from and how they’re sourced is an important part of our process. When we start with quality ingredients, it impacts the outcome – a high-quality product for your pet.
  • We don’t take nutrition lightly. Any reference we make to nutrition is backed by our very own in-house pet nutritionists. They formulate every recipe to optimize the way our real ingredients and vitamins and minerals come together to support the long-term health of your pet.

I recently received a couple of bags of Purina Beyond natural pet food to review here on Five Dollar Shake. Our basset hound (Roxy), is pretty easy going and has never turned down kibble, but our two cats (Harley & Raphael) are extremely picky. When I first opened the bags of dry food the aroma was really strong, and not at all appealing to me. I’m guessing that is a major difference when buying pet food that is made of real meat, poultry or fish. Oh, the fish! Turns out what is smelly to me, is heaven to our pets, because they instantly came running and couldn’t wait to eat the new food. They enjoyed every bite. To keep our pets healthy, and happy, because our pets aren’t spoiled in the least – I’ve been buying nothing but Purina Beyond natural pet food ever since. You can see the quality in the food, and the bags never have crumbs at the bottom like other dry kibble. It’s also very reasonably priced at Meijer.

Just in-time for fall, Febreze Home Harvest Collection Review @Walmart @SheSpeaksUp #FebrezeFall

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post on behalf of Walmart, SheSpeaks and Febreze. All opinions expressed and photos used are 100% honest and my own.

Fall is by far my favorite season. Here in Michigan fall brings crisp, cooler temps, and a lot of beautiful color change. Each year I look forward to celebrating the delicious rich flavors and scents associated with fall, like pumpkin, vanilla and spices – I just love them.

I recently received this scentspiration box filled with various fall activities, recipes, home décor ideas, and several products from the limited edition Febreze Home Harvest Collection.

febrezefall_products_barn1

Living in a house with kids, and several pets, I have been a regular user of Febreze products for quit some time. I love the way it works. Febreze doesn’t cover up odors, it actually eliminates them and replaces them with some of my favorite scents. Like Toasted Almonds, Vanilla Latte, and Autumn Harvest.

febrezefall_products1

The Febreze NOTICEable Dual Scented Oil Warmer does a great job at eliminating pet odor. We have one plugged in near our dog’s bed, and another in the room where the cat box located. Febreze makes all the diffidence! The warmers work for such a long time, that I often forget to replace them. Until, I walk into a room and smell the unwanted odor. So, I tend to keep one or two refills on hand. I can’t wait to stock up with these limited edition fall scents.

New to me is the Febreze Car Vent Clip that was included in this box. It attached easily and acted instantly on hard to rid of pet odor in my car. Replaced it with the nice fall aroma of Toasted Almonds. I love it! Moving forward, I honestly do not see myself going without one.

febreze_carplug

I can’t wait to really dig into this fall inspirational box! It’s packed with fall recipes (Hello- Oven S’mores), fall activities for the whole family, and even crafty home décor ideas. Each a great way to celebrate my love for the season.

Thanks to Febreze Harvest Collection for not only eliminated odors, but for adding that fall festive touch to our home that we enjoy.

Have you ever used Febreze to add an extra festive touch to your home?
