Christmas will be here before you know it, and I’ve thoughtfully compiled a short list of gifts that might appeal (for receiving or giving) to readers of this website.
Owl pellets from Mountain Home Biological. These are cheap: only $2.65 for an extra large pellet, which can contain up to 6 prey! Hours of fun for the young naturalist. Optional dissection kit just $2.25.
Desktop cat seat from Brookstone ($29.95).
Our desktop Cat Seat gives cats a comfortable place to rest on the desk that’s out of the way, yet still only an arm’s length from a scratch on the belly. Designed for cat owners who work in a home or small office, this indispensable item maintains that all-important distance between paws and keyboard, while giving your cat a cozy nesting box that’s still within easy reach of affection. The soft cushion and high walls will appeal to your cats, while you’ll appreciate the solid pine construction in a choice of attractive finishes. It can be clamped firmly to either side of the desk, or simply placed flat on top–felt pads protect your furniture. Can support a 20-lb. cat, and even small dogs. Cushion cover is machine-washable. 16 1/4″ w x 11″ d x 5″ h.
Photographic prints of Lorenzo, “the best dressed cat in America” ($75.00). Lorenzo is a large Maine coon cat who models menswear (tops only). Whether your tastes to aloha shirts or more soigné outfits with ascots, Lorenzo has an outfit for you.
