Cosmic Catnip Bubble ShooterThe Cosmic Catnip Bubble shooter has been thoroughly tested in the kitty testing lab (aka my home). I have seen this type of bubble blower in the toy stores and find it an interesting idea and a great way to save on batteries. This one just does not quite work. The kids versions of course are being used outside not inside so it does not matter what kind of mess is being made. Inside the house that is a different matter entirely.

This drips bubble fluid profusely. Since the star is so small and cannot be grabbed or squeezed with only one hand there is no way to hold the lid under the nozzle to catch all the dripping liquid. I had a soaking wet knee by the time I was done playing with Piper (and I think her head was a bit wet too). The packaging shows it being held and used with one hand. Unless you have immense hand strength there is no way you are getting bubbles out of this toy with one hand. Even with two hands it is sometimes hard to get more than one bubble at a time.

Cosmic Catnip Bubble ShooterOne of my cats (Piper) simply adores bubbles and has even become very aware that this toy makes her prized bubbles. If I pick up the blower she will run over and wait for the bubbles to be made. However, we both soon became very frustrated with the lack of bubbles that come out of the blower (she is used to a battery operated blower – the noise does not bother her and she gets tons of bubbles without the mess), so this small shooter was a big disappointment for her and me.

Simply put, the amount of mess it makes combined with the difficulty in blowing the bubbles the toy is just not worth it. Sorry.

The Golden TwineI first discovered Kids Can Press through the book Binky Takes Charge. I am loving this graphic novel for kids format they’ve got going with these two titles. I hope they keep it up and give kids a good healthy attitude for the medium.

I also like the anime feel of the art without being overly anime. It just seems like when anime became popular EVERYONE started drawing in that style and, quite frankly, I have had enough of it for now. The Golden Twine has an interesting story that draws you right away and keeps your attention (always good when your dealing with kids). This is only book one and I am already looking for book two. I want more.

Book Description

To most, Suri is just an orphan in a traveling caravan. But Suri is determined to prove she has the mettle of a monster tamer. When she unknowingly takes something valuable from a caitsith — a cat monster — she will have to quickly harness her powers … if she even has them!

I'm a Dog, You're a Cat I really thought this book was just going to be another Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus book using stereotypical dogs are dumb, cats are distant types of statements. I was wrong (I know hard to believe me admitting that, huh). As a pet person I honestly did not want to like this book. I thought it would give bad images of cats and dogs by trying to lump them into human personality traits (and I am not very fond of some of them, but overall I enjoyed the book). It gives you a new way to look at relationships.

The book is less a battle of the sexes and more a merging of species. Very funny and insightful (reading the descriptions of dogs vs cats you can honestly say, “I’m like that” or “I know someone just like that”). Makes us think about ourselves, our partners, and our relationships.

Book Description

I’m a Dog, You’re a Cat is a short, delightfully humorous book filled with beautiful watercolor illustrations that highlight the sometimes quirky personality traits of felines and canines and how they mirror those of humans, especially as it relates to their interpersonal relations. Dog and cat owners who are in relationships will understand and appreciate the correlations and conclusions drawn from this unique comparison. How wonderful it would be if we were able to discover a new insight that helped us all communicate more effectively with the special people in our life. This book will help you identify if you are hard-wired more like a cat or a dog and how to understand that dog or cat in your life. By using a little humor to gain a deeper appreciation of your partner, you can begin to understand their behavior and how to react in those instances when you just don’t see eye to eye on things.

Dogs Delight Wheat Grass Kit I bought the Dog’s Delight Sprout & Grow Garden for my cats (because I think cats like to eat grass as much if not more than dogs – just sayin’). It is made by Dunecraft the makers of fun, educational products for kids. You can find the items any where online or in Toys R Us stores.

I was actually a little shock when I opened up the kit to find a very small package of wheat grass seeds inside. I think it was less than a gram and turned out to be only 8 seeds. I have grown wheat grass numerous times before and I knew there was no way in heck eight blades of grass would satisfy three kitties. So I called the company.

The guy I spoke with obviously has never grown wheat grass in any form let alone their actual product. He told me that multiple shoots would come off each seed (I know this not to be true, but did not feel like arguing at that point). So I planted the seeds. I had sprouts in a week. I trim them every day so I can see if they will spread. It has been almost three weeks now and no sign of additional shoots on any of the seeds.

You tell me does my wheat grass look anything like what the product packaging and website promised me it would?
