Moderncat Holiday Give-a-thon: Win a Smart Cat Box & Ant Free Pet Bowl

Tue, Dec 14, 2010

Feeding, Giveaways, Litter & Hygiene

Today we have a special bonus give-a-thon prize package with two really useful products! First is the Smart Cat Box, one of my preferred litter boxes. This special system uses a two-part box. The top portion has slots in the floor that allow liquids to drain into a covered tray below. Simply scoop solids from the top and empty the tray as needed. The Smart Cat Box uses natural safflower seeds as the litter, a completely biodegradable and renewable resource. This system is excellent for cats with health issues that may require frequent urine testing. I have one cat who uses this box exclusively.

The second part of this prize package is a new find, the Ant Free Pet Bowl. If you have ever had problems with ants, especially if you feed feral cats outdoors, then you know that creating a water moat can be a solution, since ants can’t crawl across water, but this can get messy if food falls into the water. The Ant Free Pet Bowl has a large upper lip that helps prevent food from getting into the water below. The heavy weight high quality porcelain keeps the bowl in place, plus it’s non-porous, non-toxic, and dishwasher-safe. There are two sizes to choose from.

The winner of this give-a-thon will get a Smart Cat Box Starter Kit plus either a small or large Ant Free Pet Bowl, plus the same will be sent to the winner’s charity of choice. To enter, please leave a comment on this post with the name of the charity you’d donate the second set to. The winner will be announced on Christmas Eve along with all the other give-a-thon winners.
