Hi all,

I thought it would be kind of fun to start a thread where everyone can post their must-have's and favorite things for their babies! Could be a favorite food or treat to clothing, toys, etc...pretty much anything :BigSmile:.

Since I'm a newbie, I don't have any favorites yet other than the laser pointer. Good fun (and exercise) for Lilo!

Gleek loves his feather teasers. I buy him a new one at each show we go to.

Favorite litter box: a rubbermaid tote. The sides are higher than a regular litter box, but still easy for the cats to get in and out of.

Litter: Right now I am using Nature's miracle. the cats and I like it, but unfortunately I can't find it in this area.

Food: Taste of the Wild, wet and dry

Toy: a knitted mouse with beads inside that make noise

tree: amarkat. Their prices are excellent and the trees come in all sorts of heighs. Ours is 5"8 so the same height as me :)

So, I see several people on here have Sleepypods....if you have the round ones, are they awkward to carry?? I have been looking at these online but they're quite pricey and am curious if they are awesome :ThumbsUp:.

Love, love , love the sleepypod!!! It isn't hard to carry at all. Nofuratu gave us the heads up on this one. It has ballistic (bullet proof) grade material, 5 star crash tested, lots of accessories (heated pad etc.), it also doubles as a cat bed on the go. They are pricey but Nudie safe in a car accident-Priceless!

Well I want a carrier that is airline-approved as well...apparently only the mini-size Sleepypod's will fit under airplane seats...but I'm not sure if that will be big enough for her even when she's full grown. Having a hard time finding measurements/weight limits for the mini...might just have to contact the manufacturer.

The mini can fit a cat no bigger than 7lbs. 11"x9" nis the inside measurement

Roobas would die without his plush blanket and cat tree...And his new-found love catnip! He seriously goes nuts for the it! If we let him, he will eat it straight from the jar! For some reason he hates all cat treats (?).

Pedda can't live without Pounce, Greenies, and her Sunbeam electric throw. The list for her mommy would be different though.

:LOL::LOL: Don't know if they would, they'd be fighting for all the best warm spots!!!

I also forgot Mummys bed at bedtime! I have an electric blanket that at the moment I have on for at least an hour before I go to bed, so Smeagol always comes to bed with mummy!!

OMG, Pooner`s clothes and hats are soooooo beautiful ! Do you make them yourself ?

Frodo`s must have:

blankets,
soft carpets - he loves rolling on them, I put a new one in the bathroom today and he is very pleased,
his very own Animal Planet channel - two vivs with poison dart frogs, he loves watching it and knocking his paw on the glass
windowsill with a blanket
crinkly tunnel, I actually bought one for small animals (ferrets, bunnies) on sale and he likes it better to the normal size one, it is something about confined spaces I guess
a new toy every week, preferably with catnip - he gets bored easily with new toys :Hysterical:
