Cat Scratcher

Catnip encourages your cat to enjoy themselves as well as move and play more. These benefits are particularly useful in helping overweight cats get the exercise they need to trim down.

If you’re after a high-quality batch to give to your cat, FAT CAT® Zoom Around the Room® high-test organic catnip is it. This 100% Organic Grown In USA product contains only the leaf and the flower. Comes in a zip-sealed plastic bag for ultimate freshness.

Grooming your cat will help reduce the amount of hair shed which is why investing in quality cat grooming tools is one of the most useful items you can use as a cat owner.

Most cats can groom themselves, but certain breeds benefit from regular grooming. If you have a long-haired cat, it is essential to groom them regularly to avoid mats and tangles. In addition, regular grooming can help to reduce shedding, minimize hairballs, and keep your cat’s coat healthy and looking its best. While some people may view grooming as a chore, it can be a great bonding experience for you and your cat.

Brushing can help your cat to relax and feel more comfortable around you. It can also be a bonding experience for the two of you. JW® GripSoft® Brushes offer a wide variety of options to bring out the shine in your pet’s coat.
