The “Neater Feeder” (For Cats) Review
If you have a cat, or cats that just love to make a mess while drinking at the water bowl, you are going to be VERY interested in the Neater Feeder!
One day (after cleaning up yet another mess that my cats made while drinking their water), I got serious about finding a much needed solution. I searched the Internet frantically for anything that would solve the problem of water getting splashed all over the place when my cats had a drink. I looked for mats, different bowl designs, and just about everything in between. The water that my cats slashed all over was causing the wooden rack that I had the food bowls on, to be utterly destroyed. I needed a solution, and fast!
My search ended when I came across the “Neater Feeder.” …I just knew it “could” potentially be the solution to all my “messy cat” problems.
Mess Proof Pet Bowls
My Findings: The Neater Feeders For Cats is made of plastic, and has a design that traps any spilled food or water in a tray below the feeding bowls so there is absolutely no mess on the floor when your cat is done eating. It also has a nice high back splash surrounding the bowls, so as the cat’s tongue flicks, the water (or milk) will hit the back splash, and be channeled down into the bottom pan. When I setup the Neater Feeder, my cats took to it right away (not much gets between them and their food. *LOL*). The Neater Feeder is not much bigger than the space required for two bowls, and as luck would have it, it fit perfectly in the spot that I use to feed my cats. The Neater Feeder has one bowl that is a little deeper than the other, and that is so your cat can drink more water and eat less food.
The Neater Feeder lives up to it’s name, it was a LOT “Neater.” My messy cat problems were completely solved with this product. Happy day!! What a great invention it is, and one that I could not be without. ..The only thing that I would caution, is that if you have more than one cat, you will need to skip the CAT version in lieu of one of the larger versions (SMALL or MEDIUM). The Neater Feeder (CAT) is perfect for one cat, but for my four cats, it could hardly keep up. I had to fill it more often that I had hoped.
“The Neater Feeder for cats takes the mess out of meal time with its spill-proof, kick-proof design. Spilled water drains into the lower reservoir, while food is contained on top.”
Food Bowl Capacity: 1 cup
Water Bowl Capacity: 1.5 cups
Pet Weight Range: All l
Pet Shoulder Height: Up to 6 Inches
Feeding Height (at bowl rim): 3 inches
Neater Feeder Dimensions: 14L x 9W x 6H
About Neater Feeder:
The Neater Feeder is designed with protective walls to contain splashes and spills from an inadvertent kick or an excited pet. This revolutionary system holds spilled food in an upper reservoir while spilled water flows down a gentle slope through a patent-pending filtering system.
The spilled water drains into a lower reservoir that can safely contain more than an entire bowl of spilled water, keeping it off the floor until you are ready to dispose of it. Keeping the spilled food in the upper reservoir, off the floor, not only saves you work, but also keeps it clean for reuse.
I would like thank Neater Feeder for giving me the opportunity to review their Cat Neater Feeder.

Tints Of Nature Review:
Sulfate-Free Shampoo & Conditioner
I’m always looking for organic shampoos and conditioners that are as close to nature as possible, and free of toxic chemicals. Tints of Nature has just that, and they sent me their “sulfate-free” shampoo & conditioner to try out.
Tints of Nature Better for Hair, Better for You
My Findings: Tints of Nature makes a wonderful “sulfate-free” shampoo & conditioner that have none of the harsh chemicals that can cause your scalp to become irritated like some other shampoos and conditioners on the market. Tints of Nature’s conditioner is formulated with Irish seaweed extract, and a plant-derived softening agent to leave your hair feeling nice and soft, and it does! Their shampoo is 100% sulfate free, ammonia free, and has naturally based lathering agents, vitamin B15, and plant amino acids in it. I can tell you that both the shampoo and conditioner are great for color treated hair. They will not fade your hair color like other shampoo’s and conditioners might. My color stayed vibrant wash after wash. The shampoo and conditioner work very well together, and they are great hair products. These hair stylists that formulated these products did a fantastic job!

5 Stars Out of 5
Harper Stoyan, lost his first lifemate during her turning into a vampire. Harper never thought he would get over the death of his life mate Jenny, or even have the possibility of meeting another lifemate during his life time. Harper has done nothing but blame himself for Jenny’s death ever since. He has not even allowed himself to look at another female, or so much as smiled in the direction of one since that time. This will all soon change when a Spanish hottie named Drina Argenis, an immortal hunter, arrives at Casey’s Cottage. She is there to help protect a young newly turned vampire named Stephanie from Leonius, a no-fanger rogue vampire, who wants to kidnap her.
Drina Argenis knows that Harper is her lifemate, but has been told not to let Harper know this too soon as he is still mourning Jenny’s death. If only Drina’s lifemate Harper can put the death of his first lifemate behind him, and focus on what’s infront of him. Will Harper ever realize it, or will he spend the rest of his life alone? Will Drina have the patience to wait for Harper to finish mourning, or will Drina move on and find another lifemate? Drina and Harper’s love will be put to the test in this wonderful thrilling novel The Reluctant Vampire by Lynsay Sands.
Lynsay Sands books just rock. I have read all of her books from the Argeneau series and everyone of them keeps getting better and better. The Reluctant Vampire is full of twists and turns that will have you turning the pages at lighting speed wanting to know what is going to happen next. I can never seem to put down Lynsay’s books. I always end up staying up all night reading her books, Gee- I hate that. This book is one I really enjoyed. The humorous banter that she weaves in is just excellent! AWESOME job Lynsay, I can’t wait to read your next novel in this series.

Read on and find out more about some of the amazing products I just reviewed from Made From Earth!
Organic, Holistic and Chemical Free | Made from Earth
Tea + Protein Herbal Shampoo: This Protein infused volumizing organic shampoo smells wonderful and does exactly what it says it does. For anyone who has dry hair and has trouble getting that added moisturizer into their hair this is the shampoo for you. This shampoo has organic plant-based ingredients to emulsify the scalp and hair without the added dryness of other shampoos that leave your scalp itchy and dry afterwards.
Peppermint Herbal Conditioner: I suffer from hair loss, and I’m always looking for a conditioner that will stimulate my scalp for added hair growth. This is exactly what the Peppermint Herbal Conditioner does. You can really feel the peppermint working, and it smells just wonderful. I should mention that the smell of peppermint also gives you and energy kick!
Vitamin E + Citrus Shower Gel: Who doesn’t like the smell of citrus fruits, lemons and oranges with the added benefits of Vitamin E and Pro-Vitamin B5 to neutralize sun and environmental damage. I love the smell of this shower gel, and I love how I feel energized after my morning shower when I uses the Vitamin E + Citrus Shower Gel.
Organic Aloe & Jojoba Creme Therapy: I loved this hand lotion, I just wish though they would have added an emulsifier to their hand lotion to make it thicker. It was a little too runny for my taste.
Olive Night Creme: Just like the Italians do, they put pure olive oil on the skin to keep them looking youthful. That is what Made From Earth’s Olive Night Creme does. I love the moisture in this cream and I love how it adds oil back to my skin to keep my skin nice and healthy looking.
Grapefruit Glycolic Wash: One of my favorite smells is grapefruit, and having the smell of grapefruit in a face wash is a bonus. I especially like the beads in this face wash, they really cleaned my skin nice and clean.
Spearmint Lip Balm: I LOVE this lip balm! It coats my lips and keeps my lip nice moist all day long. Great stuff!
About Made From Earth:
We were surprised at how many synthetic chemicals are being used in skin care products today, most of which are added as a preservative. For example, organic ingredients are mixed with potentially toxic chemicals for preservation (in the form of a preservative). A study, reported in the Journal of Applied Toxicology, found parabens to be the most common cosmetic preservative present in significant amounts in 18 out of 20 breast cancer tumors. Cosmetic chemicals accumulate in the body’s fatty tissues, where they can remain for years and damage your cells. Made from Earth uses a natural preservative system to preserve our precious organic ingredients – and we found our natural preservatives are great for your skin, like Jojoba and Vitamin E.
We limit our line of products to just the best the organic market can offer in face treatments, body lotions, hair, bath and lip balms. It has been our honor to work with the best eco-friendly, environmentally conscious and recognized people in the health and beauty industry. Our company is based on the same healthy values from the day we started: excellent customer service for high quality and healthy ingredients. It is our objective to continue to grow by providing exciting new formulas and treatments to serve our healthy customers.

Beanfields Bean & Rice Chips
Nacho Bean & Rice Chips
Naturally Unsalted Chips
Sea Salt Chips
Sea Salt & Pepper Chips
Pico de Gallo Chips
As many of you know from from reading my blog, and the past reviews I have done, I’m a huge believer in eating GMO free foods. Beanfields snacks offers a yummy selection of chips that are GMO Free, Corn Free, and Gluten Free, Cholesterol-Free, Trans Fat-Free, and Preservative-Free. Beanfields sent me their whole line of delicious chips to try, and I have to say I was very much impressed by them. Read on and find out what flavor was best!
Snack Like A Grown-Up, Love It Like A Kid
Nacho Bean & Rice Chips
My Findings: These snacks are amazing and are much better than the name brand nacho chips out there. The Nacho Bean & Rice Chips do not have the harsh taste that some of the other name brand nacho chips have, and they have a wonderful light taste to them. My fiancé and I could not stop eating these, and we use to (way back in time) eat the name brand nacho chips and would always feel sick afterwards. Now, we can enjoy a healthier tasting nacho chip without all the added preservatives and chemicals.
Naturally Unsalted Chips
My Findings: Unfortunately I did not enjoy these chips. They did not have any flavor to them. I would have loved if they would have put a hint of flavor on the Naturally Unsalted Chips, and I think they would have tasted far better. However if you are looking to cut down on your sodium then these might be the chips for you. =-)
Sea Salt Chips
My Findings: I’m a huge fan of chips that have sea salt on them and Beanfields “Sea Salt Chips” delivered. Where can you get a good source of fiber with the added bonus of sea salt? Beanfields “Sea Salt Chips” is where.
Sea Salt & Pepper Chips
My Findings: I’m not a huge fan of chips that have pepper on them, but I really rather enjoyed Beanfields “Sea Salt & Pepper Chips.” The flavor combination went really well together and these chips also have a great source of fiber and are GMO free and corn free.
Pico de Gallo Chips
My Findings: Mexican lovers you are gonna love these chips, I guarantee it. Beanfields “Pico de Gallo Chips” have a nice zesty flavor to them, and can be eaten by themselves or you can enhance the flavor even more with your favorite organic salsa. I really enjoyed these chips, and will most defiantly try them again.
We take wholesome and nutritious beans and blend them with long grain rice to create delicious snacks that are loaded with fiber and protein. In fact Beanfields Bean & Rice chips contain double the fiber and protein of most corn tortilla or potato chips.
One taste and you will rejoice knowing you have found a delicious alternative to the empty calorie snacks that fill the snack aisle. Beanfields Snacks are farmed and made in the USA. They are gluten-free, cholesterol-free, trans fat-free, preservative-free and free of every one of the FDA’s eight most common ingredients that trigger food allergies.
Beanfields is a family owned company and values shape everything we do. We use “kinder prosperity” to express our commitment to help update food and business practices. A percentage of our profits are committed to profit-sharing with employees and stakeholders, and contributed to non-profit efforts to help farmers grow healthier, more sustainable crops.
