Pets are naturally inclined to lead eco-friendly lives, which explains why cats always insist on washing themselves and why 9 out of 10 dogs drive hybrid cars. Help your pawed pals and your planet find a peaceful coexistence with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of natural pet products at Whiskers, redeemable at either of the shop’s locations in Manhattan and Queens.
As a pioneer of the alternative pet-care movement for more than 20 years, Whiskers offers organic and chemically cleared goods to city-dwelling critters and their conscientious keepers. Begin your pet’s lifestyle overhaul with phytonutrient-rich vitamins from Udo's, which contain whole food concentrates for healthy coats, increased energy, and keener squirrel radar ($15.99 for cats, $25.99 for dogs). Or, upgrade treat time with high-protein, low-fat buffalo strips from Rosie’s Rewards, which satisfy snack-cravers who lack the opposable thumbs necessary for hitchhiking to Denny’s ($13.99). Herbal aids for pet cough ($17.99 for 2 oz.), dirty ears ($9.99 for 0.5 oz.), and upset tummies ($45 for 8 oz.) make up Whiskers’ own line of natural remedies. Less-than-lustrous locks get love from Dr. Shawn’s organic, all-in-one shampoo, infused with tea tree oils, aloe vera, and coconut ($22.99 for 16 oz.).
Reward a responsible retriever with an earth-borne toy, such as the canine chuck-it, a ground-reaching handle that picks up and re-punts tennis balls slimy from stints in Fido’s mouth cave ($11.99+). Or, treat a feline friend to a catnip cigar, helping self-conscious cats to finally fit in at canine-centric poker matches ($4.99). Whiskers also extends its holistic hands to help birds and small animals, allowing owners to load up on green goodies for every member of their furry, feathered family.
