Home Living : September 23 2008
8 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, September 23, 2008 Keeping kitty safely at home » ADVERTISING FEATURE Keep cats in or out of your yard with Oscillot's safe, cost-effective and unobtrusive system of rotating paddles mounted along fencelines. The rotating paddles prevent cats from scaling and climbing over painted steel fences and walls, as they cannot gain traction. Oscillot Pet Containment Systems manager John Bok says cat registration and microchipping have already been introduced by many councils and shires, with some also offering subsidies for desexing cats. ''One of the more controversial issues has been the proposed introduction of night curfews,'' he said. ''This system confines pet cats to their own back yards, without inhibiting their natural instinct to roam.'' It can keep unwanted cats out of back yards where they're causing a nuisance. It prevents contact between un- desexed cats which results in unwanted kittens, feeding the feral cat population explosion or adding to alarming euthanasia statistics. RSPCA Australia CEO Heather Neil says the RSPCA is happy to support a product that keeps pet cats safe and helps address Australia's unmanageable cat population. ''A cat's territory can extend well beyond its own backyard, which can frustrate neighbours, increase the risk of fights and, for undesexed animals, can lead to pregnancies and unwanted kittens,'' she said. ''That's why it's so important to keep cats in at night and if possible keep them from roaming during the day.'' Oscillot is now available.

With the rising cost of living in today's fast-paced society, it's good to know that companies are trying to help us save our perishables and money without consuming our time. Vacuum sealing is a super- quick and efficient way to prolong the life and freshness of food. The new Breville Vac2Pac BVP500 Food Sealing System is compact, lightweight and simple to use, with an intelligent one-button operation for simplicity. You can vacuum seal practically anything, including meat, poultry, fish, vegetables, fruit, coffee beans and leftovers. Vacuum sealing can be used in tandem with other forms of preservation, including freezing and drying. The system allows food to last for up to five times longer and gives you the option to buy in bulk. Food preservation relies on taking away the essential elements that cause food to deteriorate, such as oxygen that microbes need in order to break down food. The Breville vacuum sealing system takes away the oxygen by sucking the air out of the bag and sealing it with a heated strip that melts the sides of the bag together. It has a removable liquid catch tray for easy cleaning and comes with a 12-month replacement guarantee. Priced at $169.95, the Breville Vac2Pac BVP500 Food Sealing System is available from electrical outlets visit www.breville.com.au ..................................................
