Bunk Bed and Playroom for Cats

Your cat’s favorite activities are playing and sleeping. They can do both in great comfort and security in the SmartCat Bootsie’s Bunk Bed and Playroom.

After a vigorous workout batting around the 2 included spring-action toys, your pet can sack out on the top bunk for a nice nap or slip inside the secluded dual-entry hideaway for relaxing privacy.

The included quilted pad provides a comfortable spot to sleep, and the top of the heavy-duty wood unit is made for scratching. Assembles easily with no tools necessary.

Peek-a-Prize Pet Toy Box

Cats love to poke and prod around cracks and crevices, especially when they know something tasty or fun is hiding just out of their sight. The SmartCat Peek-a-Prize Toy Box helps encourage your cat’s natural predatory habits by partially hiding some of her favorite toys.

Your pet will have a great time fishing them out, especially during long daytime hours when you’re at work and your kitty is home alone. Keeps indoor cats mentally and physically sharp. You can drop almost any appropriately sized cat toy inside the box. Or if your pet is motivated by food, drop a few treats inside for her to catch and eat.

iPod Cat

Shhh..... Can't you see I'm trying to sleep?

Chevy the tomcat, enjoying some tunes on his iPod while trying to take a nap. The animals in my house live a rough life, huh?

This was one of the first shots I took with my new iPhone 4. I have to say, I'm impressed with the new camera. It is a HUGE improvement over the old one.

Ragamuffin cats

The Ragamuffin is a breed of domestic cat that first made its appearance in 1994. Ragamuffins are notable for their friendly personalities and thick, rabbitlike fur.

Ragamuffins are a muscular, heavy breed of cat not reaching full maturity until approximately four years of age. The physical traits of the breed include a rectangular, broad-chested body with shoulders supporting a short neck. The head is a broad, modified wedge with a rounded forehead and a nose dip. Ragamuffins come in all coat colors and patterns with a medium-length coat that increases in length toward the stomach. Although the coat is thick and plush, it does not readily mat or clump and is easy to care for. Ragamuffins are bred to be sociable, intelligent, affectionate, cuddly companions that are playful throughout their lives.

The head is a broad, modified wedge with a rounded appearance. The forehead should be moderately rounded. The body should appear rectangular with a broad chest and broad shoulders and moderately heavy muscling in the hindquarters, with the hindquarters being equally broad as the shoulders. There should be a fatty pad (omentum) in the lower abdomen. Fur length is to be slightly longer around the neck and outer edges of the face, resulting in the appearance of a ruff, and increasing in length from the top of the head down through the shoulder blades and back, with the coat on the sides and stomach being medium to medium long. Every color and pattern is allowable, with or without white. Some colors patterns, such as pure white, are rarer than others and are generally in greater demand.
