Cats who shop online can catch some bargains with Amazon Pet Profiles.

Maybe your cats can’t do their own shopping on Amazon… yet. But they can receive their own “purrsonalized”  recommendations and coupons with Amazon Pet Profiles.

The profiles could give the retailer an even larger share of the online pet supply market.

According to the most recent American Pet Product Association’s National Pet Owners Survey, Amazon had the lion’s share of online pet supply shoppers with 54 percent. Chewy.com, the retailer I thought was everybody’s favorite, was far behind Amazon, Petsmart.com and Walmart.com with just 18 percent.

The Best Buzz — Cats Say It’s Silver Vine Not Catnip

Forget the catnip. A new study shows silver vine is cats’ recreational herb of choice.

 

Most cats love catnip, but they love silver vine even more.

This cat is enjoying his catnip, but he’d probably enjoy silver vine even more.

As you’re thinking about your holiday shopping, consider this news from the Winn Feline Foundation: silver vine, not catnip, is cats’ recreational herb of choice. 

Researchers actually tested several mind-bending plants on 100 cats. Catnip made the cats happier than any of the others, but in the face off between silver vine and catnip, silver vine won paws down. Seventy-nine percent of the cats had the most fun with silver vine, while 68 percent really got off on catnip. Of the cats who didn’t respond to catnip, 71 per cent were turned on by silver vine.

Among the duds were honeysuckle and valerian root, which are popular substitutes for catnip when cautious humans are planning their cats’ recreational activities. Turns out they’re not at all popular among cats.
