Augmented reality jewelry for pet lovers

We have something really fun to share with you today. Have you heard of augmented reality? Code to Canvas has brought this fun technology to jewelry that you can enjoy. Not only are there fun designs for pet lovers, but they even have a daily horoscope version.

It is really fun to play around with, and to surprise friends with too! Here’s a video to show more of how it works:

It’s really simple, all you need to do is download the free app (App Store or Google Play), then scan the jewelry to bring it to life. I have had a lot of fun showing people how the necklace “comes to life” when I get asked about it. The necklace itself looks unique on it’s own too.

I also liked that it came in a cute package, something you could easily use to gift this to someone. There are necklaces, keychains, and bracelets available. Be sure to visit their website to see all the fun options, and to buy one for yourself or as a gift.

Kaytee Cuddle-E Cup Review #ChewyInfluencer

I received this item free of charge from Chewy in exchange for my honest review.

It’s not always easy to find things that are made for hedgehogs. Yes, they are still quiet uncommon little pets! But luckily a lot of items for other small pets can also work with hedgehogs. Today we are talking about the Kaytee Cuddle-E Cup that you can find on Chewy (one of our favorite places to stock up on all things for our pets).

Yuki is a snuggler, so I knew that she would enjoy the soft inside of the cup a lot. It did not disappoint! Once she did all of her sniffing, she settled right in.

It’s a little large for her cage, but I liked that there is a clip on the back to help hold it stationary in a cage. We have it in her play area, and she likes getting in and taking a break in it. I think this would actually be an amazing addition to a ferret cage (my ferret would have LOVED it).

Also, it’s machine washable, which is a must because we all know that it’s going to get messy. The fabric is also really durable, even Yuki’s sharp little teeth didn’t put a hole in it. And she had a good chew on it too!

An awesome small pet product for sure! Learn more about it here.

Heat Storm Review

We were provided with a Heat Storm heater in exchange for our honest review. All opinions are our own.

You may be wondering why we would be reviewing a space heater on a pet blog, but we have a very good reason for it! Hedgehogs have specific heat requirements, and in our house we have found the best and easiest way for us to get Yuki the warmth she needs is by using a space heater in “her room”.

Birds also benefit from warmer homes, as do many other smaller pets. Since you might not want to heat up your entire home, like us, a space heater can be a great solution.

We were excited to get a chance to try out this space heater, especially when we saw two very important features!

It’s safe to touch, even on the grill, which is important if you have pets running around. And secondly, you can mount it on the wall up off the floor away from pets or people!

What we love about it:

  • Option to mount on the wall is perfect for pet spaces, or other places where you don’t want a heater on the floor.
  • It runs like your house thermostat, so it will tell you the temperature of the air, and it will run to keep the heat where you set it.
  • It’s energy efficient. This is a big deal if you need to run it as much as we run ours.
  • Quieter than the other model we were using.
  • Easy to set up and run. It even comes with a remote!
  • Has reusable filters. We love that you can just clean them instead of needing to replace them.

We tried the Wave model, and have been pleased with it in the room we are using it in. The room is about 10X11 feet, and the heater does a good job keeping it at about 75F. Like I mentioned, hedgehogs need warmth of about 73-80 degrees. It’s good to know what your pet likes of course, as some will prefer it on the cooler side, while others will like it hot! Since we don’t want to keep our entire house that warm, the space heater is a great alternative.

They do offer larger models if you have bigger rooms. To learn more and see all the models, be sure to visit the Heat Storm website.
