Approximately 3.4 million cats enter shelters every year, looking for new forever homes.
Many of those are young cats, born during spring “kitten season”. Accordingly, June is National Adopt a Cat Month, a great time to welcome a friendly feline into your house. The cat gets the unique gift of a loving home; you get the unique gifts of the unconditional affection a pet brings.
It may be warm now, but cold weather will be here before you know it. This outdoor cat shelter, excusive to Hammacher Schlemmer, has an integrated heater that keeps felines warm and comfy in cool temperatures. A removable 20-watt heater beneath the shelter’s floor generates gentle radiant heat. The floor is waterproof and lined with soft foam, providing a comfortable, dry surface for cats to lounge.
This scratching post satisfies a feline’s instincts to scratch and hunt, while providing endless entertainment for you. The device projects a red laser dot that darts across the floor in unpredictable patterns, inciting even indifferent cats to play. The laser toy is mounted atop a post wrapped in thick sisal yarn on a soft felt-covered base, giving felines a more attractive alternative to scratch and relieve frustration than your fine furniture.
This unique gift is truly one of a kind, and it indulges the primeval jungle instincts that make cats so intriguing. This hand-crafted natural treehouse requires more than 100 individual cuts and 16 hours to build. It’s made from a mature dragonwood tree harvested from sustainable forests in Florida and Georgia. The tree is left in its natural state – gnarled branches, bark, lichen and all – with plywood platforms custom-cut to fit its unique contours. Realistic silk foliage provides concealment felines naturally crave and the base of the trunk is wrapped in sisal cord to serve as a scratching post.
When you adopt your new pet, please make sure the cat has been spayed or neutered. With 3.4 million cats looking for homes each year, that’s already quite enough.
