Amazon Canada: 67% Off Petmate Pet Carrier – Now $27.69

Posted by on July 23, 2014 at 11:00 PM

Amazon Canada: 67% Off Petmate Pet Carrier   Now $27.69

Amazon Canada is selling the Petmate Curvations Top Load 19 inch pet carrier for $27.69, originally $82.49.

The pet carrier has both a top zippered mesh door and a metal front door, which allows easy entry or exit for your pets from whichever angle. While small dogs might prefer the front door, I know many cats (like mine) are not keen on going through that door into a dark cave. Some cats would prefer to just be placed in the carrier through the top. This gives you the option of either. It also makes your pet easily accessible at all times. The design has lots of small side holes for ventilation and viewing. In addition, the top mesh provides extra ventilation for your pet. The carrier features a solid plastic base for strength and stability with a steel front door and secure latch. The top half is softer, almost fabric-like according to one reviewer, but still holds its shape well. To this top is secured the zippered top opening and an adjustable padded shoulder strap for transporting.

For anyone who cares about esthetics, this carrier is also rather nice looking. The fabric-like material has a very pretty black and white pattern on it that certainly looks better than any carrier I have ever owned. The carrier assembles via nuts and bolts, so I suggest having a couple tools handy to make assembly easier (tools not necessary but helpful). Just be careful not to over-tighten the bolts or you risk cracking the plastic.

Most reviewers are super happy with their purchase. One reviewer said:

Overall, I HIGHLY recommend this carrier! It met all my needs, was not too expensive, and it’s cute! Can’t ask for more!

While some reviewers have found it difficult to assemble, another reviewer commented that:

I just purchased this carrier from petco for $31.00. It was easy to assemble. However the wingnuts did give my fingers a workout but wasn’t a problem for me, just adding it as a side note.

Since you will only have to assemble the pet carrier once, the finger workout should not be a deterrent. The carrier is very attractive, appears to be well built, and has that extra convenient feature of a second door. As the carrier costs over $25, it will ship for free to your house from Amazon Canada.

Amazon Canada: 66% to 70% Off Cat Scratching Boards

Amazon Canada: 66% to 70% Off Cat Scratching Boards

Cat got claws? Then you need a good scratching board and maybe more than one. Amazon Canada is offering up to 70% off two lovely Go Pet Club scratching boards for your cat.

The first scratchboard I wanted to bring to your attention is this so darn cute Go Pet Club CP003 Cat Scratching Board House Style. It is like a little blue house for your cat with two open doors shaped like little cats. The top and inside of the house are made of corrugated cardboard so your cat can scratch away. As this is a house style scratching board, your cat may also like to sleep and play inside. Some catnip is included with your purchase to help your cat adjust to their new domain. Originally $45, the board house is now $13.36.

Next on the list of fun little scratching boards for your cat is this Go Pet Club CP015 Cat Scratching Board Bed in Leopard Print. Instead of a house, this time the board is shaped like a bed. Your cat can both sleep in their new toy, and use it to file down their nails. This would be great for any small living space like an apartment or studio because the scratching board plays double-duty. As with the above house, this bed also comes with some catnip to entice your cat into using their new toy. Originally $65, the bed is now on sale for $22.49.

So far both scratching boards have excellent reviews (except for one that came missing a part). A reviewer of the scratching bed said:

4 paws for this scratching bed. The quality is excellent and look very good. My cats love it so much that I had to by 3 more because I have 4 cats and they all wants to be on it. They love it so much that they sleep on it. To every cat lover you will not regret it.

My cat loves to scratch his current scratching post and I am sure he would be thrilled if we bought him either of these; but I am not convinced he could fit through either of the doors on the house: he is rather fat. I think the scratching bed would be really great for him and might keep him off the furniture.

Walmart Canada: Maxx Scoop 14 KG Cat Litter $12.98

Posted by on April 27, 2014 at 12:30 PM

Walmart Canada: Maxx Scoop 14 KG Cat Litter $12.98

Walmart Canada has rolled back prices on Maxx Scoop 14KG containers of cat litter. Originally $15.98, the cat litter price has been reduced to $12.97. There are two varieties available.

I price compared with good ol’ Petsmart, which tends to be my go to place for cat litter. These 14KG (30.9 LB) containers of cat litter cost $17.49 from Petsmart Canada. So, you may only be saving a couple dollars off of Walmart’s usual price, but if you usually shop at Petsmart you are saving $4.50 off their usual price.

Litter is one of the biggest expenses of owning a cat, so discounts like this are very helpful. I’m not sure about your feline, but some cats are super picky about the type of litter that they do their business in. We use MAXX Scoop mainly, though I have tried other brands, and our cat seems most happy with this brand. It also seems to do a really good job of controlling odour. I just find it doesn’t last nearly as long as I wish it would.

With Walmart you get free shipping on every order, even heavy boxes of litter.

You can also find the Kyjen Bottle Buddies Penguin discounted from $8.49, now only $3.26. He is one of those add on items that cannot ship by itself as is the Kyjen Ball Buddy Santa that was $8.99 and is now $4.36.

Pet Freebie: Free Can of Royal Canin Cat Food

Posted by on April 11, 2014 at 12:30 PM

Pet Freebie: Free Can of Royal Canin Cat Food

If you have a cat, or just like freebies, check this one out for a can of Royal Canin cat food.

Getting your freebie is easy and of course I already did it. You have to choose what kind of food you need for your cat or kitten, then enter your information. Considering this freebie is on Facebook, you’ll probably need an account. I have two senior cats, and while they didn’t have a specific senior cat food, I chose the spayed and neutered brand, as that usually means they’ll get a little larger and slower.

You can also choose between weight gain, skin and coat support, active cats, new kittens and older kittens. Once you enter in your info, you’ll get a coupon for your free can.

I normally feed my cats hard food, but as they get older, they might like the wet food better as it isn’t as hard on their aging teeth. I know one of my cats devours the wet food in sauce, as they call it, but my other can take it or leave it. This is a great time to try this brand and see if they like it. Royal Canin is definitely a well-known name brand in cat and dog nutrition.

Amazon Canada: Up to 42% off Greenies Dog Treats

Amazon Canada has put the canister size of Greenies dog treats on sale for up to 42% off for lovers of dogs, dog treats, and good oral hygiene.

The canisters are your best buy to begin with as it is generally better value to buy in bulk as you get more treats for your money. With the canisters of treats now being on sale, they are an even better deal! Here are the four canisters of Greenies you have to choose from:

I don’t have much experience with these for dogs, but my cat absolutely loves the Greenies for cats. I don’t buy them for him enough because he goes absolutely nuts over them and molests the cat treat container.

These treats are supposed to be very good for pet oral hygiene and they are approved by the Veterinary Oral Health Council.

Get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.

Note: the expiry says the 9th on Amazon but this is an error. It should say the 16th.

Petcetera Canada: Free $25 Gift Card with $50+

Posted by on March 7, 2014 at 3:00 PM

Petcetera Canada: Free $25 Gift Card with $50+

My favourite pet deal is back on again for a couple of weeks.  When you spend $50 or more on almost anything at Petcetera in stores, you will get a free $25 gift card to be used on future purchases.

I said this is on almost anything because it does have some exclusions.  It excludes the purchase of gift cards, services or adoptions, but anything else you buy will get you this free gift card.

Additionally, unlike some deals from stores, the gift card has no expiry date and you can use it on any future purchases with absolutely no minimum charge required. This is perfect because you can save up a few of them if you want to and go on a great little pet shopping spree when you have a few of them.

The best way to take advantage of this deal is by splitting up your purchases if you are spending $100 or more. When you do this, you will get a gift card with each $50 purchase, or you can head in a few times during this week to get more than one gift card. For example, instead of spending $100 in one order and getting one $25 gift card for free, you can going twice and spend $50 each time and you will get two $25 gift cards.

If you are lucky, some locations will allow you to split your order and pay separately so that you wont have to go in separate times. I have done this a few times but it is up to the retailer if they want to allow this or not. Either way, it is best to do separate orders to get more gift cards.

Walmart Canada: Cat Litter Deals

Posted by on February 19, 2014 at 4:30 PM

Walmart Canada: Cat Litter Deals

Walmart Canada has a bunch of cat litter on sale and clearance that will save you money on scooping up after your furry friend.

I found the following deals:

I’m currently using the MAXX litter for my cat and this is a pretty good price since it seems like one is always going through litter. I have never tried the Fresh Step litter which seems like a higher quality litter given the original price. 20lbs converts over to around 9kg so you are getting a slightly better price on the MAXX but the quality of the Fresh Step may be better. I included the deal on the natural litter in there. I know several people who use natural litter. I admire them because it is a higher expense but much better for the environment.

Shipping is free from Walmart Canada.

Petcetera Canada: $25 Gift Card with $50+

Posted by on February 18, 2014 at 4:30 PM

Petcetera Canada: $25 Gift Card with $50+

Just last week Petcetera had a store wide deal and this week is another one.  Get a $25 gift card when you spend $50 or more on most purchases.

The deal last week had you spending $75 or more to save yourself $25 so this deal is much better in my mind especially if you don’t want to spend as much.

This deal has the same exclusions every time it is on.  It excludes the purchase of gift cards, services or adoptions, but anything else you buy will get you this free gift card. The gift card has no expiry date and you can use it on any future purchases with absolutely no minimum charge required.

I have mentioned before the best way to take advantage of this deal.  Make sure to split up your purchases if you are spending $100 or more.  When you do this, you will get a gift card with each $50 purchase, or you can head in a few times during this week to get more than one gift card.  Some locations will allow you to split your order and pay separately but some will not, it is the luck of the draw I guess.

I like to stock up on items such as dog food and treats because they can really add up. If you don’t have dogs like I do, they also offer food, accessories, toys and many other items for cats, birds, fish, reptiles, bunnies, hampsters and many other animals.

Petcetera Canada: $25 Off $75+

Posted by on February 14, 2014 at 8:00 PM

Petcetera Canada: $25 Off $75+

For just three days only, you will be able to save at Petcetera.  Save $25 on orders of $75 or more in stores.

They have had this deal in the past but usually you need to have a coupon to get it.  Also, when they have had it in the past, you ended up getting a $25 savings card for future purchases but this time the $25 savings will be automatic on your current order which is great!

To get this deal, your minimum purchase must be $75 before taxes, excluding adoptions, services and gift cards. You can stock up on pet food, pet toys, clothing and accessories or any other pet supplies you may need.  I have two big dogs so I will be taking advantage of this offer by stocking up on dog food for them since it can be quite expensive.

It doesn’t actually say how many times you can do this but it is usually once per person per day.  I suggest if you have a big order to split it up into two different shopping trips.  That way if you are spending $150, you can save $50 total instead of just $25. This will get you the biggest bang for your buck.  The other thing you could do is shop with a friend and split your order that way still getting the two discounts instead of just one.

Amazon Canada: Pet Gear Rolling Backpack Carrier Only $76 (Was $110+)

Posted by on February 12, 2014 at 12:30 PM

Amazon Canada: Pet Gear Rolling Backpack Carrier Only $76 (Was $110+)

Need to get your dog or cat somewhere and don’t have a carrier? Check out this deal at Amazon on the Pet Gear I-Go2 plus traveler rolling backpack carrier for cats and dogs, now only $75.99, was $108.03. I price compared this carrier to other Canadian retailers and could only find it at any other Canadian sources. But, at the U.S. online retailers like Petsmart it was over $120 and it sold for $90 at Amazon.com, so this is definitely a great deal.

Sort of like a little, breathable suitcase for your pet, it has a telescoping handle and wheels so you can roll it along to your destination. You can also use it as a backpack, tote or car seat. It has a hard shell on the outside and a removable plush pad on the inside. It is ideal for pets up to 25 pounds.

Pet Gear also has other items on sale right now on Amazon, for larger dogs too. This portable soft crate is great for dogs and cats up to 70lbs. I really hope there is not a domestic cat that is 70lbs! It was $159.49, now $110.17.

If your up to 60lb animal doesn’t like to walk, because you know, they are too posh, push them around in this AT3 Generation 2 all terrain pet stroller in blue sky. Was $257.49, now $192.39.

When you spend $25, Amazon ships your items to you for free.
