Critter cruiser is an exciting pet powered exercise car for hamsters and gerbils. Critter cruiser’s adjustable racing wheel allows for the car to work in three different ways. First, when the comfort wheel is in the top position, exercising critters spin the wheel and the critter cruiser remains stationary. Interactive fun begins by adjusting the comfort wheel into the middle position. In the middle position, you can watch your pet turn the wheel and roll their critter cruiser on any flat surface. By adjusting the comfort wheel to the lowest position, the critter cruiser will work directly on super pet’s hamtrac. Critter cruisers are available in four fun colors.

This amusing and engaging toy preys on a feline’s natural hunting instincts, recreating the unpredictable, herky-jerky movements of a flittering butterfly. The unit’s electronic motor spins a furry lure, reversing its direction at random to keep a pouncing predator off balance. The toy’s removable plastic wand bends when the lure is swatted or captured, then returns to its original shape. A knob on the base controls the lure’s speed and a built-in timer (15-120 minutes in 15-minute increments) shuts the toy off automatically to conserve batteries and a feline’s patience. Rubber feet protect floors and fold-out stabilizers keep the toy from tipping during boisterous feline attacks. Includes a spare lure.

This kit analyzes your dog’s DNA and identifies the breeds in its ancestry. It provides scientific confirmation of the physical characteristics, behavioral tendencies, personality traits, and potential health risks your mixed-breed dog has inherited. A professional laboratory tests a cotton swab that you simply rub against the inside of your dog’s cheek and send to the lab in the provided envelope. The laboratory compares the unique sequences in your canine’s genome with DNA markers from a database of thousands of purebred dogs. The DNA test recognizes 63 different breeds (93% of the most common breeds in the U.S.) that can make up your pet’s genetic profile. You will receive a certificate listing your dog’s ancestry and a detailed explanation of each breed’s dominant characteristics that likely have been passed on to your dog.
The Canine Genealogy Kit is available at Skymall for $59.95
This award-winning toy keeps an energetic dog chasing tennis balls long after his human playmate tires, or even lets him play fetch all by himself. The machine can be set to launch balls automatically or when a button on the remote control is pressed. You can adjust the distance (15′ to 30′) and interval (seven to 15 seconds) in which balls are launched, and if a dog is trained to drop a tennis ball into the machine, he can play indefinitely on his own. The machine’s rugged plastic hopper has a 17-ball capacity and handles for easy transport. Includes six tennis balls and training tips. The launcher plugs into AC or runs on six D batteries that provide five hours of operation.
