My Pet Shirt LLC
My Petshirt is a sweatshirt and pet carrier in one. Available with or without sleeves and in different designs, the front-carrying pocket is designed to carry pets up to 10 pounds. Our product tester, a year-old cat named Sammie, seemed to enjoy riding around in it and taking in the sights from a new perspective.

The Fauna Sauna is designed for treating arthritis, hip dysplasia, hotspots and more. It emits Far Infrared energy that penetrates up to 2 inches into skin, tissue and joints, according to the company. This product appealed to us because it is an innovative way to help pets relax and heal through the use of natural heat.

The Deluxe Booster Seat is designed for small pets to have an unobstructed view while traveling in an automobile. It installs on seats with or without headrests, works in backseats, holds pets up to 30 pounds and features removable and washable fabrics and lining, according to the company. Our product tester, a dog named Mergatroyd, liked riding in the seat so much he did not want to get out at the end of the trip.

The Feline Funhouse is a collapsible, portable outdoor enclosure for cats. Designed to use for decks, backyards, camping and more, it features two zippered doors and optional stakes. Our product testers, Sammie and Pippin, enjoyed basking in the sun outside while being safely contained in the unit.

Simpet Solutions Inc.
The Feeding Friend is an automatic feeder and waterer designed to prevent ants from infesting food. The food is raised above the water tray and positioned to keep food from falling into the water bowl and to promote proper digestion. The water bowl hooks up to a garden hose to maintain water level, according to the company. This feeder attracted our attention because of its simplicity and convenience—and the fact that it incorporates several good ideas, especially for the outdoor pet.

The Snap-N-Clean Ionic Brush is designed to emit millions of ions that attach to proteins in a pet’s fur and skin to eliminate odors. The brush features an innovative Snap-N-Clean plate for easy cleaning. Our product tester especially liked the removable plate because it makes cleaning the brush a snap—literally.
