How We Met

The first family to adopt me when I was tiny couldn’t keep me, so when I was 3 months old I went to live with Big Sis Becky’s boyfriend and his parents, who named me “Evie” because I had been “evicted”.

Becky was living there at the time, and we bonded so strongly that when Becky moved away to go to Chef School I got very sad and kept looking for her. Becky missed me just as much, so I ended up getting to go with her. We moved around a bit, but where we lived didn’t matter to me because we were together. When Becky would come home from a long tough day, I was there to meet her with my little stuffed gray elephant carefully laid out on the floor and lots of happy purrs.

After Becky graduated we moved in with Mom, Dad, Mallow & Mike. After a couple of years we moved out on our own again, but I’m older now and it was hard for me to adjust to spending so much time alone again. Becky decided that it’s best for me to be here where I can have lots of company during the day and not get lonely.

ood afternoon kitties. Today's topic: COUGHING!!!

Coughing is Nature's way of saying goodbye to dust, bacteria, tickly hairs and all other itchy things that sail into our throats...but in animals, coughing is UNUSUAL. While it normal for Fluffy to hack a hairball, constant coughing is something to look into.

PROTECT HIM FROM THE ELEMENTS: Like people, pets will occasionally cough in response to pollen, dust or even fumes from household cleaners. Try keeping your pet in another room when you clean and dust. Open windows if you can for him to breathe in fresh air...in warmer months you can keep him outdoors while you clean.

OUT DOWN THOSE SMOKES: You already know that smoking isn't good for you. It can be even worse for Fido and Fluffy. So do not smoke around your pets.

UP THE HUMIDITY: When air is dry, mucus in the throat & airways gets thick and sticky, signalling the body to cough. Take your pet in the bathroom when you shower and let him breathe in the moist air. Use a humidifier or a vaporizer in your home and it will help reduce the dryness in the air.

STOP IT AT THE SOURCE: If your pet is coughing more than once an hour, he can probably benefit from a cough suppressant. Use a product containing the active ingredient dextromethorphan, such as Robitussin Maximum Strength Cough Syrup. Ask your vet for the right does for your pet.NEVER give pets cough syrup containing aspirin or acetaminophen, which is dangerous to pets.

SLIP IT DOWN: If the cough syrup comes in a liquid form, tip the animals head up, pull the loose skin up from the mouth and make a funnel, then spoon in the proper amount.

TRY ANOTHER OTC: When coughing is caused by hay fever, giving an OTC like Benedryl can reduce the irritation..ask your vet for the proper amount to give your pet.

KEEP HIM TRIM: Weight is often a significant factor in older pets. Getting a few pound off of them will stop the coughing.

KEEP HER CALM: Stressful situations can trigger cough attacks. So when your pets symptoms flare up, give her extra love and attention until things are calm.

WHEN TO SEE THE VET: When pets start coughing, it is sometimes a warning sign that something serious is wrong, like pneumonia, asthma, bronchitis, or even a collapsed wind-pipe.

If Fido is coughing and also breathing rapidly or seems short of breath or has a swollen abdomen, get him to the Vet immediately.

Coughing is rare in cats, with the exception of expelling hairballs, so if Fluffy is coughing, take her to the Vet asap.

TOMORROW: CONSTIPATION!!

Hello Evie & family
             
Thank you for your prayers & sweet Happy Adoptiversary wishes. I have good mews to share today! Dr. William called Mommy this morning to report that my levels have decreased even more after the IV fluids for 2 days. My BUN = 38 and Creat = 2.5. He wants me to finish this bag of fluids today, so Nana & Mommy will pick me up this afternoon.

I will visit Dr. William next week for another bloodwork recheck and sub-q fluids. Our goal right now is for me to receive sub-q fluids once a week. We hope & pray that plan works out. We will find out more next week.

Thanks again for your continued prayers. James 5:16 says “The intense prayer of the righteous is very powerful.” Amen to that!

Hugs,
Q MerryBelle & Mommy Angela

Hey Evie
When I got up this morning to make my rounds..I discovered a few kitties under the tree sleeping away, and still another few by the fireplace, a few on the couch or under the table.

I just let them be and when they wake up, breakfast will be served or lunch..whichever they prefer.

I spotted Steve outside on the side lawn cuddled up under the fir tree all covered in a furry blanket...now why do you think he would choose to sleep outside when he could sleep in the warm castle? Ummm..must have gotten warm.

I think the party was a huge success, kitties were having a grand time, and Quincy with her disco songs really were a big hit.

I am happy to say they have a few days to relax before our next event on the 18th...just a sleigh ride out to Holly to drop off the gifts at their shelter and to see all the great Christmas decorations and have a nice lunch! I will have mom google Holly, MI to find us a place to eat!

See ya tomorrow night for MHL

Good afternoon kitties. Today's topic is: MATTED COATS!!

Is your pet having a bad hair day? Is her coat all gnarly and matted??? It's not much fun getting tangled up with matted fur. Hundreds of hairs can be involved in just one mat.

KEEP HER DRY: Once your pets matted hair gets wet, if they get wet, they will be even more difficult to remove. So keep her dry until you get the mats out.

LET FINGERS DO THE WALKING: Untangling a mat takes patience, but it can be done. Starting at the ends of the hairs and working inward--hair by hair if necessary--divide the mat in half with your fingers. Then divide it in quarters and pull til they come out. Then run a comb through the hair to make her coat smooth.

GIVE MATS THE BRUSH OFF: Your pets brush can be a great mat-fighter. Beginning near the tips of the hair and using short rapid strokes, gently brush upward. As the hair gets smooth, gradually work your way down toward the skin.

COAX THEM OUT WITH CORNSTARCH: A light sprinkling of cornstarch makes stubborn mats easier to pull apart.It helps the hair glide right out of the mat. As you work, add more cornstarch as needed.

SLIDE THEM OUT WITH SPRAY: Pet stores sell sparys made specifically for detangling mats. They typically contain lanolin, which helps hairs glide out of the mat. Make sure to get "Feline Friendly" if used for cats.

TAKE IT IN STAGES: If your pet has more than one mat or one large mat that's particularly tough, it's a good idea to do the job in stages. Work on them 10 minutes at a time, then give your pet extra love and maybe a special treat.

GET THEE TO A GROOMER: Professional groomers have special tools to help untangle tough mats. It's important to remember that even groomers sometimes give up and take a shortcut.

BRUSH HIM UP: Once your pet is mat-free, giving him a daily brushing will help keep his coat smooth. Since every pets coats are different, ask your local pet store for the best brush to use on your pet.

GET HER IN CONDITION: Using a conditioner will help keep your pets coat smooth and healthy. Apply the conditioner once a week. Follow label instructions and for cats, make sure it is "Feline Friendly".

TAKE A SHORT CUT: One fool-proof way to prevent matting is to keep your pets coat short. It's much better in the long run to prevent mats and having to get rid of them.

Wow, Evie
If I didn't know better (and I'm not too sure I do) I'd think you were celebrating the Catty Shack Bite Light Day!

The worst "real" fighters around here are probably Bee Gee and Grabby, and no one can figure out why. Grabby doesn't really bother anyone. All she does is BEG all day! You would think she's starving! (Come to think of it, Toby does the same thing). But moving right along, for some reason, Bee Gee has targeted Grabby as her punching bag. And Grabby reacts SO over the top! She will scream bloody murder, and run like she's being chased by demons. Well, she IS being chased by Bee Gee, and that's only slightly worse than demons! MOL

Good afternoon kitties. Mom is tired today, no sleep last night, worked all day today, so hopefully we will spell properly here: {MOL} Today's topic: WOUNDS!

In your view, she may be mans best friend, and he may be a purrfect pet. Unfortunately, the other critters in your neighborhood may not hold your four-legged friend in the same high regard! So when nasty things happen to your companion, like wounds, abscesses and bleeding, here are some tips:

TAKE PRECAUTIONS: Experts recommend muzzling your furry friend before treating injuries. If you happen to touch the sore area, he may lash out and bite. If you have no muzzle, try rolling gauze around her mouth and under her chin and tie it behind her ears.

TRY WRAPPING HER UP: If your pet is too small to muzzle, try wrapping her up in a towel, pillowcase or blanket before beginning treatment. To avoid making it difficult for her to breathe, don't wrap her too tight or for too long.

FIRST AID COMES FIRST: Stop the bleeding is number 1. As soon as possible, apply firm pressure to the wound with your hand or a clean piece of cloth....maintain the pressure until the bleeding stops. If the bleeding doesn't stop within 10 minutes, take your pet to the Vet right away.

MAKE THE FUR FLY: Once bleeding is under control, the next step is to clean the wound thoroughly. Start by trimming away any fur around the wound. TRY using an electric clippers if you have one, they are best for removing the fur without accidentally gouging the animal.

PASTE ON PROTECTION: To prevent fresh clipped hairs from falling into the wound, coat it with water soluble K-Y jelly. The hairs with stick to the jelly and can easily be washed away.

DO SOME DEEP CLEANING: Flush deep cuts or punctures with warm water to expel germ-covered hair or debris that might contaminate the wound. Soap and water are best, you may also apply a thin coat of triple antibiotic ointment.

BUBBLES MEAN TROUBLE: Never use an antiseptic such as Hydrogen Peroxide or rubbing alcohol because they further irritate the injured tissue.

LET 'EM LICK: When dogs & cats get injured, their tongues automatically go to work. Do not interfere with nature. plan. Licking does no harm and it may actually help heal the wound.

WATCH OUT FOR ABSCESSES: While most minor wounds will heal on their own, occasionally an abscess will form. An abscess is a pocket of pus beneath the skin in indicates infection. See your vet if you see an abscess on your pet...The Vet will probably need to drain the abscess and give your furry friend an oral antibiotic.

TOMORROW: MATTED COATS!!!

Good afternoon kitties. Today's topic is: BURRS!!!!

You had a great time hiking through the fields & forests, but now it's time to pay the price. It seems your companion has bought back a coat loaded with burrs. This is a real thorny problem and here are a few tips to help remove them with ease.

TAKE THE DRY ROAD: Once burrs get snarled into your pets coat, be sure to remove them before he gets wet. The tangled hair around the burr will shrink like wool after it gets wet and you'll have an extra hard time getting the burrs out.

PUT YOUR FINGERS TO WORK: It's really important to remove burrs as soon as you can so they don't dig in and create mats and irritation. If the burr has just recently lodged, you might be able to remove it with just your fingers or a pair of tweezers.. If it's been there longer, it may be tangled inside a hair mat. To Undo the mat, pull it apart with your fingers little by little, working from the end of the hairs down towards the root. After you remove the burrs, run a comb or brush his coat to smooth things out.

LOOSEN 'EM WITH LUBE: When a burr is really tangled, applying a little vegetable oil will help get it loose. You can also use a detangling spray available at your local pet store, make sure it is feline friendly if used on cats.

TRY THE KINDEST CUT: If you're having problems getting the burr out, especially on long-haired pets, try cutting them out. Use blunt-tipped scissors to avoid accidentally gouging your pet. Cut perpendicular to the mat, not parallel to it. Only cut the hair and not your pets skin.

TAKE YOUR TIME: Removing burrs can be very time-consuming & sometimes painful. Take frequent breaks when you're dealing with a dog or cat with many burrs. Remove them at 10 minute intervals, then praise your pet and give her a treat as a reward for being good and patient.

KEEP IT SHORT: Keeping your pets coat neatly trimmed won't prevent burrs from sticking, but it will make them easier to remove.

PASS UP PRICKLY PLACES: In the future, the one sure way to avoid burrs is to stay away from infested areas. If you know which field they are in, take another route.

TOMORROW: WOUNDS!!!

Good evening kitties. I trust you all had a good time yesterday at the skating party, so nice to see so many there. Today's topic is: DENTAL PROBLEMS.

Your cat doesn't have to flash his pearly whites for family portraits. Your pooch doesn't do smoochy love scenes for romantic movies...so why worry about their teeth? If you do not tend to pets teeth they may go away or worse You should care every bit as much for your pets teeth as you do your own.

USE MAINLY DRY FOOD: Feeding your pet dry kibble rather than canned food can help reduce plaque on teeth cause it is abrasive.

BONE UP ON BISCUITS: if you're going to give your pet a treat, a good choice for her teeth is a crunchy pet biscuit. The abrasive action of the biscuits will help keep her teeth well-scrubbed and clean.

BEWARE OF BONES: Your pet may adore gnawing on big bones from your favorite cut of meat, but they be tough on his teeth. If you don't want your pets teeth to fracture, avoid really hard bones and of course always avoid bones that spl,inter, like chicken bones.

REACH FOR THE RUBBER: Giving your pet a hard rubber toy with grooves is a great way to help keep his teeth white & Clean. Pet stores carry a wide variety of rubber toys for both cats and dogs.

LAUNCH A PLAQUE ATTACK:The idea of brushing your pets teeth daily can be a bit daunting at first, but it is the best thing you can do to keep her teeth healthy.

START EASY: Rather then lunging at your pet with a toothbrush in hand, get him used to the idea. Try rubbing his mouth daily, open it to check his teeth, and rub his chin and tell him he is a good boy {or a good girl}..do this daily for about a week.

PUT ON THE GAUZE: It is easier to start with gauze...life your pets lip on one side and with a little gauze wrapped around your finger, rub the outer surfaces of his teeth..do this daily for about a week.

GRADUATE TO TOOTHBRUSH: Use a soft child sized toothbrush or one specially designed for pets, you can also buy brushes that will fit over your index finger.

USE PASTE WITH TASTE: These days many pet toothpastes come in a variety of tasty flavors. NEVER use toothpaste made for humans as they contain detergents.

ALTERNATIVES TO TOOTHPASTE: If your pet is repelled by the toothpaste, here are some tasty alternatives. Try beef or chicken flavored bouillon, make a broth, let it cool and use that..it will help some if your pet doesn't care for toothpaste.

DO SOMETHING FISHY: Another alternative to toothpaste especially with cats is to moisten the toothbrush with water from a can of tuna..although he will not have fresh minty breath.

WHEN TO SEE A VET: If you notice a terrible odor in your pets mouth or you see redness around the gums or broken, rotting teeth, call your vet immediately.

TOMORROW: Them Prickly BURRS!

Hi Evie!
Oh, I can relate to the "some days it ain't easy being me" struggle. I AM the world's most happy cat. NO doubt about it! But every now and then even I get my rubber band wound too tight! Usually the target of my irritability will be Toby (even though he IS my best friend in the world! Maybe that's what friends are for - to sharpen my claws on his face? Nah, maybe not). My other favorite target is Sissy, my snotty little sister.

Now, as for Toby, we usually get into those idiotic slapping contests, where no one will give an inch, but no one is really "winning" either. And we'll keep that up until mom breaks it up. But Sissy can get on my nerves just walking through the room, depending on what day it is. I guess sometimes I just wake up on the wrong side of the litter box. :)

PS - I actually WOULD sleep in the litter box if mom would let me. And I have NO idea why!

Thanks for the game reminder, Evie
But we're going to have to hitch a ride with Kapt. Kelsee tomorrow night. Mom has to go back to Ann Arbor to the U of M Hospital for a CT scan and to return all the "samples" she's had to collect over the past several days. They all have to be returned within 72 hours of collection, except the one that IS a 72 hour collection! Anyway, since the hospital is 100+ miles away, Mom figured she'd better get it all done at once. Those people are nothing if not thorough! Hopefully they will be able to shed some light on her illness and get a treatment strategy worked out. Wish her luck! Hugs, Sasha and the Zoo Crew

Yes..I trust you..it is a shootout edit and mom really hates writing those out, but if you can't, she will!!! The Wings are lousy in shootouts...even they said they need to improve in that area, they are almost last in the league in shootouts winning only 1 in 6 so far on the season.

Sure, it's a dog-eat-dog world out there. But it's also a dog-eat-garbage & cat-eats-dead-mouse world. While dogs and cats usually vomit because of dumpster-diving, eating too much or eating to fast can upset their tummies.

GIVE HIM FAST RELIEF: When your pet is vomiting, his stomach needs a time-out. Don't give him food for 24-hours. A short fast may be all it takes to get his tummy back to normal...if he is still vomiting after 24 hours, call your vet.

FILL THE WATER BOWL: Once the worse is over, encourage your pet to drink water during his fast. The last thing you want is a dehydrated pet.

LET HER LICK ICE: If water makes them queasy, give him an ice cube. He will lick it slowly and it usually stays down. Put the ice cube in your pets bowl or on the floor, make sure the water stays down, then you can give him a cube every 15 minutes.

KEEP THE LID DOWN: To prevent your pet from drinking too much, keep your toilet lid down, especially if you use chemical fresheners, or your pet could walk away with a tummy full of bacteria.

MAKER HER MENU BLAND: After fasting for 24 hours, your pet may be ravenous for food. Start with a bland diet to gently work his system back into digesting. You can mix 2 parts of cooked white rice with one part cottage cheese or boiled skinless breast. Feed him small amounts every 4 hours, after a few days, if he holds it down, you can go back to his normal diet.

BRING IT BACK SLOWLY: After 2 days on the bland diet, you can start re-introducing his usual fare. Mix 1 part of the bland with his regular meal everyday for 4 days until he is back to normal.

CALM IT WITH KAOPECTATE: Even after the vomiting stops, your pet may not be feeling up to par. Kaopectate will soothe her tummy. Ask your vet for the recommended dosage for you pet.

DOGS ONLY: GET IN THE PINK: Giving your dog Pepto-Bismol will help soothe his tummy just as it does yours. Give 1 teaspoon for every 20 pounds of dogs weight.
NEVER GIVE Pepto-Bismol to cats. It contains ingredients cats don't metabolize well, so it can make them sicker.

WHEN TO SEE THE VET: If your pet is lethargic, disoriented & stumbling around like he's drunk, and throwing up a lot more then usual, call your vet immediately...your pet may have consumed a poisonous plant or gotten into some anti-freeze.

TOMORROW: DENTAL PROBLEMS!

Good afternoon kitties. Today's topic is all about our eating habits: FUSSY EATING!

You probably remember Morris, the finicky feline whose fussy eating catapulted him to commercial fame. If you have your own "Morris" at home and he turns his nose up at everything you have to offer, here are some tips to perk up his taste-buds.

WALK AWAY AT MEALTIME: Instead of begging your pet to eat, put his meal down on the floor and walk away, when he gets hungry enough, he will eat it {says who?}

SET A TIME LIMIT: If your pet isn't finished eating in an hour, pick up the food and put it away...try again at a later time, but only leave it out 1 hour...when your pet realizes if he doesn't eat he will go hungry, he will eat rather then starve.

TABLE THE SCRAPS: While you pet loves leftovers and mealtime handouts, those rich goodies may be spoiling his appetite...would you eat cat/dog food if you knew you were getting steak, chops, chicken or burger every night?

SOME LIKE IT HOT: If your pet walks away from dry kibble, try adding warm water. This will soften the food and make it more appealing. Who doesn't enjoy a nice warm meal?

TANTALIZE HER TASTE BUDS: If your pet refuses to eat, try something a little different, try putting scraps of roast beef or burger in her food and mix it up. Don't overdo it as you might wind up with a plump pet.

WHEN TO SEE THE VET: You know there's a problem when you whip up Fluffy or Fido's fave meal and he doesn't even want to take a lick. Most of the time it isn't nothing to worry about, some dogs can go 3-4 days without food...could be he has a tummy ache.

With cats however, liver function can be impaired even after short periods without food. So if Fluffy hasn't eaten in 2 days, take her to the Vet. Your Vet can discover why kitty isn't eating and recommend treatment!

TOMORROW: VOMITING!

Good afternoon kitties. Today we are discussing Animal bites to humans. Topic suggested by sisters, Dayzee, Duchess & Mischief.

Here's what to do if your 4-legged friend gets unfriendly.

NEVER PULL AWAY FROM A CAT: If your cat has your hand in his mouth, NEVER try to pull it away, he will think you are 'prey' and bite harder, instead, wait til he stops biting, or he may bite down damaging your muscles and tendons.
If you happen to have a spray bottle handy, you can spray Fluffy in the face, most cats do not enjoy being sprayed in the face and will run.

DO NOT WRESTLE WITH YOUR CAT: Unlike dogs, cats do not enjoy play wrestling, he may consider you attacking him and bite..if you try to pull your hand away suddenly he will bite down hard.

NEVER TRY TO PET A GROWLING CAT: If your cat is growling, he is probably angry and will swipe you or try to bite. Instead wait til kitty calms down and starts growling, then talk to her gently and then try to pet, if she growls, take your hand away.

TIPS IF ANIMALS BITE YOU:

ASSESS THE DAMAGE: Seek medical help for all bites except those that are minor.

THOROUGHLY WASH THE BITE: Animal bites--especially from cats--may transmit infection. Cleanse the wound thoroughly with warm water and soap to remove saliva, continue washing for a full 5 minutes.

CONTROL BLEEDING: If there is minor bleeding, cover the entire wound with a sterile gauze. You may put some ice against the gauze and elevate the wound above heart level to help stop bleeding.

BANDAGE THE AREA: When bleeding has stopped, cover the bite with a sterile bandage or clean cloth, tie or tape it loosely in place.

REDUCE PAIN: Use aspirin or acetaminophen to reduce pain. This is appropriate even if the bite did not break not break the skin., then apply ice if any swelling occurs.

GET A TETANUS SHOT: Any animal bite can lead to tetanus, so if you haven't had a shot in the past years, get one now!

SEE YOUR DR IMMEDIATELY: if you see redness, it feels hot to the touch or oozing or you think the bite is infected, see your DR ASAP....he will recommend an antibiotic and a course of treatment for you.

If you got bit by animal not your own, contact the animals owner to be sure if he is up to date on his rabies vaccine.

TOMORROW: FUSSY EATERS!

Good afternoon kitties! Hope you all had a pawsome weekend! Today's topic is: ALLERGIES!

Dogs & cats with allergies...you bet!!! Like their owners, many pets are sensitive to airborne annoyances--not just pollen or mold but also such things as dust, feathers and wool. Unlike humans, animals do not suffer from fever, red runny eyes and noses to sneezing attacks, but they do get all itchy.

CALM IT WITH COOL WATER: Giving your pet a cool-water soak{NO WAY!!} is a quick way to ease itchy skin.Bathe your pet for 5-10 minutes..make sure the water is cool, not cold or too warm, warm water aggravates the itch.

EASE IT WITH OATMEAL: To make soaks additionally soothing, vets sometimes recommend adding colloidal oatmeal{like Aveeno} to the bath water, it will help calm the crankiest itch!

ALLEVIATE WITH ANTIHISTAMINES: You can often bring allergies under control with antihistamines. Your vet may recommend an OTC drug like diphenhydramine {Benedryl} Your vet will tell you how much to give your pet.

SUBDUE IT WITH SUPPLEMENTS: To help calm itchy skin, try giving your pet fatty acid supplements which are used for relieving mange and other skin disorders. Your vet can recommend what type to give your pet.

KEEP HER INDOORS: In the Spring/Summer, Pollen is in the air--and in your furry friends coat and airways as well. To prevent pollen from pushing your pet around, keep her indoors as much as possible during pollen peak hours....early morning and evenings.

SMOOTH THE ROUGH EDGES: Carpet, heavy drapes and upholstery are variable magnets for dust & pollen. Try keeping your pets area free of drapes and carpet, you can use vinyl blinds over the windows.

CLEAN OFTEN: Daily cleaning will not eliminate dust and pollen, but it will keep it manageable. It is also a good idea to clean your pets bedding once a week. It is also a good idea to change your furnace/AC filters monthly.

LOOK TO THE LITTER: Many litter's contain chemical scents to make your cats bathroom smelling pretty...for you--not her. Try buying scentless and dust free litter.

FOR THOSE WITH DOGS: Dogs with allergies occasionally suffer from itchy feet and soaking them in Epsom salts can bring much relief. Fill the tub with just enough water to cover paws. Dissolve several cups of Epsom salts crystals in the water...stand your dog in the tub for 5-10 minutes, then gently dry her feet.

TOMORROW: When Fido or Fluffy you their humans!

Hi Evie!
Aw, very sweet picture. Are you really as sweet as you always look? Or you one of those killer cats in kitten mitten disguise?

Glad nothing (and no one) went up in flames when you got the tree set up. We haven't had a tree here for at least one geological age. (Yes, mom is THAT old...) Tree tipping was THE sport around here, so bad that mom actually had to tie the tree to the wall. She finally decided it wasn't worth the trouble. Even when it was tethered down, we still yanked everything off it that was yankable. Excuse us, but we thought all those dangly toy-like looking things were, well, toys. If you don't want us playing with toys, don't hang em all over a tree. In the living room!

Oh, and of course, there's the really stupid "no climbing the tree" rule. We're all, like, OMC, you bring in a TREE, cover it with TOYS, and then tell us, "Don't touch!"? Gee mom, you're a special kind of stupid, aren't you? At least you get to nap under it. Closest we get to a tree any more is when there's firewood stacked by the fireplace.... *sigh*

Good afternoon kitties!! Today's topic is: SHEDDING!!!

Whether you have a short-haired calico{like me} or a long haired collie{like Lassie}, the coming of Summer means there are more then just pollen in the air. Your pet can drop 1000's of hairs a day when she's shedding her winter coat.

GIVE HIM THE BRUSH OFF: If you're going to do one thing when your pet is shedding, you should brush brush and more brush...not all brushes are the same..you will need one that's suited for your pet..something that works for a long haired coat will not work well on a short haired coat.

GO DEEP: For brushing to be effective, you need to use firm, deep strokes. Short strokes are better then long ones cause they penetrate the coat more thoroughly.

RUB HER THE WRONG WAY: After brushing your pet from head to tail, reverse direction and go against the fur. This will help loosen hair you may have missed the first time.

DON'T GIVE HER ANY STATIC: Brushing against the fur will occasionally be a shocking experience for you and your pet. Her coat can build up a static charge and you can spark her. To prevent this, use a static-free brush.

SWITCH TO A COMB: After giving your pet a thorough brushing, you can pick up loads of additional hair by switching to a comb.

CONDITION HIS COAT: Occasionally applying a small bit of conditioner will make her coat smoother and easier to brush {especially for long haired pets}.

FOR CATS ONLY:
PUT ON PROTECTION: While some cats love to be brushed, others hate it, and will try to claw you, so putting on a pair of gloves will help save your hands and arms from scratches.

GET A GRIP: Holding Fluffy firmly by the scruff of the neck will help control her wilder instincts during grooming.

TOMORROW: ALLERGIES!!!

"Wreck the Halls With Balls of Folly"
That sounds like a winner! Right? Mom was laughing her hind end off over the burning humidifier story. It's okay, she has plenty of hind end to spare. We always have those "what's that smell?" moments at the start of heating season, all the heaters burning off the dust and lint from last year. Even though dad really does his best to get them all clean and clean the filters and blah blah blah, they STILL stink! Nothing says happy holidays like the smell of last years dust sizzling on the heater!

We're getting back to our "normal" temps finally. Only in the 30s at night, and might get into the 40s and even 50s by next week. Did the same thing a few weeks ago. Stupid weather. But it was nice on Thanksgiving, it was 60, and we had open windows! Yeehaw!

Good Morning kitties. Today's topic is: ASTHMA

It wasn't so long ago the only thing in your yard faster then your cat was the occasional fly lucky enough to get away. These days, even short outdoor romps are triggering asthma attacks causing wheezing, coughing and fatigue.

SHAVE OFF A FEW POUNDS: While every cat should be 'fit & trim', it's particularly important for cats with asthma. The signs of asthma can be worse if kitty is obese.

CRANK UP THE HUMIDIFIER: Breathing dry air irritates the airways, which can trigger attacks. Try putting a vaporizer or a humidifier to boost humidity levels to between 30 - 40%.

KICK THE HABIT: Surely your cat doesn't smoke, but 2nd hand smoke from you or your friends can make the problem worse. Pets are more vulnerable to smoke then people.

BRING HIM INDOORS: If you suspect hay fever is kicking off his attacks, it might help to keep him indoors at the height of pollen season.

CHOOSE THE RIGHT LITTER: Most cat litters puff up the dust whenever Fluffy starts to dig. Look for dust-free litter or use sand instead.

DO EXTRA CLEANING: Even small amounts of floating dirt & dust can trigger an attack, so it's important to keep your cats area squeaky clean.

FILTER OUT THE PROBLEM: If your home is heated & Cooled with a central system, consider installing an electrostatic filter...They can be expensive, but they do filter out some types of particles.

TRY SUPPLEMENTAL PROTECTION: Some vets believe that giving cats antioxidant vitamins, which apparently help 'neutralize' harmful oxygen molecules in the body, can help relieve a number of health problems, including asthma. Give your cat a childs does of Vitamin C or E once a week. Just crumble it up and put it in her food.

CALM KITTY'S KARMA: Asthma has long been linked to stress in pets as well as people. When asthma is flaring, it might be a good idea to nix activities that upset your feline, like going to the groomer or vacuuming the floor.

WHEN TO SEE THE VET: If your cat has just started coughing or wheezing, and has had asthma before, but the symptoms are getting worse, don't take chances. Call your vet right away...he can recommend what treatment is best for your feline friend.

TOMORROW: BITING.

Friday purrs & meows
Mom is feeling quite a bit better today so she said I could finally meow at everyfur! Guess that means she'll finally be decorating for Christmas this weekend. That means boxes filled with sparkly things & extra temptations for Piggy & Sneakers...MOL! We're not sure how they'll be with the tree yet but if the past reputations of the rest of us are any indication then they'll be in trouble...MOL! It was just last year that mom found me in the middle of it with Trixie on branches below & Monkey above. Mom is hoping all of us 'older' kitties have outgrown the urge to climb the tree & play with the pretty ornaments but we only get the chance once a year. That means highly unlikely we'll be good all of the time mom...MOL! Mom got a lot of on-line shopping for the kids done this morning so when things start arriving we'll also 'help' with the wrapping.
Rain is heading our way in a few minutes so can't be on CC too long since the dog is outside & will need to come in before it starts, but wanted to let everyone know that mom is better & I should be able to blog normally next week.

Gotta run for now so I can see what the kittens are up to...& if they need a good chasing...MOL! Have a pawtastic weekend dear furiends!

Ha! Deck the hall with Barbed Wire?? This sounds like an Angel mallow idea. Or are you the terrestrial version of your big sister?
Anyway, I think it could be a good idea if the wire was shined up to look like tinsel. very purrity.
If we hang it outside with little blinking lights the birdies will come to sit on it... and *whap* fresh warm birdies for lunch.
A Christmas treat for sure.
I love your soft white profile photo... do you shed much? And how about the little Black Bear mojo? Now there must be a shedder. your house must be very furry.

Thank you again, Evie and family
for the wonderfully warm welcome to CC. Because of ME, my pawrents now have an open door policy, and all four of us have the run of the house 24/7.

Seems my meowing loudly, starting between 2 a.m. and 4 a.m. EVERY night, caused them both to lose hours of sleep. So, no more cats in their own bedrooms every night, hehehehe.

Felicity is still acting like royalty on occasion, other times, she "allows" me to lie next to her and Momma on the couch. She has even started allowing me to sleep about 2 feet away from her on HER bed during the day.

Life is good.

Hi Evie!
All's quiet here right now, no neighbors lurking around with guns, or tearing down fences. It's almost boring. *yawn* Not that mom minds the quiet! Or the lack of gunfire....

A day late, but ... Happy December! Although "happy" is a relative term. No, we don't have any relatives here visiting! *whew* It's just that so far this month our HIGH temp has been 28. Our low was this morning, 7 degrees! And just to make it even more interesting, the forecast is calling for freezing rain and/or snow tomorrow and Thursday. Yes, 'THAT' freezing rain, the stuff mom slipped on and nearly busted her keister a couple weeks ago!

On the other paw, we ARE inside where it's warm and dry, and we get plenty of kibble and fresh liquid water, not that frozen solid stuff outside that mom has to keep going out and refreshing during the day! So I guess we're pretty happy. Yeah, now that I think about it, Happy December!

QUEEN KELS KAT REMEDIES
Good evening kitties..today's topic is: FEVER!!!

You always knew your pet was 'hot-stuff', but today he really does seem to be over heating. Worse, he's moping around and doesn't even want to eat. What's turning up the heat??

It could be a virus...take your pets' temperature...the NORMAL body temp for dogs and cats is between 100.5* - 102.5*, if the thermometer registers over over 103* you can bet they are getting sick.

PRESS AWAY THE HEAT: One soothing way to lower your pets temperature is with cool water compresses. Soak a washcloth in cold water and wring it out and gently pat your pets belly. You can also use isopropyl alcohol...alcohol evaporates quickly from the skin.

RUN A COOL BATH: {I say run for the hills and hide} If your cat will hold still for it, putting her in a cool {NOT cold} bath for 10 minutes will help bring down the fever.

GIVE HIM A WRAP AROUND: To lower fever in a cat or a small dog, just place a towel soaked in cool water around him. Most will enjoy the coolness.

KEEP THE WATER BOWL FULL: A pet with a fever runs the risk of dehydration, so it's important to keep his water bowl full of fresh cold water at all times. If he doesn't want to drink, give him an ice cube instead.

ASK ABOUT ASPIRIN: While many vets are cautious when it comes to giving human medication to pets, aspirin can sometimes be used to help bring a fever down. Ask your vet before giving any aspirin to your pet and he will recommend the correct dosage.

DOES THE NOSE KNOW: just as we check a childs temp by feeling his forehead, we check our pets noses when they are feeling ill. While dogs and cats appreciate the attention, the nose is not an accurate gauge of temperature .

WHEN TO SEE THE VET: While most fevers are caused by minor viral infections, they can also be a sign of something more serious, such as hepatitis, pneumonia or Lyme Disease.

TO CHECK PETS TEMP: Lightly coat a rectal thermometer with petroleum jelly, holding the thermometer in one hand, your pets in the other, gently slide the thermometer two-thirds of it's length into the rectum. If the temp is over 103*, call your vet immediately.

TOMORROW: HEARTWORMS!
