    1. A Furbo dog camera that lets you talk to and give your pup treats from afar. The Alexa-compatible, full HD Wi-Fi pet camera lets you video chat with your pet and keep an eye on them when you're not home. It even has bark sensors so you know if something's happening in your home—or, you know, if your very good boy is being a bit barky for no reason.

    Promising review: "I bought this item for my girlfriend who is deployed overseas in Bahrain. She loves her dog more than anything so I knew this would be a perfect gift for her. The first night I had the Furbo I was awaken several times in the middle of the night by high pitched squealing and giggling of glee from my girlfriend not being able to contain herself. She was so excited to see him, talk to him, and give him treats and OH BOY does she like giving him treats! By the time she gets back from her deployment I am sure he will be overweight and wont be able to run to her when she gets home. Thanks, Furbo, your product is awesome and we all love it!" –Alex Battle

    2. A case of Greenies dog treats for your pup because, trust us, your fur baby will go bonkers for these tasty and convenient snacks. Designed to look like a toothbrush, these treats work to remove plaque and tartar buildup, which means fewer vet appointments and dental issues for your pup in the long run. Plus, they taste good!

    Promising review: "When I visited the home of a relative a few months ago she gave me a few of these that had been broken in half to take home to my dog. When I got home he smelled them in my pocket and started jumping around until I gave him one. When I gave it to him he started flipping it around and playing with it before eating it. He liked them so much I began buying them but I find them too pliable to break in half so I just give him one whole one each day. My dog likes other treats too but does not act like this with them. Now he stands by where I keep them and cries for one every morning! My husband said it is almost like catnip for dogs because of how he plays with them. Now I have to make sure I never run out because my dog loves these so much! When the Amazon box or sometimes an envelope arrives he must be able to smell them because he is so happy and tries to help me open the box." –FLCedar

    3. A flea-prevention medication so your cat doesn't have to get unnecessarily itchy. The top-rated Advantage II medication comes with six doses, which honestly makes the price tag well worth it.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "With my review I am going to address points from reviews posted. This review is only based on my personal experiences. 1. Price. Yes, this product is expensive. However, it's absolutely worth it. It works very well and I've always felt that my cats not suffering is more important than the price tag. Also, here on amazon is significantly cheaper than other places. (Saved $20 buying it here instead of 1800petmeds) 2. Balding. There are a few things that need to be known about this product. Make sure you are using the appropriate dose for your cats. Weigh them. Do not assume their weight. If they are on the borderline, use the smaller dose or don't use all of the larger one. Also, don't put it all in one spot. Make a line from the back of their neck to their shoulder blades. 3. "Frontline is cheaper and does the same thing." Incorrect! Frontline is cheaper but in order for Frontline to work, the fleas have to bite the animals. This product does not require them to be bitten. 4. "Fleas didn't go away." You cannot expect any flea product to completely rid your home of them. It takes a minimum of three months to completely get rid of them if you actively fight against the fleas. You need to vacuum your floors and furniture every day at least for a while. You also need to keep up with your laundry and wash blankets regularly, including your bedding. And it's also very important to be spraying your furniture down with flea spray. RAID or Hotshot works wonders for this! Spray your furniture and bedding down every night. I also spray in the crevices of my apartment because fleas like to hide. 5. "Fleas were going everywhere so I had to give them a flea bath." Do NOT do this. If they jump off your pets it's a GOOD thing! That means the product is working. If you bathe them before the product has time to set it, you just wasted your money. This is why you need to be keeping up with prevention in your home. They're jumping off your animal because the product is working. Vacuuming, washing, and spraying is what will combat the infestation. You CANNOT get rid of fleas completely in a short period of time so don't expect a miracle. That's where people get disappointed. Let the product do its job and play catch up for the next few months. And make sure you're keeping up with the doses!!"Kmal

    4. A calming donut-shaped bed that will make your pet feel snuggled from all angles. The ultra-fluffy bed is made with faux shag fur which makes pups feel like they're safe in their mother's nook. So sweet, right?

    Promising review: "I don't think there's anything I don't like about this cuddly soft bed. As soon as I took it out of its packaging and shook it out, I tossed it on the floor and my puppy lost his mind. He ran and jumped in and out of it several times. Not only has it become his favorite place to snuggle up for a nap, it's also a place for him to play and have fun. His little toys get somewhat lost inside and it's a game for him to root around and find them again. It's extremely high quality as well. You can tell from the stitching that this bed is going to last a good long while. Very impressed with the quality for the price. It's the best new puppy purchase I made." –Banshee

    Get it from Amazon for $57.97 (available in eight sizes and two colors).

    5. An automatic dog and cat feeder so you don't have to worry about your pet going hungry if you can't get home in time for their regularly scheduled meal. The Wi-Fi-enabled bowl links to iPhones and Androids so that you can easily feed your pet from afar. Or, if your hands are full but you're at home, you can simply ask Alexa to feed your fur baby and the bowl will kick into drive. Talk about convenient!

    Promising review: "Works great, and I cannot recommend this enough! My cats throw up if they eat too much, so it is great being able to feed them very small amounts (1/8 cup) per feeding, up to 12 times per day. I upgraded to this WiFi model from the non-WiFi model and it is quite nice having the option to feed them with a click of a button on my phone. I also bought the splitter adapter that will make it work for two cats. This is a great and inexpensive alternative to buying a second feeder for almost $200. My cats used to fight over the one food bowl, but now that I can have two separate bowls there is no more fighting!" –Beachbum

    Get it from Amazon for $169.95.

    6. A spray pet deterrent to keep curious pets out of places they shouldn't be. The motion-activated spray is odorless, stainless, and harmless, but does the trick to deter pets from nosing around in closed-off rooms, the kitchen, on countertops, in bathroom trash cans, and anywhere else they like to get into mischief.

    Promising review: "Okay, let's be frank. This doohickey is expensive, but so is repairing the damage from the destructive behavior of some cats. I love my cats, but they don't all love one another. Their hatred for one another eventually devolved into a contest to see who could take over the territory that is my child's closet by continually peeing in the corner. I cleaned it to repeatedly, using appropriate products to neutralize the odor, only to have them repeat the process the next day. My kiddo could no longer play in his room, and the smell was so strong that it hit you the second you walked in our front door. Finally, I closed the kiddo's door and ordered the Ssscat, recalling many hilarious videos of its effectiveness on YouTube. I waited until it arrived and I had a few hours and I pulled up the carpet, cleaned the floor with Nature's Miracle, dried it out, replaced the befouled sections of carpet, and then popped batteries into the Ssscat and set it up so any curious feline going towards the closet would get a blast to the face. The cats contentedly played in his room and watched my progress all day. I was the only one who set off the Ssscat. Then, it was bedtime. Kiddo got all snuggled into bed and was just drifting off when my husband heard a loud crash and ran into his bedroom to find that, lo and behold, a cat had wandered into the closet to leave a message, only to get a very serious message from me! One of the other cats then tried it a few minutes later, only to come flying out of the bedroom like a bat out of... Well, you know where. Since then, none of the cats have gone anywhere near the closet and my house now has the normal level of cat aroma you would expect for a household with too many damned cats, but well-maintained litter boxes. I couldn't be happier. Overall review: this thing is absolutely worth the price. I only wish I had thought to set up a motion-activated camera to capture the cats' responses to watch later, because, honestly, after all the damage they caused, I can't pretend that seeing them terrified by some pressurized air wouldn't be totally satisfying." –M. Fletcher

    7. A bag of Blue Buffalo adult dog food to cater to your aging fur baby's health. The best-selling pellets are made with chicken, whole grains, and healthy fruits and veggies to ensure your pup gets all the nutrients it needs.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I decided to do a taste test with my dog. I put a little bit of her IAMs dog food on one plate and then on another plate I put Blue Buffalo food, which she had never tried before She sat about three feet away waiting for my signal. When I told her it was okay to move, she first sniffed the IAMs food and then sniffed the Blue Buffalo dog food. She proceeded to eat the Blue Buffalo dog food first. This indicates a clear preference for Blue Buffalo. So we are now switching to a better quality premium dog food. It costs more, but our dog is family. If you compare the ingredients, you’ll see that blue Buffalo definitely has the higher quality ingredients so it is worth it and so is our pug!" –News2You

    8. A pack of stain-removing pads that you will thank yourselves for buying over and over again. These seemingly-simple pads can work absolute wonders. Simply place them overtop stains—pet-related or otherwise—and watch as they not only lift the color, but the scent too. It's like magic!

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "These things are AMAZING. They are magical. If you have a pet that has accidents in the house, these are a MUST-HAVE. After your pet has an accident, all you need to do is open up the packet, place the pad on the accident spot, and then step on the pad to release the magic formula. Leave it there for at least half an hour or up to 24 hours. Why the discrepancy, you might be asking? Because these pads work on DRIED STAINS. Holla!!!! My puppy has been driving me bonkers with accidents in the house, but I don't sweat it anymore thanks to these pads. They are seriously miracle-workers and I will always have a supply of them in my house going forward." –Lisa Koivu

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    9. A dog carrier backpack so you can carry your small fur baby with you wherever you go. The bag features a hole for their head to pop out, as well as a waterproof bottom in case they have any accidents or have muddy paws inside the bag. This all means that you can finally bring your little ones along on hikes and long walking adventures without worrying if they'll get too tired to walk.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "We bought this backpack for our Yosemite/Mammoth hiking trip with the dogs. Here are the highlights: It's really well made. It's comfortable to wear — even lugging around a furry rascal. I love the water bottle pockets on the side and the laptop pocket inside. Our 13-pound Chihuahua fits in it perfects and love looking out the flap. The Chihuahua is just as happy being fully zipped in when transporting him. The ONLY thing I would add is a key hook that many backpacks have so you know exactly where your keys are after a day of hiking. But overall this pack is awesome! We couldn't be happier with this purchase." –Zazzie Perez

    Get it from Amazon for $107.96 (available in two options).

    10. A bottle of wild Alaskan salmon oil that will help support your pet's skin, coat, joints, and immune system as they age. The liquid supplement can be put in their food or water for easy consumption that will lead to a healthier fur baby.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "My poor pitbull baby was super dry and itchy! He had tons of dandruff and was getting bald spots and sores...he almost looked like he had mange! Oatmeal baths weren't doing the trick either! I took him to the vet and they ruled that out and thought maybe he had a flea allergy. But he didn't have any fleas in sight on him! They said it could flare up with just one bite even so they wanted to put him on steroids to see if it would help. It did! But it also made him pee while he slept and he'd wake up so embarrassed and ashamed because he knows better than to go to the bathroom inside. He couldn't help it though being on those. I finished out the prescription and his issues came back even worse!! So I did a little reading and thought I'd give salmon oil a shot. Let me tell you, I AM SO GLAD I DID!!! His sores went away, his fur came back, and he has little to no dandruff! This stuff has been amazing!! I am on my third bottle of this stuff and it's just been great! The pump that comes with the bottle does leak so I don't like to use that, but the cap that's on it works just fine! I put two squirts on his food in the morning, and two at night and he just eats it right up! I love this stuff!" –Amazon Customer

    11. An orthopedic pet mattress so your fur babies can be as comfortable as possible whenever they take a snooze. The contoured bed is especially great for older dogs, as their bones and bodies as a whole become weaker, which means the added support of this mattress will ensure they keep comfy regardless.

    Promising review: "My dog loves this bed. It is not heavy and it is not flimsy. She is 94 pounds and this bed does not flatten with her on it. I was pleasantly surprised. The top is very soft too. Her last bed was almost $200, so the price on this was fantastic. I highly recommend." –Tammey

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99+ (available in 10 sizes and 18 colors).

    12. A dog training collar to teach your pup to be on their best behavior. The buzzing collar comes with three training modes, vibration, and gentle shock (don't worry, it won't hurt them). It's rain-proof and can be used up to 1,000 feet away, so you can continue to train them even if they try to scurry off.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This training collar works like a charm. It fits great on my hyperactive 8-month-old lab, who weighs around 65 pounds. She like to jump on people and to run out of the back yard whenever she gets the chance. But, after two weeks of using this training collar, those bad behaviors are almost gone. It's a life-changing product. I highly recommend it!" –Sheng Song

    Get it from Amazon for $39.98.

    13. A waterproof hammock for the backseat of your car so your pups can sit and lay down wherever they please without you worrying about them getting your car messy. In addition to keeping your seats protected, the hammock is made with four layers, including a cushion, so your pet will feel comfy, too. Best of all, it can be easily wiped clean and thrown in the wash — phew!

    Promising review: "I have a Swiss shepherd and he often gets very messy. I used to take him to the park and lake without seat cover and my car was a big mess. My last cover broke pretty quickly so I replaced it with this one. I love the non-slip bottom, it is waterproof and protects my car seats from mud, water and fur. The seat belt openings are large enough. This is a great product, high quality and reasonably priced." –electric

    Get it from Amazon for $33.96+ (available in two sizes and four colors).

    14. A pet ramp so your dog can easily get in and out of your SUV or truck. While most pups can easily jump into sedans, trying to get into taller vehicles can be quite the challenge. Thankfully, this extendable, nonslip ramp makes it easier than ever.

    15. An automatic litter box to save you from having to forever get hands-on with your cat's potty situation. The bestselling litter box is designed to sift out clumps so that your cat won't track litter all through the house. It's a win-win for everyone involved.

    Promising review: "The crystals work so well, I didn't think they were using the box, I thought they were just going in and out. I had to witness them using it to believe it. No smell at all!! I will be buying another down the road." –Gloria Silvers

    Get it from Amazon for $129.95.

    16. An artificial grass bathroom mat that will teach your pup to potty in the right places. The odor-resistant, antimicrobial mat features a three-layer pad that makes cleanup less of a hassle — simply rinse with soap and water and you're good to go! (While rinsing pottied-on mat might not seem all that glamorous, it's a lot more eco-friendly than constantly buying disposable mats, so keep that in mind.)

    The artificial grass pad
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This might be the best doggie 'accessory' we've bought so far! We've had the Petmaker Puppy Potty Trainer for just over a month now, and it's proven absolutely invaluable for our 11-pound miniature poodle. We bought this potty — as opposed to the many other potty options — because it was the only one that would fit inside of a 48-inch crate and still leave room for a doggie bed and water bowl. When we're out, we can leave our dog in the crate and not have to worry about making her hold it too long. We also had a problem with our dog getting up in the middle of the night and pottying on the living room carpet, and this has completely solved that issue. TRAINING: For training, when she started doing her 'potty dance' late at night, we'd set her inside the crate and then physically block her in with our body (instead of closing the door), so she didn't feel locked in. The first several times, she'd wander around the crate confusedly, push at us with her nose in an attempt to get out, and then finally relieve herself on the potty. Each time, we'd give her a ton of praise and petting for using her potty. Initially, she really did NOT want to use the potty and used it only because she was trapped and had no other options, so we spent a lot of time sitting in front of the crate waiting for her to go (takes patience!), but the waiting time got a teensy bit shorter each time. After two weeks of doing this at night (we take her out during the day), she started wandering over towards the potty when she needed to go but she wouldn't actually use it unless we put her inside and waited for her to go. Now it's been a month and she just uses the potty when she needs to — with ZERO accidents in the house! USAGE/CLEANING: The Petmaker potty has a layer of faux grass that sits on top of a raised plastic drainage tray, and both of those fit inside a larger black tray. The grass and the drainage tray aren't 'locked in' and could slide around if you push them, but this hasn't been an issue for our 11-pound dog. We put a potty pad underneath the drainage tray, which makes clean-up MUCH easier. Our dog uses the potty multiple times per week and we haven't had any issue with smell. We change the pads every one to two days and then clean the whole potty in the tub with a diluted bleach solution about once a week. Our dog has shown zero interest in chewing on the grass or the pad, but she isn't much of a chewer in general." –LJA

    17. An outdoor cat house so your furry feral friend has a covered place to weather any storms or other extreme weather. The weather-proof structure has windows and is easy to assemble — no tools necessary!

    The outdoor cat house
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I've had the product for about one month now, and it is a quality product. It took a lot of waiting for the cat to use it, but it did for the first time today when we had a light snow. Most of the snow is melted in the photo, but he/she curled up in a ball and has slept for over three hours inside of it after I took this photo. It's worth every penny if it affords it even a day's rest. No doubt that it will house him/her well through the rest of the winter. Thanks to another buyer, I followed the recommendation that I leave off the front door." –Ann

    18. A nearly 5-foot cat tower for your fur babies to have the time of their lives. The cat tree house features multiple levels, scratching posts, and places to lay and hide, making it a fun space for your kitties to lounge and explore.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "So after about 10 beers and two shots of fireball a few nights ago I decided my cat NEEDED a cat condo. Immediately. So I ordered the first one that popped up. I'm usually one to read reviews on 15 products before I buy. But I didn't... So two days later when I figured out what I had done I went back and read the reviews and noticed some common complaints. 1) The size. Everyone complained that this was for small kittens and not up to 'medium-sized' 10-pound cats. I think some of you may be in denial about your cat's battle with morbid obesity and might need a reality check on what 10 pounds is. My 7-pound cat habitually hangs out on a three-inch window sill. The condo is PLENTY big enough for her. 2) The Instructions. They are pictorials, no written instructions. Apparently, for some, this is hard to comprehend. I must be of above-average intelligence because it took me less than an hour to assemble with the assistance of my 6-year-old. 3) Stability. If it's not stable you didn't do something right. I feel confident that if it were big enough, it would hold your 35-pound cat and not tip over. It is very heavy and the screws tighten nicely and easily. Overall I feel like this was one of my least regretted drinking and priming purchases." –Avery

    19. A faux shag pet blanket to make your pet feel as cozy as possible. The long shag design makes pups feel like they're being cuddled by their biological mother which is honestly adorable. It's not accident-resistant but it is machine-washable so it balances out.

    Promising review: "These blankets are absolutely amazing. I bought two of them and threw one of them out on the floor and all four of my Maltese dogs dove on it and I could tell they were loving on it. Rubbing their faces on it, digging, hard to explain. It was like cat nip to a cat but in a loving way. Even my grouchy 2-year-old male jumped on it first and didn't want to share. He looked soooo happy! I wish I could show the video but its way too long. Here are pictures of the mom and her 8-week-old pups. They love this blanket. It's made extremely well and sherry and friends has an excellent reputation for the beds which are fantastic as well. Highly recommended." –LittleMoosieandWillowsMom

    20. A 20-gallon fish tank so your fish friends have plenty of room to swim around. The tank itself comes with decor and LED lighting, so it will even serve as a piece of attention-grabbing decor in your home.

    The fish tank with the LED lights shining into it
    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is the best tank I’ve ever had. It is a great purchase, and an even greater purchase because the price is so reasonable. My favorite feature is the hood. It has hinges! Anyone who has ever cleaned a tank knows that it’s a pain to work with the loose hood and wires, etc. The lights in the hood are also easily installed, and easily replaced. Also, this was my first 20-gallon tank as I’ve always had 10-gallon ones. I was worried that it would be twice as big, but it’s really only a little wider, a little longer, and a little taller. It is not a huge tank and it only takes up about a two-by-three-foot area of space in my office." –Maiden Heaven

    Get it from Amazon for $107.06.

    21. A Petmate two-door pet crate that makes getting skittish pets to and from the vet less of a hassle. The airline-approved crate is applauded for its double-door design that lets cats walk in as they please or be placed in from above — which, honestly, is probably safer (read: less chance of scratches) for the owner and the vet, as your pet will be less suspecting of being removed from the top.

    22. A heated pet bed so your pupper doesn't catch a chill at night. The ovular bed has bolster sides for them to rest their head and plugs in for low-wattage heat that's cozy as can be.

    The plug-in electric beds
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These beds were a hit right out of the box! I have two beagles and they love snuggling at night. The problem is that they were taking over my bed and I found my space shrinking more and more every night. So, I began training my dogs to sleep on their own beds but they would refuse. They destroyed so many beds I can't even count them. Then I found these electric beds and voila! My dogs loved them immediately. Just look at the picture! Those are two happy beagles. Because these beds are warm my dogs love snuggling in them and it made the transition from my bed to their beds a breeze." –Juliana

    23. A set of folding pet steps that will make it easier for your small or aging pup to get into bed or up on the couch. The four-step stairs feature skid-proof liners on each step so that your upper won't slip while making their way from one level to the next.

    24. A trunk cargo liner so your pup(s) can stretch out on long car rides without you having to worry about them having an accident. The waterproof liner is easy to clean and, in addition to keeping your trunk dry, will keep it protected from scratches, too. Just make sure to buckle your pups in with a pet seatbelt so that they don't go bouncing around in the back.

    The cargo cover
    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is exactly what I wanted. I researched on Amazon the many choices, read the reviews, etc. The quality in my opinion is excellent, esp for the price! I love the fabric and design and I had no problem fitting it into my Subaru Forester. It is well made, great fabric, thoughtfully designed, and well put together. The plungers stay put as do the buckles around the headrests. I peeled back about an inch of the paper on the velcro side strips and so far they are holding the sides up well. If that changes in the future I don't think using the entire velcro strip on each side will harm the hard plastic on my car sides. Update after use: This has to be the best one on Amazon! Just discovered the corner zippers which makes it even more protective. I recommend trying keeping the velcro strips stuck together as well as keeping the paper on, then peeling back just enough to adhere a short piece. If it doesn't work in your car, I'm convinced these particular strips will not harm the hard plastic sides of my car. It fits my Subaru Forester as if it were custom made! Having this in my possession now I'd have paid more, so this is just the best deal and top quality product for those wanting to protect their cargo space. Don't waste more money buying another that may not be half as good!!" –MaineGal

    25. A de-shedding tool to making combing your cat less of a struggle. Nearly $30 for a pet comb may seem unnecessary, but The FURminator is designed to gently remove any loose hair from the undercoat without wreaking havoc on the topcoat or skin. So, if you ask us, we say "Well worth It!"

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I thought the Furminator was all hype. I've used other brushes for years and couldn't see the point of spending $30ish on something that I could get for $4 at any box store. Sadly, my cats are getting older and their grooming is not as thorough as it used to be. I feel like I brush them but I still find little cat hair tumbleweeds floating around the floor, or my cats have the occasional furball. I decided to try the Furminator and see if it could help. All I can say is, it's worth the hype. I brushed my cats last weekend until they gave me the 'you can stop now' signals. I started brushing one of my cats last night for about 20 minutes and removed a mound of fur that could be used to create another cat off of her. At no point did she seem uncomfortable, giving me the 'stop' signs like pawing at the brush or walking away. I continued to brush her this morning and even more fur came off. I know it likely has to do with it being summer, but I'll try and brush them for 15 or so minutes each a day over the next few weeks and see if it reduces the amount of hair floating around. The handle is really comfortable, and the brush itself is really effective at removing the hair. Overall I'm very pleased with this purchase." –Ashley

    26. An interactive dog toy that might be more than you'd normally spend on a dog toy but will keep your pup entertained and full, so pretty worth it, we think. The toy is designed to bury treats so that your pup has to sniff them out. Cute, no?

    Promising review: "My little dog loves this dog puzzle! He has very high energy and even with two 30 minute walks everyday can play for hours. We got several different types of dog puzzles and this one is definitely one of the favorites. I hide several small treats in the mat to engage him for 10 plus minutes. Out of all the puzzle this was the easiest for him to pick up on but has yet to get bored of it. He knows when I bring it out it means treats! I would recommend this for smaller dogs, mine is about 20 pounds." –Jessica

    27. A laser cat toy to keep your kitties occupied for long periods of time. Sure, it might be a tad pricier than your typical catnip mouse or bell ball, but the laser will keep them occupied in a single space so that you don't have to keep a constant eye on them.

    Promising review: "This is a must-have for dogs and cats. This thing is like crack to my dog! lol. He cries and begs to turn this on all day every day. Press the button once to start it with a solid light. Press it again to shut it off. Press the button again to turn it on with a blinking light. It zig-zags left to right and up and down. It randomly stops for a second every five seconds or so." –Jerry

    28. A spacious birdcage so your fluttery friends won't feel cooped up. The wrought iron cage measures 53 inches tall (though the cage itself is 27 inches) and has a shelf to store whatever birdie supplies you see fit. Best of all, it's on wheels so you can easily move it from one room to the next.

    Promising review: "I just received this cage and assembled it myself in less than 30 minutes. I was skeptical with all the negative reviews but I’d like to say that the cage arrived undamaged. The entire cage was zip-tied together. Bubble wrap separated cage sides from rubbing together. The parts came in a separate box and also included a small Phillips screwdriver. Instructions must be read and it is easier if you know that the smaller screws are for the cage and the larger ones are for the base. Do not tighten screws until it is fully put together! It’s very simple and a really nice cage for the money! I’m very impressed! Definitely a good buy!" –Linda J. Molina
