where did you go this time?
last time it was us who disappeared and now it's you guys as you were wondering what happened to us. well now it's you, oh well, must be busy or sick! we had another snowstorm as we got 6" last saturday which between that and a sinus infection kept janet home from work and a driving ban on in this state yester-day kept her home with a foot of fluffy snow which all was fin-ally finished today with nat doing the gutters and raking the snow off the roof. janet shoveled paths further out in little orchard and trenches between the house and piles of snow from the roof outback and out front. more snow 1-3" coming in friday for the commute :( which janet's not happy about, but is working and then another bigger one for monday either 5-8" fluffy or wet snow, or a sinker to all rain or all rain just depends on the path it takes. hope all's okay there. janet's sinus infection is still with her and otc meds are working but days headaches just pound and they don't work at all! sandy,ab,haley,angels

Hi Maia & Lia
I am having a good day, too. I got mom cuddles and I got petted, and then I crawled up on the couch and sat with her while she was doing things on her tablet.

I have to often growl at Kelsee or someone else to get out of "MY SPOT"...it seems like we all want to be in the same spot most of the time.

I enjoy sleeping 'under' the loveseat cover mom has on it. It is a kitty quilt just small enough to fit on the seat and over the back, and I crawl under it to sleep.

Mom is amazed that us kitties can sleep under blankets and quilts and not suffocate...when mom is cold and pulls the covers up over head, she can't breathe and had to pull them off again!

Today is a sunny day and it is 30* outside...that is my story and I am sticking to it. Mom's tablet says 28* and the thermometer in the kitchen says 35*, so I am compromising here.

Our mom isn't feeling good today. She aches all over and she has a headache..she is going to rest after she is done here, cause KK is hosting at MHL tonight and mom can't have a headache then.

**Have a pleasant afternoon**

let's just say
that janet's sick with the sinus flu now having had a headache now for 5 days and not cracking but one of them, she had the throat yesterday and has a bit this morning as the weather is getting set to "dump" on us on saturday afternoon/night heavy wet crap which we know the snow blower won't run in and means shoveling for janet and nat that night more than likely and another storm due in sunday with the siberian cold as mon/tues morning lows will be around 0 and minus numbers! back to the crap, but the sooner we get past all of this stuff the better! :) mommy is sick with nat's cold now too and he's feeling better now but still has his cold. sandy,ab,haley,angels

Hi Maia & Lia
Well, today we have a mild day with no wind and it is not cold either. We are almost 30* and it is supposed to be warm all weekend and then Monday go back to the 20's.

Mom cleaned house today and then did dishes and took out trash and now she is doing laundry. I can't wait for her to bring up the clothes from the dryer so I can hop in and lay on them, but of course mom usually folds them right away so they will not wrinkle.

We all got our treats and catnip and I was still eating mine and Jesse was done with his, so he thought he was gonna get mine, too...no way, daddy-o..I growled at him and he walked away. Just cause he finished all his doesn't mean he's gonna get any of mine.

Well, I need to get my beauty nap in before hockey tonight. I have a game and I need my rest! You can't win if you don't get plenty of rest.

Enjoy your afternoon!

Hey Maia!
I'm having a super time at the football pawty! It's quite an exciting game. ......it's past mom's bedtime but she wants to see the end of the game. Wonder how Steve's Gma is going to manage; she has to get up in a couple of hours to go to work. Don't know if my mom could do that.

Yeah we have really been having the heavy duty snow. We didn't have much in December but January has whalloped us. Big time. Mom and Dad finally are going to bite the bullet and buy somr serious snow tires that you swap out each spring and fall. Mom always had all season radials before.

That is so cool that furless can manipulate the Ipad. How fun to watch her develop her skills!

Have a great night! Go Buckeyes! Big10 hugs! !

Hi Maia & Lia
Just now mom got that annoying ad page 4 times in a row while we were trying to leave a message for A Priscilla and our post posted 4 times, mom tried to delete 3 and all of them went, so she just left all 4. Dang CC anyway!

Mom just downloaded Ad Blocker Plus, so now we have no ads on the desktop..she will download it on her laptop next. No more annoying ads to make CC slower.

It wasn't too cold today. We woke up to 2-3" of fresh snow on the ground, so mom went out and shoveled it after the Comcast guy left. We had no Internet yesterday..mom came home from work and it was out, so she tried to rest her modem, but she still got nothing....the guy reset mom's modem and router and tightened up the line outside. I guess the wind made it loose or something...we are back now!

It is supposed to get cold again and we are gonna be back in the deep-freeze for a few days. Then by the weekend it will warm back up to normal.

Have a pawsome day!

Hi Maia & Lia
Well, it isn't quite as cold as it was the past 2 days. Today we actually got to 15* and the sun came out and the wind stopped. We have been having snow flurries off and on all day long. we got about 1-2" of it though overnight.


I am being a P.I.T.A. according to mom. I keep growling at Winston, but he will not move, he just stands there and stares at me, giving me his "LOOK". Well, I am not intimidated by his "LOOK".

Mom got me some cat food with my name on it. Can you believe that? it is in a can like Fancy Feast, but it is called "Sheba"...it was good, so mom said she will buy me more of it for my birthday in March.

I have not even seen any outside wildlife for the past 3-4 days. Not a bird, squirrel or anything. We did see 2 dogs running around in the cold...not sure if they were strays or just got out of a yard.

Mom has not had any problems with CC now that our avatars and homes and pics are back. A lot of kitties still get that 'meow' page, but so far we haven't seen that in a long time....it has been super slow at times though!

Have a nice evening!
Purrs & warm hugs!

you guys will stop in to say happy birthday to janet this week-end? she says it's more than likely selective voting will only be on sunday as she's working she thinks her normal thurs-tues again like she used to, but again doesn't know depends on what her boss gave her for hours which is a guaranteed now 20+4 hours a week. looks more like another possible sinker next week and janet's hoping not as we don't need more ice on top of the crap we already have on the ground! sandy,ab,haley,angels

Hi Maia!
Oh yeah, it would be super to be in that 85 degree weather hanging out by the pool; but I'm also happy to be home. Don't want to miss the big game and pawty on the Pinto between Steve's Buckeyes and A Gracie's Ducks. Be sure to come hang out with us.

Wow, furless is going to be way ahead of the pawrents and grandpawrents soon. It's so different with the ones who grow up never knowing life without clever computers you hold in your hands. What an amazing world and how fun for Gma and her to do together.

Have a super evening! Big hugs!

Hi Maia & Lia
Boy oh boy...we are currently in the 'DEEP-FREEZE' as we like to call it around these parts. Our high{if you call this a HIGH} today was only 11* and right now it is at 8* and dropping to about 6* tonight....this deep freeze is supposed to last about 3-4 days and then get back to the 30's.

That sister of mine is really trying our patience. She sits and growls at all of us and pawsmacks us...Jesse & Kali are intimidated and they run away...Winston gives her "THE LOOK" and she backs away, me..I just totally ignore her and she will eventually get the point and leave.

Mom went to Walmart and she came home with some cat food for us and also a new jar of catnip..good stuff. It is Organic...we like it best. Mom got some other kind and we don't care for it as much as the organic stuff.

HI Maia and family!
Happy New Year to you! Hope it was a good one for you! The pawrents had the neighbors over and had a nice dinner. Dad cooked. Mom had to work Furriday so didn't help much.

Tee hee ya like my pic? The trip to Sydney for New Year's was my Christmas present to Jakar and boy was it fun! We had a lovely time. It's summer there so we were hanging out by the hotel pool a lot. I was going to change out the pic but CC has been a little quirky lately and I didn't want to have no profile picture; that's what happened on Halloween to me.

That's pawsome that furless is learning on mom's Ipad; what a great learning tool, playing games on the Ipad. Mom remembers back in the day of having computer games when her kids were little, things were so different then. The games are so fantastic now for the little ones. The Ipad opens up a colorful world for her. Super!

Have a wonderful day! Big hugs!

Hi Maia & Lia
Wow..I sure missed my friends during Kelsee's 2 month catpaign/Reign. Not fair!

Today it is not as cold as it has been. It's pretty warm out there. No wind and no snow either! It is supposed to stay in the 30's for the weekend then get cold again next week.

We all had a nice Holiday -- did you?? Mom got us all some toys, and catfood and treats. I sure liked my special can of "Sheba". Named after me, so you know it had to be good!

I am turning into a lapcat. I love sitting on mom's lap when she watches TV..makes the other kitties jealous cause they can't get up there...if they try I growl at them and they walk away.

I am getting along better with Kelsee though. I lay next to her on the couch or by the heater. She just lays there and looks at me and goes back to sleep!

It sure will be nice having my friends back!

Hi Princesses Maia and Lia
Today, I had a big day. I am a polydactyl cat and I have 'thumbs' on my back legs. One of them had an ingrown claw. Today, I had to go to the vet and they trimmed my nails and got the ingrown part of that back claw out. It was really scary and I don't like going to the vet but my foot feels better now and is wrapped in a bandage. They did a good job and I'm glad it's over with. Hope you all have a happy new year!

Good afternoon kitties!! Today's topic: INSECT BITES & STINGS!!

To mosquitoes your pets are a four-legged free lunch. Bees, hornets and wasps, however may be too irritated to lunch...they will just sting and fly off. Here are some tips to help relieve stings!

GET THE POINT: If your pet has been targeted by a bee, somewhere in his coat is a stinger. To get it out, carefully part his hair to get a good view, then remove it with a pair of tweezers...if it not embedded to far in , trying scraping it out with your fingernail or a credit card. That way you are less likely to squeeze additional venom into the wound.

SOOTHE IT WITH SODA: Applying a paste of baking soda and water to the sting several times daily can help ease discomfort. A small dab of calamine lotion will also do the trick.

TRY M.O.M.: This OTC medication contains magnesium hydroxide, which will help reduce the itch and irritation. You can coat the sting several times a day with it. {DO NOT GIVE ORALLY}

GET HELP FROM YOUR KITCHEN: Meat tenderizers contain enzymes that help break down the poison in insect stings, reducing the itching. Make a paste by adding water to the tenderizer, then apply it directly to the sting...repeat often. {mom said this works for humans, too}

DAB ON SOME AMMONIA: Ammonia helps cut the pain of bug bites and stings...you can dab it on the sting with cotton several times a day.

HELP FROM A PLANT: Applying a thin layer of gel from an aloe vera plant will help ease discomfort and possibly speed healing. Aloe is very good for skin irritations...if you do not have an aloe vera plant, you can purchase the gel in any store.

TRY ANOTHER OTC: For areas that are sore and irritated, try applying a thin coat of hydrocortisone cream with 0.5 % hydrocortisone.

CHILL IT DOWN: Applying a cold compress to stings helps take the swelling down, dull the pain. Wrap a handful of ice cubes in a washcloth and hold it to the area for at least 5 minutes or longer.

REPEL THE PROBLEM: Dousing your pet with Avon Skin-so-soft will not only make her smell good, it also repels fleas, flies, mosquitoes and other stinging bugs. Put it in a spray bottle and spritz your pet every week or so.

Tomorrow: TICKS!!!

Good evening kitties! Today's topic: LICE!

Lately it seems as though your pet's fave trick is trying to scratch herself in 3 places at once. When you take a look under her fur, what you see are 'nits'--tiny white egg casings attached to her hair shafts. This means your pet has lice.

WASH THEM AWAY: Pet stores sell a variety of shampoos containing pyrethrins..chemicals that kill lice and fleas. Look for a shampoo containing a 0.05% solution. For more serious infestations try the 0.15% solution. Wash your pet with the medicated shampoo once a week for 3 weeks..leaving the shampoo on the coat 3-5 minutes before rinsing.

PROTECT THEIR EYES: Any medicated shampoo can sting, so try not to get the lather in your pets eyes when you give her a bath. You may try smearing Vaseline on the eyelids to keep shampoo out...after your finished, wash off the Vaseline.

SEE TO HIS PALS: Since lice can travel from pet to pet, it doesn't help to treat one and ignore the others...if you have more then 1 pet in your family, be sure to treat them all, even if they do not yet have lice.

DON'T CROSS: If your cat has lice, you do not need to treat your dog, and vice versa. Lice are "Host-specific" meaning those that feed on dogs will not feed on cats.

FOLLOW UP WITH SPRAY: In addition to shampooing your pet, spray him twice a week with an OTC lice or flea spray. Sprays will kill any leftover lice that happen to hatch between shampoos.

DO THE POWDER: While lice powders usually aren't as effective as sprays, they can still assist in the eradication effort.Apply powder from head to toe{and tail}..do not put powder on the face from the box, use your fingers and rub gently around eyes and nose.

GO FOR THE SOURCE: Even if your pet is lice-free, she can still be reinfested by lice waiting on floors, carpet or bedding. To Prevent this, it's a good idea to wash your pets bedding. Also wash grooming tools, kennels or pet carriers.

STOP THE ITCH: The same stuff you take for hay fever, {Benedryl} can also provide itch control for your pet. Ask your vet for the proper dosage for your pets.

WHEN TO SEE THE VET: In severe cases, a pet could lose 1/4 of her blood volume within several weeks, causing anemia or even shock. Symptoms include weakness, drowsines &, white inside the pets mouth..it is critical to see the Vet asap if you notice any of these symptoms.

Hi Maia!
I hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas! It must have been so much fun with the little one; I bet she got a lot of mew toys to play with. We had a good one here but mom had to work Furriday. Bummer! At least brother and his g/f came and had lunch with her and she got to see them when she got home for a little while before they left. Yesterday mom's brother and his wife, and sister and her husband came up. They haven't been to our house in YEARS. They went to a restaurant that was built by one of the Studebaker family. It was very interesting and nicely decorated for Christmas. Today mom has nothing on the agenda so she may just do some relaxing. She might go out with dad and get a new roll of wrapping paper for next year but she doesn't need much else.

Thank you and your mom so much for the nice Christmas Card with the little tabby cat magnet. Mom put it on the fridge. So nice! Thanks a lot!

Have a wonderful day! Big hugs!

Good evening kitties!! This evenings topic: BLEEDING!!!

For dogged dogs and curious cats, minor and messy cuts and scrapes are anything but rare. They can step on glass, bash into sharp objects or get caught on barbed wire. In most cases, a little first-aid, and perhaps some reassurance is all they need!

PRESS ON THE WOUND: With any wound, the first thing to do is stop the bleeding. Using a hanker-chief, a towel or a clean cloth, apply firm pressure directly over the wound. The bleeding will usually slow down in a few minutes.

FORGET THE TOURNIQUET: A lot of limbs have been lost because the blood supply was cut off for too long.

GIVE HIM A TRIM: Once you have the bleeding under control, it's a good idea to trim the hair around the wound, using scissors or an electric trimmers. This will keep the wound clean and help speed up the healing process.

PROTECT YOURSELF: An injured animal is a scared animal. If you suspect there's even a small chance you might get bitten, it would be a smart idea to muzzle your pet. For small dogs and cats, you can protect yourself by wrapping them in a towel or pillowcase.

CLEAN IT WELL: The danger from most wounds isn't necessarily the bleeding but the infection that may set in later. To prevent this, thoroughly wash the wound with warm water and anti-bacterial soap. Flush for at 5-minutes.

SMEAR ON PROTECTION: Once the wound is clean, applying an OTC antibiotic ointment like Neosporin will prevent infection.

WRAP IT UP: To keep the would clean and protected, it's a good idea to wrap it with gauze. Just make sure you do not wrap it too tight. About once a day, remove the bandage and clean the wound with lukewarm water, then reapply the antibiotic ointment and wrap it back up.

PAUSE FOR PAWS: While paw injuries are usually not serious, they can bleed a lot. Slipping a clean white sock over the paw will help keep the wound and your floors clean until the bleeding stops.

WHEN TO SEE THE VET: If the wound is deep and there's an excessive amount of blood, you need an experts care. Deep wounds, which involve tendons and muscle, often cause severe blood loss and increase the risk of infection. Your pet could need a transfusion as well as stitches and an anesthesia.

Good evening kitties. Today's topic: OBESITY!!!

Is your pooch a little pudgy? Is you cat a wee bit fat? they're not alone. about 1 in 3 dogs and cats in the USA are overweight. That means there are some 39 million chubby pets waddling around.

BEGIN WITH THE RIB TEST: To tell if your pet is overweight or merely stocky, run your hand across his side. If you can't feel his ribs, you know it's time to trim his tummy.

GO WALKING: Many cats enjoy walking on a leash and are trained...but if Fluffy is not leash-trained, you can still play vigorously with her..try playing with feather wands or laser lights, but make her jump and run. You can take Fido out for a walk 10-20 minutes about twice a day.

CUT BACK ON CALORIES: When starting your pet on a diet, reduce the amount you feed him by about one-quarter. Then after 2 weeks, see if you can feel his ribs, if he is still too plump, reduce another 1/4 off his food.

NIX THE SNACKS: However tempting it may be to slip your pet a little something between meals, remind yourself that those are just additional calories he will be better off avoiding.

DOLE OUT LOW CAL TREATS: To please your pets palate without packing on the pounds, you might try giving him high-fiber, low-fat snacks from your kitchen..try green beans, raw carrots or unbuttered popcorn.

GUARD AGAINST THEFT: Dogs and cats{especially cats} can be really sneaky when they're not getting as much food as they are accustomed to. Keep garbage out of their reach, keep an eye on the table, keep bread away from cats..dieting cats go crazy for bread.

MAKE IT LIGHT: To help your pet slim down, switch her food to one that is high in dietary fiber and low in fat.

WHEN TO SEE HER VET: Your formerly svelte pet hasn't been eating more then usual, but he has begun to resemble a pot-bellied pig. There are a number of dangerous conditions, among them diabetes or congestive heart failure that make themselves known with weight gain...that is why you should always check with your vet before starting your pet on any diet.

TOMORROW: MOVING ANXIETY!!!

Good afternoon/evening kitties! Today's topic is: BITING & NIPPING!

Kittens love nothing more than to stalk and pounce, sometimes delivering a painful bite in the process. Puppies like to bite/chew..on furniture, shoes or even you....but when puppies and kittens grow up and are still biting/nipping, here are a few tricks to keep it under control.

PROVIDE PLENTY OF TOYS: Dogs/Cats have a natural need to use their teeth. To help them put their mouths to good use, provide them with plenty of toys--and give them lots of praise when they use them.Dogs enjoy rubber or rawhide, while most cats enjoy cloth toys or a rubber mouse.

KEEP YOUR SKIN SAFE: Pets will chew what you give them, and if their "main" toy happens to be your hand, they are learning a dangerous habit. NEVER allow your pet to chew directly on you, give them toys instead.

GIVE HER A CHEWING OUT: The next time he points his teeth in your direction, look him straight in the eyes and firmly yell, "NO". Then ignore him for several minutes. Once he understands you are not happy with what he he is doing, he will try his best to please you next time.

SAY IT WITH SPRAY: The next time Fluffy or Fido tries a nip, spray him with a squirt bottle filled with water, after a few times of getting sprayed, he will get the hint.

***~~CATS ONLY!!!~~***

DON'T FIGHT BACK: It's natural to pull away when your ferocious feline sinks her teeth--in fear, fun or anger--into you. Unfortunately, that makes her instincts tell her to bite harder. So the next time she nails you, try to let your hand go limp for just a second until she relaxes--then pull your hand free and give her a firm scolding!

Tomorrow: OBESITY!!!

Good afternoon. Today's topic is: CONSTIPATION!!

Your cats litter box hasn't been disturbed all day. Your dogs pooper scooper is beginning to collect dust. Could your furry friends be irregular?? Dogs and cats rarely get constipated, but it can happen and when it does, here are a few tips to help them 'move'.

MOBILIZE WITH METAMUCIL: This OTC laxative contains Psyllium seeds husks, which pull water into the stool and help move things along. Ask your vet for the right dosage for your pets size. To make it more pleasing, try mixing it with a small portion of her fave canned food. Or just add it to her dry kibble....make sure you put plenty of fresh water nearby so the Metamucil doesn't congeal.

BRING ON THE BRAN: A sprinkle of oat bran every day can help keep constipation away.Depending on the size of your pet add 1/2 tsp to 2 TBSP of oat bran to his food daily.

PASS IT WITH PUMPKIN: Canned pumpkin is an excellent source of fiber that can make your pet regular again. The bonus is that both dogs and cats seem to enjoy it. Mix a TBSP or 2 in her food for several days or until she is regular again.

SEND IN THE COWS: You are always told never to give dogs/cats milk cause it causes diarrhea. But when you have a constipated pet, milk could be just what she needs. Give her 1/8 of a cup if she is small or 1/2 cup for larger breeds{Dogs}..when she is regular again, wean her off the milk gradually.

WET HIS WHISTLE: Water is essential to your pets health, always have plenty available. Try placing several bowls of fresh water all over your house. Water helps his digestive system stay in balance.

SAY NO TO BONES: Eating rib, chicken or other crunchy soft bones can cause things to get blocked inside...or your small animal may choke on one or cut their throat if they get cut on the splintered bone.

TAKE HER FOR A WALK {DOGS}: The longer you make her wait to go, the harder and drier the stools get and that can lead to problems quickly...give your dog plenty of potty time.

WHEN TO SEE THE VET: If you notice your pet has not 'gone' in days and everything you tried is n't working, call your vet asap..he may have a blockage preventing him from passing the stool. Your Vet can check out the pet and give you instructions on the course of treatment.

TOMORROW: NIPPING & BITING!

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!!

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.

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!!!
