Pet motto: Don't mess with me. AND.. A good furever home should be cherished.. Amaretto's letter to Santa - Dear Santa, Yesterday, I overheard two small humans talking about you. They said they had written you a letter asking for some gifts, and were excited that you would be visiting their homes to make your very special deliveries. I must admit, the whole thing sounded a bit farfetched – I had never heard anything like it in all my six years. There was something about large animals with horns that fly through the sky pulling a sleigh. The only animals I’ve seen walk on four feet like me. And I don’t know where the North Pole is, but I’ve lived at Animal Friends in the North Hills for nearly a year and a half now, so I figure maybe you’re close by. Yesterday, as I groomed my long gray and white fur and napped in my cage, I had a thought. If you can bring presents to good girls and boys, you might be able to help me. I’ll admit I do love kitty treats, and enjoy a good romp with a laser light. But do you know what I really want? A home of my own, with someone to love me. When the volunteers let me out of my cage to play, I love their company and rub up against them to tell them to pet me. And you won’t need mistletoe if you want to give me a holiday kiss. I’ve spent some time in foster care, and was so happy to be in a home. Instead of visions of sugarplums, thoughts of a loving, forever place to hang my stocking dance in my head. This holiday season, I’m hoping someone is looking for a loyal furry friend. Instead of delivering a present to me, I’d love to hitch a ride in your sleigh to my own special place, where I can give all my love to a someone with a quiet home and room in their heart for me. If you can find your way to Animal Friends, I’ll be waiting for you, and hoping to see you. We don’t have milk and cookies here, but I’ll take up a collection among my fellow residents and we’ll leave a pile of yummy cat treats for your reindeer. We’ll even promise not to hiss at them. So Santa, although I’ve had my doubts, I’m hoping that this year will bring a holiday miracle, not just for me, but for all the other homeless dogs, cats and bunnies here at Animal Friends. We’ll be waiting to hear hooves on the rooftop, and dreaming of warm laps and cuddling up on a cold winter day in a home of our own. Love, Amaretto P.S. Ammie's wish was granted twice!

How We Met

She was at the shelter for over a year and a half and reminded me of Hannibal. She was abused and seized, and needed a home where someone could be patient and work with her. I saw her letter to Santa in the shelter newsletter and it broke my heart. I knew I had to adopt her and give her a chance.

Her first Mom, Kathy S., passed away Sunday, April 17, 2011.

Ammie was adopted on April 21st. She started on her trip from Pittsburgh, PA to her new home on Monday, April 25 with the "Honeysuckle Hauling Company" with a 3-day stopover at the Kitty B&B-Atlanta, where she had a spa day! Ammie was treated to a new hairdo & pawdicure before continuing on to her new home. She arrived in North Port FL on Saturday April 30th, 2011, at 7:30pm.


**Ammie misses her brothers Bennie, Indie, Angel Giovani, & Angel Kato, but she knows they will all be in touch with one another. Ammie also believes she is a "world" traveler, and I'm not going to tell her any different!

***Amaretto (#116191) was on CatChannel for 2 years 4 months & 6 days before her current profile was created.

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!

Good morning kitties! Today: The "EYES" have it: "EYE IRRITATIONS"

Your cats is spending more time pawing her crusty eyes then playing with her catnip toys. One of the most common eye problems in pets is conjunctivitis. {Our AJ had this}. Also know as 'pink-eye', it is an inflammation of the membrane covering the inside of the eyelids and the front of the eye.

WIPE IT OUT: To speed healing and make your pet more comfortable, you'll want to clean the discharge from her eyelids. Wet a wet cloth or a cotton ball with warm water, squeeze it out and gently wipe the 'goop' from around your pets eye. Repeat twice daily or as often as needed.

TRY A SCRUB: Instead of using water, you may want to try to OTC eye scrub. Eye scrubs are pH Balanced and may cause less stinging then water. You can buy eye scrubs at your local pet retailer, ones made for humans can be more harsh for your pet.

HELP HIM SHED SOME TEARS: While eye scrubs can help keep the lids clean, you'll also want to wash the surface of the eye. A Good way to do this is with artificial tears, which can help wash away particles that may be causing the problem.

CODDLE HER WITH A COMPRESS: Covering your pets eyes with a damp warm compress can be very soothing. Wet a soft cloth in lukewarm water, wring it out and gently hold it across her eyes for five minutes. This can make your pets eyes feel much better, and it goes a long way toward keeping her eyes clean.

TAKE HIM TO THE BARBER: Regular grooming can help prevent eye irritations before they get started. Fur in your pets eyes can cause irritation that can lead to conjunctivitis if its matted up around the corners of the eye. Brushing the hair back away from the eyes or getting a groomer to cut off the excess hair will prevent irritations.

WHEN TO SEE THE VET: While conjunctivitis isn't difficult to treat, and eye infection can result in permanent damage, so you'll want to see vet at the 1st sign of problems...he may give you eye drops, or an ointment for the eye or a mild antibiotic if the eye is infected. {our Vet gave AJ an ointment to use 2 times daily}

KEEP The suggestions coming in!! TOMORROW: The "EYES" have it, part 2: VISION PROBLEMS!!!

Good afternoon. Today's topic: ARTHRITIS!!!

Is your once graceful cat shuffling around like Walter Brennan? Arthritis can be a real pain in the neck, hip, elbow, back, or anywhere it strikes. There are many types of arthritis and the one most likely to strike your pet is Osteoarthritis. Also called degenerative joint disease.

LIGHTEN HIS LOAD: Heavy pets are considerably more likely to suffer joint pain than their trimmer counterparts. Putting "Fluffy" on a diet is one of the best things you can do for her. Being slim reduces the stress on the joints snd can provide relief.

PUT HIS BEST PAW FORWARD: Regular exercise is vital to controlling the progression of arthritis. Try to take your pet on a walk 3 times a day for 20 minutes. Many cats really like going for walks, although they insist on which way they want to go, unlike a dog.

If you do not have a leash-trained cat, play vigorously with him for 20 minutes, 3 times a day. If 20 minutes seems too long and your pet is limping along, take him home and try shorter walks or play periods.

LET HIM SLEEP INSIDE: When it's cold and damp outside, your arthritic pet is going to hurt. So if he is an outdoors sleeper, bring him in during cold damp nights, your pet will reward you.

MAKE A COZY BED: If your pet sleeps on a hard surface, she will get some relief if you switch her to a soft cozy bed instead. In the cold damp climates you might consider a heated pet bed, available at most local pet retailers.

RAISE HIS TABLE: If your pet has a stiff neck, try putting his food and water bowls off the floor so he doesn't have to lower his head at mealtimes...food bowl stands are available at local pet stores.

HELP HER BE A SOCIAL CLIMBER: If you pet has trouble with stairs, you may want to install a ramp to help him go up and down without assistance.

TRY THE TOWEL TRICK: If your pet is having trouble walking, you can help her out by slinging a towel beneath his belly and using it to help him stand.

FOR DOGS ONLY: {I KNOW MANY OF YOU HAVE DOGS}
BUFFER IT WITH OTC: Give your DOG buffered aspirin, it can be a great help with arthritis pain. Experts recommend 1/4 of a 325-milligram tablet per 10 pounds of dog twice a day.

NEVER GIVE ASPIRIN TO A CAT. It can irritate the stomache.

TOMORROW: Spraying!!{pew, what stinks?}

Good afternoon. Today we are discussing DEAFNESS. I can hear well, and I sure hope all of you can as well, but in case you have a hard time!!!

Some cats {and dogs} are born deaf. Others lose their hearing with age or chronic ear infections. Fortunately, with a little extra care, your pet can manage well.

Do they perk up their ears at the sound of their name, can they hear the doorbell, the sound of a can opening, if you notice any of these signs that used to get kitty{or doggie} running and all of sudden, nothing...your worst fear has been has been confirmed, she is not being stubborn, she is deaf.

GIVE HER A LEASH ON LIFE: Always take a deaf pet outdoors on a leash. They cannot hear predators or traffic noises, but you can, so leash her up to avoid any trouble or danger!

PRACTICE PATIENCE: Living with a deaf pet can be a challenge. They're often harder to train and may not play with you as often. You really need to show kindness and patience and it will pay off. Realize that you deaf pet wants to make things normal as much as you do, so be will willing to work gently to help her out.

TRY A NEW LANGUAGE: Your pet cannot hear your commands, but it is possible for them to see them. Hand signals are an excellent way to work with deaf dogs, Even cats that are deaf can benefit from a little signal training. Your vet can recommend a trainer to work with you and your pet.

LEAD HIM BY THE NOSE: Both dogs & cats have a keen sense of smell. In many cases you can summon them by creating olfactory waves---waving fish nibbles or a piece of dried liver through the air. Once your pet gets a whiff, he will realize you want him to come and will be right there.

BE ON TAP: To get your pets attention when she's sleeping or not looking in your direction, walk in front of her and tap her gently. A Deaf animal cannot hear the normal cues that someone is approaching. DO NOT run in the direction of the animal without warning, you will scare her.

SHOW HIM THE LIGHTS: At night, flashing the lights can help get your pets attention.As soon as she looks up, give her the hand signal that tell her what you want her to do {sit, stay, etc}. Then after the pet does what you want, reward her with love or a treat. Eventually your pet will come to realize when you flash the outside lights it is time to come in.

GET A COMPANION: Even if your deaf pet can't hear a stranger at the door, she can get clues from a companion. Dogs for instance will see the companion running to door and will follow. A deaf cat may watch her companion to see when it's time to eat or if someone is coming into the room...companion pets can be invaluable.

TODAYS Part 2 will be posted on the CMR ONLY! It is "When to see the VET"
Keep them suggestions coming in.
Tomorrow: FLEAS!!!

Good afternoon. Today's topic is 'BEGGING". Who amongst us begs for mom's food??? Ummm!!!

FEED HER FIRST: If your cat is really full, she won't be inspired to ask for more. {Wanna bet?}

DON'T GIVE INTO GUILT: No matter how much he manipulates your emotions with those sad eyes, remind yourself that kitty has been fed and doesn't need human food.

MAKE HER LEAVE FOR LEFTOVERS: If you decide to slip her a snack, don't do it from the table. Otherwise kitty will begin confusing your mealtime with hers. Always put leftover pieces for kitty in her bowl.

LAY DOWN THE LAW: Usually just raising your voice will send your cat scurrying off in a different direction, if that doesn't work, blow a bike horn or rattle a can full of coins...this will send her dashing to another room.

SAY IT WITH SPRAY: Cats can be incorrigible beggars, even jumping on tables and stealing food when you won't hand it over. To discourage this brazen behavior, surprise your cat with a blast from a spray bottle. Most cats hate water and will jump from the table and run.

ISOLATE THE PROBLEM: When your cat is driving you crazy, tell him "NO" and calmly put him in another room and shut the door til dinner is over. You may get complaints of meowing, but don't let him out until you are done eating.

Good luck kitties!! Mom has already spoiled us and we always beg {me and Jesse}

Today's topic: BAD STINKY BREATH!!!

ATTACK THE PLAQUE: Think about how your mouth would smell if you didn't brush your teeth for a few days, much less a few years.
Brushing twice a day would be ideal, but twice a week is sufficient.

START 'EM YOUNG: Brushing your cats teeth may sound like a scene in a horror flick, but if you begin when kitty is just a few months old, the experience can quickly become a pleasant one.

HOW TO BRUSH: Begin by gently handling and stroking your cats mouth for a few minutes a day. After a few days, lift up her lip on one side and with a piece of gauze on your finger, begin brushing in a circular motion on the outer surface of a few teeth. Do this each day by adding more teeth and eventually you will be able to use a miniature brush available in pet stores..be sure it is soft bristled and designed only for pets.

TICKLE THEIR TASTE BUDS: Some pet toothpastes come in flavors like poultry, beef or malt to make the experience more palatable for your pet. DO NOT USE HUMAN TOOTHPASTE THAT FOAMS! Pets cannot spit, and if they swallow the foam, it gives them upset stomachs.

REACH FOR A SPRAY: If your cat doesn't take kindly to having his teeth brushed, reach for a spray. Many pet stores sell mouth sprays for pets which do the same as minty sprays humans use. They are purely cosmetic.

CAN THE CANNED FOOD: Switching to a dry kibble may help to improve mouth odor, because it scrapes the surface of the teeth.

RICE TO THE OCCASION: Whole grains, like cooked brown rice, can help food move along the digestive tract more readily. Better digestion plays a role in better breath. We recommend adding a small portion of rice to your pets regular diet on a daily basis.

SCRAP THE SCRAPS: Breath often reflects the diet, if you're feeding your cat things like leftover spaghetti flavored with garlic, you have found the source of the stinky breath.

GO FOR GREEN: Chlorophyll tablets, available in pet stores, can aid digestion and sweeten your cats breath.

TOMORROW: BEGGING!!!

Hi Ammie & Mom & Angel YumYum!
Thank you for the condolences on my furfathers crossing. Grandma is still having a hard time about it. She misses seeing him.
Baby J the next morning wakes up and checks his tummy to make sure he still has his fluff on. He does and is happy. He walks out of the tickle monsters cave singing a song,about he had a date and she wasnt late and that the tickle monster was great. Midnight is up along with the rest of the family preparing a breakfast. The newborns are in their highchairs having their breakfast. The apartment door flies open and in walk Savannah and CloudStorm. The newborns upon seeing this scramble from their highchairs rush over to see their mommy and daddy being home! Savannah drops her bags and scoops up her babies. The newborns are squealing with delight. Cloudstorm says he could use some help with the other bags. Baby J and Grandpa rush to go help him. The newborns are excited to show their mom the halloween decorations. Savannah is quite pleased on how the apartment looks. CloudStorm, Baby J and Grandpa come in with bags and the girls start putting the groceries away. Savannah announces they are going to have a fashion show after breakfast and the newborns are going to showing off the new clothing they got. Later the girls are going out to pick out costumes. Breakfast is served and everyones served and everyone hurries up to eat. They are excited about the fashion show. Breakfast is done and the dishes are cleared away and washed. The family goes to the living room. The fashion show is about to begin. The newborns are excited to show off the clothing they got.
Love hugs and kisses
Baby J and Family

HELP THE KIDS UNDERSTAND: Like people, many elderly pets get a bit cranky and intolerant of interruption. While your senior kitty will probably slink away from any hubbub in the house, you may need to ask the kids to be especially considerate of the elderly dog. A lot of times children don't recognize the early signs of grumpiness and will get bitten.

SLIP HER A SUPPLIMENT: In lieu of snacks, many vets 'reward' their patients with a pet vitamin. They are not high in calories, and they have ingredients that make them flavorable to pets. Pet stores carry a variety of chewable pet vitamins.

SLIP THEM SOME ANTOOXIDENTS: In humans, studies have shown that daily doses of the antioxident vitamins C & E can help protect against heart disease. Cats can take 500 milligrams a day of vitamin C and 50 units of Vitamin E. Check with your Vet for precise dosing instructions. For cats, try mixing the vitamins with a little canola or olive oil and smearing the mixture on her paws, your cat will just lick it off.

Good afternoon..mom is still feeling crappy, but she knows I need to do this. Today's topic: THE AGING FELINE! Suggested by my Angel sis, A Shadow!

It seems like only yesterday your cat was a cuddly ball of fur endlessly romping around and playing. Most cats live on average 15-16 years, but there are plenty of 20+ year old felines out there. Many kitties stay healthy as Seniors, but many succumb to illness.

BEGIN WITH REGULAR VET VISITS: Once your cat enters her middle years, it's a good idea to take her to the Vet at least once a year. When you take kitty to the Vet for her first "Senior" checkup, your vet may recommend that she have a comprehensive exam that tells how she will feel as she ages.

KEEP THOSE PAWS MOVING: Daily exercise will help keep your kitty slim and flexible, helping stave off age-related disorders like arthritis or digestive problems.

WATCH HIS WEIGHT: The #1 problem in the pet population is obesity. How to tell if kitty is overweight: They should stay fairly sleek throughout their lives. If you can't feel his ribs or see his waist, he is more then likely overweight.

SWITCH TO HEALTHY TREATS: Giving your pets little snacks seems to be part of the 'animal/human' bond. But if your cat is elderly or overweight you could be killing her with kindness. Carrot sticks are a healthy treat, although you might have a hard time convincing your cat that a carrot is just as tasty as a liver treat.

KEEP THE WATER BOWL FULL: Many cats naturally drink less as they age, which can cause dehydration. try keeping water bowls in every room, this is important, especially if your kitty isn't getting around as easily as he used to.

KEEP HER CLOSE: As they age, many animals begin losing their hearing, making them vulnerable to accidents. Keep an older animal outside on a leash..you will need to become their ears and take more precautions on their behalf.

CHANGE DIETS CAREFULLY: Cats don't like changes in their daily routine, and changing to a new food cause them to sulk and leave the table for a few days. There is m ore at stake then being hungry, since cats that don't eat can develop a serious, possibly fatal condition called Hepatic Lipidosis. You need to change your cats diets slowly. At first, give her no more than 1/4 of the new food added to her old food, ..add a little more each day over a 2-week period of time, or perhaps longer.

KEEP KITTY WARM & COMFY: It is important to keep elderly cats warm and comfy. Give them an old blanket to cuddle in or make their bed close to the heat source or try purchasing a heated kitty bed, available at Pet Stores.

PART 2--next blog!

Keep those suggestions coming in. TOMORROW: STINKY BREATH

Good afternoon. Today we are discussing TAPEWORMS. Nobody suggested it, so I just decided to do it. Had to go online and research this.

WHAT ARE TAPEWORMS: Tapeworms are the most common internal parasite in adult cats. They live in the small intestines, and vary in length from less than 1" to several feet. The scolex {head} of the parasite fastens itself to the wall of the gut using hooks and suckers. The body is composed of segments that contain egg packets. To eliminate tapeworm infection, the head must be destroyed. Otherwise the worm will regenerate.

The body segments containing the eggs are passed in the feces. These are called proglottids. Fresh moist segments are capable of moving. They are about .25" long. Occasionally, you might see them in the fur around your cat's anus or in her stool. When dry, they resemble grains of rice.

TAPEWORM SPECIES: There are 2 common species found in cats; both are transmitted by an intermediate host. DIPYLIDIUM CANINUM is acquired from fleas or lice that harbor immature tapeworms in their intestines. These insects acquire the parasite by eating tapeworm eggs. The cat MUST bite or swallow the insect to become infested. The tapeworm TAENIA TEANIAFORMIS is acquired by eating rodents, uncooked meats, raw freshwater fish, or discarded animal parts.

TREATMENT: Praziquantal is one of the most effective medications for both common specials. Other suitable treatments are Fenbendazole and Espiprantal. Use only under Veternary guidance. Deworming must be combined with control of fleas and lice, in the case of DIPYLIDIUM CANINUM, and by preventing roaming and hunting in the case of other tapeworms.

TOMORROW: CLAW PROBLEMS. Keep them suggestions coming in.

Oh my goodness ...
... we've had so much going in that I've not been keeping in touch with dear furriends like you. Mom and Dad spent some time in Texas earlier in the year visiting with Mom's sister who had terminal cancer. She is in heaven now, and I noticed her kitty has crossed the Rainbow Bridge in the opposite direction, joining his furrever mom in people heaven.

After that, the pawrents flew to Illinois to visit with family members they've not seen in years. They got nearly to Chicago's O'Hare Airport when a massive storm shut everything down. The plane diverted to Des Moines Iowa overnight. Dad get them a room and a car ... the next day they drove 10 hours to reach family members in Southern Illinois. If they'd waited till noon and taken the flight to Chicago, they'd have been stuck at the airport for days due to flooding ... would not have been able to see all their family. It all worked out for the best.

Coming home, they got notice by email at 4 a.m. that their return flight had cancelled. Dad got them one for early afternoon, and they headed to O'Hare Airport. When Dad checked on other flights to the west coast, he was told they'd put them on a wait list, but there were already about 50 people on the list ... for every flight to the coast. Mom and Dad had a nice lunch, Mom walked about a mile up and down the concourse to get her exercise, and they got on the plane at 1:30 p.m. It actually got them home. Mom could not believe they didn't end up in Montreal or New Mexico ... she almost kissed the ground when they arrived home.

Dad's sister is now in a facility for people with Alzheimer's. The pawrents have dealt with a few other things, but Mom is finally online and visiting those near and dear to my heart.

I hope all is well with you. Please forgive me for not being here sooner and more often. Dropping off a vote, purrs and whisker tickles, and some tuna treats I baked myself. A.Q. Cherish and Mom June.

Come visit me, A. Q. Cherish & K. Thunder forever.

♥ Thank You So Much!! ♥
... for coming to my birthday pawty yesterday and for giving me this wonderful surprise this morning!
Mom and I haven't been feeling so well lately and we have not been very active on CC but we miss everyone. Our CC family is always in our thoughts.
I had a great birthday. Mom and Dad gave me tuna treats along with lots of cuddles and a new catnip toy.
I'm having antibiotics to help me with an infection in my skin and although I don't like them at all, they are making me feel better.
Thank you for your friendship, lovely blogs, goodies and nice gifts! You are the best friends in the whole world!

FRIENDS

A friend is like a flower,
a rose to be exact.
Or maybe like a brand new gate
that never comes unlatched.
A friend is like an owl,
both beautiful and wise.
Or perhaps is like a ghost,
whose spirit never dies.
A friend is like a heart
that goes strong until the end.
Where would we be in this world
if we didn't have a friend?...

With much love,
from your friends always,
Mrs. Pucca and all the Buenos Aires Kitties!

Come visit me, Mrs.Pucca - THANK U FOR MY COTD!, Queen Memories, Angels Blackie & Lady Lucy, Sally ♥ Felix, Queen Lola ♥ Missing Angel Martin ♥ & Willow & Charlie.

Hi kitties. Today my topic is on DANDRUFF. Suggested by: LUKE & CASER

TAKE THE PLUNGE: Since dandruff is a sign of flaky skin, giving your cat regular baths will help wash the flakes away before the accumulate.To bathe your pet, use warm{NOT hot} water. Use a mild shampoo like baby shampoo and massage it well into your pets skin. Rinse thoroughly and dry him well.

FOR CATS: The BIG struggle isn't getting rid of the dandruff, it's getting them into the bath in the 1st place..{How true} For tips on bathing kitties.....OK..this will be part 2 today!

GO FOR MORE POWER: If baby shampoo doesn't help, try using a pet dandruff shampoo that contains sulfur or salicylic acid. Leave the later in place for about 5 minutes to the give the active ingredients time to work. You can buy medicated pet shampoos at most Pet store retailers. DO NOT use medicated shampoos intended for humans because they can be harmful for pets.

ADD OATMEAL TO BATH: The same colloidal oatmeal{Aveeno} that people use for dry skin can also relieve flaking skin in pets. Aveeno is marvelous for pets with dandruff because it moisturizes dry skin.

GIVE HIM A SPRITZ: If you live in a dry climate, spraying your cat's coat with an oil rinse will help lubricate the skin and lock in moisture. This is available in most pet stores.

GIVE KITTY THE BRUSH OFF: Grooming your cat regularly helps distribute natural oils evenly over dry skin, which will help keep dandruff down. Choose a brush that is not too harsh.

CHECK THE OIL: Sometimes we'
ll see dandruff when animals aren't getting enough fat in their diets. Giving your kitty fish-oil supplements will help improve metabolism of fats in skin tissue. Try mixing 1/2- 1 tsp of fish oil into your cats food daily. You can also use sunflower oil.

UPGRADE HER DIET: Some generic pet foods do not provide the full range of vitamins and minerals your pet needs to maintain healthy skin.

PART 2-HOW TO GIVE KITTY A BATH is only posted on the CMR. {Thanks}

TOMORROW: TAPEWORM. Keep the suggestions coming in.

Good evening all..today were are discussing that awful stuff called DIARRHEA{upset tummy, too}. Today's suggestion by: TOBY!!

TRY YOUR HAND AT BLAND: When your cat is ready to eat again, keep her digestive system calm by giving her cooked white rice mixed with boiled hamburger or skinless white meat chicken. Vets recommend mixing 2 parts rice to one part meat and feeding your cat small amounts every for hours for 2 days.

FIRM IT WITH FIBER: If your cats{or dogs} stools are still a little soft--either after or during her bland diet, try adding a small amount of Metamusil to her food.Depending on your pets size, he recommends giving between 1 1/4 tsp and 1 TBS of Metamusil a day for 2-3 days....just mix it water and pour it on her food.

KEEP HIS LIQUID LEVELS HIGH: Since Diarrhea can rapidly deplete the body of essential fluids, be sure to keep her water bowl full. It's also a good idea to fill a separate bowl with Gatorade...Like other sports drinks, Gatorade will help replenish minerals the body loses and needs, like potassium and sodium.

CUT OUT THE DAIRY: Most adult animals have difficulty digesting milk because they lack the enzyme{lactase} needed to digest a sugar{lactose} in milk. If you are feeding your pet milk and she has diarrhea, cut the milk out and you should see results in a few days.

SUPPRESS THE STRESS: Visiting the Vet, moving or having a new pet at home are just a few of the things that can upset your pet. To prevent emotional upheavals from getting the upper hand, talk to her gently and give her plenty of reassurance.

SAY NO TO DRUGS: While there are a number of OTC medications that can help ease the runs, many vets feel it's best to let the illness run its course.

SUGGESTIONS FROM TOBY: 1 tsp of yogurt daily for upset tummies and he recommends Mashed sweet potatoes for diarrhea and says they "really do work".

TOMORROW: DANDRUFF/DRY SKIN...keep them suggestion coming in.

Today we are talking about CAT FLU..yes, it is that time of year. We can get sick, too!!

FIGHT IT WITH FOOD: While a sick cat is rarely a hungry cat, it's still important to encourage her to eat. A Good diet will help keep her immune system strong, making her better able to fight off infection. To stimulate her appetite, try giving her a warm meal..add warm water to kibble to make a gravy or just pop her food in the microwave for a few seconds.

ORDER SOMETHING ODORIFEROUS: Since your cat probably has a stuffed-up nose, you can tempt her taste buds by giving her something with BIG flavor--and smell. Canned tuna is always good. You can place some on a plate or mix it with her regular food.

Cats also like high-protein foods like cottage cheese{Yummy}, cheese, scrambled eggs and chicken. Pop a skinless boneless chicken breast in the microwave and then cut it up real fine. Most cats will eat something like that.

LEND A HAND: If your finicky feline just sniffs your offerings and walks away, try dabbing a little food on her nose or paw.

GIVE HIM A HANKIE:Cats with flu often get an uncomfortable buildup of mucus around the eyes and nose. To help your kitty breathe better and feel more comfortable, keep the eyes and nose clean is important. Dampen a soft washcloth or a cotton ball with warm water and gently swab away the secretions. You can also use pre-moistened baby towelettes which contain soothing ingredients like lanolin and also vera.

SOOTHE WITH SALINE: If your cat is having difficulty breathing, giving him saline nose drops will thin the sticky mucus and help clear his nose.

HOW TO ADMINISTER: With the dropper in one hand, tip kitty's head back with your other. Place one or two drops in each nostril, then keep her head elevated for a minute to give them time to work. You can repeat this twice a day.

GIVE EYE RELIEF: You can also use saline drops to help relieve sore, weepy eyes.{if you use the same dropper, wash with warm water between uses} Just put a drop or 2 in each eye, repeat 3-5 times a day. Or you can use over-the-counter eyedrops containing boric acid.

HELP WITH HUMIDITY: Putting extra moisture into the air with a humidifier will help ease congestion and improve breathing.
Another alternative is to take your cat into the bathroom when you bathe or shower.

TAKE PROTECTIVE MEASURES: Vets often recommend a vaccine that's very effective at preventing cat flu. While it doesn't work 100% of the time, it will dramatically improve your cats chances for staying healthy.

WHEN TO SEE THE VET: Cat flu is generally no more serious among the feline crowd then the common cold is for humans...if your kitty has a temperature over 101* for more then 24 hours, see the Vet, as it can lead to pneumonia, anemia or dehydration.

TOMORROW: Diarrhea. KEEP those suggestions coming in.

Today we are discussing EXCESSIVE GROOMING: {Psychogenic Alopecia} today's suggestion is from: SPANKY JACK

CAUSES: It is important to differentiate what causes over-grooming, it could be stress related or pain related. Take kitty to the VET 1st if you suspect over grooming to find the cause before you treat it.

If there is a painful area, the licking will be focused there. For example, back pain or anal sac impactation will prompt the cat to lick just that particular area.

Where a cat focuses her licking can give clues to the root of the problem, which could be any number of things--fleas, a neurologic problem, a chiropractic problem, parasites, food allergies, or a reaction to dust, pollen, or mold.

Conditions that are NOT skin related but can cause over grooming can include cystitis, hyper-thyroidism, and anal sac problems.

SPOTTING THIS BEHAVIOR: Cats spend about 30-40% of their days grooming themselves, and much of the remaining time is spent napping. So it is common for cat owners to have no clue there is a problem until they notice significant hair loss, bald spots or scabs from over grooming.

HEPING A CAT WITH PSYCHOGENIC ALOPECIA: When all medical causes have been ruled out or resolved and you've narrowed the problem to an issue of obsessive behavioral licking, treatment should be focused on stress reduction.

EATING HABITS: Cats like to eat at the same time everyday, so make feeding time very consistent. Keep food bowls in the same location, and of course, keep them clean.

LITTERBOXES: Keep litter boxes in the exact location and keep them clean using mild soap and hot water and a disinfectant.

INTERACTING WITH PEOPLE: Most cats enjoy interacting with people, so take time every day to make sure your cat's emotional needs are being met. You can involve physical activity with interactive toys such as a laser pointer. {We love this toy}. Brushing your kitty is beneficial. MOST cats love to be brushed an d find it enjoyable.

HIGH UP PLACES: Provide kitty with hide boxes, access to high perches, like wall shelving, and keep scratching posts in kitty's play room. You can also consider window perches to help provide entertainment.

MOST IMPORTANTLY: You need to be patient, as excessive grooming problems usually take some time to resolve. But with consistent attention, affection, and routine, most kitties do get their over grooming under control. They re-grow their hair, and their quality of life improves within a few months.

TOMORROW: Cat flu{it's getting cold in some areas} Keep these suggestions coming in.

Good morning..getting an early start today. One of mom's Niece's is in the hospital and she is leaving for the day...not sure when we she will be back..she got invited to stay for supper.

Today we are discussing the troublesome problem that face all us kitties: HAIRBALLS. Today's suggestion came from DEAN.

PASS IT WITH PETROLEUM: When your cat starts hacking, try giving her 1/4 tsp of petroleum jelly. This will help ease the hairball through the digestive tract rather then onto your carpet. If your cat doesn't like the taste of it, you can take advantage of his fastidious nature and put it on a front paw or under his nose. Being a cat, she will be inclined to clean it off.

TRY A TASTY ALTERNATIVE: Some hairball lubricants are downright delicious to cats. Pet stores sell several delectable kinds, like Laxatone and Petromalt.

BUTTER KITTY UP: One of the most effective hairball remedies is butter, and cats love it. Besides being a natural lubricant, butter makes the gall bladder contract and empty bile, a mild laxative, into the digestive tract. This helps speed hairballs out of a cats' system before they cause trouble. Give 1/2 to 1 tsp of butter once a day for a week. You don't want to use butter too often, though, because your cat could go from having hairballs to being a butterball.

FIX IT WITH FIBER: Sometimes a high fiber pet food is all it takes to accelerate the passage of a hairball. When shopping for a high fiber food, look for one containing 3.5 - 10% fiber..fiber content is listed on cat food labels.

FOIL THE FLEAS: If your cat is infested, she could be grooming herself more then usual and consequently swallowing more hair. If you have a tried-and-true flea busting method, use it and your cats hairball problem should improve.

COIF YOUR CAT: Combing and brushing your cats fur everyday can do wonders for hairball prevention. Cats shed hundreds of hairs a day, especially in Spring and Summer. If you brush these hairs away you cat won't be swallowing as many.

WIPE HIM DOWN: After grooming kitty, use a damp washcloth to remove any loose hairs the brush may have missed.

TAKE HIS MIND OFF HIS FUR: Some cats have personalties that make them compulsive lickers--they just can't get enough of grooming themselves. Over-grooming can also be a response to stress. Give your cat a much needed distraction..try playing with her more so she has something else to put her energy into.

Tomorrow: Constant meowing. Keep those suggestions coming in.

Today we are discussing the following solutions:
FELINE ACNE--suggested by EVIE!!!

FELINE ACNE:

CLEAN IT DAILY: Gently washing your cats face with a mild soap and washcloth will remove surface bacteria and help break down material that may be plugging oil glands. To be most effective, the washcloth should be a little warmer than a baby's bath, but not scalding, Gently scrub, then rinse well with warm water to remove the soap.
DO NOT USE HUMAN DEODORANT SOAPS, which can irritate.

ADD SOME HEAT: Another way to help open clogged glands is by holding a hot pack to the area. The Vet recommends wetting a cloth with hot {NOT SCALDING} water. Wring it out and hold it to the affected area for about 5 minutes or until the cloth cools down. Do this once a day until the acne goes away.

REACH FOR ECHINACCA: Given orally, this infection battling herb, which is commonly sold in health food stores, may act like a mild antibiotic, stopping acne from the inside out.

RAID THE PLANTER: Applying a thin layer of gel from the aloe vera plant will help ease discomfort cause by painful acne. If you do not have an aloe vera plant, you can buy the gel at most health food stores.

DON'T SWAP MEDICINES: Drugs made for people are unlikely to be helpful when given to pets. Using acne products meant for humans will more then likely worsen the acne.

AVOID THE SQUEEZE: When a serious acne outbreak is making your pet uncomfortable, you may be tempted to squeeze the pimples yourself. DO NOT do it, squeezing pimples can be painful and in some cases will cause infected material to spread beneath the skin, causing a deeper infection.

LOOK AT THE BIG PICTURE: While most outbreaks of acne will stick around for a few days and then disappear, sometimes it's a constant problem. It may be that there is something in your pets environment--a certain type of flea collar, or the presence of household pesticides that's causing the problem. Try substituting an herbal flea collar which can be purchased at most Pet stores.

KEEP those suggestions coming in. Tomorrow we will cover Worms.

TODAY we are talking about DIABETES in Cats...today's topic bought to you by MIKE.

DIABETES IN KATS:

KEEP THEM TRIM: Being overweight can make diabetes much more difficult to control..we see these 16-pound cats that are producing insulin, but not enough.
To keep kitty trim and at a healthy weight the Vet recommends measuring her/his food to make sure you are not over feeding. You should hold back on the table scraps, which can pile on the pounds. {but we love them so}

SWITCH TO A HIGH-FIBER DIET: Giving kitty high-fiber foods can help stabilize the rate at which fuels enter the cells, keeping keeping blood sugar levels more constant.

KEEP THOSE PAWS MOVING: Exercise is important because it helps control weight. In addition, the more your kitty exercises, the less insulin her/his body requires.

GIVE MEDICINE REGULARLY: Perhaps the most important aspect of treating diabetes is to prevent blood sugar levels from swinging widly from high to low. That is why VETS recommend giving your pet medication at the same time each day.

REWARDS FOR GOOD BEHAVIOR: NO body enjoys getting shots, your pets included. To make the experience as comfortable as possible, be extremely loving, gentle and patient. After the shot reward kitty with plenty of LOVE and perhaps a small treat.

KEEP A SWEET HANDY: Giving kitty insulin will sometimes cause blood sugar to plunge too low, a condition called HYPOGLYCEMIA, so be sure to always have on hand a source of sugar if you have a diabetic pet...some vets recommend a small finger of honey or Karo syrup.

IF your pet experiences HYPOGLYCEMIA please take to the Vet ASAP.

Remember to keep the ailments coming in...tomorrow we will cover Feline acne.

This month we will be writing about KITTY HOME REMEDIES. I have a good list going so far, so continue to send in ailments you want me to write about.

Today's ailment comes from my brother, Winston and he chose AGGRESSION as today's ailment because we are dealing with it on a daily basis with Sheba.

FOR CATS ONLY: AGGRESSION!!!

Give a squirt of water: You can discourage aggression in some cayts by squirting them with water, keep a loaded bottle ready then squirt him/her if they get too tough. Purrty soon they will get the hint. {this actually will not work for Sheba}

Plan ahead: If you can figure out what is behind your cat attacks--if he/she always leaps when you're rustling newspaper, for example--you can forstall the ambush by tossing him/her a fave toy before the attack.

Keep Kitty busy: Cats have loads of energy, and they'll be less aggressive if you help him/her burn off steam in a more socially acceptable way. Having vigorous play sessions with exciting toys like balls will wear kitty out and they will nap rather then attack.

You can also buy calming remedies at your local pet store, or retail store or online.

This is it for today..please keep the suggestions coming and you'll be mentioned in my blog.

PS: I don't know why my Halloween pictures won't load upright :(

Countdown to Halloween---Day 1
Has everyfur that wanted a broom ride had one? I want you to show your manners and thank the Witch girls for everything they are doing for us these 3 days. See the tabby in the photo with her kittens? She said her name is Melanie and she had a home. Her Mom and Dad gave her food and toys, but when she was about 4 months old she started acting strange and rolling on the floor. Her people thought she had gone mad and threw her out. Now she doesn't trust people. Melanie told me that a lady comes by with food and has asked her and the kittens to move in with her, but she is a little leery after the last experience with humans. I told her to go ahead and take her family and go with the lady, because there are nice humans and this lady sounds like one. Here comes the lady now. She picked up Melanie and was smiling and laughing, put her in a carrier with her kittens and off they went to a loving home. Glad she didn't spot the rocket or think it strange that costumed cats were dancing around with the others. Crazy cat ladies are a breed of their own, and it's Halloween, so what can I say? Gotta love 'em!

Nose kiss for Ammie!
I knew you would get to trusting your new mom. I'm so proud of you! I like the feel of grass under my paws. But I did not get any fleas. We get free revolution with our health plans so mama keeps it on us, just in case. Icky! Katya will probably be going to the vet cos she was eating leaves and things. And we get wormer every six months, too. Misty is hiding cos she thinks she is the one going away. I will have to crawl in and meow at her. Purrs - Bennie

Hi Ammie, Tickle Monster & Angel YumYum
Lost my furdad Champagne DeLancer today so grandma will be taking off a few days from blogging. Grandma does not know what he died from as he was not sick or anything. Grandma rescued him when he was a kitten along with his brother in 2011, soon after they moved into this house. Grandma is devastated.
Love hugs and many kisses

How are you sweetie? and your dear Mama? My Mom was not feeling so good today, but I think she's better now. We just had a little nap, and I cuddle up to her and purred. Sending love, hugs, and a vote, GG

Countdown to Halloween---Day 7
More from About.Com. When the Great Depression hit, an interesting thing happened. As poverty and crime and the Industrialization of America increased, the "mischief night" pranks became malicious and harmful. Adults started organizing Halloween events. Instead of having hordes of boys vandalizing the town, they were presented with structured, safer activities. In 1939, the phrase "trick or treat" appeared for the very first time. There was a slight lull during World War II, when sugar rationing limited candy production, but it has since become a multi-million dollar business. In 2005, 80% of adults said they would be giving out $40 worth of candy. Trick-or-treating for candy is primarily done in America, the British Isles, and Canada. Thanks to mass media the custom has spread to the rest of Europe, Australia and New Zealand.
Now, let's do some early partying and tomorrow we'll do more getting ready for Halloween.

Hi Ammie
Princess Diaries: I bet you thought I forgot about sending out Thank You's for my Birthday but I didn't...MOL... It seems like I haven't been around forever so it sure was a surprise when I saw every kit who visited me on my Birthday way back in August...How do you say Thank You to such wonderful friends who still cared enough to come to my page and leave Birthday Wishes, Birthday Songs, Gifts, Balloons & Treats even though I've been MIA for a really, really, really long time...Need I say, it has all been my Mommy's fault that I haven't been here...It seems she can't manage anything but me and my Daddy with her work schedule...I guess the woman isn't able to multitask anymore...I told her it's cause she's OLD and just doesn't have the zip, vim or vigor she used to have...MOL...I am not being rude, just truthful...Well, I turned 12 and may I say it was a purrfect Birthday...My Mommy picked me up and we danced all around as she sang Happy Birthday to me, I got extra treats, a really soft, cuddly blankey with paw prints and a Scratch & Spin from my parents...Of course I got tons of kisses and cuddles and love but then again I get that every day....I wish I could visit all the time like I used to but Mommy just can't help me keep up with CC on a daily or even weekly basis anymore...I miss you and hope everyone is well and happy...Thanks again for making my Birthday extra special and for being such wonderful friends and I'm sure I'll be seeing you soon, at least I hope so.....Purrs & Whisker Kisses, Princess Oreo Cookie
