What is a Velcro Cat and How to Handle It

Introducing the velcro cat! This is the type of cat that will give you LOTS of affection and attention. They broke the stereotypical cat personality of being aloof and indifferent. 

Velcro cats will follow you everywhere you go -- even to the bathroom. They will deliberately put themselves on top of your computer when you are working. You will always catch them staring at you or meowing while you are preparing to leave the house. And because they always want to be with you, they may refuse to eat when you are not around. 

Although it is nice to have a cat that seems devoted to you, it may also mean that something is amiss, and it could be a bit troubling over time. What if your kitty becomes too much to handle?

Difference between a clingy cat and a friendly cat

First, let us draw the line between a friendly cat and a clingy cat to check if your pet is turning into a velcro type.

Your cat licks or kneads you sometimes.Your cat always licks or kneads you whenever she wants.

Two types of a clingy cat

There are two "breeds" of a velcro cat: the needy cat and the demanding cat. We've mentioned above the characteristics of a needy cat when we compared it to a friendly cat. How about a finicky cat? Here are the signs that you have one:

9 Signs that your cat is clingy

Now let us dive deeper into the workings of a velcro cat. If you experienced four or more of the scenarios below, congratulations (?) you have a clingy cat:

  1. You've lost count on how many times you've tripped over your cat.
  2. You are always cautious when you walk around your house to avoid stepping on your cat.
  3. Your cat repeatedly kneads or scratches you to get attention.
  4. Your cat goes on a hunger strike if you are not at home.
  5. You are always sharing your bed with your cat, or is it the other way around?
  6. They will get restless when you sit on a different chair.
  7. Your cat will cling to you whenever she gets a chance.
  8. You will find yourself petting your cat always.
  9. Your cat is always rushing towards you whenever you leave the house and will demand you to stay.

Why is your cat so clingy?

At first, you've thought it is cute, but later on, you will realize how distressing it is for both of you. As much as you want to be there for your cat, it is not possible. You still have to go to work or school or run some errands inside and outside the house. 

But why is your cat clingy in the first place?  Is it somehow your fault because you are spoiling her? You are letting her do whatever she wants. You let them bother you and even reward their needy behavior with treats, scratches, or belly rubs.

However, if it is nothing like that, then maybe it is inherent or a medical condition? It is possible that she was separated from her mom too early, and now she thinks you are her true "mother." Another reason is she is a foster kitty that is in constant search of her forever home.

It is also possible that she has a medical issue. Since they cannot verbally tell you she is not feeling well, they will show you through their clingy behavior. Or your cat is only bored. Yup, it isn't because of a medical condition or trauma. Your cat is just B-O-R-E-D.

Cats are complicated. 

How to handle a clingy cat

Here are the "home remedies" to tackle your cat's velcro ways:

If the solutions above didn't work out, you and your cat must visit the vet to seek medical attention because she might not be feeling well.

5 Biggest Trends in the Pet Industry in 2020

The future is bright for the pet industry, not just this year but also in the coming years. In 2018, the estimated global growth of the pet industry was around $190.1 billion. By 2025, it is foreseen that it would reach a staggering $269.9 billion! Yup, no one can stop pet owners from spoiling their precious fur babies.

The 5% CAGR (Compound Annual Growth Rate) to 2025 might be an impossible feat, but this could happen in the mere future with the thriving online pet market. The convenience and comfort that the online pet market offers is welcoming, unlike the brick-and-mortar model. Pet owners can compare prices and read reviews online before buying necessities for their pets. Customers can make informed choices without leaving their homes and purchase items with a click of a button.

Moreover, it seems the pet industry never wanes when it comes to new gimmicks and inventions to keep patrons hooked for years to come. Here are the hottest trends in the pet industry that made noise this year:

Pet Humanization

It adds new meaning to  "pets are family." As defined by Small Business Labs, pet humanization (or anthropomorphism) is a trend "whereby pet owners treat their pets like children and are highly receptive to products similar to the ones they use for themselves." 

And based on the report of Household and Pet Care CPG, the Asia-Pacific market currently dominates this area. It is expected to increase to $384 billion by 2023, which beats the projection we've mentioned above. Moreover, it might surpass the fashion & apparel and health & beauty categories by 2023. That is how popular this trend is.

Examples of pet humanization practices are advanced veterinary procedures like chemotherapy and MRIs. Using omega 3s in pet supplements. And allowing pets to stay in hotel rooms and purchasing designer pet supplies.

Pet Insurance

Sometimes the medical needs of a pet are more costly than their owners. Hence, the proliferation of the pet insurance industry. According to a 2017 report, more than 2 million pet owners invested in insurance for their pets. It works the same way as health insurance for humans.

The typical pet health policies don't cover routine care medications such as vaccinations, spaying or neutering, annual exams, and pre-existing conditions. Instead, it covers incidents, injuries, allergies, digestive issues, infections, and cancer.

Pet insurance has an age limit between 6 and 10 weeks to be able to get a plan. Unfortunately, if your pet has breed-specific conditions, it may increase your pet insurance cost. In the US, the monthly average premium for a dog is $15.84 to $44.67. On the other hand, cats' premium may cost $12.72 to $27.93. But take note that this is a 2017 estimate. Better consult a pet insurance advisor to know the latest monthly premium.

Organic and High-grade Pet Foods

Pet owners don't want to settle with less when it comes to pet foods. Traditional pet foods are out; organic pet foods are in. Based on a Forbes report, consumers are "opting for more fresh, frozen, and made-to-order diets for their pets." They only want to purchase pet foods with high-grade and healthy ingredients.

Why do pet owners prefer such an expensive dish? As reported by Kerry Group, a public food company, their survey revealed that pet owners believed that "high-quality pet foods are effective in preventive health care...and could prevent specific health issues."

"Lickable" treats and wet pet foods also gained popularity this year. In the recent Global Pet Expo, pet food concessionaires showcased their products, such as frozen treats, mousse textured supplements, and bone broths.

Pet Gadgets

Gizmos for your pets? Why not? Today, it isn't only pet microchips getting the rave reviews. There are also other types of pet technology worth exploring. One of which is pet monitoring systems that function as baby monitors where you can watch when you are outside your home for work or errands. It also lets you talk to your pet to calm them down if they are agitated or bored. 

Besides microchip, you can put a GPS tracker on your pet's collar if you are wary of inserting a tiny device in your pet's body. When you are away from home, you can still feed your pet using a smart feeding bowl or clean a cat's litter box with an automatic, self-cleaning cat litter box.

Do you have a pet dog with boundless energy? Interactive pet toys might help them keep themselves entertained and mentally active. An example of this is an automatic ball dispenser or a treat dispenser.

Lifelike Pets

If you aren't ready for a real pet animal, try adopting lifelike pets such as Perfect Petzzz. It can be a starter animal for kids or a lovely companion for older people. Lifelike pets feel and breathe like a living pet. It can purr and vibrate while asleep. Perfect Petzzz has very soft fur that you can touch or pet.

Lifelike pets such as this can also offer the same comfort and companionship as family pets. It can provide a real pet ownership experience without the hassles and expenses like vet bills. More importantly, you will never have to deal with the expensive pet trends we've mentioned above.

It is safe because it is made from 100% synthetic fur, complete with a pet brush, collar with pet tag, new plush pet bed, and an adoption certificate.

7 Factors to Consider Before Adopting a Pet

Owning a pet is a life-changing experience. Furry companions can bring happiness and fun to your household. However, having a pet is a major commitment that is why you must consider the following factors before you adopt a pet:

1. Provide a pet-friendly atmosphere in five or even ten years.

What is with the numbers? These numbers are the typical lifespan of a dog or cat. Sometimes it can be ten years or more. This is the duration you should prepare for when making a commitment  to take care of a pet despite any circumstances. 

Whether you are entering married life, having children, moving places, changing careers, or going through significant life changes, you must consider how your pet will play a role in it. And they should have a role in it. If you don’t take these life changes into consideration, you need to deal with the heartbreaking moment of returning them to shelters.

2. Ask your roommate or spouse if it is okay having a pet around.

Unfortunately, no matter how cute a dog or cat is, sometimes they can be a nuisance to others. In an interview with Vetstreet, Dr. Ernie Ward said, "If you have a roommate or spouse, make sure that he or she is totally committed to a new pet. I've seen many couples fight openly over the care of their pet." 

To avoid unnecessary drama, ensure that everybody is on board with your idea of getting a pet, even your kids if you have any. Some may not appreciate them because of their rowdy behavior, shedding problem, or perhaps your children are too young to care for a pet.

3. You can tolerate household destructions.

When you are living with pets, "accidents" are bound to happen like shredded sofas, missing shoes (or socks), scattered toilet paper, or dug up trash bins.It depends on how creative your pet is. Yet, no matter how naughty your furry companion is, you should be extra patient towards them.

Moreover, you must also be keen to train them regularly to avoid such destructive episodes inside your household. It might also help to buy them toys to keep them busy but remember that it will add to your expenses.

4. Pet-proof your home.

Dogs and cats love to wander anywhere. They will crawl under furniture or anything with gaps. Cats tend to jump on high areas like countertops, shelves, and even ceiling fans. Dogs love to play zoomies in every corner of your house because of their boundless energy.

That is why it is crucial to pet-proof your house to avoid harming your pet, home, and its dwellers. Hide hazardous things like electrical wiring and sharp objects. Keep  items out of reach that you don't want them to pulverize like toilet papers, pillows, and *cough* your kid's homework. Avoid growing toxic plants inside and outside your house. 

5. Choose a pet you are compatible with.

Unfortunately, loving at first sight with the pet you've found at the shelter doesn't signify a happy and long-lasting relationship. Mostly if you have fallen in love with their looks and not their personality. Because remember that you have to live with them for a long time.

In a Mashable interview with former ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) Senior Vice President Gail Buchwald, she said, "Not picking a pet on the basis of its appearance alone and understand what [personality] factors are going to make the match successful over the long term." 

Dr. Ward agrees with this, and he adds, "The best chances of a great match start when you identify expectations and remain realistic about the relationship." Do your research first before choosing the pet of your dreams and ensure that your personalities match.

6. Spay or neuter your pet.

This is one of the controversial issues you should take into account when adopting a pet. Spaying (for females) or neutering (for males), your pet has its pros and cons.

According to ASPCA, it can prevent breast cancer and uterine infections in female pets, thus allowing them to live a longer and healthier life. For males, it prevents testicular cancer and unwanted litters. 

However, spayed or neutered pets are likely to be obese or overweight, based on an article from The Washington Post. They are also prone to orthopedic injuries.

It would be better if you talk with your vet before doing any life-changing operation. But if your state requires sterilizations of household animals, then you need to comply.

7. Microchipping your pet.

Family fur babies are unpredictable and adventurous, especially cats! They might get lost or run away when they are strolling around the neighborhood. It might help to microchip them or get a collar with a tag to provide your pet a proper identification. 

Perfect Petzzz: Hassle-free pet adoption

If you don't want to go into trouble weighing the conditions stated above, then get an alternative like Perfect Petzzz. It is a lifelike pet that can also offer a real pet ownership experience without hassles and expenses.

You won't have the problems you can experience with real life pets. They will not cause a ruckus, which means no unnecessary drama with your housemates or loved ones. You don't have to worry about pet-related accidents or chewed footwear. You don't have to spend on food, injections, vet checkups, microchips, or spay/neuter operations.

All you need to do is shower them with attention and non-stop cuddles. In return, they will provide you with constant companionship and love.

Is Pet Insurance Worth It? Let us Weigh Its Pros and Cons

You will do anything for your pets. You will give them treats. Shower them with love and attention. Spoil them with exquisite pet toys. And endure the expensive vet bills and other expenses. You are willing to do anything to make them happy and pampered to the point that you will even get pet health insurance to ensure that they live a long and happy life.

But is pet insurance really worth it?

History of pet insurance

Firstly, let us go down memory lane of when we humans decided to give insurance to animals. In 1890, the first-ever written pet insurance policy was created in the US, and it only involved horses and livestock. This is understandable since these animals were one of the sources of livelihood during those times.

But when the TV canine star, Lassie, catapulted to fame, its owners considered getting the pup insured. That was way back in 1982. After more than three decades, the number of insured pets multiplied. It never became just a fad. According to the North American Pet Health Insurance Association (NAPHIA), approximately 2.82 million pets were insured in 2019. Its average annual growth rate is 22.1%. 

Three types of pet health insurance

Pet health insurance safeguards you and your pet from unwanted and unpredictable veterinary costs. It has three types, as follows:

  1. Accident & Illness = a comprehensive policy that covers unexpected sickness, disease, and injuries.
  1. Accident Only = covers accident-related medical treatments.
  1. Wellness = also known as "Preventive" or "Routine" care. It can cover common pet treatments like dental, tests, and vaccinations.

The Accident & Illness and Wellness are sometimes combined into one policy, but your pet can only get dental care.

Benefits of pet health insurance

  1. You can afford expensive treatments such as chemotherapy, surgery, drug therapy, and other medical operations. Typically, these medical procedures would cost you hundreds or even thousands of dollars without insurance. 
  1. It can be customizable based on your financial situation and your pet's needs. Unlike before, it is now possible to choose from different carriers and deductible amounts.
  1. You can choose your vet who accepts your insurance plan. You won't have a problem getting your vet's invoice and submitting your claim for reimbursement.

Cons of pet insurance

Now, let us discuss the disadvantages of getting your pet insured:

  1. You won't get away with a maximum benefit limit each year, no matter what carrier and plan you choose. So if you go beyond the limit, the remaining cost will be handled by you.
  1. In pet insurance, you have to pay the bill first with your money and then send it for reimbursement—it kind of defeats the purpose of being insured.
  1. Pre-existing medical conditions like hip dysplasia and diabetes will not be covered. It would be better to use the money to treat your pet instead of purchasing insurance. It doesn't mean you can't get a plan but keep in mind that you can't reimburse the money you've spent on any pre-existing condition that your pet has.
  1. Take note that there are restrictions that you must consider depending on the age and breed of your pet. The age requirement is at least six weeks old to be able to get an insurance. The older your pet, the higher the premium will be.
  1. It won't cover anything pregnancy-related operations and treatments.

How much is pet health insurance?

Based on Consumer Reports, you need to shell out $22 per month for dogs, while the cat's pet insurance cost is around $16 per month. This is only the average cost because it might go higher as per your pet's age, breed, and your chosen coverage.

In an interview with NBC News, president of Checkbook.org, Robert Krughoff, said, "It's common to pay $300 a year or more for pet insurance. Over the life of a dog or cat, that might be $5,000 or more."

That is why if your goal of getting insurance is only for your pet's wellness care, you will be only wasting a lot of money.

But if you are adamant about having a pet, there is an alternative option we can suggest.

Perfect Petzzz: The best furry companion minus the insurance

It is not only the insurance, but you won't have to spend on vet bills, food, and other pet-related expenses. This is one of the advantages of choosing Perfect Petzzz as your pet.

Perfect Petzzz is a lifelike pet that looks and feels like a living animal. They are suitable for all ages. Kids can play with it at any time. It is also the best companion for older people who have dementia or Alzheimer's.

7 Best Pets For Kids (And Its Pros and Cons)

One of the most memorable and precious gifts you can give your children is a pet. According to the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, pets can help develop a child's self-confidence, self-esteem, empathy, and compassion. It can also bring happiness and fun to your home, making your family closer. 

However, choosing the best pet for your child is a challenging task. You need to consider your family's current lifestyle, your kid's age, and you have to check if everyone in your family is comfortable having a pet. 

Don't worry because we've listed the top seven pets that are suitable for your child, along with its pros and cons below:

1. Dogs

They are not called "good boys (or girls)" for nothing. If there is an award for the best pet globally, dogs are most likely in the hall of fame. 

Pros: Canines, whether big or small, are furballs of energy. They are also affectionate and loyal; that is why they make good companions. Pups can encourage your child to be active due to their playful nature.

Cons: Speaking of a dog's playful nature, they can accidentally hurt their owners or strangers, especially if they don't fancy them. Pups can be high-maintenance because they need a great deal of training, care, and companionship. Dogs also have different temperaments and behavior.

2. Cats

Another popular furry companion is cats. They are reserved and value independence but can adapt well once they have familiarized themselves with their surroundings.

Pros: If you want to avoid accidents in the house, cats are perfect around kids. They are not as energetic as dogs and require less maintenance.

Cons: However, cats can be a bit of a "diva." If they are not in the mood for play, they will ignore your child, or worse, they can be hostile to them. You can't boss them around easily. It is the other way around, and they won't hesitate to retaliate if disturbed.

3. Fishes

These colorful sea creatures can be a visual feast for your children. You can start with a small bowl and later fill an aquarium full of fishes.

Pros: Fishes only require little upkeep and care. You can also leave them with your child without worrying about being harmed.

Cons: These water critters are delicate beings that you need to change their water regularly. Your kids might have too much "fun" feeding them that may lead to their demise. And a remorseful kid, which can result in a not so good childhood memory. In addition, your kids cannot interact with the fish, so they are not hands on the pet.

4. Hamsters

It can rival the cuteness of dogs and cats. As an alternative, you can choose its relative, the guinea pig.

Pros: Hamsters need little maintenance, and you don't have to worry about pet hair since they only stay in their cages. They are also easily entertained with the help of toys.

Cons: But keep in mind that hamsters and guinea pigs have bad eyesight, which means they can accidentally bite you and your kids. Another thing is a hamster or guinea pig is nocturnal creatures. It means they are awake when your child is asleep, which pretty much defeats the purpose of having them as a pet.

5. Birds

Its vibrant colors aren't only the feature that will put you in awe but also its melodious voice. They are also intelligent species and sociable.

Pros: They don't require training, unlike dogs. Yet they have fantastic personalities and can be a loving family pet for the next 60 years.

Cons: However, it's excellent life expectancy is the downside of keeping a bird as a pet. How will it cope when your kids go to college, enter married life, and eventually have kids? Taking care of a bird is a lifetime commitment.

6. Rabbits

They are great pets for toddlers who need an introduction to pet ownership. They are also as intelligent as birds and very inquisitive too.

Pros: Once they warmed up to you, they can be too adorable and cuddly. Rabbits are also well-behaved and low-maintenance pets.

Cons: It might be a good thing that they love to socialize, but because of this, rabbits also need a constant companion to keep them entertained. That is why you should have a pair of them, which could add up to your expenses. They are also sensitive to changes in temperature that makes them uncomfortable and grumpy.

7. Turtles

Like birds, they can end up being the oldest member of your family. Yet it can retain its cuteness throughout the years.

Pros: It is harmless (except for the snapping turtle), and if annoyed, it can attack you in a very, VERY slow manner. They are independent creatures and can be a perfect apartment dweller because of its size.

Cons: However, turtles are known to transmit bacteria called salmonella, which can harm your children's health. They also need an expensive habitat and cost from $600-$1,200, according to PetHelpful.

Perfect Petzzz: The best alternative to living pets

Despite the cons mentioned above, you should not give up on searching for a pet for your child. Luckily, there is an affordable alternative to family pets such as Perfect Petzzz. 

Perfect Petzzz is as great as its living counterparts because it provides the same companionship and comfort level. It doesn't need any maintenance or training.

7 Questions You Must Ask Yourself Before Choosing A Pet For Your Kids

Before you head to the pet shop or foster home, you should ask yourself first if you and your child are ready to take care of a pet. Owning a pet is a rewarding and enjoyable experience, but there is a catch. You must understand that pet ownership is a life-changing decision and comes with ample responsibility. Moreover, you should be open to different alternatives if ever living pets is not an ideal option. As a parent or guardian, you must be armed with information and lots of patience as you explain this to your child.

Here are the following questions you should ask yourself to assess your family's aptitude for pet ownership:

Is our home ready for it?

You can’t just put your newly-adopted pet at any corner of your house. Determine ahead of time where they will sleep, eat, and do their business. Adopting a pet is like having a new family member that requires a lot of your attention

Moreover, it is not only your household that should be ready. It would be best to consider your current living arrangement and the local laws in your area about pet adoption. If you are renting, ask your landlord about any pet restrictions or rules. Find out if there is any building, county, town, or state ordinances about it. Is the current state you are living in is pet-friendly or not? 

Which one is better: a dog or a cat?

Also, remember that not all pets' behaviors are equal. Cats being territorial, must have its lair in your house no matter how big or small your abode is. They also love to crawl into spaces and jump over high places. Oh, they also love scratching on things like sofas and chairs.

On the other hand, dogs are balls of energy, so you must have plenty of space for them. Who will take them for a walk? Do you have a spacious yard where they can play? 

Will we be able to provide the amount of attention my pet needs?

Even though it is your child's pet, you are still the primary caregiver of these furry companions. Remember that your children don't have yet the full capacity of caring for another living thing. They will shower it with affection at one time and ignore them the next minute.

How about you? Will you be able to spend time with your pets, or you need to go to work? Are your children willing to take care of the pet in your absence? Explain to them that besides playing with pets, they should feed, pick up after them and shower them with love. 

Is anyone in my family allergic to pets?

If your answer is yes, then please don’t adopt one. Don't compromise your family's health over a furry companion. Nope, it is not because of the pet's hair or fur. Its source is dander (dead skin cells) and proteins in the saliva and urine produced by your pet, as stated by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA).

Allergens can be spread anywhere, such as on the sofa, clothing, wall, and other surfaces. Pet dander can also become airborne during dusting and vacuuming. When you adopt a pet, you should accept the consequence where one of your family members who are allergic to it might be dependent on medication, which might be bad for their health and cause side effects.

Can we afford to care for a pet?

You have to spend on food, grooming, housing, exercise, training, and veterinary care. Speaking of veterinary care, your pet should see a vet at least annually, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association. Besides vaccinations, it also includes several annual preventive healthcare exams such as fecal parasite exams, dental evaluation, heartworm testing, and more—no wonder a pet hates going to the vet.

There are also miscellaneous expenses like getting rid of your pet’s unpleasant odor around your house. Or paying for the repair of your damaged furniture due to "accidents" caused by your beloved fur babies. And because you adore your pets so much, you might buy them toys, scratch posts, beds, treats, and other pet supplies just to make your fur baby happy. You might consider these expenses as a small, occasional cost, but it can add up quickly over time.

Is my child ready to have a pet?

We cannot argue the positive impact of pet ownership on children. However, you have to ensure that they are willing to be a responsible pet parent. Tell them that pet ownership entails responsibility. Since they have short attention spans, you have to always remind them not to squeeze or smother the pet as it may fight back.

How can you ensure the safety of your child with a pet when you are away? The Pet Sitters International (PSI) said, "The safety of both child and pet should be discussed initially among family members and periodic reminders to children depending on their level of understanding." Due to a child's curious and rowdy behavior, they may tend to forget to be gentle and calm around their pets.

Is there a safe yet equally fun alternative to family pets?

Fortunately, there is, and it is called Perfect Petzzz, which is a lifelike pet that almost feels and behaves like a real one. Consider owning a Perfect Petzzz companion as an initiation or for training before taking care of a family pet. What are the benefits of Perfect Petzzz?

But just like normal pets, they also need non-stop love and cuddles. That's it! And in return, they will be happy and content to be a loyal furry companion forever.
