Cat Dreams - The Purrfect Christmas Present for Cats
Cat Dreams might just be the perfect Christmas gift for your little furry ones. I know my cats love to watch the TV and the computer too whenever there are wildlife shots. Dolcippi has her own particular favourite bird video on Youtube and often insists on watching it. (Thus putting a stop to all of my creative endeavours!) The advert for Foxy Bingo is interesting enough to entice Max away from his food. (Though why a cartoon fox should so fascinate a hungry Persian cat is beyond me.) Bugs on TV always catch Amberleigh's attention, so anything with crickets, butterflies and grasshoppers is very welcome in our house. So what about Cat Dreams a new cat movie with eight layers of sound and plenty of cool garden action?
The nicest thing about this video is that it covers all regions. So whether you buy it for your Canadian KittyPie, your British Pussykins or your Aussie Moggy, you won't have to worry about whether it will play. If you have a cat that sleeps all day long and howls and bounces off the furniture for half the night (hello Oliver, I am talking about you sweetie!) this video might help. Mr Olly Purr could watch it with you in the daytime and it will keep him awake at least, rushing around at best. Then, Hey Presto, mummy's first decent night's sleep in a year!
The only thing that has me really worried is the idea that people might leave it on loop while they are out. Knowing that cats will hit the screen, try and go behind the TV or even hop on top of it actually frightens me. Imagine leaving it on loop while you go shopping only to return and find the house on fire or an electrocuted cat behind the TV set? No way! My cats watch their wildlife videos under supervision. I get to laugh at their antics and if things get too frantic I can switch it off.
Cat safety is really important, would you leave your toddler alone watching TV? No? Then consider very carefully whether it is safe to leave your cats home alone with such a stimulating video! Of course, if you have a wall mounted set and an RCD device that will cut out in the event of something unforeseen, then go for it by all means. Make sure the area underneath your TV is safe, nothing that might hurt a leaping cat, and it should be fine.
Videos and DVDs for pets are nothing new and there is a large selection, but the following three come highly recommended by kitty mums and dads who have recorded hours of endless pleasure - and that is just the fun of watching their cats in action!
Mewvie episode 1 is by an independent producer and features 90 minutes of catertainment. Kitty can enjoy bugs, mice, birds, squirrels and even a bouncy Chinchilla!
Mewvie for Cats who love Birds
This is for the bird lovers in your house. A special enticement of meals on wings in their natural state, just for your furbaby to watch and enjoy!
Two hours of video catnip expressly for bird lovers! If your kitty is fascinated by meals on wings, as my Dolcippi is, I can wholeheartedly recommend this. Expect all sorts of exploration antics as your cat tries to find the birds.
Interactive video for cats and cat lovers
Yes, you can choose the parts kitty loves best. Full of fascinating critters!
Produced in 2006, this was one of the first cat DVDs and has the advantage of being interactive, so you can choose the critters your kitty loves best. It has an alternative soundtrack for relaxing humans too.
This is Dolcippi's favourite. We have spent many a happy hour with her sitting on the computer keyboard while this plays. She often goes behind the screen to look for the birds!
