Cats Who Wear Diapers and the Rescue Who Loves Them

Heya, Readers! It’s me, Peabody, the red hot tortie. Who better than me to tell you about some other smoking ladies who need your attention.

Since we talked about diapers last week, I’ve decided to go all out and make it a thing. Let’s showcase a few scintillating kitties who wear diapers. They live at Tabby’s Place in Ringoes, New Jersey and are diaper proud and ready to strut their stuff!

First up, we have Pixie!

Pixie is described as a “pumpkin-colored fluff,” and is perfect for all your Fall design needs. She’s happy to act as a decorative pillow on your couch or function as a snuggly throw over your lap to keep you warm while you watch spooky Halloween films. If you love her but can’t find the time to express her bladder and bowels a few times a day (her bladder is shy and, due to her paraplegia, can’t express itself) you can still help fund her care and get neat updates on her every month from Tabby’s Place by becoming a sponsor. Her injuries are, sadly, due to a human being cruel, so let’s show her that humans can also be kind and make up for it with all the care, kindness, and dollars we can muster.

Bringing the fall right to you!

For more information about how you can sponsor or adopt Pixie, check out her profile.

 

Next, we have Olive!

Olive, ready for action. Or scratchin’. Or maybe just a nap.

Oh, look at this sassy lady! Already dressed in a tuxedo and ready to be dipped in a martini, Olive is a ready-made secret agent (shhhh). In fact, being a paraplegic may even be part of her disguise. Who can say? We’ve been told she’s extremely feisty and could definitely use a sponsor since, according to Tabby’s Place, “$26/month pays for two hours staff time to change Olive’s diaper.”  What do you think? Can you add a little something something to Olive’s fund to make sure her diapers are cleaned and her martinis are shaken, not stirred?

Scooting right along.

And finally, we have Rose! Hit it, Rose!

Cue the closeup.

See, it turns out Rose didn’t like cars, so she tried to hit one. Unfortunately, due to misjudging her own size and the speed at which she was running, it didn’t go as planned and Rose has been left incontinent due to a spinal injury. No matter, though, because it seems this little flower shines the sun just as much as she soaks it in. Tabby’s Place says “Rose’s joy is contagious, and she’s set on spreading sunshine to everyone she meets.” She’s also on a prescription diet to maintain the consistency of her stool, presumably so she doesn’t also spread that to everyone she meets. Yikes.

Soakin up the sun. And the urine (in her diaper.)

To get more details on this gorgeous flower and to donate to her gardening fund, have a look see at her info page.

And there you have it! Three cats who wear diapers with great aplomb. Let’s help make sure they find the homes and the funds they need to stay happy, healthy, and looking good in their diapers.

Kisses,

Mrs. P.

P.S. We’re pleased to say that we’ve hooked up last week’s sponsor Pet Parents with Tabby’s Place to get these ladies some brand new diapers to try out! Thanks to Pet Parents for wanting to help keep these ladies fresh and clean.

 

 

 

Diapers for Dogs and Cats: A Pet Parents®Review

FTC Disclosure: This post was sponsored by Pet Parents®. We were given a sample product as well as financial compensation to review it. All opinions are our own and we only write about products we think our readers should know about. CatInTheFridge.com does not receive any financial compensation from the sales of these products nor are we compensated if you click through to the company’s links.

Dear Readers,

Today, I, Pinkle (also known as Sprinkle), am here to discuss with you a rather heavy topic. You see, there comes a time in some cats’ lives where they need a little extra help. Such a time has come upon my oldest brother Niles. He has, shall we say, been dropping the water balloons where he ought not to be doing so. Pet Parents® noticed our last post about living with a 19 year old cat and approached us about trying out a product to help curb Niles’ urge to, shall we say, leak information about his whereabouts. It seems he’s especially fond of the office carpet, under the piano, and directly in front of the litter box. Alana decided to take them up on the suggestion and accepted – I’ll just come out and say it – Diapers.

Niles has diapers.

I’ll give you a moment to absorb.

Alana discussed the idea with me, as she does all of her ideas, and we, as a team, decided that it would be worth a try. Now, Pet Parents offers diapers that come in sets of three for both cats and dogs, in a variety of colors. They also come in the same package, so don’t be alarmed if you order “Cat” and get “Dog.” They have assured me they are the same product.

“Dog” Diapers. It’s ok. “Cats” aren’t feeling left out, or anything.

I decided that we needed to get some statement diapers to go along with Niles’ dark complexion, and so we ordered the Princess Pack.

The Princess Colors

Sure, we could have gone with Black or Natural, but where’s the fun in that? And now, let us begin our review:

The Plan: Niles doesn’t ALWAYS pee on the floor, so we decided he wouldn’t always have to wear the diapers. His main M.O. is to pee when Alana is in another room at home, so he will be wearing the diapers at those times.

The Implementation: It was a little hard to get the diapers on Niles and took a team of two (I stepped back so as not to get accidentally wet) but, once they were on, Niles went with the flow. He was able to walk around with them without incident. He napped in them, ate in them, and generally had no mobility problems while wearing them. He did not, however, pee in them. However, he also didn’t pee on the floor, so that’s a win.

Some Concerns: We had a few concerns that the company addressed for us. Here they are, with a response from Pet Parents®:

Q: Have you had any reports of cats refusing to pee BECAUSE they are wearing the diaper?

A: Some pets are hesitant to pee in the diapers, especially if they aren’t used to them quite yet! It can take some getting used to. But to answer your question straight-forward, no, we have not had any reports of this issue from our customers.

Q:  Are there any concerns with cats that they would hold it for overly long periods of time while wearing the diapers?

A: We haven’t heard any negative feedback from our customers on having issues with cats not holding it in for too long, so it has not been a concern – but just like with anything new, it’s important to observe and pay attention to how your pet is reacting to the new adjustment.

Q: Do you recommend any kind of acclimation period of a few minutes a day to get them used to them before leaving them on all day?

A:  It depends on the pet and their initial reaction to the diaper. No one knows their fur-baby better than the owner so just watch their reaction and maybe slowly introduce them to the diaper, if needed.

Q: Are there any safety issues reported with a pet wearing it while you’re not around?
A: We have not had any reported problems of our diapers being a safety hazard as a lot of customers use them specifically for when they are not at home!

Q: What if Niles has to poop?

A: Our diapers are used for fecal situations, as well.

Ah, yes. “Fecal situations.” Use your imaginations for that one, readers.

The Verdict: So far, Niles hasn’t peed in the diapers. It’s a bit hard to get them on him because, while he’s 19, he leaps away like a frightened gazelle when he sees them coming. I, however, am excellent with costuming so you’ll notice I stepped in to assist for a photo op. I will help Alana any time I can.

Me stepping in as the Model du Jour.

Niles isn’t wearing them all day, but they do offer Alana peace of mind for her floors and carpets. However, she wonders (I can read her mind, we are that close) if perhaps, since Niles wees in specific places, would floor pads such as the Pet Parents Pee Pads be a better option for him?

Who are these for: These would be ideal for a cat or dog who is incontinent and leaking without his own knowledge. These would also work for dogs in heat (please spay your dogs, thanks) or who pee from excitement.

Tips: Make sure you get the right size! Measure your dog or cat first. This is imperative to ensure a fabulous fit.

Pros: The Diapers are washable (unlike our carpets) and are super convenient.

Cons: The shame.

Niles refusing to make eye contact.

Do we recommend them? 

Yes! We, do! These diapers are awesome to have on hand for cats (or dogs) who are having incontinence or spraying issues, or if they’re in heat (because their owners are having spaying issues.) They’re really well made, soft, and easy to maintain. We’re super happy to be able to recommend them, especially because it means there are now MORE OPTIONS FOR GETTING SPECIAL NEEDS PETS WITH LITTER BOX ISSUES INTO HOMES, and that is DEFINITELY something we can get behind.

You can visit Pet Parents® online and order cat diapers here. Let us know your thoughts and leave any questions you might have for the company below. We’ll be happy to pass them on.

Love,

Pinkle.

For the prince(ess) in your life.
