Hi Maia!
Oh boy, the dominos are still falling, huh? Wonder if Notre Dams's coach will find a mew home. We haven't seen anything lately, but the last four games the fans got pretty upset with him and there were folks saying he should get canned. But it's hard to get a good coach to come out to our frozen area here and have to do all that is required for the job.

Good luck with your new one and I hope Nebraska has a good year next year. It's a LONG time until next football season.

We have had Mr. Sun visit us lately and Mom even went to work today without her winter coat, just a work jacket. Whoo hoo! Middle brother and his g/f are up visiting. They won't be back for Christmas so the family will have to have an early Christmas tomorrow night.

Have a wonderful evening! Big hugs!

Good afternoon kitties. Today's topic is: BLADDER CONTROL PROBLEMS:!!

Few things are less savory than discovering an unpleasant odor emanating from your potted plants or a puddle in your living room. Oh no, she has done it again. It is normal for puppies and kittens to make mistakes. But when your grown up pet has suddenly stopped making it to litter box or back yard on time, there could be something physically wrong.

HOLD THE NIGHTCAP: To help keep floors dry while you sleep, try putting out only a small amount of water at night. Don't stop the water entirely. For some pets going without water can be dangerous.

PROVIDE EXTRA BATHROOMS: When Fluffy has poor control, the last thing she needs is a litter box that's far away. To make sure she can get relief when she needs it, have an extra litter box on every floor.

KEEP IT TIDY: Even desperate cats can be finicky, and if the litter isn't kept clean, they refuse to use it. Clean out your cats boxes with each bowel movement, or at least once a day.

WHEN TO SEE THE VET: While even the best-behaved pet can have accidents, a sudden change for the worse could mean trouble. Pets that urinate frequently or in all the wrong places could have a bladder infection, diabetes, hormone imbalance or even kidney failure.

Call your vet if any changes in your pets usual habits persist for more then 2 days or if the urine is discolored or if it's difficult for her to go.

TOMORROW: HIVES!!!

that's what janet's going to do,
give another type of sugar cookie this time lemon-lime-orange 3 of nat's favorite flavors in one cookie, then gingerbread cook-ies for mommy's 87th birthday thursday, and molasses for herself as she rarely eats cookies, cakes or pies and still has a big stash of candy from easter/christmas from years past and so far no chocolates this year as she's got more than enough to go through. then a quick bread as a gift for somebody at work which will leave her just meals a few she's picked out to make and try before the holidays and if they are good, well they will get made again. looks like also a possible few sinkers towards the end of this and into next week the last being christmas eve ice to rain so might be kind of messy trying to travel after she's in from work as she had 6-10 on christmas eve which is good as that'll allow her to do the veggies/potato ahead of time and cranberry sauce which she tossed the one she had for thanksgiving seeing it was to bitter! sandy,ab,haley,angels

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.

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 Maia!
Oh great idea, a Sugar Bowl pawty! Let's do it; I'll be there with some snacks and drinks. Shall we go to Squeevie's house or maybe to our beach huts at Pinto Island.

I did see that the Wisconsin coach is going to Oregon State but didn't realize that your new coach is the one from Oregon State. Veddy interesting! I think your team is getting an upgrade but not sure about the Wisconsin coach; guess maybe he just wanted to get back out to the coast for family reasons, doesn't seem like it was a career move, he had better resources at Wisconsin, I would think. Who knows what motivates these coaches. I wonder if the coach spinning wheel is over or if there are more that will leave and get mew jobs. We will see.

Have a super evening! Big hugs!

Good afternoon Kitties. I hope you all had a peaceful night! Today's topic is: VOMITING!

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!

Dearest Furrends maia & lia
Thanks so much for the visit, the prayers and the concern for mom's aneurysm. It's at 4.8 right now and they don't do anything for women until it reaches 5.2 and as fast as it has been growing, that shouldn's be much longer!!

My goodness, how is it possible that furless is getting more adorable every day. Mom said that she could just pick her up and squeeze her (gently).

So glad you are back on CC. You've been missed. Talk to
you soon.

HI Maia!
We will be rooting for Steve's team, too, so glad a midwestern team made the final four. Mom was surprised, she thought for sure they were going to go with TCU and she did a happy dance when they said Ohio State. We will have to find some red spirit beads cause ours are blue and gold and green here.

I wondered where you went the other night at the rink but figured moms do get called away. Hope you just pounce in anytime that mom finds a spare few minutes. OH YIKES, furless has a little beastie? Ewwww!! And it comes over to your house? I am so sorry for you! I don't like those smelly things, although our little one doesn't bother me much. OH Yes, mom says furless must be taught to be gentle and that is a shame if her parents let her get away with kicking a puppy. We think our little doggie was abused by children and she is terrified of them now. It's very sad but some parents don't have as much concern for pets as our pawrents do.

Hope all is well with you. Have a super evening! Big hugs!

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 stops 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 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!! 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!!!

Thank You
For your condolences. We are sorry that we took so long but Mom is still very sad, she misses me so much. We had been together for over 19 years and we were so bonded with no other kitties interfering for attention. I sent Mom another kitty, to honor me by helping a homeless kitty,she will get his page up soon. He will never replace me but Mom has stopped crying so much. Mom hopes to get me back in my engraved box next week from the Pet Memorial Park, and she thinks she will feel better after I am back home. She also ordered an engraved metal badge in my memory for the cat statue in the courtyard of the San Diego Humane Society, and she can't wait to visit there to see it.

Thanks again for your kind words.

Hi Maia!
Oh gosh, you sure did send me a blog and I can't believe I don't see I answered. So sorry! I surely would NOT ignore my dear furriend.

Good for you, not having to deal with those smelly old beasties. We have a big one and a little one here. The little one just annoys me but the big one scares me. Mom says she's just a goofy puppy wanting to play. But she plays too rough for kitties. Mom is more of a kitty purrson, too; the rest of the family are dog purrsons. Mom's very attached to the big beastie, and calls her "the world's biggest cat" cause she acts more like a cat than any dog mom has ever seen. MOL

I hope you can make it to the rink, but I sure do understand that this time of year is busy for our bloggers, so I'll just be delighted when and if you can make it, and won't expect it.

Wow, Squeevie's Buckeyes sure had a great game against those Badgers. We weren't sure how they would do with the second back up QB. Mom was hoping that FSU would go down to GA tech so Ohio State could get into the playoffs.

Have a peaceful nighty night. Big hugs!

Good evening kitties. Today is moms birthday so she got a cake from her co-workers. Happy birthday to my mom.

Today's Topic: BITES!!!!

They don't call it a dog-eat-dog world for nothing. Big dogs bite little dogs and vice versa. Dogs chase cats, and cats fight back. Even squirrels, skunks and other critters will occasionally throw their hats into the ring. Any bite is potentially dangerous, so if your pet gets bitten, see your Vet ASAP!!!!

START WITH A MUZZLE: It's natural for an animal in pain to lash out. To protect yourself, wrap your pets mouth before treating him. If you have no muzzle you can improvise by wrapping gauze, panty hose or even a length of twine or rope several times around your pets mouth. Then pull the ends together and tie behind their ears.

WRAP HER UP: If FLUFFY OR FIDO are too small for a muzzle, protect yourself by wrapping her head with a towel before starting treatment.

GET IT CLEAN: Trim the hair around the wound to make it easier to clean. Flush for at least 5 minutes with warm water. If the bite is ore than 24 hours old, bacteria may have already taken hold. Scrub the wound carefully with an antibacterial soap, then flush it with warm water.

ADD EXTRA PROTECTION: After washing & drying the bite, apply an OTC triple antibiotic ointment such as Neosporin. Then bandage the area with gauze to keep it clean...to keep gauze in place you can use clear first-aid tape.

KEEP IT LOOSE:When applying and taping a bandage to a wound, leave enough room to get your finger underneath. Anything tighter can interfere with your pets circulation.

ENCOURAGE HER INPUT: Once the bandage is removed, it's natural for a pet to lick their wounds. In most cases this isn't a problem. In fact, licking helps speed the healing process.

KEEP UP WITH SHOTS: Rabies is a viral disease that without treatment is almost always fatal--to both pets and people. Keep your pets vaccinations up to date.

WHEN TO SEE THE VET: Look for these danger signs.
If touching the area around the wound causes Fido or Fluffy to jerk away, the wound could be infected. Severe blood loss. Bites to the abdomen or to the throat, injuries in these areas can cause damage to the windpipe or internal bleeding. If a wild animal bites your pet, it could be rabid so get your pet to the vet right away.

Tomorrow: SHEDDING.

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.

Good afternoon kitties, today's topic is all about the JEALOUSY we all feel in multi-pet households!

Life with your pet used to be rosy. But these days the emotional hue is more jealousy. either a new human mate, a new baby or even another pet has entered your life. While pets don't jealousy the same as people do, that's not to say your little darlings don't feel a tad jealous.

DON'T DEMOTE HIM: No one enjoys being the bottom dog{or cat}, so try to make your pet feel special and loved before the source of the stress came into your life.

FEED HER FIRST: If a new pet is causing your pet to see 'green', be sure to give the 'original' pet top priority. No matter how irresistible a new pet may be, alwys feed your 1st pet first. Do the same when giving attention.

TREAD GENTLY: You might think that the new person in your life is making your furry friend jealous, but in fact he could be feeling fear. Have your new friend speak gently to your pet. With cats, be patient and him make the 1st move. The person should never approach the cat 1st and insist on being friends, that will never work.

FOR CATS ONLY!!!
PUT HER ON A PEDESTAL: It's important to realize cats feel more secure when they have a high vantage point. So make sure your cat has a place to climb to where she can sit and watch what is going on. If you can't add shelving to your walls buy cat trees which are readily available at most retailers and pet stores, or if you really feel creative, make your own, but be sure to carpet it and use some sisal rope as well.

MAKE INTRODUCTIONS SLOWLY: If you just got a new pet, don't don't give him the run of the house immediately. This will make your first cat go nuts. Keep the cats in separate areas for a day or two. Then trade off their areas so they get used to each other's scent. If the cats seem alright after 2 days, let them 'meet' face to face. However if they start growling and hissing, keep them separated for another few days..keep this up til the hissing stops...soon they will learn to live together in harmony.

FIGHTS: If 2 cats go at it in a fight, NEVER try to put your hand in the middle to break it up, you may be bitten or scratched. One sure way to get them separated is to keep a squirt bottle on hand, most cats hate to be squirted and will separate and run.

TOMORROW: ASTHMA

Good morning kitties!!! Today's Topic is: HEARTWORMS!!!

It's bad enough when you get bitten by a hungry mosquito--and spend the rest of the day scratching.

For dogs and cats, however, mosquitoes are more then just an itchy annoyance.In certain parts of the Country like the Gulf Coast & Atlantic Coast, they carry heartworms. Most heartworms occur in dogs, however, cats can be infected as well.

STOP THEM AT THE GATE: Vets recommend that ALL dogs and some cats be given preventive medicine. This way, even if your pet is bitten by a mosquito, the medication is his bloodstream will destroy the infection...see your vet for the proper medication and dosage!

DON'T BE OVER CONFIDENT: Even if your pet never ventures outdoors, it's always possible that a mosquito may be in the house. Both indoor and outdoor pets should see a VET regularly for preventive medication.

DON'T NEGLECT THE TEST: It may be dangerous to give heartworm preventive medicine to a pet already infected, which is why most Vets perform a blood test before prescribing medication.

INVEST IN SNUG SCREENS: While you can't entirely exclude mosquitoes from your life{or your house}, putting up tight fitting screens will help keep the numbers low.

INVITE FRIENDS TO DINNER: Putting a Purple Martin birdhouse in your yard will attract these voracious birds, which can eat thousands of insects a day...It is also a good idea to eliminate ponds or pools of standing water where mosquitoes love to breed.

FOR CATS ONLY: Heartworms occur less often in cats, which is why cats aren't given the preventive medicine. Keep kitty indoors as much as possible, especially at night when mosquitoes are more prevalent.

WHEN TO SEE THE VET: Once your pet gets heartworm, its a difficult condition to treat. The drugs used to eradicate the worms contain arsenic, which can be more dangerous then the disease. It is CRITICAL to see your pets vet at the first sign of symptoms, which include coughing, rapid breathing and fatique.

TOMORROW: JEALOUSY

the flowers
are from a bunch janet took with the last of the fall foliage the early part to the middle of last month. the flowers are what she's calling defiant flowers as they were still going strong after 2 frosts and well the next day they were all dead due to a strong freeze/frost both in the same run! she's done some online shopping, but not to much has gotten a few better deals locally as well as earlier this year when they were marked down from last winter. if she's got the $$ she'll start after christmas for next year as well as easter baskets which she does each year and will be less this year as nobody really eats all that candy and she's got it in the freezer and it's starting to back up which means she'll con-centrate on things like good for you snacks, popcorn for her as well as cashews for mommy, seeds and things for her garden gift cards and the like. sandy,ab,haley,angels

Hi Maia!
What a bummer your folks couldn't go visit Gpa but better safe than sorry. T'Giving is only one day out of the year and there will be more days that the weather will be better. It was super that your mom got you to the rink; I was doin' happy dances seeing you there. We all have missed you bunches.

Naw, biggest brother is a vegetarian. MOL no way would he stick his fingers in the turkey to give kitty a piece. Besides, he has never forgiven me for replacing our Angel Zak. Ah well, mom and dad love me. At least brother didn't bring his doggie; mom was sad about that, but brother was visiting a customer in Chicago before he came down and spent a couple of days here. His roommates puppy-sat for her. Mom loves her grand-puppy and would have loved to see her.

Have a wonderful evening! Big hugs!!

Good afternoon Kitties! Today's topic is: DEHYDRATION!!!

You wouldn't know it to look at her, but your pet is a veritable ocean of water. She needs all that fluid to keep her tissues moist and to transport ions, proteins and essential nutirents throughout her body.

Symptoms of dehydration include: dry mouth, sunken eyes, loss of elasticity in the skin and extreme exhaustion.

MOISTEN HER MUZZLE: While dogs and cats do not sweat much--they have only a few sweat glands between their toes--they can lose a lot of fluid through panting. To make sure your pet always has enough to drink, it's a good idea to keep 2 water bowls filled all the time, that way she will always have plenty to drink.

DON'T LET HIM GUZZLE: If your pet has gone a long time without water, letting him gulp down the entire bowl of water at once may result in vomiting.

ELECTROLYTE UP HER LIFE: Dehydration can cause your pet to lose electrolytes, minerals like potassium and sodium that transmit electrical impulses throughout the body. Try giving your pet Pedialyte, you can find it in most stores.

POUR A SPORTS DRINK: If your hot dog or cat seems reluctant to drink, try tempting him with an electrolyte-containing sports drink such as Gatorade. Some pets have a thing for sweet, fruity flavors.

LET HER LICK ICE: Pets that have gone a long time without water may have trouble keeping fluids down. A helpful alternative is to give her and ice cube.

GET WATER TO GO: To prevent dehydration from occurring, it's important to provide your pet with water even when you're away from the house. When and if you travel with your pets try keeping a no-spill water container in the car. Pet stores sell a variety of no-spill containers.

WHEN TO SEE THE VET: To test for dehydration, pull up the skin on your pets back, if it pulls up loose and lax, he could be dangerously low on fluids and should be seen by his VET right away!

Tomorrow: FEVER!

Hey girls, long time no see.
So nice of you to come by and celebrate my 8th birthday. We sure had a good time, lots of gifts, food and NIP. I must admit that I was a tiny bit sad because Zachary Pierre, my brother wasn't on CC since they said it was closing last year. You know how we love to bicker back and forth about which one was born first.. MOL. Mom took everyone's profile down last Jan, when CC was closing and we went to SMC. Now it is closed, but the kitties there missed the Hairballz so much, we set up a special group page on FB. If you wanna join us here is the link

Thanks Maia & Lia
Thank you for helping me celebrate my Adopty Day today. Adoptiversaries are such special days in our lives, as that is the day we found our wonderful furever homes and loving families. What a glorious occasion to celebrate!

Mommy says this quote by Alan Beck describes me purrrfectly: “Little girls are the nicest things that happen to people. They are born with a little bit of angelshine around them, and though it wears thin sometimes, there is always enough left to lasso your heart.”

Today is a double celebration! I won ★Cat Rescue of the Month★ for the ❸rd time. Mommy & I are happily surprised with this unexpected honor.

Thanks for sharing my special day with me. Thirteen years ago, I found my happily ever after! And now I am living La Bella Vida (a beautiful life).

Good evening kitties: Today's topic is "The Treed Kitty"..never been up a tree, pursonnaly, but Jesse has!

Rather he's chasing birds, escaping from dogs, or simply catching a high-altitude snooze, one of the cats favorite activities is climbing trees.

DON'T RALLY 'ROUND THE TREE: Just because your cat is out on a limb doesn't mean he needs your help. In fact, he'd probably prefer it if you'd go away and leave him alone.

GIVE HER TIME: While it's not impossible for a cat to be truly stuck in a tree, chances are he just hasn't gotten around to coming down yet. Most cats are fully capable of coming down by themselves....if kitty doesn't come down by dark, you may need to go get her as she may be attacked wild animals like a raccoon.

TEMPT HIS TASTE BUDS: Even cats in trees get hungry, and putting some of his favorite food where he can see and smell it may get him down.

MOUNT A RESCUE MISSION: If your cat is tyoo scared to come down on his own, the easiest thing to do is climb the tree and get him. If the tree is not easy to climb, get a ladder.

DON PROTECTION: A treed cat is a scared cat, and many people have been bitten and scratched trying to rescue a scared cat. Wear heavy gloves and a jacket to protect your hands and arms.

GO FOR THE NECK: When grabbing a scared cat, it's best to catch the skin on the back of her neck, This is the same place mom-kitty uses when she carries kittens...most cats will go limp once grabbed by the scruff of the neck.

MAKE IT COUNT: When grabbing a treed cat, make sure you don't miss. If you miss and don't get a good grasp, chances are he will climb higher.

CALL THE PROS: If kitty has been in the tree fort more then 24 hours and still doesn't come down and your efforts failed, it's time to call the pros....call your local Humane Society or Animal Rescue.

BUILD A STAIRCASE: If your cat frequently get 'stuck' in the same tree, you can make life easier for both of you by nailing up a few boards, this will give your climbing feline something to grab when climbing or descending.

KEEP HIM AWAY: If kitty only seems to have trouble getting down from one tree, you can try to barricade the tree, try surrounding the tree with wire mesh, just make sure it's high enough so kitty can't jump over it.

TOMORROW: DEHYDRATION

Good evening Kitties!! Today's topic is: RINGWORM!!

Just because your pet is getting bald, doesn't mean he is getting older. His coat is looking a lot like an 18-hole golf course, this is caused by a fungal infection called Ringworm!

TAKE A LITTLE OFF THE TOP: Trimming her fur around the bald spots will help prevent the fungus from spreading and also make the area easier to treat.

HAUL AWAY THE HAIR: Since Ringworm thrives on hair both on and off the pet, be sure to clean up well after giving your pet a haircut.

WASH IT WELL: To keep the "RINGS" clean and infection-free, wash them daily with an OTC antiseptic soap containing povidone iodine. This will help prevent minor fungal problems from turning into a more serious infection.

SPREAD ON PROTECTION: There re a number of OTC anti-fungal creams, liquids and ointments that are very good at controlling ringworm. For treatment to be effective, rub a small amount of the medication into the skin twice a day. Ask your vet which medication will work best for your pet.

PRACTICE PREVENTION: To eliminate ringworm and prevent it from spreading, wash your pets with anti-fungal shampoo. This not only kills any fungus that's already present, it will also prevent further infection. Get pet wet with warm water, pour on shampoo, work up a lather and leave on 15 minutes to give it time to work, then rinse pet well with warm water.

KEEP HER BRUSHED: To prevent ringworm from spreading, regular grooming is very important.Brushing your pet at least once a day will help remove fungal spores before they cause infection.

PROTECT HIS PALS: Since ringworm is readily spread from pet to pet, it's a good idea to keep the infected pet away from his buddies until the "RINGS" clear up.

VACUUM OFTEN: Since ringworm survives even on hair that's not on your pet, vacuuming your home often will reduce the risk of re-infection.

WHEN TO SEE THE VET: Many pets with ringworm experience nothing worse than a bald spot or 2, sometimes the infection can spread over the entire body causing large, red weepy sores..if this happens..SEE YOUR VET RIGHT AWAY. he will recommend a course of treatment for your pet.

Good afternoon Kitties. I trust you all had a pawsome Thanksgiving! Today's topic is: MANGE!!

It sounds like a disease associated with junkyard dogs, but even pampered pets can get mange, and it doesn't make for a pretty pet. Mange causes small red hairless areas on pets body that causes oozing!! Mange occurs when mite burrow under the skin, so here are a few tips to help your pet!

DOUSE IT WITH A DIP: Pets with scabies often get intensely itchy. It's like having mosquito bites on top of mosquito bites. Soaking your pet in a lime/sulfer medication, such as Lymdyp, diluted with water will kill the mites and help relieve itching. This dip is available at: Kennel Vet, PO Box 835, Belmore, NY 11710. Dip your pet for 10-15 minutes..do not rinse and do not towel dry. The dip must stay on your pets fur in order to work.

DON'T NEGLECT OTHER PETS: If you have more then one pet with scabies, chances are good your other pets may get it, too. You have to assume they've been exposed so you should treat them.

DO THE LAUNDRY: While mites spend their entire lives on the host animal, some might slip off and return to cause trouble another day. Be sure to wash your pets bedding or any area in which she sleeps.

FIGHT IT WITH FAR: Fatty acid supplements are fairly popular to use on skin disorders. Supplements are available at Pet stores nationwide.

KEEP HIM CLEAN: Regular grooming will help remove scaly skin and scabs caused by mange. Done regularly, it can also keep your pet mange-free.

FEED HER WELL: Since mange often affects pets that are poorly nourished, giving your pet a quality food can help provide protection, a better diet mean a healthier pet.

FORGO MOTOR OIL: Pouring motor oil on your pet is a passed-down home remedy for mange and it does NOT work. In fact, since pets will lick the oil, it can be harmful. So leve the motor oil in garage.

WHEN TO SEE HER VET: If your pet sudden;y starts going bald because of mange, it means he has a serious problem. When you notice those red, balding area's on your pet, take him to the vet for treatment.

Keep them suggestions coming in, tomorrow: RINGWORM!!!

Good evening kitties. Today's topic: FIGHTING. Suggested by my sister, KALI!

Every night your cat goes out looking for trouble--and comes back looking he tangled with a blender. While fighting is scary to watch and dangerous for the combatants, it's extremely common!

DON'T GET IN THE MIDDLE: Dogs and cats in the heat of battle aren't discriminating about what or who they bite. Many owners have been mauled while trying to break up a fight, so keep your hands clear. If you feel you must break up a fight, throw a blanket over them, this will protect your hands.

GO DEEP & LOUD: When you see a fight brewing, interrupt the aggression with the loudest, deepest "NO" you can muster. Pets associate a low-pitched voice with a threatening growl and will take it more seriously.

GIVE THEM A BLAST: If the squabble occurs in the vicinity of a garden hose, turn it on your fighting pets...this will "cool" them off.

SIT OUT MINOR BRAWLS: When dogs or cats meet, you can expect a certain amount of posturing, hissing, growling, or tussling. In most cases it is their way of getting acquainted. Even if they start squabbling, chances are the ruckus will calm down in a minute or 2.

FOR CATS ONLY!!

GIVE THEM SEPARATE QUARTERS: Bringing a new cat into the family can raise tension for both the newcomer and the the resident cat. To keep fights to a minimum, provide separate litter boxes, and feed them in separate rooms til they get used to each other.

PROVIDE AN EASY EXIT: When bringing 2 cats together for the 1st time, make sure there is an escape route. This will help prevent them from feeling trapped.

GET THEM IN TWOS: If you want to have 2 or more cats, get them at the same time as kittens. Cats that grow up together are less likely to fight then those they meet later in life.

KEEP THEM INDOORS: If you really love your cat[s] keep her indoors...if you must put them outdoors, build an outdoor enclosure or kitty playground!

TOMORROW: DEPRESSION!

Hi Maia!
Last week sure was a super sad one, wasn't it? Mom is not quite herself. Hope she gets with the program soon. I was so bummed CC was down most of yesterday; we had to have hockey on the Mewsroom and as you can imagine, there was plenty of catfusion! A couple cats never could get in even though mom tried to help. Hope it stays up Wednesday, but not sure if mom will be bringing me. Biggest brother is coming up for Thanksgiving. Just him and not the g/f. Mom's not sure what to think about that. Purrhaps they are not going serious? That's ok I guess, brother is still young, he should make sure he finds a young lady that can put up with him long term.

Middle brother was here last week, helping dad with the bathroom remodeling. It is about 65 or 70% done I would say. It has taken a long, long time. Dad is still *mostly* cheerful about it. Mom will try to be cheerful cause it will be nice to have a handicap accessible shower for when the folks are in their old age.

Have a great evening! Big hugs!

Good afternoon kitties!!! Today's topic is all about those nasty UTI's. Suggested by HT Jesse cause he gets them!!!

She used to go all day without a break, but lately your pent-up pet can hardly wait to go outside. And no sooner does she got out and she wants back in, then has to go out again. UTI's aren't just the 'bane' of bathroom hopping humans, kitties and dogs can get them, too. UTI's make it difficult to urinate. What's more, the inside of the urinary tract can get painfully inflamed.

POUR SOME JUICE: It's a home remedy for people that also works for pets. Cranberry juice, orange juice and other citrus juices boost the acidity of urine, reducing the number of bacteria and helping relieve discomfort. The problem with juices is getting your pet to actually drink it. Try mixing an ounce in with her breakfast food. You can TRY to put out a bowl and see what happens.

PROVIDE FREQUENT POTTY BREAKS: When urine remains in the bladder for a long time, any bacteria that happen to be floating around have more time to multiply, causing infection levels to rise. A pet that only urinates 2 times a day will more likely develop an infection more then one that goes 10 times a day.

ASK FOR ASSISTANCE: DOGS ONLY: Your dog may have great control, but if the only time she gets to go outside is before work and after work, bacteria have plenty of time to do their dirty work. If you can't get home during the day perhaps you can ask a neighbor to let her out for you.

GET THOSE PAWS MOVING: Most dogs and cats can't go around the block without making a deposit. Taking at least two 20 minute walks a day will increase urination and reduce the risk of infection.

WHEN TO SEE HER VET: While most UTI's will clear up on their own even without treatment, occasionally bacteria will swim upstream, causing a dangerous kidney infection.
Symptoms of Kidney infection include frequent or difficult urination and possible blood in the urine. Some pets get feverish and lethargic.
Don't take chances if you notice any changes in your pets normal urinary habits. She may need oral antibiotics to prevent a small infection form turning into a major problem.

Follow the Vets advice and always follow label instructions on any medication..The best time to give antibiotics is right after urination.

Keep them suggestions coming in!! Tomorrow: EAR MITES

Good afternoon kitties!!! Today's topic is "EYES" have it, part 2: VISION PROBLEMS!!!

Your pet has always been a sure-footed beast, but lately she's been bumping into things and looking lost. For some reason your pet's sharp vision has faded.

DON'T PLAY MUSICAL CHAIRS: Moving furniture can confuse dim-sighted animals and even cause injuries. if your cat is playing and barrels into a table leg for example, put your furniture back where it was.

SHOW HIM AROUND: If you do move your furniture around, lead him around on a leash for a day or two to help him find his way. It is also a good idea to confine him to one room until he knows it well. Once he is familiar with the layout, switch him to a different room, most pets love to be around people, so be sure you stay in the room an hour for a few times daily so your pet doesn't feel alone.

BE PREDICTABLE: Stability is important for poorly sighted animals. Leaving their food and water in the same place will help give her a sense of order and security. The same goes for her litterbox, bed and toy box. The less you change things the better.

GIVE HER A LEASH ON LIFE: If your pet has even the slightest trouble seeing, do not allow her to be outside alone without a leash, she will be scared and frightened and may run away or get hit by a car.

IF YOU HAVE A POOL: Pools can be dangerous for pets that can't see where they are going. I have seen blind people fall into pools, so guard your pet by putting a fence around the pool or keep her on a leash.

TRY A NEW HAIRDO: If your pet has vision problems and her hair is in her eyes, trim them away. Too much hair can hinder their vision.

WHEN TO VISIT THE VET: Animals have the uncanny ability to adapt to a new world, they have fine-tuned senses, if their sight goes, their sense of hearing magnifies.

If your pet suddenly doesn't sleep on your bed, or is bumping into furniture, or slow to move when called, however, her vision may be impaired. Call your vet to make an appt. and he will run vision tests to see how advanced the vision problem is and recommend treatment.

KEEP them suggestions coming in!!! TOMORROW: UTI's!
