As you all know, I write (and, at Amazing Pet Expos around the country, speak) a lot about how to save money on your pet’s care. With six furry family members in our home, we’re always looking for ways to save money on our dog and cat care needs.
One way we save money is by shopping at Walmart for many of our pet needs and EVERY trip includes Tidy Cat® and Fancy Feast® for Felix, Linus, Inca, and Coco. Both Purina® brands are available at Walmart but now Purina® has teamed up Walmart for another great way for pet lovers to save money, have fun, and learn more about cats and dogs: the Purina® Pet Park on the Walmart website.
This special site features videos, new pet games, apps and tools for pet parents. Videos range from Real Pet Stories (and you know I can’t resist a happy ending adoption story so I spent quite a bit of time in this section) and helpful videos on everything from pet etiquette to pet travel, a topic that’s always on my mind thanks to our radio show and guidebook project.
And I loved the app section with both informative and just plain fun apps. Cat travelers can’t miss the Fancy Feast® MorningPurr, an app that lets you record the sound of your cat’s purr, upload it with a cat photo, and transform that purr into a morning alarm! (Is that far better than a hotel wake-up call or what?!) The Purina® Petometer lets you map your daily dog walk route to log miles and schedule workouts. And the Purina® Pet Health App can help remind you of your pet’s veterinary visit or groomer’s appointment. (And wouldn’t this be perfect for reminding you about your pet’s monthly heartworm preventative!)
Be sure to visit the new Purina® Pet Park for some fun, free, and functional videos, articles, and apps (not to mention coupons). Just be sure you’ve got a little free time when you visit; like me, you’ll probably find yourself spending more time at this Park than you first planned once you see how much there is to do!
