- Drinkwell Running Water Pet Fountain for Dogs and Cats
MSRP $54.99 Cats & $69.99 Dogs
Pets love running water and by using a 5-inch falling stream of water, the Pet Fountain continually aerates your pet's water with healthful oxygen. A charcoal filter also removes bad tastes and odors, giving your pet the best possible (and most appealing way) to stay hydrated! Different models available for dogs and cats. It encourages water intake and proper hydration in healthy cats, and is especially beneficial in cats with kidney or urinary tract disease. In nature, moving water is much fresher than stagnant water. The movement constantly breaks the surface tension of the water and draws oxygen from the air into the water. This process is called aeration and it makes water more appealing to drink. Pets may be drawn by instinct to moving water for this reason. Developed and designed by a Veterinarian-see their web site above for all the details.
- WaterDog-Sonar Activated Outdoor Pet Fountain
Smart sonar sensing technology triggers the WaterDog to turn on when your pet approaches.and turns off the water when your pet leaves. Sonar proximity sensor will turn water on when your pet is within 3 feet. You'll never have to worry about what your dog's been drinking again! Operates unattended and "activates" the fresh stream of water when your pet approaches. Installs easily on any outdoor spigot/faucet without tools-30 day Money Back Guarantee. 4 "C" cell batteries required.

You'll love Pet Soup's original designs of many themed pet mats. From humorous "Feeding Mats" (Bruce displayed 2 styles today) placed under pets' eating/drinking dishes to matching designer cat litter mats with matching litter box (if you can't hide it-decorate it). Pet Soup has something for everyone and mats come in several sizes from small to very large.

- Sea Monkeys
Prices vary, most kits under $10
Sea Monkeys are "Dream Pets"-a true miracle of nature. Available in several different styles of themed kits (everything you need is included), you will love this unique aquatic pet! The Sea-Monkeys story began in 1960 as the brainchild of inventor and nature-lover Harold von Braunhut, and since have become a part of American culture and a worldwide phenomenon. The joy of watching Sea-Monkeys grow offers a lot more than just pure fun. It is one of the outstanding educational experiences of a lifetime, because the entire life-cycle of these unique creatures is fully recreated. Although Sea-Monkeys are a species of brine shrimp, they are unique. They not only unlocked the most elusive secrets of their life cycle, they created new formulas to keep them alive under conditions found in the average home-an accomplishment never before achieved! Sea-Monkeys are in no way harmful to humans or the environment. See their site for all the details & products.
