Pootie Pads are a product that arose because of the daily Pootie diaries here on Daily Kos — they were designed with the cats of Kossacks in mind. Made with love by myself and my sister, winglion, they are little quilts filled with human grade, organic catnip (the best we have ever found) from Oregon. All the fabrics are pre-washed before we use them so the pads are innocent of any toxic sizing or preservatives. Cats love them! The pads promote play — and also seem to have a soothing effect on anxious cats (making them the perfect liner for a cat carrier during travel). But why waste words? Here are some kitties to tell you about Pootie Pads:
Linkage, who does our website, wants more Pootie Pad pictures! Pictures with cats (or dogs) with our pads of all sizes...and our new cat toys, too. Testimonials are helpful, too. Here is one that was Kos Mailed to me recently:
I was lucky enough to have a Pootie Peace Pad gifted to me a few weeks ago. I have an elder male cat who seemed to have a hard time staying in one place; he would lay down on one of his spots for maybe 3 minutes, then get up and “mow” loudly and pace the apartment. It got to where I was getting concerned that he wasn’t getting enough rest. The humans weren’t sleeping much either, because this was going on 24/7.
Since he’s been sleeping on his Peace Pad, he’s been able to stay there for hours, either sleeping or that weird meditating thing they do with their paws tucked in. It seems to have helped his appetite too, which is great because he’s been losing weight.
I was surprised at the wonderful fragrance of the catnip and lavender in the pad, it smells like it was picked the day before; it almost smells like spearmint had been added. morgansmom
