Hurricane Irene Has Hit North Carolina & Speeding Up The East Coast – Are You Prepared?

August 26, 2011

Whether you think it’s hype, hurricane Irene is coming, and to say she’s one doozy of a storm is putting it rather mildly. She’s big, she’s powerful, she’s angry, and she’s pretty much going to do what she’s going to do.

NYC has an unprecedented mandatory evacuation in place in many parts of town, particularly along the coast and rivers. But we’re going to feel it. Even if she heads out to sea (which at the time of posting looks extremely unlikely), we’ll hear her knocking.

This is the biggest hurricane to hit the East Coast in 50 years. And she’s now shooting off the odd tornado.

I think we all know how to tune into the weather channel or to the news sites, but our pets, as well as us, are in potential danger.

For me, pets are in the worst position. They don’t know what’s happening. We can’t tell them. What we can do is prepare, have them ready to go if we’re in an area that’s under a severe warning or a voluntary evacuation zone. And we can be calm around them, because they feed off our energy, as well as the energy in the air.

Our brave friends over in Florida, Haute or Not Pets have weathered many hurricanes, so they know what they’re talking about. We’re going to hand the hat of knowledge over to them (it’s sort of like the Harry Potter sorting hat, but better, because this hat gives you information that could save your pet’s life).

Stay safe, fellow Royal Pet Club people, stay safe.

Baby It’s Haute Outside…

July 5, 2011



It is hot outside, so we decided to be lazy on this day after Independence Day by showing you a cool item re-shown on Haute or Not Pets!

Yes, it’s pretty much a win-win situation for all involved.

While we’ll let the haute staff at Haute or Not Pets give you the full (and excellent) run down here (click, you know you want to…), we’ll just chime in and say this simple collar allows your dog to cool down in hot hot summer weather. Which is pretty haute, and that makes it really cool.




Cat & Dolphins Playing!

May 20, 2011

This hit our inbox this morning, hot and fresh from the pages of Haute or Not Pets…and it wasn’t til now we finally got a chance to watch it (we being me and Marvin the cat).

Well, I’d been tired and just blah after a very long and busy week, which is about to be followed by a very long and busy weekend (and Marvin says he’s been very busy watching over the house, napping, eating, napping, looking glamorous and shiny, napping, eating, practicing killing shiny things, napping), so imagine how much this video made us perk up and feel 100% better!

Thanks, Haute or Not Pets! We love you! To read all they have to say on the subject, and to check out some really haute animal products, click here to visit their site.

Check out all the details you need to get one for your dog. Mind you, I think you’ll be needing some awesome Royal Treatment wipes to clean up Mr Pooch afterwards.
