While getting some Tidy Cats litter and a couple of other goodies at Petsmart the human spotted this booklet with treat and toy coupons.

Most expire 12/31 but some are good until January and March 2014.

Some good deals could be had with these coupons on BF pricing, but because it’s so late now, we figure it’s a mute point to make a full matchup.

We would make sure to grab a couple of these, as they make for cheap toys and treats somewhere down the road!

Here’s a full list of the coupons

$1/2 Milkbone, Pup-Peroni, or Milos kitchen steak grillers dog treats exp 12/29/13

$1/1 Dentastix dog treats 32 ct exp 12/31/13

Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and hopefully your humans gave you some special treats in the process!!

We are not sure yet if we are going to send out the human today. We will be happy if she crawls out of bed at a reasonable time to feed us before we starve to death!

We will also make sure (loud and clear!!) that either male or female human understands the feeding requirement! If need be, we will even make use of our paws!!

BUT if you are going to send out your humans shopping, here’s the links to the Petsmart and UPDATED Petco Deals again!!!

Back to regular scheduled catnapping!

Happy Thanksgiving to all our friends with two paws, four paws and even those with fins!!


Here are some tips how you humans out there can keep your pets safe during Thanksgiving:


  • If you are going to have a bunch of guests over for Thanksgiving, your pets could get overwhelmed with the change and noise. If you can set up a room with your pet’s favourite items so that he or she can get away from the party if it becomes too much.
  • A safe room can also protect your pet from escaping out of the front door when it is repeatedly opened and closed for guests.
  • If visitors bring their own pets over, do the introductions slowly and with supervision.


  • Do not feed your pet poultry bones, as they can splinter and get caught in the throat or cause perforations further down in the digestive tract.
  • It is wise to stick to your pets usual diet, as high fat foods such as gravy, liver, kidney, or giblets can cause an upset stomach, and could even trigger pancreatitis.
  • Onions in gravy or stuffing can be poisonous to both dogs and cats. Sage can be very upsetting to a cat’s system if ingested.
  • Don’t offer your pet raw or undercooked turkey, it may contain salmonella bacteria. Meat that sits out at room temperature for too long can contain salmonella and should be avoided.
  • Raw bread dough is not a treat! According to ASPCA experts, when raw bread dough is ingested, an animal’s body heat causes the dough to rise in his stomach. As it expands, the pet may experience vomiting, severe abdominal pain and bloating, which could become a life-threatening emergency, requiring surgery.


  • Consider an alternative to using holiday candles. Your pet could knock them over, and could get burned or start a fire.
  • Place floral gifts in a separate area away from your pet, until you know for sure if they are cat or dog safe. Many plants, such as the lily, are toxic to cats or dogs. Here is a link for more poisonous plants: http://www.aspca.org/pet-care/animal-poison-control/toxic-and-non-toxic-plants


The best tip of all: If you have room in your heart and home to adopt a homeless kitty or doggy as a permanent family member, what a wonderful way to show your compassion and love! Here’s a link to our buddies over at Meowness that would love to be furever home for the pawlidays!

Pictured is our friend Olivia, who has already found her furever home, but with so many homeless dogs and cats out there, we are sure the purrfect friend is waiting for you at one of the many rescue organisations in the valley.




petco bf antlers

Petco has  had their Black Friday ad out for a while on their site now.

The ad does not really state any prices, but a lot of items are 50% off, such as dog beds, cat scratchers and litter boxes for example.

So we may send the human to see if this will be a good option to spend our Palsrewards, that we have been saving!

They also have Acquatic supplies, reptile supplies, dog toys, pet beds and a bunch of other items 50% off

Our favourite store manager has been hinting that there may be surprises in store the day of BF, but we are not sure if we will be sending the human out on Friday,

as the deals will go through December 1st! And we are not too keen on her bringing home those antlers, as we all know who will get to wear those in the end….!!


You can find your ad here! (You may have to change your zipcode though)

While at it, don’t forget to grab your FREE Purina Dog or Cat food and FREE Friskies OR Fancy Feast or FREE Friskies!
