Peanut Suet Nuggets
High Energy Bird Treat
Made with rendered beef suet and peanuts, so birds love 'em.. I usually sprinkle some on the ground near my feeders. These are easy for song birds to grab and carry away. My dog thinks these are dog treats and eats them when I put them out for the birds.

Kaytee Mealworms
High Protien - High Energy Treat
Dried mealworms are a great for birds that don't eat seeds. Also a great of source of proteien when parents have a nest full of open mouths to feed., as mealworms are great for parents and babies alike. I've even seen my backyard lizards eating the mealworms.

Kenley Bat House 
Weather Resistant Cedar Outdoor Bat Box with Large Double Chamber
I’ve seen a few bat boxes while hiking in the canyon near my house. Haven’t yet installed one, but am thinking this one 
sounds perfect!

Since bat species eat insects, they often consume their own weight in insects nightly. So, they’re our perfect allies when dealing with mosquitoes, beetles, caterpillars and other. Many bat populations are at risk, so an outdoor bat house is a great alternative to the use of chemicals.

When installed in bat territory, the Kenley bat shelter, with two rooms, has an 80% chance of being occupied. The 2-room interior forms grooved and well-spaced inside roosting area. It also has a rough platform and skerfs to make landing  easy.

Afoot & Afield: San Diego County
281 Spectacular Outings
If you're looking for places to hike in San Diego, this the perfect choice. It not only gives a variety of locations, but it has difficutly ratings and indicates which hikes are dog friendly. There are versions for hikes up and down California, as well as Tahoe/Reno, Las Vegas, and Denver areas.

Mammal Trac.ks & Sign
A Guide to North American Species
Wanna be able to tell a canine from a feline track? How about a raccoon from an opposum? Unlike some field guides, this book teaches about more than just the look of the track. It also goes into animal behavior, which can be the key to identifying the animal that left the track. It covers other sign left by animals, like scrapes, scat, beds, etc. This is a must have for anyone that is serious about learning tracking. 

Peterson Field Guide to Birds of North America 
Second Edition
There are many different field guides available, but I've always preferred Peterson because it has drawings that point out specific field marks. Photographs are great, but only show one view of the bird, and if the photo doesn't show the specific field mark that helps ID that species, its hard to be sure what you're seeing.

Peterson Field Guide to
Western Reptiles & Amphibians 
Fourth Edition
As with the bird field guide, this one has drawings and points out field marks. It also includes a section that helps you key out some animals to the specific species.. An example is the toes on lizard species are different.. Peterson also has more field guides for different parts of the country, and the same goes for birds.

Dehydrated Red Beets for Dogs
I love this product! The nutritional value helped my dog to regrow the missing fur on her legs and tail. Its just dried human grade red beets that have been shreaded! I add a little on top of her dry food, wet it, and add some canned food to the mix.

Cadet Duck Jerky
Gourmet Dog Treats
My dog absolutely loves this! It's like doggy crack for kidding. My dog is very picky, but she will never turn down this treat. I even cut some up and keep them in the car for emergency behavior issues.

Dental Treats - Original Flavor
For a picky dog, she's likes these, so she gets one after every meal. Because she's small, I give her the Teenies, but they come in several sizes. and smaller quantities.. They also have cat treats, but they are not soft and chewy.

Merrick Grain Free Food
Bison, Beef & Sweet Potatoe Recipe
With allergies, she needs grain free food. You'd think she'd want duck. Nope. She likes bison and beef flavors, so that's what she gets. When I can, I get the kind for smaller dogs, but its not always available.

World's Best Cat Litter
Multiple Cat Formula
I've tried several brands over the years, but have used this one for the last 10 years or so. It's made from corn, has a mild scent and little to no dust. It also clumps and is flushable. My cat loves it, and that's what's important.

Paw Parents
Washable Dog Pads 
This is for dogs, but I use it for one of my cats. She has back pain and refuses to step into a little box. I have this on the floor near the litter box my other cat uses. It's washable, so its easy to swap the dirty one for the clean one..

Dr. Bronner's - Regenerative Organic Coconut Oil

My favorite coconut oil! I use it for cooking, add it to bullet proof coffee, and even use it for making DIY salves and beauty masks. It makes me laugh, though, when the summer gets hot enough that it melts in my kitchen cabinet!

NutriBullet PRO
13-Piece High-Speed Blender
With 900 watts of power, this will handle dense whole foods, but the only thing I’m using this for is to blend my cats’ canned food with baby food. The baby food entices them to eat, and the canned food gives them the nutrition a cat needs. Blending up a batch of food means I spend less time in the morning and evening getting the cats fed. I keep the food in the fridge, and only spoon out enough for each meal when needed.
