A Litter Box For Cool Cats

Cats would be the perfect house pets if you could just train them to do their business like dogs. Or people.

A Dog Crate For Your Posh, Modern Pooch

Back when I adopted my dog Lucca as an 8-week-old puppy, she needed to be crate trained. Crate-training is the very best way to teach a dog to use the restroom outside and only outside, not, say, on couches covered in micro-suede or on beds after Mommy has just changed the sheets. The puppy spend…

Hair Model Citizen: Doesn’t Your Cat Deserve A Wig Today?

Smooshy Wooshy Puppy Wuppy Baggy Waggy

We’re not sure all dogs are like this, but at least two Frisky staffers’ dogs love to burrow into blankets and towels and piles of clothes and, in some cases, even leaves and snow. We’re not sure why this is, but it certainly is freakin’ adorable when they do, we’ll tell ya that much. If…

Painter Takes Pet Portraits To A Whole New Level

Painter Valerie Leonard is the Annie Leibovitz of pet portraits—without the mounting debt and camera, that is. Valerie’s “process” is an insanely involved one: She devotes days to each portrait, studies images of a particular animal, researches traits and characteristics of specific breeds. Then, she researches classic artists for the most fitting painting, using the…

Not Cool: Sexy Lingerie For Your Pooch!

First they take our children, and now they are after our pets. The SEX EVERYTHING UP industry has struck again, and this time they’re marketing lingerie for dogs. Metro Paws sells what they call “Negligee T-Shirts,” which are “made from fine lingerie lace and the same stretchy nylons used in fine undergarments.” OK, true story…

The PooTrap Embarrasses Dogs, But Makes Owner’s Life Easier

Some folks are too fashionable to clean up after their dogs, even if they use stylish Poupou Royal bags. So we’re sure the PooTrap will be on everyone’s shopping wish list. It’s too bad their dogs probably won’t like wearing the PooTrap contraption that attaches to their tails. However, the makers of PooTrap have some…

Yes, There Is Now A Snuggie For Dogs

I mean, it was only a matter of time. Amelia spotted this “Snuggie For Dogs,” and the best thing about the infomercial (after the jump, as the video auto plays) is not only the prize-winning script, but also the fact that it is REAL. The sales pitch is so similar to the human Snuggie ad…

The Frisky Gift Guide: Your Awesome Four-Legged Friend

Our pets can be rather intuitive, but we doubt they know when it’s the holiday season. All they know is that you’re excited about something and, therefore, they feed off your energy.
