Cat Toys on Sale Amazon – Funny moving fish toy for cats (Yes, there’s catnip in it!) On sale for $14.43 – Save 31%

You know we’re cat lovers around here, right? Our crazy boy Milo has gradually turned into quite a gentleman! And as cat lovers, we also know that keeping our cats active is important but oh so difficult to actually accomplish. Once cats are past a few years old, most of them get incredibly lazy – especially if they’re indoor cats.

So this flopping fish toy is a great idea. It has a built in touch sensor and starts flopping all around when your cat goes near it! So cute! It gets rave reviews from other cat owners, too. I am pondering getting this for our lazy boy kitty. Oh and it also makes sound! This should totally captivate even a sluggish, lazy cat.

Funny moving/flopping fish toy for cats – Interactive cat toys

Was $20.99, now on for $14.43 – but prices can change at any time. Enjoy this gift for your favourite feline – the catnip should really help ensure they use it. 😉 And when they have fun, I think we have even more!

Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy Extension

A picture to denote business owner calculating the canada wage subsidy program for their employees

The Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy Extension was just announced today by the prime minister this morning. The news is definitely a relief for the many businesses struggling to stay afloat during this pandemic. How long is the extension for and when does the program end? See below:

What is the Canada Emergency Wage subsidy? Quick Review

Here’s a quick summary from a CBC article today: “The program covers 75 per cent of wages, up to a weekly maximum of $847, for workers at eligible companies and non-profits affected by the economic slowdown caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Originally the program went from March 15, 2020 to August 29, 2020. This meant that an employer could collect a 75% wage subsidy on an employee’s wages up to 24 weeks as per the government’s website. For more details on the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy Program, please look at my original article regarding this.

Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy Extension

As mentioned earlier, the prime minister announced that the government will be extending the program until December 2020. The exact weeks extension and when you can apply for the extension was not announced as of yet. Once further details are given, we will update these details.

Conclusion

As mentioned above, many small businesses will welcome the extension of the program as the economy recovery from the pandemic is slow. Also, with uncertainties surrounding covid-19 such as a potential second wave, many businesses are worried about their future. And any help during this unstable time is good help for sure. Stay safe!
