travel and indoor cats

when you have pets, travel can become a complicated and often expensive luxury. finding and paying high amounts to a boarding facility or counting on a friend or neighborhood kid comes with added brain damage.

if you are like many out there this holiday season, you will have some travel on the horizon. while i have many people lined up to check in on my cat friends and give them tons of love and attention whenever i travel, i also had some tricks up my sleeve to ensure that everything runs smoothly and i wanted to share those tips with you.

our favorite essentials for cat care while you are traveling

nutrish indoor cat food

providing your fur baby with essential nutrients is imperative. it's no secret that we have both been huge fans and supporters of nutrish since they started their cat food line. their food is exactly what our cats want to eat and provides them with the nutrishion (see what i did there?) they deserve. we also love nutrish because of how they give back and support the adoption of shelter pets. 

automatic pet feeder

this thing has been a life saver for us. even when we don't travel, it's nice to have one less thing to think about on a daily basis. this provides just the right amount of food for our cats on their schedule. they are fed and we are all happy. it's a win-win.

automatic water dispenser

this is another one that is a simple help to pet owners everywhere. my cats only ever want to drink fresh water and consistently getting them the fresh water that they want can be a lot of work. this helps to solve that problem and provides fresh water on a more regular basis without all of the work needed to consistently change out a water bowl. 


the more activities you have for your pets when you are not there, the less likely they are to destroy things that you leave behind. toys around the house provide entertainment for your kitties and help to keep them busy when you can't be there to play with them. 

self-cleaning litter box,  litter tray refills and anti-tracking litter mat

okay friends, these three things are a life-save every. single day. they are amazing. this cat little box is completely automatic. you buy the little boxes, you replace them when they are full and you throw the whole box away. no scooping, no bags, no kitty litter flying all over the place. it's amazing. on a monthly or bi-monthly basis, just change out the boxes. put a lid on the old box and toss it away. easy peasy. seriously. this one is worth your money.

hidden litter box bench

i love this one. no one wants to have to look at a kitty litter box. it's not exactly welcoming in your home. this is a simple way to hide that kitty litter box and have something that looks somewhat attractive in the home. 

a friend to stop in daily for back scratches and loves

a trusted friend or a neighborhood child is worth their weight in gold. "pet-sitting" is a fantastic first job for a sweet, trustworthy neighborhood child and they will usually go above and beyond to do a great job and prove their worth for countless jobs to come. i know our sweet neighborhood kids have spent extra time and energy than we ever imagined they would. they are treasures. when we are away, they are the perfect little people to shower our pets with love and affection and will be just what is needed for our fur babies to make it until we get home. 

....and then don't forget tons of snuggles to give when you return home......i swear, she loves me....but the catnip souvenirs we bring her home from our trips...those she loves more. lol!

rachael ray nutrish continues to give to rachael's rescue, an organization that was created for all the forgotten pets who may not have someone who loves them as much as they deserve. a portion of the proceeds from each sale of nutrish is donated to the rachael ray foundation which helps animals in need through rachael's rescue. through september of 2017, rachael's rescue has donated more than $21 million dollars to pet charities and other organizations that do good for animals. the funds are used for food, medical supplies, treatments and more for the animals in need. many more animals around the country need help, and through rachael's rescue, together we can make a difference in the lives of many four-legged friends.
