Songmics Cat Tree and Activity centre

When I moved into my new flat I knew with two crazy cats I needed to get them a really good activity centre. My new living room is huge and with a nice little empty space in a corner I thought they would really like a nice tall activity centre. My cats are crazy at the best of times so they really needed something to keep themselves occupied.

After looking around a lot of places and reading reviews I came across this songmics one.

the reviews I read were promising and I thought it looked like a good bet. When it arrived it was in a massive box and was too heavy to carry so it was best to unpack it where it was. It was all in pieces and I thought it could take me all day. I put an afternoon aside and built it. It didn't take as long as I expected it to and I managed to assemble it myself on my own with no problems at all. Once it was up I was really impressed, it looked great quality and appeared to be strong and sturdy.

I have had cat towers before that have been really flimsy and literally lasted a few weeks. It's a year later and this tower and activity centre is still going strong. Both of my cats use it, one of them really likes the little condo and the other prefers the top perch.

Here they are both enjoying it. They have both made use of the dangly ball toys and surprisingly have both used the scratching posts. There is just a tiny bit of wear on the faux fur trim beneath the top perch but that was where madam decided to destroy it. It hasn't affected it at all and a year later it's still just as sturdy and hasn't been flimsy or fallen apart at all.
My two are quite big cats and both aged three years and still fit on it easilly. my girl is quite heavy and she manages to use it without it wobbling or breaking. So it is perfect for any aged cat from kitten to adult and even seniors. I would highly recommend it as it has proven to be a good buy, slightly more expensive then some cheaper options but you get what you pay for. Cheaper ones would have needed replacing by now, whereas this is still going strong.

Fur Magic Pet hair remover brush

I don't know about you but my pets have all had such a heavy moult this year. It has been one of the worst moulting seasons I've known.
I was finding I was having to hoover two to three times a day just to stay ontop of it all and seemed to forever be trying to brush down the sofa and the bed. Two lapcats who both sleep on the bed you can just imagine what my bed sheets looked like. When either one of them sat on my lap I was covered with a layer of white and tabby fur.

Then someone mentionned the Fur Magic. I was at my wits end and was willing to try anything.

So off I went and purchased one of these new inventions I'd never heard about. Even the day it came i was sceptical but excited. The best place to test it out was the bed. I was impressed, a few small brushes and the fur was gone, it really was like magic. The brush itself sits in its cleaning holder, it is a little stiff to pull out at first. Then all you do is brush in the direction of the arrow and hey presto, to clean it off just pop it back into the holder and it comes out clean and ready to use again. 
Onces it's full the collected fur sits at the bottom and around the bottom edges 
It is so easy to clean out, I just tip the loose fur into the bin. Sometimes it does accumulate in the holder but I've found a old toothbrush cleans it out really effectively. Now I use this fur magic on my bed everynight before bed and brush down the sofas whenever its needed. It also came with a really handy miniature version to use on clothes which is brilliant and just as effective, as lets face it there's nothing worse then going out wearing a nice layer of cat fur.
This has been effective with both dog (Labrador) and cat fur. I really cannot recommend it enough.
