HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE – Day 14: Win a SureFlap Microchip Cat Flap + SmartBones Dog Bones (1 Winner for Each)


Calling all cat and dog lovers. Today’s Holiday Gift Guide Review and Giveaway features two items. One for you cat lovers and one for the dog lovers. You may enter to win either one.
SureFlap Microchip Cat Flap normally retails for $139.99 on Amazon and other sites.

Since I’m not a cat person, I had to enlist the help of a friend to give the SureFlap a trial run for me. She said it worked great and installed in her existing cat door perfectly. She had just gotten her cat chipped and de-clawed when trying out the door, so he was a little traumatized from everything all at once. She anticipates it to be a great thing once he is over all of the traumatic events.

This kitty door works in harmony with your already microchipped pet. Any cat can exit the door from inside your house, but the door recognizes only the microchipped cat for reentry. It can also be programmed for multiple cats. The SureFlap prevents neighborhood cats from gaining access to your home, as well as curious raccoons. Once the SureFlap is installed into your existing hole, or a new one, you just need to pass your cat’s head/ shoulder, wherever their microchip has been placed, through the door to set the program.

When your cat wants to reenter the door from outside, the SureFlap recognizes the chip and will unlock for your beloved cat. What could be simpler? I understand nothing is worse than a strange cat getting into your home and spraying or eating your cat’s food. Raccoons are known to be sneaking about getting in through your cat’s door, and eating their food – those sneaky little guys! You can read all about the SureFlap on their website.


For you dog lovers, I’m featuring SmartBones – the healthy alternative to rawhide. Smart Bones comes in a few flavors, but I’m featuring the SmartBones Dental Dog Chew, Mini, 24-pack. These are actually on sale right now at Amazon for $10.38. The bones you select should vary depending on the weight of your dog.

SmartBones chews are made with real chicken and provide your dog with needed chewing exercise. They’re rawhide-free and contain real chicken. The dental chews also include chlorophyll and parsley seed oil to promote dental health and better smelling doggie breath! I don’t have a dog right now, so a friend’s dog was the beneficiary of these chews and she said he loved them! SmartBones are also 99% digestible, which is better for dog than rawhide. We all know dogs need that chewing exercise for dental health and for activity. SmartBones are a healthy alternative to your pet finding your favorite shoes!
