Oxbow Pure Comfort Bedding Review #ChewyInfluencer

We received this product free of charge in exchange for our honest review.

We recently got to try out this product thanks to Chewy. As we are always on the look out for ways to make our little hedgehog happy, we were excited to put this bedding to the “Yuki test”!

The bedding, comes pretty compacted expands a lot once you open the package. We tried the smaller size package and found that we could get at least two full cage changes out of it (hedgehog cages are quiet large, much bigger than what you would have for other small pets). The bedding does come in two sizes, so I would recommend getting the larger size so you don’t have to purchase as often.

What we liked most about it:

Made with 100% pure, never printed paper.

Very absorbent, in fact the description says it can absorb up to 800% of its weight in moisture! We found it to be very good at soaking up water, which Yuki likes to spill out of her bowl from time to time.

Specially formulated to be 99.9% dust free, with minimal small particles. This was very appealing for us, as hedgehogs have sensitive respiratory systems. It’s important to keep her home as dust free as possible.

Yuki was a bit confused at first by the new litter, as it was a different feeling and smell than what she was used to. If you decide to make a switch it might be smart to mix some of the old in with the new until you get them transitioned all the way over to the new brand. Of course if you have a pet that doesn’t burrow in their litter you should have no issue making a switch.

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.
