Do I Look Like a Dog To You?

My kitty-boy Geeno is an adventurer.  He’s discovered how to use the pet-screendoor to get to the backyard.  Fortunate for us that his curiosity hasn’t led him to go beyond a few feet from the patio so we were able to get him back inside.

But, we can’t lock or block the pet-door to prevent him from ‘escaping’ again, our dogs would suffer if they couldn’t get to the backyard for some relief.  So, we decided to see if we could get Geeno into a harness & leash and let him explore the great outdoors without chance of escape.

Here’s a pic:

My girls and I were suprised…he didn’t give us a fight and he did really well walking around with it on.

Here’s a video of his brief adventure outside.  We’ll need to try out the harness & leash on our other 2 kitties and see if they’ll do as well as my Geeno.

If you got a cat, are they leash trained?  Share your comment or any other thoughts below!

Thanks for stopping by and reading!

Clean+Green Review (and Bonus!)

With the addition of a dachshund (Hercules) and a kitten (Izzie) into our family, I’m in constant search for a product that can get rid of the doggie odor and the litter stink that’s become a part of our household aroma.

But not only does the product need to be effective, it also needs to be ‘green’ and non-toxic.  I have two young children and I don’t like them to be exposed to harmful chemicals if I can help it.

Enter Clean+Green.

Created by SeaYu, Clean+Green is a pet clean up system that is effective, safe, and just as the name says, ‘green.’  It offers eco-friendly, natural cleaning products for dogs, cats, birds, and other small animals for various surfaces.  Their non-toxic, environmentally friendly cleaners are made with organic and biodegradable ingredients that work to remove such nasty stains from dog or cat urine, vomit, bird droppings, and other small animal accidents.  Ingredients include cane sugar derivatives, proprietary blend of botanical extracts, hydrated cellulose (cleaning agents), purified water, and nitrogen.

Their special powerfully, patented Advanced Eliminator³ Formula™ works by encapsulating the source of a stain or odor then naturally biodegrades the source, thus eradicating the stain or odor.

And, it’s safe for the ozone layer because it uses nitrogen as the propellant instead of harmful CFCs!

The Critique
I received a can of Furniture Refresher for Dogs to use on the sofa protector that’s embedded with doggie B.O.  Hercules thinks the sofa is his day bed while we’re out of the house and has no problem rubbing himself all over the cover.  I loathe to sit on the sofa, in fact a rarely ever do just because it stinks.

After following the instructions to prep the product for use (nothing complicated, just align the nozzle with the dot on the can lip) I generously sprayed the half of the cover so that it was damp, but not soaked and let it air dry.  Immediately after spraying I did notice that the doggie B.O. was disappearing from the sprayed side.  After 15 minutes, the smell of Hercules was gone from the sprayed side of the cover.  However, while the furniture refresher did eliminate the dog odor, it left behind a trace scent.  Nothing overpowering, but it did smell slightly odd, can’t describe it, but it was definitely ‘better’ than dog B.O.!  And after a couple of days I didn’t even notice it.

I also got a can of Small Animal All Purpose and used it for the litter box.  As all cat lovers know….the litter box and the trash that we empty those kitty clumps into REALLY, REALLY STINK.  And I never hear the end of it from the hubby.

Just sprayed this about 15 seconds over litter box and the trash and POOF!  We all could breathe again when walking pass (at least for a little while).  But, just as with the furniture refresher, it did have that odd trace scent afterwards.  But as I said, it’s nothing compared to the stink.
